Popular Doubt Poems
Running
by Tash Jane

Do you suffer loneliness at night?
Keep a hold
Are you stirred, shattered and shy?
Don't let it go

Is there any doubt when the hurt, the hurt it does you proud?

Draw circles round the targets,
Look how far you've came.
With bare feet, keep running

Still Rise
by Leigh Yah

For months I've been trying to write
Trying to keep my pace, trying to fight
Organizing my words...it felt like suffering from a concussion

Fiction stories I love indeed
Thank you, Lori Brighton
I was able to explore the world in a new dimension.

She says she’s excited to see me. But what if she’s not?
What if she just doesn’t want to hurt my feelings

by someone who looks and sounds
exactly how I may too often seem.

The void inside me quickly over-swells,
and strange skin transforms to spread
while I am left alone to wither.
Shapeless and hollow, that pit,

Metamorphosis, interrupted
by Anjali Pathiyath

I sometimes dream I am a caterpillar
who forgets to grow into a butterfly.
I burrow into leaves, breaking through their delicate venation.
I funnel my uncinate feet through curling petals,
I glide through the pungent weeds of uncertainty
and hang from gossamer threads of doubt.

I sometimes dream I am a caterpillar
blending into the mossy greens growing on decaying walls,
lost in the intricate forest and counting the unseen stars,
