The Idea

And on he went by telling me that he has fallen for me

I ask him why, what made him look my way

He says the mystery of me is a curious thing for him

So I say,

“You are not in love with me.

You are in love with the idea of me.

Of the what could be, what will be, what you and I could do,

Or would do. Of the idea that I could be it, the one, the lifetime.

You are in love with the future that has yet to unfold, which most girls might like

However,

That is not what I see.

I see the now, the boy who has no idea of what he truly wants.

The boy aimlessly moving along and bringing along whatever he is attracted to.

I see a boy lost in the fairytales hoping the princess would come and save him from loneliness.

That is not what I want.

I want a man who can stand on his own

Who agrees to disagree with me

Whose idea is like and unlike my own and respects it

A man who battles with me, for me, and will stand by me

A man who has sense and intelligence and emotion.

You may not see the difference”, I said to him.

“Because you are a boy who still has yet to grasp the idea of what it is to be a man.”

Remain Single

Is it so wrong that I prefer to be alone?

To choose not to “settle down”

To just be single for the rest of my life

To not want what most want

To just be by myself

Tell me, is it so wrong?

He picked me up and we danced away

Shooting stars lifted us up

Away we went through misty moonshine

As the sun rose from the west

End Of It All

Follow the stars towards the open field of rainbows

Walk towards where the sound of the river and the songs of the birds mingle

Smell the cherry blossoms amd the tulips as they greet your coming

At the end of it all

My love will be waiting for you

Mr Opposite 

We were always opposite

I liked a mug of coffee

He preferred tea

He fell in love with sunsets

While I’ve aways preferred when it rises

He had charm and talked a lot

I kept quite and observed

He was unsure of me

I was certain of him

And that was the biggest opposite we had

It’s My Choice

I am hard to understand, so better not try to

Not many can see what I can

I am considered a freak of society 

Because I choose to be single

At an age that many are already settled.
My being settled is different from most

And I know it’s hard to comprehend

My relationship status is not bounded or dictated by society

It’s just what I choose

I choose me

And others fail to see that.

About Being Single

Every single day they tell me

Tease me

And sometimes it hurts me

Because a single word can be hurtful 

When every single time you are told

As if you do not feel a single emotion 

As if you are not smart enough to understand 

Because they think being single is a disappointment 

When truth is, their single mindedness 

Is the real problem

I Could

I could tell you everything 

I could give my world

I could do anything

Like make ribbons of rainbows that twirled.
I could be riding a shooting star

Travel the galaxy

Yes! I could go far

Without making it a fallacy.
I could bend and break you

Make you bleed and beg for more

I could turn you black and blue

You won’t even get a score.
I could conjure butterflies out of thin air

I could smile sweetly

But you won’t get a share

No, you will regret me.
See I could be the love that you think I am

I could be your dream

But you don’t see that I’m a sham

See I’ve got some scheme.
I’d could be with someone but I prefer to be alone

Because I choose not to be a queen in some elses throne.

I Told The Stars

I missed you

I wanted to hug you

I wanted to just keep you close

I held my pillow and cried slowly

I whispered to the air

And I told the stars I cared

So much for you

And wished we could be together once more

I’ll Miss You For Now

I’ll miss you while you’re not here

I’ll miss our small talks and conversations

I’ll miss our laughters and our tears

I’ll miss your silly expressions.
I’ll miss our morning routine of drinking coffee 

I’ll miss your simple giggles and smile

I’ll miss you now and how I wish to be

There for you, even just for a while.
I’ll miss you until you come to my life

I’ll miss you for now.

Sincerely,

Your future wife
