Silver Lining

“She could’ve given you the world, but you missed on that when you decided to fuck her up. She had a lot to offer. She was worth it.”


They saw right through you from the start. I didn’t listen. I hoped for the best.

I fell for you…

And today the actual truth is, I was just another one that quickly became the “she’s no one”.

You, you’re the kind of person that shouldn’t belong in my life. You’re unreliable, unpredictable, and undeserving of a heart like mine.

But I was stubborn and was obsessive. I was crazy about you, so drawn to you that I failed to do the smart thing. I did what felt right for me, even though deep down I knew it was wrong. That something was wrong when you cancelled our plans and had me come straight up your place instead.

Shamelessly, I did.

Say You Won’t Let Go

“I told you to be patient, because in a moment I’ll be with you, and it will be a different kind…”

– Bon Iver (Skinny Love)


We’ve promised forever, but I guess promises really are meant to be broken, and forever, is just a matter of time.

Never have I expected that you’d leave me again, but hey, you did it once, why was I so stupid to believe that you wouldn’t do it again?

All you had to do was stay, all you had to do was give me that assurance that you’d be there.

I need to know you’d be there.

Isn’t that how “friends” are supposed to be? That’s how it’s supposed to work isn’t it?

However, we’re not only just the best of friends and you know that. When everybody’s gone, we are the constant ones. We’re each others’ anchors, we’ve been together through thick and thin, we have that strong bond that lasted through time, and that irrevocable connection that is ever present.

We’ve had so much history, but as much as I want to preserve what we have, I can’t only decide for us, I need you to want this too.

Golden

Diamonds are often conceived as the strongest, the most beautiful, and the best find.

But drop a diamond on a sea of gold, wouldn’t it be the easiest to find rather than looking for the rarest piece of gold?

Drop a gold on a sea of diamonds, wouldn’t you still have chosen a diamond?

Isn’t the Holy Grail worth more than any diamond there is?

This resembles people’s misconception on choosing the best partner. They would consistently want whom humanity defines as perfect, and perfect, being, the diamonds.

Spare me.

Though it sounds vague, but I’d choose that one extraordinary gold.

I’d choose you.

“You gotta promise not to break, no matter how far you are bent.”


I think back to my first real relationship, and while I don’t regret falling head over heels, it’s hard not to scratch my head at how blind I became over the course of it.

For now, she might still the one, but will she always be ? I suppose she’s the only one who can get closer to knowing it…

I wouldn’t say I’m in any stage, if there are in fact, stages of love. I’m not trying to move on, nor trying to get her back, not anymore Although, after all I’ve been through the past two years, I just don’t understand how she still has my heart.

I’m not worried though, I’m just surprised. I’m happy taking the most of my now, and all that’s not part of now, I don’t prioritize anymore.

If she can read this. I’d just say keep on going, always follow your heart… For as long as you’re doing that, you will always be right. And that’s all I wish for her and each and every being on Earth.

No Strings Attached

“You’ve always been this cheerful, happy, independent person that comes off to society as someone who doesn’t need anyone. But sometimes, those people whose always there for everyone are the ones in need the most of company.”


Lonely, but would rather go out there and escape things. Incomplete, but choosing to be held by a different set of arms with each time you go on a casual hook up. Miserable, but would somewhat just smile it all off.

You would rather be alone than enter the world of the unknown, being, relationships. You say you don’t want anything to do with it, but really, you’re in a constant hunt for it, but just won’t acknowledge it.

And being it as the inevitable, from the moment you’d find a shoulder to lean on, you’d jump at it quite instantly. You go on, until without noticing you’ll want more from him. You’ll want more than his friendship even though you promised you don’t want him. You’ll want him to be yours and that will blind you from reality.
