    Rome wasn’t built in a day, a month, a year. It was built with time and sweat. The steaming iron, the sweat dripping down the hands of men who toiled for hours, only armed with tools and a dream. The cuts, nicks, and burns were all just mementos of the journey. While the scars may [...]

    Do you deserve me? Or is this just another ploy? Why am I not good enough for you? I’m the best you’ve ever fucking had. I run this show. I can end it at the flick of my wrist, and all you do is make excuses and cry- you cry. You know I’m soft. You [...]

    Slouch. Thats how I sit in my desk. I slouch. I don’t want the world to see my face sometimes. I can’t really bring myself to sit up straight, and face the teacher. Except when I’m in English. In English, my heart soars, my confidence roars, and I’m a formidable person to wreck. I’m no [...]

  • Anywhere, I stare. Anywhere I dream. Do I want to step off into anywhere? Or stay there? Or go where my heart guides me? Or with you- towards to burning sun, towards all of our hopes and dreams? I’ll go anywhere with you, my blossom- anywhere but here. Here is where our hearts cannot be [...]
