“hell is empty, all the devils are here.”
—william shakespeare (tempest)
there’s a vacancy in me
an empty slot in a puzzle
i’ve tried filling it in
with what i mistook as love
but somehow it always ran out
there’s a hole in me
made of shadows and bitterness
it’s gnawing at my existence
sometimes i catch a glimpse of
a universe where all was right
this is not that universe.
there’s an emptiness in me
begging to grow, and grow, and grow
and once i’m all eaten up inside
i’ll be a husk of a living being
numb, unfeeling, cold
will you still love me enough to save me then?
i really like this one. i hope you do too.
so. i went for a short trip to vietnam over last weekend till yesterday. i’m thinking i might do a post on that, together with the numerous photos my fam and i took (we took A LOT).
idk when i’ll get to write and post it though, because it’s almost christmas (YEEEES) aka the busiest time of the year for me and everybody else.
also!! it’ll mean a lot to me if you’d check out my profile on mytrendingstories.com !!
HAVE A GREAT DAY x
she wore the sun in her smile
and the stars on her skin
they wove galaxies on her skin
so delicate, so beautiful
i think she must have more
stardust in her
than most of us do
THANKSGIVING BREAK. NEXT WEEK.
i crane my neck and tiptoe, hoping to see you. a steady stream of people pool out of the bus and onto the gravel lane. but none of them are you. i sigh despondently as the bus slowly creaks away.
my senses heighten when another screeches to a halt at the bus stop. eyes roving over the exit, i search for you. and…there you are. we spot each other almost at the same time. wide grins break across both our faces, and i find myself pushing past people and running to you.
you drop your bag and you’re scooping me up into a hug. i’m tearing up now.
“i’ve missed you,” i say. your eyes are sparkling with joy and unshed tears.
“i love you,” you mumble, burying your face in my shoulder.
we’re locked in an embrace, enclosed in our own little bubble. and for that one moment, all was right in the world.
good news, my writer’s block is gone and i have tons of things i want to write. bad news, i don’t know if i can find the time to write them.
but. it’s been less than 3 weeks since i last posted, and i think that isn’t too bad ??? =)
and i’m holding myself together
with good sense and ego
pride is the glue i use
to hold together my shattered pieces
and i can finally breathe
i let myself go and
fall into the blissful oblivion
of sleep and shadows
hey, guys. i hate not being to write and blog stuff. i’m really tired. can christmas come soon, please? thanks for staying with me. y’all are the best.
HAVE A GOOD DAY x
whew, it has been one heck of a summer.
on one hand, i’m just really pumped to start studying again and having a proper schedule (this is always me at the end of every summer tbh). unfortunately, this excitement never lasts long. i give it two weeks this time, tops.
on the other hand, i’m definitely going to miss my books. and my shows. and my writing. and my art. and just going out (who am i kidding, i’m mostly too lazy to go out anyway). and OH yes, sleeping in.
but honestly, i think i’m just looking forward to writing notes and making them pretty (plus super cool anatomical drawings for bio, let’s go!!).
i actually really want to do well this year, so i’m going to try super hard to not be (too) distracted by stuff. which might mean less posts on here (i’m so typical ugh sorry, guys).
but i promise i won’t neglect all of this. even if my posts might be a lot less frequent than they are now.
anyways, i hope y’all enjoyed your summer breaks!! mine was mostly unproductive, but it wasn’t bad:)) but press on, you guys!! christmas is practically round the corner!! i can feel the cold…the snow…oh, jokes. we don’t have winter here. nor fall. which sucks, because i think those are the prettiest seasons.
i need to stop rambling. and sidetracking. i do that a lot.
okay…well, so. enjoy the last of summer, y’all!!
HAVE A GOOD DAY x
the harsh, grating sound of wheels against stony ground drew attention to a grand-ish sort of carriage, not extraordinarily so, but decorated enough to show its owners’ wealth. a pair of birds looked up from their pecking, before hopping away hurriedly as it trundled past near them.
there was a girl in the carriage. her arm rested against the window sill, pushing past embroidered curtains. she gazed longingly out at the wild fields passing by them bathed in warm, friendly sunlight.
she envied the birds their freedom. they got to fly free, unopposed in clear skies while she, well, was on her way to her possible betrothal. she had never even met the man before, she thought bitterly. and she was going to marry him.
“come out of the sun, dear. you’ll ruin your complexion,” her mother fussed, tugging at her arm. she relented, if a little hesitantly, and leant back against her seat.
she allowed herself one last glance outside, as her mother pulled the curtains shut.
hellooooo, guys!! i’m not actually sure what inspired this, but i did think a bit of alice in alice in wonderland. ya know, the first movie? the non-cartoon one? remember her at the beginning? yeah.
anyways, i don’t have much to say today so:
HAVE A GREAT DAY x
i have seen your words
i have heard your stories
and i wonder how
you could bear to
leave your vivid imaginations
those colorful worlds you dream up
in exchange for this drab one
this dull place we call reality
hey, friends!! okay, remember when i said i was obsessed with sparklers? i still am. so here’s a nice picture of one. because sparklers mean celebration, right? which means i probably have some good news (which i do). yay!
OKAY. so. i’m going to be a contributor on mytrendingstories.com !! so i’ll be posting on there, as well as here. this is kinda like a big thing for me, because i never thought my little blog would receive any recognition of any sort, so i’m actually really happy.
anyways, authors get their own profile page for their articles and things, you can find me here. it would really mean A LOT to me if you would show me some support there (maybe give me a follow? hehe)
well then. i was going to post something this week when i (coincidentally) received the email from the my trending stories admin, so i decided to combine my planned post and my happy news announcement post together.
I LOVE YOU GUYS 🙂
