i finally understand now, like an ongoing epiphany.
you were just trying to be nice when you said we could still be friends,
but how could we be?
how could we be friendly in a way we’ve never before?
feeling nothing when we spoke or want to be nothing more?
when you said your goodbye, you said it as your last.
you will not keep in touch, to you i’m just your past.
if i knew what i knew now then, when i first saw your face,
our unexpected ending would have never been the case.
i was planning to wait, for you to find your way
but once you said goodbye, you had nothing more to say.
so ill say farewell too, but not in the same manner,
it won’t be my last, i have more in my planner.

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,
