Reckless

Though I’ve been reckless and selfish, our memories are engrained in my mind. Your tender words have been inscribed on my heart; Perhaps they were lies, Perhaps it was the truth that you were too afraid to accept; I hope it’s the latter, no matter how dangerous that may be.   Picture taken by me, NYC….

Foggy Mind

Shrouded in darkness, the overbearing weight of negativity Creeping in like the fog that rolls in overnight A silent killer, eating at me from the inside. In no time, I got lost in the dense, opaqueness All the thoughts in my mind, obfuscated.

Daily Prompt: Disappear

A wolf in sheep’s clothing, that’s what he was. Every now and then you questioned his sincerity, claiming to be soft and tender like the sheep, yet he stepped on you with paws, paws that encased talons which ripped your heart to shreds. When aggravated or displeased, he gnarled like an angry wolf, ready to…

The Burden

Leave when there’s nothing left to lose. Eventually, you’ll lose your sanity. The weight of the lies and manipulation, burdens your conscious like the snowfall on tree branches.

More Than a Feeling

Feeling lost again. Seems to be more than just a feeling, more like a lifestyle.   Pic taken by me on Fulton Street by South Street Seaport, NYC.

Do Not Enter

Bombarded by negative thoughts, a war zone inside my head. Bombs go off, stand tall like a soldier, I want to fall down and cry.

Contrast

It’s like, old money versus new money.    

Warning

Beware of unclear boundaries and unspoken expectations. Pic shot by me in Financial District, NYC.

It Will Be Okay

Sometimes I wonder, Do I take enough time to pause? To think? Maybe I continuously repress less desirable feelings. Coasting on autopilot, acting like I’m unbothered. I’ll allow myself to think that everything will be okay, it will all work itself out. Maybe if I believe it enough, it will be true.   Pic taken by…

Selfish Love

A relationship extended beyond its expiration date because they lacked the courage to leave, to walk away from that which was unfulfilling. Compromising contentment and peace for convenience and familiarity, because they invested so much time. Never mind the instability, the pain inflicted upon one another. What was thought to be “love,” was only selfishness….

NYC Summer

Inescapable heat intensified by concrete and steel. Throngs of people crowd the streets, dirt envelops all surfaces, the scent of rancid garbage permeates the air. Despite it all, the rain is beautiful on a steamy day; the petrichor feeds my soul and relief has washed over my body.    Pic taken by me at The…

In the Present

Slaves to time, a concept that quietly dictates our lives. Getting things done while waiting for it to pass, so we can overcome certain feelings, and look forward to pleasantries We anticipate events and outcomes; self-induced anxiety. We live as if time really is a linear concept But what is time really? How do you…
