Choosing to stay afloat
on a mirage of ghosts that were supposed to stay unseen.
To the openness of day
and closeness of the dark.
By dawn
How untimely
To overwhelm each other with a
yearning to scorn
And spit
at another croaking insect
For digging up its own hole
And crying at its own funeral
We can’t feel remorse
Atleast pity the pity, no?

º º º

magnets have been pretending to be stones, you know?

The rarest gems in the world were once stones,

Some you break in half to undress wisdom

Some you see through, to really see at all

Some you leave there lying, as if they weren’t already dying

º º º

Use and abuse the small, collect this pocket-fit, nameless cause

Prolonged superstitions, how long till you pile this desire

to want to own the way they crawl?

º º º

Teach me worth, and I’ll teach you value

º º º

I can’t hold this quill any longer

It stabs and stings

like a porcupine

to these whispers
As they scribble
All the screams
I can’t understand
And yet
Want you to understand

A blend of euphoria

Hysteria, my friend

a whirlpool as I see it…

Hi. Now that you're here...let's just get this out of the way. I hadn't introduced myself in the past because when I first started this blog, I wanted it to be purely about my writing. This is not, and was never supposed to be, an anonymous blog. However, after almost a year of inactivity, I realize an 'about' section is...necessary? My name's Sadia. I live in Islamabad, Pakistan. Between uni/work/life in general, I try to take time to write. I own all content on this blog. Although, I do NOT own the images posted here, nor do I take credit for them whatsoever. I wanted to thank my visitors, for still being loyal and genuine after this long. In case you want to know more about me for whatever inexplicable reason, ask ahead and I'll get back to you! This right here, keeps me sane. You will find here, sincere thoughts mixed up with a subconscious trying to fuck it all up. I hope you understand. Love, Sadia.

  1. Jag har inte flyttat, bara bytt till egen domän! Och så har jag pekat den gamla mot den nya så ingen ska gå vilse så klart. Jag ber om ursäkt ifall det skapat förvirring och merbkjb.Böcoerx3/Metta recently posted..
