  • “Grief”

    So I am currently reading a book titled “Why has nobody told me this before? by Dr. Julie Smith. And today’s chapter was about grief.

  • “The Gate”

    I was thinking of the Book, “Mexican Gothic” by Silivia Moreno-Garcia while writing this one. It is such an amazingly atmospheric book. I thoroughly loved reading that one. A ghost Pretending to be alive Haunted roads covered in fallen corpses Hollow winds engulfing the footsteps Hissssssssssss Don’t turn around Keep walking The whispers will cease […]

  • “What is love?”

    “What is love, mom?” I hug you tight planting a kiss On your sweaty little head, “you are love, my sweetheart!” “Define love.” You change your words Challenging me to evolve. And so, I do.

  • “No more”

    Pride interests me no more I reexamined my ego Into Self-Respect Hope, stagnates me no more I morphed my desires Into actions. Love drowns me no more I accepted its existence Entwined into my own. Pain holds me back no more I accepted the scars As a part of my growth. Waiting scares me no […]
