I may read a book
from a different page
and being different from everyone else.
But I can still summarize the whole book,
because at the end of the day
the whole story is still the same
when you've read every page.

And I choose to silence myself,
over words that slips
through the rubbles in me
- not because of I am afraid, nor scarred, nor torn, nor tattered, nor not appreciating.
But solely because I don't need to justify anything.
I never in fact had anything to justify.
And for the reason of my words are worthless, as always.

On which I rely on my actions and deeds that speakes for the whole of my situation
and it's up to the world to judge - where at the very end, truth prevails.

I don't need the clovers of rainbows,
to cleanse up the fog in me - because everything is temporary
and far from the harshness of assumptions
that I am seeking answers
from the dusts of white ponies and blue buttons.

Because I don't need answers to questions that turn out to be rhetorical.

And to be mistaken that I never acknowledged,
and never will, the beauty
of memories that will always glow through our darkest moments
is far more hurting from the damage done.

Because no matter how stark the reality is,
underneath the bitter tastes
of burnt Winston Lights on the surface on my lips everytime,
I can still find the sweetness of the memories
and facts that was buried under,

that you never know.

I am still
the same person
that reflects
in your mirror.

It was 12am, and the phone beeped out of the cold air in the night.
I took a glance at the notification popped out,
and for awhile, my heart stopped.

For awhile I haven't thought that this date
can be embedded
deep inside the core of my bruised and
scarred mind
a date that oddly enough,
would strech an unnoticable tilt of smile
onto my face.

As a slow, cold breeze blew
My clusters of memory seemed to shuffle in between them
Like a picture album
that holds firmly
our haven
our moments
our hope
our eternity.

So I seized the chance,
and stood by the wind,
to feel it twirling around my fingers
while whispering my feeling of missing you.

Missing the moments missing doing the popping sound missing your poking teeth your moles your hysterical laughter your grin your tattoos your scent your cruel sense of humor your bright eyes your soft hands your slender neck your hair your necklace your favorite sleeping position your grips your fear of cockaroaches your trembles towards moths your wide yawn your footprints on the car windshield your voicenotes of nagging and moaning your wide smile and sparks in your eyes when you wake up your everything

your never ending beauty.

And missing the moments of being the person who would
onto my body
and being the

The immortal flame of memories that can never be extinguished.

On this day,
this very day,
I begged the wind to wrap you and make you feel safe
and asked the flickering stars to watch over you.

While I will be here,
in my very own special way,
missing you.

The Unmovable

I had a dream,
that an old man came to me, and told me,
that I am indeed an unmovable mountain.

He told me that I am a hypocrite;
as shook me badly and grunt,
and screamed at me,
telling me all of my flaws in a list,
and my weaknesses.

At the very end of it, he said.
"You never ran away. So do not pretend".

And I woke up, to the sound of my alarm,
cold yet sweaty.

I took sometime to think,
but I guess, I have to take that into my account of subconciousness.

In fact, he's right in every way.
I never actually run away from problems.
I never took a turn and turn my back against anything.
I'd make up
to tell the world "I am alright",

whilst they were all a cover up mask of a frowning face, gritting teeths, a broken soul that's trying to hold onto whatever he has.

And I beg my heart to have mercy
on my shattered and scarred soul.

In seconds, I took a breath,
and made peace with the morning sunlight and breeze on the window.

Because somehow, I know,
I am already shackled by my wits and guts to the earth,
that would not move me,
because I am me.

And to wonder why,
I always know that somehow,
I can never run away.
I will not, ever, run away.
From you.

I will always be here discreetly
under the wide sky
with widely opened arms,
in case
if you need a soft plain to land,
if one day somehow your wings
will be broken again.

I am here to stay.

People say,
that in the realms of dream,
everything is possible.

I once dreamed of having the power to walk on the water,
and fought a Leviathan.
And drowned at the end of it.

I once dreamed the very impossible thing a year ago,
almost every day.
And some of it happened.
And it was beautiful.

But as always, dreams are never made to last.

And to wake up,
cold and wet by the bed,
into the reality
- bearing unbearable pain
gasping for air in my chest;

I know now that every clenched fingers of mine
gripping the bedsheet
telling me to hold on to it.

Telling me that it is okay to have a little hope inside you
- that things will go back as the way it is,
or it will bloom into something more beautiful in the future.

But also at the very same time, to embrace the momentary peace and to raise your foot one another and keep on walking.

Because nothing is permanent in this ever changing world.
And the future,
is always changing.

A blow of wind may halt a snail on its slow journey, but never bend its will to resume its path.

I am no Moses.
I don't have the power to divide a sea
and to walk through it.

But somehow, I will swim.
Until it drowns me at the end of reality.

Between The Clouds

I found a bird one day,
while I was walking down a park.

Torn and tattered, unable to fly.
Barely breathing.

So I brought her home.
Nurtured her. Fed her. Wrapped bandages around her wings and legs.

For once, my home was never empty.
And I always had the urgency to go home sooner
every time I went for a walk,
For I had no longer felt like I was in need of a longer walk no more.

I took a good care of her every day,
sometimes too much.
That I kind of felt like she was,
trying to prove that, it is somehow strangling her,
and suffocating,
for not being able to fly,

even though I never intended to put her in a cage. Not at all.

And one day,
I went for a longer walk.

Long enough that I somehow had forgotten to feed her.

And when I came back,
she was lying on the floor,
gasping for air.

So I did my best to revive her
though I did know what I was doing.
Somehow she was able
to recover a little bit,
by a shed of light that came through the window.

Long I pondered,
before having a thought of
opening up the window,

and letting her fly in the open sky.

Because I know, one day she will fly back safely to home.

wherever it may be.

And I will never ever regret,

albeit the fact that I am hurting
wondering what had happened;
not a single day that I did not mourn.
Not a single day that I did not went for a walk.
Not a single day that I did not bleed every time I breathe.

Because she had left me a feather by the window,
that will somehow shine as a relic
to remind me everyday of the moment we had,
was real.

And to give me strength to smile,
to think
That she has flown, to find a sanctuary.

I will be patiently looking at the skies and in between the pleasant clouds,

Looking for a sign.

Yielding A Love.

I bear so many scars underneath my skin,
that no longer strangles,
but instead holds me firmly
to fortify and thickening my skin.

And numbs me to the bone.

I have learned,
that to love, is more than just to hate;

you need to relearn on how to love everything that has happened, and to let it go.

Because, to love someone,
is not to bail away,
but to stay,
not for the soul that used to wrap your skin like a duvet,
but to stand, and take the chance to embrace the empty air with an open arms.

I have learned that,
to holster the sword before a battle begin, does not mean a defeat.
To yield the shield, does not mean that you're hopeless.
I have learned that,
the best defense is to strip down and bring yourself to your weakness,
and learn to feel the strength that comes from within.

Because glory is always within those who are patient.

I have loved, truly loved a free spirit,
but you can never expect to have it revolve around you,
because every second,
somehow holds the chance of it slipping away.

I have loved a broken winged bird,
and I had bring her back to life,
even for just few months,
and I know, there will be a day,
when it will somehow spread its wings and fly away.

I have loved a shape of cloud in the sky,
a cloud, so beautiful, so tender and
But its a matter of time when the wind would blow it away.

I have withstood the lightnings, and I have survived a hurricane,
That has stripped me completely.
And I got nothing left to hold on to.
But I know, at least I got nothing to clench.

So I stay, with a smile on my face.
And I choose to live, for always.

...are you lost, or incomplete?
