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

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

without bothering the impact
we place on the last Continue reading How About the End? (Poem #39)

Gift Ideas 2017

It’s not fun to empty your wallet and not get anything from it, but it really feels good to know that you emptied it because someone worth it is gonna get something from it. I was never a fan of giving gifts and shopping. Once, I gave a gift for someone’s birthday, I bought about four items because I couldn’t figure out what he wanted. So I bought four items (that time I am so financially stupid), and gave what I think was the best on the birthday, and I gave the other three the day after that when I finally confessed that I had a hard time looking for a gift. He said, “You shouldn’t have bothered.” Deep down I knew that he’s right.. I shouldn’t have bothered buying 4 gifts when I only need to give 1.

To save you time, and to save myself some time as well, I made a list of the gifts that I’ll be giving this Christmas. I haven’t bought a single thing for the people I’m giving gifts to yet. I am truly hoping that this will work out for me. I’ll make sure to post an update about how this will go. Continue reading Gift Ideas 2017

Love, Along With Flames

We focused on the now and disregarded the what if. Maybe that’s what young love is all about. Enjoying the ride while it lasts and not bothering to think of what may happen when everything passes.

We were so caught up with what we have now we forgot to think about what we could have next. It’s like we were walking in the middle of the dessert and drank all the water we have on the very first step. It’s like we poured every love we have now, and disregarded the fact that we both emptied ourselves.
