Different Lives (Poem #40)

She slept tonight
holding her pillow tight
on the other side of town

He fell asleep with his arms wrapped
around the girl he thought he’d end up with

It was more of a coincidence
when they woke up one morning
bumped into each other
complete strangers who later on
ended up sleeping years later
with arms wrapped around each other.

Should’ve Started at the End (Poem #39.5)

We began like beginnings are all that matters
I know love stories are written by ourselves
I just wish we started mild
so we wouldn’t burn out fast
I mean, it could’ve been so much better
if we’ve written the ending first

How About the End? (Poem #39)

On the first stages of love
we fill our lovers with everything
to have her breathtakingly impressed
it’s a pretty good start
but notice how it’s hollow after that

That’s the mistake between the both of us
we pour our hearts out to our first
on paragraphs, we make sure
the first sentence is too good
without bothering the impact
we place on the last Continue reading How About the End? (Poem #39)

The Girl Who Rarely Speaks (Poem #38)

There was a girl with a regular voice
and not using it was her choice
to her mother she never said
“buy me this” and “buy me that”
instead she crossed her fingers and thinks
“I hope she does”

The girl grew up to be a fine young woman
when people ask why she seldom talks
her friends would say, “she’s just too shy” Continue reading The Girl Who Rarely Speaks (Poem #38)

The ‘What If’ She Feared (Poem #37)

“What if he turns out to be a jerk after a few months?”
that was the question she asks herself the most
she has seen how gentle he acts now
a few months passed and he stayed the same
she got a grip of herself and said
“maybe a few months more”

Continue reading The ‘What If’ She Feared (Poem #37)

Ignorance (Poem #36)

Remember how you cried for the one that you lost?
Remember how you shrugged at their existence
but broke down when you noticed their absence?

How dare you plead to turn back time
you had your chance
and you let it all glide Continue reading Ignorance (Poem #36)

It’s Dark Without You (Poem #35)

On the very first day of your absence
it was like my mind and my heart collided
I was blinded, black all over
it was the kind of darkness that made me certain
that it will be dark forever

On the first month of your absence
both my mind and my heart fell apart
later on got into an argument between:
“forget him now, I just can’t and I’d rather not”

On the 3rd month of your absence
my mind surrendered and the heart prevailed
but sadly, no matter the victory
both remained in despair Continue reading It’s Dark Without You (Poem #35)

Against You (Poem #34)

It has always been you and me
against all odds
you’d hold my hand
or gently wrap your arms
and that would have me thinking
how close I am to a fairytale
but just like tales with ups and downs
there came a point that I loathed
having you around

Your gentle hands around my neck
became ropes claiming possession
which I longed to escape

Just like a puzzle piece out of place
or a cup of coffee on a summer’s heat
there’s something about us
I bet is most likely a mistake
between us, something is just off Continue reading Against You (Poem #34)

I Wish You Would (Poem #33)

She asked you to paint the town red
you took off in less than a minute
and did exactly what she said

When once she fell silent
because of something that you’ve done
you tried to cure her in an instant
you got on your knees
with just a snap of her hand

That was 6 months ago
and you are mine now
but still I wonder
how could such thoughts haunt me
even when I am wrapped by your arms Continue reading I Wish You Would (Poem #33)

His Fairytale (Poem #32)

You fed your girl the poisonous fruit
through I love yous, and I do toos

You handed the poisonous apple yourself
when you placed her on the shelf
so you could chase other girls

You alone should be blamed
when the poison kicked in
when it numbed her heart
and erased all the traces
of where love has been Continue reading His Fairytale (Poem #32)
