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.

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….

Path of Least Resistance

Nature, the world’s organic symphony Take some time to listen – Hear the trees sway, sometimes they whisper in a light breeze or howl like the lone wolf on a windy night Birds remind us that wildlife lives among us, chirping, calling out to one another in a foreign language Serving as a background soundtrack…

Happiness

A wise man once told me, you have to make time to do the things that make you happy. It almost seemed too easy – and so it was. I made the time.   Pic taken by me, Coronado Island, San Diego.

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…

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…
