I’m a damn Pokémon. This is what dating is for me. I’m in the wild, alone in the grass, focusing on survival. No one tries to catch me for a very long time. I am lonely, but there is no time in finding my trainer when survival is at my neck in all times. MyContinue reading “I’m a Pokémon.”
I’m beginning to feel like love is not a matter of fate. Neither is it an automated process or something that just, “happens.” Love is just as much work as building a business or perfecting a skill.

Guarded by pain. Sheltered by fear. Never too close. Or you may never see it again. To see the light it must first accept its grace. If only it could trust enough to step outside the walls of defense. And embrace freedom. Until then it cannot be touched. Until it allows itself to.
You left me very confused. You showed me interest, but no affection. You left me very confused. You showed me affection, but no peace. You left me very confused.
