Felt


Your innerness leaked out unfiltered, raw.
We know what’s meant by it.
What little you’ve said elaborated enough.
You were taken in, captured by the moment.
Couldn’t let go, until your temporary obsession was simply felt.
In that moment nothing was deeper; you reached down past the bottom; subterranean.

Nothing was lost in translation, what happened to you happened to another.
It wasn’t an epiphany, it was ‘phantom transference’, another unexpected connection reflected through our eyes.
Like ripples still being felt, we’ve only begun to make our presence known.
Without even knowing it, you came to realize the language of my humanity.

Collected through glances & silences where touches & words no longer dared to cross, we had an exchange.
You saw through the tact that kept me so composed.
Destiny hides in the trivial; gestures paint pictures, while energy sweats spirit profusely.
And experience is its own medium.
We make memories & we take from them what we will.
We’re not strangers anymore, you got me in the blink of an eye, without question.
You completed me, I let you.
Of you & I, there is no further separation.

Quotes: Write Drunk; Edit Sober (Remix)


“Write drunk; edit sober.” -Earnest Hemingway

“Write drunk — drunken with emotion. Whether in love or pain; hatred or joy, write intoxicated and completely wasted in the moment.

Edit sober — when all the winds have calmed, and when your eyes are cleared from the poison of life. Clean it up and make your pain presentable.” -Brittany Rose (elaborating on Hemingway)

This quote describes how I approach writing poetry.
