Poem: It Enlivens Me – 05/11/20

The colours brighten me,
they take over my soul,
they enliven,
they heighten,
they create a somewhat free-for-all.

In my heart, which I’ll tame one day,
when it is the time to blatantly shine,
I caress memories and emotions borne of
still-bated breath,
I know they’ll surface soon,
and that’s completely fine.

The colour of the day is my favourite,
it emboldens me,
brings a spring to my step,

wearing it, I feel girlish,
and bright and bubbly,
there are no more signs of outward duress.

I cloak myself in my protective garb,
because this is what makes me feel stronger,
less saddened, emboldened,
at large,

my heart, still untamed,
is presently screaming,
multiple voices all
one and the same,
let us talk without hurtful candour,
let us be kind at heart.

  1. Another wonderful poem, Larua. My favorite part,
    “my heart, still untamed,
    is presently screaming,
    multiple voices all
    one and the same,
    let us talk without hurtful candour,
    let us be kind at heart.” Beautiful. ❤️

      1. Aww, show on dms if you’re happy with the new transformation! Even if you’re not, still show haha I’ll console you how it’s not thaat bad. XD
        I’m glad to hear you’re doing a bit better. I had a tough week or two myself so couldn’t check up on you and it was bothering me at the back of my head. Take care. Let’s catch up sometime soon 💜☺

        1. I’m going over the colour now as we speak as it was a bit faded when I first did it. Will defz show once styled in DMs 😀 Sorry to hear you had a tough two weeks, I thought something might have been awry as your posts stopped temporarily. I was actually thinking of you today and wondering how you are. I’ll message you soon xx
