I owe you more than you know,
And yet I the fool do not show.
At what is hard pressed to be expressing.
With this fear,
That is very clear.
I play the caution of my lamenting,
Where my mind goes, there I reside.
But what then does that make me?
A lost soul out at sea?
My words scatter and fail me,
And all that will be left is my actions to prevail thee.
So I simply float on this brazen blue,
Still at times my mind wraps around you.
Thinking, dreaming, and trying to understand,
That I need to change.
To be more,
Than a foolish man.

We almost made it
Hence the word almost
You left with no trace

Do you regret leaving?
I am a mess without you
Don't pretend we were nothing

You promised you'd be there for me
Only me
Unfortunately, you lied

Liquor is now your replacement
Eating seems pointless
After you left, everything lost meaning
Volcano meets tornado
Erase my foolishness

Maybe I still love you
Even now, when you don't deserve it

?

This is an acrostic poem I wrote a long time ago...

Yes I love you, but I'm not a fool anymore
Yes I love you, but it Really hurts
Yes I love you, but love, Im giving up.

Letting go isnt hard.

Saat itu mereka bertemu setelah Sally panik ketika ditelepon oleh bundanya Abram. Abram menghilang dan tidak dapat di hubungi. Sally menemukan Abram sedang duduk tak semangat di salah satu sudut taman kota. Sally tahu benar jika Abram sedang putus cinta. Itu membuat Sally senang dan hancur di saat yang sama. Senang karena Abram statusnya telah menjadi single namun hancur juga karena Sally paham jika Abram benar-benar mencintai dan sulit untuk berpaling dari seorang Lilly yang notabenenya adalah adik kandung Sally. Sally paham jika sejak dulu hanya Abram saja yang serius akan hubungan mereka dan Lilly sekarang menyia-nyiakan lelaki yang dicintai Sally sejak kecil. Namun Sally selalu menyembunyikan perasaan itu dengan baik. Sally memberikan tisu kepada lelaki yang sangat dicintainya itu. Abram menerimanya dengan senyum yang pilu dan tatapan yang menyiratkan permohonan maaf. Entahlah maaf untuk apa. Tapi sepertinya itu maaf karena sebenarnya Abram tahu tentang perasaan Sally untuknya tapi karena dia sangat mencintai Lilly sehingga ia mengabaikan perasaan Sally begitu saja. Setelah hening yang lama akhirnya Abram berbicara sambil menatap Sally yang hanya menatap ke depan dengan wajah seperti ingin menangis namun ditahannya.
“maaf Sal. Aku benar-benar minta maaf karena tidak dapat membalas perasaanmu.’’
Sally benar-benar enggan menjawab. Karena jika ia menjawab maka air matanya akan langsung jatuh. Abram benar-benar menyesal karena tidak bisa membalas perasaan teman kecilnya.
’’Apakah kamu masih mencintaiku?” tanya Abram penuh harap.
‘’Masih. Maaf karena tidak bisa menghilangkan seperti yang kamu pinta.’’ Saat itu juga Sally meneteskan air matanya karena ia tidak dapat menahannya lagi. Dulu sempat Abram meminta Sally melupakan dan mencari lelaki lain karena Abram benar-benar mencintai Lilly.
“Kalau begitu bisakah aku meminta kesempatan kedua? Aku akan belajar mencintaimu dan setelah itu kita bisa bahagia bersama. Dengan kata lain aku bisa membalaskan sakit hatiku karena adik kecilmu itu. Agar dia paham apa yang sekarang aku rasakan.’’ Kata Abram sambil mengusap air mata Sally.
Seketika itu juga Sally menangis tambah kejar karena ia sekarang benar-benar kesal. Ia benar-benar merasa tidak ada harga di mata Abram. Sally mencintai orang yang salah.
“Jadi kamu berniat untuk menjadikanku pelarianmu Bram? Apa aku benar-benar begitu rendah di matamu? Aku tulus tapi apa yang kau lakukan. Aku mencintai orang yang salah.’’
‘’Aku senang dan hancur dalam waktu yang sama. Senang karena kamu akan belajar mencintaiku tapi aku juga hancur karena kamu hanya berniat untuk menjadikanku sebagai pelarianmu.’’ semua paham akan perasaan Sally yang begitu sakit karena telah mencintai orang yang salah dan hanya berniat untuk menjadikannya pelarian.
“Bukan begitu maksudku Sally. Maaf jika aku salah tapi aku benar-benar ingin belajar mencintaimu bukan ingin menjadikanmu sebuah pelarian. Maaf sayang.’’ kata Abram dengan panik dan memeluk Sally dengan erat.
Sally paham ia akan selalu mencintai Abram dan ia membiarkan Abram untuk belajar mencintainya karena baginya Abram adalah segalanya. Ia tidak akan melepaskan Abram walau kesakitan yang diterimanya. Sally benar-benar bodoh tapi ia tidak yakin dapat hidup denga baik tanpa Abram.

We make fools of us all,
The treaded road we carry on with.
Detailed moments caught but not seen,
Important lines drawn but ignored.  
Will I ever see beyond my own horizon?
Detailed but not seen fully,
I wish to know the answer.
What road could be meant for me?

I spoke to her yet again.

I've seen all that she can do even though I've only ever seen her once. I've heard promises and spoken words. They slide off her tongue as smoothly as the genuine truth, but it isn't the same as when I first met her.
I've come to terms with no longer knowing who she is, but the fact that I can still read her like the palm of my hand has me asking why I still speak to her.

I'm fully in control of the outcome, but I'm still lost. Engulfed like a moth to a flame, dying slowly knowing that I know her better than I know myself.
I'm a fool.

A girl I know.

I don’t believe a word you say;
You voted for Trump, so go away.
I don’t want your opinion any more
On literally any kind of issue.
Though you now begin to realize
What you did to us all. Get a tissue.
Go stand in the corner and let us
Adults fix up the mess you made.
None of you paid attention
Further than the second grade.

It’s not truly all your fault, I confess.
We have to lay blame on the press.
I’m not much happier with the
Millions who didn’t even vote.
They stayed home and jerked;
Made the country miss the boat.
A lazy, worthless population
Is a shameful kind of circumstance
But a stupid loudmouthed bunch of fools
Is at the prom without any pants.

Then we look to a political group
That rolls around in their own poop
By electing a pompous baboon
Who can barely read or spell
Who spews out daily jabberwocky
That drives us all to a kind of hell.
He's an attention whore and monster.
A spoiled rich brat with no brains
Who wants to set fire to the USA
Then urinate on the remains.

The horror is, though it’s all visible
Your lack of care about facts is risible.
You gladly go along with him when
He blames his predecessor instead,
Saying the fault is what your idiot did
Not keeping the truth firmly in your head.
It’s no longer campaign rhetoric.
So please wake the hell up and see
What your stupidity is doing to us
Because we can’t bend you over our knees.

Once there was a foolish girl
who started to play with fire,
soon was consumed by the flames
of infidelity, lust and desire...
Choosing a path she didn't know
would lead her straight to hell.  
But she had become too careless,
so she stumbled and then she fell....
head over heels and going fast
the foolish girl lost all control.
Blindly she followed her fool heart,
betraying a loyal boys soul.
Chasing after what wasn't hers
was a race she would never win,
but she refused to give up,
drunk on the adrenaline.
Ignoring the boy she had at home
spinning her web of lies,
blissfully ignorant of the suspicion
that lived behind his blue eyes.
Had she known, she still wouldn't care
for she found the prince of her dreams!
But, just like in all good fairytales
nothing is quite what it seems....
While her prince was charming indeed
something just didn't seem right.
His eyes were large and teeth, sharp
ready to take a big bite
of her heart, she had not a clue,
believing every poison word
dripping from his devious mouth,
which was really just quite absurd!
She was too blinded to see the truth...
her prince was a wolf in disguise!
But luckily for her, she was rescued
by her loyal boy with the blue eyes!
See, he had known all along
what the foolish girl just couldn't see.
He knew what the wolf was cooking up
and disaster was his recipe!
That foolish girl, she felt so dumb
having almost become his meal....
She kissed the boy and thanked him so
saying how bad she did feel
for lying to him, her loyal love,
and please, won't he forgive?
But the blue eyed boy just shook his head
saying, 'This is not how I'm going to live'....
See...there is no Happily Ever After
In a Fools Fairytale!!
Just a blue, blue eyed boy, a foolish girl
and a wolf left chasing his tail.

The End~

Just having some fun!

Sit and harden
To bitter nothing;
No iterations of mind whirring and clicking
No wealth of intangibles;
Gone all,
All fled to the wind from soft palms,
docile soft assumptions that beauty
needed no steady clasp
No earthly grasp to guide it
To guide you
To strengthen bone to bone and
Sinew to tolls taken,
To hearts weighed and tongues tested

Sat you, boy, with
Circumspect observations
And abstract explanations
For your strength released to the wind
And your beauty to loamy seas

O God,
You are no God,
Just a fool boy
A fossil frozen
A nose turnt up at dry grace

Not everything or everyone is for a lifetime
But for a season
Sometimes you come across them only for a certain reason
Learning is caring, cruel
Knowledge is carrying wisdom to the fool
The personal price is set once you take the risk

"At what price?"
"My happiness."
Breakups aren't that bad
