Dreams & New Beginnings

Dreams & New Beginnings

I have long since buried whatever dreams I might have had when I was a lot younger. Over the past few years, I’ve come to the decision that I’ll just live alone in a small cottage surrounded by a vegetable garden, chickens, cats, and a dog while I sip coffee by my window, reading a book, as an age-old record blasts from a cracky record player. But the events that transpired over the past year made me realize a dream…

The world had to be cruel for me to appreciate you. Though the life I’ve lived over the years taught me to be scared of having someone like you, I couldn’t deny that yours is the kind of love I have always prayed for. I am not a religious person, but I prayed for this. I prayed for you. Ours is a love that does not invalidate each other’s past; it does not judge, nor does it criticize the person…

Cigarettes and Airplanes

Cigarettes and Airplanes

You light up a cigarette As the dawn breaks You sat there Staring out to nowhere I could only wonder What’s going on in your head   This view of you Isn’t all too new You’ve sat there before As I lie on the floor   This isn’t new at all We’ve been through this Countless of times I don’t even remember When this view Didn’t ring goodbye   As the scent and smoke Filled the morning air I got…

Dear Chef… – An Open Letter

Dear Chef… – An Open Letter

How true were your words when you told me you’re not with anyone? I just really want to know. I’m a woman with issues on trust, I’m not the type to be played, I don’t like wasting time like that. So please, I’m begging you if you’re not sincere with your intentions just forget about me. Forget about whatever we talked about and let’s just live our lives the way we intended to before you swooped in out of nowhere trying…

I’m Sorry, I’m Trying

I’m Sorry, I’m Trying

I went on for years telling people, telling myself, that I don’t believe in love anymore when it was people that I meant. I don’t believe in being swept off my feet, I don’t believe in expensive weddings, and I don’t want to have a family of my own. Today, I finally admitted to myself after a long battle with my personal demons that I do want those things. Yet, despite my bravery in admitting that, I still fall short…

Feliz Año Nuevo 2018!

Feliz Año Nuevo 2018!

Happy New Year! WARNING: Extremely long and text heavy post ahead! The holidays proved to be quite a challenge for not only did I spend it (almost) all by myself but also because work has somehow taken over the time I wish I could have spent with my second family, my best friends. Although the last two weeks consisted of terribly busy work weeks, it was also filled with parties (No, I did not attend the office Christmas party again…

Last Days

Last Days

Long drives to nowhere Searching for never-ending satisfaction Phony smiles, pretending to care Trying so hard to keep this attraction   When the sun has set And the birds have gone to bed All that’s left is a picture of us Hanging by a thread   Left the car somewhere We smiled through the pain Uttering a silent prayer As we waited for the train   “Life’s gonna be better” That’s what you said Long train ride to nowhere That’s…

Christmas Lights

Christmas Lights

I have been meaning to write about you. I wanted to begin with that night we sat beneath the stars talking about anything under the sun as if I’ve known you all my life, forgetting the fact that all I know was that face, that voice, and that it was the first time we’ve actually spoken. I would have loved to chronicle that night like I have done so easily and so many times before of people who left me…

Yet Another Goodbye

Yet Another Goodbye

This old café, it looks new. They’ve changed the chairs and the curtains, too. But to me, this place is all but the same cause we sat here today where the afternoon sun graced the old table where we used to hold hands and smile at each other. This old café, it looks new. They’ve changed the color and the music, too. And though this place is all but the same, we sat here today looking at each other in…
