In my dreams,
I am living an Italian Summer.
I wake up to a soft breeze,
Sending vibrations through my veins,
And warm beams of sunlight,
Thrusting through the curtains,
Bidding my slumber goodbye.
I slide my body through the curtains
Guarding the balcony,
And take in...

In a world where we are persecuted and shunned, we have a place to call our homeland.

She beckons us home where we are welcomed by our brothers and sisters with whom we share
connections built on our identity, religion, and culture.
No matter our sect, our lifestyle, or...

We kissed until the trains stopped running
You said that God spoke through me

I have nowhere to go
And you have no faith
If you’ll be my home
I’ll be your church

I feel your hands travel up and down
My thighs
And your thumbs link into my belt loops
The way thoughts trave...

the morning came

and i woke up

loving you still

and then the sun washed away

all the storm

the previous night

had brought

but the sun couldn't wash away

the darkness

hidden away in my soul

the harrowing thoughts

i had tucked away

the sun couldn't reach inside

the cracks of myself

ust because

i am a storm

does not mean

i have to rain

and thunder

and strike lightning to innocent trees

(innocence that always seems synonymous to you)

i am a storm

that has ruined

left destruction in a trail of fire behind me

with sadness and sorrow plaguing it

regret just arou...

I’m asian.

So they tell me that my nose is flat,

I’m good at math and I eat cats

(or dogs, I like to alternate - that kitten’s got me feeling great)

My mom can’t drive, my dick is small,

For an asian, man I’m pretty tall

The kids would call me Ichiro when I would play baseba...

No matter time nor place,

There are some things that you should know

If I pass, just in case.

I tell you - do not grieve,

I know that it may suck

And as if I wanted to leave,

You dress me in a tux.

Can you keep me in mind?

Because I think you’ve won,

For all the friends I’ve le...

*WARNING: Spoilers for Breaking Bad and Ant-Man*

            I’ll get right into it. Chekhov’s Gun is an almost universally accepted rule of writing fiction. Coined by playwright Anton Chekhov, it states that “If a gun is placed on a table in Act 1, it must be fi...

I believe that everyone needs an emergency supply of music when they’re feeling certain emotions (hence why I have 700+ song playlists for different vibes). Here are some top album picks for when you’re feeling happy, sad, anxious, hype, or a little bit funky!

Removing your pictures
from the poster boards hanging on my wall
wasn't difficult
learning that I can extract
the guilt, the sad cities
I cried over and carried with me all these years
wasn't impossible
trying to empty
all of the tired from my bones
the hunger from...
