Summer BlossomsThese fresh summer blossoms could not-
Hide the stench of rot.
Natures reclaim soldiers are dead
Their limitations we forgot.
Their walls could not hold
The pressure and the heat.
They had no attempt in fight,
Just bowed to their defeat.
Just for our progress
We have reached our extinction.
And now to join our comrade -
To reach our final function -
- Our final function.
A True FaceA True Face
The suit was tailored to fit like a glove but it felt wrong. His silver grey blazer hugged his shoulders too tight in his opinion, although his movements were unrestricted by the fabric. His polished and pointed black shoes were too stiff, and they pinched him with each step. He was uncomfortable in this attire, but it was required of him to live up to the standards of those small-minded people with their bottomless pockets.
Stretching his neck and fastening his tie, he steps out of the master bedroom and makes his way to the main room. Upon reaching the stairs, the chatter of the crowd ceased and all eyes were upon him,
“Welcome everyone! Please, don’t stop your conversations on my account!”
A small, forced laugh ripples through the crowd as he skipped down the marble, fan-tail stairs with the ancient oak banisters that were admired by so many guests, but were merely wood to him.

Most say knowing you are going to die at a certain upcoming point is the scariest thing you can experience. I disagree. Not knowing what to do with your time is scarier.
I went in for a standard check-up and within the week I was told I had less than a year to live.
My first three weeks after diagnosis were spent alone in my apartment in a hysterical delirium. I considered suicide almost daily. Knowing when you will die is the most unnatural thinking the mind can experience. It mutilates every grain of thought.
Our instinctual urge to survive begins to fight back; but without any means to do so. Eventually, you begin to tear yourself apart.
I knew I would be left as a hollow shell if I carried on like this. So I decided to distract myself. I started writing a book on my life so far; on everything and everyone who had made an impact on my life, something for my loved ones to read and know I cared. I spent six months writing. Every morning I would wake and get out of bed when my
TimeWe don’t like the idea of time passing,
It’s hardwired into our brain to fight against it.
We squeeze all we can from life,
Every – Last – Little – Bit.
But everything is a reminder
Our Days are set; No time to play.
And when we lie in bed at night
We hear our Heart pulsate time away.
And as we walk
Our footsteps tick for time
It marks nothing of significance;
It marks the end of Mine.
We can ignore this force
Pretend it isn’t real.
But it dwells within Us.
It’s in the skin we feel.
We cannot surpass time.
We cannot escape its fire.
So we shall let it encircle us
Let the Tick- Fuel our Desire
Just UsI can tell she thinks I don’t care anymore
I can’t help but feel it when we talk
Whether or not it be true
I refuse to let this Relationship just walk
It’s more complicated than anyone could possibly understand
But some of the best things in life are
And I know we would have it all back
If we could just have an hour
But instead we have lives
We have what we need to do
But is it all worth it
If it means staying away from you?
You can never deny that there is still something there
You can’t deny you still feel it
I can see it in your smile
And I how I wish we could be “it”
But I’m never giving up on you
I’ll have you back one day
No matter the time or place
I’m determined to find a way
We had something too amazing
To just let it all blow away
So we’ll find a method
And in the Spanish midnight air
Keep in Touch!
