This stage should not be skipped,
yet many often get past it,
in the name of love from another
in hopes, the one will stick around longer,
if not forever.
I’ve made that stupid mistake
of loving ...
Have I been stuck in my deep-dark slumber?
Still, my conscience is frayed by their distant, calls of prayer.
Wake me up, let me not sleep without,
‘though I sometimes still find myself awake in a...
It’s a huge thank you to all of you,
Dearest Elders In The Family,
Peaceful-Loving Cousins too
for having finally seen us through.
First of all,
thank you for not wondering
why we’re so fat and s...
All hopes are lost
The last bit of oxygen’s out
They say you’ll never return
This is officially your final mission
So, the vast ocean has claimed you
There’s nothing left for us to do
Some may st...
Oh, how we long for you to be
returning home, still healthy
after having sailed away
leaving us waiting by the bay.
The vast ocean hasn’t shown
any signs that you’re still around.
We refuse to ge...
I am way past that envy
or that so-called jealousy.
Just a silent observer
to the oblivious or ignorant
to the fact that we’re all different
and the universe always has a way
to randomly pick you...
Let’s just face it:
There’s no such thing as unconditional love.
Either Billy Joel or Bruno Mars –
or perhaps some who do the cover versions,
somebody must be lying when they sing:
“Just the way...
You don’t know me well enough
especially to live my life
to make such short-sighted assumptions.
That’s okay, though.
Everyone’s entitled to their own opinions,
no matter how flawed.
You don’t kn...
That is one question
you may never have the guts
to say out loud
here, right to my face.
You can’t fool me with your expressions.
Your eyes narrow.
Your lips purse.
I bet you’re holding back thos...
How to hold oneself,
keeping it together,
when before you they shiver?
You could be the living legend
who brings them excitement
or you could be the nightmare
their past, present, or future trial...
If age is just a number,
then why does time feel smaller?
Space is no longer
as wide as we once experienced.
Before the digits,
life seemed to give us so plenty,
that we could spare a minute
They say patience is a virtue
and fairy tales aren’t true.
There’s no such thing as ‘love at a first sight.
Such a childish mentality isn’t right.
I know we’ve just met
but there’s this feeling t...
Like going out alone at night
without wearing any gloves and masks
during this pandemic era
when infection cases are sky high.
Like feeling indifferent
when the one you love
chooses another man o...
How boring is your life
On a scale of one to ten,
that you wish for an accident
but still don’t want to die?
Be very careful what you wish for.
Once it’s granted,
there’s no repeat.
You can actua...
My mother couldn’t find the words
for those strange feelings I had.
She wondered why I’d cried as a little girl
at the sight of the street beggar
covered in ghastly wounds.
My best friend was con...
I try not to experience
your loss and sadness
as everyone moved on,
or away, not staying long.
Too many statements
that begin with:
“Once upon a time…”
“This used to be…”
“Do you remember when…?”...
The world outside?
It can be chaotic.
God Does What God Likes.
What we break, God May Fix
or Leave Shattered, just like that.
At least I’m safe,
also warm within.
The giant shower is on,
It turns out
a decade and more
are still not enough
to know you as a whole.
I can still see the beauty in your soul,
hear the gentleness in your voice.
I can even imagine your warm emb...
This is why Time Machine is only fiction
You can only look back
to search for what you’ve lacked:
Words you should’ve said…
Love you should’ve shared…
The lost moments…
No second chances…
I’ve decided to keep my old vow
that I shall never love
anyone like I’ve loved you.
No, please don’t say ‘wow’.
I don’t mean it as a compliment.
There’s still a lot about me, oblivious to you.
Once upon a time,
I told someone this critical line:
“If romance were a god,
I’d probably be agnostic.
I’d like to believe in it,
‘though it seems only happening to others,
while it feels like so...
“I love him. / I love her. / I love them.”
Yet this is not the first time,
you come to me with the same problem(s).
The endless fighting, the infidelity,
the abuse, oh-so-constantly.
I had the strangest, most vivid dream.
I heard your voice, faintly somewhere in the distance,
yet my phone was still off and charging.
Was it my imagination?
Was my mind playing tricks on me agai...
I think I’ve run out of sedatives
just to numb the pain within.
I know, they can be addictive,
but I can’t deal with my feelings.
These days, they can be overwhelming.
So, what do I do now?
Tell you what?
They’ll suggest that accept
that this has never been a perfect world.
One way or another,
we’re all bound to hurt,
so just deal with it.
Tell you what?
They’ll say it’s not alwa...
