The get to know me tag | Getting back to blogging

Hello people of the internet!

It feels good to be back typing away on the keyboard. I’ll cut straight to the chase, my plan for the next three & half months of 2018 is to publish at least one post a week. I figured this would help me be mindful of the present, instead of stressing about what is yet to come & that which i have no control over.

So to kick-start this one-post-a-week journey, what better way than a ‘Get to know me’ tag?

Dear Hope

Dear hop

I forget your touch, It’s just been that long.

But some part of you still lingers in my memory.
A part that is trying hard to resurface, but the elements won’t let it.

I am starting to recollect what you felt like…
Like my mother’s touch
Like my lovers kiss
Like the petrichor after the first rain.

You’re a tough one, you. As stubborn as a mule.

Is my mind playing games on me? Or have you always felt like…
A constant coolness to my soul
A startling epiphany, and the sudden calm that follows
A tingling that won’t go unless I acknowledge your presence?

If you always felt this good, why don’t you stay?
Why do you have to run away?

I wonder sometimes, dear hope, are you even real?
