1. You know where you stand. You are his girlfriend or you are a girl he’s dating but either way he’s not scared to define it. He’s not afraid that a girl will cry and run away if she doesn’t hear what she wants to, he wants a mature woman because he is a mature man.

2. You don’t have to prod him to become a real adult. He’s self motivated to improve on his own. If there’s an area of his life that needs improvement, he’s working on it long before you notice it.

3. Texting with him is peaceful. Sometimes you have conversations. Sometimes you make plans. But it’s never a power struggle of who initiates and who texts lasts. It’s not fishing for compliments or security. It’s simply a short form of communication.

4. He calls his mom. You don’t need to tell him to…

“I think you st…

“I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.”- Haruki Murakami

20 Guys and 1 you


Darkness, neon lights, music

I feel sick

The alcohol makes my head spin

On somebody’s chest I lean

His face I have not seen


I feel his breath

Against my neck

The feeling of a high

The rhythm of my heart

Beat crazily to the club’s fast music

While my hands caress his masculine back


He smells just like you

Probably the same cologne too

Memories of you flooded my mind

I remember your favourite line

Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat

I never told you about my stupid actions

During my clubbing sessions


The beats increase

My breath hastens

There is a waterfall of saliva in my mouth

I close my eyes and let my tongue do a crazy dance

Is it you

I don’t know


He has your smell and your back

But he doesn’t have my heart

He has your smile and your style

But he doesn’t have my heart

He has your eyes and your height

But he doesn’t have my heart


He left

Like you

You broke my heart

I fell apart


I am addicted to these nights

Where all my sadness take flight

They are now out of sight

I can now heave a sigh


Guy number one

Don’t remember

Guy number five

Don’t remember

Guy number ten

Don’t remember

Guy number fifteen

I don’t remember

Guy number twenty

I don’t remember


What I remember is

My friend owes me a cake



“I want him to …

“I want him to see the flowers in my eyes and hear the songs in my hands.”- Francesca Lia Block


The orange hues of the sun spread across the vast sky

I watched with tears as the plane started to fly

Memories of us began drifting apart

You became the distance, oh so far

I wish i could hold you back

I wish i could grab onto your bag

Plead you, beg you, implore you

But I know all those would not work too


Five months ago you told me you were leaving

I could still feel my heart bleeding

Off to the States you said

I felt my heart ache


Will we ever go beyond friendship

Into a romantic relationship

Maybe it is too big a leap

But all I want to do now is to plead

To plead with you not to leave


You left

I cried

It would be years

Till you come back

The time difference between us

Increases the distance

Those Unspoken words in my heart

Unknown Untouched Undiscovered


Today you texted me

An infatuated me

My spirits soared

I felt again that you were my all

My love for you grew more and more

I willingly kiss all your flaws

Here I am on this little red dot

My heart saving you a spot

Keeping that space locked

Come back quickly was my only thought


When we ended the chat

I knew for a fact

You don’t love me, yet
