I couldn’t stay. Not with every memory of us littering the streets of the city, playing out like the scenes of a movie. The corner store where we’d buy off-brand Oreos and use them as spoons for the pints and pints of ice cream we’d go through in a weekend. The local coffee shop where… Continue reading Moving
I was supposed to be a ray of sunshine. I wanted to be everything you needed. I wanted to fill you with light so that you may always know which way to go, and that light would always lead you back to me. For so long I tried to give you my light. You brought… Continue reading Rise
The clouds started rolling in one by one. I wasn’t prepared for a storm; the forecast has shown not a cloud in the sky from Miami all the way to New York City.

Today, on my 20th birthday, I wrote down all the tips I'm leaving at 19 with and (hopefully) applying to my life this year as a 20 year old. _______________________________ 20 of… Continue reading 20 tips at 20
“Time heals all wounds.” I used to hate that expression. In a world with mobile ordering and instant messaging, we don’t even have to wait in line for coffee anymore. I want to heal now. I want to see progress now. I deserve it. I didn’t get hurt on purpose. My heart wasn’t standing in… Continue reading let in the light
Roots The roots tried to spread throughout the garden. The vines rose and climbed up the walls, And entangled in the rooftop gutters. The rainwater built, Up and up and up, Drowning her. Spreading far and wide, but never deep, The roots tried to conquer all dry land. The sun couldn’t reach the… Continue reading Roots
I’ve become more conscious of the things I give out to and consume from social media. I’ve tried to take a step back before posting l and ask myself: how is this serving other people? How is it serving me? I am posting because I feel empty or because I feel full? Am I posting… Continue reading Stepping Into Yourself
she was a sunflower planted in the midst of the dark ages. the drought had lasted seasons with not a single seedling able to sprout. they told her it was futile that growth would never come no matter her effort. but she told them look within to find the light you need to flourish.
It is here, on a nearly empty beach on a mysteriously breezy winter’s night, that you realize he is your missing piece. He’s pointing out the planes in the sky, each one with a series of letters and numbers that mean nothing to you, but everything to him, and such everything to you, and he’s… Continue reading blink
I scanned the crowd for a familiar face and found thousands, each belonging to him, and to her, and to you, and to me, yet none of them felt like a home. That’s what I was looking for, it’s what I craved. Not my home, not your home, just a home. Feeling most alone in… Continue reading Bottom of the Ocean

She was a princess on her own, that much he knew. He knew she had the power to rise above everything, even in the worst of chaos, bring a light to the people, and lead them to greatness. He saw the confidence in her eyes, and he craved it. He was like a moth to… Continue reading Moth to a Flame
The air was knocked out, Of my lungs, And the scream I made, Was deafening. The chill of the breeze, And ferocity as it comes, Is not what left me, Trembling. But rather the harsh landing, Of the floor, Suddenly, as I fell from, Above. Neither a scrape nor a bruise, Left, but something more:… Continue reading Fallen
I was your eraser. I helped you forget. You were to be my chaser, Not my first regret. I tried to be your light. I tried to be enough. You played me like a fiddle, Who’s never played with love. I was captivated by your spark. I was the moth to flame. Who… Continue reading deny
You were the ocean, And I was the shore, And with each crashing wave, All I craved was you more. You were the embers, And I was the trees. All I would ever desire, Promised the ending of me. You were the lava, And I in your path, Would do anything to be,… Continue reading Risks
