Love can go full circle sometimes,
& pain can be just a step behind.

We started as friends, then had some fun, & then I showed emotion while intoxicated.

My head & heart were not connected, as my heart was opening but my mind stayed closed.

I was still in too much pain & closed myself off from the world. Why couldn’t someone love me? Was I not good looking enough?

Not charming enough? Not funny enough? Or was it my job title?

The chemistry I had felt was infectious, but she only saw me as a friend.

Then I closed myself off emotionally & spiraled. I’m sorry you caught that end of the stick.

You deserved better, & I always pushed you away when you got close.

From the bottom of my...

The Casualty
———————
All I ever wanted
was to know you..

Your pet peeves & daydreams,
Your scars & sadly, your intoxicated extremes.

But, you ran way too fast
for me. I couldn’t keep up.
“Slow down!” I’d yell.  
Running faster & faster towards my glorious hell.

In love I had fell.
Skinned knees & a dirty dress.
Nonetheless, I gave my best.

Unaccepting that you’ll always choose liquor over me.

Unanswered calls in the dark,
And what’s left of my naive heart, leaves me feeling cheaper than your bottle of Seagrams meaning you must’ve been just a reason or a season.

Somewhere in our hearts,
There's always a thirst for love,
And a hunger for freedom.

WORDS ARE LIKE KNIFE

Never have I imagined that the words FLAME, PASSION and INTIMACY could hurt.

Not until I heard it from your mouth.

It hurts so bad to the point that it brought back the pain from eleven years ago.

Different situations, same pain.

Suddenly, fear creeps in. What do I do? Should I keep trying or should I run?

Now it is over, there’s so much I would like to tell you. Something that I have found is that we try to figure out what love actually is when we have lost it, why? I think we can’t actually tell what love is unless we have lost it.

I want to experience our love once again, just to know how it was to be yours.

“Because even in Darkness there is Change, for both better or worse.”
For even in darkness we feel serenity, peace, and You are your own blissful companion.

“The light hurts when it shines too bright, it burns our sense of sight.
Thus not all light will show us truth.”

“For it is when we close our eyes that we can genuinely see”

that is why in darkness we walk,
so better we can be.

a beautiful girl.

She is everything

I make a bouquet of thorns
Just to prick myself awake.
It's a hard time dreaming,
When reality is at stake.

It's nice to know I matter,
But sad, all the same.
Quenched throats and crumpled cups,
Are serial offenders of my name.

There was a time I was once melancholy,
It seems not to have passed.
I shall sit by with my rose of thorns,
And wait for it to last.

Don't matter. Exist calmly.

WHAT DOES PURPLE TASTES LIKE?
--------------------------

I stalked her from behind as she once again walked anonymously towards the secluded houses in our society. It was strange as no one ever dared to walk in that deserted area except her. There were many different stories famous about that area. Some said that it's roads were haunted after the death of her parents in an accident. Some believed that, negativity in that area forced people to abandon their houses and a few used to say that the houses there were not sturdy enough to withstand natural disasters.
This was the reason why she was so infamous in our school & stayed anti-social, even though she was our class topper. I barely s...

THE INTERVIEW QUESTION: Why do want to become a doctor?

When Doc Tatz asked me this question during my interview when I was applying for medical school, I have already prepared an answer that was simple and sensible. But it did still caught me for a moment of crashing memories and emotions. I paused for a beat before giving my the well-thought reason while thinking about my real reason.

When I was a kid my first dream was to become a teacher partly because it’s one of the limited options I was aware of and partly because I admire my kindergarten teacher (as well as that minitured house at the corner of our classroom). But then a lot of people told me that it was hard to be a teacher because...

To Whom It May Concern,

        My name is Kristofferson Evans and I started sending Lettrs when I was just seventeen years of age. I am now older and wiser. I apologize for my absence but life was calling to me and I could not help but answer.

        In my absence I have loved and been loved. I have cried many tears and felt many a sunny day on my cheek. I met many who passed through my life and many who stayed.

        I hid from the world because I didn't think I had a place in it. Considering the current circumstances I believe we are all hiding.
        I hope you are safe, dear friend.


                                      From my morning coffee,

Dancing With the Light

You remind me of a moth.
Delicate.
Fragile.
Yet your wings are strong and beautiful.

They carry you across continents in search of what you need and I see how it nourishes your soul.

I admire your courage, my freckled friend.

You attack opportunities the way a moth will dance with the light of a naked flame,
At risk of being singed while looking into its brilliance.
And I see that it scares you.

But you are more wise than your years, sweetheart,
And time has taught you that a life free of risks is no life at all.

On Days Like These

There are days,
Days like today,
When I hear,
"It's beautiful outside",
But no matter how hard I look,
I just can't see it.

I mean,
I hear the birds,
But its just a cacophony of noises,

And I see the cloudless sky.
And I know it should excite me,
But it doesn't move me at all.
It has lost all of its colour.
And I feel no joy from its vibrancy.

It's like looking at a Monet,
With paint thinner spilt over all it,
All there is are tones of ugly, muddy, grey.

I know I should feel the warmth,
The warmth of the sunshine,
Upon my naked skin.
And the glow of the wood I am sat upon,
It should fill me to the brim,
With big smiles and exhultations.
It should make...

Hablemos sobre ti
sobre el café de tus ojos,
motivo de mi insomnio.

Hablemos sobre mi,
y sobre lo poco que me importa
parecer un oso panda
mientras me sigas viendo
con los mismos ojos.

Hablemos en plural
Hablemos con la mirada
y besémonos con las caricias

Hablemos de "nosotros"
Sí, en plural y sin espacios
Hablemos del lunar de tu hombro
que me enamora,
y que puedo observar
cada vez que me abrazas.

Hablemos de todos los trenes
que perdimos,
por no perder ni un minuto
de no estar juntos.

Hablemos de los besos
que no nos robamos aquella noche,
y que hoy en día
nos regalamos bajo las sábanas.

Hablemos del presente
y especulemos sobre el futuro

Hablemos,
riamos,
disfrutemos como niños
Y ll...

Every word ever written.

If I could keep in all the letters I have written, of these lines in verse, on each word, would be my intention to kiss her.

Dreams, fugitives and stories in every word carrying to his eyes, distances in which the letters no longer embrace.  

This is how the stories come to an end in an embrace, and kisses every word that were the metaphor, the most beautiful poetry.

I am in stealth mode
But,
I am not a coward.

I am might walk away,
But,
I am not gone forever.

I am wounded
But,
I am not pitiful.

I am re visiting everything
I  am repenting
I am correcting
And i will be back.

Then,
You cannot bear my heat,
You will know my power,
You will know who I am.

I can be a creator,
A destroyer,
A master.

I can be anything i want,
I will have everything
I wish for,
I will be happy.

And I will not have to hide anymore.

Hi everyone.
I am back again after a long break.
Everytime when i am back i try to interact with you all but I don’t get any good response.

To connect , it is important to know each other.
I am giving another try ,
If it goes well, then al good
And if not then i will write letters randomly and lets see when i will have all ears.
