drink up

drinking up your words, was far too easy a task. the feelings were evaporating into my world's atmosphere. i could recite the words right out of your mouth as i did for many years when you and i were we securing this connection meant more than most things of what this life could give me [...]


cycling patterns

the space in my heart replicates our home emptiness without notice swung onto restless cycles of sleepless half awake, half dreaming. wandering continuously in endless circles. like swinging swings of metronomes back and forth, back and my heart in the space.  

a day to love

Long gone are the days in which I'd idolize the suave British actor or the sweet, yet flawed teen heartthrob. I have come a long way. We all have. Relationships can be complicated and layered and I think media makes it very easy to ignore the harder parts. But I also think the joyful, deeply [...]


There is so much building inside my heart. The sorrow I feel is so full that I can't contain the tears and they just fall. Aimlessly. I do not know what it is my heart is trying to say. Am I crying for what was? Am I crying for a release? Am I crying to [...]

Reasons why things don't work out usually come from some kind of boundary; usually ones we can't control or ones we choose not to. A lot of things in our lives are out of our hands, but there are many that are. To understand our powers, our abilities and our hearts, there's so much more [...]

We viewed ourselves as adults although we were far that kind of being. We wielded the power as if we earned it and carved little spaces of our lives for the imaginary. A life we created were based completely on how we thought we ought to live. Thank yous and no problems, hellos and see [...]

living peacefully

I wanted to make a digital scrapbook-type image. draft one draft two The above reads: We drove by these creatures of the earth. We saw green grass and blue skies. The trees and grass were of abundance. No longer did our car feel like we were in a sea of others. We were the minority. [...]

the beginning of love

Desire settles in Where a void once lived. Spaces created for defense Of barriers built by stone. Mists of pheromones fall Like autumn leaves drifting Inwards of the breeze. Passion ignites flames. Warmth is immediate, Holding in heat that is raw. this reminds me of times during the beginnings of relationships; when the guards are [...]

I wanted

I wanted to spill my secrets to you, Like how the ink splatters on blank pages. I wanted you to know the depth of my love, Like the scariest fall from the highest mountain. I wanted to know what you were thinking, Like how the fortune teller saw our fates. I wanted you to hold [...]

broken bonds

the inevitable came with a tiny drop, rain trickled down one by one, as speckles reflected under the street light, there was a hopeful glance towards the skies. finding a tiny piece of glimmer in darkness, a lost key found under a pile of blankets, the car drove off without hesitation. a bond of thousands [...]


I'm taking off the glasses, You're making it easier to see. Our conversations speak volumes. Stacks of books flipped through At random sections marked with dog ears I highlighted and underlined. Warm tea, I wanted the flavor. Coffee shop dates tastes so vain. Read me your favorite story instead.

For her, he found it. A tall standing lamp Boxed in an empty hardware store. Opened eagerly, assembling His manliness with nuts and bolts. She scoffed at his effort. Her laugh carried his heartbeat, Fast as light Enough to see her complexion. Well-lit For her, he finally saw.
