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

Running Late

Everyone is in a hurry, it seems

Daylight fading or running out of schemes.

They dress and doll up, attractive as can be

Gorgeous lips with wonderful locks for every man to see.

They try, they sell, they do cutie stuff and flirt around 

All to be “taken”, taken where? Oh, just around.

They tell me I’m running behind, they all tell me to hurry up

No time to chit chat, no time to stop.
But I’m not running late

I’m not even running 

There may be some disappointments, maybe some hate

But I’ll show them I can be stunning.

On my own.

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.

Lifetime Companion

I would like to grow old with you
To talk to you
To share with you anything and everything

I’d like you to be my closest friend
My secret keeper
My shield
The shoulder I can lean on

I’d like you to be the one who makes me cry
And the one who comforts me

I’d love for you to be my companion for a lifetime

I’m Lost And Alone

I do not mind being alone
But now I feel this pain
My mind has been over blown
I don’t think I have anything to gain

People all around seems to have someone
And I am left with none

Am I so wrong that no one is right for me?
I wonder what it is I do not see

Singularity

they say I’ll be lonely, that I’ll grow old alone

so they tell me to find someone, as if the one that

I would love grows on trees

 

as if like apples

I can just easily take a pick

and put whoever he is in my basket

 

they make it sound like I should go on shopping

hit the grocery store or the market

and start going through my list

 

why can’t they understand that I’m fine?

that I prefer it this way?

that I prayed to God about it,

that I am in no hurry,

that settling down would mean difficulty

for both my parents

 

I stand firm but never am I alone

being single never equates to loneliness

I am the exception to whatever rule

you may have in mind

 

I refuse their pressure

I know they will never understand

and I don’t need them to

for I know what I want

and I know what makes me happy

 

Single Still

Ah to be single! in the world of jungle

full of couples

cuddling, hugging, staring at you

as if it’s weird that you’re alone

and they are not

 

I go on life; living, breathing, the freedom I adore

yet they stare me down

as if I’m an alien or a weirdo in pajamas

they think I’m lonely

just cause I’m single

I find that pathetic, really

do I really need somebody just to make me happy?

 

I curl in the sofa, soak up the TV

or read a book

boring is my life, so they say

but I don’t care

I need not prove anything to them

for I know where my happiness lies

 

I go about my business as they continue

to stare

a look of happiness upon my face

I do not mind, just ignore them all

yet they continue to wonder

and ponder

and ask

why I’m single still

The Old Couple

there she was waiting on the white park bench

softly she was singing of happiness and content

her eyes sparkled, reminiscing the years

she was smiling

she was contented

 

he was trotting and whistling happily

a bag of popcorn in hand

smiling widely and not minding his aching back

he felt like he was nineteen again

and the day could not have been more perfect

 

under the shade of the oak tree

a gentle breeze swept over

children flying kites, joggers here and there

an ice cream vendor not far off

she met his eyes and he gave a hearty laugh

he sat opposite her and they gazed at each other

he held her hand

like how he always did

all those many years they’ve been together

 

and there they were

sitting on the white park bench

frozen in time

as I snap a picture from a far
