The lonely tear
Upon your cheek
It settles.

Why is it we cure pain with pain?

A burn with utter incineration?

A cut with mortal stabs and fatal slices?

A tear with larger rips and further shredding?

A break with complete shatter and growing fractures?

A love with a deeper, truer, more honest and raw  love?
I think I'm getting worse at this poem thing.
I've basically stopped rhyming altogether it seems,
at least to me.

In a single tear lie several sorrows;
In a single sorrow lie several tears.

The hands can say a thousand words,
if only they were able to understand them.
I Love your Hands

i can be better without you.

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books, and I thought to myself, “Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.”

I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran right up to him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him.

Then he looked up, and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, “Those guys are jerks. They really should get a life.”

He looked at me and said, “Hey thanks!” There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before. We talked all the way home, and I carried his books.

He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play football on Saturday with me and my friends. He said yes. We hung all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him. Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again. I stopped him and said, “Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!”

He just laughed and handed me half the books. Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends. When we were seniors, began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown, and I was going to Duke.

I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship. Kyle was valedictorian of our class and I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up there and speak.

On Graduation Day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than me and all the girls loved him. Boy, sometimes I was jealous. Today was one of those days.

I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, “Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!” He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one), and smiled. “Thanks,” he said.

As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began.

“Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach… but mostly your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story.”

I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met . He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker, so his Mom wouldn’t have to do it later, and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.

“Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.” I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and Dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize its depth.

Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture you can change a person’s life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each other’s lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others.

“Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.”

Kepada Kamu.

Kita terlalu sama. Suka menangis diam diam. Kelihatan tegar di luar, padahal hancur di dalam. Ketika kini kulihat tawamu yang terlalu keras, aku tahu bahwa kau sedang tidak baik baik saja. Kau memang ahli bermain peran, tapi tidak di hadapanku. Cobalah hidup jujur terhadap apapun yang kau rasa.

Tuhan tidak menciptakan apapun untuk sia-sia. Hidup tidak melulu soal bahagia, tapi juga sebaliknya. Itu kemutlakan yang tak bisa kau tolak. Seperti sekarang, jangan selingkuhi perasaanmu sendiri, menangislah. Sungguh, tidak ada yang salah dengan jatuhnya airmata. Airmata bukan penanda lemah, sebaliknya itu pertanda agar kau tidak lengah.

Setiap kita memiliki lukanya sendiri sendiri. Juga, memiliki cara sendiri sendiri untuk memulihkannya. Airmata adalah cara lain kau berbahasa dan mengungkap rasa, ketika kau tak sanggup mengolah kata. Biarkan luka terbawa oleh setiap tetes airmata yang menitik sukarela.

Terkutuklah mereka yang percaya ‘anak hebat tidak menangis’ lalu menurunkan kebijakan yang tidak bijak itu pada anaknya. Mereka pasti mati rasa.

Izinkan aku menemanimu, tanpa banyak bicara, memberi petuah yang menjemukan, atau bertingkah konyol agar kau tertawa. Aku hanya akan duduk di sampingmu, menemani selama kau mau. Dan sesekali memberi genggaman, untuk menguatkan.

Note: bahkan airmata adalah buah tawa, saat aku bahagia bisa menemanimu dan mendengar cerita kegiatanmu seharian.

A single rain drop landed just beneath my eye.

It was as if nature was giving me the tear.

That it knew I couldn't shed in front of him.
Literally was exactly what I needed in that moment
The last call has dropped,
before that you cried
And I think,
What for you cry?
No option to go there
Even Can't bear the weight of the tears
After, a few missed calls
Tried several times but unreachable
Only I left sigh on the sky
When the sky blurs with blue

Please care about me.
I am so lonely. Please,
I care about you. I
don't know what to do.
For Him.

Blade or fingernail

Midnight strokes
I feel all the pain.

What do you do about someone who is speaking publicly of you?

...beneath the ill and secretly in the shadows there
are the parts that reveal truth of which no one knows...

what do you do about people who once mattered no longer mattering?...
what do you matter?, to those of you who chose to....
what do you do about them talking about you...
what do you do when all they do is lie of you...
what do you do when they no longer matter
what do you do when I no longer matter to you?

what do you do?
when you are pale blue...

What do YOU do when-
no one loves YOU!
