A Word or Two


A Word or Two

I discovered myself through words
Secrets I couldn’t expose
Things forbidden to say
The boundaries, the bars, the cages and the walls
I brought them down

I discovered real passion
For love, for life
A passion towards others
Those who anchored your boat
Held their breath underwater
Until you were ready to set sail

I discovered magic
Something I never saw in letters
In the words they form
That can unite, destroy,
Or give some more-
Another piece of you
To the spectators

And love-
Through words
I discovered love…

I’m 25, and I live in Lebanon. I’m an Interior Architect graduate with a minor in English. My hair is always a different color. I love cheese with some extra cheese. The gym is my natural habitat, and my car hosts the best concerts you'll ever attend. I love writing poetry, thoughts, and stories. My inspiration comes from my childhood memories, heartbreaks, and sometimes I like to imagine certain scenarios that are completely fictional or write a different ending to something that happened with me. It's like wishful thinking...
