Suitor

Wide awake she lays at night, replaying the day's events, clinging on to the good short moments. They speak of this thing, something that's effortless, something that overwhelms one with bliss, she longs for that thing, See, she hasn't always been one to not believe, just unable to believe that she could phantom a that… Continue reading Suitor

Rollercoaster

Going through the motions, clickers reaching the top, senses heightened then... the disconnect What just happened? A constant thought in her mind See, she's use to this, emotions her theme park, the showstopper - the connection ride Unplugging her best trait, the skill she has mastered over these years. Pretence, her playground, the ability to… Continue reading Rollercoaster

2020.

It's human nature to see people as the sin they committed and overlook the change they underwent. For most, this year was a winter. Our leaves dwindled and exposed our nudity and we saw the veracity of what we are truly made of. The insecurities we buried deep within our subconscious, the loneliness, the need… Continue reading 2020.

Soothing

Sitting on her bed staring at the sky, conjuring up hope to keep it together Sitting on the bed looking up to ABBA, longing for a pat on the back Can you hear me, my deepest thoughts, she wonders, can you tell what's working me up ... The soothing sound of the wind, the gentle… Continue reading Soothing

Limbo

Okay, I'm crying again. Reason? Unknown Stuck in a limbo, I find myself rekindling unrealistic fears that threaten my livelihood. What is happening to me? A question that never ceases to pass my mind. That's the thing about irrational thought; patterns of thinking that are illogical, distort reality and prevent you from reaching your goals, they do just… Continue reading Limbo

Mental Health Awareness

About 400 million people suffer from mental health disorders worldwide, and that's just the recorded cases. 400 million...Some playing the violin with their wrists hoping someone would hear the melody, Some passionately swimming in pools of alcohol trying to drown their pain,Some silently screaming their lungs out hoping that someone would peep through the windows… Continue reading Mental Health Awareness

Triggered

Tempted to say don't do that, yet knowing the intent was pure holds me back, Tempted to say I'm not okay, yet the love to keep one happy and sane disables me from speaking out. Often carefully selecting my choice of words to give a voice to my troubled mind, I remain silent. ... Everything… Continue reading Triggered

Scream

Bottled energy, unable to let it out, He meant well yet I am triggered. Contained emotions eating me up inside, A shared post intended to soothe, I'm triggered. ... See at times all it takes is a reminder that I am not okay Okay I thought I was, until... well until I saw that post.… Continue reading Scream

Longing

Rolling warm water droplets upon thy's face, That's what happens when one forgets to breathe Aching shell, the manifestation of thy's inner turmoils I hate the cold, reminder of one's fragile nature Longing for salvation, the catalyst of hope, Tormented by thy's thoughts, with the hindrance in expression, one silently looks to the sky, As… Continue reading Longing
