My debut poetry collection, Perpetual Fire, is out now!
Perpetual Fire is a passionate story of discovering your inner fire and understanding that even though muses and lovers fuel your flame; only you are responsible for your own blaze.
The collection is for those who are brave enough to love deeply, madly, and authentically – although love can throw you from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, and sometimes even in a blink of an eye.
The book consists of 30 poems. My poetry touches on love & intimacy, heartache & longing, nostalgia, toxic relationships and self-empowerment.
I’m so proud of myself for writing a book in my second language. This was such a personal project for me, but the feedback I’ve received from the WordPress community encouraged me to put it out there for everyone to read. Thank you for your continuous support over the years.
Skin on skin
yet not close enough
Breathing you in
until you vanish
on forgotten valleys
where birds preach about
what-ifs and used-to-be’s,
where the crescent moon
reminds me of
how your hands loved me
before the dawn,
where a ghost choir
overplayed love songs,
Alone in the afterglow, lying here in our memories
reminiscing how it felt to be an inspiration for your creative fingertips; how I melted like soft clay in the hands of a dedicated sculptor as you made me your secret masterpiece, and yours alone I still am in the afterglow of our love
Reminiscing how it felt to unfold you with my love, one layer at a time or how my hopeful lips stole your breath and made it ours in the kiss of truths and expectations
and still tonight I breathe our love when I escape to the place where yesterday’s spark still flames where unwritten poems sensuously moan, where you stay with me unforgettable in the afterglow
