Last Thursday was a proud, proud day for Green Street Poetry. @tohojournal held a launch party for their debut issue, "Unity," which featured about 13 Green Street members as contributors. 
When I set out to create Green Street, I had one goal in mind - discovering and developing the talented writers in this city to give them the skills, the focus, and the courage to become published poets. I had no idea that my partnership and friendship with @acruwriter would help me achieve that goal so rapidly. These humbling moments of accomplishment have been frequent and unrelenting since we really got this project underway, and the astonishing individuals who came together - for Green Street and for Toho Journal - have been like an ever-expanding, strange, but delightful family of friends. 
So thank you, thank you, thank you all!!! For building this community with me and being a part of something powerfully and meaningfully unifying.

Onward.  #greenstreetpoetry #poetry #poets #tohojournal #poetsofinstagram #nationalpoetrymonth #npm #phillypoetry #phillypoets #philadelphiapoets #poemsofinstagram #poem #poems #litmag #journallaunch #phillypoetryscene #phillywriters #phillywriter #philadelphiawriters #igphilly #igphiladelphia #philadelphia #philadelphia_ig #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #writers_together #writercommunity

Today that I choose 😢.
I feel like everyone has that something that they’re addicted to. Some people are lucky, they never find it, and so they never know the bliss of the high, the joy of the escape. Some of us aren’t so lucky, we find our highs. It doesn’t matter how good or bad, how destructive or productive it is, it’s still a high, and when you find it...it’s so hard to give up.

Sundazeeee are my favorite daze of the week ⚡️🙏🏽💕 -
•
•
Mostly because I can wake up to a slow morning, really enjoy my coffee, pray, get some writing in & set my intentions for the upcoming week. The day I can really catch up on ‘me’ time.. although I make time for these things most mornings throughout the week, Sunday is especially my favorite. 🦋 -

I read this quote in a book I’ve been submerged in, I found in soundly fitting: -
“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast, you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.” -

Be present, enjoy the season you’re currently in & love fucking errrthang that crosses you... Happy Sunday!

जिस सराय में चश्मा भूल गए थे अपना, शायद वहीं कुछ भूल आयी हूं,
नींद वींद सपने वपने, दिल भी शायद वहीं भूल आयी हूं..

It's important to have a discussion with yourself before having an argument outside. 
I have started doing this thing recently that whenever I feel I am going to burst out,  I leave the place and ask myself whether it is worthy or not. 
So next time you feel stuck, take a deep breath and think.

Y como clavos ardiendo en el pecho, desdibujo en el aire el recuerdo de tu sonrisa. Incorpórea, y más vaga que el reflejo de una imagen en blanco y negro, avanzas imponente por mis recuerdos desnudando lentamente mis sentidos ahondando en lo más profundo de mi cabeza. Y yo te dejo y te pongo una silla delante, sonrío aunque sé que sólo eres humo.
Echo de menos hacerte el amor con la mirada. Y que con tu sonrisa me devolvieras los besos que no me atreví a darte.
Echo de menos encerrarnos en cuatro paredes y dejar de contar el tic tac de las agujas del reloj de cuero de tu fina muñeca.
Tirar la llave por la ventana y romper el pomo para no salir, es una de las cosas que nunca pude decirte mirándote a los ojos.
Enciérrate aquí y olvídate del mundo. Tengo un millón de besos para darte, y si los acabas no temas. Aún me falta por contar las veces que quiero llevarte al cielo, sin salir de la cama. Contar tus gemidos en una libreta, y reírme en el desayuno de la cara que ponías.
¿Por qué será que uno toca el cielo mientras está pecando? Hacer eterno lo imposible, supongo que es algo parecido a suicidarte lentamente.
Y aunque aguante la respiración para ver si todo se queda parado, ya casi no me queda cigarro para seguir recordándote.
Ya casi tengo olvidado como nos amábamos en silencio.
Ya casi aprendo a vivir sin poner dos tazas de café por la mañana.
Ya casi tengo un pomo nuevo para la puerta.
Ya casi ni te oigo.
Casi ni respiro.
Casi ni te amo.
Casi.

I don’t want someone who’s going to make me forget all my flaws. My flaws make me the person I am, and even though those parts of me sometimes really suck, they’re still a part of me.
And I don’t want someone who hides their true self. Love means seeing who someone really is even their sucky parts, and loving them just the same, if not more, because of them.
I want someone who’s going to see me for me, us for us, and work through all that crap to have a love that means something rather than just looks nice.
I want a love that isn’t storybook because I’m not a stock character.
Some days I’ll be the villain and some days I’ll be the protagonist, the one that saves you. Some days I’ll drive you crazy, and some days you’ll fall into my arms because nowhere else has felt so safe, so right.
Some days we’ll feel like ripping each other’s hair out.
And some days we’ll wonder why we ever fight.
We won’t always have it together. We won’t always shave the answers. We’ll go through things that shake us to the core and make us pull away from each other.
But I want that. I want all of that.
I want you on your worst days and I want you to want me on mine.
I want us to learn all the things that make each other nervous, or scared, or angry, or human.
And I think, what I want most of all, is for us to still choose each other through all of that. And keep choosing each other, day after day after day.
See, I want imperfect love. 
I want someone that sees me, in all the millions of souls in the world, and says, ”I want that imperfect one. She’s mine.”
Because we’re all a little broken.
So let’s be broken together.♥🌼 #writersofinstagram #writersofig

sick of everyone

A letter to those who feel lost. I see you, I feel you, I am you.

A letter to those who feel lost. I see you, I feel you, I am you.

For my nanny, who told me my papa was coming to get her last night. God is good, please keep me and my family in your prayers. We only have a little while now. I am so thankful God is so, so good🖤

We celebrate adults and mountains
Climbers and the climbed
But children are the most impressive
Climbers in my mind
They go from nothing but thier breath
To walk, and speak, and read
All by observation, and a lot of
Creativity
Thinking outside borders that
Adults gives to their dreams
I'd celebrate a child long before
A climber's victory scream

Acheivements ©DevlinD

I’m a conqueror, so I don’t back down from a fair fight. I do back down from traps. I don’t take bait. Swipe left for a #quote from @mo.writes 🖤🥰

Getting ready to tackle the next step. Revision of my novel. Most times a #rewrite is necessary, even if we dread it. But it's a very necessary part of perfecting your work to it's best quality before sending it off to agents. #hopewriterlife @hopewriters #writerlife #writerscommunity #writers

//TO THE GIRL I FELL IN LOVE WITH// The more my messages go
unattended 
the more meaningless my
words become.
What is this dilemma
that you are facing? 
You want to outright reject me
yet you are silent. 
Silence which is becoming
louder and louder with each passing day.
You have to take a decision
whether to break my heart
or accept me,
perhaps as your arranged lover.

After all, I have seen people
falling in love after arranged
marriages. Just give yourself
some time and me one chance.

See it’s simple.
Just how you cannot
make someone love you,
you can’t make someone forget you.
I don’t know how to unlove people.
Can you unread a book after reading it? 
And stop telling me to move on. 
I am trying, okay! 
But failing miserably.
I don’t know how to dump this
abundant love that I carry for you.

Or else I know one way to cope up.
Do you know what losers do?
They self harm. Why?
I am yet to discover that reason. 
Will tell you the next time we meet.

Take care,
A loser.
