How soon we forget the smell of survival,
we are buried again in the darkness.
we find skeletons and skulls digging arabian treasures,
we find children building sand castles,
we carved cracked memories
and dead muggle bones for so long,
that my hands transformed roses in ashes, at the touch
alchemy was in blue blood time the desolate nest of wizards,
and your heart is my home as long as you curl
reciting Oscar Wilde’s poetry on my chest
and sweet zephyrs unfurls the sound of magic dreams
in my soul.
You never left my mind not even when you denied the mere fact of my existence. Thoughts of you flow within— a disarray of emotions, a river of confusions, trying to build a world of delusions? Questions left unanswered, marks engraved on our hearts, stains painted upon our clothes, my home on the verge of decompose?
You never left my heart not even when it was crumbling, not even when I was so lost that all I could do was mumbling; Ever since I met you my heart knew my home was going to be you… To have a house is one thing, but alas, to have a home, a home, what a blessing that is! However, only the lucky few know how it feels to have a home, a home (in you, in you…)
Even if now you’ve lost your way, Don’t, please, don’t lose faith too; It can still be okay, even if now you’re crawling, you’re still young, you’re still tough to do the calling— call upon your angels, call upon your heart, call upon your strength, your shining light, just don’t, don’t abandon the fight! Stand up and find your path, don’t drown in your wrath; Rise, rise up, and (re)build, (re)find your path (re)create yourself…
Heyo, Seattle women’s march was insane. Unfortunately the organizers sort of missed the mark (suggested a silent/quiet march, didn’t really have anything going on at the end of the march), but honestly, the marchers were great. Signs were great, folks were helping each other out, and there were kids everywhere! Nothing warms my heart like politically active children.
Getting home, the buses weren’t running where I needed to go, so me and three other women, none of whom knew each other or me, gathered together to get a lyft to a place close to where we all needed to go. Turns out when we work together, problems get solved. 👌
