A new poem.
I grew up with fresh air in my lungs,
and dirt beneath my fingernails,
not unaccustomed to the feeling of a slimy worm in my palm,
I don’t find the city hard to love.
Especially in the evenings as the dust begins to settle,
when the golden light sparkles between the great glass towers
and the murky river of swans.
When the sounds of the city quieten to easily pinpointed origins;
the guffaws of the crew at end of day drinks
shaking off the fatigue in their bones, warming their bellies with beer,
Working girls with backs pinned to street corners for balance
exchange their feet maiming fashions for well earned sneakers
and walk lighter, swinging heels in hand.
The full moon high on a crisp and cloudy night,
when the skaters who seem like a noisy nuisance on busy mornings,
bring the heart to Forrest Chase at 9pm on a Tuesday Night.
Practising and debuting new tricks to gleeful brothers on wheels
the scratching roll on stone tiles, paired beautifully with
roaring joyful youth and triumphant talent.
Warm and welcoming yellow light floods lovingly
across empty streets and the tree-lined sidewalk of
Beaufort Street takes on a liminal quality.
The train station is quiet, save half hourly rumblings,
ready to transport the tired workers and new lovers
back to old places to rest their heads and mend their hearts.
Rolling on and on and on
always leaving just before you arrive,
so you can watch the mice play on the tracks
and pretend not to see school kids kiss under florescent light
the world, all magic and glamour for them tonight
And I, silent observer,
Seeing the beauty in each small moment
In every weary smile of the people who step in time
with each beat of this city’s heart
Unknowing of the rhythm they tap
dancing to a narrative as fascinating
as it is unending.

I need to vent about this to someone, sorry if its annoying. Today I was walking my dog and this boy that passed me in the street came back to talk to me and he introduced himself and went for a kiss on the cheek and I took a step back and was kinda like, I don't want you in my personal space if I don't know you, like, just no(?) and then he asked for my number and I said "no, thank you" and he went away but I started feeling like I was rude and stuff but like, I feel like maybe I shouldn't idk
ummmm no i dont think u were being rude at all?? that was extremely forward of him and tbh im glad u got away lol
this is a strange duaa request, but can y'all make duaa for my baby sister? she’s really wild and engages in constant forms of dangerous play everyday. she’s had at least three near death experiences within the past two weeks by trying to sneak out of the door and run into oncoming traffic. can y'all please make duaa that allah protects her. my entire house is a constant anxious mess and it’s just exhausting.
