Slow Dancing with Love

Before I begin to let my mind loose on you, I must admit I’m a bit intimidated about this subject- The painful, longing, desperate craving for a romantic relationship when you’re not necessarily ready for one. Warning: Marija was hurt in the making of this new perspective. Proceed at your own risk.  I grew up in a home of two adoring parents and an older brother. Quite a normal household, nothing too significant on the […]

The Secret to Love

———- How do you become brave enough to give love to others, unashamed of the aftermath, without a second thought of whether they deserve it or not? I’m going to tell you this right now- go ask someone else. When it comes to loving others around me I can say what I want and pretend as much as I please but inside I’m HORRIBLY afraid of human connection (funny considering that’s the thing I most […]

i used to call the tears that sunk into my pores, unfiltered and dirty emotion. i used to call the overwhelming need to breathe a clearer air, tangled and selfish ambition. i used to call my hearts whisper for those who my soul had cried for, a sound too loud that should be silenced. and now, i call her wild restless movement… nothing but pure and abundant PASSION.

i want to go back to when life was just about discovering the next part of myself…it’s seems within the growth, i have lost the core of my being. the more i push myself to give the aspects of me that i find my identity in, the more i feel stagnant. day to day, life doesn’t seem as much as a dream as it used to, and there must be something i can do to […]

i trail the lanes of a greenhouse. caressing the limbs of the living in hopes it will shed its life onto mine. in hopes it will fulfill me with the energy i once was known to have. they reached out to me, so gentle and soft. never intending to overgrow or invade the space of others like them, but rather coincide with unity. every atom within them glows. i admire hands that have taken care […]

The essence of music so loud it’s like it’s the beat of your own heart, and in a way it is. it seems to be keeping you alive in that moment. in that two or three hours you forget about what it is to grow up. you forget about anything bad or anything sour, it’s just the music reflecting off of itself combined with the voices of the crowd and the faint smell of sweat […]

vanquishing sea salt

as i lay within the sea salt waves every atom of myself and it interlaced i remember once they looked my age at seventeen in feet. to what i defined the dark blue habitation to creatures with teeth. but now i submerge myself underneath the rhythm of the crash that has begun to soothe me. i become the bridge to the chorus it’s creating building up to the pull back and crash. losing myself, creating […]

i get stuck thinking there are microscopic pieces of me in places i haven’t been, and in things i don’t have. like there are particles of me i’m looking for, in the form of dust floating aimlessly ahead of me somewhere. the sparks i feel trick me into thinking i need something tangible to be happier.- i’m not going to find myself in scenes meant for post cards or movies. i’m not going to find […]

old love

where old love grows take me there even when the shadows cover up the vibrancy of the burning passion i’ll still know it’s there i’ll leave it to rest and water it until the morning sunlight hits it once again -like the sun, inspiration and passion come and go- -this does not mean we shut the shades- …… it’s effortless to give up on what you love the most because you don’t “feel it” anymore.

recently, i had the opportunity to join some friends in a yoga class at hours before the sun rose, and one thing the instructor said stood out to me. “nothing left to do, nothing more to be.” it got me wondering how easily it is to get caught up in our tasks, our lives, even our own goals. always onto the next thing we have to get done, or in my case the next thing […]
