Aly noun | ah-lee : a 22 year-old woman made out of poetry, art, and architecture. She likes the smell of old books, the 1940s to 1990s era, the cold weather, and the idea of being not what people expect her to be. Note: Some of her works are under her pseudonym Aly Bone and her name Marie Alyza.
Here I am, a body rising from its graveyard, a soul coming back from the dead. “I am not a haunted house,” I tell myself as I collect the dust and the spiderwebs in every corner of my home. I remove all the things I no longer need, and I have realized that it was me who had abandoned this place. Not him, not them. Here I am, repainting the walls of my old home and planting seeds where my flowers can grow. The place is almost empty, but there’s a room now for change. Here I am, covered with dust and paint. I guess this is what it feels like to be okay again. Maybe this is life after death. - Aly, Under Construction
