about grief

"The days will always be brighter because he existed. The nights will always be darker because he’s gone. And no matter what anybody says about grief, and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken."

the deserving one

I deserve a goodbye. I deserve a reason why. I know I do. What's the most horrible thing I could've done that you won't even return my calls?

expired love

I loved loving you but it just wasn't enought for me anymore. A one sided love has a short shelf life, and mine definately expired.

the cloud

I wanted to be faceless and bodyless. I wanted to just be a cloud of ideas, of thoughts roaming around the city with no form, with no frame to judge.

brand new

We are brand new everyday, isn't that great? Sun rises and bang! A new chance, a new opportunity to right the wrongs, heal our wounds and move on.

on your own

And if eventually you're on your own, you have to learn to deal. You wake up alone, not lonely. You end up alone, not lonely. Being alone doesn't mean having to be lonely, keep that in mind.

I don’t cry as much as I used to,

I feel fine most of the time,
I know this is progress.
I find myself being positive,
I feel like there are opportunities.
I value my family,
I value my friends,
I value myself,
I know this is progress.
I remember the past,
and look forward to the future.
I sing and dance,
I do things on time,
I know this is progress.

you'll always be beautiful

I know you're scared of being left on the side. But we all love you, no matter what. I assure you that. I know it's tough letting people know who you truly are, but I know if you do your colors will shine bright. Dear friend, don't be scared. Even when you accept it and let it out, you'll be beautiful.

faster than a ray of light

You were gone, bang,

faster than a ray of light,
leaving nothing but silence behind.

And oh! I waited,
I waited for a while,
but a girl with no hope,
can only hold on for a given time.

You were gone, bang,
Faster than a ray of light,
and you didn’t even leave my sight.
Funny how people change
with just a blink of the eye.

i found it

I used to play bride,

so many illusions on my mind,
of days to come and a loving man.

Now the day has come,
I’m dressed in white,
all our loved ones around,
To see us start a brand new life.

We’ll say our I do’s,
out loud and proud.
I found love,
I found it for life.

(Poem written for a contest on Booksie a picture of a bride was the inspiration)

after the storm

And then one day after the storm, when you least think about it... the sun comes out.

the sad waiter

He was crying, so I looked away. I felt bad for him, having to display his misery to everyone attending. I never asked what was wrong because what kind of comfort could asking bring? Is it better to ignore people’s feelings? Let them feel and let it go. Is it better to not know why he cried and just wonder?

the grateful

Today im grateful for all that I have.

It took me a while to know,
but I don’t have it so bad.

Today im grateful for all that I don’t have.
For I have learned to cope,
and figure it out.

hope you know

I was happy that you existed in my life. But I never told you just like that. I hope you know these years would’ve been a drag without you.

we are warriors

We are all warriors,
fighting the fight,
trying to overcome our fears
waiting for our time to succeed.
