sometimes,

pain can only be
understood when it’s read
in between the lines
as our minds try to comprehend
it for the hundrenth millionth time
and we are left speechless,
dumbfounded,
our hearts
rendered
indifferent

is it too much to say
I don’t care anymore

i have a habit of internalizing

dreams, wishes, thoughts
they float around in my head until wobbling out onto paper
fully covered in ink

voice                                                                                                                      sometimes i drown myself in it and sometimes it drowns in me
Quiet does not equate to Silent
you cannot handle my silence

tears, hurt, pain
i tend to sit in my own silence, deafening
a ticking bomb
i may lose my sanity or i may lose my self

either way i’m lost to this world

The One and Only Ivan

” I think for awhile. It’s hard to put into words. Gorillas are not complainers. We’re dreamers, poets, philosophers, nap takers.”

The One and Only Ivan

Finally, I took it upon myself to read this book. Despite it being a quick read, it was an emotional journey. The emotions itself were raw and powerful. They shook me. I cried for Julia. I felt Ivan’s rage as he beated his chest, over and over again. Inspired by a true story of a gorilla in captivity, this story explores the power of friendship, identity, and creativity.
