    A dear John letter, to a dear friend
    #dearjohn #mydearfriend

    Read More

    Dear friend,
    It's been long time coming, to pen down the words, coursing through my mind. A letter from the heart, to say all those, I can never say out loud..
    Even as I write this, I know you understand, deep in your bones, that you feel the same..
    There was never a moment, where you weren't my friend, who stood by me, helped me through my darkness. I was ever greatfull and considered myself lucky..
    Now I see it clearly, you stopped seeing me as your friend, treating me as your friend.. I sometimes feel like I failed you, yet that isn't it.. You pulled away from me, put a distance between us. Now as we don't speak, I see it, all the times you always stayed away, one step away.
    I guess you knew that you were going to leave my life. I am glad you protected yourself from the hurt, yet you hurt me in the process..
    I miss you my friend, yet I will pass this pain on my own.
    This time if you come back, it will not be same, for I am not the same..

    Dear John

    A Letter I’ll Never Send

    Because of you is why I’m not vulnerable but you let me down every time, I’ll let you do it once more.
    You’ve helped me to remember what you said...
    I swear I’m different.
    You reminded me that you’ve given me the worst of you.
    I’ll find my reasons to stay because I want you.
    You’ve reminded me why I lock away my emotions because once I set them free
    I fall hard, without you there catch me.
    I crash broken and alone.
    You also have reminded me what it’s like not to be loved and easily forgotten.
    Every day I’m slowly saying goodbye to you,
    Dreading the day when we won’t say “see you again”.
    I’m attached to you
    You’ve captured my heart,
    You’ll always have a place there.
    So believe me when I say it’s hard to let you go.
    And after all that I’ll never stop worrying about you because you’re just too important to me.

    First kiss

    He gently took my face in his hands, his face now serious. His smile was gone and for the first time in my life I felt like prey. I couldn't tell now whether I was scared or excited, probably both. It felt as if the world had stop spinning and every creature on earth was holding it's breath like I was. I closed my eyes anticipating him kissing my lips, instead he held me tightly and gently kissed my forehead. I giggled a little inside realizing maybe he was as nervous as I was. Then he rubbed his cheek against mine, he started kissing my neck. It trickled, my laughter broke any serious tension we were feeling. And finally with my face in his hands again he leaned in and kissed my lips. I felt numb like I was out of my body. He continued softly kissing me looking up once to see if I was ok, I couldn't speak my face felt like it was on fire my body felt paralyzed. He took advantage of my state of shock and kissed me with more passion. As if I was supplying him air to breath, and maybe I was in some way because he took my breath away. However I'd rather die then come up for air. I was grateful it was dark outside hoping I could wipe away a tear that escaped before he noticed how foolish I was.

    Please, Forgive Me

    There's a million ways to say I'm sorry,
    with thousands of methods of harikari.
    I don't know how to reconcile our pain,
    without risking heartbreak once again.
    Could you accept an apology from me,
    would you believe in my contrite plea?

    surrounded by surrender

    who irreparably injured your soul,
    that justified pain inflicted on me?
    what do you think about at dawn,
    to distract yourself from the guilt?
    where did you find a replacement,
    like she could erase my memory?
    why was it easier for you to let go,
    than put forth any effort to repair?
    how can you possibly forget love,
    as if feelings were never genuine?

    STORIES I TELL MYSELF

    You spoonfed me countless lies,
    As though well-rehearsed lullabies
    Might placate tension between us.

    I forcefeed myself endless why's,
    As if traumatic memories capsized
    Could erase distance between us.

    And on nights I ache for a reprise,
    As though any forgiveness implies
    The end of animosity between us.

    Building a shelter of dreams
    About how things should be
    with measly love morphemes
    Our alternate reality was lovely

    If only I would've felt content
    Believing in us more confident
    Let our love be without regret
    Shameless our hearts innocent

    Letting love go, it sailed into the sunset
    Wishing I'd sailed away with you instead

    Fold with me in times,
    Lover be mine.


    Folds of time
    Yours not mine
    I was blind
    You were different

    You knew Gods mercy
    I believed in miracles
    Together we're marvelous
    Until we both ran away

    Shooting stars we collided
    Star dust we vanished
    Scattered pieces we fell
    Together were whole again

    Relinquishing

    Days without talking to you feels like years had passed. A week, feels like a decade. Now, it feels like forever has gone.

    I'm like a warrior wondring in a war looking for my lost sword.

    We used to talk every day. We treasured every second, every minute, and every hour that we have. A precious moment for keeps. I thought it would never end. I thought it would last forever.

    I still believe in you but things gets harder. I'm losing it. I know I promised to be here for you but how can I be here if it feels like you don't need me any more.

    Everything starts to fall apart. It hurts and it's making me feel numb. It hurts.

    It's like, no matter how ready and how tough I think I am, going to a war would be futile if I don't even know which war am I going to.
    No matter how brave I am, going to a war would be futile if I don't even know if I have a kingdom to defend.
    No matter how willing I am to sacrifice my life in a war to win against the enemy would be futile, if I don't even know if the war really do exist.

    The pain continues...

    It hurts that I don't even know what to do. It hurts that I don't even know how to express it when all I do is to keep it myself the whole time. Denying things, that it isn't really happening. It hurts to lose something you've been wanting and trying to keep but never really had a chance to have and own it.

    I still have my hopes and dreams. Still have it like what we used to do before. But reality will keep on knocking me down.

    I've tried my best to hold on to what we have. Hold on to us. But it seems like I'm holding on into nothing.

    Unwillingly dropping off the sword. Surrendering in to the war that didn't even start.

    I'm giving myself time. Giving myself space. I'm giving myself a break from all the hurtin'.

    I love you and I will always love you. But for now, I'm saying my good bye. I'm still hoping that someday somehow everything between us will be okay like what we always dreamed of.

    By that time, I'll be holding on to my sword and my shield. Be holding them up high ready to defend what's mine. I will be ready to defeat the enemy who will dare to take my kingdom away from me.

    When Things Get Rough

    I used to hold a grip onto all the words that you've said. Hold on to us. I hold on so tight without any hesitation. I hold on to uncertain things which I don't usually do. But I did, simply because I love you and I trust you.

    Everything was perfect. It's heaven-sent. I was that jubilant of having you in my life. We were always that thankful. Over the billion people out there, still we found each other. How fortunate we are. That we're meant to meet, like you would always say. That you feel like you've known me your whole life.

    We always look at the same stars even if we have a different time. We dream and we wish together. We were happy and thankful knowing we have each other. How much happiness it brings in our life. How we feel each other's presence even if we were on a different side of the world. Even if we're not together.

    We made our own world where no one can come between us. Where everything seems to be perfect. Where everyone agrees into what we have. A place where no problems, no worries and nothing else except for the two of us. We even feel sorry for people who's not able to find their own world.

    But reality always try to push us apart.

    Guess we can't just really escape the truth or was it just me? I hold on to us. I believe in what we have but are we feeling the same thing?

    Time flies, didn't notice how long we've been like this. Slowly things seems to be drifting apart. Are we?

    The smile on my face that once seems like it will never fades, vanished just like the falling star that passes through the dark sky.

    The harsh reality that we've been trying to get rid off will always knock us out. Things around us gets tougher and tougher.

    Still. I hold on to the things that I believe we have. I hold on so tight. I hold on even if the pain I'm feeling gets deeper. Slowly killing me. But I guess I'm already too dead to die.

    I'm still holding on. Even if they call me stupid for believing into uncertain things. Why would I listen to them? Why would I let go of you? They don't know anything about us! They don't know the things that we have.

    A sarcastic laugh. They'll never know what we have.

    I'm still holding on but not as tight as it was before. It starts to loosen up. I got scared. I tried to hold on tighter but why does it seems like it's slowly slipping away. What is happening?

    My tears starts to fall. Why is it slipping away? A gloomy smile draws on my face. Can you hold on tight? I won't let go and will never let go. I promised that I will always be here for you. I'll keep it. I believe in you. I believe in us. I still believe in every word you said. And I will always be forever thankful that I found a man like you.

    God made my dream feel real

    I was camping with 50 friends. Yeah that happens alot with my friends. I took a walk with one of my guy friends, we were like brother and sister, laughing holding hands walking around the camp site. Then suddenlyI came around a bend and ALL of your friends were there looking at me with this man. They started whispering "poor John hes gonna be heartbroken. " I was shy embarrassed, I hid my face still laughing. Then as we passed by I uncovered my face and thought wait I've done nothing wrong he was like my brother. I didn't know you were there, but I started having my suspicions, I started hoping.

    Suddenly I was sitting alone and you walked in your look was solemnly sweet. I said "hello, hes really just a friend I promise everyone knows." You then started to smile, drawing me in like magic. The first thing you said to me was not hello it was, "I love you too" you said it about three times reading my mind and the denial I felt. You repeated it until you knew I really heard you. Then I jumped into your arms and we started kissing. You pulled me close so every inch of our fully closed bodies were touching. I could feel your body surrounding every part of me. Your arms and legs wrapped around me holding me in a vice. I couldn't breathe! I didn't want to either. It was finally everything I wanted all at once.

    When I woke up I hugged myself knowing I could still feel your touch and I said outloud "thank you. Thank you God. It was the very best gift you've given me!" To see #dearjohn in a dream that felt so real. It really did.

    Persistent

    I'm tired of being into an endless waiting, hoping, wishing, dreaming for an uncertain things...but at the same time I'm scared.

    I'm scared of being used to not to have you in my life. I'm scared of moving forward without you.
    I'm so scared of losing you. Call me selfish but I want you, and you only you. I don't wanna lose you. I don't want to let go of you.

    I'm stubborn. Yes, I am. They've been telling me to let go of you cause I've been hurting myself too much. But... No, I don't want too.

    I will still hold on to every words that you said.
    I believe in you. I still believe in us.

    Dear John,

    I don’t really know where to start. It’s a cliché and I guess I never really learn my lesson. I always make that same mistake.

    I didn’t pay much attention to your company before, it was just a casual talk. It was nothing. It was nothing, that’s what I just thought.

    Time passed. I eventually get used to it. It became part of my daily routine. Later on, talking to you can then make me smile.

    Days turn to week. Weeks turn into a month. Talking to you could turn my bad day into a great day. It’s like my daily dose.

    We make our own world, just by talking. A place where we could dream of the things we want. A perfect place for just the two of us, that I even wished it was real. For in that world, we can just forget and leave our harsh reality. We're so happy and contented having each other.

    Distance and time don’t even matter to us. We were apart but could still feel the arms of each other.

    Craving you! Boohoo or voodoo?

    Usually I indulge my cravings, experience has taught me my body knows best. If it's a specific craving in nature, I tend to give in. Believing my body knows better then me, if it needs something. Look it up theres even a reason you crave ice! But what to do when my craving is you?! Shoot, that's outta my hands. Hopefully my body understands I can't control another human. It will just have to figure this out, without you boohoo. Oh wait there's voodoo! Just kidding I'd never do that to you!

    Are you here?

    I write of my love for you,
    Writing to you always...
    You are either unfazed
    Or unaware? I pray the later.

    Listening to the rain outside
    Redolent of our time in love
    No need for tears, smile dear.

    For there was even a moment,
    Though too brief for either of us,
    Where together we shared Gods love.

    You never disappointed me even years later
    You always knew the long term ramifications
    And I simply love and have so much adoration
    For you, all you did, and all you do!

    Winter's aren't cold

    Snows falling, its beautiful!
    Sitting by a warm fire
    Our eyes wild with desire.
    My cheeks are hot
    Against your chest.
    Lifes short of regrets.
    Not in this instance,
    Between us no distance.
    We're heated wildlife
    Reflecting flames quagmire.
    Tonight we conspire
    To fulfill our pleasure.
    No winters aren't cold at all.

    The way our love felt.

    Hurling me high into the sky off the back of a jet ski, you'd smile wickedly like you did something naughty. I get back on, screaming "do it again !" JOYOUSLY My cheeks get rosy, everything inside warm, my heart racing, my mind swirls into thin air.

    The way your smile makes my eyes glow. You look at me as if I'm wearing a halo? You think I have so many admirers, I never believe it, I see only you. Your crazy!

    Getting caught in a downpour of rain, you would always apologize. Your sweet suffering made me laugh and want to cry. It was crystal clear you cared my dear.

    Tickling you with my toes laughing, you'd get mad. And that wrinkle on your nose when your were cross with me, yet I can still make you smile. I love that about you and me.

    The way others stare, like were out in our underwear...of course we are NOT. The authenticity of our love is just so evident. A connection so real, feels like nothing I've ever felt before? An oxymoron, I'm aware.

    I love to hear you talk, listening, agreeing (maybe not always BUT I SHOULD HAVE YOU WERE SO RIGHT, I WAS SO WRONG). The solace you expressed so solidly made me feel like we were a superhero duo.

    When socializing you always made sure we were touching, if we WEREN'T close enough, say in a separate conversations your eyes never left mine, as if to constantly assure me I had nothing to fear. Your awesome that way aware of my introverted ways.

    That stomach turning, toe curling explosion when we come undone by unconditional love, blessed by God above. Love abides in the two of us.

    Those tight lip kisses we can't elegantly manage cause were laughing too hard. The way we feel so lucky like no one else has ever been as happy as the two of us honestly I don't think anyone has.

    The way I get lost in your stare, or escape in your warm arms. The way time seems like a continuum noone can erase. You can't imitate it, you can't fake the way love feels when it's real. That's the way our love feels.
