BEGINNINGS

This feels like an end. I never knew I’d fade off the things I held dear. There are things I wanted to try a while ago but my heart can’t at this moment. I am halfway through the phase of not wanting to go back. This is bad. Like very bad. I don’t know the […]

‘Goodbye’ feels like letting go and holding on. It is some kind of dark maze that you’re trying to find your way out but end up being a puzzle on your own. ‘So longs’ are like breathing in a bubble. You want to burst out but you end up breathing in the very same air […]

Soul.

I remember her.I feel like she is still the things I think about, perhaps even better than I knew her.Many things about her used to fascinate me. I still want to see her go up the steps of our imaginary spiral crystal stairs as the wind gently shows off her dress.Up and up till the sun […]

Home to Self. 

Many words flow out of my mind in form of poems, feelings and emotions. Well, some have killed me, some have brought me back to life. I am happy about the woman I am becoming. The force, the strive, the fight, the light. It’s all in form of indescribable beauty. With time, you will live […]

Every feeling I want to write down scares me. Every single truth the world has never known is battling with the strength of my bones. I have walked out of myself and tried to look at me in the eyes of someone else who has never loved me The fear of what will cross their […]
