I Will Be Your Happily-Ever-After

if dreams do come true, just dream on for long,
you’re better off there, its exceptionally wonderful

if reality bites, live in fantasy for a while,
you deserve a magical escape, a restful solitude

if there is “happily- ever – after”, hold on to it,
yours will happen soon, in time


if i am your fairy godmother, you won’t need to dream for a fantasy world, nor wait for your “happily-ever-after”
i’d make your dreams come true


i’d turn your fantasy a reality

better yet,

i will be your “happily- ever-after”



I Miss You, It Hurts

“I gave up looking for someone who can make me laugh like you do”


i miss you because i miss myself when i am with you. i am my best self with you; i laughed the hardest, cried hopelessly, talked endlessly.


i miss our unending conversations. our silent moments. our pointless arguments.


the way you look at me. the way you make my heart melts. the way you make me smile. the way you make me realize that love is more than the poetry i write, more than where my thoughts could go and more than what “i love you” really means.


i miss you so much it hurts.


“I never imagined witnessing
something like this; never in
my lifetime”


it’s like an apocalyptic movie. the airport looks like a ghost deserted town.

it used to be just a movie scene.it used to be just a book narrative.

it used to be just a perfect screenplay pitch. but I saw it with my eyes, my heart bleeds,
my soul cries.

and I am still bleeding.

so with great pride,

I raise our flag to salute and commend, our brave frontliners.

they who never gave up.

they who never get tired.

they who never complained.

Smile #fantasy#writephoto

“each deepened creases in my smile
is every beating moment of my heart,
saying, i loved you then, and i love you now.”


If my smile could express what my heart wants to say, then you would know that everytime you look at me, I misses a beat, and I go heebie-jeebies.


You make my heart flutter.


I swear, the world stopped the first time i saw you, and that my love, maybe pure fantasy for others, but is my perfect reality.
For Sue’s




August my dear, is the
eight month of the year
and in the Northern Hemisphere
there’s so much fun in the sun,
as they wait for summer to end
autumn approaches, with hope
just like you my dearest;
you are the summer of my life
warm, thoughtful, and caring
you are my lovely falling autumn leaves
going into a winter rest



i cannot think
of any better pair
of seasons of the year
to speak of my love
than summer and autumn;
I love you, with the warmth
of a hot summer day,
I love you with the grace
of autumn leaves falling effortlessly
(as i fall head over heels on you)
waiting, for a restful winter night

You are the Reason #whatdoyousee

the world is in need 

of a gentle touch

and a gentle smile,

a kind heart

and a kind reminder

and for whatever reason

you remain my gentle touch 

my gentle smile;

my kind heart 

and my kind reminder

you are after all my poetry

my lovely verses and metaphors

my song, my melody, and my symphony

you are my story

and you are always and forever 

the greatest love of my life





The image shows a baby monkey, admiring the view from above the tree. I could almost see his eyes glow with so much joy. He is so adorable and so cute. And I am reminded of all the good reasons that made me smile amidst the pandemic.

Is This How Trust Betrays? #writephoto#worn


Written for Sue:




how much of my generosity has made you

the happiest that you are now?

how much of my kindness has made you

the confident that you are now?

how much of my cheerfulness has made you

the enthusiastic that you are now?

how much of my love has made you

the best that you are now?

you don’t need to say a word

your silence says it all

your achievement says it all

your well – being says it all

but why, oh dear, why

did I become the worn – out,

old – dilapidated steps 




is this how selfish you are?

is this how love ends?

is this how trust betrays?
