I have no desire to gain altitude,
just to escape my current atmosphere.
My body has grown used to the air,
the way it floods my lungs and allows me to breathe freely.
I do not care for space
or do I spend my time worshipping the sun.
I dare say that the sun is envious of us all
– it knows the real stars are present here on earth,
and even though we are grounded,
we still manage to shine brighter.

You can’t lose something
that wasn’t yours to begin with,
in the same way that there is no point searching the sky
for stars after the sun has risen
– you won’t find what you are looking for.

You should never fear the unknown,
even strangers often end up becoming the best of friends.

If anyone ever asked,
I wouldn’t know where to begin
when it comes to explaining us.
We never really had a proper beginning,
we were two lost souls
who found each other at the right time,
somewhere in the middle.
We have spent so long treading water,
playing catch up,
that my head and my heart are exhausted from the confusion.
However, if I know one thing to be true,
although we don’t have a beginning,
we will never have an end
– an end is final
and there is nothing final about us,
there never will be.

Oh how you make my heart race,
it’s as though I am slow dancing
with you in my arms,
to a song that never ends.

Softly, into the night we go,
every footstep stolen,
without trace.
Empty are the days that lay ahead
and yet they carry such a heavy weight.

I will not burn,
I will learn from my mistakes,
I might be a river of tears,
but all rivers eventually flow to the sea
- you.

‘goodbye’

If there was a romance novel based on your life, what would it be called?

Today is the day that your eyes will be opened
to a new way of living, however,
your approach must be completely different.
You can’t walk a new path in old shoes
– your feet will remain as comfortable as they once did,
the tread will be just as worn,
and you will end up slipping into old habits
and it is the old habits that are sometimes the hardest to shake.
Buy new shoes,
pricey ones,
with good soles
– you have a lot of walking ahead of you,
especially if you are looking to distance yourself
from the all-seeing eyes that only see what they want to see.
You don’t need them, in fact, you don’t need anyone
– you are stronger than you realise.
I know it might see...

It won’t be until you are truly lost,
that you will awake to the realisation
that you don’t need to be found
in order to survive.                  
The moment you realise your self-worth
will be the difference between
allowing things into your life that heal
instead of the toxic things
that will forever hinder
your personal growth.

I drank your darkness
like a thirsty soul,
looking for love in all the wrong places.
I mistook your varied shades of grey
for beautiful colours
and I painted them proudly on my banner of hope,
only to realise that I wasn’t part of the parade,
accompanied by a marching band,
celebrating life.
As my hunger for you lessened,
I found myself belonging to a different kind of procession,
a funeral procession
– mine.

‘When you let the darkness in,
you end up becoming dark too.’

Any book suggestions which would raise self esteem and make me feel good about myself?

In a moment of clarity,
she found herself belonging
to the words of a song,
one that had always been written for her.
She had somehow allowed herself
to be convinced by the world,
that the lyrics had no purpose or value
and yet as she heard every uplifting verse,
she regained what she had once lost,
her rhythm,
her music,
herself.

An excerpt from the book i am writing:

I know that I exist, I am present. And my words that you are reading are evidence enough for my existence. I don't want to believe that my life is an illusion, though I am captivated by those who do. However, my soul feels uneasy every time I unlearn what I can see. I do not believe that I am asleep, I do not believe that everything that supposedly exists around me is just a part of my imagination. But I do not know.

To find the truth I must unlearn everything that I have felt and seen. But I am young, and now is not the time. I do not have the experience nor wisdom to find the truth. Essentially, I have no interest in finding the truth to my existence...

I awoke
wearing a love for you,
that existed
beneath
all the layers
of my clothes.

#Skylark challenge 176

As I began walking
Through the green fields -
Peaceful and calm,
I never guessed once
That it would be
The path to my destruction.
I never once thought
My once blank heart
Would become a canvas
Of your cruelty,
A book of fear and sorrow -
Each page bleeding
From the scars you inflicted.
As I now listen
Into the silence of the night
I am reminded
Of my mute and dumb heart
That once used to sing of our love.
And as I look at the tough bark
Of the mighty trees
That covers the soft wood beneath,
I am reminded of
The facade I now put up
To cover my fragile, shattered soul.

Do not underestimate the level of power that I possess.
I will not fall in the way you expect me to,
I will not conform just to suit your ever-changing needs,
my legs will not buckle under your pressure as though weak.
When we collide,
which of course we will,
the heavy weight that you constantly placed upon my shoulders
will become the counterbalance
that will keep my spine rooted to the earth
so that I remain nourished.
It will allow me to stand tall,
it will support me as I grow in confidence.
You will see me flourish before your eyes,
it will become a constant reminder of what you lost.
I will breathe you in,
consuming all the air that surrounds me
so that wh...

Skylarkchallenge 176(3)
Upon the green plants
When golden rays spread
A tickling feeling comes to mind.
Being alone in the lonely path
Just no more bark or talk
As no one to listen or say
Yet I note everything in the book
Let someone someday read.

Although we dance,
I barely move.
I find myself captivated
by your ‘music’,
filled with so much passion,
I fear I will never get to use.
