Don’t wait too long.
I always knew this train would be late.
In a dream,
I waited in mud.
Wasted, waste
Deep,
I led myself to the fire.
I abandoned myself at the station.

The silvery moonlight
Calls to the shore
Teasing it to come
And read what it wrote
It writes stories with its glittering ink
That flows with the water below
Stories of lovers
Who loved too much
And promised a lifetime
Only to drift apart
Because time wasn’t on their side
Like the sea drifts away from the shore

Sometimes I feel I come from another time
Because my soul is too old for this new world
I come from a world
Where there are no walls or boundaries
Where colour is a word
Used to describe flowers not skin
Where hearts are full
And thoughts are deep
Where the spirit is free
And flows like poetry  
I come from a world
Where you can feel every feeling
Deep in your bones
Where dreamy romances still exist
And everyone is fluent in chivalry   
Where being kind isn’t a virtue
It is just the way to be
I come from a world
Where intuition speaks loudly
And voices speak softly
Where eyes talk without words  
And silence is a language
Where music can be heard everywhere and in everything
Someti...

Es muy deprimente cuando le cuentas a una persona tu sentir, pero no le importa.
No le importa que estés triste.
No le importa que necesites compañía
No le importa que necesitas ayuda.
Simplemente se aleja y destrosa tu esperanza por buscar confort en personas que amas.

Sometimes it takes traveling thousands of miles away from home to embrace the truth. The truth of you finding solace and comfort in the thought that this time around, at the price of some emotional discomfort, you found a way to gracefully exit a situation that didn't help you grow. That even though you can see the good in people, you can also recognize a very familiar pattern and Red flags that present themselves in new situations with new faces.
There's nothing wrong with not conforming to breadcrumbs of effort and attention. To holding on to your dreams and aspirations. You know what you have to offer and there is nothing wrong with holding back and not expressing that until what you give...

Mae, quiero que en mi vea el consejo de lo que soy su amigo, hermano.

El abuso en parejas no solo se da de hombre a mujer, se recibe también de mujer a hombre, y no no es justo ni sano, ese mundo que estás viviendo.

El amor no te hace solo dar, ni ser un patrocinador, ni estar disponible siempre para ella por encima de su familia, ni subestimar lo nuestro por lo de ella, no es que te haga ridículos de enojos frente a los tuyos, ni que siendo novios ella maneje tus ahorros y planes. No mae!.

El amor bien es cierto es dar, y darlo todo de nuestra parte para hacerla feliz, que se sienta como lo que es la princesa de nuestra vida, pero es mutuo es vivir una relación donde ella se también grac...

Meu amigo,

Estou quase a fazer anos. Está quase a fazer um ano desde que me tornei "adulta". Oficialmente, pelo menos. Era um ano em que era suposto terem acontecido coisas incríveis, um ano em que a minha vida deveria ter andado para a frente, um ano que devia ter valido a pena. Mas olho para trás agora e vejo que talvez nem um quarto tenha valido a pena.

Continuo a achar que a minha vida está parada à beira da estrada, no meio do nada, sem possibilidade de andar para a frente. Estou perdida, quero respostas e só tenho perguntas. Não sei o que quero fazer no futuro e isso está a deixar-me assustada e desesperada ao mesmo tempo.

Toda a gente parece estar a conseguir fazer, viver aq...

Words to be used:
* DESTINATION 
* JOURNEY 
* DREAMS
* NEGATIVE

SYNAPTIC TRANSMISSION

A JOURNEY from neuron to neuron,
Communication at it's most complex,
NEGATIVE and positive,
Source to DESTINATION,
With the ability to build DREAMS,
And knock down walls.

I am not going to justify myself to a world that only sees me when it decides I`m worthy and no longer invisible.
I don’t need to be ‘seen’, my life so far has been a tremendous achievement, my only regrets are that it took me far too long to realise that museums and galleries aren’t the only places where art lives
– it lives in me too,
I am art.
I know I may not appeal to everyone; however, I have learnt, that the only person I need to please is me.
The world is full of critics and I will always be my worst critic and often judge myself harshly, but I know me best, I know the struggle I’ve been through. What I won’t accept are strangers with opinions based on the cover a...

We all want the happiness.

I’m starting to realize it’s not about happiness. To find Happiness was something I created on my own without any research to back it up.  I was always wishing I had it when in fact it was deeper than that. I always thought me being detached from people and life was a terrible concept. But it isn’t. As much time as I put into finding myself, I found I am where I should be. I don’t want to apply the rules from this society I live in today to myself. The rules don’t apply to me. I’m in a place where the earth meets the sky. Not many people can still dream when they are brain washed to think following the rules of society will get you to where you “think” you should ...

The rain hid her tears as she stood there, waiting for the last train home. When suddenly someone walked up to her.
It was the love of her life. His arms wrapped her once more. One last time. His huge hands, always warm, dried her cheeks. He had waited for the rain to start down to hide the sound of his voice. He couldn't bear to see her like that. He approached her with determination and touched her lips, a very cold lips. But she had remained motionless, unable to offer any sign. Their eyes crossed and they faced each other face to face, doing nothing, just looking into each other's eyes, like someone facing someone who wants intensely but knows that it is not the place or the moment at thi...

Dear letterists,

What would you prefer. Being in love with someone for the rest of your life who doesn't love you back, or being in a relationship with someone you don't truly love, but are happy with. As they do love you very much.
