PAIN

Sometimes, pain is easier,
When you're the one feeling it.

For there will be times,
You watch those you love,
Clutching their chest in despair,
The tapestry of their life,
falling apart,
As the strings holding them together,
Finally break.
And you will want to embrace them,
Envelop them in the safety,
Of your arms,
And cocoon their fragile heart,
With strings of your own.
Until you can save them,
Or destroy yourself.

You will watch,
As they lose themselves in hurt,
And the puzzle of their being,
Disbands into chaos.
Then you will hope to volunteer,
Offer pieces of yourself,
Until they are finally whole,
And you, a mere shadow.
For you would rather,
It be you, than them.

But when life comes to that,
There is nothing you can do,
Except hold them and understand,
It is their battle to fight.
A war, with only one casualty.

Most of the times, love is easier,
When you're not the one losing it. ~SR

This came from me reading the stories of a fellow woman on instagram who was requesting people not to send her creepy texts but that only tempted the creeps more. This all just makes me sad and laugh at our progress. || #quote #poet #poetsofinstagram #instapoetry #igwriters #poetryporn #wordswithkings #instagram #creativewriting #minimalism #instawriter #wordporn #artofvisuals #literature #artists #writer #poetryisnotdead #instagood #writersofinstagram #poetry #poetsofig #abstractart #writerscommunity #igers #wordgasm #wordsmith #instadaily #art #prose

Since I never shared # 10! Here is my untitled Sonnet, “Sonnet 1” for those of you who don’t know what a Sonnet is, it’s simply a fourteen line poem written in iambic pentameter (five iambs per line) (iamb meaning a stressed syllable followed by an unstressed syllable) in a rhyme scheme of ababcdcdefef gg. This is a Shakespearean style Sonnet inspired by things I feel and experience I suppose. Be sure to swipe to see the illustration done by @sparkyism ! like/comment/follow/direct message me regarding how this poem speaks to you! Much love, sorry for the delay! #sonnetone #zackscottpoems #poetry #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #poems #wordporn #writersofig #words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poets #creativewriting #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #spokenword #poetryisnotdead #igpoets
