everyday since you left, my mother checked the mail,
and everyday since you left, there was nothing.
i kept track of the days and today marked twenty six,
and to my surprise i got something.
the envelope was small,
and your handwriting was sloppy,
but before i could open it,
a shiver ran through my body.
let me go were your last words.
please, its for the best.
i remember when you said this,
how your face was unexpressed.
i don’t know what you’ve written,
and perhaps i never will.
i left it sealed in its casing,
but yet i love you still.
the letters that i’ve written,
match that of the counted days.
ill stop when i reach a full year,
or sooner if so i say.
we can’t hold on forever,
you for one never did,
but perhaps you’ll read the letters,
i wrote to you as a kid.
the ones i never sent you,
the ones that still i hold.
the ones that ill keep with me,
as i, over time, grow old.

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,
