When we’re present, but we’re not on the same wavelength. Our minds often travel to distant galaxies.
Love doesn’t have to hurt if you treat it right.
‘home body’ rupi kaur
this emptiness within, shrinking me into myself.
What’s weighing on your heart also keeps your feet shackled. Let it go … Let them go… you’ll feel much better. Move on!
What if this isn’t just a phase?
the sun is shining again
altough it’s light isn’t golden anymore
the sun is robbing me of my inspiration
what was once my muse is now the suns fuel
I can see, I can smell again
thanks to the sun
but I can feel myself less
thanks to the sun
I was my own muse and now I am feeding myself to the sun
just to feel warm again
I feel warm again, inside the suns belly.
The smell of sex lingers in our “ good morning .”
You feel your existence when your silhouette appears in the eyes of the other. Don’t you feel lost if no one offers you a look? It is your existence that you wish to prove. So what happens to you who are confined alone, locked between four walls?
You wonder about your existence.
the taste of chlorine & washed out gin
paints no finer taste or better flavour
than such beautifully bittersweet bliss
& yet savours agonized delight only so soon .
i miss the colours of sweat
melted over chimney tops
& bleeding on old roof shingles
when glass glows bright under the stars
or when we had only but the world to roam .
there are dreamers who never turn back
or find a single, most forward path ;
that isn’t our life’s only available option
because once we find our way home
there is no going back to who we were .
i recall the bridge of memories i found
where love was shared & everyone rejoiced
mistakes burnt over peace pipes & wine bottles
yet the fantasy of living died the very next day .
we were those pioneers of opportunity
to venture ourselves lost in the leaves
but somehow emerge with triumph with sticks
& hum songs of birds without a worry again ;
no we didn’t find any proper destination
but rather ourselves in a world anew .
“small steps from teensy toes”
Darling! The moon Also return sun,
“It’s light every night for the early Dawn” and you muse these blurry Dark times will never Pass,you’ll never see the Shining stars.
If the sky was ours for today,
Would you after this prolonged silence, knock up at my door
And ask me to bring the treasured pieces of chalk that we once used to hold?
Would you draw the birds a wonderland to chirp their songs in,
Or would you paint us a maze to let ourselves get lost in?
We could go high up and fly with the eagles or fall like the rain
And the height or the fall won’t scare me for your hand and the sky will be mine for the day:
Stargazing on top of the roof we could cherish the young times
And for a moment my mind won’t linger to the thought that ‘were you ever mine?’
I’d be listening you sing and talk the whole night long
And even when we turn into strangers again I would feel no awe.
Because though there will always be the what if’s and the mights:
But the day will keep on reminding me that we can always be one whole again when the time is right ❤️
I thought of myself as a fragile rose
Holding onto its last
And beautiful parts
I held those parts
Firmly, with a tight grip
Hiding them away
From this world
For I knew
It would one day
Take them away
Without my consent
As I grew up
My heart was left
But a empty space,
The softest of parts
Were taken away
As if they never belonged to me
In the first place
So one fine morning
I decided to be something
Which the world wouldn’t want,
I started collecting,
Decorating my skin
With wild flowers
The world wouldn’t
Dare to take them away
For it only cares about beauty
No matter what
Is it’s size or shape
I covered my body with thorns
And I drowned myself in pain
Expecting that the world
Wouldn’t want me
Since I am composed
Of everything but pretty
Or soft or tender things.
The saddest part
Wasn’t that I was right,
It was when I realised
I could never become
Which I once was
Until you (the world)
Left me to die.
Just hold me. We don’t even have to say a word.My heartbeat on your chest will tell you everything.
I just saw the quote, “I must love you because I mention you all the time”, and I have been inconsolable ever since.
