(LATE POST) We celebrated world vitiligo day this year on the 25th of june which aims at creating awareness about the lives of people living with vitiligo and the social aspects of it. This poem portrays how their firm determination combined with a bit of our empathy can make their lives better in the society. Do comment below if you like it🙂

Never knew I could feel this way til I met you.
Never knew love like this was real until I let you in. 
Never thought I’d find someone like you, until you found me. 
Never dreamt I’d walk away from the ugliest thing I once called love and end up meeting you.

Never knew I could feel this way til I met you.

The #superafghanloom from #ACMoore that I bought at the beginning of the month is birthing one of my favorite and one of my softest creations yet 😭 After using a 65% off coupon (🤷🏽‍♀️) I snagged this bad boy for about $22 - and with the three balls of yarn that I bought, my total was only $37. I'm getting ready to cast on ball number three now, and my goal is to be finished by next Thursday. Wish me luck! 🌙✨

Knowing you was so modern
Time isn’t real but it’s a form of guidance 
So is your time, but valuable 
So are your workouts, work, and education on check even if People aren’t with you
Your following list has you set, even if it gets lonely at times, 
Burning sensation on my skin, no one wonders , slows down to question
Is this a facade for success and self assurance 
Is this the only savior for health?
There was so much more, to the both of us,
There was so much I never said, so much you never said,
My pride is made out of medal, yours is like mine,
I hope what your chasing for , brings joy to your heart ,
Because I am letting you go, swim away , dream away,
50/50 no longer, your no longer my blue my cruise , no longer good for peace and my health ✨

“Don’t let go. Don’t let me slip through the cracks once more. You don’t need to beg me to stay, just let down your guard and stop pushing me away. I want to be more than a memory you hold on to. I want to hold our dreams in the palm of my hand. And then grasp on to your own. Clench our finger tips between each other and forever lock inside and fears that this love with slip away.”

medusa fucks men in the dark. there is no candle for mood lighting. no soft music to add a tempo to match. she never lies on her back. she always rides from above. they call her baby. they call her muñeca. they call her mamacita, pretty little slut do it just like that oh, shit, baby, yeah, you dirty whore just like-- and when they are about to cum she flicks on the switch. tells them: look at me. they don't have a moment to scream. when it is over she breaks them with her hands. rubs the dust on her body, pulls back the veil between her thighs and allows pleasure to come from their pain because they called her evil.
so she listened.

I realized that what used to be my truth is now a bittersweet dream. 
All those nights my love I had you sleeping by my side;
Without ever truly knowing the meaning of your beating heart.
It was not until it stopped pounding when I realized,
That nothing was worth more than your warms hugs at night.
And I would do anything, give up anything, including thousands of bags of ore;
Just to hear the  sound of your beating heart once more. - Adriana Carolina Nava Sosa

Forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for the moments you feel you messed up. Forgive yourself for feeling you need to be a perfect person. Forgive yourself for having anxiety. You are trying your best. You are. Do what is best for you even if it means making someone upset. You aren’t intentionally doing it. Maybe they can’t understand what you’re experiencing and maybe you can’t put into words what you’re experiencing. Anxiety isn’t worth something you don’t have to do. Slow down. Put the sanity of your soul before anything else. Forgive yourself for disappointing someone. Say you are sorry and take another breath forward. Always take another breath forward. You are not taking breaths back.

Change is weird. It never really ends. Things are constantly changing and it constantly freaks me out. I need to remember that growth always comes with change. I might not see it right away, but it will show up sooner or later. I pray today for courage to face change. I pray for patience towards the changes I want to just happen already. I pray for these words to help you get past whatever’s pulling you down today.

If you're a lover, a feeler, and if you care this is a reminder for you. The last thing that the world needs is less people like you. Being kind, generous and giving are nothing but positive qualities and it's only because people have been through something that doesn't allow them to see that, that they might trying to make your caring out to be a bad thing or belittle or make fun of you for being a person that's not afraid to love others and to do so openly and without fear. Sometimes it's also just seeing you be happy and carefree that's a trigger for people when they themselves aren't happy (because it reminds them of that fact). But the point is that it's not a you, it's a them thing. Being happy and optimistic can offend people that are insecure.

— the life of a happy poet.
the day a poet discovers the most perfect girl, he will be the happiest man alive. and he may have hard days ahead of him, but he will never ever be sad.
even if sadness grazes him, he will think about her, and that will calm him down more than any pills he’s ever had to take.
he will daydream about her at work, see her face on the front shield of his car, picture her when he’s with boring people (and not be that bored anymore).
the only thing, however, that will trouble him a little, is his writing. because almost all his life, all he ever knew, was to channel his sadness into writing. that’s why he began writing in the first place. he’d get sad, and his notepad with a pen would be where he’d go.
but now, he doesn’t get sad. remember? so now, he can’t write anymore.
a lot of his friends, family, and fans, will tell him “hey, it doesn’t always have to be sad. write happy stuff.”
and he groans, but he tries. i swear to god he tries. he spends 4 hours trying to write something about her. but all he accomplishes in those 4 hours, is an empty sheet, and constant blushy red cheeks. 
she has a habit of distracting him, you see.
so now, every passing day, he tries writing. at first, he gives it four hours, on a go. then it reduces to three. then to one. eventually, he just loses touch to his writing.
why?
because writing for him was always an escape. an escape from the pain. a brief escape from his depression. but now, he has a new escape. 
her.
and so, he turns to her, from time to time, and she, with time, calms him down. in a way that none of his words could ever compare.
fast forward to ten years, he’s retired from poetry. and eventually, slowly, but eventually, people forget his existence. some remember, but remember him in incomplete puzzles. 
but he’s somewhere, in a country far away from his hometown, with no sadness ever being able to touch him. because his escape, remember, that perfectly imperfect woman? he’s married to her.
and so, fast forward to five more years, he’s telling his kids: the story of how poetry initially saved his life. but then, it was their mother, who saved him, from all of it.
