to live or to save
in one single breath
you stand in your grave
it’s this or your Death.

Surely
my dreams will fade away
as I will always hope
someday

-R.A.

I am a fading star.
Once Upon a Time
I shone brightly
against the rest of the universe
a promise
of an everlasting era of light.
And then I grew older
the universe became too heavy
 and began to wear me out.
I no longer burned
as I used to
my Bright turning to Dim
and Dim to Dimmer
until I found myself flickering
desperate to live
desperate to die.

-R.A.

I never really knew
what breathing felt like
until my chest stung
with every inhale and every exhale.
I never really understood
how love can affect a person
until she was crying
afraid she’d made me angry.

I never realised
 how important emotions are
 until I was staring into the ceiling,
 willing the numbness
 to seep out of my bones.

I guess what I’m trying to say
is that you never really feel
anything
until you’re slapped in the face.

-R.A.

Timeless sadness always lies

-R.A.

My worst ever memory had to be my fifteenth birthday.
