The angel of death once eclipsed our goodbye Embraced you within a golden abyss marked with our glistening eyes I’ve pictured this conversation more times than I testify Yet a chance of it occurring leaves me mortified For there’s a sweet escape in lingering within stolen time Before your demise feels real allows me to bathe in a tempting crime.
Regardless, this hollowed illusion comes to fracture Present now a past but my life plays backwards The gravity of reality cascades upon me Trapped in a realm of denial unable to be set free Although I am the creator of this melancholic fantasy The price of release means a lifetime of apathy
Instead, I extend, and live within a conversed eulogy Attempting final goodbyes laced with ambiguity. - epiphanyofwords
Hymns of chaos are all my vocal chords sang, while the blissful sun approached the morning. All I could feel was ebbing darkness, fading away and carting my hope away with it oh hymns of chaos, sung in sweet harmony ! How your notes blend with the climate of my melancholy!
It's been a while since I visited this app. Alot of activities and happenings prevented this, but I am back! It's nice to be with my colleagues here again.
I don’t belong in the background. I don’t want to live in the background. But I do. I don’t belong where I live. I realize that now. Maybe if I belonged in the background, I wouldn’t be like them. They belong in the background. But I don’t. I am not like them. But I don’t have to be like them. I don’t have to belong in their lives. Not in the spaces, the margins. Not in the background. I just have to be me. You might think you know me. You might think you know me as a woman. As an Asian. But you don’t. You don’t know me. Yes, I am a woman. Yes, I am an Asian. But I am not only those things. You don’t know me for who I am. I am not just a woman. I am not just an Asian. You don’t know who I am. I am me. I am not a hero. I am not a savior. But I don’t belong in the background. And I am just getting started.
