Time Heals All Wounds

Time Heals All Wounds

It has been three weeks since we part ways

Ever since,

I took our pictures off my bedroom wall

Deleting any signs of you and I from social media and

Tucked your clothes in the corner to collect dust

The feelings of




Are of such great magnitude

It made me thought over

Of whether I made the right choice

As I am subconsciously afraid that

I would never find a better man

But this journey that I had with you

Taught me a valuable lesson

It is okay to throw yourself into loving someone dearly

It is okay to cry when you have to cry

It is okay to say

“I love you”

As I see nothing other than a reflection of

a beautiful girl who gave it her best

And would settle for nothing less

Getting over you would not be an easy task

But as long as the clock ticks its hand

Time will slowly heal this wound

From which its scar I will wear with pride

For years to come.

Listen to this poem here: Soundcloud



There is no such thing as

Love at first sight

I learn to love you

Through the good and bad

But it seems that

I would never be your number one

As the quests of taking care of your family and job hunting

Are high up on your priority list

Am I selfish? I think not

All I ask is for us to spend more time with each other

Sharing more moments together

Which is hard to achieve by meeting up once a month

Unfortunately, Skype does not cover the gaping hole of

Physical Presence

You did mention several times for my sake that

“Its better for you to find another man”

But I persistently held on

Because I thought I am able to patiently wait

By being your pillar of support going through your tough times

Little did I know

That my happiness would be the victim of this chaos

So it is best for us to be apart

As it would save both your heart

And mine

from calamities to come.
