Myself, Before Anyone Else (Poem #41)

I change my skin
every now and then
if we built sparks some time ago
I hope you know that it won’t last long
and you could’ve seen
that my smile is be genuine
and I could have loved you despite the flaws
and everything in between
however,
the moment you stepped on me
just for yourself
was the exact moment
that I decided to set you free.

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.

How About the End? (Poem #39)

On the first stages of love
we fill our lovers with everything
to have her breathtakingly impressed
it’s a pretty good start
but notice how it’s hollow after that

That’s the mistake between the both of us
we pour our hearts out to our first
on paragraphs, we make sure
the first sentence is too good
without bothering the impact
we place on the last Continue reading How About the End? (Poem #39)

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)
