I tried once to love the moon
but he was pale with grief and his tangled grin, silent to the fireflies in my lungs.
I longed to plaster galaxies along the canvas of my flesh.
once starved by a myth,
where is the purpose?
what have i not found?

“what are we?” she asked

with despair, he replied, ”we’re nothing”
If I wasn't too black to wear in the sun when the skies are blue. Maybe a different colour would fit.
If I wasn't so thin to keep you from winter morning cold & chill. Maybe a jacket is all you need.
If I wasn't fragile made for wind to ******* when you hang me on the line. Maybe a peg will hold me up.
If I wasn't  made of cotton to get wet when it pours on you skin. Maybe an umbrella will do that.
Maybe then you will wash, bleach, iron and put cologne on me.
Until then I am your T-shirt.
 Just a T-shirt.

There is point where we all need to come to peace with what we can't change about ourselve (esp. our physical appearance), for we are just human and we say "enough". Don't let people who can't recognise you value becomes predicaments of your life. Learn to move on, separate.

He smile at me
So I smile back
I need him so much
But he seems so happy now
So I walk away and smile
He doesn't need me
Like I need him
He already moved on
So It’s time for me to let him go and move on.
Happiness is a choice and I choose your happiness first before mine.

Please forgive me my dear
I can't stop my tears
It's flowing like a river in my face
I'll still remember our old good days

Please forgive me cause I can't stop loving you
Forgive me cause I'm still missing you
Writing this poem is all I can do
Even it kills me every time I remember you

But now. Please, still forgive me. .

Forgive me cause I will stop thinking about you
I will stop loving you like I used to
This is the last poem I will do for you
It's hard but this is the right thing to do

Forgetting and letting go of you. .

Forgive me.

Tell me you love me baby,
Please, tell me all you need is me.
Tell me everything i wanna hear,
Even if it was all a lie.

Cause right now, all I need is you
I feeling so down,
And all I need you baby.
Can you hear me?
Im calling your name so loudly.

Telling you to comeback
Just even for a months
Just until im ready to let you go

and i once said to myself,
"let it be that you are sad, broken, helpless, alone, wanting..
let it be that you are nothing.
because when you are,
you are free-
free of the vines that drag you down,
of the shackles that keeps you in place.

of the you
that you were bound to let go
a long time go.

let it be that you are sad.
let it be that you are broken.
let it be that you are hopeless.
let it be that you are alone.
let it be that you are wanting.
let it be that you are hurting.
let it be that you are how you feel.

let it be.
so once you're ready,
you can finally let go."
a lot of realizations. oof

Sometimes let go,
It's less painful than holding on,
To let yourself evolve and grow,
It hopeless to hold on,
To hope,
To barely survive,
To hope for something to never happen,
To expect and believe,
And eventually be broken,
Because you didn't let go,
Because holding on,
The rope will break,
Ull be taken for granted,
You loose your value,
You won't get what you wanted,
It's an **** thing but true,
There is no point in holding on,
When eventually ull be left,
Left to eat dirt,
Left alone,
There is nothing as hope,
It's a lie,
So just let go
*** ever you want to percieve  it

because when i trace your skin
i can hear music

and when i look into your eyes
i see an ocean

now please tell me how
do i just let that go?

I lay down this dead roses
Out in the open field
Watch the petals turn to dust
And vanish in the wind
Make a heart felt wish
For a soul I once thought I knew is dead and gone
Sank deep into the abyss
So glad I could catch a glimpse of whats left of your sunken soul
And now I loosen my grip and set you free
May the waves carry the weight of your burdened spirit  
Forever hold your peace
©Sonia Ettyang
I send a hope upon the wave for the soul I failed to save
