Nothing ever truly ends
I close my eyes
to feel the cold air
touching my lungs
again -
I was warm,
the light was
so tangled in my hair
that my fingers
turned to gold.
Everything about it was
a forever could have been.
Back then,
there was a storm
in my heart
and no one heard
the scream,
the thunder.
At night
the walls of my room
were filled with
lightings coming out
of my chest,
but the noise never
woke anyone up
besides myself.
Everything ended
how all things end:
it didn't.
Think about it,
nothing ever truly ends,
isn't it so?
with time
the storm
turned to drizzle,
the thunders
turned to whispers,
the lightning
turned to dark,
but the core of it all
lives on
in me.
I just had to let go
of the storm
so I could live.
at nights,
I think of you.
I close my eyes
and I'm on that bridge again,
the city lights
in the water,
the cold air
my lungs.
I'm smiling
I can still hear the thunder.
Nothing ever truly ends
because nostalgia
will carry on
and oh,
how lu

We don't have to live forever
My arms
as I slowly
placed them around him.
He whispered
"can I call myself
if I've never felt
I nodded,
yet broken was too much
of a whole
to describe
I leaned over,
my arms grew back on -
they had to.
There was a lot
left to heal.

Her soul
was dripping
from his mouth -
there are many kinds
of hungers
and this may just be
the most dangerous one.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 14 9
We will never be of the same age again
I always felt like
I was going to die
yet, as years go by,
I'm slowly losing this bet
I've made against myself.
So here I am
living -
still doing things for the first time
like eating sushi,
meeting people,
new places
every time
I live something for the first time
I think of you
and how your list
of first things
is never going to grow out
to be more than it was
last november.
The first bite of cake I had
after you died
was the worst.
the small things
while going on living
felt unfair
to you,
but month after month
I learned to let go
of the guilt.
I've folded the memory of you
and hid it in my heart -
I often take it out
and leave it in the sun
to make sure the dust
won't settle on it.
You're still here,
even though you're not.
You told me
you liked my poems,
I'm sorry this had to be
the one written about you.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 69 40
Your teeth cracked
against my bones -
there's something
in being so greedy
to feel whole again,
I whispered
to myself.
I didn't even blink
or shudder.
You see,
I was a mountain
of all the never-ending stories
that I got to live
with people who felt more like
than anything else.
A mountain of unfinished... everything -
You should have known better:
mountains never quiver &
it's the anything unfinished
that ruins us
in the end.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 18 17
In a world of chains
In a world of chains
he's hushing his pace away,
but nobody hears the sound
of him living -
everyone carries on singing,
with each step,
the music of their past.
We all live dragging chains around -
the trick is to remember
that we once knew
how to dance
the music of silence.

Haiku #3
I let myself go
as my skin dropped to the floor -
no place left to hide.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 11 9
Haiku #2
I silently smile
at the sight of my own heart -
the monsters all sleep.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 11 4
Haiku #1
I can barely lie
under my skin anymore -
too much life within.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 13 7
H i r a e th
I am carelessly running
into things that remind me
of you.
Being here,
inside myself,
has never felt safe -
I am slowly walking
on the tip of my toes
hoping I won't bump
into memories of you;
You're made of a nostalgia
I'll be feeding on with hunger
and I won't stop,
I can't stop
until I'll wolf
everything down
to the last
could have been.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 7 20
To all the men who didn't see me for what I was
Tornadoes never make good shelters -
but he doesn't know that.
So he tries to find
refuge inside of me,
he tries to build a home
out of my bitten bones
with a porch swing
made of whatever
left-over love
someone forgot to take back.
He wants me to be a safe place
to hide away
from a troublesome summer,
but I am not made of light,
and I am not made of beginnings -
everything about me
is a never-ending ending.
Tornadoes never make good shelters -
and he will soon know that.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 26 14
The skin never forgets
I'm wearing your fingerprints
and I know
I'll never be naked again.
:iconthegirloftomorrow:TheGirlOfTomorrow 25 10
How do I get to live
when you're my Achilles heel,
my Achilles ankle,
and shoulders.
You tell me,
how could anyone ever survive
to such an absolute takeaway
of themselves?

I'm 26. I sometimes write poetry. Mostly in Romanian. Rarely in English. I also create blackout poems using English or American novels.

I live in Bucharest and sometimes in Brașov. But also in some other places you cannot find on a map.

A few weeks ago my poem called We will never be of the same age again received the Daily Deviation. Today, at 11 AM Pacific time (converted to the Romania time zone it would be 21 PM), there will be a chat room opened for discussions on several daily deviations, including mine. It's the first time I have ever participated in something like this. It's quite exciting. Feel free to drop by if you're curious.

Mulțumesc din suflet! Îmi cer iertare pentru întârziere, am fost într-o pauză foarte lungă de la orice ține de creativitate. M-a bucurat mesajul tău, chiar dacă l-am citit aproape cu un an mai târziu! :)
