another pain bites the dust

Well…apart from the post-extraction part, I’m feeling really good. Tooth extractions are never fun, but I’ve had problems with that one back tooth since 2013, so letting it go was the easiest decision of 2017, by a long shot.

This previous weekend, I was in so much discomfort and pain; literally a sigh of relief in knowing it’s all over. Still a lot of stuff to do today but right now I’m resting until I have to go out of the door again. The whole point of this blog is to document life and that’s what I am doing. It’s not an interesting read, but sometimes, you just need to have an outlet.

My secondary blog is a different story, that’s where I’ll be posting drafts, poems and other random bits of writing, so if that seems appealing at all, check it out: Lay Your Hands Bare.

What are your plans for today? Feel free to leave a comment below.

Have a wonderful day!

mind struck a nerve

I had this need to write out my feelings on here and I hope you don’t mind.

Well, my brain is at war with my heart, clearly, because nostalgia has crept into my thoughts again, it’s heavy and demanding. 

Right now it’s four in the morning, and perhaps the lonely hour is upon us, which reminds me of previous late night discussions between me and an old friend; someone who ultimately became a ghost in the shadows. 

The point of this post is, there isn’t one. 

I have no clue as to why I need to express myself in the middle of the night. 

Maybe it’s the longing to see your eyes the minute I wake up in the coming hours, or just the sense of knowing you’re present. To know everything will be fine in the end, that you’ll be here to cushion the impact.

To say that I miss you is an understatement. To say that I didn’t wish for a second chance to know you is greater.

But life can be a bitter lemon, and sometimes, it’s an apple you can sink your teeth into.

Be careful with your heart, but love as if you’ve never been hurt before. Follow your heart, dreams, instinct, gut feeling.

We only have this life; cherish every moment.
