The Spaces In-Between

Sometimes when I look at everyone around me I find myself constantly being in this in-between space – and there I am all alone, alone, alone.

The Spaces In-Between


Trembling from the sight of it

Not because of the low temperature that engulfed her

but from having his heart waver

She could not be loved in halves

She demanded only to be loved as a whole

She deserved only that much

She didn’t come this far to only be half-loved again

It hurts too much to simply be a part of something

To exist as a half and not as a whole

When you look at me

do you see what I see?

Do you see what I hoped you were seeing?


Highly Sensitive Person?

To check out if this label applies to you, read through and consider the traits described below.

  1. An HSP has a finely-tuned nervous system – something that is thought to be inherited.This makes them sensitive to external stimuli that the average person can ignore or filter out.
  2. The HSP can find the world to be emotionally and physically draining. Thus they need to retreat, and have time on their own, in order to regain their sense of inner peace. They can still cope with pressure and a busy social life – but they need space and time to renew their energy.
  3. The HSP has a rich inner life, and they know how they feel and the differentreasons why. Their experiences are deep, intense and meaningful. However, this can leave them feeling drained and overwhelmed.
  4. The HSP has a tendency towards anxiety, worry, depression, fear, guilt, disappointment, sadness and regret. They tend to see the pain in life and are rarely superficial.
  5. He or she can identify with other people’s pain, and they can’t shake it off and move on with their life. Instead, it tends to weigh them down and keeps on playing on their mind.
  6. An HSPs nervous system is over-sensitive to music, noise, light and excessive stimuli. They are more aware of pain, have a strong startle response, and are easily awakened when they fall asleep at night.


Highly Sensitive Person?


‘No, my dear,
you are not
weak for being
“too emotional”,
for being
“too overly-sensitive”,
or “too soft.”
You are brave
and courageous
to have
your heart wide open,
and risk it get
beaten down by a world
that is often
too harsh
and sometimes
very cruel.’

  • I Find That People Who Feel Things Very Deeply To Be Absolutely Beautiful (k.m.)


The veins in the blood that runs through my hands

They tremble in your presence

They feel cold in your touch

And all I could do was smile

When all that I felt inside

Was someone smaller than who I already was

There you go again

With your smiles and your hugs

Which felt so wrong

And yet I’d crave for it

Why is this always a constant pattern

Deserving, or not

Who’s to say? 

With another lighted cigarette

I looked at it as it burns slowly, but surely

All that feels good is bad for you

And it’s bad, not simply because it is something bad

But because all good things (has to) come to an end



“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”

  • Andrew Boyd, Daily Afflictions: The Agony of Being Connected to Everything in the Universe


You ruined me

in the best way possible

And I was your willing victim

I knew you were bad for me

But I can’t stop

You’re a thrill

You understood

Your touches felt warm once in awhile

Your kisses felt like home sometimes

It’s like we enter a completely different realm every time we touch

But why couldn’t you trust me?

I would’ve loved you.
