What Words to Say

If I could speak half as good

As i could write and read

I’d probably still

Be speechless in front of you

Thinking of how to make

You love me

Space

I wouldn’t fall for you

Not without gravity

And the distance we have measured

In light years

Even when we are in the same universe

Still too far to travel

I fell in love with the dinosaurs

In the 21st century

If Money Wasn’t a Problem

People often say they’d travel

Make good deeds

But I know I would want to

Build and own a library

Filled with books Marie Kondo would never

Throw away

They spark joy, in each and every page

Another world would unfold

While I fill them all along the walls

Until it reaches the roof

I’d see their faces with their books

Bought back and returned

A piece of memory of the things written

Shared and felt even when it was supposed to be long lost

We make each other more

Than we last read

 

How I Spent My Birthday

I received it yesterday, a day before in surprise. It left a smile on my face as I drank beer and watch drama until a little near midnight.

I slept slightly later than usual since I took a day off from work.

Breakfast at nine in the morning and at ease does felt a bit different since others went to work as usual. There was less crowd compared to the weekend.

Getting wishes from my cellphone and spending a little bit of time playing games, the morning went by in a flash before I start another streak of nintendo wii games with the kid my mom babysits.

It was a charm. We’d make noises and laughs as we play, tumbling and trying again after defeats.

The evening was hot so we hid in the air-conditioned room, watching the drama from yesterday with my mom.

There are things that I should be doing but I didn’t. It’s like I took a day off from life as well. No work. No responsibilities. No worries. Still single but that doesn’t matter at the moment😂

I’d just want to say, happy birthday. Wishing you an equally happy year ahead.

P/s: To the future me, if you happen to look back and see this, do remember that I will always root for you, whatever and whichever way you choose to be. With love, sf.
