A friend before all else

Leaving is hard my friend, ‘Cause you know I don’t talk much, but you get me and see how much I feel, although sometimes I restrict myself from expression. Why you wonder– I haven’t attempted explaining it. But as always, you can see through my thin skin and have felt the warmth from within itContinue reading “A friend before all else”

Snow

Memories of snow in the summertime. Days of crying undercovers and hungering for a drop of sunlight. Gray clouds looming over the Midwest and suffocating our souls; causing it to turn gray too. The skin turns into an ash like color, making you forget who you are. Depression is the perfect word to describe theContinue reading “Snow”

Rocking together

Rocking with you to a tune like this and sailing away to some world faraway. Floating in the sky until we’re out in space. Your hands in mine, and mine in yours in still motion with our hearts beating in synchrony while the stars align perfectly, in a horizon somewhere. Tell me love, that weContinue reading “Rocking together”

I find you in the shadows

I find you in the shadows, following me around as if it’s your mission to capture my heart. Shadow souls, thumping beats, colors transmitting through our nerves as if it’s a signal from a universe far off, coming towards me, swirling around me from these shadows, filling my senses with whispers of you, sights ofContinue reading “I find you in the shadows”

Let’s cry together

For being dreamers, and unintentionally hurting the ones who want to possess us as theirs. For understanding the disappointment they go through when they’ve given their everything, yet still we can’t be owned. For the sadness they feel when they think there is something wrong with them because we can’t be owned. And as dreamers,Continue reading “Let’s cry together”

A conversation to remember

Months ago, my always smiling late grandma had said, “Look at you nani, gazing deeply elsewhere. What profound things you must be thinking of.” And in complete honesty, I had explained, “Not really ama, I’m not thinking about anything at all. I’m actually just looking at the wall.”

Just keep swimming

Hot air nags and tugs the burning skin. Just cut through all the nonsense and dive in. Power swim across this deceivingly peaceful shark tank. Plunge away from every little thing. Rinse away the pain and the anxiety. Motor your way through life. Just keep swimming. Swim for survival. Swim to breathe. Swim to finallyContinue reading “Just keep swimming”

Death

There are numerous people who believe that death will end their miseries. Here’s a quote that points out an alternative perspective: “Don’t depend on death to liberate you from your imperfections. You are exactly the same after death as you were before. Nothing changes; you only give up the body. If you are a thief or a liar before death,Continue reading “Death”
