To The Next Man I’ll Love

It must be hard out there

Not knowing that I’m here

I wish I could find you now anywhere

Not to rush but I need you near
I want to know you and the things that make you laugh

I wish to share your pain and make you cheerful

I’ll sing you a song when things get rough 

I’ll embrace you without hesitation and keep you joyful 
It is also hard for me right now

Not knowing who you are

However, I’ll be waiting for you

I know you’re out there
Still waiting for our stars to cross their paths..


The Patient Writes to You

I never thought that I could write something like this again but some memories are worth writing for at 1 am. Even though I kept this memory in my journal for months and not tell a soul what I really felt throughout the moment it happened, I feel like the writings are coming because of his memories with me. I can’t let myself do this. But I am.. for now. We don’t know when we’ll meet again but we know for sure that we will despite the distance, time, location, work, and life itself.

Standing at The Edge

It is hard to see

How blind our love could be

It is hard to let go

When it’s all about us that I know


Forever seemed to never exist

But to only resist

The truth if love’s binding force

Or should I say, love’s unbinding curse?


I don’t see you now like before

I trust that I’m still in love in the same way

But I don’t see the man I fell in love to

Would that be the cause?


I needed you too much

I expected this to last a lifetime

But I just can’t see us

All I see are individuals hungry for freedom and acceptance

The Lies of Love’s Temptation

Some melodies were made for love

And some songs were covered to portray admiration

But will I ever be able to show you the love that I have

And sing to you the songs that I have hidden from your compassion

I didn’t mean to go away from you

You arrived at the wrong time and place

I wished you came earlier and sooner

But we wouldn’t find each other;

If it wasn’t for the agony that has been presented upon us

But what if this agony is the sign for us to be together?

Should I take that risk?

Shall I make a wish?

I wanted to hear you play

I wanted to hear you sing

I wanted to look through those eyes and never regret

Just for a few minutes, let me look at you and say Hi.

Will you let me love you?

Just for a second, a look, at a distance, once, then gone.

I shall be gone, away from your melodies, songs, and your voice..
