Off into the rainbow

Please believe me, my hands are soft and flowers rest on them like my heart and these soft words, almost muted for you to you, whom I’ve rejected and who has rejected me in return to you, who travels far and wide looking I trail behind, distantly so that you don’t see me knowing that […]

When I pissed myself in China

No, it’s not something that I’m proud of; it never is, but some moments are so effing awkward, traumatic, yet thrilling that I have to write about it. The smell of sweat when you’re traveling alone for two straight days; running about here and there, trying to figure shit out while you follow rules less […]

Deep night with a douchebag

Southeast Asian beaches remind me of him. I was young, the night was wild, the winds were gently blowing over my face, and there was mystery light blinking from a ship afar. The stars were crystal clear and bright, the breeze was warm. My skin was radiating even in the dark. So warm it all […]

Book I’m not gonna read, sketch I’m not gonna draw

Something happens when I head to the east. Way more interested in soaking in the air, sounds, and sights; the honking of the cars, the hustling and bustling of people, random music, everything. Sitting on the rooftop watching people walk. Two years ago I went into a spell of whatever the f it was when […]

Kicking rocks for no reason

I remember when I had an epiphany that I would ultimately forget again. It was during one of my first jobs in an office as a collage student. That job was where I had gotten a taste of the adult working world. There was a creepy mathematics dude who used to always stop by my […]

Lucky birds

Another year, and the birds are still riding the river on a floating sheet of ice. How awesome it must be to be them; enjoying the fresh outdoors while hanging out as a group with fellow flocks-mates. Just travelling on a mission together, sitting and checking out the cool scenery together, flying about and getting […]

Pedestal

I put you on a pedestal, With fighting fish crawling under the mud at your feet In a serene place enchanted with greenery Where the rain drops with fragrant flowers All around you, and at your feet Where the monkeys laugh and play in swings atop balconies, And the dragon snake slithers through the skies […]

Satisfaction

You and me, side by side, on the back of a rattling bus Looking at each other smilingly; while hair strands fly across my face from the harsh winds that barge through the window Along this crazy, winding, bumpy ride. There’s so much joy bursting inside me, acknowledging that I get to touch your warm […]

The bloke at the airport

The bloke at the airport. London town, all year around. With heavy London accent and a surprisingly friendly assistance. Took ama across the airport; an old one pushing one older. Tattoos on his arms indicate years of wrong decisions. But this is London town, his home, his land, and his particular accent says it all. […]

My blissful chaos

Wow I miss it so much; life in the east where the sun rises and you’re always drunk on love. A place filled with holy gods and goddesses watching you from every street corner as you pass by with a helpless smile, eyes closed and head tilted towards the sky. High on dust and dirt. […]

Jungles of Cambodia

Is it white heaven or green hell? The water droplet glides across a green leaf and falls into the ground as if it knows what it’s doing. It’s over 100 Fahrenheit weather and my mind is clouded with steaming and scorching fog. Forehead throbs with painful memories that become ever so pleasurable and vivid with each […]

Subtle Warmth of the White Cotton Blanket

Raindrops on banana leaves and subtle warmth of the white cotton blanket distant strumming of the whiny guitar rhythmic drumming of my heart; beat like songs from the paddy fields during monsoon. Sunshine and rainbows runway clouds and fantasies taste of fruits so sweet they cause pain and sounds of birds; tweet so loud, they […]
