Pretentious People

A stanza of a song goes this way
“fake people showing fake love to me
Straight up to my face”
Yes, pretentious people

They say they love you today
But tomorrow they’ll leave
Without any hesitation at all
Yes, pretentious people

Will care for you
But all they want is
A temporary someone to hold on to
Yes, pretentious People

The one that will hold your hand
Only to let it go
When you got no leg to stand
Yes, pretentious people

Will say “I love you”
Only to give you false hope
That you’re special too
Damn you pretentious people!


Finding Love

Is it true that the kill
Is better than than the hunt?
That feeling love is better
Than going through the
Process of finding love?

“Love is patient, love is kind”
But why do people
Often find their selves
So hooked up
In finding love?

Is it true that maybe
We already found our love
And we just don’t know
Not even a hint
That they’re the one?

“It does not boast, it is not proud”
Yet ego is sometimes in between
Why do people often
Hurt the one they love,
It’s just ironic right?

That Girl

She was young
And yes, reckless
The moment he left her
Was also the moment
That she felt she was freed

Freed from the shackles
Of what society dictates her to be
To be that esteemed girl
That everyone admires
that everyone looks up to

The moment he left her
She enjoyed the life
A life that is full of open doors
Of exciting opportunities
And of endless choices

So she chose to be
That girl that is
Young, wild and free
Dating guys here and there
Breaking hearts here and there

Open minded she became
Of what the cruel world
Could offer her
She became someone
She ought not to be

Broken hearts
shattered pieces
She reflected upon herself
Am I truly happy?
Is this really the girl
I truly wanted to be?

When It’s Time to Leave

Some people stay, some people don’t
It’s all about the art of letting go
But how can someone forget
the kind of man that is hard to let go?

The memories can never be forgotten
engraved in the deepest part of my mind
So how can you move on,
If someone like him is hard to find?

The last goodbye, the last farewell
The last moments you’ll surely miss
Is it worth it when all you ever had
Is one last feather-like goodbye kiss?

Bitter-Sweet Dreams

I woke up wary
I woke up panting
I woke up thinking of you

It was a vivid dream
A dream where I saw you
You stood from afar, far from me

I made a turn into a dark alley
But before I do, I peeked at you
Still you stood there, stiff and steady

Scared, three men behind me
I emerged from darkness
I saw you there, just staring at me

I felt the coldness of the air
coldness of your stare
Why are you like that? I began to wonder

Flicker, my eyes swung open
I got my phone and called your number
I told you the dream, starting from the beginning

Relieved, I sighed my wary away
“I will never do that to you, it’s just a silly dream”
“Now go back to sleep, don’t worry, I’ll stay”

Violent Waves

Baby, come swim, come swim with me
I hesitated because I can’t
Baby, come on, the water’s fine
I nodded again ‘cos I just can’t

Baby, come on, come on aboard
I gave my hand, to sit behind
Baby, just row, just row the boat
I said yes, yes, this is fun

Baby look, look at the sea
I smiled at him and him at me
Baby, go further, further beyond
I went and now, I’m terrified

Baby, come back, come back to me
I can’t, you see, the wave’s too violent
Baby, I love you, don’t let go
He watched me drown, go down below

Strange Connection

Day 1 started with the cliche “hello”
While our eyes scan each others unfamiliarity
You offered a handshake, I can’t refuse
From there, I felt the strange connection
Is there a possibility of you and me?

The way you look me in the eye
It’s like looking past through my soul
Undressing me with your mere look
The eagerness to know me transparently
Its giving me the chills, I just can’t control

The night arrived, with a hint of rain
The drizzling sound makes my mind at peace
The thought of you by my side is ecstasy
Warm bodies, side by side we lie
Imagining you and me, suddenly I’m uneasy

Then you made a move, you hovered over me
our lips interlocked, our tongues intertwined
I’m lost in the sweetest taste of your mouth divine
Lost like a traveler in the desert
Lost but I know, its for you to find.

But when dusk meets dawn,
There is no sight of you
Is it just a dream? Where did you go?
I found myself looking for you
looking for the man I had a strange connection to.
