an echo
of a song replays
and thoughts of you
through my blood
taking me back
to the warmth
of that August night
silent fingers
intertwined with mine
and your kiss
felt timeless
it was
a brief moment
inside the words
of poetry we shared 
that will forever
be etched
inside my soul

You belong here

*Picture courtesy of myself*

I know at times it may feel like the weight of your world and the burdens you carry will suffocate you. The past and darkness seem to creep in every second of the day at times. I know you may feel lost and broken, unworthy and empty. The nights feel so long and the days feel so endless. We get so caught up in what OTHER’S think that we forget what is most important, which is what WE should be thinking of yourselves. Don’t allow yourself to live under the misconception of what others may think of you. What they think of you is none of your concern and a reflection of who they are, not who YOU truly are.

I know how that all feels. I’ve been there a million times more than I’ve ever wanted to be. You are not alone. 

Trust me when I say, you’re worthy, We’re all worthy. You are deserving of great things, despite what has been ingrained into your mind. Be patient and kind to yourself and know that you’re here in this world, at this moment, in this very second of time for a reason. 

We are truly only a moment in this space, we blink and time seems to move at a speed we just can’t comprehend. Love yourself, put yourself first and I promise the rest will fall into place. Sending you all strength, love, and happiness. 

Bloom into the beautiful flower that you are meant to be!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year and welcome 2023! 

I know so many of us are ready to start a new year and leave the old one behind. First, as much as I too am ready, we must also remember all the good that happened in 2023. I know for me personally not everything in 2022 was terrible. Although, I wanted to achieve more (and will in 2023) I made some good friends and became even closer to the ones I already had. Especially, my best friend. 

Every single experience that you have in life will eventually get you where you need to be. Every success, loss, every mistake. Don’t be afraid to get lost and take chances and keep kicking life’s ass each and every day!

Repeat after me
I am beautiful
I am strong
I am confident
I am worthy
I am loved
I will not settle
I will not give up
I will not back down

I know so many are struggling right now and I’m here to tell you that things will get better. There is always light within the darkness (as Christopher tells me) I’m here for you, you’re never alone with me. Happy New Year to each and every one of you. May this be the best year yet!

Packing away memories

So, as I’m putting away all the Christmas decor today, I’m thinking of you. Thinking of all the memories we made and the love we shared. I wish I could have had you longer in life, but it wasn’t meant to be. I’m sorry you couldn’t stay.

This is the last thing you gave me before you left and it is still one of my favorite things, ever. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since you left because to me it feels like it’s been a lifetime. I hate how things feel so different now without you; nothing will ever be the same. 

Until we met again, I’ll visit you in my dreams and keep you alive in the memories I carry with me. 

though your body
is now free
and your soul
is at rest
I miss you 
and I wish
you were here

Hues of blue

her words
beautiful like a rose
in shades of pink
stroke the pages
of his heart
oh so slowly
they touch a part
of him
he keeps hidden
behind a mask
her words
sweet like a dream
in hues of blue
they feel alive
inside his soul
like a summers breeze
upon the darkness
of the night
her words
all his layers
and still choosing
to love him
of what the world says
