I Saw You

To the girls on the beach, I saw the two of you today, laughing and joking with the other girls. But there was a hint of nervousness about you. While your lips were curled into smiles, your twitching eyebrows had another story to tell. I saw the casual glance you two exchanged. I was there…

Married Me

To the newly married me, You moved away from a house you called your home, to reside in a new home you are calling yours forever. You moved away from your family, to enjoy the company of a new family that’ll be yours forever. You moved away from a city you called your birthplace, to…

A Head Of Red

To the girl with red hair, I saw you today zipping away in your silver sedan. It isn’t every day that I notice girls passing me on the freeway. But today was different, you were different. My eyes were fixed on you as you rolled down your window and popped your head out. I saw…

More Than Friends

Hopes Of Sunshine

A Letter To Your Man

To my best friend’s lover, I am yet to see you two together but I can already imagine how you’ll look as a couple. I can imagine her blushing under your gaze. Her lips curling into a smile when you profess your love to her. I can imagine you pushing her locks behind her ears…

A Sleepless Night

To the friend who is hurting every night, I know you lay awake in your bed last night, counting minutes to sunrise. Your thoughts fleeting, eyes blinking and lips puckering. I know you twisted and turned all night in your queen size bed. The folds in the sheets revealed your sleepless secret. The redness of…

Just A Friend

To the one who’s just a friend, They look at us confused when out of nowhere we start laughing. Can you count how many inside jokes we share? They feel like the third wheel when we are together. Can you feel anyone’s presence when we are together? They give us blank stares when we suddenly…

I Chose You
