  • When you’re the person who is always there for others — you feel a lot. You have depths within you, an ocean for a heart, and you sometimes fall for people who are too afraid to swim. You give and you give and you give. You never know how to stop yourself from pouring into those you love. And so, there are moments where a tender ache sometimes forms within your unhinged chest. There are moments where you are left wondering if someone will ever give you the love you so freely give to others, moments where you wonder if there will ever come a time when someone asks how you are doing, how you are coping, how you are healing. See, sometimes the person who is always there for everyone else, needs someone there for them. Sometimes, the person who smiles the biggest holds the biggest hurt. Sometimes the person who encourages everyone around them needs to be told that they are appreciated, that they matter; sometimes they need to be encouraged, sometimes they need to be held — no matter how strong they seem, no matter how brightly they shine. So, if you’re the person who is always there for others, know that your heart is rare. Know that you hold within you an ability to calm storms in people. Know that you give people hope, that you inspire them by acknowledging the pieces of them most ignore, that you make people feel wanted, that you make people feel like they have purpose. However, also remind yourself that you are not invincible. Your heart needs rest. You need rest. Remind yourself that you do not need to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, that you may not be able to save everyone, that you may not be able to heal every hurt. Remind yourself that you deserve to take all of the energy you put out into the world and invest it back into yourself from time to time. That you are worthy of the love you keep giving to everyone else. Remind yourself, that you don’t always have to be strong, that you don’t always have to be the fixer. Remind yourself that you can be human, that you can ask for help; that you don’t always have to be the one to save yourself.

Your phone Died. I would’ve cared. You didn’t. . . We laid on the floor And talked about what we Cared about and what We didn’t. . . When you said, “I Want to stay,” I wanted You to, but also I didn’t. . . I knew what I should and shouldn’t do but I pretended with you like I didn’t. . . I checked the time when You left: 4 am. You were Supposed to have gone Home, but you didn’t. . . You left me a message. “Didn’t mean to grab your shirt. I thought it Was mine, but it isn’t.” . . #judythompsonpoetry

  • Reading Myself ©️2018 As I'm reading the reflection of myself in the mirror An autobiography of my exsistance Told from outside the now, I realize a shift in the narrative voice. What was once gritty and brooding No longer held tight to the bitterness once a gateway held in a "Cable's Reef" Fear and famine Jubilation and jealousy Dancing and Drunkenness Unspeakable and unspoken Hopeful and hopeless All under one hood of fraternal safety a brotherhood of chocolate faces becoming antagonists, protagonists, love interests and supporting portions of the earliest drafts of my character. These chapters made the steel in my narrative necessary to save the book but the genre isn't representing the new developments unfolding. A letter in the rage changed and the cage no longer fit. So i watch as my character self-assesed his own longevity for reprints and sequels while stripping what we've already come to learn about how his mind works How the story will end. How the writer and reader become one in the prologue. I'm watching as the pages of my story rearrange themselves with the gift of fresh wind blowing away the unnecessary and shifting the pillars of the foundations so the truth rings clearer and more precise. And I trimble from the awakening of a story worth being told.
