Dear you , It's been a while since you last wrote .. I saw you curl up on your chair from across my patio , gazing into nothingness as if you were mourning a loss and you looked so much like the night sky.. devoid of her iridescent stars .. you felt like that ocean wave covered by an oil spill .. where neither light enters or exits . There was this antsy feeling of seeing you lost within that's inexplicable ..of being abandoned .. as you said the last time we spoke .. By your words . Like you I have often felt frost rest on the tip of my pen .. I have myself lived betwixt pauses of qualms as I saw my atelier devoid of words , metaphors .. a pause that seems like an eternity .. when one ends up questioning the worth of one's own words . So I know exactly what you feel and how forsakened you must feel . For what is a poet without words resting by his side ? But don't you despair . for nothing comes together when you see yourself fading away . look up at the sky .. isn't she beautiful ? she hides thunderstorms in her bosom , greys that do take away her aura from time to time .. but she always manages to get back her glow . So just wait . for that's what I do each time my words break away a link from me .. I simply mend that broken link and feel wholesome once again . Never stop writing . For you are your words . And they are pieces of your soul .
Dear stranger , I don't know when will this letter reach you or if ever it will.. but I write in hope that amongst the billions that breathe on this planet , there's someone out there who will read these words and relate to them . Sometimes faces , people , things defeat you in a way that makes you question the very essence of your being. But don't you ever let them get to your soul . For you are all your soul is . I have had my moments too where I have felt raw , ambiguous and lost . Not because I failed on my journey but because I became someone that wasn't me . What do you do when you see your own reflection and somehow feel like turning away ? Have you ever felt like this ? Have you ever felt your mind saying that your heart isn't golden any longer for you caved in too soon ? Over the years I have changed . For the better I feel . There was this one moment that just collapsed into my palms and exploded .. shattering me . But it was this very moment that saw me revive too . I am sure you would have had such a moment too . And then that moment on I never looked back . I became what I was meant to . I chose what I had to . I did what I wanted to . Defying the norms doesn't mean that you are egoistic .. it only means somewhere you choose peace of mind over things that no longer hold importance in your life . Do you think what I did was right ? Cos at times I do question myself whenever I am all alone under the canopy of the night sky .. sometimes dark as my thoughts and sometimes as resplendent as those stars when my chosen path shines in front of me leading me to a place of bliss . Today I am at an age where I live with little but more . A paradox for others . But it encompasses the very gist of my existence . I no longer fear . For I have sown forgiveness in my garden and grown lilies of gratitude in my backyard . May this letter reach you in time . For incase you ever stand at crossroads .. do think of me . And follow your heart . Cos that's what I did .
