Turnoff
Yuki 5d
If you could choose between
losing yourself and discovering
the deepest parts of your soul with
their weakness, fragilities and fears,
what will your choice be eventually?
And if you go for the first one,
will you walk in the streets
like an empty body looking lost
among humans whom souls you
cannot and do not want to touch?
And if you go for the second one
will you have the strength to fight
the demons who will come at night?
Will you see your soul while looking
in the mirror and recognize it as yours
in its whole being, with its scars?
If you could be whole, would
you still choose to be a half?

Trapdoor
Yuki 5d
I fell for you
but you were
already gone
as soon as
I got up again,
like a magician
through a trapdoor.
That was the time
I began to believe
in magic.

To a friend
Yuki Mar 7
I can see your strength
all encased in your teeth,
in the smile that can’t hide
your never ending zest for life.
For if you burst out laughing
you sound like notes to a song
whose rhythm I can’t follow
but can’t help to dance along.

Caution
Yuki Feb 21
How do you walk
through a mind
filled with items
without fear of
having to pay
for the damage
if anything shatters?
Feb 20 · 193
Perfume
Yuki Feb 20
Odorless ink turned
into sweet fragrance
through this poem
for it smells of you.
Feb 20 · 107
World War III
Yuki Feb 20
Like flowers in
soldiers’ guns
your shooting
left me unharmed
in the war between
both of our hearts
where all that remained
were the ‘love me not’
****** petals.
Feb 19 · 348
Farewell
Yuki Feb 19
The soul has
its own weight
and I felt lighter
when you went away
not knowing if mine
was gone for good
or gone with you.
Feb 17 · 153
Melting
Yuki Feb 17
In the coldest of days
through the sighs
of the wind
I still was aflame
for I heard your voice
calling my name.
Feb 17 · 152
Pink slip
Yuki Feb 17
Ever since you left
I’ve been wondering
what it’d be like if we
were just parallel lines
never destined to meet
instead of two rusted cars
with broken brakes at a
crossroad without signage.
Yuki Feb 17
The ache of a heart
who cannot rest
for it has been apart
from you who were my best,
the best part
of all art.
Feb 15 · 72
Thorns
Yuki Feb 15
To chase
honesty
in a bramble
rather than
in a thornless
rose.
Feb 14 · 138
Wishing on the stars
Yuki Feb 14
Why making wishes
on a dying creature
as a shooting star?
So beautiful death
can seem if seen
from a distance.
For me comets are
named after all the
people who decided
my sky wasn’t their
place anymore.
Feb 13 · 96
Permission to be
Yuki Feb 13
Give the gates
of your heart
permission to
be wide open
but make sure
not to let winter
settle in your
feeble bones.
Feb 13 · 386
My fragility
Yuki Feb 13
My fragility is a shared space
in which anyone feels free
to stay for a while
make a mess
and leave.
Feb 13 · 74
My bloody poem
Yuki Feb 13
I deprive my heart
of blood for I write
these verses with it
in the hope it would
merge with yours
the moment you see
my heart is meaningless
if you spurn my love.
Feb 10 · 225
Like in fairy tales
Yuki Feb 10
The Little Mermaid gave up
her voice so as to be near
her beloved prince and
that’s how little girls
are taught from the
earliest age that
as women the price
to pay for love will
always be their silence.
Feb 5 · 157
Beethoven
Yuki Feb 5
In my heart a
marching band
is playing
“Ode to Joy”
and I can’t help
but sing along.
Jan 31 · 87
The fine line
Yuki Jan 31
You are trapped in that limbo in
which your freedom coincides
imperceptibly with your loneliness
without being able to tell the
difference between the two,
scouring for an answer in that
horizon you are staring at
enchanted, for it is just like you:
the fine line between
the abyss and the sky.
Jan 30 · 71
Anatomy of feelings
Yuki Jan 30
Show me the heart
who was never cruel
and I will admit my
fallacy in believing
that hate is less
fearful than love.
Always too many absents
at life’s lessons and no one
who raises a hand.
Yuki Jan 29
Disappointments are like
baby tooth:
they teach you to smile
when you are still weak
but make room for
something stronger
as soon as you
are ready.
Jan 28 · 763
My rebirth hymn
Yuki Jan 28
It’s an ode to myself
the one enclosed in this ink
in the middle of the page
as a symbol of a heart
that got rhythm
after years of silence
thanks to my pen only.
Yuki Jan 28
To naively trust someone and
show them your weakest spots
is like giving guns to the enemies
and hope they will not fire.
It’s like throwing punches in the mirror
praying that your knuckles won’t bleed.
It’s like talking to the sky
thinking it will understand
and eventually talk back,
but it won’t.
Jan 27 · 91
The sea in you
Yuki Jan 27
Stormy sea you treasure
and I dive into you
to swim towards the
deepest depths of your ocean
into apnea because
that’s how you leave me:
breathless.
Jan 27 · 133
Fall of a lightning
Yuki Jan 27
During the storm
the lightning falls
undaunted towards
the earth heedless of
the damage it will cause,
choosing to come into
existence anyway
to embrace life.
So be your own lightning
and trust your vibes.

Heartbreaks
Yuki Jan 27
She asked me the moon
so I packed my bags
and traveled through
thousands of galaxies
just to steal it from the sky
and gift it to her.
When I was home
light years later
she told me she got
sick of waiting and decided
to settle for someone
who gave her a flower
by simply picking it up
from the grass.
Jan 27 · 710
The Aurora
Yuki Jan 27
I have been blessed with
a rose of blue petals
upon which I could read:
I will wait for you
‘till the end of time
on the other side of the world
to admire the most beautiful
northern lights
that are nothing compared
to the blue of your eyes.
Jan 25 · 91
Wink
Yuki Jan 25
****** were my eyes
and all their blinks
for I missed you
in those seconds
my eyelids kept me
away from the sight
of your beauty.
Jan 25 · 149
Midnight
Yuki Jan 25
Blessed are all the dreamers
who see the sky smiling
while looking at the crescent.
Jan 24 · 132
Machismo
Yuki Jan 24
The lion is called
king of the forest
for its beauty only
because it is well known
that the one who
fights every battle
is the lioness
living under her
hungry king’s thumb
and remembered
by no name at all.
Jan 24 · 243
May the odds
Yuki Jan 24
To the lucky ones
in whose hands
a ladybug has landed
today
I wish to not
search for a sign
or better a guise
to be great.
Jan 22 · 117
Seasons never change
Yuki Jan 22
A bruised body
doesn’t hurt as much as
a shaking soul
and trembling heart.
It’s the winter in me.
My ice-covered mind
is too cold to think properly
and my hands so frozen
aren’t able to
reach out and hold
spring.
Jan 19 · 458
24 carat
Yuki Jan 19
What I like about diamonds
are their splinters,
the thorns of the rose
you picked up in winter.
Jan 19 · 619
Recovery
Yuki Jan 19
We are told that everything
is going to be alright
someday
but what they do not realize
is that it is not
about when but how.
I have been trying to heal
by tearing myself to pieces
so far
and isn’t that also
a start?
Jan 18 · 72
Five hundred pounds
Yuki Jan 18
What should I do
when my heart
feels so heavy?
I am not much of
a weight lifter,
I do not know
how to raise it
from the ashes
and bring it back to life.
Jan 17 · 143
Sunshine
Yuki Jan 17
This is how I love
to remember you:
like a sleeping angel
while that faintest
light seeped through
the window in the small
hours of the morning.
Jan 16 · 71
Little Red Riding Hood
Yuki Jan 16
The girl who cried wolves
has been told too many times
to shut her mouth
that now she is crying her own name
having she herself become
the wolf.
Yuki Jan 15
I’ve never been good at dancing
but I tried my hardest
to not step on your feet
on the dance floor
just to prove to you
that I always made sure
not to trample on your heart
even if
I’ve never been good at love.
But right now
I find myself
dancing all alone
with an empty heart.
Jan 13 · 409
Late night thoughts
Yuki Jan 13
How do I forgive my eyes
for their weakness
turned to tears
in the middle of my sleep?
For all the times
I’ve been awake at night
apologizing to the pillow
for never being able
to keep it dry.
Jan 12 · 445
Emotionless by now
Yuki Jan 12
The hardest pain is the one
that you will not feel
because your heart
has already experienced
death before.
Jan 10 · 257
Better than a Monet
Yuki Jan 10
We are all museums
of anger and discontent
and we feel obligated to
show our artworks
to the world.
Jan 9 · 83
Let me
Yuki Jan 9
Let me be your stuntman
to love you
when you don’t have
the courage to.
Jan 9 · 293
Priorities
Yuki Jan 9
I lost many people
in my life but
at least I got what
I deserved:

self love.
Jan 9 · 90
Taking a shower
Yuki Jan 9
Showers make you
vulnerable.
You are *****,
not only your body
but your soul too

The thoughts running
through your head
as the water runs
through your skin

Not knowing if it is
actually water
or maybe tears.
Jan 8 · 59
Self titled
Yuki Jan 8
We all have poetry
inside of us.
So take this poem,
title it with your name,
listen to the beautiful
verses your heart
dictates to you
and write them down.
Jan 8 · 86
First date
Yuki Jan 8
What are your plans
for tonight?
How about kissing
each other’s fears away
until light
comes in our way?
Yuki Jan 8
Sitting at a window
seat on a train

looking outside
feeling kind of nostalgic

watching my life
pass by together
with the landscape.
Jan 7 · 300
You were my person
Yuki Jan 7
I wish I could erase you
completely from my mind,
but I saw my reflection
when I looked into your eyes.
So how am I supposed
to forget me?
Yuki Jan 7
Let me discover
the weight of your heart.
Open your chest and
hand it to me.
Does it treasure love?
If it doesn’t,
take the liberty to
undress my soul
and steal it from there.
You know I won’t mind.
I will take your darkness instead
and put your demons
inside of me
to let them destroy me.
I know you won’t mind.
Jan 7 · 89
Ghost of you
Yuki Jan 7
I still wait for you
in that spot in which
we would have escaped
when we needed
each other.
Did you forget
the way?
Jan 6 · 243
The world outside
Yuki Jan 6
Little girl
don’t you cry.
I know you’re scared.
Everything seems
so much bigger than you.
The world could be
a dreadful place
sometimes.
It spins too fast
for you to
keep up with it.
You’ve got to run.
You are allowed
to fall too
but be quick
to get back up
on your feet.
Nobody is gonna wait
for you out there.
They will even step on you
any time they can.
It is a mortal marathon.
Time to grow up
little girl.
