My Body is a Whale
by Helena Nikitopoulos| @wordsbyhelena
And it calls out for love
It calls out to heal
It calls out for her loved ones
To give her wisdom
And strength to be whole again
It calls out for
an end to the pain
that swallows her whole
The worst part
by Helena Nikitopoulos | @wordsbyhelena
The worst part wasn't that she was lying there
With tears in her skin
It was that you sat there,
Your lips curved into a sultry smile.
Your eyes glazed over
That. That was the worst part.
by Abbigail L.M
wrongdoing must be weaved
throughout my fingertips;
engrained into the hand
i am fearful to call my own.
misery follows my touch,
and misery is followed by tears.
hasty hands wipe them away,
only tainting my skin further.
my unfortunate fingertips,
stained purple with the cold
soon, black with the guilt -
stalking me mistake after mistake.
my bed lies hungry,
a predator ready to
unravel the only future
the prey can have.
dreadful tomorrow comes
faster than i can recover
from dreadful today.
not even stars in the world
by Kristina Nikitopoulos
i wish for a world where people get what they deserve
But I believe everyone deserves happiness
even the boy who called me fat,
even the girl who whispers behind my back,
even the people who make me feel like i am not worthy.
these people deserve happiness
they deserve it especially,
because anyone who destructs others
must need to be held more than most
i wish for a world where forgiveness is easy
And kindness is easier
i wish for a star
that holds us close
for a star isn’t enough
because they deserve the galaxy
My True Love is Me
By Helena Nikitopoulos | @wordsbyhelena
I sit in a field of daisies
because all my favourite dandelions
as I cry out to my distant lovers
I am silenced
by the white-yellow flowers
melting on my tongue
as I stand up, fighting the urge to cry
at the intensity of the sun’s eye,
I settle back down into the grassy field
As stems of daisies caress me,
You are exactly where you need to be
