España

I went to Spain, and I fell in love. I fell in love with the clear full night sky, soft warm winds, distinctive smells, and the feels of the dirt underneath my feet. Spain, not all of you feels authentic anymore. It’s been changed by discomfort and need for discovery, but as time passed and…

Your Chapter

“I’m not entirely sure what it was?” I tell myself fully knowing that that’s a lie. I know exactly why. I know why I allowed you to stay past your expiration, why I let you warm my bed and heart a little longer. The addiction. The anticipation. The need. The rush. The lust. The Intimacy….

Excited. I’m excited to live. Let’s own our lives and allow ourselves to be happy. Happy Tuesday! Gabriela A Tejada **Follow my Instagram @astronomicalpoet & Twitter @Astropoet22 ** All images were taken by me unless stated otherwise.

The art of Silence.

It’s pretty interesting how my emotions tend to work, at least for me. Either I feel a lot or nothing at all. I can be okay one moment, and something can set me off, and I sometimes become a totally different person. It was a lot worse when younger, the older and more I’ve gotten…

August 9th

There is fear in understanding ourselves. The one constant person in our life, the one we usually know the least about. When we decide to sit and understand, we stand up naked. I’m in a phase of self-awakening. That means; reflection, vulnerability, rawness, and every other word you thought of when you read that short, but…

August 1st

The amount of personal growth and self-reflection that I’ve done the last two/three years makes me proud. Now, I say that as a 26-year-old woman who still has a lot more life to live, but I’m grateful.  I plan on posting more this month. I want to be vulnerable and allow you all into my…

July 13th

Is it that I feel too much too fast, depleting all of my reserves, or that it just was never enough? I’m not sure, but slowly I’m finding out. Gabriela Tejada **Follow my Instagram @astronomicalpoet & Twitter @Astropoet22 ** All images were taken by me unless stated otherwise.

June 7th

I can’t fully explain the way I feel yet, but I do know that I never want it to end. Happy Monday! Gabriela Tejada **Follow my Instagram @astronomicalpoet & Twitter @Astropoet22 ** All images were taken by me unless stated otherwise.

You have this ability of making me feel safe & heard. Like I can let the mask and shield drop from my tired body, and allow myself to stand naked before you without judgment or fear. Together in bed, you interlocked our hands as we kiss and that tender moment has been burned into my…

Mi Mar

As many of you who follow my writing know, very few places bring me peace and true joy outside of nature.  As a young girl, I remember the excitement that the sea would bring me, not so much the suntan lotion and crowded beach parties, but just the beauty and energy of its vastness. My…

Saturday, the 24th

My anxiety has been suffocating lately..  all consuming.  It wraps around me tightly, painfully, yet passionately.  Like a toxic lover, it holds me in a morbid but gentle embrace. We become so used to the comfort of our pain and traumas that anything but constant discomfort and anguish frightens us.  I think the reason why…

Wednesday, the 21st

A photograph taken in a moment of uncertainty and dread.  While beautiful, behind the camera, were distressed eyes filled with worry and heartbreak. How often do we take a moment to think about the person behind the lens, behind the pen..? It’s Wednesday, that means we are halfway through another week. So far, I’ve been…
