42 folds to reach you

I wrote a letter to let you know how the year went by and the events that unfolded, leading me back to you   You are far away, amongst the stars and eternal nights Beautiful and pure You tend to hide, with one side in the dark but alas, we see you still   I wish […]

Beautifully sad

Why do we often find beauty in sadness? Do we find humanity amid all the pain and suffering? Does it remind us that we feel, that we are mere mortals with flesh and blood? Perhaps it is a way of saying that “hey it’s ok”, we don’t have to be strong all the time.

You are not perfect

You are not perfect The world is full of hotter, prettier, cuter others   But your eyes smile — so gently, when they look at mine   Some days, they sing a sad tune, when our eyes meet, after sharing stories untold   And your smile shines on me like midnight’s sun, unraveling the darkness […]

Everything

You are everything and everything is you   The streets, the couple’s loving gaze, delicious food, new possibilities, old memories, the music that never ends, the smell that refuses to go away from my bed, the night, my dreams, the moon, the bus, my guitar, your songs, the whiskey we last drank, my face, you kissed, my […]

I miss you

And I miss you these words are perhaps one of the most profound combination ever, along with the ranks of i love you But for today, I miss you   I miss you not knowing why, or how No, surely I know why, but articulation has lost its meaning and clarity has lost its bearings […]

Missed calls after an eternity of absence Were you drunk and let your guard down?   I will never know as that moment silently crept passed me while I was asleep from crying out for you   For now I will be content to know that you missed me enough to call and I was […]

I had a bizarre dream

I had a bizarre dream of you It wasn’t even you, but it had to be you I loved you in the dream, the same love in reality, even though you, were nothing like you You were a baby, you were a middle school kid You were constantly lost, Or rather I kept losing sight […]

Love is a cancerous cell

I still miss you Is it going to heal Would writing nonstop and annoying all these people help to forget you, to forget the pain, to forget the love No it wouldn’t, for love is ingrained in our DNA it doesn’t matter how much time has passed they lay dormant like cancer cells, waiting for […]

Dreams IV : I did not dream of you

I did not dream of you, like I usually do Instead, I dreamt of other girls It’s kind of hazy now but I was laughing with them The mood was pink-ish, too happy, too unreal   Perhaps I want to be happy, subconsciously, as all humans hope It feeds me with illusions that I could be […]

The words you said

  They still ring in my head the words you said it resonates through my body like sound waves do   The words you said I collect them in my head copying and pasting snippets from sentences that my subconsciousness deemed interesting enough Sometimes I question why, the selection wouldn’t have made it past my […]
