DREAMY VISIONS IN DAYLIGHT

The sky is the sea of the gods
The clouds, the snow of the angels

The trees are for us to do with as we like
and the sea, an open inquisition.
Still, you are confined within the
walls of yourself,
your desires and your steam.
The ragdolled child beside me
whimpers in reckless precision.
What an attention seeking whore I sigh inwardly as I pick the ragdoll up,
off the ground
and into my arms.
Of course it stops whimpering,
settles in and falls asleep.
Like I said, an attention seeking whore.
I look back, then
up at the sea of skies
and snowy clouds.
The army of birds spread out their wings
as they sun scotches my forehead.
It is at such moments I
think of you,
not as a whole
God no, certainly not,
just that piece of
perfect wrinkled-eye smile
and calming clichés,
I defer to believe.
Maybe you are disarrayed
Allow me to rephrase,
I think of you whenever I
look into the sea of the skies.
The ragdoll is still peacefully asleep,
what a contented little thing.
If only.

I'm a Buffer Girl pour l'Amour

I’ve always known true love exists; always and convincingly known. 

September 23, Age 23

I have been called a lot of things; ‘weird’, ‘real’, ‘cynical’, ‘kind’, ‘beautiful’, ’impatient’, ‘good’, ‘mean’, ‘free’ and ‘quiet’. 
There’s a lot more, but that’d take up a lot of space (bet you get the idea).
And over the years, while some of these things momentarily defined me, might still try to even, I know that is not the case. This is because I have gradually come to the understanding that people will just drop words or phrases of who they think you are. Or better still who they might want you to be, to them_ I don’t know why humans do this, but we do.

No denying some of those words make up the person that I am but in my gradual process of self-awareness and understanding I have learnt so far that I cannot dwell on those adjectives to determine who I am.

Of course, this might come as a string of blah blahs and yapping, but I have had myself, my body and soul for 23 years and I can say boldly that no one has the right to define me or anyone else for that matter.
