I Feel The Emptiness

I reached out for you in the middle of the night

But then I remembered

You’ve gone to your paradise

So I’m left here

Curling up like a ball

Feeling the emptiness you left behind

I wanted to post something happy or positive since I’m glad that the weekend is here. However, this just came to mind and I couldn’t help but post it. If you’re reading this, I hope you take it easy this weekend and take time for yourself. Xoxo

The Sun As Witness

Two friends sitting near the shore waiting for the sun to rise
One friend realising his true feelings for the other
While the other, have always felt and hoped for something more

He’s nervous, not sure if he should tell her
She’s waiting, not sure if he feels the same
She looks on seeing the glow of the sun
He looks at her, eyes glimmering

He touches her hand
She looks at him
Mustering up all the courage, he leans forward and kisses her
Caught off guard, the kiss was electrifying
She felt goosebumps all over
But they were the good kind

She kissed him back, to his surprise
So elated was he that he swore he could have lost consciousness
And ended up in the hospital

The Rain Has Come

I’m thankful for the rain
As it has quenched the thirsty land
The flowers they start blooming
The trees they start swaying

The rain falls smoothly and slowly, showering the entire land
And I, say a prayer of thanks for the rain has finally come

We haven’t had rain for the past few weeks. I think the rain yesterday and earlier today were the first few this January. We have tap water but we also store rain water as sometimes there’s scarcity of water here. We were happy to have filled up our reserves. 🙂

The Wall

When I was small, my mama saw me drawing on our wall

She didn’t reprimand me, but she told me I could use the paper instead

As I grew up, I loved drawing even more

Then I tried painting, and fell in love with it

I came home one day and my mama was waiting

She said she wanted to show me something

We went upstairs to her small home office

As we entered, I saw brushes and paints and newspapers on the floor

She looked at me and said,

“On this wall, you’re free to draw and paint whatever you like.”

Yes, You Are

It amazes me

How you don’t seem to know

How beautiful you truly are

Happy Friday earthlings! It’s about 5:25am Philippine time and I’m posting this before my work starts. I might post another one later this day but thought I’d send you some positive vibes now. Hope your Friday goes well. Xoxo
