I’m alright
👇👇👇
the sun is farther now
and the days are getting shorter,
though summer hangs on
like i do to men who are bad for me.
i long for crisp evenings and sweaters
and arms to hold me near.
i wander in between
strength and vulnerability,
somehow pitting them
against each other
rather than seeing them
as companions and
it hurts me, i think,
to try to pick one
or the other.
i am both, you see,
the lion and the lamb;
the sword and the shield.
and i separate these
aspects of myself
as if i have to sacrifice.
but i don’t.
i can stand in strength
with my heart open
and know that even though
love is a terrible risk,
it’s never wasted.
i can take lovers and
survive their little romances
and i’ll stay whole.
i’ll be brave and
try again someday
to look in the face
of loneliness and say “i am enough.”
i can do these things
because i’ve thrived
in spite of all the
losses of innocence.
i can do these things.
and i am alright.

Something light and for the heart. i know i have been away from writing for a bit. i just started my first semester of counseling actual people so that has taken up most of my time. it's been exciting and scary but i'm definitely growing. i'm getting my bearings back and hope to get into a more consistent habit of writing 🙂. °

Nothing is ever powerful than exchanging positive thoughts with the universe around you.

Ieri notte o questa mattina, fate voi ho scritto un testo nuovo, questo è uno stralcio. non so se diventerà mai una canzone ma ci spero, la metrica è un po’ rap, una sorta di ritorno alle origini per quanto riguarda la mia scrittura. anche se non ho mai fatto rap, quando ho cominciato a scrivere la forma di quelle strofe suonava sempre un po’ rap me lo disse un’amica laureata in letteratura, in poesia, una poetessa. mi suonò come offesa al tempo poi capii che la mia scrittura non era fatta per rimanere stampata, andava detta, andava cantata.

☀️altan’s daybook☀️ log 36: operation sandstrom (straight and arrow) *
*
“sand mixed with charred flesh flew in a maelstrom of pure horror around us. my eyes nearly watered shut as fire and smoke burst from my shaking fingers towards the withered fiends before us. keteghoa was a dancer of flame and thunder, effortlessly dispatching one after another, until a few that still wore faces got close enough for her lips to utter their names. it was if the radiance within her was slowly being snuffed with each new flash of memory.
*
*
“there came one who’s face brought me back to the faded vision i’d been given just a few days before. i felt my book start to slip from my trembling grip. our surroundings grew darker as keteghoa sank to her knees, the sound of crying escaping her mask. i scrambled, all but throwing my book as they came, clawing...an unstoppable torrent...my vision became clouded as i felt nails and bone scrape against the scales on my face. just as i thought we’d be buried in the desert, the screeching of fast-falling arrows cleared the air.
*
*
“as the arrow heads struck the withered husks, many exploded into green dusk on impact. i collapsed over keteghoa as another volley came, sending a wave of crumbling bodies, rotten stench, and alchemical primers to wash over us. i could feel her trembling beneath me but could do little else than keep our heads covered with my scarf. it was then i felt something sharp graze the back of my neck. i could hear my own heartbeat slowing, slowing...slowing...until the world began to turn gray and everything went dark.
*
*
“when my eyes opened again i was back at the dig site, the smell of freshly made tea replacing the stench of death in the night air. my eyes took in the image of myrrah’s worried face but her words came through as muffled echos. my foggy vision traveled to a dark-dressed figure i assumed was keteghoa and a fuzzy blue spot that appeared to be capable of speech. before i could strain to make out what i’d later learn was a crack-shot mi’qote mercenary, the light flickered again and i was treated to the very beginning of my three-month long, reoccurring nightmare.

Are you pretending?
"i am fine"
am i really fine?

i am fine
why am i pretending to be fine?

i am fine"
how to be fine?

if you are showing
outside to others that i am fine,
but inside you are not fine then yes you are pretending to be fine,
if you are fine inside out
then you are actually fine,
be real, be original
by not hiding the things or
making it unreal, just show
the actual you to you
because others are just others
they can't be you,
things are going with you
and you have to be fine for your own self
if still, you are pretending then you are self-troubling yourself for others
so better don't do this take care of yourself and get fine.
