On being alone…

On being alone…

There’s nothing wrong with being alone. Lonely as it may seem, it could also be a happy experience. It’s the perfect time to enjoy the peace and silence while you prepare yourself for the hustle and bustle of life ahead. ☺️ Good morning! Happy Saturday. 💋

Short-lived Rendezvous

Short-lived Rendezvous

I have to stop myself from creating and replaying scenarios in my head. I know how I’ll never be in those realistically painful reels receiving a smile from you, watching you laugh from the passenger seat again. No. Those are stock images and videos you and I made not so long ago pasted in a frame that could have been but never will. I will never hear from you, nor will I still try to reach out. You were the…

Musings Over Breakfast

Musings Over Breakfast

When was the last time I had an actual breakfast? When was the last time I was able to sit quietly alone reading a book I actually like without worrying that I’d have to be somewhere later in the day? Most of all, when did I last had a warm cup of coffee? So long ago that it feels new and surprisingly, I love it. Here’s to waking up early this 2017! ☕️ Good day!

For the 2017 Me

For the 2017 Me

I’m not exactly the kind of person whom you could easily introduce to a traditional family. I’m probably the kind of person your mother warns you about as I am filled with idiosyncrasies that no normal (whatever your definition of it is) person could ever fathom and accept easily. I am, like lovers and sad alcoholics, a poet. I adore art in every form and I am transparent. I could not pretend to like something I don’t or pretend to…

Tomorrow

Tomorrow

You make me want to wake up the next morning with a plan for my life. I don’t know you. In fact, I can spend my days not knowing who you are… yet, you know me. You can see right through me. You make me want to wake up the next morning wanting and craving to be loved. But I don’t know you. In fact, I am glad I don’t. I am afraid that you’re just a façade that has…

Hideaway

Hideaway

I don’t love you. At least not in the way that you used to know I do. But I am all passion and built up loneliness with a dash of nostalgia; Could either be something you’d come back for or regret. But I felt neither. Satisfied, though we were, it felt nothing but what it is. An act. Certain urges, to me, are but some things to be released but not to be held on to. So in the height…

On Self-love…

On Self-love…

As a child we are showered graciously with love and affection… Such is the case that love becomes a limiting act bound to a one-way cycle. As we grow older, the supply of what once was overflowing decreases and so most people tend to lose themselves; running around, seeking love in the arms of someone else. What the world once amiably gave becomes practically desolate. For we are only given such affection and taught to reciprocate it; but the world…

Letting Go…

Letting Go…

I remember how you walked in to the living room with me for the first time. That certain and genuine smile you wore that night gave me reasons to smile.   I felt so happy, you were, too. We sang, we laughed and on that couch we climbed, Drunk on rice wine, we set off through the night.   And when you walked out the door long after that, Wearing that certain smile but with sad eyes, I felt robbed…

Adrift…

Adrift…

My love is an ocean. Many men have sailed but sunk. Deep within the depths are debris. Broken, fragmented, scattered. I believe there’s too much rubble. So much that no one would dare, To do anything to stay afloat.

My Untold Pain

My Untold Pain

To this day, I still think of you. I still dream about you, of all the things that could have been and all the things that I could have done with you. I think of all the places we could have been to. You came in swiftly, I wasn’t even sure if I were ready, and though I never truly found out for sure, I still feel the pain brought by your sudden departure… Lately, I have finally opened up…
