peaceful thinking
Alaska Young Jun 2
I find peace in thinking
that I could settle somewhere
cold but green
being sustainable and nature-lover

Alaska Young May 23
i don't forgive easily
i hold grudge
tight and firm
i hold it like an impaled object
stabbed in me
afraid that if I make a slight wrong move
or have the courage to pull it off
i might bleed to death

help me.
-slight confession (part1.1)

happy days
Alaska Young May 23
How many of your days here are happy?
And how many of those are real?
It is my sincerest wish that you find real happiness.
Alaska Young May 21
Living in this world was never easy for me
to be honest i used to find peace in the thought of death
end of all - pains, sufferings, trials, heartbreaks
because why try hard to live when dying is hundred percent easier
I socialize, but deeply I hate human interactions
My mom used to tell me when she's mad
that I'm better off alone
And I must admit I'm really good at being alone
My best friend said that she can't imagine someone would tame my attitude, I'm twisted, complicated and I can't blame them
I don't even understand myself most of the time

not us, not anymore
Alaska Young Mar 20
They say,
If two people are meant to be,
In the end it'll be their story.

But after you left, I say
If we're still meant to be,
Then **** destiny

i get it now
Alaska Young Jan 9
it took--
countless sleepless nights
river of tears; ocean of sadness
dozen of prescribed pills
never-ending cycle of time travel to the memories we shared, half-hoping it'll happen again
years of doubting my worth
"Why you didn't stay?" I asked myself.
And the answer hit me like a thunderstorm stirring in a hot humid afternoon waiting to strike anytime:

"Some people came into our lives not to save us, but to teach us how to save ourselves."
i save myself today

what overthinking did
Alaska Young Nov 2019
you started it with a nick
and end it
with a twinge
but it's my overthinking that
tore it apart
and broke my own heart

deaf by choice
Alaska Young Sep 2019
i think our biggest problem today
doesn't lie anymore
with not saying what we wanted to say
in listening only to what we wanted to hear

they say they will like you
until the storm within you starts stirring up
and blew them all away

and you were left alone
no one
no one
survived your storm

i lost me
Alaska Young Aug 2019
i lost count of sheep
on waiting for you to tell me something
i want to hear

i lost track of time
on waiting for you to catch me
in this falling game

but above all

i lost myself
trying to be someone
you want me to be

the first
Alaska Young Aug 2019

on the amount of pain
we'll endure for the first heartbreak

it'll either be
too much
too less

and in between is getting worse everyday

what i want to ask you
Alaska Young Jul 2019

like i'm an easy thing to let go?
Jul 2019 · 468
what if vs. why does
Alaska Young Jul 2019
which weighs heavier?
the regrets of what did not happen
the memories of what had happened

Go on, girl
Alaska Young Jun 2019
People die
              and feelings change

       Feelings die
              and people change

                    but from the start,
                                              in between,
                                                           and in the end....
                                                                                                  life always,
                                                                                          always goes on..
and so do you.

But when you utter the word
I heard
"I'm sorry".

True Love
Alaska Young May 2019
When do you know it’s love?
When you’re in love with yourself
as much as you are in love
with someone.

True love will tell you
that you are
May 2019 · 43
every you
Alaska Young May 2019
I wonder how could I forget
something I just said
in a blink of a second
but couldn’t forget
every detail of you.

You gotta write what you feel,
when you feel it.
Rawness became so underrated these days.

Pain to Pen
Alaska Young May 2019
How did I learn to write?

When I learn, that pain can actually be a pen.
And blood turns to ink.
i learned writing in a hard way

What else?
Alaska Young May 2019
They asked me why I’m sad.
And I tell them,
if you’re not happy,
what else could you be?

He tells me, he wouldn’t.
Yet he ******* did.

A little less
Alaska Young May 2019
Everyone wanted to be happy.

Me, I just want to be a little less sad.
Alaska Young May 2019
People who are very cautious of
who can walk in and out
of their lives
experience pain in extreme way

You can't blame their hearts.
May 2019 · 182
Alaska Young May 2019
Perhaps that's the thing about writing
It demands sadness.
May 2019 · 87
Alaska Young May 2019
my heart goes
to those
in depression and anxiety
sadness takes too much sometimes

moments you shouldn't be visiting
quit tripping over them darling
i'm telling you, it's dangerous
it's like intentionally tripping again over the same rock
to willingly fall on the same spot you've been
it hurts
you already knew that
and it's ridiculous to be hurt by choice
it's crazy to made a mistake twice
so stop doing autopsies on memories
that died long ago
it's not worth it
