Reason will prevail

Reason is outnumbered
But it never wavers

So many of us

So many of us
So wrong about
So many things

Flaws co-exist with beauty

Be strong enough to concede
That flaws co-exist with beauty;
Withhold the need to relabel.

“Favourite Things” Wallpaper

I created this wallpaper (download link below!) comprising of all my favourite things, when I was customising my new home iPhone (ios 14) home page.

The nature’s song

I hear the trees greet me
When I am down the wind pick me
up, she envelopes and tickles

The clouds dance with the sun
in their best outfits, a perfect balance
of shadow and glimmer

Together they make a song
“It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay”
they sang it to me over and over

Call me mad; but the nature
has always comforted me
in ways nothing else was able.

I will not run out

If the heart knows ache
My pen will find the letters
I will not run out

Poetry

your existence is enough

mayhap, your fingertips cannot manifest a birth of a star, but darling, dare gleam. inhale your poetries and carve them inside my tongue. breathe to me the universe, breathe for me.

Saturdays

I cling to Saturdays
In fear of it passing by
Like a kid savouring candy —
Returning half to wrapper
Tucking it in the pocket to melt

Double standard

Your ray pains their eyes
They’ll scorn at any flicker
Yet coddle the dark

What you love

Exit the parade
What you love will bare themselves
Amid what remains
