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

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

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)

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)
