I'm single,
but I'm not alone
I'm single,
but I'm not lonely

he asks,
why I don't choose love?
And I answer,
it has always been love

If I choose me,
I chose love

If I chose you,
I still chose love

No Pets
takitak Mar 31
because I know
myself too much

that I won't
be able to
take care of you

but then,
should I send you away?

to someone,
I know who can?

We used to talk everyday,
And now you talk to
someone else...

We used to go on
adventures together

But i guess, our  
adventure stops
missing a friend

Her Words
takitak May 2017
Her words that caught
A passing eye
Words that lulled
A dozing heart

A little light, her words
They sparked
Etched on the soul,
They leave a mark
Dedicated to Ms Lang Leav :)

In Limbo
takitak Jan 2017
what she felt wasn't enough,
to say that she loved him so

but she felt it was quite enough,
quite enough to hurt her so

*between her pain and joy,
in that space, she could
only find sorrow

Dear Future Husband #1
takitak Aug 2016
The day I started loving you,
was the day I started loving me.
I've always wanted to create a series of letters, poems, or notes to my future husband. Call me a romantic but when I get married, I plan to let him read these :)

Broken pieces attract
More particularly, I feel broken people attract one another. There's something about a shared bond on suffering that both experienced separately. How amazing it is for people to empathize with a stranger's pain.

She hasn't even found
someone yet
and he's already jealous
just thinking about it

He already lost her,
when she wasn't
even his
to begin with
what right do you have to get jealous?

Sand Castles
takitak Jun 2016
Like the sands on the beach,
we play with it, we make with it
into sand castles and moats

As we mold each grain into place,
we think no more of it, and let the sand
slip through our fingers

Now the castle stands on
the most crumbly of bricks
Standing tall in its glory,
but at the mercy of the waves

the sands may be timeless
...but our time is not countless

Not my Time
takitak Apr 2016
I lie here and wait,
impatient, still I stay
as time goes and sets its sails,
another day delayed

Time could not be kept at bay,
still me it does not take,
with one hand, I can only wave,
as I hold a steady gaze

Time again departs,
and my heart is falling apart,
still I pray, and wait for what’s mine,
I wait for my own right time
Inspired by Lang Leav's poem, "Time"

Period of Grief
takitak Apr 2016
I mourn the death
that was never alive

I grieve its first breath
it never took

I lament the days
never spent

Bereaved is someone
that was never loved
how can we miss something we never knew?

Love is...
takitak Apr 2016
I hold onto it
because I want to believe
that what I felt was real

otherwise.. the pain and tears
were they all for naught?

If I love that is not yet whole,
how terrifying it must be if I loved wholly?

It would be the most exquisite of pleasures,
but also, the most excruciating of pain

Love is a double edged sword

My Keeper
takitak Apr 2016
I gave you the key,
you were my keeper

I trusted you my heart,
yet you went ahead
and lost it

Now, it's still locked
my own heart I can't open

till someone finds the key
for now, I won't know
how to love

takitak Mar 2016
a thought that keeps,
you are my daydream

a thought that calms,
you are my lullaby

you are that thought,

you are the thought,
why my heart is at stake

Half the Story
takitak Mar 2016
No, you've never been in a
relationship, so you wouldn't

I've never been yes, but I've had my
heart broken before
From disappointed love, unrequited,
and from almosts

I may not know the *whole
story, but
the very least, I know half of it
dedicated to "us"
"there was never an us"

Half a Heartbeat
takitak Dec 2015
I never thought
I'd cry so many times
From a single heartbeat
That's no longer mine

We were just one heart
Now severed into two
My half just lays and bleeds
How could your heart beat
without me?
