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. Advertisements

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.

Transition

It’s November and slightly warm but there’s a gentle breeze; the scent of fall dances into my nostrils carrying with it a feeling of freshness, a peaceful transition, death but so tranquil and pleasant.

Swimming in the depths of emotions contemplating your thoughts your sadness and your stress sometimes the pain engulfs you become one with it Tirelessly gliding your body through the waters speak to the sea mute the distractions let the unknown consume you Feed your soul with the power, only an unstoppable force such as water can…
