Welcome to my poetry blog!

I am a twenty-four brown-eyed Aruban wanderer;
forever questioning where I'm going
and where I've been.
And when I'm not reading,
I'm writing. When I'm not writing, I'm reading.

Furthermore, writing has always been my
way of captivating a deep thought, grief,
lost love, depression and even hatred (sometimes).

Feel free to read and comment on my weird,
puzzling, obsessive, reckless and sometimes
confusing poems. It's all about what you
interpret from them that gets me buzzin'!

Thank you and have fun reading y'all.

Romanticizing it

Romanticizing it
He came along one evening and swept me off my feet.
But then,
He placed me back on the ground,
And slapped reality to my face.

‘’There’s nothing in the world but us and our love.’’
‘’There’s nothing in the world but everything else but us.’’

As I stared into his eyes,
Wondering, what had changed him…?
I realized it wasn’t him.
It was me.
Romanticizing everything, once again.

Uh, sigh…
Romance seems dead in reality and only alive in movies and books…
Romance…Where art thou?
