Reasons to stay alive.

All these tiny skies

That open up

Inside you

When someone

Makes gold bloom

Out of your wrists

With their love.

That is a reason

To stay alive.

I haven’t been posting much, I know. But I’ve been away taking care of my mental health. How have you all been?

Darkness is beautiful.

Spend some time

With the night sky

Curled up beside you.

Let it drip secrets

In your ears

About how

Its darkness

Is its most

Breath-taking feature.

2 a.m.

There’s something About The dark hours Of 2 a.m That switches on The lanterns Along your spine And lets you see, Clearly, The words Gushing mutely Through your bones. -Rupali Jeganathan | The Girl Lost In The Bookstore Follow me on Instagram.  

Soul poetry.

Today, I mixed

A bit of

Your memories

With the watercolours

And painted

Poetry

On the walls-

No one knows

Why the walls

Glow

At night.
