You die in time to realize somethings aren’t worthwhile.
My inspiration comes from little things. I look at conversations, the way people grasp, reflections of their clothing and personality. You can write about anything and create metaphors from it. When lacking, I usually write for 15 seconds without thinking […]
You look for truth in the beginning, but nothing makes sense until the end.
We live in the moment because not everyone follows the same expectation.
The problem is you trust them. Then they break it and once it’s broken, you never get it back. It’s that simple, but you don’t want to see it like that.
You don’t worry if someone wants to end a relationship because it can end at any moment in time. We don’t worry if someone’s going to open the door so why should it matter if someone wants to leave? If they want to leave, you let them because if you don’t it’s not wanted and why would you want to be in a position where you’re unwanted?
Sadness sometimes becomes you and it isn’t beautiful. But eventually, you move through it. We take different levels, different strides, as we all live separate lives. Appreciate the sadness. Love the sadness, but love it because it lives with you. Demons aren’t attracted to worth. But don’t romanticize sadness. Don’t romanticize depression. Don’t romanticize mental illness. You don’t romanticize pain.
I fell in love with touch. We break up, we leave, we die, but the one thing we no longer have is the ability to touch. We love, we lust, we cry, we hurt, we feel emotion, but can no longer caress our fingers against someone’s skin. We sometimes become lost in people and forget the simplicity of it. We miss their being, their soul, their voice, the conversation, thousands of emotions, but the thing I remember the most: their grasp. We could meet them in another life, a parallel universe, but after this moment, it becomes no longer. Embrace with your arms as you do with your heart. Take moments for yourself and the appreciate the squeeze, the rough, the soft, and the instant you’re in.
I went into the new year loving myself in different ways, in a different possibility. It was then that I understood things I hadn’t. It was then that I understood people I hadn’t. We work in ways where sometimes we don’t align because our intersections lead us elsewhere. We find ourselves in rapids which lead to lightning, in beds that leave us homesick. We lust after the impetuous, in hopelessness, and sometimes in the reactive.
We like things and people who are bad for us and that’s fine. It’s fine because it’s life. It happens. They exist. We exist. We all exist together in this world where nothing seems to make sense. Where everything is nothing but imaginary because it’s what we imagine it to be. Reality exists and it’s there, but life is what you make it. Your actions ask for it. How you exist is how you exist.
We take every new year and give it a theme because we’re scared of how it could be. You change in the moment, not by years. You be to become and becoming is something which frightens people. Lead by example instead of letting the example lead you. Take this new year and find yourself in people who question it because questioning is how you gain from it.
You’re not supposed to be in a relationship because it’s comfortable, it’s supposed to be because they make you a better person.
