quiet-the-mind

we have been loving roses till the thorns made us bleed. they say beautiful things are too often broken and baby the hurt came since we first said hello. tears run more when the weather changes faster than your feelings. i miss you more by the ocean. when the waves whisper to me i am not alone but i feel so. the world is quiet and my mind loud. the sun is falling down and i’m falling apart. the dreams you see are new ways of me telling i love you one more time, i miss you one more time, i want you one more time. i guess we are so good of making apologies out of promises. we are so good of making hate out of love. we are so good at destroying each other. i miss you more by the ocean. the waves whisper ‘you’ll get better’

Always set aside time in your day to practice mindfulness. Stop and smell the roses. Reflect on your experiences. Discover. Learn. Grow.
The highly sensitive [introverted] tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive. They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty. They feel exceptionally strong emotions–sometimes acute bouts of joy, but also sorrow, melancholy, and fear. Highly sensitive people also process information about their environments–both physical and emotional–unusually deeply. They tend to notice subtleties that others miss–another person’s shift in mood, say, or a lightbulb burning a touch too brightly.
