23h jacquell

jacquell Crying alone on a foreign land. Perhaps it's something so achingly beautiful that I can only feel when I'm mad young with so much of mistakes, expectation, dissapointments and insecurities. How come the sunset is so different eventhogh I'm just staring at the same sun, from different continents? There it was joyce before the night falls. Here is just a sweet melancholy before i swallow it all, together with my useless reminiscence. 23h

jacquell When the lover was gone,
My soul was eroded
For she was a thunderstorm
Of so much emotion

jacquell She was new to the cat gang in my university as I never saw her before around the campus. Ofcourse she was shy. She never dare to approach any human beings. I have been feeding those stray cats with the leftover foods from the restaurant and she only came to eat when I was at least 5m away. Just yesterday when I walking out of the art department, she was there waiting for me along the sidewalk and slowly followed me to the usual spot where I left the foods. Still she didn't let me touch her but when I was taking picture, she stopped and stared at me for a while. Like this. It felt like my heart skipped a beat. 2w

jacquell In Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain grom an old would." It's a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time mahone. It goea backward and forward, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again." - Don Draper, "The Wheel"

jacquell "Khi bạn chưa trở nên thoải mái với việc ở một mình, bạn sẽ không thể biết được rằng bạn đang chọn người đó vì tình yêu
hay vì cô đơn." "If you haven't feel comfortable to live on by yourself in solitude, you would not know if you choose that person because of love, or loneliness."

jacquell Once i was 25
Empty Veneto street
in a mid summer night.

All i had was an empty pocket
some uncorked bad wine
He passed me half of his cig
Said, there is only us
under the neon lights.

And all I could see was
a curious nakedness
an empty desire
an utter defeat
beneath his sunken eyes.

#Toyou

jacquell For the little things we all love.
It lays in the daily brush strokes
or the common thoughts that we share.

Somehow, when I stare at you,
your glance,
your hidden smile.
We both know that we will soon die. We shall soon leave.
But when we do, we shall pack all the little things we used to love
together or not,
in the little purse we hide in our unconsciousness

I will see you here, and there
I will hear you, near or far
I will keep hitting the rewind button
I will keep me flow with nostalgia

In my shattered dreams
In my unspoken words
In the reflection of my morning tea
In the foam of my late beers
In the illusion within my smoke
In the silence of my eloquence
Mon cheri, You are here.

jacquell AS THE MIST LEAVES NO SCAR

Ad the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill,
So my body leaves no scar
On you, nor ever will.

When wind and hawk encounter,
What remains to keep?
So you and I encounter,
Then turn, then fall to sleep.

As many nights endure
Without a moon or star,
So will we endure
When one is gone and far. - Leonard Cohen

jacquell “Not enough people understand that love is an emotion that willingly allows weakness. It makes room for people to be, people.
It leaves space for growth to come from pain, inexperience & fear.”

jacquell I don't usually return tags but once one of my best friends 'requires' me to do so I simply cannot say no.
20 things about me, return to @hiyoanhle

1. I tend to swear a lot in daily conversation and I wish I could swear fluently in Italian. Its does rhyme.
2. Love being underwater or above the clouds.
3. I started to draw since 3 and until now, 95% self-taught.
4. I did scuba diving before knowing how to swim.
5. I think women without boobs are extremely sexy. Praise to Freja Beha.
6. I ️ surprises and easily get surprised.
7. My steak has to be bloody as hell.
8. I hate fast foods and softdrinks.
9. I cook Italian foods quite well and my best dish is vongole pasta.
10. The best energy drink to me is a freezing cold
11. I have short term memory but fortunately, it leaves me enough space for memories I don't want to forget and I can easily recall them just like hitting the replay button.
12. Morning sunshines, a hot cappuccino and biscosti make me feel blessed.
13. Quite antisocial but I can go all wild and crazy with people I love.
14. I still read manga. When im bored or depressed, manga and wine are my best remedy.
15. Having a love that worths remembering a lifetime is important to me, at least.
16. Met most of my best friends online. Some lasts more than a decade already.
17. I'm a hopeless romance.
18. I'm agnostic.
19. Always fall asleep on highways.
20. I love the smell of rosemary and bread.

And i want to know more about you as well. Reply it if you feel like <3

jacquell I am getting there to the point where everything I see will be just a fragment of eternity wrapped in a ephemeral instant. I don't know. Sometimes I feel lost. For everything i thought would last for lifetime but eventually all I get is just a handful of memories that already belong to the past. A familiar face, such tender voice, the smell that once lingered in the air, the meals we had, the feelings we shared, tears we swept, pains we agonized. Together or not together.
Nothing is here anymore.
