Encounter

Encounter

Encounters happened at unlikely places

Or so they say.

His warm chuckle

Humour

Gentle heart

Are the qualities that tickle my heart so much so

That it is hard not to fall in love

With a man of such demeanor

Though distance and time

are tough challenges to overcome

I look forward to the day

When I get to hug him close and whisper

I love you

Over and over

Again.

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

Anguish

Remorse

Forlorn

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

Apart

Apart

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.

Happy 24th Birthday

Happy 24th Birthday

Remember the time when we first met?

We didn’t know whether we should do a hug or handshake

In the end we settled for the latter

Remember the time when I discovered you didn’t like sour cream onion flavored chips?

I thought of the reasons why I am together with you but

In the end I know I will eat them all anyways.

Remember the time when I rant to you about everything that troubled me in the past?

Never once you complained instead, you gave me advice and opinion about the matter.

In the end it reminds me of why

I love you

Just the way you are

Life is our stage

Time is our audience and

We are the main characters

Lets grow old together

Happy 24th birthday dear

With Love,

Me.

Falling In Love With You

Falling In Love With You

There are times when I thought

Am I good enough to be standing by your side?

As you are far too kind

Too considerate

Too patient

Qualities that are too valuable

For my vulnerable self

As I am impatient

Emotional

Loud

Whenever I look down

You make sure to ask if I am okay

And when I bawl my eyes out

You hug me

Tightly

To calm me down

Eventually

I was able tell you

Of how grateful I am

Falling in love with you.
