Time isn’t the measure for all things. Time isn’t the measure for maturity, for passion, for heart. ☀️

  • I have spent so long counting the days since you happened that I have stopped remembering the days that I lived without you. The late nights, the beautiful mornings when the sun shone so bright it hurt my eyes, the life-changing experiences, the adventures, the laughs and smiles and tears that fell down my cheeks before you. I kept saying that nothing will ever be the same now that you are not here, but I keep forgetting that nothing was the same before you came – it was different, but it was still beautiful. I lived a whole life before you just fine, and I keep forgetting that. And I must accept that even though nothing will remain the same now that you are gone, it will still be a great adventure and a learning experience for me. Even though things have changed and you dipped into my soul and found the shore, but left me drowning, I know that there are new friends waiting for me, adventures I have yet to take, cities I have not yet discovered, food I must taste, stories that I will hear and experiences that I will have before I can say that I have lived a ‘well-rounded’ life. 
And the truth is, I have not seen anything at all just yet. Some of my best days are still waiting for me, and I am hoping that I have left some of the worst behind. So, even though you came for a while and changed everything in a way I never imagined, so did those before you and yet I lived, and so will those after you and believe me, I will continue to live. And I have spent so long counting the days since you came into my life that I have forgotten the days that I have still got left and how much of my journey is still waiting for me. All I need to do is take a step forward, all I need to do is embrace life. Just like I always have every time someone walked away.

  • Bitter November // I sit before my screen
Playing senseless games
With my friends
To ignore the pain
Right in my chest
Caused by the absence 
Of a certain ghost.
I ignore it 
As the days pass by
And the answers 
To the questions 
Start being given
And found 
And the knowledge 
We share 
Becomes deeper
And more meaningful.
But the ache
Doesn’t ease
And the big lie
Being told
By the biggest 
Of them all
Is the one turning point 
That will shoot 
And end me.
And as these faces
Get soaked in tears
And they dry up 
with the air
My heart beats fast
For the lies,
The fiction I’ve lived,
For the one who got away
For the one who 
Dies
And dies every day
Wondering why 
This pain 
had to belong to him
And only him.
I still don’t know
Which touch I’m craving
The one that let go
Or the one 
Who didn’t even 
let me in?
And the lie.
The lie
The lie haunts me
And won’t ever stop
And my head’s spinning
And I need something
But all I’m left with
Is nothing.
An empty stomach.
An empty heart.
An empty soul.
An emptiness.
Why me?
And why you?
And why us?
And why them?
I thought life was finally
Starting 
to make sense
But my heart stops
And beats 
Simultaneously
And I fall
And I’m left 
And I’m crushed.
All of the above
By the people
I love most. - IR

  • On some days, you may feel so heavy as if your feet are dragging. The weight on your shoulders are too much to bear alone. In those moments you find yourself needing to be carried, just to release some of the weight. Just to know someone cares enough to not let you carry it on your own. If you ask for help, the right people will want to. They’ll even be happy you asked💐 @silverleafpoetry

🔸Selected artist: @onthere 🔸Location: Positano
Congratulations and thank you very much for tagging and sharing your beautiful captures with us!
.......................................................
🇮🇹Grazie al clima mite ed alla bellezza del paesaggio, Positano è stato un luogo di villeggiatura sin dall'epoca dell'Impero Romano, come attestano il rinvenimento di una villa e ulteriori rinvenimenti risalenti al 2004. Tipiche le tantissime scalinate che dall'alto del paese giungono in basso, alla spiaggia. Le spiagge principali sono la Spiaggia Grande e quella di Fornillo, entrambe raggiungibili a piedi; le altre sono La Porta, Arienzo e San Pietro Laurito, tutte raggiungibili principalmente via mare.
🇬🇧 Thanks to the mild climate and the beauty of the landscape, Positano has been a holiday resort since the time of the Roman Empire, as evidenced by the discovery of a villa and further discoveries dating back to 2004. Typical the many steps that from the top of the country they come down to the beach. The main beaches are Spiaggia Grande and Fornillo, both within walking distance; the others are La Porta, Arienzo and San Pietro Laurito, all of which can be reached mainly by sea.

.
This is Sarah’s THIRD book club with us! We asked her what keeps her coming back, “this book club is important to me because it creates community around an art that is created in isolation. Poetry was meant to be shared. It brings others together and this book club connects us, across state lines, cultures and continents. 💖”⁣ Sarah also had the opportunity to meet this months author in person! ⁣
Sarah we hope you keep coming back to us, your insight is always incredible!
