The Most Personal of Them all

I always loved poetry, I never really emphasized that about myself, but since it became one of the most significant parts of me, I decided to speak about it. I always remember loving literature; I was always touched by Shakespeare and truth be told, I was obsessed with him in high school. Poetry, all of a sudden, became my drug. I can’t stress enough of how much it saved me, how many times words from other poets touched me in a way that’s unimaginable. I always thought I was a cold person because there was a period in my life where I would just go full on numb. I was broken, who am I kidding? I was shattered, and I didn’t even want to feel anything, I didn’t trust anyone, I didn’t trust even myself. I was just trying to protect myself from being hurt again, and I closed my doors. But then, Žiga (my boyfriend) happened, and I was opening myself up again. When life gives you a hard time, you really learn so much about yourself, your soul to be specific! I went through some hard time for the past month and poetry helped me with processing my emotions to the fullest. Well poetry and my friend Sara,  to who I will forever be grateful! What I learned in that process was that I’m one of the most caring, passionate, loyal and loving person and I know how weird that sounds, but I KNOW MYSELF now. I came around and rebuilt myself once again. Now I know, that I don’t need to hide my emotions or feelings and that I don’t need to pretend to be someone that I didn’t even recognize anymore! I learned that when I love, I love so hard that sometimes that deep feeling scares the sh*t out of me. I know that I’m babbling about my emotions, but poetry really helped me to understand myself and most of all to heal! I’m still working on that:’’ Forgive & Let go’’ part, but I hope in time I will manage to do just that! I know a lot of you will ask themselves what the hell is she talking about, but I really hope that one day, you fall in love with poetry the same way that I did years ago, and it becomes your savior!
