The winter blues are rich with gloom,
twisting my heart with apathy.

And perhaps shame too, let it not hide behind the weather.

Is it this dark obsession or some hidden transgression?

All the lessons learned, but failure is all that remains.

What road is left, I cannot see between the flickers of my dwindling flame.
Being in the dark can trigger you
to realize how precious the light is,
how valuable is the time you have
been given in this adventure.

It's not important what colour you
are or how fat or thin you are.
You should ask yourself:
"Where are you going and how ?"
Your answer to that is what really
matters the most. I appreciate if
you spend your time to read this
poetry collection.

I have recently published my first book on Amazon. It's called "light in the darkness", with two options (e-book and paperback). It's available in a couple of countries.

In this book, I wanted to write my lines very honest and brief, while some poems taking five pages, some of them took less than half. I want people to remember that it is Ok to not being Ok, you can move forward by choosing yourself and your belief.

Paperback available in (USA, UK, DE, FR, ES, IT, JP, CA)
E-Book available in (USA, UK, DE, FR, ES, IT, NL, JP, BR, CA, MX, AU, IN)

Even the second one I shall give to you,
Whether to kindle it or to break it,
It depends entirely on you.
My HP Poem #1776

we went together like fire and dynamite
something was bound to explode
you and me together was like lighting a match and igniting explosives, nothing went well when i was with you

A rose of budding blossoms,
Your eyes glitter gold.
The laughter of a meadow,
sounds like yours I'm told.

I hope you're doing well,
even though you're far away.
Just know I still love you
even to this day.

Our bond might break again,
but I'll always hold you close.
I hope you make new friends
more than you needed me most.

Don't be afraid to forget me,
just don't wipe our memories away.
I hope you still love me,
even to this day.

I loved you like a sibling,
but then again I still do.
I will never be able forget
how much I cared for you.

I can't stand distance
because we're far away.
Just know I still love you
even to this day.

Maybe we'll meet again one day,
and we'll talk with kindled friendship.
But that's just a maybe,
it's not exactly definite.

Stay healthy and take care,
even though I'm far away.
I hope we'll still love each other
even into the future days.
Okay guys! A bit sooner than I expected, my book is out!
Here’s the summary:
“A hero or a villain
To them it’s black or white
You’re a spectrum of a person
And none of them are right”

Alex’s Spilled Ink is a compilation of Alex’s poems, divided into three parts: heaven, earth and hell.
Heaven. Dip your hands in the warm, crytal water and reach for the words at the bottom of the lake. Inspiration. Hope. Love. Which will you take?
Earth. Keep your feet on the ground but look up towards the sky. What do you see? The moon, the stars, life passing by?
Hell. Fire burns but so does passion. You fight your battles and sometimes you lose. Hurt. Pain. Grief. Keep on fighting, there’s no excuse.

Alex's Spilled Ink is available only on every amazon (free on kindle unlimited!)

I hope you guys like my little compilation of poetry!
