Humans were made for love; it consumes us. It drives us, motivates us, dictates us, manipulates us. It is the synonym for gravitational pull — it pulls us without our control. Love is a craving so strong we cannot live without satisfying; we need it. It is in our nature to believe there is someone out there who is made for us, who has prayed for us, who will stay for us. Someone we are desperate to find, and we will find them, someday, one way or another; we will find them. We will search in every nook, cranny, crease; we will unconsciously make eye contact with every being we come in proximity with in every place that we go. We will be searching, desperately, for the person we call home. We want to come home. Home is the place where body and arms meet, where skin meets skin and fingers intertwine. It is warm and embracing; a sacred place where two souls can collide forever. Such unity we seek, such romance. The length we will go to find our perfect match stretches far outside the natural boundaries of meeting. We participate in speed-dating, dating apps, social media; we go to bars and hold “singles only” parties; we volunteer for blind dates and set ups; anything and everything as a means to find, “You.” A euphoric word used to describe a euphoric person. You. The synonym for love and the center of our universe.

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, B.K. Laurel View all posts by B.K Laurel
