i remember writing before about how your body
changes so much over the course of seven years.
to add to that, some of my favourite things
are no longer my favourite things.
i once enjoyed the aroma and flavour of coffee,
and now it has become nothing but aching
to pour into my system.
i loved the smell of frying bacon and peppers,
and now the very thought and memory of it
turns my stomach.
even favoured lotions are no longer permitted on my skin,
lest i break out.
it, again, reminds me how much i change.
my body may still crave you,
longing to be on your lap once more,
but that too
may change over time.
a thought both comforting, and troubling.
can you tell i really like clustered shots of trees?
why does this world make it so hard
for some people to just be happy?
you could do everything within your power,
set goals, make forward movements,
and somehow, something drags you
back to the pit you JUST crawled out of.
you become accustomed to the years
of continuous grief and trauma.
it's like a force in the world
is constantly knocking you off of a cliff.
people will say, "it is life teaching you lessons,
to make you stronger."
but what i need is not to be strong, not anymore,
not after all these years of struggle.
i need to be safe.
i deserve to be happy, loved, and safe.
Let my heart speak
Than my tongue,
Because our shadows
Know more truth
Even in darkest of times.

Hello everyone & WELCOME to my new page! I’m so excited to have a place to share my thoughts and connect with all of you. My name is Austin and I am the man behind the curtain. I am a poet, friend, artist, dancer, queer person, taste tester, explorer, the list goes on. Why limit ourselves when the world is full of experience?? Kick off your shoes, stay for a while, and let me know what you think 🖤
some people in this universe exist as light in human form
i don’t know how else to explain it
their souls shine from within
like they’ve swallowed the light of a thousand suns
even though they’ve known pain and heartbreak and sadness
they wear their heart on their sleeves
and a crown of kindness on their heads
they’re explorers guided by a moral compass
fuelled with compassion and respect for the earth they walk on
sometimes when they talk, you find yourself lost in the depths of their mind and their words
these people have a way of seeing you
looking past your exterior and seeing through to your soul
in some ways, understanding you better than you understand yourself
if you find a soul like this, never let them go
they were put in your life for a reason
let their light guide you when you’re lost in the dark
let them be your beacon of hope
let them be proof that there’s good in the world
and know how lucky you are
to have found a living, breathing light

what we have is special
you cannot deny it
you cannot tell me that i will find it in somebody else
because we both know that’s not true
when i’m in your arms and our bodies fit together like i was made just for you
when i catch that childlike softness in you eyes and know it’s reflected in mine
when i’d rather waste a day with you than do anything with anyone else
when i’m drunk on laughter and can’t breathe because you’ve found my ticklish spots
when our first date felt like the first day of my life
when we sat at the top of that hill and watched the world below us
we felt like we were on top of the world
and i was
because you were by my side
this is goddamn rare
and i want you to realise that now
not in a few years time when we’re haunted by the ghosts of regret and what-ifs
why shut a book at the second chapter
when the third or fourth or the rest of the goddamn book could hold all the answers?
or the fairytale ending

you’re different to anyone i’ve ever met before
and that’s why i can’t let you go
don’t you understand that?
i’ve never felt so comfortable and at home around another person before
i’ve never looked at someone and felt like they saw me
like they saw through to my soul
my soul that hasn’t stopped shining since the day we met
you made flowers blossom through the cracks of my once broken heart
you watered them with your kindness
your belief in me
your belief in us
so don’t let them die
because they’re wilting without you
I may have told you the dreams we left behind were never needed just like the wishes dreamt.
I may have said stars we wished upon were never listening. And that I wanted more.
I may have never believed you, but somehow you would find time to walk in the clouds to just to sleep in our dreams. And you did it for me.
I may have given you tears but not as many as you gifted me. Your diamonds may fallen yesterday and I may take more tomorrow.
I may have done what I’ve done, but nothing could take away just how precious you were. Yes, you were enough.

Another round of blasphemous rumors and false promises. Running around pulsating in my veins with all the wrong things at the right time.
Words are drawn from the deepest wells that only the empty can reach. They thirst harder than others of their kind. I for one, am one.
The bottom is where their comfort lies. It is my source of passion in the depth of if all. Empty and complete.
ever since i was a kid, i’ve loved putting a smile on people’s faces, knowing i might’ve made someone’s day a little better because looks can be deceiving and a smile can be faked for the sake of not being asked if something’s wrong. putting a smile on people’s faces brought me joy so i would sit at tables with the elders at my dad’s shop and draw them pictures, things they tell me today that i’ve done 18 years ago and brought smiles to their faces.
a smile is forever something i want to project. // today, yesterday, and tomorrow, if i could put a smile on someone’s face, if i can brighten someone’s day one time, that is enough to make me feel like i did something worthy. a smile is a jewel, the most beautiful jewel a human being can wear because it comes from within. it comes and shines upon people, a smile is a gift of love, a gift that you offer people who you love, people who surround you,
people who live on this world with you because you never know what someone is going through. you do not know how deeply someone can feel blessed to have a person smile at them because life is hard, and it is impossible to know what everyone is going through, what every country has to face, what kind of issues and discrimination and violence and problems people face on a daily basis but never speak a word of it. a smile brings comfort, a smile brings love, it brings humanity, it connects people together.
do not be afraid to smile. your smile can be a beacon of light for someone and you’d never know. 🌺

I've been feeling vulnerable the past few days in taking a new direction as a freelance writer. I've only started barely a week ago and while I was submitting job applications to people all around the world, I got tense. Nervous. Uneasy. Doubt found its way easily into my work and creativity. I was blind because I couldn't understand why it was all gone in an instant. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻
And then I remembered how this was a new step I was taking for myself. A new risk and a new road I have absolutely no idea where it will take me. And so expectations and the opinions of others became a higher priority than leaning into myself. And this is why I wrote this. Why I'm choosing to share it with you. Because I'm just as vulnerable to life as you are. I still fall down so many times and don't always know how to get myself back up. But today is the day I've learned how to out of this fall. And I want to tell you, if you're feeling the same way, you aren't alone. And I believe you'll overcome it. ❤❤❤
this is not a letter full of words but feelings. to be with you, to be your main is so special for me but you don't understand your worth. you are more than they have told you, you are more than you think you are. you are not just another girl who is smaller than her mood swing, you are special. see yourself with my eyes, and you will see diamonds shining without any flaw. you are sweet like honey with everyone else, then why are you bitter with yourself. why so hard on yourself?
after a bad day, when everyone would have left you, you would find my hands on your shoulder, you would find me supporting you from falling, you would find me telling you how special you are and how much I love you. In this endless cycle of love and ignorance, I would only love you.
When we accepted each other, we didn't just accept good days, we accepted our bad days too that we would make better, together.
i would love you on your good days, i would love you on your bad days.
if you've ever been swimming in the ocean, you'll know that running from a wave is not an option. standing still is also not going to work. the only way to keep a large wave from wiping you out completely is to dive right into it. pain is just like that- if you run from it or stand still, it will wipe you out. don't be afraid, you can get through this if you dive into it.⠀
