In modern society, we say that people cannot make us feel a particular way, that it is just our perspective that creates that emotional experience. And this is said all in good faith, as a refusal to take ownership of our feelings is a denial of our own power. By giving others words power over … Continue reading Boundaries, cultural appropriation, expectation and suffering.
Only when we are empty do we become full... the breath that is held, is lost. When we are left breathless, no sooner are we aware than the breath returns to us in full. And just like that, that which we let go of hath returned. Wholeness and emptiness are one and of the same. … Continue reading Emptiness.
We sail the seas like our boats are built to withstand, the tidal energy of poseidon's hand, the body of water stretching from land to land, and yet when the seas swell and the storms rage, on the other side lies stillness and awe, these seas are rough; known to sink, the boats of many … Continue reading Sailors brave, of past and present.
Doors close and others open; sometimes we need to step away, so that we can take steps in the right direction. Life is a gamble, and you never may know what the future holds, but just know that the future only arrives for those who can let go of the past, for the past and … Continue reading Acceptance.
I feel so hurt that I cannot cry; my eyes are a desert, and I'm lost wondering alone. You are a concealed blade that comes to play during the most intimate embrace. You are violent and selfish, and I am dumb and enamoured. I hate that I love you, and I hate you, too. I … Continue reading Dry eyes.

We perceive situations of transgression, error, fault and betrayal as being consciously orchestrated against little old us, as if it … Continue reading Forgive like you wish to be forgiven.
I feel so hurt, betrayed, and uncertain. I hate feeling like this, I hate feeling like I can't rely on someone, and I hate feeling disrespected and unappreciated. The feeling that one wrong move is the end of your relationship is a torturous feeling. One error, one misstep, one... difference, and then you are in … Continue reading Anxious feelings.
Sensory sensations arising in my conscious awareness, reverberating throughout my field of awareness, infusing with my psychophysiology. All consuming, immersive and overwhelming, this is better than its opposite - thought, thinking, words and grammatical forms. Dip my toes in your waters, my feet pressed on your sands; my lips drinking from your vanilla chai soul. … Continue reading Sensory sensations.
I feel as if I am floating on clouds, high above civilisation in my own little world. The way she carrasses me heals this weary heart, and when she speaks her soul spills over mine, like pen to page, like the dawn of a new day - of a new life. The rational mind does … Continue reading My ode to you, my dear.
Sometimes it feels like I am the only one who has suffered, although I know this to be false it feels as if it were so. Everyone with their pre-packaged interiorly designed lives with sparkly loving childhoods, it feels so... lonely. Maybe it's because those who suffer like I have do not often overcome circumstance, … Continue reading Invisible damage.
