I started writing poetry, or writing, because it kinda felt like I had to in order to stay a little bit more sane, as an outlet I guess, to put down even things that I didn’t quite understand. I also like to admire other people’s beauty and how special they are. I love reading and finding poems I can relate to, just like songs. I started writing when I was around 15 and ever since then I carry a journal with me all the time, just in case; it’s become part of my life now and I love it.
Pictures & dust.
There was love but there was also
desperation and youth. So much youth.
There was an enormous desire to give it all
without knowing it could empty me in a second.
It was unknown territory but it felt so warm
and when you held me close
when you traced my face,
I loved you, there’s no doubt… it was love,
despite what anyone, even you, might think.
I haven’t loved again ever since
and I was very sure I was going to soon again
but no. I don’t know anymore, don’t know
anything about it, don’t know where you are
and what you’re doing and I’m not aching to know
who you’re with anymore and I thought that concerned
me when I loved you but even then it didn’t
because you never loved me.
It was like I was carrying a box of candy
when I loved you, I had so much to give
and I wanted to give it all because it was
the first time, and I heard the risks, they
told me about them like I understood a word;
I couldn’t see anything but a pair of
If sex is a natural stage of life and I don’t
have it, does that mean I’m going against nature?
is that too dramatic? well too bad, I’m a bit dramatic.
at this point in my life I’m open to everything,
to learn and listen about everything, to hear it all
so I can make up my own opinions
I love the beliefs that we humans come up with,
like I believe in God but not in church
like I also believe in the universe and the power
of the stars. All that information was given to me
at some point and somewhere in the middle I decided
that’s what I believe in.)
