I dedicate this poetry to lovers who oftentimes drift apart or struggle due to their work and distance. More often than not, one person will have something left unsaid and wait for the other to take the initiative. In this viewpoint, the person can only be patient for as much as they can tolerate. That's because in a relationship efforts shouldn't be one-sided. Sometimes, I wonder if you listened to Every single thing I've said. Sometimes, I have to recapitulate info's You should have known. Sometimes, I feel like a broken record That was stuck on repeat. Sometimes, I asked myself if you really cared or tried at all. Sometimes, I wish you would be the One to to reach out first. Sometimes, I want you to lead most of Our cerebral conversations. Sometimes, I wish we can ... Read More

"Love begets love." "Don't seek love nor hold on to it especially if it's not freely given. Love will find its way." I've never been in a lot of relationships, I've only been in one. But my knowledge regarding relationships makes up for my lack of experience. For five years I've been single and I watched my friends go through countless relationships in short duration's. Through them I was able to learn the common pitfalls of a relationship. But what do I really look for in a partner? Simple. I want to be with someone who can connect with my mind and soul. It's very rare to find someone who can understand how you think and feel. In addition to that, ... Read More

Something always holds us back in a relationship. Nowadays, people change partners like trying on a new outfit. You then think that if it's going to last for a short duration why waste your time? What's the point? There are countless reasons for the temporary relationships that I'll be expounding in 7 examples; (1) When people find someone they like, they want to rush in a relationship. To do that, they overcompensate with their efforts to woo the other person. The other person falls for the false image and starts a relationship. For the first few days, weeks or months the other person can keep up with the facade. But at one point they will find it hard ... Read More

"How do you remove toxic people from your life if that person is family?" That particular question was raised by someone I knew in high school. Let's call him Alex.  According to one saying, "blood is thicker than water." Which means to say that you have strong ties with your kin compared to strangers. However, there are also instances wherein that is not the case; or if you are still close, you were doing that to avoid conflict within the family. What happens when that person becomes toxic in your life? Should you still keep in contact with them? How'd you remove them from your life? Those questions can really be tough to answer especially ... Read More

Dedicated to the LGBT Community in Muslim Territories. It transpired in a remotely temperate territory; Mobs anticipated the 21st century scourging. As the pariahs trudged through the roaring crowds  Then seized the center stage with ignominy. As the 85 lashes were one by one received Held in a bad form, harrowing bruises it'll leave. The atrocities were then immortalized in a video Sanctified to deter youths from becoming homos. But what about the crime committed against humanity? While droves scorn, diminishing someone else's dignity. I asked myself, as it unravelled itself in savagery "Were they still trapped in the late 16th Century?" For you don't have to agree with homosexuality In order to side with propriety and morality. So why do all this uncalled-for brutality? Now I'm baffled as ... Read More

Is a woman who Loves her self.  Recognizes her worth. Has a mind of her own. Do the things that makes her happy. Chases her dreams by turning it into plans and realizing it. Knows the kind of people she should surround herself with. Evades hypocrites, narcisists and the like. Doesn't have to be in a relationship to be blissful and contented in life. Prioritizes people who are important in her life. Doesn't get involved in temporary persons or relationships. If she does, then she quietly moves on when the relationship ends. Won't beg a man to stay. Won't beseech a man for his affections. She believes that both  parties should give it freely if they're in a relationship. Doesn't care what others think even if she faces ... Read More
