Prescription

I’ve had 3 cups of coffee And slept two times today. I forgot my meds, baby, And I’m losing control over the pram. It’s funny how wonderfully confused my body is. It’s my fault, for not getting a refill, And I haven’t felt so out of touch and so desperate for love in quite some…

yesterday feels like today

i had a dream and in my dream i woke up back at home; it might have been a nightmare. but there were no tears, just an itching comfort. i missed this bed, this room, the window facing the east Sun. i woke up, my mum leaning on the door frame. she had a coffee…

Off

I bit my teeth so hard trying to not cry. That pain lasted for days. But when my throbbing jaws were given rest The infection spread to the rest of my body. I’m unable to sleep and unavailable emotionally. It’s like I emptied my wine barrel of emotions out on the floor for me to…

The shallow yet deep waters I keep in a bottle

I’ve always thought that I was deep That I had a galaxy of pain and understanding That I was the embodiment of pure confusion and enlightenment That I had experienced everything and yet, there was another world waiting for me to discover But now I realize, I’m a shallow pond. I’m simply a mirage, nothing…

Ignorance

I came out to my 19 year old younger brother when i was 21. It was a beautiful January and we met after a long time because college had separated our family I came out to him while walking to a korean mart It was sudden and it surprised me when the words flew out…

Café Love Story

Your lips, that day, tasted like coffee-Bitter… But I’ve acquired a taste for them. After taking a bite of something sweet. Like the Arab’s do, Kahwa after a date. And now all I can do is get turned on by the aroma at every café I find myself in. Your hands, that day, smelled like…

Fake Funeral

If I died early on, I’d want to see my own funeral. Maybe I should try one of those dummy body switch shit. It might work. But unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of money and contacts. Also my mother and grandmother are very observing. They could find the tiniest flaw and I’m done for.

Bipolar

Some days, One person can tip the scale To switch ON the hypo manic And turn OFF the depressive panic.

FuqBoi

There was once a boy I loved But he had lazer eyes And everytime he’d look at me He’d chip away a piece of me. But I didn’t mind Because he was just so beautiful to look at. His attention was all I craved. But at the end of the day, I had a huge…

Feedback

If i could write mean letters to people, I would start with giving one to almost every teacher that taught me in college. Why were you so openly biased?

Rubbish

Everything is just rubbish! I fight stereotypes only to be put in one. A rebel. A loudmouth.

Red Cartoon Heart Eyes

I hesitate to look you in the eyes, Perchance you see red cartoon hearts in place of my pupils. I tried to be hurt by you and flush those red shapes out through my tears, But all that happened was I always ran back to you So that you would kiss my boo boo. My…
