So Long, My Love

Our souls connect
as our eyes met,
for a moment
I felt my heartbeats skip.

Strange as it is
I cannot really tell
how that certain
moment has made me feel.

The sound of my heart
beating had me wondering
Why on earth does this juncture
feel so comforting?

The way you looked at me
It goes through beyond my soul.
The way you smiled at me
It had me feel like an absolute fool.

It was a magical moment
that I would always cherish.
Such an enthralling scene
that I would gladly reminisce.

So long, my love, I will always remember
the once fascinating night
where the moon reflected on the river
and gazing at you was a mesmerizing sight.

Welcome To Reality

The reality where life is underrated
and love is taken for granted.

The reality where friends offer nothing but lies
and even wear a sweet disguise.

The reality where families throw hate
at one another; No, this cannot be fate.

The reality where a tiny innocent soul
is deprived of his right to live
as well as his pure love to give.

The reality where nations are holding grudges
Yes! They already have forgotten what humanity is.

The reality where throwing stones at each other
has more fun than lending each other a helping hand.

This is the reality that gives us so many realizations
and for the fact fewer expectations.

So I say, welcome to reality.

If Only…

If only I could turn back time
I would have made you mine.

If only I was tough enough
I’d be probably watching you laugh.

If only I was not a coward
Maybe, we’d be traveling together
and laughing hard.

But this human here wasn’t exactly
the man you expected.
So you see, I left you when
you were most in need.

I buried the love in the
deepest of my heart
Watched you walk away
in tears, I know you were hurt.

If only I was that brave
as you are
Maybe, ours would be the
best love story by far.

Note: This is inspired by a true to life story of a male friend of mine who requested me to write a poem for him. He was in love, and still in love with the same girl who happened to be his best friend yet, he was scared to tell her that he loved her and decided to go and distance himself from her despite being aware that the girl also felt the same for him. The fear of getting the friendship ruined reign over him. Little did he know that it was already too late to save both the friendship and the feelings.

Forever, My Beloved

A promise of eternal love —

a love that’s sent from heaven above.

Beyond measure, I truly care

A kind of love beyond compare.

I’ll bear the pain and set aside

the worries and fears I have inside.

For I know my love will never fade

even the years turn to decades.

We took a vow for us to keep forever

Each glorious moment let us savor

Heaven and earth to our love disapproved

To me, you are forever, my beloved.

Let our love be free

Let our souls find the way

Let’s create memories

in this world of bliss and agonies.

What’s mine is yours

the air I breath

the tears I shed

the lies that make me bleed.

Along with this journey

is a majestic story

of how love conquered

and win ’til the end.
