(Sweetest) Circumstances

tick-a-chink
the clock was tinkling-a-ling.
“when will you be home ” – I sighed
two minutes before your slippers ding-a-blinged on the stairs.

eyes in eyes in a sec. eyes shut.
tired, worn baby of mine slept soundly on flowers of black and white.
eyes slightly opened. eyes in eyes.
your hand reached for mine, in the dark.

holy dark. hallelujah. we kissed.
I held you from behind. your hands grabbed mine.
when you moved in me, every breath we drew
undressed my soul.

nocturnal wind gently sang in that hot summer night
we drifted together to a place only we knew of
the place of black and white flowers
the threshold of filters and ash. and torn dandelions.

and you played the Music of the Night
while a Phantom wrote me into darkness’ words

12 A.M…
The old clock chimes.
Oh darling, when will you be home tonight?

Lying on my bed
Half-naked ; Half-dressed
Oh darling, when will you be home tonight?

‘Cause you made a Devil’s pact
The Devil wore Red & Black
(You gave her a wink.)
Oh darling, when will you be home tonight?

The Devil came knocking on my door
Saying, girl, don’t you wait no more!
Oh darling, when will you be home tonight?

12 A.M…
The church’s bell chimes.
Oh darling, when will you be home tonight?

(t.n)

O darling, o friend, I miss you like darkness.

Carpe Diem

“You know it’s all about the choices we make, the roads we take, patterns we form; how we handle the ache, ride the storm, breaking, faking, shaking the milk while enjoying the cake. You know I’d bake for you? Drinking from the half of a broken bottle and with ilk everywhere. This is about the tiny details of the giant picture, and the people who might care.”

when was the last time you were mad to do something crazy? something silly? something ridiculous? something you desire? something that embarrasses you? something out of the norms? when was the last time you live? your life’s going smoothly and you ask yourself what else you could ever need. you feel a little empty yet you’re too full to figure out the spice that matches your plate. you whole milk drinker would never try Lactaid because you think it would taste like fat free.you’ve spent years to do this same thing but does it mean it’s already terminated your life? isn’t there something else to try? isn’t the unexplored part of the world still very wide?

when was the last time you feel truly excited? inspired? when was the last time you feel like you really, really want to do something? when was the last time you’re not scared to do it? the last time you transcend? learn something new and cool like morning dews’ kisses?

live for yourself and the wonders it brings. seek for variety and don’t be satisfied with the presence. because there’s always some more life offers that you can take. screw big, suck hard. struggle and fight. try to go beyond. break the ordinary. dream. dream wild.

did they say “Live the life you imagine?” how about “Live the life you can’t ever imagine?”

try something new today and follow your gut. pour all you have into every breath. stop thinking and start living. make a difference to your life. yourself. the way you see the world. the way you feel it. the way you create it.

The only people for me are the mad ones.
