here i am again

FREE WRITING

here i am again
my words don't flow out in the way they did last summer
they don't write me
i need to write them now

do you want to know why?

because i stopped writing when i stopped hurting
when i got over it
and you wouldn't believe all the things that happened since then
you wouldn't
or maybe, the thing is that you would

i went on
after all the times i didn't want to get up

sometimes maybe

FREE WRITING

sometimes 
maybe
only perhaps
you have to understand that
you are not the star the earth evolves around
you are not everything to everybody
people will hurt you
they will drain you
whether they do it on purpose
or not
and just the other way around
you will hurt them and drain them 
and again
on purpose or not

and maybe
only perhaps
that is alright
that is not something to lose sleep over

others cannot control your being

no one else

FREE WRITING

don't you get it?
don't you understand that all this time
you have been telling yourself
you're worthless
you're less than them
you're small and tiny and hopeless
you're not whole

while all you were being
was
the most
flawed and quirked and perfectly wrong
most whole version

of you.

and no one else can do that.

read that again.

no one else.

tornadoes

FREE WRITING

i was a tornado
i shook you up
i made you realize
i made you tear up
i left you wanting

i seemed far away from all that you knew
and maybe i was

but honey
tornadoes aren't always a bad thing.

that's all i have to say tonight

FREE WRITING

you know what?
i don't care if you're tall or short, a girl or a boy, or else. i don't care if you're skinny or bigger, short haired or long haired, or blue haired. i don't care if you have curls or straight hair. i don't care about your skin colour, the size of your lips or your nose or the colour of your eyes. i don't care about all those little things you hate about you and your personality....

i know now

FREE WRITING

i know now
that moving on 
is not simply jumping on all over 
it's moving forward
keeping on
heading on 
strolling and running and jumping on that railway of your heart

it hurts your heart
it tests your patience
it cultivates you
and your soul

you will feel less whole than you've ever felt
and full again
and empty again
but i promise you
after the time you needed has passed
you will feel a whole other whole

difficult to love

FREE WRITING

This one goes out to every girl that ever even just had the thought of being difficult to love. You are. You are difficult to love. Because you are extraordinary. You don’t settle for whatever boy that jumps into your life. You hardly ever fall in love, don’t you? But when you do, you do so deeply. And sometimes you try to give your everything to someone. But honey, he doesn’t get it. He doesn’t understand that this is your...

you loved me

but i could not accept that love
because i wasn’t used to it

should i have tried harder? should i have tried to make you stay? should i have shown you my love? because god, you were patient with me. and you were all i wanted and needed. and somehow, again, i mentioned to...

maybe you were wrong for me
not because you didn’t love me enough
or because you didn’t do everything you could to keep me

maybe it was me
maybe all this time i have been blaming you
when it was me


it was me who always pulled back when you tried to kiss me

it was me who always laughed it away as a silly idea, when you talked about us together in the future. even if the future meant...
