His Melodic Apologies by Forrest Jamie

He spends a lot of the time apologizing to me
for the days that go by between texts and a life so busy.
I think I’ve learned something important, though;
I can’t have someone like that in my life –
someone so fickle.
not right now.
As much as that pains me to admit,
for my own recovery and sanity,
I know I need someone dependable and constant.
And he’ll just apologize again,
with some more empty comments and half-promises.
This sinking feeling in my heart and stomach
knowing I’m letting go
of someone so important
because
I can’t count on him.

DISCRIMINATION, Poetry by Rashika Roberts

Genre: Pain, Sadness

DISCRIMINATION by Rashika Roberts

The dull ache moves slowly from my head to my chest;
Thumping thumping, the sound never misses a beat.

I am warm inside, but feel so cold;
I shiver with fear as the rain drips from my face.

Falling with weakness;
my strength lies in my humble heart.

Filled with sadness;
a new dawn is near.

The pain is not gone.
The hurt is not over.

In time my head will lift higher than the clouds.
Every minute promises healing.
Life goes on.
