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?
When was the last time you really spent some quality time with your old friends?
We all know that through time, changes, and social media, some friendships stay the same while others change - eit...
I can never really get rid of you,
No matter what I do
or how I should often lie
while trying hard not to cry
You’ve always been there
You still are
Sometimes I’m scared
because you’re nev...
Sometimes, you don’t really miss the job. It’s the colleagues that you miss.
Well, at least most of them.
I’m denying my natural rights to fall apart
This world always demands a fight
with all my might
I don’t always know
the next levels I should go
There’s no turning back
even when I sometimes feel ...
I’ve never asked for any of this. When I first saw you in the crowd, I should’ve looked away. I should’ve pretended you weren’t there.
Then again, fate works in mysterious ways. As cliche as it s...
She hates to love in silence
like doing the solo dance
It’s just her and her own shadow
another lonely day and night to go
Oh, how to tell you so?
She still doesn’t know
This role is too damn fam...
Alright, I’m just going to be short about him. Reveal him too much and there’ll be dire consequences to that. (I mean it.)
I met ‘Ash’ at a poetry event. After a few occasions, he started asking ...
If you only knew
what I’ve been too scared to tell you,
what would you do?
If I were much braver for what’s painfully true,
would you say our budding friendship is through?
Such an old familiar f...
I’m aware that I haven’t really written much and about my own life lately here. It’s been a very long time and a lot of things are happening all at once.
Honestly, for the past three months or so...
Are we in the era of escalating vanity?
So many strike a pose
It’s where anything goes
Once or twice ain’t enough
There’s always that extra dose
Like, selfies and Photoshop
Online purchases ‘til ...
I looked at the clock in the waiting hall that afternoon. It was past after three. Silence was deafening.
Looking at my hands, I heard approaching footsteps. I was still staring at my badly chewe...
Against my will
I caught your presence
Time stood still
breeding a new conscience
Against my will
These eyes stopped blinking
The heart in for the thrill
The existence of a foreign sensation
“I just want you to always be alright and happy.”
“I hope you’re okay.”
“I always have good wishes for you.”
Don’t they sound sweet and endearing? They make you feel loved, eh? At first, that is ...
Mommy, I’m scared
We’ve talked about this before
briefly, but I was still being straight
to the point that worries you more
Mommy, I’m still scared
I still can’t tell the difference
between a mon...
You don’t have to hit her to hurt her. There are so many ways to cause her pain and you only need to take your pick.
You can start by not keeping your vow that you will always love her, no matter...
Perhaps you secretly wish I’d talk to you
the way I used to
like I fear silently
whether you’ll really listen to me
or just give me some more scrutiny
But what should we talk about?
Once again, t...
Last year on the first day of Eid, I did something pretty drastic and rather unorthodox. While most people would usually decorate their Facebook timelines with “Eid Mubarak” greetings and all tha...
She’s been dismissed
considered a freak and overly sensitive
‘though she believes
something’s got to give
She’s been heartbroken
fooled by promises then abandoned
but it has taught her ...
