If you follow me for my writing please read the following:
A few weeks ago, I received a message that read: “I have been following you for over a year now and have seen your grow as a person. But, I’ve also witnessed as you slowly deleted your poetry and post your writing less. I know you don’t owe me a explanation and that’s why I wanted to let you know that your readers are patiently waiting.” There is something in me that yearns to explode. A part of me that wants me to pry it open. I have stories that are scratching at my ribs to let them fly into the foggy blue sky. Characters that have been with me since I was thirteen that laugh at my late night jokes; scenes I have painted way too many times that depict the places I’ve never been to but are nostalgic about.
These are tales with many facets to them. My soul is in the process of coming to terms with its purpose and when it’s ready, I’ll spend endless hours turning my past lovers into blooming affairs; I will inscribe my pain and memories of my distant past into lullabies. That’s my purpose: to place the final full-stop when my lungs take their last breath, to write about everything and nothing, to write knowing that my style is breaking all the rules, to simply write. I’m here to freeze moments of my life in 80gsm paper. My sole purpose in this life is to love and write. I say sole, for whatever I love, I will write about and whatever I write I hope to love.
For a while now, I’ve been working on another project. This would be about everything I have seen and hope to see. I was, however, brought to the realization that I don’t know how to tell my story. My life is still in the making and as a result, I don’t know where to begin or end. But, it’s coming into being. I have taken a step back from writing and the world of publishing in order to understand what this craft means to me. When I am done reshaping my voice and doodling, I will give you something.
Thank you for all those that have stuck around. Even though it’s not a book, something will be out in a few weeks. - 1 day ago
