Hope for love,
but also expect pain.
Because life is real,
and not an imaginary lane.
Maybe that's the only way
to stay sane,
in a world filled with
hate and disdain.

Standing so close to me
I don't feel your presence.
I guess I'll just push you away,
and embrace the absence.

I'm fine,
I'm just not fine at all.
I'm happy,
I just can't feel it.
How weird my emotions are,
messy and unapologetic.
Maybe that's the beauty of my soul.
It shines like anything,
but is dark as coal.

My stories are sad, I am not.
They are like the most beautiful plots
that tragically ended,
in gunshots.

Just because I'm going through a tough time does not mean I am sad or that I have given up. I am the author of my stories and even if this story ended on a sad note, the next one won't.

Maybe I'm the moon,
and darkness my lover.
I glow when I'm surrounded by it,
and the scars don't matter.

Love is the most beautiful feeling in the world and those who have found it are the luckiest. It does wonders, for it is the feeling that over shadows all the negativity and helps you evolve.

People watch with great anticipation,
the eclipses of moon and sun.
But what about the darkness
that covers me everyday?
The eclipse that eats me alive?

How often we are covered by the dark shadow of sadness, hurt, pain and depression but no one seems to care. No one pays attention to that. People only care about the beauty of celestial objects being covered but no one seems to notice the eclipse of humans. That's not important.

I shall rise.
Like a phoenix rises
from it's own ashes.
Death is not the end,
but only the beginning
of this new journey.

It is incredibly important to never lose ourselves in times of pain. Very crucial. Pain, sadness, hurt will always be there but what is necessary is to always stay strong and believe that you can rise even from your ashes, like a Phoenix does.
