know that
you’re not for everyone
and that is okay
every living thing may sound
like they’re always trying to say please
other times,
you’re simply left to watch yourself happen
and do the rest of the saving
but keep in mind
for this space on earth is yours
and you still matter as much

it is in the feeling of always
the feeling that’s quite inerasable
that I still see you
although many afters had come,
although the air has already
been mouthing the days
over and over
for its tomorrows,
tomorrow
still somehow finds you

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

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

the war begins
when we forget
to love them enough
since all we do
is lie and break them carelessly
we rob our own state of innocence
caught between falling and feeling more
than anyone ever should
like this
has always been our sweet kind of profanity

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.

the small little gestures
always felt like oxygen to me
and I’d never have thought,
of all the simplest thing
you ever had to do
was hear you say my name
enough to feel whole and alive again

another night comes,
another night
of walking
my flawed skin and scars
to the stars
especially to the ones
we usually come home to

-a.

Afiqah Oct 2017

despite it all,
we fell for most
of our human parts
the ones
that felt a little bit broken
but more than enough
to make our souls
sing and dance for love
