What space taught me

I’ve been thinking about how when you give yourself space from people you can end up realising that actually you’re quite content without that person being in your life.

And then days or weeks later when the space is no longer there you find yourself holding back because in that time of space you realised that what you have with this person is nothing more than familiarity.

The old things that would draw you in don’t have the effect that they used to. The things that you ignored even though they bothered you are no longer things you’re willing to over look.

Space taught me to remember the things that I have learnt.  For it is in moments of solitude that I am reminded of how much I love myself and all the things I want for myself and it’s okay to settle but it’s not okay to settle for other people.

H is for Haiku

Sometimes I even

Daydream about your embrace

That’s how good it is

Here’s something I wrote for someone but decided to share with you for Valentines Day instead. I have no plans for today aside from go to work, probably do a little bit of studying and then spend the evening watching Season 2 of Rumour has it on YouTube.

Or perhaps I’ll watch a romantic movie like ‘A walk to remember’, ’10 things I hate about you’ or maybe even ‘Say Anything’ because who doesn’t love an 80s classic.

 

‘Twas the day before Valentines day

Over the past week or so Valentines day has been on my mind. Not because there’s anyone in particular I’ll be spending the day with but more just thoughts of romance in general.

Last year I posted a photo on instagram and made a joke in the caption that I was checking my phone for V-day messages. A couple of months ago I wrote a poem for someone and last week I thought it might be nice to share it with the person on Valentines day which granted is kind of lame but I’m that kind of person.

But then a couple days passed and I realised that writing a poem for someone is even more special and meaningful than I initially thought. And I find that with many of the poems I write, they represent a fleeting thought or a moment that has passed, instead of my true overall feelings.

So instead of sharing a poem with a past love, I’m going to share it with you instead.
