Life As A Writer

Michael Daaboul. 26 y/o from Australia/Melbourne. Digital Designer & Creative Writer.

What goes through your mind? How many thoughts, ideas and passengers have past you by? How many have gone past your mind’s eyes? How many thoughts will remember your creative smile? How many ideas will forget your inspiration? How many passengers will walk past your heart? How much can you take, before you are out of your mind?

You’re certain everyone else stares at their ceiling, you’re absolutely positive you’re not the only one falling asleep while looking at the ceiling hours before you become tired. All this pressure, all the expectations and the pain, I’m certain everyone else is in bed staring, hoping the pain of today is not as bad as the pain tomorrow will bring.

I have been sleeping for a long time while I have been awake. I have been dreaming in this state for as long as I can remember. I’m tired and I have become mad and weary. I’m becoming someone who I don’t want to be, I really don’t and I can feel the frustration and disappointment, all this inevitable anger. It’s not me I tell you, it’s not. When I’m awake, I hurt. When I sleep, I hurt. When I dream, I hurt. I wonder in death if I can wander without being hurt, if I can finally rest.

"I'm Not Perfect," Said the Prince to the Princess

Prince: I come to you asking for forgiveness.
Princess: But you haven't done anything wrong! Or have you?
Prince: I haven't my dear.
Princess: Then why have you come for my forgiveness?
Prince: Because I am without fault. I fear I will disappoint you someday.
Princess: Don't fear that my love. Do you love me?
Prince: I do.
Princess: Let your heart guide you then, if you truly love me, you can do no wrong.
Prince: But I'm not faultless.
Princess: You don't have to be. As long as you keep me close to your heart, I can live with all the flaws the world can throw at us.
Prince: Can you live with my flaws?
Princess: Why do I want someone that's perfect? That would mean I wouldn't have your flaws, which means you wouldn't be you.
Prince: Perfect is perfect though!
Princess: Perfect is perfect, but I didn't fall for perfect, I fell in love with your flaws.
I will show you mercy because I have felt how much pain this can cause. I will let you go because I know it’s what you truly want. I won’t hold on, if your heart wishes to let go. I won’t cling to you, if you have unhooked your claws. I’ll show mercy because I know what it feels like when your world is ripped apart and all you can do is stand there watching helplessly. I’ll show mercy because I know what it feels like to be with someone you don’t want to be with.
