Broken | Poem


I didn’t appreciate the little things before;
Days that weren’t wetted with despair, where
I dared to believe we would all live forever.
Pushed screaming through the door of no return
I learned that circumstances burn flesh
and bone. The worst times I’ve ever known.
Caught in a loop, it replays second by second,
Day by day, wound by wound. Favoured singers
crooned in the background. It was a comforting sound.
Mental time travel transports. Caught between
the edges of life and death, each breath
etched along the tracks of my tears.
One blistering moment. Don’t scratch it.
Can’t help it. Won’t fix it.
It hurts.

Nomads’ Land | Poem

nomads' land poem by ms moem. Not everyone in your life will stay. This is a poem about those who simply pass through.

Nomads’ Land
It was a popular tourist spot
that people liked to visit;
they were drawn to its quirks
and all the things in it.
They pitched tents and wandered.
They explored explored every part,
carved their names into tree trunks
and took the place to their heart.
The high season was busy
before they left, one by one.
The streets soon became empty
With everybody gone.
Investing in property
they’d never sought to do.
With no intention of staying,
they were only passing through.

Nomads Land is a poem about people who come in and out of your life, and relationships that don’t last.
Written by Ms Moem.
