You cannot force a circle to close before its time has come..even if it does not play an active role in your life, an open circle is still a part of you...then, you suddenly wake up one day and you know closure has reached you...quietly, unforced and peacefully...and only then you can look back and evaluate...and you know you did well...and you know that the time has come to burn the bridge and move on...it is one of the most liberating feelings...

Nobody said it was gonna be easy...nobody said it's not worth the struggle. This is a reminder that none is our rescuer...and that at those moments when we find ourselves swimming in the darkest of waters we realize that it is from within us that the light that can lead us to the shore will shine...! May we all find our inner light.. this way the world might become a better place for humanity...!

The confidence of knowing that nothing they do can bring you down...the security of being intelligent enough as to conceal the fact that you will get to have the last laugh...the strength of being patient until the right time arrives for your response...
There is no reason to lose your smile when you know how to be ahead of the game...

"Of course she could play the game...in fact, she knew how to play the game so well as if though she had been the one to invent it. And whenever she bit the bait and went on and played she won. With destructive effects for the opponent. So she turned her back. She stopped wanting to play. Life should not be about games...life should be about openness towards others...and relationships should not be about games...they should be about togetherness and trust...not throwing out your guns and killing someone's feelings just because they trusted you enough as to let down their guard. Life is to love. Simple stuff...yet so complicated that so many people decide to spare them, afraid of their own incapacity for human interaction. She refused to be a part of that anymore...she was not afraid...so she turned her back and walked away..." (from "The blinding shadows of you", m.ouv 2016)

Fearless, she can smell the danger but she won't back down...
Indomitus, she can take the punch but will not break down...
In love with integrity,
She can see the norm but never in this she will be drown...
Her quality is fierce
Her truth is too loud
And the name of hers is "authentic"... (m.ouv.)

Just a #shoutout to all the ladies out there who dare to embrace who they truly are without feeling the need to become something else to be appreciated. The #authentic women who do not feel the need to imitate anyone to be worthy. The #beautiful girls who understand that they do not need anyone's attention to be validated! The ones who speak with their own voice and not the voice of narcissism, exhibitionism or materialistic show off! The ones who can stand out, strip bare and wear their best selves on their sleeves! To real women, to strong women, to independent women, to the ones who are courageous enough to be themselves! Cause honestly, we are fed up with fakes and cheap imitations!

Hold
Your venomous insinuations
Concerning my wrongs
For I am protected
By the prerogative
Given by my right
To be resistant
To your hypnotic 
Influence

...for sure, she was not a white canvas where he could explore his artistic expeditions...she was a wall densely covered with graffitis, and if he wanted to leave his mark, well, he'd better make it one to stand out...

"...she had to do it...she had to follow her gut because she needed to see colours again...but sometimes, on nights like this, when the wind sits still and the silence whispers every name you wish you'd never hear again, she seeks him out...for she kept enough darkness within her to know that beauty does not reside solely in colourful sights, sweet scents and butterflies...beauty, my love, is to be found in places where every shade of a shadow speaks louder than goodbyes..."

Yesterday I left my house without taking my phone. I wanted to go out and be alone. No devices, no distractions. I walked around and for the first time I had all my senses open to receive, to absorb my surroundings. I sat somewhere. It was busy. And because it was busy I felt even more alone. Not lonely. Just more alone...a state of aloneness. I ordered my drink. And since I had nothing else to do I started looking around, people-watching, observing those around me. Mostly couples. It was to my disappointment that I saw that most of the couples had one thing in common. At least one of them had their head dug in a phone. Texting...checking social media...whatever. It does not matter to me. The other was often gazing around, having that look of awkwardness and of trying to conceal that they felt uncomfortable. And I remembered being there...with a date who had one hand on my thigh while his other was on the phone, checking out Instagram stories. Yes, that made me feel uncomfortable. Made me feel not enough. When I spoke, I was said that I was overreacting. So I wanted to shout at the girl across me that it is okay to feel bad about it. Go ahead and speak...you are not overreacting. But instead of doing that I decided to  mind my own business and just feel happy for being there alone by choice and not being made to feel alone while supposedly with company..And it occurred to me how hard it is nowadays to connect with each other. We cannot connect unless we disconnect... For life is happening where we are, moments are gone before we realize that we experienced them...don't just let them slip away while you are staring at a screen...after all, it is not your phone that will kiss you goodnight...

You are not just my blood sister...you are my soul sister, my best friend, my firmest rock, my go-to person and my partner in crime. In the 25 years I have known you I felt and keep feeling more than proud of you. I know that this type of public emotional outbursts is not really our style but I want to tell each of my followers that today is my sister's birthday. And I want to wish you happy birthday. And I want to publicly admit that you were and always will be the best Christmas present. Ever. Period. Love you more than words, but, hey...you are already aware of this!! -

When in Athens presenting my poetry collection...had a blast, met some wonderful people and was reminded of how some topics will never cease being relevant and will never escape my creative palette. Thank you @universe_pathways_editions for the invitation to participate.

I am falling
not weightless anymore
Your gravity is pulling me closer
and closer
I am drawn to you
as if each of my cells 
demands of a landing
on your unconquered surface.
The pull is strong
Still, your celestial body 
so out of reach
...but you keep on pulling 
and pulling me closer
And there's nothing 
that I crave more
than this landing.
You reign the sky like a star
that has been deprived 
of its own light
Yet to my eyes
you are blinding.
And I keep gravitating 
towards you
Your magnetism
equal
to your unreachability.
As I hover over you
I reach closer
and you pull harder
and I reach to you
but then I fly away
while still dreaming of our touch.
So it becomes clearer.
Maybe it is not you
that allows me
no landing.
Maybe
I am just destined
to be forever
Interstellar.
