Be CarefulI've done it againBe Careful by jayscriminal
New stranger in my life
The usual of falling in love routine
But this time will be different
As curiosity of taking charge rises
My mind and heart orders me to slow down
We all don't want to go through it again
The fight between my heart and mind of doubting if he's good or bad
The screw this attitude when possessing my love for him
Ignoring all signs and warnings
Another heart broken
No more, sweetie
My heart and mind says
As much as we love seeing you moving on
We can't afford another potential heartbreak
Please listen to us
Slow down and be careful
Haiku Collection - Inspiration and MotivationBrave the unknown roads,Haiku Collection - Inspiration and Motivation by ArtsyAmbassadorArt
Comfort zones expand only
By treading beyond.
Confront your conflicts.
Avoidance prolongs a chase
That may never end.
No second guessing,
Do not falter, seize your chance,
Extend your limits;
When someone raises that bar,
Meet and then beat it.
Set some goals in life.
Having no dream fills you with
Your fire snuffs only
When YOU cut off the fuel
And give yourself up.
Your motives are only
As firm as your conviction
And pure as your heart.
Do not fear failure.
Take risks, chance fate, try new things
Or success can’t show.
You can’t move forward
If you are still looking back.
Leave the past behind.
Beckoned to the HeightsI looked to the shell,
It's scaffolding called me,
So much we had in common,
A frame of emptiness,
It beckoned me to climb,
Offering freedom from judgement,
Promising release from pain,
Too bad I am afraid of heights.
my mouth is filling with sandmy brother used to tell me to hold my breath until i could hear the ocean in my head. and i did, it was a soft roar of sky fighting sea. eventually when my eyes rolled back like waves, he would make me breathe so i didn't drown.
he was always there to tell me to breathe out but now he is gone and i am forgetting how to.
we were very young when our father died (fell from a cliff photographing the moon) and our mother started dating the milkman. he was gangly man with white hair but otherwise very handsome. we didn't mind him at all. he made our mother smile and brought warm milk every night. but we missed our father and his stories about stars and planets.
one night we tried in vain to bring our father back to life in this man, he lay on our bed and we begged a story. but rather than talk about the grandeur of the milkyway he told us the percentages (down to 7 figures) of the essential vitamins in milk. we yawned and slept as he watched on proudly, thinking he had inspired delighting dr
Realms of Day | Chapter 1 All that time she had spent waiting for an interview paid off as she read that acceptance letter. As a perk for being accepted into Scotland Yard, she was cordially invited to the bi-annual policeman's ball where she would no doubt meet her new employers and fellow officers. As happiness welled inside her chest, it suddenly became overshadowed by the thought of what her new job would actually be like. She wondered if they'd put her on desk duty right off the bat or if they'd ship her off to work in the field, like she had been hoping for. With my luck, she thought, I'll end up the over qualified secretary. "Keaira Than, brand new and under paid." she huffed, tossing the letter onto her night stand. "Sounds about right." Of course she wouldn't really know what she would be doing until her first day at work, which according to the letter mentioned that she would be starting in a about a week.
Keaira leaned back into her bed, letting it
Purification - Not!At a very spiritual stage in my life, I felt I should purify myself somehow in order to channel certain healing powers I had experienced. I looked at various ways: thinking positive thoughts, using certain essential oils, carrying crystals, etc., and last but not least I looked at my diet. Now I had always tried to maintain a balanced diet: half of each week I ate healthy foods and for the other half I ate unhealthy ones. This, however, was not the way forward to purification!
I then read umpteen books on ways to eat healthily and nearly hung myself after the first chapter of each one. The authors of these books were obviously paragons of virtue in a world of food temptations such as burgers, chips, crisps, chocolate, sweets, etc.,etc., and existed on either vegetarian or vegan diets or even the more saintly-inspired macrobiotic diets. There were words and phrases in these books that occurred constantly, causing extreme fear to strike my heart, my poor bl
The Day Selim Wrote a Short Story"Argh! I never seem to finish any of my stories! How do I even cure this ailment? Just look at those piles of unfinished writings!"
Selim Katib loved to read ever since he was small. His parents bought him books and book shelves and placed them in his room, and since his father Orhan worked at the local library, Selim would occasionally receive a new book every other week.
Selim read a lot of books covering on the topics of science, theology, history, culture and literature. One can say that he was quite a refined man, although he had slight difficulty in digesting anything mathematical. Well, some aspects of maths, that is.
Of all the things that he enjoyed reading, it was the collection of fiction novels that prompted him to enjoy reading. Most of what he read was well-written, telling stories inspired by folklores and history, science and philosophy, among other things, like most of those good novels we have read once or twice, maybe more.
Selim aspired to become a good writer, if n
Changing the World.The world is smaller now than it used to be. And dustier. It is contained. Preserved.
Three years ago things were different. The world spread daily because an amazing guy called Ben was part of it. Love, it seemed, was synonymous with growth and everything flourished around me: plant life, social occasions, self esteem... I could go on.
I was a ‘Pretty Woman’. Ben took me to theatres, fancy restaurants, art galleries and so forth and he talked to me. Subjects I had never even given a second thought to; quantum physics for a start! I thought I wasn’t intelligent enough to get to grips with such things but he proved me wrong. Ben explained things so clearly, so animatedly, with an enthusiasm that was infectious. His passion was a catalyst to the widening of my world.
James, my husband, was the complete opposite of Ben. He was a practical, workaholic, who had no time for other interests. I tell a lie, he had a rather naughty fetish for stamp collecting!
Empty WorldI left that night with you and you made it unforgettable.
I sat upon the end of the bed, slouched forward with shame washing over me. I kept my crumbling composure intact as you resided across the room, gathering up your items and readying yourself for work. As I watched you cover your naked body, a frightened little girl cried out inside me. I wrapped my arms around myself and embraced her with all the love we’ve only known by a stranger and that stranger was you.
For years, I had created memories of you, memories of days that could have existed. My thoughts were what I only recalled of you. I had days where I would find myself in a sleepless night, wondering how in my hazy mind to withdraw a tangible memory. I wasn’t able to unless I read a little red book. And as I read each word, day after day, the memories were created into a film, where I no longer needed to forcefully think to remember you. Every moment I played, the less I started to cherish them. I had fought for y
