The first time I saw you in a photo, and had to ask my friend who you were. The first time we introduced ourselves to each other, with a somewhat nervous smile on our face. The first time I talked to my friend about you, and found out she had told you my first impression… Read More “There’s a first time for everything…”
One can never know what to expect from each individual who walks into their life. One can not ever be sure what will become of a relationship before it has begun. One can only have faith that, in the end, everything would be okay if not better. You walked into my life as if you… Read More Unpredictable, Not Unmanageable
Some time a couple years ago, I heard him tell me “I love you” for the first time. Some time a couple years ago, I laid in bed in the middle of the night still on the phone with that sparkle of happiness in my eyes. Because a couple years ago, during this time, I… Read More An Old Love Has Its Lessons
They sat in silence as he fidgeted with his fingers. The music played softly as she got lost in the sights of town she had only seen a thousand times by now. “Isn’t it ironic how I’m meeting your brother?” He asked her quietly a question that followed a unsure chuckle. She couldn’t help but… Read More Once Upon a Nightmare
“All I ask,” she told him, “is for you to be here because you want to, because you want me to be apart of your life, because you can’t imagine life without me, because you love me.” She paused as flashbacks from the endings of her last couple relationships sailed through her mind. Was it… Read More Backboneless Confrontation
Late at night, late at night…all I want to do is take a drive down to your house and wait for a while. All I want to do is wait for you to come out dressed in your sleep clothes and get into the car. All I want to do is take a drive down… Read More If You Can Dream It…
It’s the way he looks at me, in those split seconds where it feels as if the whole room only holds him and I, that I find myself feelings those butterflies again for the first time. It’s the way she runs her fingertips along my back, my arm, or my hand as her silent way… Read More She and He. Forever and Beyond.
I still get nervous around you. Your smile lights up the room. Your laugh warms my heart. Your eyes looking into mine have the power to wake up the sleeping butterflies in my stomach. Sometimes I don’t know what to say, I don’t know how to act. You always seem to have everything under control,… Read More Potential to Go Far
When I got my job, my friend – one of the few who saw me go through everything we put each other through – had warned me about running into you. She was wary of the possibility that I might have to have a forced interaction with you. I thought the possibilities were low since… Read More Doors Closed Can Be Opened Again
One day it won’t matter how long you’ve known me. One day it won’t matter how much you want to be there. One day, I won’t care. After you’ve left me hanging, one too many times? After you let me down, way too much? After you’ve broken both the promises you said, and the silent… Read More I Hope ‘One Day’ Never Comes
A meadow lit by the soft rays of the sun, a field of grass warmed by the sound of laughter as children run along, a save heaven for little fairytales to spread their wings and sore into the hearts of those who love. This is where I remember experiencing that warmth in my heart for… Read More Today, Just Breathe
I know there are a lot of things I worry about that I shouldn’t. I know there is a lot of weight I voluntarily carry that I should probably put down. I know I spread myself thin at times, and that’s my fault. I know this is how I am. But, in all of that,… Read More Always Here
Can I be honest? I’m a first-generation college student coming from a pretty traditional Asian-American household. Instead of pursuing a career in the medical field like my many aunts and uncles, like my parents wish, and my older sister likewise, I am finding a place for myself in engineering and computer science. Let’s just say… Read More This Is Me…as of Today
There was something I had once said, probably four years ago: “If you want to leave, I won’t make you stay. If you don’t want to go, I won’t be able to push you away.” I look back and still want to believe it to be true. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been lied to,… Read More Is It True???
