Limbo

Hanging in the balance, seeking an emotion any besides sorrow, Hanging in a limbo, recalling memories that shouldn't have been, Hanging by a thin thread, hope pain love bliss, hanged to the ceiling lifeless, Somethings come easy, a smile a grin, a mere facial muscle spasm, Other things arrive with T's & C's, racing mind… Continue reading Limbo

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

It’s…

Labeled as unconditional, execution guidelines key words "easy, simple" with the fine print "handle with care" Love The fairytale longed by many for a simple touch, a stroke that would last a life time Love "is patient, is kind.

Pretence, her playground, the ability to… Continue reading Rollercoaster

Vie

What does it mean to live? How can we know if we are living or just alive? Questions that often cross my mind: the meaning behind one's existence. Is the act of breathing enough? Do I have to have a reason & motivation behind my actions? Questions that puzzle my mind: will we ever reach… Continue reading Vie

I have heard about You all my life, from my mother's womb, supplications of protection and… Continue reading YAH

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.
