"Sometimes I’m so overwhelmed by the impact of my choices that I can’t choose anything at all because I’m afraid today will be the day that I make the choice that changes everything."

you have a home in me.
underneath the skin that wears so thin,
between the white of smooth ribs
lies a heart that beats—
it beats for you.
ticks and tocks that, unlike a monotonous clock,
dance about wildly and wonderfully 
to carry the fervor flowing in these veins like
a roadmap filled with paths that lead to you.
you are the journey, but no, 
you are also the destination.

# red thread


The red thread of fate is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend and is also used in Japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.

The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.

"I’m in love with people’s hands and the way they clench their fists and the way their fingertips lightly press down onto piano keys or thighs. Calloused fingers or dainty fingers. Hands writing poems or memos or parking tickets. Hands writing futures. To me, every crease on the palm is a love line."

Your touch is sea salt
against my skin,
pure and raw;
I’d strain the ocean to feel you,
I’d strain the ocean,
to feel.

To define is to limit.
To force emotions and feelings,
people and places,
into silhouettes of
letters and words
when they were never meant to
fit within such small confines.
How can you expect a cage
to encompass the world?
You can’t.

"You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again."

It hasn’t been this gloomy in quite some time and I’m reveling in the scent of petrichor, in the wonderfully ashy-colored clouds drooping awfully low, in the serenity that a day like this brings.
As I stare at the electricity lines and dare to imagine just how far they stretch, it starts to sprinkle once more. Raindrops fall quickly and lightly, kissing the surface of the ground with dewy mouths on iridescent faces. It’s beautiful. I’m so in love with this moment.
The gentle pitter patter calms and ceases, and the moment is gone just as quickly as it arrived.
