  10. Drowning

    • By Amy O Connor
    • Published by Family Friend Poems October 2020 with permission of the Author.

    This poem comes from Amy O Connor's poetry book, A Beautiful Complexity. The poem explores the overwhelming and sometimes suffocating nature of intense emotions, particularly in the context of love and heartbreak. The poet describes the waves of their feelings for someone and how these waves can suddenly pull them under and leave them gasping for air, unable to escape the depths of their emotions. The poem portrays a sense of powerlessness in the face of strong feelings and the struggle to stay afloat amidst the turmoil.

    in Short Poems

    They come in waves,
    my feelings for you.
    And not pretty whitecaps
    dancing at my feet.

    This short and sweet poem is about the search for true love and how it feels to finally find it. The poet describes their significant other as the one they've been searching for, the one they've been chasing after, and the one who has been the answer to all their hopes and dreams. The poem is a celebration of the deep connection between two people who have found each other and how they are now intimately connected.

  19. Choose How You Spend Your Time

    • By Blake Auden
    • Published by Family Friend Poems August 2020 with permission of the Author.

    I spend an inordinate amount of time in front of an empty page, or a computer screen. In part, because I’m terrified of being forgotten, of living a life that isn’t worth remembering. So I’m constantly trying to leave something behind, be it poetry, fiction, art or music. While this makes me feel better about dying, there is a part of me that wonders how much I’m missing out on. That wonders about how I’m choosing to spend my time in the light. This poem is featured in my debut book Tell The Birds She’s Gone.

    in Short Poems

    You cannot
    slow the setting
    of the sun.

  21. What Healing Is Meant To Look Like

    • By Blake Auden
    • Published by Family Friend Poems October 2020 with permission of the Author.

    I’ve been holding on to little fragments of you for a long time, because I could never bring myself to let you go all at once.

    But deep down, I know I need to let go of these pieces. I can’t move on when I’m living next to these reminders of the people we were - the way we wrapped ourselves in each other. I don’t know what healing is meant to look like, but this feels like a good place to start.
