Birds fly high where I cannot see.
I was born to write. Now I know that. I’ve been writing for about ten years. At first, I didn’t know what poetry was. I started writing to just empty my head from thoughts, which were tormenting me. I’m not even sure if it’s poetry.
In many years I hid the poems in my drawer, didn’t let anybody read them. Suddenly, the day came. The day I wanted to show my poems to the world. I want you to read my writing. I want everybody to read it. I started publishing about two years ago on Tumblr, Instagram and Facebook. Creating a blog on WordPress is a next step to reach more people.
I’m not sure if I do it right. I’m not sure if my writing is either good or bad. I’m a complete amatour. Please don’t expect too much. I just know I can’t fight with it anymore. I can’t run away, can’t hide anywhere. Believe me, I tried to. I tried to push it away and close my mind on these thoughts. Didn’t work out. It will always find me, enslave me, and even kill me.
Mostly, I write about my own experiences, but some of the writings are inspired by movies, songs, books or someone else’s experiences. If you don’t understand some of my poems – that’s ok. Neither do I. If I wrote something incorrectly – I’m sorry. Forgive me all my mistakes, English is not my first language (I’m still learning).
What about photography? Photography is not only my passion, but it also complete my writing. The pictures I take express the feelings described in my poems. I create a world I want you to see, feel and live in. At least for a moment.
If you want to know more about me and my writing – just ask.
