I just discovered this young female writer/poet that I instantly love her words. Her name is Warsan Shire. She’s a moslem, so you may found quotation from Al-Qur’an in her poems. You can check her writings at warsanshire.tumblr.com.
One of her writings that captivated me the most is a poem which titled “34 excuses for why we failed at love. This later adapted as a short film. A very beautiful black-white movie, although resonates sad and deep feelings. Of all 34 excuses that were stated, I love 14 of them. I screen-captured 14 of them, taken from the short movie, and attach here for you.
Since you love to free-interpret all of my sayings and actions, I want you to read it without any suspicions, and take it as a beautiful poem as it is. 🙂
Not your everything (because it’s tiring becomes someone’s everything)*,
