what a beautiful sight
how the sun dances on its tips
before it calls in for the night
how they shine for the moon
but the moon longs the sun
who’ll see from a distance soon
we all form constellations
to in some way appeal
to the hearts of our loved ones
who fill us with zeal
its not always possible
to get what you want
rejection can be subtle
but it also can be blunt
take the moon for example
it talks to the stars
but the sun stings it’s admirers
leaving them with burnt scars
we’ve played both the roles before
the moon and the sun
but it’s never fun
when you’re stung by that someone
when life gives you lemons
what are you to do?
when you find out, please tell me
i for one never knew.

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,
