You are my city.

Your eyes are the gates,
Your soul is my transport
Your veins the roads I travel.

You should never ever be afraid
of my knowing you too well.
Or of my being too close to you.


After all,

Can you ever,
Even after living your whole life in it,

Know a city too well?

Nikita Gill, For my Sleeping Lover before I Leave for Work.

Also known as ‘For Kurt, My City

It’s 3 a.m. I’m still awake. I’m losing sleep. I’m losing myself.

I’m losing you.

So I write tonight. I write for everyone of us who has suffered. Every one of us who is broken. Every one of us who has a damaged soul. Every one of us whose brilliant scarlet became just another red.

This is for us, the broken ones.

And for the ones who broke us in two.

Nikita Gill, We Used to be Happy

She speaks to me fondly of passions and talents, guitars and stars, then stops short and apologises for speaking at all. All because somewhere in her life, someone she loved broke her heart by ignoring her beautiful words and telling her to shut up, keep it down, nobody cares.

People aren’t born sad. We make them that way.

She was beautiful before you said it. She was happy before you knew her. She has been loved before you told her. She owes you nothing, but she loves you anyway. So stop trying to make her feel lucky to have you.

Nikita Gill (via untamedunwanted)

No one warns little girls
how boys with such pretty eyes
who smell like smoke,
who taste like rain,
who talk like silver,
are reasons behind
tear soaked pillows,
half finished poems
and so many sad dreams.

Rainbow Fragments on Spider Webs

The entangled pearl necklaces pictured above are actually droplets of dew on a spider web.
The subtle colors displayed here resulted when sunlight illuminated the web, creating a multitude of rainbow fragments. Note that, in general, the smaller dew drops, residing on the thinnest silk strands, are nearly colorless.
With these smaller drop sizes, wave interference acts to diminish coloration because colors tend to overlap one another.
