it is fragile
these lives we live
but we’re always a step closer
to many of life’s greatest tokens
and that is when
we learn to see how our scars
haunts the brave

we were told to paint
our walls white with lies
so in every day,
we crash among
these wicked, twisted oddities and
get drunk in tender places
we ought to simply only
keep them in soft, quiet stares

you romanticized
the hell out of my flawed skin
in between
cigarette-stained kisses
then gently made me wear love
with forevers alongside your name
many nights after

the heart
knows its always next in line
and it never lies
when they say about you,
fucking things up more often  
if they can still fist up and beat for you,
count your goddamn self lucky
to still have that gut going just enough
for life’s many affairs

how cliche it still is
and how it is still you
I find in between drizzles
from the slow, showery, wet mornings
and somehow,
my signature scent still lies
within them and I still choose
to welcome you to my thoughts  
like this
over and over again

they’ll always prefer you broken
either way,
they only fear you
since they’re too unwilling to fight
their own goddamned demons alone
yet, they still ask us why
we behave so

we won
over many nights
just enough
to hear one’s love breathe
and more than enough
to keep our colors stay
wildly sane in each other’s

-a.

Afiqah Nov 17

and till today,
love still wins,
love still sits by
alongside your name
like it was its only duty
to ever recognize how well
you’ve gently held my scars
and made them fit into yours
like your own

-a.

Afiqah Nov 12

say it,
say it again
with your eyes
like you always do
and I’ll come and stay
for a few more crazys
and we’ll turn all our scars
into our most favorite thing
about the other
… like we always do

-a.

I never knew
I’d feel this much
so tended and trustful
when you only held out a hand to me
and all the brokenness
floats away to dust
reforming my whole back again
