Make Sure It’s Really Love (Poem #8)

You have always been consumed
by the thought
of having someone to hold
someone to label your own
and to give yourself to

to realize that i am capable too
of being broken Continue reading Make Sure It’s Really Love (Poem #8)

I hope that the next time you’ll talk about love
your eyes will be shining

why is her name
still in your head? Continue reading After Her (Poem #6)

blinded by what society thinks is lovable
everyone unqualified
are mostly left alone Continue reading Today’s Mistake (Poem #3)

You Were the Risk I Wanted (Poem #1)

I could still not say
that we never should’ve started

that i will not regret Continue reading You Were the Risk I Wanted (Poem #1)

Sometimes when i daydream, i end up jotting down phrases. Here are 4 random phrases and poems i have written this April.

nodded, and went on our separate ways
