Optimistically Naive

Optimism feels new to me, when you have been burned one too many times- the options feel slim. You’re looking at me with love in your eyes, Like you’ve known me for lifetimes on end, it is as if you scoured every burrow wondering where I lay down my head, Once you finally found me,… Continue reading Optimistically Naive

Silence

It has been interesting, all the twists and turns, The miscarriage of all the words involved. Speaking and yet not saying anything of substance, So why am I feeling so lost? Affected by the debris of your broken promises, Of narratives we tell ourselves to keep from changing orders already put in place. Expectations dropped… Continue reading Silence

Temptations Rising

  Our eyes meet, begging to have a conversation; The twinkle in yours draws me in closer and closer. The intoxication I feel is better than a mediated high, One that takes me into mindless euphoria, One that shapes the way I feel for you. The point of the matter is discussed through a slight… Continue reading Temptations Rising

Strangers  

"Between what is said and not meant, and what is meant and not said, most of the love is lost." -Khalil Gibran Like passing ships in the night, we keep missing each other. Your presence felt heavily like a gust of wind or a perculation of goosebumps. We miss out on the little instances of… Continue reading Strangers

OCTOBER’S SONG

The air was crisp and thick with last nights rain, The sun kissed the tall autumn skyline as birds sang their soliloquies And I was standing there unchanged. The illustrious clouds painted a vivid cascade, so heartbreakingly beautiful that it was difficult to leave. It was difficult to comprehend The boundless constraint of nature. The… Continue reading OCTOBER’S SONG

In Between

I have found myself in a state of in between,   a limbo-like state that makes me constantly feel like I'm dangling from the edge of a cliff, one hand simply separating me from plummeting to my untimely death. I am between two selves, two feelings, two possible outcomes of my life's journey. I am between liking… Continue reading In Between

food for thought

What if we actually decided to be honest about what we were thinking? What we were feeling? What if we actually said what we meant to say instead of a redefined, edited and manufactured version of our thoughts? Our feelings? Our emotions? What if we didn't hide behind messages of "it's fine" or "it's not… Continue reading food for thought

memories p1 

    I was rummaging through my closet and came across a box of photographs and there you were. Your effortless beauty and heartwarming smile frozen in time, captured by a single random moment of wonder and curiosity. I remember that day vividly: I had just purchased my new camera and you were the first… Continue reading memories p1

Truth

I wanted you to know the truth and nothing but  and yet a spiral of lies consumed us. the type that allowed us to be friendly for a while and yet conniving and evil when the day was up. the truth behind betrayal is that you never see it  coming, it blinds you like a… Continue reading Truth

Questions

I often wonder what would have happened if I had said it back then. Would things have been different? Would you still be the person I know today? Would we still maintain the relationship we have today? Would those three letter words impact the course of our journey through this world? Would it have made a… Continue reading Questions
