Be the person you dream of.Fight for what you love & pursue your aims. You might be given the opportunity only once, so take it! SOME DREAMS NEVER DIE

When I first saw you, I did not know what to think.
You stood in front of me, your eyes fixed on mine.
Your smile as captivating as it was promised more than you could offer.
You were a fallacy. A deceiving demon.
So eager was I to revenge my lover that I let you manipulate me.
It was all a mistake.
Fear is my best friend. Love is my enemy.
Your apologies I can accept. But your love I avoid.
I've been hurt.
I've been in love.
I could give you a second chance but I dread the fall.
I loved the person that stabbed me with no restraints.
I hated the one whose eyes showed lust and admiration.
Honest I thought you were not.
But your eyes were mirrors of your soul.
I fear your mind an...

Mistakes.

We all make them. We all pay for our wrongs. My mistake was that I did not knew I loved him. Love needs time to grow and become certain and independent. He was hasty and sure of his doing but I was hesitant and did not knew what I was feeling. I could go down the road with him but I couldn't tell what I was feeling. Then I put distance between us. He kept wanting to see me but I feared that he did not love me, that to him I was just a toy to pass time. He was persistent but eventually he got angry with me and just left. A month later he got back with his ex and that was when my heart went to pieces. I knew by then that I did love him but I thought that he felt the same and was jus...

«Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

 

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

 

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

 

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

All I feel for you is hatred!

For you were the one for whom I abandoned everything and turned my life upside down.

I still don't know what it was that made me act before thinking.

I surrendered myself to my desires and allowed you to guide me.

Little did I know that I was just fooling myself into thinking you could be different than any other.

Months later you keep barging in my door but I'm not sure if you deserve to be accepted in.

I don't know whether you're here for me or your loneliness and vengeful nature brought you in front of me again.

This time I am going to demand the truth. At least you owe me that much.....

What a strange thing life is!

Sometimes we struggle, we hurt inside and let ourselves fall even deeper into grief and sadness because of the things that we want or our resolution to change some situations.

Then, there comes a day when we've hurt so much that we decide to let go of things and go further on with our lives. And that is when the things that you gave up on knock your door.

By opening the door you just realise that you do not need those things any longer. They have nothing more to offer you. In trying to achieve your aims you went through a path and when you got out of it you just got wiser and gained new experiences. That is exactly why now you do not need what you needed in ...

Trouble in paradise

We meet each other every day, we walk the one by each other,we exchange stolen glances, sometimes we even accidentally pump into each other.

Our clothes and skin conceal our inner emptiness. We find contentment in things that satisfy our superficial needs in such an extent that we ignore the needs of our souls.

We pretend to be happy, satisfied, foul of joy when we lack the very things that can provide us  these.

We take a mere touch of our hand and call it love. Love is not superficial. Love goes through the clothes, the body, the feeling of touch. Love is not the feeling of wholeness but what makes us feel so empty that we no longer have the need to fill anythin...

CHOICES

Every so often we find ourselves stumbling in a new opportunity, a new start.
Whether we like it or not, this opportunity was found on our path and so we are obliged to go through it, to live, struggle and work hard on it.
It is the only way to move on to our path. It's like going through little tests of our powers, prowess and limits.
Each time a task is completed we will feel all the more powerful, confident and proud. As one task will success another we will get all the more experienced and wiser.

Because that's what life is; a road trip, a roller coaster on which ride there are some traps and obstacles which can be turned into great opportunities and lead us to success.

Nowadays technology has developed in so many ways. Not only has it changed our wold but the way we perceive the world as well.

Technology has brought a thousands conveniences in our sort-lived lives equally good and bad.

It's ironic isn't it ?
We inhabit such a beautiful world yet we forget to spare a moment to appreciate the miracle of life. Time is too important, money is too damn essential. We've become shadows of our own lives. We don't live, we're incessantly chasing machines and a fast paced lifestyle that barely do we catch up with. Time is not enough, days aren't enough. Though, what I most fear is that one day that our cars won't run fast enough, we won't be able run as fast and that will be when we'll realise that we spent our lives, our most precious moments worrying, buried in anxiety, constantly running when we could just learn how to swim and balance our priorities........

Months have passed from the last time I ever laid eyes on him for the last time. Thinking of him has become a casualty now,a permanent part of who I am, something that hardly can I shake off me.

I miss him.
However many times I refused it, however many times I tried to convince myself that I felt nothing, I was never able to trick myself. I feel everything and even if I would love to lie and say that it was all just an infatuation that did not last, I am afraid that I no longer can.
I had seven months to get over and fight those unexplainable things I felt. however, now I realise there is nothing to get over.

Lost without love

Every single day is a day that we become older, every hour we find ourselves knowing more than we did an hour ago. We evolve with the passage of time, we become wiser, cleverer, more compatible. Although this is the natural way things work, sometimes we get a lot more out of places and by doing things that seemed at first dull and pointless.
. I had no intention of meeting anyone or going anywhere that day but the opinions of my friend had a certain effect on me and so I went to meet those people she wanted to introduce me to so much.
However, now I am rather capable to recognise how foolish this decision was. Out of the many people there, two green bright eyes captured ...

Time is lessening
The air around me thin and cold
I helplessly turn around in the hope of seeing a familiar face
But in vain
I feel alone
Alone as I left
I wander around but
Nothing feels like the security your arms offered  
The warmth your touch and eyes gave me

-I miss you -

I've learned to drown your memory in books and berry my thoughts of you for a little while
It does not last permanently

I tried being mad at you
I tried being ignorant
I tried but every time I found myself falling even deeper

I don't know where this will lead me
I do not know what I want
All I know is I need to see you again
I need to hear your voice, feel your touch.....

There will come times when you will think 'why am I even doing this?' and other times when everything will seem pointless.

You will be let down a lot by people who meant everything to you or not.

You will get frustrated because of the things that you aimed to do and someone stood on your way.

I swear each time you will hurt even more but I also promise you that it will get better, you will get better.

All these obstacles will improve your skills and you'll have to become more competitive.

In our every day lives we engage in a variety of occupations most of which are against our preferences. However, there comes a time when we need to find an escape door, this tendency to flee and escape reality, even for a minute, is burning within us.  

Some engage in sports others in music and then there are those who  spend their time cultivating their spirit.

It is no coincidence that ancient Greeks regarded the spiritual occupation as a most imperative prerequisite in a man's life. They used to claim that ''a healthy mind entails to a healthy body''.

This is what lettrs can offer to you. Not only will you get open minded by reading and learning things that other people from all aroun...

To someone that will never read this,

My thoughts of you, they get intertwined with my objections,my aspirations.

I dare to read a book, study, listen to a song or have a conversation and yet somehow like a throwback in time I see your eyes.

The eyes I came to love.
Their burning colours still keeping me warm.
The eyes I tried to forget.
The  damage they did as they touched my heart and soul.

Those two eyes that spoke more than lips ever did.
The eyes I haven't seen in months.

They torture my dreams and reality.

Your eyes, love, I fear will be my undoing.
Etched as they are indelibly on my mind's walls, all I hear and see is their bright summer colours and the laugh of  an e...

Have you ever had the impulsive tendency to flee?
I do....
It just comes naturally from inside me. Whenever I feel like things are getting messy or I get too upset all I want to do is leave. It is not that I cannot cope, it's more like a protection mechanism. I don't want to get hurt and instead of pushing others away I push myself away.  It seems the logical thing to do. No way do I want to inconvenience anyone and so I back off. Believe me I want to stay, to fight. But what would be the point in staying and continuing a doomed flirt?   I really like the guy but I know I cannot have high demands with him. Maybe he is not worth it. However the case I still feel a mess I don't know what I fee...

Dear kind people who spend your time on my troubled words,

I am a 17 year old student and I live in Greece. Yes, you saw right, I wrote GREECE. So,it is the very things that happen in my country the last five years and especially the last  7 days that I will be addressing in this letter. I hope you hear what I have to say with an open mind and heart, for I have no internal motives for doing this than my own soul's pleads for an honest and most amiable  audience.

To begin with, I was literally a child when my country took the turn for the road of austerity. Considering that I was foolish even, one would have thought that all that has happened would have gotten unnoticed  by a kid. Not only ...

Dear great-grandchild,

There are so many things that I would like to say to you. Things, most of which you might not be able to comprehend yet. Supposing that was even  possible, words expressed orally are like mist in an early morning. Some leave a reminder of their existence breafly eatched on our minds whereas others just dissolve like they never existed.
So, I decided to pass on to you some words of my own yet not into an oral form. I'm giving you this diary of mine. I managed to gather all my thoughts,wishes, things that I went through, things that I've been meaning to say to you in just a small notebook. I am aware that it isn't much but I thought that If you go through it you'll get...

Every day we find ouselves in different situations. Every single day we interact with other people and find ouselves into a quite different discussion. A lot must be the times that we think over that discussion we had and wish we could have said things differently. Additionally, sometimes the words slip out of your mouth without even realizing it. Whatever the case, still there are conversations that all of us have regretted even once in our lives.

The discussion that I wish I could have the ability to alter took place at my grandmother's  house approximately four years ago.

In this life we experience everything from loss, pain, let down to excitement, fascination and so on.  

We were so eager to give every sentiment a place in our vocabulary and so we ended up turning every single one of them into words.

Today, however, we've come to calling the name of a particular sentiment without knowing what that means. For instance, love ; we say that we're in love and actually describe this experience as feeling like having butterflies in our stomach or thinking about a particular person all the time.
The thing is that at the end we managed to turn words into sentiments and not the other way round.....

What I'm getting at is that in our eagerness to describe everyth...

A modern love story?

I can't comprehend this. I'm furious with you! What do you want? We've been known each other for a year now and lately I've started having strong feelings for you!  It's the most wonderful, awful, perplexed, disgusting, exhausting, time-wasting thing I've ever felt.
Yet I've tried to tell you, I talked to you, I liked everything you uploaded on Facebook and still you  seem to ignore me. In our conversation you sounded particularly interested in talking to me yet you haven't made a move after that. I was bold with you, the boldest I've ever been! I don't know what's wrong.

I'm so furious with the world. I can't expect from everyone to be the same but I think that people have lost their hope, the strength to have faith, they've abandoned their God.

How does it feel to live in a hopeless world?  We do bad things and bad things happen to us respectively.

Everything is borrowed. Our clothes, money, homes.  One day the only thing that will matter is our actions and what happens then?

Sometimes in our short lives we have to lie or pretend in front of others to be someone we're not! Think of how many times you've done it. The question, though, is;do we really know who we are or are we just living in our own lies?  For example, I love thinking about things and try to see them from another different angle, discover new things, principles and values. However, when I'm around people I can be the dumbest person you've ever known and that's all I've ever been even around my friends. I never talked about my beliefs and dreams to anyone. Partly maybe that's because I know that no one really cares. I'm the person who always listens and people never stop to listen to me. I've come t...

Life

It's late at night
but somehow I cannot sleep
I close my eyes
Here they are
Memories I wanna keep
Their loss means it's time to abandon ship

I'm just a wreak
Hiding treasures in the depths of an endless sea
There where people can't search for gold
It's too deep and too cold

And I close my eyes again
Tighter this time
Letting the sweet orphea lead me right
Because by finishing this chapter of my life
I know as I feel the sun rise
that the greatest things are those felt with the heart
And Not with the eyes....

I know I'm not a poet but I just had this inner crave for creativity and then those words just appeared......

2014

Time passes because that's what time does! Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks,months and years constitute an inseparable part of our lives. What is worth admiring about time is how fast or slow passes and the taste that leaves us with after. Just like this another year of my so far life has come to an end. At the beginning of every single year I set new goals and say to myself 'this year I'll make a new start and it'll be great'. Sometimes it becomes true and sometimes I just lie.
For me 2014 has been the most amazing year of my life! However, that doesn't rule out the fact that it's been a pretty difficult year, as well.

Sometimes while I walk among the crowd I can't help but feel so lonely. I'm alone in a world full of people who wouldn't give a penny whether I am alright or not. In every friendship that I make I see betrayal dishonesty and manipulation. I look around me and feel the hatred and the jealousy of people burning my skin. I watch them talk and all I hear is lies.

What is freedom really? Throughout the years we people as independent beings use to seek freedom like our lives depend on it, and maybe they are. Let's not forget that the greatest wars have started in the name of freedom and independence , thus many people have lost their lives for the freedom of others, for our freedom. So we could say that freedom is closely connected to love. However, I'm inclined to believe that liberty is more than just an idea.

To me freedom could be anything and anywhere. I can see it in the blue of the sky and feel it in the morning breeze as it blows on my face. I'm free to follow suit of others or choose to make a difference and be wh...

All people in this vast and endless world live in different communities. Some of them enjoy living and some detest it . Either way I'm inclined to believe that every society has its assets and drawbacks and so does the community I live in.

Thessaloniki is called by many 'the city of love' and constitutes a must destination for young couples.It is, indeed, a pretty romantic place and especially in the night when all the city lights are lit and you can take a stroll along the harbour or enjoy a drink in the many taverns or restaurants.

Time.

What is that that we call time? To my opinion time is a cheater. It doesn't let us take a moment to appreciate and relish what we have. Time is a thief as with its passage it rips us off of our memories. It's an avenger that lets our most painful and unhappy moments and memories last forever etched in our minds.
Time never give us the opportunity to do exactly what we have in mind. Time has the ability to escape us. Though,the worst part of all is that most of the times we actually allow this to happen. We get tired and sometimes we are in the need of time.

To conclude time either we like it or not has and will always have control over our lives. We may say that we're scared of it and...
