Chasing my dreams of becoming an author in a disorderly manner and writing weird stuff that pops up in my mind in the shower. *shrugs* Idk. I hope you enjoy!

Hope you’re all doing okay today. :)

since you’ve been gone the sun has bleached the colour from my heart

August 1, 2020


Sky painted ceiling 
Stars inside my room
Still you're out of this world 

Illusion of control
Choices I make
Still I couldn't change fate

Paint it black 
My hearts greyed
Colors only when I close my eyes

Desert to glass
World on fire
Still I shudder from your cold final kiss 

Sculpture of flesh
A mind in body
Still a lost soul
I made lots of references during this piece to the songs I was listening to as I wrote each stanza.
It’s okay to be lost. It is okay to be found. It is okay to feel. We are all just making it up as we go. 
I hope you all are doing well today. :)
