Something to Remember

I held your arm. Stiff. I don't blame you. The dawn is cold and our eyes are half shut. We walked silent. Not because we have nothing left to talk about but because our throats are parched from talking too much.

I remember the days I used to watch you drive by. If I get lucky, I'd get a wave from you. Most days, you drew a smile. My heart would giggle.

I remember the first time I heard your voice. It was not magical. That was also the first time I smelled you, or to put it correctly, your scent filled my nostrils.

I remember the first time I saw your nails. They were as clean as I imagined them to be.

I remember the first time you held my hand. Meaningless, yet, they were as warm as I imagined them to be.

I now have many things to remember about you. If you leave anytime soon, at least I will have something to remember.

I will choose to remember.

Dawn Breaking

First it was the smile
Then the scent
I used to just watch you drive by
Now you drive while they watch us pass by

You walked into my midnight
Is dawn breaking without a fight?

Mister,
Can you hear my heart?

If (Help, I'm in trouble)

You drive by

I feel my toes shiver

...


If

The distance between us

Is not measured by meters

But words

Then we are worlds apart


If

The years we grew up together

Is not a guarantee that we know each other

But moments

Then I don’t know you at all


However


If

The currency we exchange with

Is not bills or clinking coins

But smiles

Then we have enough to live on


If

The definition of a conversation

Is not the exchange of statements

But silence

Then we have been talking


...


You just walked by

I feel my heart shiver



p.s.


If

the definition of intrusion

is not wrongfully entering into one's property

but wrongfully entering into one's mind

Then,

then,

I'm in trouble



p.s.s. I think I like someone. Hehehe ;)

Adele Speaks For Me: Someone Like You

From the day I heard Adele to this day, I couldn't comprehend how she could sing the songs I wish I wrote. Her songs are gloomy but honest.

"If you ever had a broken heart, you will remember it now..."
