hang up the phone before it gets too heated
before you say something you mean
but weren’t ready to mean it
weren’t ready to make it official
to officialize the thoughts in your head
your head is aching
from words left unsaid
unsaid as in you wanted him to say it
but he didn’t
and no, maybe you don’t want it to end
but your sister’s friend acts more like a boyfriend
while your boyfriend acts more like a friend
you lie awake at night listening to the sound of her laughter
as she plays ukulele and writes love songs
and you remember how that used to be you
why don’t you write anymore?
because he never asks you to play
your fire, it’s dying
and you spent your last match
on a fire that wasn’t yours to spark
you want to tell him you feel defeated
but you hung up the phone before it got too heated
you hung up the phone
and now you’re alone
falling asleep to the sound of your sister’s laughter
on call with the friend she now calls hers

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,
