go and grow into the person you know in your heart to be true. love yourself through every line of fault and mistake. you were always more than your broken heart. you were always more than the body you live in.

in the beginning, there was only this.
i’ve come a long way with writing and sharing my feelings. i’m still not perfect. i’m still not where i want to be. i still carry too much and love too little, but i’m still learning. and i promise: for as long as i’m here, i won’t stop and i won’t give up on everything i want for myself and believe myself to be.
thank you for letting me into your world and being a part of this universe with me. 🖤
The world turning
A family a family a fam-
Ily of modeling figurines
I placed gently on the toilet
In our bathroom
Oh, they’ve fallen over
What does pride feel like now
I’m only arrogant now
I keep one stem of every rose bouquet
I also place them in the bathroom
I place dried petals on my tongue
At full moon ceremonies
Tonight it’s pink it’s pink
I’m starting to believe or
If the way I move my fingers
If there is not enough love in the world
If there is too much

I mark time by pink moons
How has one year passed
I used to take pride in big & small
Now I take pride in nothing
I don’t feel proud, and I miss surging
At the sight
Of I don’t know
Oh, I don’t know

Today's prompt was from @tristamateer giving us the first line, "In the dream." I didn't want to go so literal, but I had a lot of time to stare at the trees out the school window this afternoon, and I wanted an escape.
The original quote is ...love gives us a fairytale. But hey, 🍕 IS love. #italylovenotes

Another #throwback for today.
I wrote this when I was 11 years old. Enjoy!
Feel My Pain
Have you ever walked the city streets at night?
To know how it feels
To hear a four year old cry, a girl, without dolls,
Without shoes, without food.
To see another go crazy over her bastard son.
Nobody wants to go through that.
If you walk down fire lit alleys,
Where boxes lie instead of beds,
People discarded like tinder unable to catch
The flame of their dreams
Extinguished with faded hope,
Washed in the cold of concrete nights.
How can the man who sleeps too well,
In greed and ignorance, understand two men fighting
For a five-cent rebate, a dented can of cola
Emptied like their hearts,
Now too able to kill for a chance
To start again.
Nobody wants to imagine that.
Hope looks like the breath we hold
As the vase at edge of shelf
Is about to fall
By ignorant nudge of right hand
You wrote after first heart break
You ended up scribbling love
Just the way you did
A day before your heart tasted hurt
Looks so similar to dreams
Of marooned islands
Each brick of your home
Drips jumbled alphabets of the address
Your journey intends you to take
Is the golden sunrise
In the brown pupils of my Maa
This day would stumble upon a moment
That could be stamped as miracle
It has contours of bridge
Above flooded rushing river during monsoons
That will take to safest abode
A close look can unveil
It dons war scenes of pair of voices
In the center lobe of mind
One holding incandescent bulb
And other dark seams of pain
Relentless trials of the former
For demolition of later's kingdom
Wet footprints of tomorrow
Wearing colour of rose bengal
On floor of parched anxiety
