the road ahead

life can change to any given thing,
at any given moment...
the only thing it can't do...
is move back.

it's time to go...look ahead.

steady hands

when life had a sudden turn to a fatal curve.
you grabbed on to the nearest hand...

just when it was about to hit the curb.
I held on to the other.

a man's hero

when you left...
you took a part of me with you.
since then, I was never the same.

you are forever missed.
you are forever loved.

In the most peculiar way..
I am at awe..
You fill me with your greatness
and there is nothing more I need.

silver lining

there is still hope in this struggle.
keep your faith.
intervension is coming.

the pending

you break me and make me all at the same time.
the irony is achingly genius.

your empty seat

there is always a new hello after a goodbye.
a morning after the night.
a celebration after weeping.

but the space you left...
nothing can ever fill.

the deal

where choices are restrained.
i have learned to cope..

if we could lend our hearts,
for you to fill with grief.
our tears,
for you to cry your pain.
our minds,
for you to lose your senses.
our body,
for you to shed your strength.

that after this,
you would go back on what is real..
(with) your courageous frame.
your full heart.
your rich soul.

like a haymaker punch that whips sideways...
a windup that made a one-punch knock-out..

reality excitingly jabs it to me,
straight to the face..
and aims for the kill.

the world may be cruel.
we may not outdone it.
we may fail and even die trying.

but existence,
is not about keeping a life...
it is (about)..
saving a soul.

my body is weak
but my soul is immortal.

how to stay tough
amidst the heavy rain
and humongous waves...
we start learning today.

the brave silence

the only answer of a weeping soul.

the only defense of an aching heart.

the only statement of a humble grief.


never have I looked for signs in life.
it would've been more complicated if I did.

I leave it to the master...
instinct plays it best.

it comes in threes...and more

the stories of our lives,
tangled and stuck together...
already made a 'bestseller' in my mind.

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

game over

you crushed me again ... and again.
there's nothing i can do about it.

i love you anyway...
and there's nothing you can do about it.

the hero

I have the sword,
the key and honor.

yet no one ever said i'm the hero.

i'm the dupe who takes the worst
before the hero comes,
finishes the job
and gets all the glory.

Friday, March 5, 2010


why am I laughing at a life's glitch,
when it's not even supposed to be funny?
it's not rational.
it's not even mine.

rough road

hold my hand.
let's walk out of this wreck together.

about a friend

the best thing about us...

we fail life most of the time.

but not each other.

my last words

You haven't heard an answer.
I did not have any.
I could not find any.
You haven't left me any.

I haven't lost my courage (that very moment).
I lost yours.

your last words

'this isn't you.
you're living in a make-believe world,
it's so overwhelming...
i don't think i can be a part of it.'
