Lying amongst the thorns
A shatteted soul cries out weary
The sins of the father now burned and buried.
Lost moments of doubt turned to ash.
Freedom had found its way home.

I have no desire
To be among the stars,
But for you I would sail
The expanses of space,
Simply to be the moon
That eclipses you.

    the skin today

"Jekyl & Hyde"

There are two sides to everyone
I never meant to be a jerk
I really want to find "the one"
But it never seems to work

Selfish pride and foolish anger
Filled with love but stained in sin
The ebbs and flow inside my head
I push you away then pull you in

Part of me wants tradition
A loving wife and tender children
Part of me wants isolation
Alone forever my destination

There's a sadness in my madness
I can't help but break nice things
Give me a prize that I'm after
And I despise the joy it brings

I can't explain the dichotomy
My two sides are an enigma
So I'll lock my heart away
And I'll just live with the stigma

Dr Jekyl seeking love
Willing to set aside my pride
Only to e...

Your failures, your heartaches aren’t the things you should be ashamed of. Your imperfections, your flaws are those what make you stand out and exceptional from others. Just be you, all that you are. All that you’re meant to be. Own it and keep shining.

Let me preface this by saying that this is not a poem. These are just thoughts that have been on my mind because of recent events. That being said, here goes. I read a book over the summer called Why Bad Things Happen to Good People by Harold Kushner. It changed the way I viewed my faith, the way I view suffering, the way I pray, the way I view my past. It changed me. It changed everything. I keep seeing articles and posts everywhere about all these natural disasters being God's way of punishing us. It paints the picture of a vindictive and petty God. Who wants to worship a God like that? I know I don't. There was a time in my life when I was so angry at God. I was brought up to believe that ...

writing love letters
short or long
saying what you admire about
adore
and are grateful for
and within your love's existence
like how listening to you talk
hearing you breathe
just gives me an added  happiness
and wanting to see your face
even though
all i have to do
is close my eyes
to feel you here
no matter how far
you are
a simple thought
within a day's chaos
that makes you smile
and blush like an idiot
yet some will say
this is cheesy
but haven't you earned
this happiness
to let your love flow
and grow
just look at how it makes you glow

Dear Diary

You are my most special friend. I started talking to quite young and we have been friends ever since. What have you not seen with me. You have always been by my side. You were a friend when I needed one. You were there to listen to me, in my every heart break or every new crush. You were the first one to know.

Dear diary,

You became indispensable. With the passage of time you became so important to me that I never realized how far we have come along. You were always a part of my routine. My day never ended without talking to you.

Dear diary,

How did the time fly with you. It’s like I grew up with you. You never judged me neither when I hated someone nor on my wrong choices. ...

I am so angry, I don't know where to start. We live in Western Europe yet because mij children are immigrants (more so my oudest). The abysmal reaction this parent receives is one of what your problem or the big deal.

The big deal here is the immigrants cannot screw up; which I agree with. There are a ton of witnesses back up his story of protecting a young Mongolian woman from her harrassing.

When is it ok to beat or abuse! When those are completely different from you. Let's beat and destroy those who choose to protect a who cannot react. The laws are strict for us who immigrate and follow the law. Beat down

Dear betrayer,
I am struggling. I got so recklessly lost in you that I forgot the way back to the world. The world, where reality exists. You transported me to the parallel universe, where lips were sealed and heart was chained to yours. Now when the ache comes, I feed it with broken flowers, half poetry and full scars. You moulded yourself in my bone, like salt to sea. Every night, the sky of love looks at me and showers stars in pity. How do I ask for you, when my lips are scared to form your name and mind too brittle to form your image. You are my unformed image and the name not take n. But every reason for my misery. I want to feel that love again, but oh, not that hurt.

Protax was for the awakened
So the sleepers could feel at ease.
To control the little outbursts
And the heart beat pulses

The cars filled under windows
The lawns religiously cut
Campers out
Food stocked up
And no one said
Look out

The birds tweeted caution
The weather gave many clues
The zombies were left in the city
And the elderly not amused.
Those who tried to run, torched
And those who stayed swum
Until the end of times
The beggining that was won.

Years have traveled between us. I've lost what came between and what's happened in our lives since then.. This life I've lived apart from you; I cannot recall. Mayhap, courage is what I've lacked in the past and now my voice springs forth like a river flowing downward. I call forth honesty between us. I call forth our history to be defined. I've forgotten your thoughts but not your face. When we talk, it's in the distance yet close enough to hear the unspoken words. Clarity comes to me daily. Although I'm struggling to understand this love; I can live with letting us blow slowly in the wind. I'll never forget your name. The tender hints in your voice.

Time or money
Which one, to you, is like honey?
Is it time, which we hardly have enough of?
Or is it money that never stays in our pocket and flies away like a dove?

Although money has more of a pull then a clock tick-tocking
We still want both so our rocking chair can continue rocking
Our life can continue on with money in our hands
But it can also be used for evil, so only do as God commands

Money can call our names in the middle of the night
But time can fill us with fright
Although one is invisible and the other is not
It's better to be on the safe side and let money rot

Time is more important than money ever will be
Even though, time, we can never actually see
Yes, it can fill us frig...

When asked about
The meaning of life
My mind flashes
With continuous illustrations
Mayfly finding its mate
Sea turtles first taste of ocean
A mother holding her baby
Funerals
Weddings
Dying stars
The first glimpse
Of the universe
The sun
A man taking his last breath
Myself
In the reflection of a mountain
I do not have an answer
I'd like to say
The meaning
Is unique to us all
But I'm still searching
For mine

THE DARK OF THE NIGHT

Lying awake at two in the morning
Unable to sleep
Even thinking about death
Doesn't do the trick.
Not being afraid
Of the endless dark
Beyond the edge of forever
No longer seems enough.
A universe made of electric charges
Quarks and empty space
Seems a stage that trivialises
The mere spark of a moment
That is this life, these dreams, this face.
Hold out your hand, touch me, do -
At this moment I need a moment with you.

Lonely stranger by the door,
What makes you stop by my house?
Are you looking for a place to stay,
Do you just happen to be wandering about!

Please come in,
Help yourself inside!
I'll fetch you a room,
For its a long, cold night!

And excuse the mess,
I wasn't expecting company.
I'm here by myself,
This house is used to slovenly.

Be careful when you walk around,
Everything here is fragile.
Do not open any locked doors,
They have been closed for a while.

My fireplace is small,
But it shall keep you warm.
Tell me if you need a drink,
A chair, or a comforting arm?

And when you're ready to leave, tell me!
For I will see you off the front door!
Don't just sneak out in the middle of the night,

Love; the most painful, but yet, the most sensational feeling one can experience during their lifetime. We spend our entire lives trying to find it. Once we think we have found it, we are shot through our chest as though by a bullet and the love we thought we had is taken from us. The cycle then continues once again; love is believed to have been found and then our hearts are ripped from our chest. The cycle will forever continue until we find the one who has the correct amount of stitches required to restore our hearts. Then, and only then, are we able to love the right person with our whole heart.

If I’d done one little thing differently and we never met, I wonder how different things would be.

There is no place for jealousy in love
And
There is no part of it in a relationship.

Jealousy may at times give us the illusion of love but it's the one thing that kills love in the first place. The whole process of the jealousy cycle can be described as - Initially, you feel a bit jealous of your person speaking to someone else. And then slowly it increases every time you see them together. Then you wish they both won't talk or communicate or meet each other. The feeling so strong in you. Next, comes the cloud of doubts wherein you want your man/lady to explain the whole meet and the reasons and all and still you are not satisfied with their reply. Next, you force them to not meet by eithe...

I understand that there are fears
leaving you all scared, in tears,
that struggles are eating up your insides,
leaving you wide awake at midnight
I know that you are afraid
of being unwanted or being too late,
of becoming lost in the self-doubt
while others got their lives all planned out
but remember that beauty lies
in the unknown and up in the skies,
that coincidence is a source of liberty
and your freedom worth an infinity.

Escribir no debería ser un sacrificio, no debería ser un carcomer la mente, no debería ser perfección.

Uno no debería escribir para que alguien lo lea, uno no debería escribir para practicar.
Deberíamos escribir para despejar la mente y desahogar el alma, y escribir debería significar sentimiento, carácter y emoción.
No solo yo, pero yo sobretodo, he perdido el norte y la noción del tiempo. He creído en que la escritura debe ser perfecta, he dejado de escribir por falta de "inspiración".

Escribir no debería ser un sacrificio.

your name
on the brittle wind,

did you hear me?

I fell in love with the air for once, the same air that suffocated me, the same air I choked on at times.
And in the instant I realised I'd fallen in love with it, a bird too beatific from across the splendiferous horizon, from the expanses of the aesthetically pleasing skies and from the clouds that were painted in all the colors from the infinite spectrum, the clouds that rained emotions and thoughts; it came flying with letter glued to it's claws ferociously.
A letter that read:
"Been waiting for you since the day we united. And now that you're here, let me confess it to you. I love you from this hollowness in which your heartbeats resonate and talk to me."
The sender was someone I recog...

#PeaceDay

If each one of us take small amount of time to have a frank and honest conversation with ourselves, All of our tendency and impulses will emerge into something meaningful.

Because when we face ourselves, There can't be any filters and layers which can divert our thought process towards victimhood. We must have to accept who we are and what we did. There can't be any doors of escapism.

Almost every time in crisis situations, we find escape mechanism instead of coping mechanism. Its not our faults at all, the world is full of victims. So we will always been appreciated for playing at victimhood and always face resistance when we play leader role for coping mechanism.

But...

There always a someone
Who is watching

There always a someone

Their indirect criticisms
sting me like a serpent but
inspite of that I subconsciously
has fallen in it.
They love me passionately but
not in the way which I want,
They belong to my semblance
but I don't belong to them.
I always shut my tongue btw
my jaws ,though  my passive voice
always poke me to burst out
entirely.

        The remembrance........
           

A letter to remember is what I wish...
But have my voice ever reached to you?
A shard of steel is stuck on my skin,
Pain pulsating again and again,

You were a stab in my chest to begin with
Sinking deeper as the sands flooded

I saw you as one to keep the wound from bleeding.....
And although it reeked of my blood, and flesh
your sinking is what saved Me..........

Ever since my first day at school, she's always been with me, through thick and thin. Even though after grade 3 we were shuffled to different sections, she still remained my friend. Friends forever forget me never!

We always played together during the recess. If one of us took off from school, the other would do the same. We were little kids when we became friends.

At the age of 13, when we were in grade 8, we found new friends.  Eventually a distance had developed and we were no longer friends, forget about forever. We were strangers now. Just strangers. If we ever bumped into one another accidently, we only smiled.

As year past by, things were the same. Strange.

Finally, at y...

Beauty is in the broken
Beauty is in the illuminated truth that sets us free
Beauty is in the eye of those who choose to see
Beauty is in the heartbreaking cry of he- who has just learned humility
Beauty is in the sun and moon giving way for each other,amicably
Beauty is God's breath of life into a new baby
Beauty is in the intent of a soul offering his love down on one knee
Beauty is to reach with both arms whole hearted, because you believe
Beauty is in the open heart exposing his vulnerability
Beauty is in the differences that make you -you and me -me

What does it mean when it's more comfortable to think of yourself as a failure rather than to convince yourself that you are a success? Please don't feel obligated to answer.  I just needed to get this question out of my head in the hopes of finding my own answer.

My dear, how do you sleep after the things that you've seen?
How do you rest, knowing they've all walked away
With pieces of your heart, like pennies in their pockets.
How do you smile, with your soul torn apart to shreds
And barely held together with duct tape or less
How do you dance when future might hold grief
When you've lost friends to nature and some to friendship itself
And how do you love, when you know it fades away
Like leaf after leaf, on a chilly autumn night, and the tree will be barren
So how do you sleep, tonight my dear
Knowing what monstrosities befall others, might befall you someday too

- Czarine

   LONG LOST LOVE...

Got a heart filled with love,
But no emotions to show..

Maybe fear losing you,
Or the answer would be "no"..

Words flyby but nailed to the tongue,
Eventually writing poems that stay unsung..

Today I leave my internship at lettrs and pack up my apartment. I’ll be gone tomorrow morning. Weird. 

There is a newness, a curiosity, about something when leaving it. I wonder why I thought about some places and experiences the way I did at the time. More than anything, though, I feel fulfilled & enriched after this summer in the city. It provoked all kinds of curiosities. 

So, goodbye, everyone! Ya’ll are so kind & it’s been real. I’ll be back. 

xoxo,
