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 ...
Let’s start with something cliche:
Time flies. Indeed, it does. Again and again, a lot has happened already before I have enough time and energy to write them all down here.
I guess that’s how th...
It’s not a matter of zero companionship
or being all gutsy with your independence
Perhaps it’s something vertical,
a room for that moment of absolute silence
“You’ve done this way ...
As a non-native speaker, I sometimes find English confusing. There are some expressions that I personally don’t always believe, like:
1. “I’m just saying.”
I can’t help this. Every time someone o...
It’s the same old, blood-thick dreams
creeping and crawling in my sleep
violent and deep
pushing me down under
somewhere in this bottomless black hole
lost in the dark abyss
A punch in my mouth
Jobs have been kind of slow and I am worried about money…like, again. I know I’ve got more time to write, which is good.
However, I still need to pay the bills. That can’t be avoided.
What can I ...
How can we identify monsters?
These days, every one seems more alike
Not all look creepy that they make you shudder
They can be harmless before that very first strike
How do we know which one is ...
That big black piano looks dusty in the living room. A week has gone by and I haven’t even cleaned it up.
I don’t even want to touch it.
That piano used to be very well looked-after, down to the ...
That piano is lonely,
longing for your tunes
Once upon a time,
this room was full of joy
with beautiful melodies
and you singing so lovely
Now that piano is lonely
No one’s playing
those jolly tu...
This happens to me sometimes. Whenever something tragic happens, I tend to have a delayed emotional reaction.
My first would be to stare at it right on, my face lacking expression. Then after a w...
From timeline to timeline
everybody’s got their stories
all the guts and glory
“I am a simple man
even with this new ride
from Papa’s old collection of cars
since he needs more space in ...
Thanks to Whatsapp, we can do a lot more than just texting each other. We can send cute emoticons, pictures, and videos. We can update our status and profile pictures.
Now we can also do a video-...
Between the jackpots and the blackouts
I saw your faces everywhere
My head was indeed full of heavy clouds
Some of you were already dead
and I was really scared
In and out of consciousness
So I ended up becoming a part of history last Saturday. I joined Jakarta Women’s March and attended The Pop Culture Impact at @America, One Pacific Place, afterwards.
How was it?
It was interesti...
I think I’m addicted to heartbreak
just another old routine
probably to help me become lean and mean
far away from where I’ve been
I suppose it’s what I can still take
since it’s always been the ...
