Lotus Woman

You are enough and you are more. You are more than the money that you cannot spend and the things that you cannot afford. The clothes and masks sold in stores do not seek out to make you feel beautiful. They want to disguise you and cover you up. They sell make-up designed to cover your scars and the color of your skin. Companies are … Continue reading Lotus Woman

Let Me Speak – A Compilation of Weeks.

i want to fall in every sunrise.   like it’s my last day to breathe.   i want to coat myself in colours.   a shining technicolour that’ll shield my vision.   entwined in a bubbling concoction, hiding truths.   and i’d rather not consume today or tomorrow.   simply pacing them on the shelf to hide. bare and shivering.   stripped from any warmth. … Continue reading Let Me Speak – A Compilation of Weeks.

I’ve always been an “it’s a sign” type of girl I made everything a sign whether it be finding a penny on the street, seeing a motivational sign at a coffee shop, or meeting you, I always took it as a sign. You see, I believe in fate. Everything happens exactly when it happens for a reason. It was all a part of this plan … Continue reading yet

5W1H

I have so many questions. Who: Who do you think you are? Who do you think I am? For you to plant sunflowers in me, only to rip them at their roots from the garden in my heart. What: What crazy thoughts were going through your head? What made you think that you could destroy me without destroying yourself? The one place you sought refuge … Continue reading 5W1H

Repeat After Me

Repeat after me: You miss the feeling of being in love Giving your everything to someone unconditionally Because they meant that much to you You patiently wait for his attention, a text, a call, anything. But while you’re up late at night worrying about him, not once, do you cross his mind. Repeat after me: You deserve so much more than staying up each night, … Continue reading Repeat After Me

Updated Cowardice

Stick through the excusesof old rationality forcing two polarizing forces into sympathy. you can’t be seen if not first touched! but do not! do not! touch me for fear I might touch you? and so we stand here with fingers pointed in accusations implied when internally stricken with nerves touching signals touching people touching fear in those same old same old glances.

Mother Nature

Women are like nature, yes,   but their relation is most deeply rooted in their ability to grow back after being run over.   Withstanding both floods and droughts, women withstand, as nature withstands.   Yes, women are gentle like flowers, but they overcome destruction by the hands of men;   A destruction the trees know too well, a violence in which our ecosystem is too … Continue reading Mother Nature

2 AM

Endless summer nights, cruising through the empty streets Peacefulness fills the air as time passes by slowly Sinking in that I’ll only be your 2 AM calls He needs someone to talk to That’s me When will you be my 2 AM calls? Thinking about how things would be different if I was the one Sleepless nights, bloodshot eyes The face that’s becoming unfamiliar, who … Continue reading 2 AM

some days i feel a lot like supermarket flowers

today i woke up and my coffee tasted more bitter than usual, painfully hotter, almost purposely harmful. the cold wind felt like stinging paper cuts against my face as i walked down the street and formed tears in my dried eyes against their will. i can no longer look into the mirror because it reminds me too much of everything i’m not but could be. … Continue reading some days i feel a lot like supermarket flowers
