Relocate

A new neighborhood where my new home is where I live my new life with my old brain that stores memories of a life that can’t be escaped Evershifting, which version of myself will I be today? pulling on pieces, arranging them to fit the narrative I wish to create for myself Relocate, keeping yourself…

Phenomenal Beauty

A rainbow, so seemingly simple, yet complex A beautiful display of science above us, a natural work of art Sun rays, water droplets, light refraction, reflection Standing proudly, stretching yonder for all to see Radiant, amazing in its own right In ideal conditions, a double rainbow is visible A spectacular sight becomes magnified; The rainbows…

Broken Boys

They leave messy trails behind them, physically and emotionally; the boys who break hearts The empty love that wafted so effortlessly off their lips and into the mouths of the unassuming; they whispered reassurances during moments of weakness, only to break said promises later Their actions show that their words carried no weight They lash out…

Nostalgia

Summer reminds me of my youth; chasing fireflies, being fearless, picking up insects, turning over rocks, playing in the dirt Blissfully ignorant Ocean water dances on my body, heat radiates off the concrete, jungle gyms and sprinklers are my best friends Time flies and I’m awash with nostalgia I’ve lived a life already childhood seems…

Deception

Don’t lose us

subconsciously you know we both have the propensity to slip through each other’s fingers and fall into the tempestuous abyss of our reality   Pic taken by me: Vatican Museum, Vatican City – Rome, Italy

What Happened?

Now all you have is the silence The unspoken words float through the air, a suffocating thickness We disregard each other as if we weren’t just completely intertwined under the moonlit stars As if we didn’t just lay our souls bare for each other to witness As if we didn’t lay our chests on one…

Acquiesce

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…

Always There

she received them when she graduated a celebration the valentine’s days of the past sometimes, “just because” placed on her bedside when you were born the celebration of life natural, sweet perfume that permeated the sterile, clinical, unwelcome feeling roses were always beautiful even when they were dried for her artistic endeavors they were placed…
