The Encounter

Image

Helplessly, 
He fell for her 
Deeply 
After meeting for the first time, 
Talking for merely 5 minutes. 
The missing started 
Ever since the very brief encounter. 
Unexplainable, 
Even by himself. 
Guess his soul 
Has been grabbed 
At that very only moment 
They met. 

The Silence of Speed

Image

 

Time slips away 
Without popping a sound. 
I can still feel the sea wind 
On my neck. 
Since when have I lost 
That time with you. 
We laughed, 
We struggled. 
I fought against myself 
On whether or not 
To respond to your reaching outs 
After we crashed. 
I can still feel the difficult decision 
I was forced to make. 
Or have I made it yet? 

The Disposable

Image

Moving things around 
To fit you into my world. 
Asking for nothing in return 
Because I care. 
Again and again, 
After giving me hope, 
You let me down. 
Rejections; 
Negligence; 
Indifference. 
While you’re considered as a friend of mine, 
To you I’m merely someone disposable. 
It’s time to let you go 
And let myself go. 
I hereby announce: 
You have been disposed. 

The Silver Lining

Image

I tried my best to make it work 
Holding on so tight lest it may slip away any moment 
It nearly slipped away one time 
I saved us 
Not too long after that 
You pushed me away 
I lost my grip I had worked on for so long 
I was expected to fall 
Who would ever guess that your push 
Sent me higher and higher 
Doing better and better 
I look back down 
With a calm smile with pride 
You, tiny you, look up at me, amazed 
And I’m still rising 

The Queen

Image

An extremely brief encounter with you 
For some reason I still don’t comprehend 
I was enchanted 
The Queen and only Queen of me 
That’s how important you already were in my mind 
Will you let me take your hand 
And show you the world? 
I asked 
Then realised 
You found your King 
Long time ago 
You are truly a Queen 
Someone else’s Queen 
No, please don’t feel apologetic 
For you, the Queen, deserve a special spot 
In my heart 

The Resemblance

Image

First date. How exciting. 
I arrived, awaiting you. 
A familiar figure appeared. 
With a new face. 
Memories struck me. 
Confusion. Déjà vu. 
Goosebumps. 
Eyes aiming at you 
But seeing nothing. 
Your mouth moved 
But I heard nothing. 
I was in a vacuum. 
Drowned by yesterday.
