Untouchable

I unzipped my skin and tore away
entire parts of me in my desperate attempt
to please you. Staring dispassionately,
your only remark was to note
what a mess I created.

Hello and welcome to my page~ My name is Larisa--a very common Slavic name that was either derived from the Latin word hilaris, meaning "cheerful," or from the Greek city of Larissa, meaning "strong fortress." Born in Ukraine, I emigrated with my family to America when I was still a small child and now make my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up immersed in two vastly differing cultures led me to have a burning curiosity about people all over the world. Stemming from said curiosity, I have fallen in love with traveling to other countries, meeting new people and delving into their culture, exploring new cities, and of course, dining on the local cuisine! If I cannot escape into a different country, then my next favorite method of adventure is to lose myself in a spectacular book. I enjoy books of all genres--from fiction and novels, to biographies and ethnographies. As long as it captures my fancy and holds me spellbound the entire time, I will burn through the book like a forest fire! Because of this penchant for reading and travel, coupled with my love of deep and mysterious things, I have been often called a dreamer and I find the title suits me. With that being said, I invite you to stay a while, perhaps make yourself a cup of tea and linger through my posts and feel free to comment or share a thought :-)

      1. Yes. This is one of the reasons why I have told myself to not rely on other people to make me feel whole because it really does hurt. And I guess, one should become as your title suggests ‘untouchable’. That certainly is one of my ambitions! Yes, I tend not to focus on what people have to offer me instead I focus on what I can offer them. I would rather not let anyone in emotionally, to be honest. Hope this makes sense.

        1. It makes all the sense in the world. The only thing I have feared when closing myself off to people who have deeply hurt me is that by extension, I would not be able to feel love from anyone else and would consequently not be able to heal. It’s an intricate balance, remaining hard enough to establish where your boundaries begin and to hold them firmly, and yet soft enough to have compassion for others and bestow kindness liberally. Sometimes the things we wanted the most were the ones who were the most untouchable.

  1. Because, sometimes what we will do for another is that brutal.

    I love it when I click a link to someone’s blog and start reading and know that this blog is one that I will want to come back to. You write so beautifully and from the heart.

      1. Your poetry is a bit like my songwriting. It’s based somewhat on people and/or experiences but loosely. I find it’s a wonderful inspiration from which to develop ideas. My pleasure to read, as always. 🖤
