turn around – poem by Gabriela Marie Milton #poetry #poetry collection

I am an external representation
I ask questions about the internality of things
the sweetness of berries on my tongue 
the anarchy of flesh during torrid nights
blindfolded by you
I cry
the rustle of fresh ivy
the unspoken
unbound in my blood
mi amor
turn around

      1. I know how it feels Bo. Try. That is what I do. I try.
        Take care. Lots of love to you.

  1. ‘the anarchy of flesh during torrid nights’ – I love this! Thank you for sharing your work Gabriela 🙏😊❤️

    1. Ingrid, I am so grateful for your kind words. Glad you enjoy that line. I just read your beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing too.
      Huge hugs to everyone.

  2. Spicy. Lovely poem, Gabriela. “the anarchy of flesh during torrid nights” so relatable when not in flesh in dreams.

    1. Good morning and thank you so much Timothy. In dreams… Isn’t it everything a dream? 🙂

      1. Bitcoin once bitten has a bite to. Makes sense within the realm fo fleshly dreams.

      2. Makes sense inside the Matrix too. “Mining” in the Matrix 🙂

      3. Or a bit of masochism in the Matrix? You probably don’t want to go there, and neither do I. We can leave at alliteration and forget the metaphor.

      4. Agree. Let’s forget the metaphor. The kitties are sending purrs and treats.

      5. Give them a hug and a kiss for me. Our kitties send you a kitty clowder collaboration of kisses, purrs, and hugs.

      6. Thank you so much. They are as happy as they can be.
        xoxo

  3. Gorgeous, Beautiful Button. So lovely each word. My favorites:

    “the rustle of fresh ivy
    the unspoken
    unbound in my blood”

    So beautifully enticing your words are always a treat and an experience. I am sending you lots of love packaged in pieces of a rainbow I saved, carried by thousands of monarchs and kissed by the flutter of a hummingbird’s wing.
    Love you,
    Honeybun 🦋 🦋🦋🦋🌈🌈🌈❤️❤️❤️🌹🌹🌹

      1. I’m also a poet I started today on the app but I wrote unknown facts to get people’s eyes opened and be diverse

      2. Where are you located? Because if you are in the US I may be able to help.

  10. I am in South Africa unfortunately you have to know how the system works because in politics here people are silenced . There is no freedom of speech and it’s hard cause I’m 15

      1. I also want to write my own poetry but I have issues with self doubt.
        I think after reading your poems, I’ll find motivation and inspiration to show mine to the world😊❤️🔥🌍

      2. Please do not self doubt yourself. Don’t think about. Write and let your muse quite you 🥰

      3. Thank you❤️😊👍
