Emotion is not meant to feel like war

words deployed during the hardest of times, when butterflies and tongue ties wouldn’t allow me to let you know how I feel… they don’t even bother to last long enough to form a sentence.

Vulnerability

I’ve grown found of affection, Something which has always been foreign to me. There’s something that feelings so homely about a pillow with a beating heart…. Blanket that resignates with body heat… And calm breaths that scream “HOME” This moment is so precious to me. Conscious of the energy we feeding the moment  Too tired toContinue reading “Vulnerability”

I wanted coffee…

A passionate history of empty promises. In the chamber of moments never written. I was waiting for you. Your presence is perfume poured out- No wonder I adored you so much. I just wanted you to look at me like love. And like a break from war,  I accept you with open arms  Just gladContinue reading “I wanted coffee…”

Throwback 

    I came across this piece just now and I was completely unaware that I wrote it, until I was half way through.  In those seconds, it dawned on me how unbelievablely easy it was for me to write about topics I had absolutely no idea of. Now, that I’m learning to be aware ofContinue reading “Throwback “

I don’t do intimacy with strangers 

And although they don’t know the depths of my soul  Parts of them wonder about me when they’re alone Lip locking with my chakras  Because their “hellos” don’t sound like echoes  There’s more behind it It’s not emptiness built on nothings. And although I may not want anything  to do with the person Parts ofContinue reading “I don’t do intimacy with strangers “

Between Nothing

This title carries so many uncertainties I no longer want to keep Distributing my loneliness in every man I seek It’s hard for me to admit to myself And it’s not because I thought he was the one I just chose him over many ones And I assumed he’d do the same I’m very certainContinue reading “Between Nothing”

Do you put a time limit on sex?

Just based off meeting a guy for the first time, there is a physical attraction that is sparked. That happens way before you know his name, find out his age, and get a sneak peek of his personality. Your eyes focus on what you see in this man: the tattoos drawn on his arms, theContinue reading “Do you put a time limit on sex?”

For Sale

I consciously placed a sale tag on a non-discountable good. The one timeless peice, People would merely walk in and admire, Was on sale. Aware, But based on pure frustration,  I wanted it to go. Those who walked in To purely admire it, Were in disbelief Those who had never seen it before, knew itContinue reading “For Sale”

Stranger

I don’t know why I’m writing this, But it kinda feels good… I know you’re somewhere out there  Probably reading this… I’m assuming you’re a Stranger  Who probably knows nothing about me Because for long, those closest to me didnt even know I write poetry.  So any judgments you make of me Will be basedContinue reading “Stranger”

Sober

Soon as the liquor dissolves on my tongue, I am unable to control myself. I only want you. Like you are the only thing buried at the bottom of a bottle. I’m too far from sober to want you in any other way. In the sea of alcohol, It is only you that I remember clearly.Continue reading “Sober”

Forever 21

I recently asked if I was somewhat weird or awkward for being 21 and still ( forever single), and I got the most surprising response which actually warmed my heart. I’d like to share it: ” Nothing wrong with you.  If anything you are being more careful than most who would rush into a relationship. Continue reading “Forever 21”

“I have grown to understand that I’m difficult to love, not because I’m broken, but  because I’m whole. I don’t give guys the luxury of loving me in parts. I love all of me whole heartedly, so it becomes difficult for a guy to squeeze through my insecurities to fill a void he might thinkContinue reading

Crutch

I loved you, when you were most broken. Prayed every night, that you would be healed as sunrise awakens, But every day, you would awaken, With more and more breathes taken. I see how pain radiates through your smile. Knowing that your feet won’t walk a mile, without a crutch. Eyes oblivious, to what wasContinue reading “Crutch”
