a little empty space

There are days when I feel like a tub of ice cream, and people end up taking bigger scoops out of me then they ought to, leaving me a little less for myself. But I’ve made peace with being a little incomplete, because there is only more space to grow, to flourish. Taking parts of…… Continue reading a little empty space

a list for when everything gets tiring

Some days I find it hard to get out of bed and face the day, or hold a conversation even with the people I love talking to. It gets straining to even jump in the shower or eat a snack, and everything just feels tired and unnecessary. We are under the constant pressure that if…… Continue reading a list for when everything gets tiring

Life Update

new beginnings 🌿

The world begins again with the sky being enveloped in clouds, it looks comfortable and at rest. At peace with everything it’s overlooking. The day hadn’t looked so peaceful in a while. It intertwines everything it looks at in poetry. Did it know I needed this today? That I needed to be reminded to be…… Continue reading new beginnings 🌿

Life Update

thank you, for being so unkind to me :)

August was like an unsympathetic and ruthless friend who pretends to love you and care for you, but then you find their knife lodged in your spine. If you want to give someone cutlery, the least you could’ve done was tied a ribbon around it. Where are your manners August? The entire month I was…… Continue reading thank you, for being so unkind to me 🙂

a dreamy place ☁️

I want to live somewhere where the clouds are not as high and come to visit me through my window. The green is so green that it looks like someone who loved the colour spilled it all over the place with dew and little pretty flowers here and there. The houses are little and cozy,…… Continue reading a dreamy place ☁️

Life Update

four mental break downs and three coffees please

The last few days have been a rollercoaster, not the exhilarating kind where you have a boost of adrenaline and feel at the top of the world, but the kind where you’ve had too much food and didn’t give it enough time to settle and now you’re going to barf your guts out. I’ve never…… Continue reading four mental break downs and three coffees please

why i cant write poems about you

first of all how do you comprehend I can limit something as infinite as the universe into a page of words – (I can’t) you are everything that they are trying to contain (and everything that they can’t) you’re a bursting nebula the space between two stars you are something that doesn’t make it on…… Continue reading why i cant write poems about you

Floating Thoughts

somewhere where the sky is in colours I’ve never seen

I want to run away for a while. From these gigantic concrete buildings, from the graded literature paper on my desk, the people that think they know me well, and mostly from myself. I want to run and run and run and run and run and run and run. To somewhere far where I don’t…… Continue reading somewhere where the sky is in colours I’ve never seen

I’ve been falling and falling (in love with everything)

The days are pleasant with big fluffy clouds and calm winds and sunlight that feels like a warm hug. I have never felt more at peace with my surroundings. I have never been so in love with everything. There are days when the sky would be bluer or the clouds would put on a show…… Continue reading I’ve been falling and falling (in love with everything)

Poetry

if these walls could talk (i hope they wouldn’t say anything)

they have seen me fighting with my own shadows shattering my own mind and rearranging my bones and then walk out the door like a personified sunny day they know what’s written under my skin, the things I leave unsaid, what my nightmares consist of and how well I pretend if someone were to write…… Continue reading if these walls could talk (i hope they wouldn’t say anything)
