Undressing Facades Through Poems

In last week’s poems, I restricted myself by following the word count recommended by @Streetwritersofficial. Again, Streetwritersofficial is a community on Instagram where writers’ and poets’ works are featured. 

This week, I don’t really feel like being constricted by word count. I think, due to hunger and thirst from fasting, my emotions are all over the place.

I just wrote as usual following the prompts given by Streetwritersofficial but this time I felt like the words that flowed undress many of the things people will probably keep to themselves.

One of the things I still keep reminding myself of is to let what needs to flow. Of course, with myself still keeping a good eye on the steering wheel. We don’t want the ship to sink.

Here are the poems I wrote for this week. I hope you enjoy reading!


Afterthoughts for the last poem:

We’d never understand what something really is until we experience it. Love, for example, is projected to us in many ways. It’s hard to comprehend something invisible, something already tainted, until the moment we come to face it.

The same goes for the deep connection towards something we believe that is above us. I can tell you tales about it. I can invite you to inquire as well. But it’s never in my power to make you believe something until you face it yourself.
