The Denim Edit

I know I’ve been gone for awhile. Life got in the way and I had to set my priorities straight. There’s so much I want to do but so little time. Not complaining though! Anyway, I’m excited to keep creating content.

I hope every single one of you had a great weekend!

#Untitled

I love it when I get to see you first thing in the morning.

But sometimes I just want to wake up and see the sunrise.

I love it when you give me hugs and kisses. I love it when you look me in the eyes and smile.

Other times you live in your own world. No hugs, no kisses.

We get along well. We fight over things that don’t matter. But that’s the beauty of it.

Beauty lies in most things.

Beauty lies within balance.

Some journeys go on and they never end.

But sometimes, the inevitable happens.

Why?

[…]

 They say humans are rational creatures but we all know what we really are.

Rage, tears and blame surface; stronger with each heartbeat.

Time passes and then you see it.

The reasons why

this won’t be the end of the world.

It has been awhile since I wrote something. I usually spend quite a bit of time when it comes to creative writing but this one just flows out of me. And I mean words. 🙂

Have a lovely week ahead!

Outer Space*

There was a time when things were either black or white.
But what is it like to be in the grey area?
To survive, we stay inside the bubble created by our Society.
In this inner space, the Rules keep us safe.
To step outside of it is like being in Outer Space.

I wrote this while I was waiting for my lunch to arrive. When you forget to bring reading materials and you feel inspired at that moment, what would you do? I whipped out my phone and let the words flow.

A shadow covering her visage.

I feel her. I hear her.

But she will always be an enigma to me.


R had Sia on repeat for weeks and I was inspired to write something for my friend, N.

N challenged himself to produce a creative piece everyday for a year (definitely not an easy feat!). He also encouraged his friends to contribute and I have to say, I was impressed by the quality of the works.

P.S. This piece was written on September 2, 2015 but I made some changes today so I am posting this again.
