evening snake

Where is my home? Outside, the evening snake is lit, on right it’s filled with patches of white, on left it’s a strawberry jam of red. Wait, perhaps, it’s not a snake, it is but, a curved paved skin of earth, where tiny, tiny, earthlings who think they own the world, are scrambling inside their […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

Fading Photograph

i stumbled upon my five-year-old smile pasted on a fading photograph. it was just me and my sister. she was crying. i was clapping. (mean me?). my small mouth was wide open, wide enough to show the three blank, toothless-gaps. while my sister, a year younger, was red in her wailing feat. looking at the once […]

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. […]

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. ❤ I wanna […]

Between My Bleeding Lines’ Readers: Mah Lima

Note to Self There’s no point in looking outside for things you should have inside. It will only bring you harm. Don’t put your happiness in a stranger’s hand. 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 […]
