Sometimes

… and sometimes When I miss you, I keep everything inside Like a piping hot brew For I don’t want you To think that I demand a lot from you. …and sometimes, I’m scared For I’ve gotten sensitive; I know I’ll be devastated If I suddenly lose you Or if you deemed my sentiments As some sort of joke – Untrue. …and sometimes, I wonder if you knew the magnitude Of my love for you. If you do, Please understand ... Read More

My love from the stars, In the belt of Orion you reside. You’re twenty-five times brighter than the Sun If you’re both placed side by side. Now tell me, Why should I let you pass me by? I’d be crazy if I Suddenly put you aside. Astounded for a moment was I, At the reciprocation of love I can’t lie. When you reached out to me, My heart was held captive In a blink of an eye. Reading your words of love, Whether in the form of ... Read More

I never loved the summer. To me, it spells out D-i-s-a-s-t-e-r. The scorching heat always creep In all crevices it seeps; Withering the beautiful Bouquet of perfumed flowers I love to keep. *** I love taking long walks Especially when the autumn leaves Kisses the frost on the ground. It signifies that Your love for me Will always come around Even if one day you’ll ... Read More

"...and maybe I should use abstraction more often..." As I'm penning these lines, I'm contemplating on the numerous ways I can fall asleep. When I am exhausted, normally I easily fall asleep. But when I feel that way and I'm still awake around 11 pm onward; Sleep seems to be remnant of the past. Albeit a tiresome day, I'm glad that it was a productive one. At least all my efforts paid off. I really like it when my work is appreciated, especially if my plans were followed down to every detail. Who doesn't, right? Now going back to the topic, why dabble on abstraction? What merit can I derive from it? Isn't it a far cry from my spontaneous combustion of ... Read More

The little flower Finally bloomed last summer As it basked in the warmth Of the dazzling sun. It wasn’t peculiar for it to follow The sun’s direction, Since the sunlight was the source Of its nourishment. But soon enough, This flower began to wilt and wither For there was an absence Of flowing water. As this beautiful flower gracefully Descended to the ground, I realized that fall Has finally arrived. ... Read More

A few weeks ago, when I sauntered into the room I found out that among my peers, I was the only plus size lady around. At 5'3", I weigh a whopping amount of 60 kg which is still within the normal range according to the BMI (Body Mass Index). I'm apparently surrounded by slim beauties that were shorter than I. Now this automatically sends red alert signals in my brain. You could imagine the startling differences in our body types (I have the apple shape, by the way). Normally, I wore slacks and jeans instead of skirts and dresses when going to work. What I noticed is that it made me look like a box car. It gave me a drab ... Read More
