For what it’s worth,

I still think about you at 12:36

When I know that you’re in a different time zone.

Maybe it’s because the hour ahead of us is a constant reminder of how your heart,

despite time and distance, is mine –

like this clock,

like this hurt,

like this longing.

Despite time and space,

it is all mine.


the love remains behind,

with me,

waiting to catch up to the next life,

waiting for reality to stop just for a second,

waiting for a chance just another chance

only to wait again with a better sense of hope.

Maybe I should wait for the next day,

23:11 will come and I’ll wish upon this ****,

this hurt and this longing while you,

at 00:11 will wish upon the stars of a new day.

Hoping today will dawn with the rise of our love

only to realise that there are shams and shackles of could-have-beens

in dusty roads of despair,

bottle tops for pacifiers, balancing the toxins of sorrow

ashed dreams,

and sobs for lullabies –

not your voice for my ears,

not my song for your heart.

Nothing but space and time.

Wake-Up-Call, Catch It

Not everything is about you as not everyone is for you
Not every journey will be worthwhile as not every encounter will be memorable
Not every situation will cater for you as life is not tailored
You’ve got your god and yourself, only

And with these two forces comes love, understanding, respect and belief(s)

Those are the only things about this world that you should value and guard with your all
This is one of my many poems from my official page please visit it and tell me what you think.

Storm III
The trees dance to your madness!*

Dancing, dancing, dancing.
Crashing, falling and collapsing.
They dance to*  **your madness.
This is simply part three of my Storm collection. I just really like relating human reactions to other natural forms. Kindly follow me/share my works for more. :)

Storm II
You feel a storm in your stomach,
It fumbles your insides
And pours down your face
This is the second prose/poem I wrote that tells combined tales of humans and storms.
The suns divulgence to the sky torrents every once in a while into distinguished hues.
Everything happens for a reason.

you miss segments of her
and you wonder if it is
due to how she revealed bits and pieces of herself

It amazes me how...

On some days you take out all the blankets;
spread them across the bed and bury yourself
In warmth and then in hiding


On other days
you lay bare and daring -
unclothed, uncovered, unashamed

But perhaps this makes you feel closer to her...

Mother Nature...
Let the thunders,
I am starting to think that perhaps this should have been the beginning of my 'Storm collection' but then the first prose/poem I posted titled Storm was ages ago...

The 'Storm collection' is probably going to be a weekly thing. I will title them *Storm* and an additional roman figure each time so that you can follow the sequence. I hope you like it. Do let me know what you think. Love and light!

She will kiss me
And I will taste uncertainty…

As I kissed her back
She will want to
Rip my clothes off
Yet kiss me worse
Than she kissed her ex-boyfriend
She thinks it was when
She pulled his lip
He realised,
She is needy

Wanting to fulfil
Her needs…

I will kiss her
And she will taste fear…

As she kisses me back
I will want to bite
Her bottom lip
But will decide not to
As she tamed me,
I can’t reveal the wild
Left in me
Cause in this bedroom
All that will be
Left is me
On the left-hand side
Having done nothing right

She wants to love me
But thinks she needs not

I want to love her
But I think I have no entitlement
Whatsoever over her

On my bed,
She sleeps on the right-hand side,
Closest to the door
For she knows
She will leave eventually…

On her bed,
I sleep on the left-hand side,
Furthest from the door,
Closer to her heart

We don’t make love.
I don’t think we ever will.
Prophesy? Mhh...

I despise you.
I kick where you've walked,
I bathe and scrub
Where you've touched
And then...
Then I spit from where you've kissed!

I spit until the sickening sweetness
Is bitter!

I keep spitting
Until I can no longer taste you


I bite my tongue
And grind my teeth
In hopes of forgetting
How to say your name

I despise you,

**I truly despise you.
For the unloving beloved.

Reveal thy*
You are difficult to love. Not only because I am not good at loving but also because you are quite unlovable.

You have died so many deaths.

So much
You've been cremated all over my body,
Especially on my lips.

Matter of fact,
You're buried in my heart.
For him who left his mark and is still dearly cared for after all attempts of hate.

My Universe
For the constellation you claim to be, allow me to stargaze beneath your sheets.

The trees dance
    to your madness
As your heart hides thunder
     and your veins resemble lightning...
Rather dim,
Perhaps by the darkness of your soul.
Since birth,
We were guaranteed that when it rains,
      it will pour like never before...
Fear not to cry little one.
There is far more hurricane in this world
       and you Ms,
you were not made for occasional drizzle.

For a friend, fond of rain and what it entails. Crazy, wild child. One who has so much going on in her life but dares not to talk about it or release a single drop of tear... **

Heaven and Hell
Angelic being

Dark surroundings,
Darkened soul...

Dark being,
Darkened existence...

Doomed into dawn
   with twilight
just another retention as yourself.
A bitter bliss
  and a very sweet sadness all at the same time,
  with it all...
  hand in hand...
Just like us a few moons ago.
My very own bitter-sweet sensation,
   you and I
   'til the very last star in the morning
    accompanied by the living-dying sun.
The joys of new love,
A brand new us...
From dreams to reality filled with memories.

Just Noise
All it took was for you to skate away
And immediately
My tears rolled down as your wheels rolled away
Come back I shouted
“Come back”
It echoed...
But all you heard was noise
The wheels and the road, in contact…
Going further away was all you wanted...
While I wanted you as close as possible
Do you still remember...
when we hugged and kissed last night?
When you told me the stars weren't enough to symbolize your love for me…
Was that a noise of truth?
    or a false metaphor?
They say,
Selfish acts come with selfish measures.
Which makes me wonder
Were you being selfish for the sake of ****?!
I mean you already have me…
What more could you possibly want?!
Am I not enough?!
Who is she?!
What is she to you?!
Don’t you dare tell me I’m making a noise!
Can’t you see I nag and whine simply ‘cause I care…
Don’t act selfish as you claim to love me…
Give me your all
Don’t be selfish with love…
   Rather love me fearlessly
For I too…
will love you and only you…
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you…
Forgive my unnecessary noise but…
I love you!!!
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
I love you...
If only you knew...

I look at you
Then smile out of the blue...
Or is it a blushing...
Oh no my heart is rushing...

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

As we talk...
and we walk...
walk to class
I wonder if "may I have this dance?"

Oh my...The way you smell
Ah well...
If only you...

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Undecided...We both love each other (so I've heard) but no one is brave enough to confess :-(
So I guess for now "JUST FRIENDS" is what we will remain...

Kiss me to death
The collision between two passionate lips,
I miss holding onto the hips
and embrace the blazing feelings fuming beneath my ribs.
Take my breath away,
I mean take away my life,
look me deep in the eye,
get closer,
toe to toe,
knee to knee,
chest to chest,
listen to my heartbeat,
allow your eyes to compell me to shut my eyelids,
strike me dead with a passionate kiss,
let my soul elope into a secret place,
kiss me to death,
because there is eternal life in you kiss,

— The End —
