I find myself gasping for air over feelings I cannot control.
Tears stream down my face; I wipe them away so they leave no trace,
but I cannot replace my sadness with a smile.
For the pain I feel is just too vile.
We are on opposite ends of the states and cling to two different time zones. I know sticks and stones can break my bones but that’s what casts are for; to fix them.
But what about the pain my heart feels and the people that choose to break it? And what about the pain this distance brings and the unsupported solution to fix it? I’d go to you in the snap of fingers if given the chance; no second glance, but the truth is my mother’s right. I have no business there, but who can compare to you and the love we share? You give life meaning and since distance is intervening, my only desire is to follow you to the ends of the Earth and perhaps I will someday.
I just cannot bear to be so far away.
But you’re too far out of my reach.

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,
