    Those beautifully beautiful memories were so painful
    I was hurting and hurting but the pain wouldn't go away
    My friends, all these people, they're only looking at me
    This isn't how I really am but I keep getting farther away

    / I don't wanna be your
    another random i love you /

    " Most days I am a museum of things I want to forget " - E.E. Scott
    Memories, time and your face. Will I drink the potion of forgetfulness? A life without pain, a life without you, a life without love. Sunday newspapers, laughter emanating from the kitchen. Footfalls, a chaste kiss followed by silly banter.

    Tired eyes, hopeful hearts, frail bones, stubborn minds. We're living, because death is for the weak. Although we think about it often, so close and yet so far away.

    The happiness, a pretence we try to keep up, to shield ourselves or others, is lifting away. I can no longer see your sparkle, it's fading. And they say we're brave (or pathetic). You never know.

    So long, far and beyond, I wish if there's another life, I'm still yours, but it's beautiful and I could see you smile more often. Not act for my sanity and yours.

    Theres a lot I'd like to replay, and they're all about you. Please don't leave? Stay. If a day arrives, where I could no longer see your face, even if it's nothing like I used to know, I'd still like you by my side, in my life.

    I no longer know what to dream, I'm bound to you, a lifeline I've bet over thousand times. I'd like to forget, not you but this life. Not your love, but the one I couldn't give. I'd like to keep your smiles, and erase myself from every moment of us.

    / Feels like I'm
    on a train journey
    to nowhere /

    whispered kisses
    flashing
    headlights

    June
    and her
    touches

    I was lost
    in the wind
    and her laughter

    She told me
    we'll make it
    I held her tight

    June
    and her
    kisses

    She danced
    my heart leapt

    She breathed
    I thrived

    June
    and her
    stories

    She knocks
    on my door
    often in
    winter colds

    Her
    glasses
    are somewhere
    buried in laundry

    She calls me less
    texts me more
    'bout
    him and the summer
    she was his

    June
    and her
    cries

    She sits there
    smiling
    she's looking at me
    but I know
    she's thinking 'bout him

    June
    and her
    kisses

    She tells me
    she loves me
    I hold her tight

    June
    and her
    touches

    I'll love her
    'til I can no more
    breathe

    / silent tragedies /

    I want to write, write till I can think no more. This inexpressible sufferings, dig a grave of past and responsibilities. It's not okay to scream and pull your hair, when it's spinning, it's a clutter, it's a tornado you wish could end you. No it's not you, it's those thoughts. Or is it me?

    I wonder what life is, I'm so tired, I'm so damn tired of hearing about love. Could you please tone it down? I'm trying to breathe, and it has been hard. On me and you. Nothing could save us, not the delusions we crave, not the songs we listen to, not the novels you clutch seamlessly, endlessly. I don't want to lose hope, neither do you.

    Voices, voices everywhere, you shake, pause, no, you want to be alone. Alone with your thoughts and misery. This world isn't for me. You sway, you laugh, you kiss, you cry, it's going to be alright you say, but what if it isn't?

    The future, the oblivion, the masked fears. Pictures and dreams, fairy lights and ice creams. It's okay you say, there'll be a day, when you would look past the old days. Who am I lying to?

    I think I just wanna stay, tonight, tomorrow, forever in your arms .

    / And so it is just like you said it would be
    Life goes easy on me
    Most of the time
    And so it is the shorter story
    No love, no glory
    No hero in her sky /
    - the blower's daughter, Damien Rice


    Neon lights, paper plane daydreams. The laughter's and drunken mistakes. You are in my eyes, I'm in your arms. Another step, another story. You are beautiful in street lights that cast shadows on your face. I'm trouble, like the lost girl you met few winters ago. I'm counting, are you? The numbers on the TV screen, or is it the days we have left together, it's a countdown, we are everlasting, I swear. But in my eyes you are always weary, a step away or two, I'm not close enough and you're too far away.

    People and city streets, you loved the roads that took you far away, in a new world you would say, in a world where we weren't us. In the beginning of every goodbye, there comes a spark, it burns the brightest, and then darkness engulfs of what's left behind. We never trusted goodbyes, so we left hanging on maybe's.

    When you gaze across the street, in the dreams we lived, and the memories we held, do you miss me too? sometimes, when you're not overwhelmed with life and the courage that took every ounce of your light.

    Cars are underneath us now
    The stars are underneath us now
    We walk above the city
    You and I
    - walk above the city, the paper kites

    Read More

    It's the end
    of a new beginning
    the twilight zone
    and your
    mayhem eyes

    If I could
    I would
    drown
    in you

    the whiteness
    surrounding your irises
    and the reds of mine
    are home
    to blue flames
    and violet skies

    you
    far and beyond
    of love and lies
    call me
    to you

    a tragedy
    written in stars

    I am
    the befallen curse
    and you
    a human
    foolish
    and yet so lovely

    I
    make love to you
    in pitch darkness
    and moonless nights

    the truth
    of my existence
    resides within you

    I
    a song left unfinished
    now, strum tales
    to your desperation
    and melancholy

    I am
    gone
    and you are here
    writing eulogies
    to my name /

    Sometimes I'm able to live and forget you
    Sometimes I meet people pretending to be fine
    Starting that day,
    this severe loneliness has become a habit
    How do you do? How are you doing?
    I guess I'm not okay
    You're not here, not even alone
    I'm trapped in an island known as regret//
    - how do you do, chani

    T o,

    How do you wrap your thoughts in pretty words and labelled feelings? You see I'm bad at that. I'm not sure if I'm sad, confused or exhausted of everything around me. I'm using 'everything', 'something' a lot lately. It's hard to be specific when it's all blurry and you're dazzed. Not the ideal way to set your foot in this world.

    Apparently you're supposed to know it all, your future and dreams, 10 years ahead, living in a city you never imagined yourself, being happy, with people and champagne. But what if I tell you, that this champagne dreams aren't for me? I want stability, peace, and genuineness. Not posh cars, and a man who puts a smile, arms around me when people are watching.

    If it's not too much to ask, can I dream of a life faraway from this madness I feel inside, from the insanity crawling deep, and making home out of broken hopes and dreams?

    I thought I had it all, you, myself and a family I could call my own. But here I am picking pieces of things left behind, the me left behind, not in your dreams, but in my memories, you're forever dazzling.

    Yesterday, I promised to be better to myself. I lied. Another year goes by. I watch myself, day after day, ruining, running, away, faraway,
    from dreams and reality.

    Or is it me I'm running from?

    I'd never know
    I'd never know
    Because this is where I end
    my truth & your eyes

    What lead me to you, wasn't destiny, but plethora of heartbeats, shy glances and mixed feelings. Like the tears that flow after daylight streams cutting pain in parts I never dared to wander. Is it okay to confess that I've adored you in silence and tragedies? In the grey skies I once loved , and the blue ones that stayed, without permission and second chances, they remind me of you, persistent in my thoughts and dreams .

    I once wished to become everything I could be, not knowing passion and motivation are rented guests, waiting to get lost in maybe's and midnight sighs. Yesterday I saw a picture of a couple, happily in love and ever afters shined brighter than ever. This could've been us, if my teenage heart and you're gypsy soul could rest and say I love you like we were meant to be.

    Toxicity comes knocking on your door, when you're busy baking chocolate cookies in midday summer afternoon, and the door left ajar has nothing but sweet aroma of baking wafting and recalling memories, or so you think..until verbal abuse, late night arrivals with drunken eyes and surly faces become a ritual you wished was a nightmare.

    Talking about the good old days, is bitter sweet, some choices you wish you hadn't made and regrets that keep piling. When you stand in the balcony, on looking the city lights, you wonder what you could have done differently..but sometimes there's not much you could control or change, not the moment your eyes met his, and your heart fluttered like in fantasies, the laughter you couldn't hold in, the tears you couldn't hold back, the sorrow that pierces you swiftly, the sobs that made you breathless, and in the moment when you loved him for a lifetime, closing your eyes, whispering his name for the last time.
