    I teeter on the edge of sanity, knowing this habit will be the end of me. I want to crush this obsession, I want to quash it before my body betrays my thoughts. I want to rend apart all I cannot let go of, to wash my veins free of these stains. I want to be able to sleep at three past midnight without being haunted, to be removed from this madness…[Read more]

    As though she had seen through the veil of adulthood. As though the world has already cast its weary gaze upon her already, the world barely knew her existence. As though she had been through the pains of leaving home, travelling across lands and seas to finally belong somewhere.

    Twenty-one, she says, neither here nor there. Twenty-one, she…[Read more]

    Everything was in place. I stood there, gawking stupidly; you were busy, washing something. Leaving all my lines and most of my intelligence in my previous step, my jaw simply hung open because – once again – you’ve stunned me into oblivion.

    No longer can I pretend I recognize words; no longer can I pretend you do nothing to my racing heart.…[Read more]

    Old friend, how have you been.

    I always forget how you ride along, just in the backseat as my automated day goes past. I always wonder if you’re there but you reassure me with just enough doubt to drive my mood from hero to zero. So – welcome back, and enjoy this desolate wasteland you have created, this shell of a human barely…[Read more]

    I asked for a sign, I guess this was it.

    Or perhaps I’m reading too deep into the lines and just connected the uncorrelated dots anyway.

    My heart stilled so quickly yesterday. If any machines had been attached to me, they would have either seen my madness surface or an absolute flatline. I forgot to breathe in your presence. I forgot to…[Read more]

    I wore my heart upon them but you did not see. Perhaps you did but could not comprehend my crazed musings or the organized madness that I’ve created.

    My eyes will forever trace the white hems of your shirt, to the toned curves of your arm. They will follow the gentle slope of your neck to the nape of it, where the brilliance begins. They will…[Read more]

  • Z commented on the post, bus 3 years, 5 months ago

    I stared out the window, the hustle and bustle of the city passed by me without noticing. I ignored the magnificent buildings and the swaying trees, the summer light that cast its warm yellow glow, the laughing children and hurrying people.

    No, I ignored it all for I couldn’t keep you out of my mind.

    Even an inanimate object that transports…[Read more]

    I fear your chocolate brown hues have guessed my intentions; I fear your penetrating gaze has glanced into the depths of my desire; I fear your ears hearing the pounding of my thundering heart.

    I shake in your presence, for I am humbled by the elegance and confidence you exude. My chest is wound with the words I will never say, the questions I…[Read more]

    All I’m waiting for is that smile.

    One that fixes my day, one that enchants me. One that makes difficult days pass by slightly faster, one that quenches my thirst. One that sends shudders so violent up my spine, one that stills my turbulent heart.

    Just let me know if you’d let me love you.

    Five times I’ve met you, and only once I’ve decided to do something and before anything could happen, I saw the entirety of our possible future crashing down. You would have been the inexplicable smirk in the middle of my day, the beat my heart skips when I meet your brown hues. You would have been the involuntary glint in my eyes, the melody in…[Read more]

    I knew because the entire universe was reflected in the perfect specks in your eyes. I knew because the sun could not stop caressing your hair. I knew because light bent around you to colour you in the most beautiful tones and hues.

    You are the explosion at the beginning: shocking everything into life, breathing new air into all I see. You are…[Read more]

    Maybe my heart deserves this turmoil.

    Maybe I want this feeling of utter madness of nights I stay up with a personal slideshow of memories, where the few sentences exchanged have borne epics from this imaginative mind. It’s a helpless and pathetic struggle of ‘what if’s and ‘maybe’s – words unsaid; glances not caught; breath stuck in…[Read more]

  • Z commented on the post, mixtape 3 years, 7 months ago

    Your voice is stuck in my head, on repeat because I will it to be. How you grinned and told me your name, and in that moment the few frames of my poor memory has fed my obsession for weeks. You’re too cool for one, but I’d hug you to death with a mixtape of ballads and old R’n’B.

  • Z commented on the post, violet 3 years, 7 months ago

    “Stunning,” was all I breathed.

    Amidst the white and night, and where coffee’s pungent aroma rose from pots of chrome and black, you stood. My heart skipped before I even saw your heavenly visage, the tint of your hair had already intrigued me more than my heartstrings could manage. My blood ran from fire to cold ice in a matter of heartbeats…[Read more]
