Unpublished Poems From My 2017 Notes

Internal Death

Internal Death

I chose not to publish these poems because I was planning to include them on my manuscript. And I did, it is just that I wasn't lucky enough to get published at that time.

Getting myself published is still on my bucket list. You're mistaken if you think I gave up.

I won't. I'll just equip myself through experience from my fellow poets.

Enough with chatters! Here are a couple of my unpublished poems.

Hoping you'll enjoy it.

  • Internal Death

His words,

how deep it has pierced,

the unfathomable stabs,

the scarring verse---

A purified sword summoned

to shatter the loving-being

in me.

  • Ghosted

    Locked within words of cheer,

    the intimate talks,

    exchange perspectives,

    little brushes of fingers to mine,

    I held tight to the belief

    we’re fine.

    In a snap,

    you disappeared.

    Without hints,

    left me in countless


    unanswered till now.

  • Buried Words

    My heart could bear a thousand stabs.

    Don't mind me breaking, shattered to pieces.

    I won't die.

    Tell me everything. Don't ever veil a single lie.

    For once I knew, heaven knows what you ought to get in return.

    I would kill not only your existence in me but your smiles…

    I broke myself just to paint.

That's it for now. Let me know your thoughts below.

Sending virtual hugs... :)

Thank you for your very kind words, Linda! I just want to keep on writing until I run out of poem to bleed. Sending virtual hugs to you :)

Linda Rogers from Minnesota on September 25, 2019:

Beautiful poetry, beautiful writing. I started writing as a young girl writing in a journal or notebook to fill my soul. Your passion will bless you in many ways.

That's great, Kathleen! You are right. Thank you for your kind words.

Kathleen Cochran from Atlanta, Georgia on September 20, 2019:

I have been writing for 50 years. If you look at my profile almost every poem dates back to the 1970s. Poetry is often how you start writing. Keep at it and good luck.

Thank you, Jodah! I have no intention to give up as I believe soon I'll have my hands on my own book.

I will keep on writing for my passion and dreams.

Hi Artchelle. Don’t ever give up your dream of getting your poetry published. Just keep writing and learning as you go. I had writing sitting around unread for years before I decided to share it online. It is never too late. I am glad you decided to start sharing your writing here.
