i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

Aka Island - Japan

With a population of only 330 people, Aka Island is one of the most beautiful and secluded places in Japan. The beaches feature healthy coral reefs, with plenty of diverse sea life. Between January and April, Humpback Whales can be spotted not far from shore, as they come to breed, and in summer, turtles come to lay their eggs on the sand. Kerama Deer are a unique species of deer that also live on the island. 

Guest houses rent bicycles to tourists, providing a great way to explore the forest further inland on the island.

.Since my attempt to find penpals for the first time was not successful, I am writing this post again.
Let’s begin. I’m a high school student, this year I’m finishing it. I’m interested in music. I’m a music lover, I can listen to anything if it really pleases me. I have no restrictions in the genres, although there are those songs of which I listen most often.
Literature also attracts me. I’ll be glad if you advise me to read books that impressed you, which are your favourite.
I’m fond of atmospheric photography, but I’m not a photographer myself. I especially like black-and-white photographs , dark photos of nature, streets, buildings. In general, I like photos which are slightly depressive, melancholic, sad, mysterious.
I don’t mind modern art, which can be a little sweet, with a bigger set of bright colors than dark ones. If it really looks cool and doesn’t spoil it, then why not?
I’d like to travel and the country I would like to get to the most is Japan. I love this country and everything connected with it, but it’s not just anime and cosplay.
Moreover, I like creativity. Recently, I began to be keen on such a direction as decadence. I think that this direction is close to me with its gloominess, aestheticism, individualism.
I’d also like to add that I open up more in the process of communication when I discuss something with my interlocutor, express my point of view, share something.
So, I’m finishing my long story.
I’m looking for a penpal because I’d like to meet new people from different countries, expand my horizons. I think it’s interesting and exciting, it makes us feel not alone.

Preferences: People from 16 to 23. I do not care about your gender, orientation and etc.


🌺 As of late, I seem to find beauty in all that I hear, all that I see, all that I touch and all that touches me. It seems almost unfair. Some people can’t find it at all, while I’m simply finding too much.

Ashikaga Park - Japan

Covering 9 hectares, Ashikaga Park showcases a number of flowers, mainly Japanese Wisteria. The wisteria’s in this park come in a variety of colours, including blue, pink, purple and white. One of the parks most popular attractions are the wisteria tunnels, some up to 80m long. Other displays are shaped like pyramids, domes, and arches. 

The parks pride and joy, the Great Miracle Wisteria, sits in the middle of the park, and is lit up at nightfall.
