It’s only

Been days

But it feels

Too long

To be away.

The words not flowing through my mind.

Wasn’t something new but felt like a punishment.

Couldn’t just sit down and write it out

Just sat and stared as if the words would magically appear.

But unlike a fairytale nothing I wished for came true.

The end result still the same

No words on paper or on the screen.

Just closing the phone and laptop and hoping tomorrow brings more joy.

And some words that will light up this place again.

No need

To escape

To another

Place

As my reality

Feels so great.

The days are cold

And afternoons so warm.

That I get lose in doing so many great things

That time is going by so fast and life seems so full of opportunities.

That there is nothing left to complain about.

As everything once negative is now a positive moment.

She was

Fowc with Fandango-Vehement


So passionate about her work

That if you asked her about it.

You were in for a treat

She strongly believed that her way of thinking.

Was the only way to go

And as she tried to cram all her idea into your head.

You would have to politely decline her offer for your mind.

Couldn’t take all her craziness in one session.

But, you won’t be coming back to hear more either.

For her forceful ways were not just in her words but her hand gesture too.

And being accidentally slapped in the arm one or two times is enough for me.

To walk away and accept she won’t change and there will be more victims.

It’s getting

Late and yet I still

I’m here in the dark.

Trying to find my way out

Maybe I shouldn’t have stayed so late.

I stumbled and I hold on the things

Before I could finally see the light and make my way back to bed.

And as I sleep and drift off into the darkness again.

Know this time will be different.
