Quarter Past Midnight

Quarter past midnight and I'm still holding onto your letters. Hidden safely in a metal box on a dusty shelf. It feels as if it hasn't been too long since I last saw you. I still remember your perfume. How long has it been? 5 years, 3 months, 22 days and 9 hours. Not that... Continue Reading →

Sophisticated As We Are

Tilt your head to the side and think, does this inspire me? You think you look sophisticated, don't you? I'm at yet another art gallery today. I'm too busy with my own comments roaming in my head that I don't see the crowd of people around me. They're like beautiful and colorful flowers surrounding me... Continue Reading →

Fall in Fall

Little fireworks, little fireworks, Like holding crackers in your hand... This pulsing vein, this dilated eye, Calm down so I can think... Little butterflies, little butterflies, Nervous breakdowns with childish giggles... Rainy days and drying leaves... I'm welcoming autumn with a crooked smile. I'm stuck between saying farewell to iced lattes and welcoming a new... Continue Reading →

Lavender Nights

Here I am welcoming tonight from the sparkling Bosphorus Bridge... I feel like I've been here before... And I have. But I was passing by like a blur and my thoughts were miles away with you... Tonight I rediscovered myself... I feel... I feel like the full moon... On a night as bright as this... Continue Reading →

Liquid Courage

Paint me a picture Let your branches reach my leaves Let me embrace you like the sea Let the sun touch my cheeks Let the rain wash all of our worries Let the waves carry me home Let the time flow till I reach you Let me open my eyes and see you Paint me... Continue Reading →

Dear Heart-breaker

Dear Heart-breaker, I realized that you never know who's going to leave an impact in your life. Good or bad, people influence us. You have influenced me mostly good but lastly bad. I know I can't just forget the good memories and think of the one bad thing that happened at the end... But you... Continue Reading →


Waiting here outside in the rain so late, Trying to figure out why you don't get it, It's been two whole months I'm trying to say it, Two whole months.... I'm trying to say it.... With you or without you, I will continue living through, With you... My heart doesn't ache. Without you... My life... Continue Reading →


How can I sleep when my mind is awake in daydreams and not after midnight thoughts... I turn right, I turn left... I hum an old song and wonder if it is insomnia... I toss and turn a little bit more but no avail... I still have you in my thoughts. I envy the moon who... Continue Reading →


Where am I? The sheets are cold and I can't move a muscle... Perspiration all over my skin... Worry in my eyes, scanning everything around... Heart beats quickening... Swallow the less crazy words before you scream out the real crazy questions... Do you ever wake up numb?... Like you're chained to your bed... Like you... Continue Reading →

Seagulls of Istanbul

If you're in Istanbul, by the coast and looking for a friend (mostly to share your bagel), I'm here for you. It only takes one piece to call me. Seagull is my name. I'm more of a fish kind of  bird but you know, a bagel or two won't hurt. Remember how your mother used... Continue Reading →

Poetry Podcasts

I know we haven't exactly met in so many years... sometimes the miles of distance between us felt like a telephone cord... and sometimes I wrote letters for you like we were living in the 70s. I never sent the letters... I just kept them sealed in a drawer. Out of sight, out of mind?... Continue Reading →

Repetitive Days & Second Chances

On days like Mondays you're far away... You probably can't even leave your cosy bed to come and bother me. "Arriving at my home town after so long makes me feel nostalgic and a little broken."   On days like Tuesdays you're almost at my door... You probably couldn't find the right words to say...

Q: What is one thing that you would like to change about yourself?

If I could change one thing about myself, that would be my attitude. Everyone has a different attitude towards life, some of them are cowards, others are sticking to the rules but mine is a bit rude. Some would say that I am a strong, persistent and confident woman that takes no interest in objection.... Continue Reading →
