redemption

I smell liquor.
Malt liquor
off your mouth in a grey evening
standing close in a crisp white T-shirt,
staring into my eyes
hazel to teal.
//
I hear Nina Simone
from your playlist.
Your heated whisper “Because you’re mine.”
And you pull me into
those comforting arms of yours,
my only place to abide by.
//

I see temptation and need.
Your hoarse voice
echoing the lifeless walls of my room
“I need you so.”
//
I am on my knees now.
Your honesty disarms me,
your touch makes me reel like
I am a spiritual beast
in search of piety.

I sense fear
In your jagged breathing
with your head on my chest,
your arms encircling my waist.
My unsteady heartbeat not mirroring yours,
you look at me.
Searching for disclosure
my masked emotions deceiving you.

You take me at your pace.
Slowly, savouring every bit.
//

I will worship you
For you showed me the depth of walls of passion,
for you beguile me
and I let go
daring to fly, daring to be Icarus again.

And despite me being torn up,you have a wealth of love to give.
You didn’t run.
You chose to lay your world at my feet.

greetings, mr. radley

As you can already figure out from the title, I have finished reading To Kill A Mockingbird and I just can’t get over Boo Radley and Atticus Finch. Harper Lee is purity. Its perhaps one of the best books if all time and please give it a read if you haven’t, already.

Holidays are finally here and school has ended for now. I can’t believe the year is coming to an end, though. But honestly, this year has been the worst so far.

Christmas is around the corner. Park Street will light up again and it wll look like a thousand bucks worthy as usual. Everyone spending time with their families, fairs, circuses and of course fairy lights. I can’t point out any reason as to why I don’t like December. This month brings everyone together (pretty much) and festivity is always in the air.
As it is vacation time, I plan to read Catcher In The Rye and Kafka On The Shore. These two little books were waiting patiently to be read and now I have the time to do so. These two final weeks of my December will consist of studying, competing God awful projects, and of course weekly tests. I plan to get through these in the utmost cheerful way possible. Because carpe diem, friend.

I hope 2017 won’t let me down or is it the other way around ? I will take my leave now.

Enjoy the 25th of December. Do whatever you feel like doing. Because its not everyday that you get a 24-hour long break. Am I right?

10 THINGS TO DO IN THE UPCOMING YEARS

  1. As Cara Delevingne says, embrace your weirdness and let your flaws take shape.
  2. Dance in a pub till your muscles ache and get drunk. You got to get drunk at least once in your life, alright. Dance to the sick beats and feel your pulse following the rhythm.
  3. Visit the iconic beaches in Perth and feel your feet burning under the sand and your wild hair embody your uniqueness.
  4. Drive through the roads and lush forests of Montesano with your best friend.
  5. Say yes to those abandoned adventures and rule like a supremo.
  6. Pack your bags and go tour the world. See through other people’s daily life, culture and of course cuisine. Its as James Salter says “How can we imagine how our lives should be, without the illumination of the lives of others?” Remember that the world does not look the same from the tinted glass windows of your car. 
  7. Read Emily Dickinson and Neruda. They can save your life.
  8. Indulge in poetry, cinema and art. These can prove to be your life support.
  9. Work smart, not hard.
  10. Trust your intuition. Listen to your heart rather than your brain because know that your left lung is smaller than the right lung just to make room for your heart.
