When I need you

It was December 23, 2003 when I came,

and, then, only ten days after, you left,

And from that time I should’ve known

That it would always stay the same.

Years came and we got closer

But then you got another family.

I always knew you were a poser

But it still hurt to see you happily.

Fifteen years have gone by

And I can’t help but realize:

You’d never sing me a lullaby

And yet I loved you without thinking twice.

When I think of it, with me

I sympathize

Because that love I thought you for me had

Feels like nothing but a lie.

Years came and we got closer

And you’d still claim a lot from me,

And even though you never call me

I still became your devotee.

We went different ways,

But I still loved you;

We become different people,

But I still missed you.

Life brought us back together

And I thought it would be for good

But everything stayed like always

(Probably the way it always should).

And then my fifteenth party arrived

And you made it your second option.

That day I realized you’re never there.

You’re never there when I need you.

The thrilling and yet peace-inducing waves that would carry my body from side to side seem to be one of the sea’s features that I reminisce whenever I’m near said place. Continue reading “The sea”

“A Death Ends a Life, Not a Relationship”

From left to right: My great grandmother, me (at three years old), and my mother.

“A death ends a life, not a relationship.” This was said by Morrie, the main character of the book ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’. I can relate incredibly to this quote because I experienced the death of someone extremely close to me when I was a child. At only four and a half years old, Continue reading ““A Death Ends a Life, Not a Relationship””

‘Guns N’ Love?’

I wrote this short story in a play format (kind of.) It was sort of inspired by a few writing prompts I saw on the internet. It has an open ending for everyone to let their imagination flow and create the ending that satisfies them the most (I hope you share in the comments what you think the ending was.) Enjoy!

‘The Beauty Behind Poetry’s Depth’ Series: Part 2

I wrote this poem some time ago while I was thinking about a person that was special to me. It was sort of inspired by one of my favorite songs: Electric Love by BØRNS. I also tried to maintain Continue reading “‘The Beauty Behind Poetry’s Depth’ Series: Part 2”
