Here Goes Nothing

Nobody wants to hear this So, I keep it all in When the time comes around every now and then I combust not in flames, but in streams Streams of salt, heat and pain   “Don’t be too serious Just let it out Don’t overthink You’ll feel better” I laugh along But inside, I cry […]

Aku beza

Aku lihat dunia Dengan mata sentiasa berkaca Tidak gugur merentas pipi Tapi kering sendiri . Dan aku lihat dunia Seperti kamu; tidak sama Aku dari mata yang sunyi Hitamnya kosong, putihnya tiada erti . Cerah definisi aku, tapi gelap untuk kamu Cantik dimataku, tapi carik dimatamu Lantas kau bicara sepertinya kau sa–orang yang benar Sepertinya […]

Alphabet Abuse

Acerbic adjectives aren’t at all attractive Abuse misuse seduce all reduced to nothing Abstruse accused assaulting, I deduced to being An airheaded muse to allay your angry raging Bulldoze my boundaries Bombard me till I’m broken Like bombs you break my barriers I bunt back but got broke in Caught in calamity Couples cause catastrophes […]

if they ask, I still love you

if it is not beautiful what do I make of these months; a giant crater, remnants of something burning & crashing onto the ground? still, I would write it off like a dream I chased after, a dream I would have given a whole lot more to carry if it knew to hold me back […]

I miss you

The day we took a lonely train to Cheras, you self portrayed as if you were imperfect.   from head to toe, fingers and teeth, imperfections are all puzzle pieces that fit perfectly to form beauty.   Your giggles and laughter are bait, luring my mind to its cage, trapping in a swirl of thoughts […]

Make Happiness

  I grew up surrounded by people who seem to think happiness had to be kept, stolen and hoarded like paper stars in jars and hearts inside of hearts Physical metaphors personified indignified of its fleeting existence Happiness was treated as such and it was a travesty In college those older than me had forgotten […]

me for me

i don’t want you to like me for my looks i don’t want you to hate me because i’m ugly i don’t want you to like me for my achievement i don’t want you to hate me for my failure i don’t want you to like me for all the diamonds i don’t want you […]

t o y

Her heart was broken in the morning. She gasps for air. Took a deep breath, and let it go. She looks puzzled for a good minute And realized she need to work. She can’t afford to breakdown now. Not in front of the office. So she went in. Fake a smile. Walk to the office […]


change is a funny thing. one time we know a person as the funny and exuberant one, the next thing we know when we knew them for years they’re not the same anymore. They’re this different person that’s so alien with the concept of knowing them a long time ago. Have you ever have someone […]


Diam diam aku masih simpan rasa. Walau aku tahu, kau takkan pernah pulang semula. Ah, aku lupa. Bukan akukah yang mulakan ini semua? Kau datang, aku hilang. Kau pergi, dan aku kembali.   Indahnya saat kita bersama pada hari silam kita. Benarlah, yang indah tak akan kekal lama. Hanya kesedihan menemani diri aku sahaja. Kalau […]

Miss me?

Isn’t it cold in there? I believe the door hasn’t been opened since the day I left. You clenched your teeth when my name pops up in your mind. Your heart winced in pain when you smell my scent while you were outside in the crowd. You eyes brimmed with tears when you realise I’m […]

About You

I have always wondering, Everything that I wrote, These heavy longing that’s burdening my chest, The melancholy and bliss I felt, Does it always directed to only one person? I have always believed that our hearts are capable of loving More than one person. Romantically I mean. That explain the ‘cheating’ game Some people are […]
