It was a Tuesday when I looked into your eyes and betrayed what I have been deliberately trying to hide. I didn’t know that would be our last goodbye. I still didn’t hug you like I would want to. I would never hug you like I would want to, it’s the thing with goodbyes. Hugging […]

I had to go further through life to realise this; I’d run from you to you, till I realize that all I want is you, but I can never have you. You’re the painful pleasure I’d like to always feel, that itch that never leaves, the scar that reminds me how I’ve lived. No matter […]

Light/Yet by Dona

Yet And a million things unsaid. Despite millions of feelings felt, it still does not count it’s yet to be found And we are in an era where feelings are vague And light They can fly with the wind With the chances of zero hopes to capture them. I thought I have already known how […]
