don’t hide your truth
let it speak true
let it free you

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i see you

told you we’re the chosen
i’ll be your sun
since your heart is frozen

you’re both of us
like our souls were woven
i can be your solace
you can be beholden

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i’m golden

Spill Ink

IMG_2481

and i found beauty in the dark
while riding the silence
and i did spill ink
watched it blend with the darkness
saw eye to eye with the storm
as the thunder raged on

walking with nightmares
in the daytime
and even when sun comes
it’s still nighttime
saw the corpse of my innocence
at the edge of my vision
yes, my sanity
needs some revision

Blindspot | A Poem

Blindspot (n)

– an area or subject in which a person lacks understanding or impartiality.

This is inspired by and dedicated to every girl who doesn’t see or understand the scale of her own beauty. Send it to them as a reminder.

You were always shy
Hiding under false lashes
You with your bold lips
Sharp tongue
And sharp cat eye
You seem to have
A blindspot
For your beauty inside
And how it translates
To that dimpled smile

Don’t run from your reflection
Stay a while
By the riverside
You with your flower crown
Blending with the wonders
Like you were drawn on a canvas

She (Was So Beautiful)

She is whoever you want her to be as long as she is beauty to your eyes. Plainly, she is woman.

*****

Beautiful

And she was so
                                 beautiful.
It might have been a curse
For she was the moon
She bought the tide
And she was the breeze
She fashioned breathing

And she was the ocean
She made the sky blue
She gave the earth hues
She makes the day new
For she keeps the night true
