Her Enthusiasm

“Hello…Hi…”, were the words we said to each other at first, And I thought my chest was about to burst. That was the girl who initiated the conversation, And all I was worried about, my first impression. I think it was a good one ’cause she didn’t hang up the call, Didn’t say anything weird…

Some Fortune

Why couldn’t I finish the race first, Was the question like an unquenchable thirst. If only, was I luckier to have more speed, All my hard work couldn’t satiate my greed. No matter how much I tried, my arms to swing, The first spot was what I couldn’t bring. Being the second irritated the most,…

A New Road

Thoughts clustered like a spider’s web, in mind, Choices of mine and all, by what was I defined. Did people’s opinions change my path, Or was I scared to face their wrath? Why didn’t I walk the road I wanted to, Like many before me, did I the mistake too. Should have made a decision…

A Resolution

“Hate.” He rolled over to his side. Clenched his teeth. Curled to the fetus position. Held his head with a hand and gripped his chest with another. Heartbeat was racing like a loosened mad horse. His head was going to burst open, he thought. “Hate.” “They hate you.” “Everyone does. Everybody hates you.” He kept…

Call My Name

Every time you called out my name, Never did I feel like it was lame. But now when my name is uttered by you, I have no other choice but to misconstrue. What must have happened is the question I always ask, Eagerly trying my best for this charade to unmask. Head over heels, were you…

“Hello. Mom?”

I hung up on her, over a small disagreement, Closed my eyes, took a deep breath and thought of her statement. I was being careless, she said, Not eating enough and not sleeping enough, did she dread. Sleep was the last thing on my mind, And eating was the second to the last, did I…

I..He..They

I looked at Him and He looked at me. Staring right into each others’ eyes was infuriating me. I wanted to stab him, gouge out his eyes, knock out his teeth. Just do the most violent thing that I could ever do to him. Probably kill him but I couldn’t. He was smirking at me…

Whenever God

Whenever I thought I was alone, you proved me wrong. Whenever I looked up to you, you’d always say, “I’ll tag along”. Whenever I lost hope in life, you put your faith in me. Whenever I questioned your principle, you’d say, “Trust in me, you dummy”. Whenever I strayed from the righteous path, you’d pull…

A Good Night

Is this the time to tease me? Or is it that you really want to please me? It’s so hard to guess what you think, When all my mind is lost when you blink. So come on, stop pulling my hair like this, And just let me sleep with a good night kiss. Ohhh, so…

Hope To Never Hope

From the early sunrise to the late sunset, I hope to get through my day without being upset. Waking in the morning has become such a burden, I always feel like my good old days have been done. To move every inch of my body out of the bed, Have never felt heavier, like I…
