The First Love Letter

They say love outlives us all…

My friend told me

I haven’t written in awhile

but that was only because

I thought-

spending time with you was

the exact poem I’ve been waiting to


all my life

only difference is, I didn’t write it with a pen

I lived it-

With you.
Tonight, I write to you

for the last time ’cause

things happen

Relationship sometimes

do fall apart

I can only love you-

so much but,

I can’t make you love me

enough to choose me everyday

But I’d choose you, you know?


But love also means letting go

I want to hold on ’till it outlives me

though your happiness is not-

in the street of my arms.

It’s not-

in the home that is my heart,

It’s not-

with the human called


It is not-

at least not, anymore.

But I was and still am

in love.

They said love outlives us all

I hope my love for you really outlives me

because when it comes to you,

forever could never be

long enough…
I’ll always love you…



B. I Stopped Weaving Forever…

I stopped weaving forever on my sleeve when;
I realized how your body trembles
when the thought also pricks
onto your skin

We agreed to keep our love hidden-
6 feet below the ground

Someone said he likes me a lot
He’s a great guy
but I couldn’t betray my lungs
so instead, I broke his heart

(I promised to never ask for more)

But sometimes baby, it’s hard
there are nights when I wish you’d call me yours
I’ll run my fingers behind your back-
up, down and up again
so I could know you, like the fire knows how to burn

(Baby is that too much?)

So, I stopped weaving forever on my sleeve
when I found out that-
only nothing,
lasts forever…

To the man who thinks he can save me

So, you think I’m a lost soul?
How do you even plan on saving someone who-
doesn’t even need help to begin with?

Do you plan on saving me with your sugar-coated words or
your prince-charming style because-
I’ve got no time for that

It is enough that you tell me you love me when-
you announce it to every girl you met, just-
don’t think I’m foolish enough to believe a lie

Honey I’m tired of the game you play
I am not someone who’ll bend for such childish ways
If you want lots of love, you’ll never find it here because-

I only one have one heart to give
I only have one eternal love to use
one book of love letters to publish and-
I hate to break it to you but-

You’re not worth a page
on the dusty leaves
of my one and only book..

and the thought of saving me
is three lifetimes late already
I’ve fallen
in the hadal depths of love
with someone
who isn’t you…
