Your voice by Jetro Caldeira Jr.  What was the first thing you heard when you woke up today? Your voice,  traveling down the ear-drum, whispering “I love you” and your voice ever so tenderly saying that you’d miss me when I’m gone.  Slowly you walk behind me, gently kiss my neck and your voice  takes me on a journey down a path of endless to-do lists,  upcoming Sunday adventures which you created. Your voice  lingers throughout the day, creeping into the night when we’re alone.  Your aroma— cherry blossom, overpowering your voice  reminding me of the dinner plans you had made because I’ll  never remember them on my own. “Lie down with me” your voice  says to me in that authoritative tone that you enjoy. “You’ve been away from me all day don’t you miss my voice?” Your voice?  My love that’s exactly what I’m trying to runaway from.  While I lock myself away and attempt to read, yet your voice  sharp enough as it already is, yearns for my attention  and my prompt presence is needed in the bedroom, yells your voice.  Why can’t I just be alone for ten minutes? “I need you babe.” “You need me?” “Yeah it’s really important....kill that bug!” Your voice  demands of me. Cicada, she decided that you shall die  today. “Time of death roughly 2PM.” Laughter from your voice fills the immediate funeral with joy and happiness  while lifeless carcass makes its bed on hardwood floorboards. Your voice  calm in this moment reminds me why I fell in love with you.  Yes I love you but there are times I get annoyed by your voice  I have these days where I just want to be alone in silence  and the last thing I want to hear in this world is your voice.  #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #writersofinstagram #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram
You can tell that I no longer want to be here,  yet I follow your footsteps in the sand.  I’m no longer excited to go out and all I want to do is stay home but it’s because I’m homesick. “Come on J, let’s go out. What? You don’t want to go to the beach anymore?” Nope, not really. I’d rather stay in. I’m exhausted and my disgracefully pale ass Brazilian skin is screaming to hide from the sun’s rays. “We’ll go to a beach on the other side of the island J. Come on.” “Fine.” I say with no ounce of excitement lingering on my face,  yet I follow your footsteps in the sand.  Wandering Puerto Rican coastlines,  chasing waves, changing days, from Jeeps to Kias, homes to studios, Air b&bs locked behind gated communities, keypad elevators which you refuse go in and rather walk up 67 steps towards the apartment instead of facing your fears.  Listening to you call Condado smoke shops searching for Juul pods because you can’t stand smoking off-brand mango pods is the highlight of my day. “How the fuck don’t they have Juul pods? They’re the only motherfucking store on this entire island that sells this shit.” Seeing you get mad at someone else other than me makes my day.  Even though I no longer want to stay and miss home,  I’ll follow your sandy footsteps anywhere. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #writersofinstagram #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #poetrylovers
They teach you to love everyone  but not accept everyone. Everyone should follow in accordance  to what is stated in the leaves  of this document.  Follow it to a T and don’t you dare veer from its teachings.  It’ll take years but you can  change. You’ll get better. Saved.  Saved. You will be saved from yourself.  Learn from our ways so your ways  can change, and you’ll grow into  a stronger person. —And that’s what happened. —How you were lost.  Locked behind closed doors,  barren church halls where walls sop up vocal vibrations radiating  from sealed minds  damaged beyond  repair. — And that’s what you became. — A poem, revised to the point where language is lost between the leaves of each draft.  Filed away, hidden beneath chambers of ignorance.  Ignorant souls now left sole on behalf  of tarnished years of mental abuse.  my mind fucked  from the constant preaching of  salvation  eternal damnation  that will arise if you just don’t  change  and open your mind to the bullshit their bullshit served  on silver platters  garnished with slivers of Freud. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #writersofinstagram #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #poetrylovers
I’m easy to love by Jetro Caldeira Jr.  It’s easy to love me  whenever I’m fed.  Whenever I’m reading a book, engulfed  in the plot and invested in the characters.  It’s easy to love me  whenever you play with my hair  or when you let me play with yours—I melt.  I’m easy to love  when you want to stay in bed all day.  I’ll sink right beside you  and there is where we’ll stay.  I’m not easy to love  on days where I can’t love myself,  and that’s when I need your  love the most. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #writersofinstagram #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #poetrylovers
Train Poem Series #3 by Jetro Caldeira Jr.  You looked past the walls I had risen.  You made me feel comfortable,  taught me that I deserve happiness —that I deserve love.  You showed me that we’re all a little fucked up.  Still not certain about anything  in my life,  but I’m glad that I met you. #trainseries #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts
Tired by Jetro Caldeira Jr.  I’m tired. A tired that sleep can’t cure.  It’s nights like these where I just want to run  away. Run away and just be alone.  Alone and disconnect from life, embrace  the silence and escape my inner demons.  I feel alone, worthless, unsatisfied  even when you tell me that I am loved.  You hate seeing me sad, and I’m sorry.  I’ve been apologizing more lately.  Sorry about that, it’s just a habit.  Neverending thoughts rushing through my mind.  Stop talking so much, you’re annoying them.  Be better. Not good enough, be better.  Try harder. You’re not trying hard enough.  Why does being alive have to hurt so much?  Smile, they will never know you’re suffering.  You’re just weak, you will never get through this.  If they really cared about you they would have been there for you, but you’re a burden.  Cinderblock shoulders sit with me daily  invading—colonizing my being.  I’m tired I can’t wait to sleep. I’ve been  up all night thinking about the many  ways that I have been a shitty son, friend,  brother to those that I love. Stare at the  ceiling and explore the many ways where  I could’ve done—said something differently.  It’s 1PM. You slept all afternoon.  It’s true I slept all afternoon but it  still feels like a tired that sleep can’t cure. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #writersofinstagram #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #poetrylovers
(Forgot to take a picture on the train today but I still wrote a poem.) Train Poem Series #2 by Jetro Caldeira Jr.  Your skin shimmering, velvety chocolate.  H&M bags collapse off your shoulders.  Your shoulders have been carrying weight  the entire day  and you just can’t wait to get the fuck home.  Girl same, can this day just end already?  There’s a faint stench of churros mixed with piss, or is it piss mixed with churros?  Pissy churros? Is that a thing? Well it is now.  I’m making it a thing.  Pissy churros everybody come get your pissy churros. #trainseries #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts
Starting a new series called Train Poems. Poems that have been inspired/written on the train.  Train Poem Series #1 by Jetro Caldeira Jr.  I wish I could hide  in the intimate spaces between  your heartbeats. Feel our hearts  beat together, one by one, one by one. Each beat beating one by one with one tugging and  pulling the other closer.  Let me be there for you, hold  your hand.  Listen to your anguish.  Nestle my fingers in between yours, feel  your pulse take over and travel  down my spine. Your pulse  reminding me of the countless  reasons why my life matters.  Even when I think there’s no longer a reason left for me to live.  #trainseries #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig
You  Next time YOU see a show do some research.  YOU. Me? YOU. Me? YOU. Me? YOU. Me? YOU. YOU.  I’ll write the words YOU put my name on it.  YOU write the words YOU put YOUr name on it.  YOU just say YOU, just write YOU. Just say YOU.  YOU YOU YOU us, just repeat the word YOU.  YOU walk around—dramatic pause—wear black.  Black wear, YOU wear black, YOU YOU just say YOU.  YOU walk did some drugs, were depressed YOU were.  YOU don’t need an MFA for shit—YOU. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig  #jetroalmacollab
Sleep—nothing better, nothing worse than it. “Be productive”, I’d rather sleep than it.  Always trapped, wrapped in blankets tightly snug. “You need to work.” “No I’d rather ban it.” “Get up you piece of shit and get work done.” “Let’s go do the marathon, I ran it.” You stupid son of a bitch. Get up and  focus on the work you have to get done. “Is that a poem?—Write it!—Don’t scan it.” Don’t sleep, write a poem you’ll feel better.  I’ll write but I think I’d rather plan it.  Plan it! Write! But make sure you get it done!  Sleep—nothing better, nothing worse than it. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #ghazal
I wish I could help take your pain away.  Be there for you, hold your hand—tightly—firm.  Noticed your arms: blues, purples, red—painted.  I want you to feel better, I’ll be here to listen to your heartache & anguish. “Take the pain away. Please I need your help.” You said to me Saturday, tears glistening.  You want to die but please keep holding on.  Notice the beauty life has to offer:  trees, spring’s new born flowers blooming, life, love.  The sound happy babies make when they giggle.  The sound of trickling water, ocean breeze.  Book releases from your favorite authors.  Writing poetry, for people like you.  I know it hurts and you want to die love,  but keep holding on, life is beautiful. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #suicideprevention
— Untitled —  You and I sitting still, wrapped in silence.  Your aroma—oak wood fills the bed room. “Acknowledge the silence” you say to me,  because I talk too much and don’t listen.  You and I, in silence in the brilliant  warmth of space. Your men: CK, Tom Ford spread  across black bathroom counter tops but it  is you I want draped across the table.  Draped across the table, you glistening wet.  You, your touch firm—yet soft warm, embrace me.  #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #poetrylovers
Poetry does this to you, consumes you,  makes you its bitch.—Total control, engulf.  Engulfing, manipulating your soul.  Soul placed—written on page, warm, welcoming.  Welcome home words, soul, heart lingers on page.  Poetry consumes, takes control—I’m yours.  Love, soul flowing through veins spilling on sheet.  Blood, sweat, tears, heart, veins accustomed to you.  Poetry will take control, consume you.  Consume me love, meet me halfway. I’m yours. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #spilledpoetry #spilledwords #spilledthoughts #poetryofig #poetrylovers
I did my half.  You left yesterday and you won’t come back.  Kait I’m sorry that I didn’t make time  for us. I made work my priority  and that’s where I fucked up. A decade passed  but I was not able to make it work.  We did everything right, we got married— our fingers intertwined, our lives made sense.  We had our dream jobs, our husky: Tanner, who only slept on your side of the bed.  Since time kept us apart—life fell apart.  Your part: bed, shelves, books, closet—empty—gone.  Not even Stephen King was left behind for me to remember our love for him.  Even though you’re not here I still thank you, for being light in my time of darkness.  You’re the kindest thing that happened to me.  You showed me the brightness that life offers.  I fought with depression—you held my hand.  You saw my wounds, you loved my flaws and when I couldn’t find self-love you showed me it. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #thepoetslist #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #blankverse #writersofinstagram #poetscorner #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #revision #love #writingcommunityofig
When will you come back?  Gone ten feet under and it’s all my fault.  Last night I saw you on the floor—cold—still.  Jake keeps asking when you’ll be coming back.  I said “It’s complicated”, he asked “Why?” I said you’re with that guy up there—Jesus.  It’s raining today, rainy October.  October it’s raining. Remember when  we went to the park and walked in the leaves? “It’s pouring outside.” Jake told me tonight.  Dewey drop covered cheeks, please come back love. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoetry #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #igreads #heartofpoets #heartofpoetsbloom
Goodbye James  I remember the day you said “I’m gay”. Waking up underneath your ginger hair,  and I could listen to your voice all day. Dad pushed you away when you lost your faith.  I remember the pain you couldn’t bear, when he kicked you out of the house last May.  You left us for months and still didn’t make  up with him. I get it, you weren’t prepared but I really wish that you could’ve stayed.  Remember dad’s words when you left Tuesday?  God will condemn you. He’ll kill you out there!  Fiery locks draped in coffin, wrapped in hate, you laid there: cold, still, peaceful, and still gay.  You needed help and all you got were prayers.  Worthless prayers from the father who betrayed  his son—shunned—you had to live with that weight.  You slit your wrists and there was no repair.  You chose to die and left me with your pain.  You left me. I just wish you could’ve stayed. #dailypoem #poetryporn #instapoetry #poemsbyjetro #creativewriting #poetryeveryday #everydaypoetry #everydaypoem #wordplay #wordporn #instapoet #poetry #poetrygram #poetsofig #writtenword #igpoem #igpoets #writersofig #spilledink #poetryofinstagram #poemsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtpoetry #lgbtpoems #gay #pride #queer
Follow His Work, His Art!  #withrepost • @jetrocaldeira Things I care about.  Write about things you care about most—tea.  Oolong with a drop of honey and cream.
