Untitled Poem

Ask me anything   Submit   My Art   

Hi, i'm Raquib. Designer/Photographer from Columbus, OH. I like poetry, typography, & photography. I'm passionate about humanity, love & coffee. That pretty much sums it up.

"sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent"
— Dalia Lama

thepostpoetry:


life is backwards. 
when you hang out at a bar, you take a shower to 
cleanse the smell of cigarettes & beer from your hair. 
when your heart is broken, you drink yourself to
oblivion until you cleanse the painful memories from your brain. 
well, my hair covers my brain; 
i thought if i rinsed them both with hot water, i would be able to cleanse every inch of my existence. 
it’s been months since i saw you, and i still smell like
your second beer on a wednesday night, after work. 
why did i allow you to trace my skin?
why did i bring you to the bar with all of my friends?
you are not the one who smells of empty bars & love lost. 
it is me. 
it is me with the childhood issues. 
it is me who is still attached. 
life is backwards. 
i never drank before we broke up
and now i drink enough to file for divorce. 
the most backwards thing of all is that 
i never wanted you
and now, i always wanted you.

Malena Valcarcel is a Spanish artist based on the Mediterranean Coast, working for years in the paper field, using it to create Book Sculptures, Paper Jewellery and elaborated constructions. 

I live in Alicante - Spain, next to the beautiful and warm Mediterranean Sea. I was born in Tenerife – Canary Islands where I grew up without losing sight of the sea.
I actually have no formal training in anything to do with paper or my paper art established work, I have learnt everything myself.
I have tried many areas creatively over the years and now I find myself working with paper which I adore.

Monday typography quotes 57

There are seven days in the week and someday isn’t one of them. So stop watching and start doing, read more books and get busy or at least die tryin’. You will never stop learning and the way you are and react in situations is the right one, not always but you must know what you want.
