our sun is another planets’ star
its hard to believe how far other galaxies are
with science we only believe what our eyes can see
and saying there could be life outside the milky way is deceiving me
if you asked me, no i havent done research
i just never thought we were so small
only as small as i’d see up in airplanes
but now that we’re smaller, theres more to be explained
space is a place where traveling takes years
it takes 248.4 to pluto and its weather is fierce
theres so many planets we’ve never stepped foot on
and its because of its contents we weigh the pros and cons
and some we never will, but we’ll never stop learning
our pencils keep writing, the planets keep turning
i read in a book the sun’s dying slowly
its half way burnt out and soon earth too will be lonely
it’ll be rid of its humans
its life given creatures
and no one will be left
to appreciate its features
i just stand incredulous
to believe such an ending
that we’re heading into oblivion
that earths demise is slowly pending
and that in another galaxy
we are nothing of what we think we are
because our one and only sun here
to them is just another star.

As it says in my tagline: I'm just a writer writing about love because that's what all the cool kids are falling into these days. However, the type of love I write about is based more on the likeliness of modern day heartbreak. I originally started this blog as an outlet for therapy. I believe writing soothes the mind and allows us to express our feelings, which is exactly what I do here -- but in the form of poetry and spoken word pieces. I began writing in 2016 and I like to think the content I put out is relatable and hard-hitting since there's nothing new under the sun. You'll come to find I struggle a lot but without struggles, there is no growth, and believe me, I am growing.
Slowly, I am working towards publishing my own works. Gallimaufry (one of the categories here on my blog) is one of them. I'm also in the process of writing, "war & peace", "where two hearts unify as one", & "i sold my heart to buy yours".
Until then, feel free to linger around and read a few of my pieces; if you like what you see, be sure to hit the follow button at the bottom of my page to keep up with my posts and like & comment as you wish!
Other than that, thank you for reading my About Me page!
I'll be seeing you,
