i imagine
you look quite
stunning
in dawn’s light
and i imagine
your hand
would fit quite nicely
in mine
and i imagine
that it might
feel wrong
before it feels quite right
but i imagine
you look quite
stunning

The mouth is the small compass of the soul,
Without dials, true north, or magnetic force,
The ungaugeable instrument of the voice,
In directionless modulations of undertow,
To circumnavigate under cartographer’s pole
Stars guide our wayfinding heirlooms of words.

That darkness I know.
I know its depth,
its cold hug.

Yehuda,
I don't forget you;
where do you abide
or not, near or far?

Once upon a time
our lips met
under the applause
of the moon's shadow
and stars shine.

Where you are
laid to rest,
I do not know,
but memories
are treasures,
plain and simple
like untouched snow.

You know something
You were right
All along you were right
You saw what I didn't
And knew I'd be alright
Because you're strong enough for both of us
To win in this fight

Poems aren't written,
they're found,
Somewhere in your head the words are waiting,
They're sprawled across the floor,
You just need to pick them up,
Make a path with them,
Let your path guide observers,
And if you can't write,
Walk down somebody's else's path first,
First poem I've written, to anybody who reads this is hope you enjoyed it and it made you day a little better
I've seen my self in thousands
of different faces
I believe there is still more to see

to disagree
on how we view the world
is not a sin

Deep down in my soul
I know
Bring back my eyes

Take away the fear
Let me have that last joke
Let me know that it still exists

Does it
Does it exist
Please, deep down I know
Don't I

That doesn't make much sense
But I'm so so so in love
Angrily in love
It's just so deep
And I'm so so so lucky

I always thought we were the perfect match.

i don’t grieve when my layers shed.
it’s all a part of my monthly rebirth.
i’m a split yolk,
milk teeth hanging on by a thread,
all the texts i wouldn’t send.
stability stings like tweezing splinters.
i don’t want my mother to recognize me.
eighteen has been screaming change since day one.
i can’t teach myself how to smoulder.

Malam itu aku senyum-senyum lagi.
Senang sekali.
Notifikasi yang kutunggu muncul, hanya selang 5 menit lewat beberapa detik.
"Ok." katanya.
Senang.
Walaupun aku nggak tau apa artinya, apa yang tersirat.
Bahwa yang sebenar-benarnya; ia fana.

You are an art, full
a wonderful maze

The corners I'll paint
with this mischievous lips

How do I keep calm
when your sunset left a spark

And I can see your eyes
through this water paradise

May you be the storm, but
won't be fearing me to drown

The blazes amazed me
but I will never frown

To lose myself in yours
till the end of time
The red sunset is not a sin.

words scrawled across my skin
words that i cant read
only feel
they carve themselves into my flesh
a constant reminder that they are there
and i am nowhere

and even though i cant take the pain from the words
the pain will fade
it always does

until there are more words to be carved
printed into my skin,
never to be forgotten
but not quite remembered

There is art
In your heart
Painting pictures
When I lay
My head down on your chest.

There are songs in your eyes
Singing lullabies
When you hover
Pin me down
With your stare.

There is a poem
on the tip
of your tongue
I taste it
When I kiss you.

You are a masterpiece.

I'm back!
So sorry everyone, the last few weeks have been... a strain on me.
I am still doing my media course and all, but mentally and emotionally,
I was slipping down into a dark place. My sleeping patterns have been messed up, my nerves have been completely out of control, my self-doubt, anxiety and depression drained me so much that I found it really hard to write, so I needed time to gather myself. It was so hard for me to pick up a pen. To do anything. My smiles were hollow and I just felt so lost.

I just wanted to apologise, I didn't mean to worry anyone. I'm truly touched by the out-pour of support for me. I got so many messages asking if I was alright. I can't express how much that warmed my heart. I'm so used to people being angry at me for my silence that it usually scares me to come back. By nature, with everything I've experienced, it's made me more and more of an isolationist. To all of those people, truly, thank you so so much for staying and just being kind to me...
Really. Thank you T-T
And thank you to all my followers, old and new.
245 followers... I can't even... T-T
I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record but thank you.
I'm back now, and I'm feeling better.
It's easier to hold my pen so I will resume spilling my ink.

I'll continue the Masked Bard on Thursday, I'm free the whole day.
I have no idea of my schedule the coming week.
Again, I appreciate everyone one of you.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.
Thank you for staying with someone like me.
With much love,
Lyn ***

Most things
you've been led to believe
are wrong; many of your worst
suspicions, true. The world is far more
evil than you have yet discovered; more
evil than you dare imagine. Witness that
at this very moment, any remaining good
is being systematically eradicated.

Kafka Joint
there is no stopping me
from doing nothing sensible,
I am quite merciless in such matters.
I'm not staying,
it's my blame.
I'll leave the innocent;
I'm not the same.
I've got blood on my hands.
Pressure to understand.
You're right.
You've always been.
I tend to forget.
I won't bother you,
still my existence bothers me.
My mind smothers me.
The nights scare me;
comfort is scarce.
The dark makes things worse,
and this silence hurts.
It can be so loud,
the noise of nothing.
The sounds of your thoughts,
utterly isolated.
I love y'all;
but I don't love me.
I can't live up to what you all think of me-
all feedback is welcome and appreciated!

Let's tear her clothes
She is a doll , she says nothing,
Okay, she is fine.
Let's scratch her body
She says nothing,
Okay, she is fine.
Now let's cut her hair,
She don't feel
She don't cry ,
Okay, she is fine.
And our fun is over!
Now let's burn her
She says nothing,
Okay, she is fine,
She still smile.
