It arrives,
Unnoticed, unannounced.

At first.

Seeping, dripping.

I put it down to a few stressful weeks.
I carry on.

It unpacks,
Worries, anxieties.

For now,

Whispers, creaks.

‘It will leave soon’ I think ‘It always does.’
I keep going.

It settles in,
Getting comfortable.

Getting louder,
And louder.

Banging thoughts,

‘Please don’t be happening again’.
I shuffle along my daily routine.

Claws in,


Shame, worthlessness,

‘Please go away’.
I’m barely coping.

Growing roots,
Into my brain and heart.

Blossoming pain,
With every beat.

Emptiness, loneliness,

Silence, Stillness,
‘I can’t move, I can’t cope.’

she wants float off
into the blue sky
and leave behind
all the familiar faces

she wants to disappear
into thin air
and avoid
all the complications

she wants to walk away
into the darkness
and shut out
the world

thank you
for the air we breathe, water to drink

for the strength to go against the current
and get lost in a sea of fish

for parents who love selflessly
for friends who became family

for someone who filled the gap
of a heart missing a piece

for mistakes that make us grow
for lessons that we now know

for all the questions and tears
in the meaning of things

for doubts and failures
for still moving forward

for laughter
a good enough reason to live

thank you

for it may not be the best year
but it still paves way for another year
Welcoming 2017 with gratitude and hope! Happy new year to all! :)

is Prince Charming really out there
or am I waiting for no one
am I a damsel in distress
or just looking for reasons
not to save myself

it seems so nice
how very few people
just get you

the way you talk
the way you think
the way you feel

no filters
no walls up
they just *get you
There are people, even strangers, that we just connect to easily. And that connection is so heartwarming :)

the hardest
part of
letting someone
you love
go is
making yourself
stay away
