Pale fading jaded moon
Echoes of the same old routes
Subconscious fed what we are read
Some consume such hazy fumes
Supposed repeats become belief
To each eye is dry and empty
When disorientation looms, Jesus
Our efforts count when only viewed

Hard to shake off the grey fog
As the pace of life seems lost
Host a place for creative minds
Build upon what you've been taught
Changing layers of further thought
When heavy clouds pull into view
Energy depletes inside over time
Should you stand affront or wait anew

I started to change,
when I decided to love you
I learned to dress nicely
and gave gifts to you too
I dyed my hair brown
It reminded me of your eyes
And got clothes colored red,
the color you always liked
I tried to loose weight
so you might like me more
And I changed the way I act
I wasn't me anymore,
You started to like me
for all the changes I decided to have
I loved you for who you are
You loved me for who i'm not

It's funny how we start anything with so much zeal, gain momentum and
when we're really close to our destiny,
things become difficult and problematic,
that's when we're really tested...
when the beginner's luck is over.

I just finished reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho which inspired me to write this. It's a must read for everyone!

As much as I wanted to go near you, I could not.
Even if I exhaust all that I’ve got.

I was the sea, you were the sky.
Waiting for you is tiring, I wouldn’t lie.

Our interaction would've been lit
But we are destined not to meet.
A short poem I wrote back in 2016 (11-28) when I was in 11th grade. I can't honestly seem to remember where I got these thoughts from lol

it takes numerous efforts
to fall in love

but it takes one dreadful lie
to mess the whole thing up
you won't dreadfully lie to someone you truly love.

Have you ever sit and think like this whole time you’re the only one who tryna make someone happy?

And realizing that it’s time for you to stop and let the other person do that from now on?

Now I'm not even sure if I loved a coward,
or didn't love you enough.

Everyone leaves
And i wondered
Why wasn't i enough
Then i realised
I was too much
For them to handle
I was more than enough

Burning flame
It doesn't disappear
What we fear
It brings back our shame
I know I hide the flaws
I cover it up nice
But it is inevitable
That it will find its face
and my efforts will go to waste
