You will know that I love you
even when I don’t say it
not even out loud
or even when I’m still way too proud
That fact, I have to admit
I still own it
Sorry, I’m not making this...
Having met you was a bad luck. Knowing you was a mistake.
Having been with you was an equal match to insanity…even for a while.
Yes, they all say I’d made that mistake when I was with you. They s...
Half the sound is faintly barricaded
as I turn to the left
The other half is still safe
as I turn to the right
I fear of slowly losing the ability
to enjoy music and voices
slowly consumed by thi...
“Bibi, where’s the cake?” asked my little niece Gira on the fourth of November. “We should sing a ‘Happy Birthday’.”
“Aww, honey. I’m afraid there’s no cake like that for tonight,” I gently told ...
There’s nothing wrong with us, my love. Our hearts have been drawn to each other’s, united since Day One. I didn’t know why God had this plan for us.
God? You’d always given me that amused expres...
Where did you get the idea
that it was about comfort?
Where’s your empathy?
Your statement has caused a lot of hurt
How could you ask such things?
Why second-guess the victims?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. With your last family portrait, I can say less.
It is Eid-ul Fitr, when families and relatives gather in the same house. Feasting and chatting, excha...
Oh, I’ve had it with your sick, sappy love songs
Why should I hear them all day long?
Wherever I went, they were up in the air
demanding that I should care
Don’t you have anything else?
Nobody asked you to be tough, to always stand tall for everybody. I didn’t know where you’d gotten the idea from.
A few months after your father’s funeral, you moved out. That new job was located...
I believe there’s a reason
your shattered heart’s been revealed
even when you refuse to mention
or worry you may never heal
I know I’m just a stranger
in this other part of universe
I don’t even ...
Your hungry eyes have always scared her. Every time the two of you hung out, that was how you stared at her.
You looked at her as if she was…food. Shamelessly, you even stated with that weird ton...
You complain about my hair
You make me want to swear
or the chubbiness in my cheeks
which somehow gives you the creeps
Then you go on with my nose
as if that isn’t close
to insulting my appearanc...
For a very long time, probably most of my early life, I’ve never really cared for any beauty pageant contests. If you look at me, you’ll probably assume that it has something to do with the fact ...
I know you didn’t mean to see me through
It’s something you can’t help
and what you wish you never had
That was what you said that night
when we decided to reunite
How are you, o...
To my dear expatriate friends in Indonesia,
I am writing this to let you know what I have been feeling for so long. You see, I love hanging out with you. I love making friends with many people. T...
with your life figured out
Opportunities are there
You get to do anything and go anywhere
Flaunt your college degree
perhaps some scholarship from another country
Still, that’s not...
How odd, isn’t it? You learn something about yourself from pain.
When you were still a toddler, your mother took you to a clinic for a vaccination. You don’t remember much, but she said you’d alw...
Are you coming home tonight?
I’m waiting for you
I’d rather stay up
because your phone cannot be reached through
Where are you now?
The last time we talked, you sounded scared
It’s been hours and...
Sometimes a soul wanders
to find somewhere safer
not in the shape of a building
a house full of material things
A soul can fear a mirror
where the reflection might cause dread and terror
A soul c...
I know I still have enough money to last for this month and at least half of the next.
However, I’ve got to keep moving on. I’ve got to keep making more money - either through full-time, part-tim...
I mind my own business
I do hang out with the boys
It’s all my personal choice
but I’m no prissy princess
Why are you judging me so low?
Do you even know me so?
These are my bros
This message goes out to all of you, fighters and supporters who have been strong and patient enough - no matter how hard:
Thank you. Thank you very much for sharing your stories last night. We o...
Oh, you’re so dying to be right
assuming us in complete denial
clearly begging for that spotlight
Your accusations are beyond wild
way out of line
All in all,
you’ve gone too personal
Why keep pu...
Disagreeing is one thing, while gaslighting is another. Constructive criticism is much more helpful than just plain accusation.
I love writing. I really, really do. I don’t just write for the sak...
Welcome to reality
Again, this is how you’re supposed to be
No more stupid sentimentality
It only makes you one weakling, cry-baby
They say speaking up is important
but why do they pretend?
