Love arrives exactly when love is supposed to
And love leaves exactly when love must

When love arrives say,

“Welcome, make yourself comfortable”

If love leaves, ask her to leave the door open behind her

Turn off the music, listen to the quiet


“Thank you for stopping by”


That  was a quote from one of my fave poem, “When Love Arrives” by Sarah Kay & Phil Kaye. It’s about what, when, who, why and how love grew. How we perceived love when we were in junior high school, while we were becoming, adulthood, marriage, even divorce, and when we grew old. Love comes and goes.

I might not remember my first crush face, but the feeling vaguely remain.

I surely remember my first broken heartache, how I cried for days, screaming how unfair life was

I remember my first love; at first sight in the afternoon I fall. Hard. And kept falling.

In my eyes he was a perfection.

The giddiness. The butterfly. The nervousness.

His smile. His laughter. Him

Spoken Word Poetry

Lately I’ve been listening poetry reading. And one of the poem struck me straight into my soul. It’s not only the powerful message the poem was written, but also the magnificent performance by the poet. Her voice was strong. Perfect pitch. Perfect tone. Simply perfect.

You’re Just My Fantasy

What I knew was only a little piece
Not the whole puzzle
Not the whole picture

Whom I knew of was only an image
Image of my own imagination
Image of my own dream and hope

How I knew when it was only in a short time period
How dare I claimed
How dare I could be
When you were you

But in my mind it was a perfect one
Perfect imagination
And here I’m lost
Lost in the fantasy
In delusion
‘Coz my fanciness stray me
From the reality
Of the real person
Of who you are

Last Night

Last night
I was dreaming
Dreaming of you
You, the one
One that always there
There’s to reminds me over
Over and over again through it all
All that we’ve shared

Last night
You’ve came
Came sneaking in my sleep
Sleep, I was
Was and still is you never enough
Enough to torture me with memories
Memories that lay between us
Us as one then

It’s Been Years

It’s been years
Since last time I met you
Talk with you
Pour down all the feelings between us

It’s been years
Since you gave me those devastating smile
Lulled me
And captivate me in the imaginary prison

It’s been years
When I finally moving forward
Put you behind
In the deep corner of my layer memories

It’s been years
And it’s over

A Fool Who Fall In Love

I knew he is the star in the sky
I knew he is the moon in the night
I knew he is the sun in the morning
I knew he is who he is
I knew

But still,
My heart never listened
My heart never give a damn with it
My heart ignores all the reasonable

And here I am
A foolishness
A fool who fall in love

Wish U Happy B’Day

When Your Birthday Rolls Around
By : Karl Fuchs

Because you mean so much to me,
I celebrate your birth.
Sharing time and space with you,
Rings my bell for all it’s worth.

Whenever your birthday rolls around,
I contemplate once more,
How happy I am that you were born;
The thought makes my heart soar.

I wish your birthdays happened more,
So I could let you know,
How very much you mean to me,
And so I could tell you so!

-For my dearest friend, RedGirl, best of all-
