Can’t we?

Can’t we just be and still agree to be in peace? P.S.- Why are humans so prone to anger and violence? Why can’t we all just live and let others live in peace? How hard can it be after all, to not pass our unsolicited opinions onto everyone else? Always commenting on someone else’s body,…

Fall asleep beside me

Lie down beside me and tell me about your day, tell me about that guy who was a jerk to you, tell me how the weather today was too hot, tell me about the times when you missed me. Stay awake beside me and take my hand in yours, take me in your arms, take…

Living

Falling, feeling, creating. Living, loving, being. Living.

Anytime you want

Come find me whenever you need me, I promise I’ll be there, always. Come to me when things get tough, I can’t make it any easier, but I promise I’ll stay with you through all of it. Come to me when confusion clouds your mind, I can’t make it any clearer for you, but I…

To be a living paradox

To be truly alive and breathing, to be living and loving, to be sweet and kind, to be innocent and wild, that’s how I aspire to be for the rest of my life. To be with the person I want to be with, to be with the people I love to be with, to be…

Please just stay

There are people who love me, whom I am so grateful to have, and yet, even they can’t get through to me, I can’t let even them in. It’s so hot, and so dark even though the light’s on, I’m sweating and crying and shaking, and I can’t find an escape. I splash water on…

Intoxicating Night

Starless sky, and yet, I find a certain solace, in this darkness that envelopes me. Cool breeze blowing my worries away, warmth of a decent company, making my soul summery. I feel high, I’m high on this night. This intoxication makes me feel so solemn; it almost feels like an awakening. P.S.- What did you…

Highs and Lows

This exhaustion is so intoxicating, making me high, when I’m actually just real down. Maybe I’m not down, maybe I’m better than I’ve ever been before. Being high or down may not be two different things. Being high does not always gives us euphoria, being down doesn’t always means that we’re stressed. Maybe the highs…

The Breakdown

The day before yesterday, I had a breakdown. I thought I was better now. I thought I was over it all. Everything was going well. I was exceptionally happy and content with everything in my life. But then, it hit me like BAM! I couldn’t speak, couldn’t even comprehend what others were saying to me….
