vicissitudes

my eyes aren't used to all this blinding light, my ears refuse all these deafening sounds, my nose rejects all the smokes and dusts in flight, and my heart yearns that place where love abounds. a stranger i am to this place I don't belong! alas! this city isn't what it seems to be: t'is...

0 The Fool

the clouds rolled in and covered my skies, dark they have become like my sun will never rise. the winds were piercing and the rain was cold, all these were brought in by endings unforetold. now the clouds are gone and i can see all the stars against the clear evening skies, glistening like scars...

feels like home

for years and years, i have met muses who sparked the flame of my slumbering poet. they made me paint through my words, dance through my prose, and sing through my poems. i have offered odes to lovers i have lost, i have sung elegies for funerals i have thrown for the pieces of my...

i always had a song for you

I always had a song for you. I never sang them, but they rung in my mind and they echoed in my heart. They told of the words that I couldn't say, the thoughts I was always too scared to share. They painted the picture of stories I couldn't narrate, the emotions I never wanted... Continue Reading →

wanderlust/postcard

i am a traveller, and you are my map. i lay you on the table as my eyes gaze upon the wondrous beauty of your body— every curve, every mark, every spot. the places i have been to i mark with an X using my lips and my tongue. my fingers trace the outline of... Continue Reading →

without me,

without me, the sun will still shine and share its warmth to the world. without me, the moon will still glow and show its beauty, conquering the darkness. without me, the flowers will still bloom and make this world beautiful. without me, the seas will still rush to shore and give comfort to those who...
