FEATURED on WattpadPoetry’s Reading List

Excerpt from Dear Somebody

Dear somebody,

Do you hear me out there?

I’m standing by this lonely hanging tree,

Wondering what in my life, I have held dear.

I see the wind playing with its twisted branches,

The crimson leaves falling from its cloak,

The sigh and the groan of its trunk,

As I think about how my dreams went up in smoke.

The mind is surreal. It’s magnificent.
The thoughts are perplexing; malicious or innocent.

She Can Finally Breathe, She Learned To Be Free

“The words written on these pages are my feelings, my thoughts, my heart and my soul.
This has been my diary since the year of 2.000 when I met my first love, my first sorrow and my first regret.
Each poem represents my brightest but darkest moments. Each poem represents the tears I have shed and the smiles my lips have played. Each poem represents a part of me.
You are about to dive inside my chest and inside my head. Welcome to my world.”

//

it’s so ironic. only when i am most lost does a firefly’s nightcandle alight before my cozy corner in this void. at least when my fingers hold a pen, there’s a semblance of touching it.

//

there’s always so much still left to say, so i tell them to the page; you are welcome to listen.

This poetry and prose collection is for all those who have ever felt repressed, restricted to be themselves by any form of entity or, even, by their own selves. This is for all those who once, twice, or have ever felt broken and the courage it took to admit it and move forward. I hope this collection relates to you in your darkest moments and lead you out to rays of hope.

Here’s a sneak peek:

“I just wanna tear you out, dispose of you. Never see you again. You tear-jerker.” —Untitled 1

“The piano playing and the singing at long last enters a halt, during the prayer I am not thankful. I ask: when? When will I be set free?” —When?
