Journey of a growing woman

Amnesia

Right is left

Left is right

Woke is sleep

Sleep is woke

We keep running around in circles

Going in loops

Searching for the holy grail

Searching for the truth

And believing the lies in the process

We have forgotten…

Forgotten who we are

Forgotten our roots

We’ve put down our princely robes

In order to roll in the mud…

Our minds completely wiped clean of who we are

I don’t want to remember

I don’t want to remember you

The ‘you’ that made my whole world spin round and round

To the point where I felt dizzy but yet and still, I did not want it to stop

 

I don’t want to remember your smile

That beautiful smile that was like sunshine on a dark cloudy day

 

I don’t want to remember how good it felt to hold you

To feel the warmth of your body against mine

 

I don’t want to remember your voice

That voice that sounded like King David had been awoken to play his harp once again

 

I don’t want to remember how glorious it felt to look at you

It was like looking at a sculpture carved by Michelangelo

So majestic; So grand

 

I don’t want to remember how much you opened my mind

To all the possibilities that this world has to offer

 

I don’t want to remember

Because when I remember, I smile a little

But then this sharp pain appears in my chest and spreads fast through out my body leaving me weak and helpless

As it takes me back to a time

When you and I felt right

 

A time when both of us were in alignment with the universe

And Orion seemed to be so clear in a city filled with lights

 

Yeah, remembering hurts…

 

 

P.S. To all my amazing readers, I feel like I owe you an explanation for my long absence and all would be explained in a separate post. Thank you for sticking with me. I love you guys so much. And there are better days ahead this year for me and for you. Believe that. Oh, and before I forget, Happy Valentines day. ❤

Moments

Right now
Right here
In this moment
With you holding me so tight
With our legs intertwined
With your lips on mine
I feel at peace
I feel like the sea when it is still and enjoying the sun
I feel like I’ve been born again
Into a world where there is no chaos
A world that only seems to exist in the clouds

Right here
Right now
In this moment
You’ve created paradise
How you did it, I don’t know…
But I do know
That this moment is one that I would love to last forever.

Butterfly

There was a time that you were all I could think of

You were a dream, a wish that came true

A part of me that I never even knew existed

You were all I wanted; all I needed and more

Or so I thought

 

I gave you all of me…

My heart, my spirit, my soul, my body

I loved you, cared for you, prayed for you

I lifted you up, dimmed my light for you

I would have slayed dragons for you

And what did I get in return?

My heart used in a playing field of your lies  and your deceit

 

And yet I stayed

Because my love for you wanted to believe that you would want to be better for me

It wasn’t all you!

I also stayed for selfish reasons

I stayed because I didn’t have the strength to deal with the pain of building myself back up from the rubble that you left of my heart

I was afraid of being alone

 

It was hard

I thought I had let you go but there was something drawing me to you

It was fear

I did not know how to move on from that part of my life

But I did

 

Like a Phoenix, I saw myself rising again

Freed from the chains that was holding me back

This person that I thought would never show up did

This butterfly…free at last!

And never turning back

The cocoon had been filled with pain but that pain moulded me and shaped me

Like a potter with clay

And now I am ready to fly

 

A day would come when you would look for me

You would go to all the corners of the earth

Searching for me

But you wouldn’t find me

Or you just might

But I wouldn’t be yours for the taking

And you would tell stories that would last generations

Of the one that got away!

Cherry

This box of mine

Oh so beautiful

Oh so sweet

 

Full of character

Full of life

Available to the one who sacrifices

 

This cherry of mine

Oh so priceless

Not for sale

 

Not to be taken for granted

Not to be trivialised

Try not to be foolish!

Ceiling Fan

I just want to float

And be free

And feel the evening breeze

 

I just want to lay

On the wooden floors

And stare at the ceiling

 

I just want to be

With nothing more than a sheet

That covers yet reveals

 

I want to feel like Eve

Before the serpent

Before everything went to shit.
