Tale of Halves


I hope I never forget the beauty of full moon and the night sky,
of watching milk make galaxies even in my darkest cup of coffee,
the warm ray of sunshine that keeps my cheeks rosy
or seeing plants grow despite my scarce caring capacity.

Most specially, the kind strangers and the music that vibrates around that make life easy.

I hope I never forget to count these bits of heaven whether the cup’s half full or half empty.



Of Dreams and Fountains

The bread though freshly bought wasn’t soft enough.
The coffee, though known doesn’t taste like my favourite cup.
Took an early start.
Woke up from dream made of horrible stuff.

Dropped my mug a floor away without having it broken.
A familiar staircase that once had my heart, for once, wide open.
Gave the observers a wide smile and a wink to cover my mind that was shaken.
Suddenly, I was chased by fluffy, harmless and huggable grey cats.
Who seem to be pulling my leg but are also sleeping in my head.
I don’t know.
I have no clear way to go.
And the thoughts I have are like dark bubbles wishing to pop as I wallow.

Screaming neighbours.
Overflowing water.
We say hello to October yet for me it feels like the start of summer.
Universe, I plea, let this Tuesday turn a little nicer.
With thee, I hold no power.

Split Seconds

It can be that one afternoon in New York
A Sunday afternoon by the beach
A Saturday night filled with music
A weekend
A month

One summer
Your entire December
A week before Valentine’s

It happens
It will just happen




Who said we need relationships to be broken?
Haha funny

It only takes one person
Only takes one move
A tiny spark
poof! you’re a goner

Doesn’t take two people with emotions
One person is enough
To comfort, to shelter you
And same person to wreck and hurt you

At times you just need one moment to feel allllllll of it
The love, happiness and warmth
As well as the pain, that sudden pang in your heart and emptiness
Without the other person knowing it

Without anyone finding out
