Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul


Inspiration Call



Captivated. I’m chained to your love.

In response to Inspiration Call: Write a Six Word Story

Be Yourself


I think it’s time to cut the ties
Of doubt, distrust, and disbelief
Steer away from all the lies
Cut loose the strings of utter grief

No one can tell us who we are
No one can read us from our scars
In life we may tumble and fall
We’re not a puppet, after all.

I love you still

Written for Inspiration Call: Describe This Scene & MicroPoetry Phrase Challenge

Trying to explain the silence
She stared at the kit
Two red lines of warning
Her hands suddenly shake

Trying to explain the silence
She screamed her heart out
Asked how could it happen
Cursed fate and luck

Trying to explain the silence
Tears rolled down her cheeks
Squeezed her princess tightly
Whispered, I love you still.

If I should walk the path alone
Face the unknown
Brave the abyss
In clenching fists

I would walk with faith in my heart
Beam as I start
Follow your will
Let go and kneel

For you alone are my savior
You are my cure
The one healer
My redeemer

I envy the buried faces…

Inspiration Call - Creative Talents Unleashed 9

I envy the buried faces
For they have been spared from today’s tragic news
No Middle East tension to haunt them at night
Or political feud to twist their cheerful smiles
I envy the buried faces
For they have been spared from drastic climate change
No earth-shattering quakes to set off their fright
Or dreadful typhoons taking their lives
I envy the buried faces
For they have lived a life of genuine bliss
No phones or gadgets to pull them worlds apart
No selfishness or chauvinism to separate their hearts

Written for I envy the buried faces…

Wake me

Inspiration Call - Creative Talents Unleashed 8

Wake me
Let my skin radiate with your every single touch
That the stars shining above would shy away from my iridescence
And the moon—grand and dazzling— would smile at us
Make my thoughts run wild as I curl inside your arms
Dreaming, wishing, and hoping that forever it will be you and I
Let me fill my head with stories and memories of us
Wake me
Let my smile reach from ear to ear as I wake up by your side
Staring at those enticing deep brown eyes, breaking through my senses
I would love spending my every waking day with you
Let me greet the world with love, hope, full of faith and see the beauty
Even in very little things; make me believe that goodness still exist
Allow me to believe that I am strong, smart, and beautiful
And when I have risen from the ashes like a phoenix
And have danced round the fire like a moth
Let me thank you for waking me.
Thank you for waking
The beauty inside
Of me.

Too afraid to fall
She never did get a chance
To fly or to land

In life and love, we’ve all came to this point. How did you take the chance?
