Unusual (day 29)

I used to think I wanted to be uncommon.

I wanted to live at unusual angles,

I walked on unusual roads and

said strange things in strange places to strange people.


I used to think I wanted to be uncommon

but that was before you were

a giant and a whole new color spectrum and made of stardust,


before a story made of we

lost its meaning,

broke into just two letters

made of soft quiet pencil strokes

written as I trembled in the center of a crowd.


I thought it was an unusual ending

so I cracked my world

and I spent my time

and I bled my tears

and I lost my way


I thought it was an unusual ending

but really it was just another clichéd story.


And if now, a lightyear later

this is an unusual beginning

I might just throw myself to the ground,

I want it to be

so so so normal.

...Until You. Until YOU!

This Love



I was but a lost soul,
Who had no hope left,
Let alone any dreams.
Nor even the will to live on...
...Until You.
I gave up on love,
More so on, BEING loved.
For I was made to feel so
Unworthy and unlovable...
...Until You.
I lacked courage,
Was devoid of confidence,
And filled with self-loathing,
Till it literally, almost killed me...
...Until You.
I lived always depressed,
And lived suppressed.
A prisoner doing life,
With no way to escape...
...Until You.
Until You,
I was full of empty.
I was oh so afraid
And cried much too many
Tears of emotional brokenness.
Until You,
Were suddenly there
In front of my eyes,
Eyes that had longed 
to see you again.
Until You,
I didn't believe in me-
Or in fairy tales
And 'happily ever afters'
Or dreams coming true.
Until You,
Told me, you loved me,
My heart never knew such joy,
Never knew such elation,
And never knew such love!
Until You,
-The best part of my past,
Became the best part of my present,
Now, the best part of my future.
And even back then, I never loved...
...Until You.
Until YOU!
