Poetry: All You Need to See

By Monica C. Voskamp

Staring at the page

Lost by blotted lines

Lost in the journey

Lost in time.

If only we could

Turn back time.

If only we could

Change our minds.

If only we could

See things differently.

If only is not real

So sorry honey,

But face the facts

It’s time to move on.

Read the next line.

Leave yesterday’s world.

Write the next words.

Let go of the hurting.

You still have now.

Turn a new key.

Unlock a different door.

Travel a better road.

Create great memories.

You still have now

And this is all,

You really need to see.

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤

Poetry: The Cleansing

By Monica C. Voskamp


She dipped her toes in the crystal blue

Warm shivers ran down her back

The gentle coolness relieving

All that was past.


She stepped into shallow waters clear

Slowly sank down to the earth

And just let the water drench

Her body with gentleness.


She closed her eyes in the trance

Tilted her chin to the sun

And let the magic

Carry her away.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
