Your Name

Your name is still my favorite.

Hearing your name still brings

a smile on my face and yet,

it also terrifies me.

Hearing your name

awakens the dormant chaos

that resides deep within me,

which sometimes seems big enough

to consume me,

to destroy me,

and all I can do in that moment,

is to remind myself

to breathe.

    Words that gives you butterflies but yet are so breathtaking at the same time because of mixed emotions. Especially a name because it evokes so many memories but that can also be a positive thing because reminding yourself to breathe simply means that you are collecting your thoughts to think and move on and not to sit idle.๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒน

      Exactly what I wanted to say. Thank you for commenting Roy. Reading your words really give me the strength that I’m not even aware that I need. Thank you.

        If youโ€™re unaware you need strength lovely, perhaps you are strong enough….I always told you your strength is matched only by your heart and beauty.๐ŸŒน. Your words represent how strong you are.๐Ÿ˜Š

        Perhaps, perhaps not. Perhaps, it’s only with time that we realize if we really are strong enough. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
