Once in a while,
It’s only a few steps away
just to get to you
yet it also feels like miles
perhaps even days
that I have to go through
Some other times,
it’s the cities we live in
at separate ta...
It’s always good to exchange news with people you know. However, we know that oftentimes, one thing still leads to another. What you believe a well-meaning advice or suggestion may sound intrusiv...
There’s no amnesty granted
Reach deeply into your pockets
their eyeballs jump out of their sockets
There’s no bravery
when it comes to being a bully
“You always smile. How come you manage to look happy most of the time?”
The Ex-Guardian of The Isolated Castle looked up. It was one of the young poets sitting with her in the hall. The boy looke...
Welcome to the country
of mixed messages
As all you can see,
we’ve been this way for ages
Nothing’s really free
Put your tongues in cages
It’s like them telling you
that you need to lose weight
THE WORDPLAY WARRIOR:
I’ve decided to brand myself this way. Why ‘The Wordplay Warrior’? At first, I was inspired by a fellow writer. He dubs himself ‘The Wordplay Wizard’.
Yes, that’s how I came...
You say it’s just a talk,
like normal people making a conversation
It’s part of being social,
despite the annual scrutiny and judgment
Have you gained weight?
Sorry, your change’s q...
We are the kind to enjoy quiet mornings. We can either walk outside or stay in. To you, we may look so ordinary, just like everybody else.
Then, what’s so different about us?
We are the kind to s...
How do you comfort
the one crying on the inside?
You can’t find the words
Nothing seems to sound right
You find yourself
captured by that smile
as if there are no traces of bereft
not even for a ...
What are the signs that you might be in love…and are scared of it? Wait, why are you scared? Isn’t it supposed to be good news? Shouldn’t it be something beautiful?
Well, yeah…in a way. However, ...
Say what you like,
do what you will
Let your words be the strike,
if you’re in for the kill
Say what you mean,
mean what you say
You think your conscience is clean,
but it doesn’t matter anyway
“Why do you seem to always fall for guys impossible to be with in the first place?”
What would you do if one of your friends told you that? How would you feel, especially if those words had been ...
“IS SILENCE ALWAYS EASY?”
(Dark Thoughts of The Bullied)
It’s more than a vacant space
or lack of expression on one’s face
It doesn’t contain nothing,
‘though it’s not always solid beings
At first, you may think this is another typical first date story. A guy takes a girl out on a date. They have a pleasant talk until it is time to order something to eat.
The guy orders the main c...
Perhaps I’m just jaded
This chaotic reality always gets to me
a lifetime war between worlds
where all pacifists long to break free
Maybe I need something new
a possibility, something true
I’m not trying to be modest here (because I already am, ha-ha. Nah, kidding. I try to be, though.) Still, let me be the first to say this:
Not all my writing stuff are good.
I love writing. Somet...
Oh, you happy people
Ain’t your lives wonderful?
With clarity and a smooth, daily plot
it seems you’re lucky with all you’ve got
Oh, you happy people
wrinkling your noses at tragedies
Alright, I’m not trying to copy Star Wars here. I just thought the title fits this entry.
Hail to the internet and the social media, despite ugly things people still do to each other.
I finally g...
I wish I’d be able to be around
tomorrow, just to celebrate your birthday
I hope you won’ t give me that frown,
because my presence is needed by my family.
Happy birthday, my dear sweet friend
It is like a domino effect. Anything that goes on around one’ life may turn upside down after that jump one night.
First, the people at the scene. Perhaps they just didn’t see it coming. Perhaps ...
The real-live beast can actually be very handsome
and act like a real gentleman
He pays for your meals
and buys you nice things
drives you home
and impresses your loved ones
…until that very day…...
Since living alone, I’ve been guilty for not having spent enough time with Ma. I have my reasons and she has hers - and we’re both pretty cool with this. We’re both quite independent and I’m prou...
We talk too much
but we’re losing touch
Nobody wants to listen
Every one wants to win the argument
We all have our reasons
but we care not to make amends
Oh, the exhaustion
Too noisy here
I’ve noticed that a lot of social media platforms have got their own memory features. You know, the kind that pops your older posts up on your timeline a few times or so. A year ago, three years ...
I’m supposed to be asleep
Even when I’m in bed
and tiredness slowly creeps in
it’s still hard to close my eyes
I wish I could pretend or lie
and just sleep well tonight
Despite all the ...
