It was thick and opaque like fog rolling in overnight. A silent killer, eating me away inside; I didn’t even realize – My heart was hardening. Mind always racing, pacing, thinking. A paralyzing anxiety.
Don’t let self-doubts get in the way of fully achieving your desires. Be fluid, like water. Pic taken by me at Prospect Park, Brooklyn.
Speaking the language of pain, of neglect; longing to be accepted and loved. Fighting this battle has become a pastime, Engaging in scenarios that trigger fears, anxieties, insecurities.

But you know, maybe it’s her, Maybe it’s becauseContinue reading “Daily Prompt: Broken, A Battle of Dysfunction”

A title can never dictate how the heart feels. Nor does it define a relationship. It can’t rationalize the bullshit swept under the rug.

When aggravated or displeased, he gnarled like an angry wolf, ready to pounce; willing toContinue reading “Daily Prompt: Disappear”
Leave when there’s nothing left to lose. Eventually, you’ll lose your sanity. Your conscious burdened, like heavy snowfall on tree branches.
Feeling lost. Seems to be more than just a feeling, a lifestyle. Pic taken by me on Fulton Street by South Street Seaport, NYC.
Bombarded by those thoughts, a war zone inside my head. Bombs go off, stand tall like a soldier; I want to fall down and cry.
Beware of unclear boundaries and unspoken expectations. Pic shot by me in Financial District, NYC.
I wonder, Do I take enough time to pause? To think? Repressing less desirable feelings, coasting on autopilot, trying to be unbothered. It’ll all be okay, it will all work itself out. Maybe if I believe it enough, it will be true. Pic taken by me, Riverside Park, NYC
A relationship extended beyond its expiration date; each lacked the courage to leave, to walk away from that which was unfulfilling. Compromising satisfaction for familiarity, because of time invested. Never mind the instability, the pain inflicted upon one another. What was thought to be “love,” was only selfishness. Then you ask yourself, did you liveContinue reading “Selfish Love”
I watched it die Once a big bountiful plant, it soon shrank in size Flowers ceased to blossom from its petals I couldn’t cultivate new ones I tried my hardest – I watered it when dry, yet not enough light I placed it in the sun With light too direct, the leaves burned Given theContinue reading “The Conditions Weren’t Right”
And so they fall faintly, The tears from your weeping soul. Pic taken by me at the Whitney Museum, NYC
A rainbow, so seemingly simple, yet complex A beautiful display of science above us, a natural work of art Sun rays, water droplets, light refraction, reflection Standing proudly, stretching yonder for all to see Radiant, amazing in its own right In ideal conditions, a double rainbow is visible A spectacular sight becomes magnified; The rainbowsContinue reading “Phenomenal Beauty”
It’s November and slightly warm but there’s a gentle breeze; the scent of fall dances into my nostrils carrying with it a feeling of freshness, a peaceful transition, death but so tranquil and pleasant.
