His Past Lover (Poem #10)

I have always hated his past
I once said,
“I am haunted by her ghost
could you please let her go?”

I clenched my fist
afraid that he might say no
but instead he said,
“I already did a long time ago”
and I sighed with relief Continue reading His Past Lover (Poem #10)

I Had To Stop (Poem #9)

Remember when i was madly inlove
thinking you’re all i could afford to love?

Remember when i hung
to every word you said

following your footsteps Continue reading I Had To Stop (Poem #9)

Make Sure It’s Really Love (Poem #8)

You have always been consumed
by the thought
of having someone to hold
someone to label your own
and to give yourself to
but darling, I’ve noticed
how you never bothered to listen
how you’ve always been too caught up
on your own problems
to realize that i am capable too
of being broken Continue reading Make Sure It’s Really Love (Poem #8)

I Just Hope This Happens (Poem #7)

I hope that the next time you’ll talk about love
your eyes will be shining
not from tears, but from happiness

I hope the next time his name’s brought up
your pulse will stay as it is
you wont flinch
you won’t close your eyes
you’d mention another name
and your face will light up again Continue reading I Just Hope This Happens (Poem #7)

After Her (Poem #6)

You’re probably smiling
for being free
drinks in the club
taking women

Scrolled your way
pass through Tinder profiles
and ended up on someone else’s bed
but among all those girls you tasted
why is her name
still in your head? Continue reading After Her (Poem #6)

You Should’ve Known (Poem #4)

Your night of pleasure
is my lifetime heartbreak
You should’ve known

Another set of lies
will eventually
just make my heart shatter Continue reading You Should’ve Known (Poem #4)

Today’s Mistake (Poem #3)

Caring has become so rare
people mistake it as flirting
or simply needing something

Loving has become so rare
that people carry around checklists
of distorted standards
blinded by what society thinks is lovable
everyone unqualified
are mostly left alone Continue reading Today’s Mistake (Poem #3)

Sorry Mom (Poem #2)

Mom,
I lied when i said
I was out with some friends
I gained your trust after all these years
I’ve been very careful not to break it

if you ever ask about what i did
all i could say is,
he made me do it Continue reading Sorry Mom (Poem #2)
