a frustrated poet hides himself away from the world –
he is writing for his survival, FIGHTING to be timeless.

Máh Lima & Alrtistry present to you: Loneliness…
Written by Máh: @Mah.Writes

At some point communication was ignored.
The pain rose like the sun, every single day
Every time a word was said
It was meant to cause more pain.
Silence was like air
But minds were too loud,
Too loud to hear what was said behind it all.
Because pain kept rising with the sun
And refused to set
And at some point silence was all they had
When they got so caught up in the self
They forgot the meaning of “us”
With the ego constantly screaming “I”.
And the light that only shone from the hurt
Couldn’t illuminate two broken hearts.

Alchemy. Taking blank material and transforming it into something else, is fairly spectacular. Sometimes the intention is not even apparent. This creative process is very interesting and inspiring.
There is such a unique beauty to go from blank canvas to an explosion of color or a creative vibrant script. I hope for the rest of my life to transform my truth into a reflective image.

It’s not the end of the world, although that’s how it seems. Some of the scars you’ll gain. you will try to hide. Some you’ll show on your skin. On your darkest moments, you’ll cry alone in a corner hidden from the world, but you’ll be alright. Even though it seems like no one really cares, that is not the whole truth. People show affection differently. And yes, she loves you. All the negative judgment and beliefs you’ll build will surely be torn down. It’s ok to recede inside that shell if it means you’ll stay alive. It’s ok to numb yourself if it will get you through it all. You will grow through this. I am letting you know, so remember: life will beat you down, but you will get up.

i can feel the brokenness
moving inside of you
it’s like a magnet
i need to hold you close and repel the fears
that rob you of your peaceful eyes
allow me to be your knight during those nights
when darkness comes to bring you wool
perhaps i’m so attracted to these cracks in your foundation
because i’m familiar with the void
and the depths it produces
when we lack the ability to avoid
i know you need a guardian
that makes you feel safe as you hide
let me provide some sort of blanket for your security
even if it may only be
for a short time.
