For You

This is a collection of poems i've been writing since the start of my hiatus. Some are sloppy, and some i'm incredibly proud of. These take me from heartbreak, suffering and rock bottom; to healing, brushing off and starting out fresh- in no particular order.

I'm finally at a place where i've started to find peace in these experiences, and i've realised that once you become comfortable with that, you become less shy with sharing them out.

And that's why this collection is titled 'For You'; because to whoever comes by this and decides to read it, if you can relate- to whatever extent, it's for you. I hope you find yourself in these words, get lost in these words, and enjoy these words, just as I did.

Thank you.


10. All The Times You Didn't Stay

The first time you didn't stay, 

your wrists betrayed you to the knife.

They caught the light

as metal and skin kissed-

just like you kissed your enemy.

The second time you didn't stay,

the pills drowned in your ocean,

poisoning your every cell.

They dragged you down to the depths

peacefully, into another world,

because you wanted no more of this one.

The third time you didn't stay,

your best friend was rope

chafing your neck.

And i'll never forget how proudly you wore it,

like it were Chanel.

This time,

when you're standing at the height of Niagra Falls

or filling up the barrel with bullets-


Go back to all the you's you gave up on

and tell them to 


not for anyone else but you.

Remind yourself of the last time your skin

felt like a home and

never let go.

Explore until you find the 

light at the end of the tunnel.

Kiss the moon crescents.

Flush away the pills.

Buy an overpriced necklace.

Breathe, even if that's all you're doing.

Hold on, because

what's coming is better than what's gone.
