virtuoso, oh no, i am no ace of (many) no's, i am not numb (yet) against spades of (vicious) no's, but I've my shield of self-belief,  just enough to help me swallow (sharp) eyes menacing, (brute) words piercing, (twisted) life unveiling, on my own. 03.18.2019 ©2019 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer.

bone and brain

Unbreakable bone walled with collagen and calcium, ounce for ounce is stronger than a bar of steel. Soft yet complex brain tangled with circuits of neurons and nerves, byte per byte is better than a super computer. Your anatomy is divine. You're not a super hero. You're a super human. — 03.14.2018 ©2018 Rosemawrites@A Reading… Continue reading bone and brain

I m p r i n t

You carry a bloodline that has survived years of hunger and hate, a mutating gene that has conquered thousands of decaying dates, the sturdy roots of forefathers who had lived for your beginning, the dauntless bones and bricks of humans who valued breathing. Survivor is long imprinted in your veins. You are born to break limiting… Continue reading I m p r i n t

for your information

kick me out of your life yes, you can. kick me out of my own love, oh, you just can't. i am locked, chained, tethered, inside the cave of my self-sufficient heart. it'll beat with a thump, with a thump, with you or without. — 11.07.2017 ©2017 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer. All Rights Reserved.

when rain reigns

while i try to rein on my stubborn and elusive sense of worth, the rain reigns against the sun rays with its freed droplets of crystals kissing the waiting, parched earth. may i find the purpose of my birth, with the petrichor's coming mirth. — 09.14.2017 ©2017 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer. All Rights Reserved.

Buried Deep

her feet buried in a deep, deep soil of grief and self-doubt. a larva cocooned so long, afraid to break free, to break out. until the wind of change made her shell dance, wiggle, wriggle, jiggle, wobble, shake, bounce. life's gonna hurt but it's meant to be felt. come out now, free yourself, be brave. — P.S.… Continue reading Buried Deep

Last Echo

she got the final note on her last day on earth. she went out with a book on hand and let the last echo of her heart lead her between the mountain, the sky where her song is heard, where her name is whispered. — P.S. Written with India Arie's India Song playing. ❤ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGY-3M-Bp24 I… Continue reading Last Echo

No matter how long you’ve been with someone, unless you’re both open to it, you never really know them. And even when they are, you still… Continue reading Between My Bleeding Lines’ Readers: Mah Lima

Bus and Break

the rushing wind kisses my cheeks as i keep the bus' window open. we are zigzagging and zooming because 6 in the morning is synonymous to a free-flowing highway. no traffic. no accidents (yet). as my eyes stare at the birthing of yet another sun, my ears is swimming on a familiar tune. a tune… Continue reading Bus and Break
