you have always embraced
me like a second skin.
even though your caresses
bring me tears and sorrow.
you have always been there
like a shadow.
I love you, sadness.

Believe you are
beautiful.
Even your dusky
Skin.
Even your battle
Scars.
Even your sensuous
Smile.
Even your lovely
Tyres.
Because you are
Not ordinary
You are extraordinary.

Live your fears.
Eat them alive.
Don’t let them
feed on you
and savour you
whole.
Don’t let them
take away all
your substance
and make you
hollow.
        – Jaserah Syed

This is something mediocre but still.

She is the bullet
you will willingly
take across your
chest and live forever
in love.

I see you, sitting on the branch outside my window.
We see eye to eye.
Your mouth resembles a smirk with evil glint in your eyes.
You jump to my room straightening your shoulders and hover over me.
You intimidate me with your presence and open your arms like every other day.
My blood runs cold, chills rise from my spine.
Your dirty, calloused hands engulf me.

But today my sobs aren’t of despair.
I’ll stab you once and for all.
For today, Fear,
I’ll not let you win.

Much love ❤

I worshipped love.
Never knew you
were an atheist.

She was benignant.
Until she realised the
world works on unfaithful,
sly, treacherous and
cruel ways.
