The Writer Diaries - Micropoetry, September 2016

It's that time again dearest nerdlets! September is rapidly skimming out of view, and I have more micropoetry to share with you.

Sorry if several of these are kind of a downer - I learnt that someone I knew in school had died and... yeah.

I kind of worked through some stuff (the poems for 13th Sep will show you that,) so feel free to skip anything that's bringing you down!

9th September

Nothing deserves pity
More than those
who fear love & compassion
& turn instead to hate
Poor lost soul,
Find your way home soon

13th September (I)

How am I supposed to feel?
They say you died;
A casual friend;
I hadn't heard your name in years.
How am I supposed to feel?
Tell me.

13th September (II)

Do I have a right to grieve?
5 years or more -
Must have been
Never close, even then
Just two birds of the same flock
One bird now dead

13th September (III)

A background fixture,
Left behind when I left the room.
Weren't you younger than me?
Or was it a few days older?
Young & pretty & dead

17th September

No matter
How dark
It may be
There is light
There is good
You are loved

23rd September

The year of mean.
Have my tears,
But cariad, I'm gonna sing

Over the heads of abject liars -
Reaching ears that may hear

  1. I'm very sorry to hear of your loss - even if you weren't particularly close I imagine everything feels very surreal. Know that people are here for you, and once again, some beautiful little poems.

    1. Thanks so much Charlotte :)

      Yeah it's odd to know how I'm 'supposed' to feel. Like there are rules for if someone you're close to dies, and if someone you only knew *of* dies, you say 'oh, that's so sad,' and brush it off. (Harsh but true.) But if it's someone who you knew, but weren't close friends with? You don't really know how to feel.

      Thanks so much for the comment :)

    2. Yeah, it's like with celebrities: their passing is sad but at the same time I have no connection to them so I can't get broken up about it. When it's someone very close it's much easier to react 'appropriately'. But everyone grieves in different ways; I've still yet to cry over my grandad's death at that was almost two years ago. You'll figure it out in the end, even if it takes what feels like forever. Sometimes, though, just honouring their memory can be enough.

    3. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather! I lost one set of my grandparents nearly 2 years ago now, and it catches you at the weirdest of times. Big hugs <3 <3

  2. I'm sorry for your loss! The poems are beautiful, and I love how you're able to express your feelings through them.

  3. *sends hugs and cake* These poems are beautiful and I'm really sorry about the person you know dying. But it's great that you can write about it and process it that way. And I love all the images and just the visuals of the words and yayyyyy. :)

    1. Thank youuuu!!!!! :) (And hugs and cake are always welcome XD )
