Butterflies

Hyper-fixation on infinite avenues

Diverging endlessly—

trapped inside a single stream,

locked away from sea.

Feelings of my foregone choice

fleeting, falling feathers-

intersections of regret and rejoice

fall apart and together.

Straining, fading vision

strains and aches to view

sights that can’t be seen; potential pasts are new.

Hi, my name is Ria! I'm a junior at Barnard College of Columbia University, currently living in Manhattan.

I've always enjoyed writing and aim to express feelings and inspire others through poetry. My biggest inspirations for my poems are the "a-ha" moments that I experience, the fairy lights in my room, and words that I simply think just sound good together.

Thanks for checking my writing out! For project inquiries, shoot me an email at riamavin@gmail.com. :)
