They told me distance makes the heart grow fonder but how could a love so strong grow stronger under the circumstances of being away?
I’ve wept for a love that in distance lost its way.
I refused to believe what they told me was true but I was naive to think I’d lose love in you when really it’s just like they said — it grew.
And here I stand, trailing back to you.
Like skyscrapers sprouting from the ground abruptly, these past 6 months without you went roughly, I thought once at first that distance was the killer, but now I’ve realized that our thoughts were the trigger.
We were playing Russian roulette not knowing the loss entity of love was a threat so when the bullet met the outlet, our armor fell and we split apart, but I wouldn’t be interrupted by a broken heart.
So I continued to love and to my surprise so did you and who knew waiting would make reality come through?
Our thoughts betrayed each other — making you go one way while I the other.
But distance brought us back to what we once were which was lovers.

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,
