"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

I tried, hold on
I fear, it's gone
To give up, I know not
To give in, I cannot

A heart untamed
Stunned and framed
Shush! It claimed
Every beat that flamed

Dear Nala...

Today is the first time I'm writing to you
Like an invisible soul mate 
I've been creating you for awhile now
Breathing life and shape into you
Carving you out of nothing but just my thoughts

A spare room
Emptying space
A faint heartbeat
Thundering mind

A turn inward
Breathing consistent
A quiet sigh
Becoming aware
