Slip – away

   So this is how it feels like. To no longer know why you’re trying. To not know why you’re fighting so hard.  Reasons dissolved, like dropping a salt rock into the sea. Feeling nothing but a hollow void. I cannot promise you things will be the same. This time, it took a toll on […]

Her – late night thoughts

I am tired of waiting around. Waiting for a reply of some sort. Tried of rationalising so much. Tired just tried. I’m not upset that you have other commitments. Family time. Work. What nots. We all have commitments. I don’t expect you to give me all of your time. But I do expect you to […]

From – his perspective

She left again. Without turning back or saying good bye. She wouldn’t even let me hold her. She is broken. I watched as she walked further and further away from me. I didn’t give chase. I didn’t know if she wanted me there. Went back up to the library to grab my things. I wanted […]

Remember – this

You are sitting on the swing this one fine night. A clear night where the stars twinkle in harmony, as if grooving to Gwen Stefani. Watch the lightweight clouds drift by, ever so gently brushing against the deep blue sky. This little game of hide and seek the stars play. Giggling as they hide behind […]

Unexplainable – sadness

   Ask me to describe sadness. And I’ll say I can’t. Sadness isn’t the tears that stream down your face. It isn’t the cries of helplessness. It isn’t the pain you feel when your heart is broken into a million pieces. All these are nothing but manifestations of sadness. Sadness stems from a place so […]

Dim – the lights

  When people talk about love, they talk about the sparks that fly. The unquestionable chemistry. The moment they knew it was forever. But no one ever talks about how fucking hard it is to stay in a relationship. Having to choose that same person day after day. On days he looks the best – […]

Managed – expectatios

Last night. This morning. Was magical. It was as if the past didn’t matter. Our debts were cleared. Our pain were forgotten. It was just you and me. That laugh I miss hearing. The subtle mocking that I didn’t mind. Losing myself in the comfortable silence is something I wouldn’t mind doing over and over […]

After – you

Maybe love just works like this. Maybe even after all these time, I will still miss running my hand through your hair. Leaning on your boney but broad frame will still be my favourite thing to do when I am with you. Tilting my head to your neck and catching a whiff of your shampoo. Head and […]

Dark – and twisted

It feels like I have been taken back in time. To the time when everything I slipped through my hands. I laid there watching familiarity fade into the distance. I inhaled once deeply. The scent that lingered around dissipated. I took a second breath. It wasn’t there. My trachea constricted and I gasped for air. Third. […]

Once – I was twenty

Once I was fifteen years old, I understood what it meant to go wild, be crazy and have fun. Once I was sixteen years old, I understood what it meant to fall in love and succeed in something you worked hard for. Once I was seventeen years old, I understood what it means to have […]
