I’d rather write poems
I can explore my heart’s totems
Add a little mystery to take away the pain
It’s freeing to break fear’s chain

Another tear with connection
I knew it’d come, just my mind’s projection
The second it started, I knew the risk
I let it sting, now I’m ejecting your disc

You’re still missing
Our past in my head is hissing
You’ll come back one day
It’s not you or me to betray

This past week has felt like a year
All these feelings beginning to sear
A wild universal test
A burning in my chest

I’m so ready for an escape
Let me exit this reality, this landscape
Sedona couldn’t have come sooner
The rock, the energy, the people
The stars followed by the lunar

I hope to find you there
I know I’ll come back a newer version of me
Healing all my scars, letting them repair
This growth doesn’t scare
Because I know you are me and we’re rare

Ace

      Aww thank you so much, Riya!!! You’re amazing and have the best energy!!! Appreciate you and your support so much!!

      Of course! Riya, your site is truly amazing! You remind me of myself when I was younger! Your writing is so powerful and honest, and you can write so beautifully about any topic! I especially loved your diaries post you did more recently, but, who am I kidding…all your posts are AWESOME!! I know you turn off your comments and maybe this is my biased opinion 😊, but I think if you opened them, you’d seriously enjoy the community and find more inspiration to write! It’s truly a beautiful thing when someone connects with your piece, it motivates you to do better. And if you get a harsh or mean comment, pay no attention and move on. They have no power over us. I love you, you’re such a bright soul this universe is lucky to have!
