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”

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)

Sorry for Needing You (Poem #31)

“It hurts to be needed.”
It was all you could mumble
after I said:

“I need you, to make myself wanted
so I can have someone to turn to
when he tells me it’s time for me to go

I need you, so I can feel pretty
so I can feel like I am enough
after he talks nonstop
about the girl who came before me Continue reading Sorry for Needing You (Poem #31)

Your Past Lover and I (Poem #30)

You had her a little too early
and I, a little too late

She was the kind that fills up your mind at 3 AM
with words she wished she could’ve said thru her hands
and when with her you thought you were done
you tossed her away
not knowing that with your actions
it’s still you who has to pay Continue reading Your Past Lover and I (Poem #30)

He’s Yours, What Are You so Afraid of? (Poem #29)

I am afraid that limits will be crossed
I am afraid that when I ask who will be his choice
coins will still have to be tossed

I am afraid that she’ll no longer be simply a threat
I am afraid that she’ll take over
that I’d be put on a shelf
because I wasn’t competent enough
and he had to choose who to love Continue reading He’s Yours, What Are You so Afraid of? (Poem #29)
