Perfectly Incomplete

Perfectly Incomplete

I look at meAnd I couldn’t imagine myselfAs anyone else. I admire beauty,I’m attracted to beauty.But one thing I could Never be,Is anyone else. I May not be perfect, But my features werePerfectly placed. We look up at our faces,But do we ever look down…At our fingertips,Or the birthmark that’s weirdlyshaped but creates natural art. [...]

Guilty

When you ask,I say I’m okay.If I show anything less, You cast your fears onto meYour worries about me.  A mirror will never trust me, Why? Because it sees me everyday. If it could speak, It would question why, Every time I go to itI Fix my hair,Do my makeup, Brush my teeth,And smile. The night [...]

A letter From Me To Me

A letter From Me To Me

I fear you will see meThe way I see myself.Satisfaction is pleasant, But disappointment is inevitable. I want more but then, I always give myself less.I give more but receive less, I’m afraid I’m now empty handedWith nothing more to give,Even to myself. One day I’ll like to meet you,But would I love you forever?Satisfaction [...]

A Cover and It’s Pages

They say don’t judge a bookBy its cover. But without it,How do we know whose Story it is? Our cover is our shield,And without it.We are just pages,Delicate —and weak. Preserve your cover, One tear and you’re fragile.  An author gets to createWhat their cover looks like. Let those who are invested,Open your book.Don’t explain it,No one likes a spoiled [...]

New Year. New Me?

New Year. New Me?

How many times have you said that?Each year you want to change.Look outside at the trees,You see their leaves?Gone.Now look at the grassDo you see flowers?Gone. In fall the trees are adored,By winter they are forgotten.Why?Because they become naked and exposed.They learn and take what’s neededFrom the leaves and lose them. During this time they [...]

One Wish

One Wish

As I come to you,How many wishes can I make? —No one has ever asked me. Everyday I see males and femalesCome to me with a pennyBut wish for the worldEach time they throw in a penny Their wishes so heavy,It instantly sinks.If they would listen, I would tell them to wait before it falls.I would say,Think about the [...]

Worry met disappointment,And introduced me to patience.The wait was long butI checked my heart,It was still beating. I woke up,Looked outside,Everything looked the sameBut I can change that. Today I woke up on the rightSide instead of the left. Showered with cold waterInstead of hot.Did I like it?NoWould I do it again?Yes Check my heart,that’s [...]
