Please Don’t Let Me Go

I told myself for the number of times beyond my fingers and toes could be counted.
I told myself, “Never again.”
It was a condescending statement, a statement I lived for.
At first I thought it would be possessive of me to ask a permission,
But it is most likely the fear that I’d once again, be left.
Left to be battered emotionally.
The trust I give is immensely so pure that I foresee something amazing out of this.
This relationship we’re both staging and it’s of no pretense.
I’m so sure of this that I’m willing to overcome my fear of falling for anyone.
It was never again to feel heartbroken, or to be hurt over and over.
I found hope and love in this. I hope to stay in it.

In Secret, In Happiness, In Truth

Hi, I’m a boy and my best friend is a girl
Platonic friendships can go way back
And you’re right, I did fall in love with her
The kind of love that never wants to let her go
The kind that wants her happy whatever happens
She will never know how I truly feel
I choose not to, it’s true
This is a cowardice move
But I will never let her fall for someone like me
Not ever, she deserves someone better
Someone like you
Protect her, that’s all I ask
Keep her safe, be there for her when she needs you
Be there to tell her she’s beautiful even at her worst mornings
Hug her when she feels cold, or when she wearing short sleeves
Tell her how amazing she is at singing even though you know how horrible it is
Let her know she’s done a good job coming back from work
I’ve known her since we were little
She’s one tenacious lady, especially for whom she loves
That’s you. Do whatever it takes to never let go of such a beautiful person

Hi, I’m a girl and my best friend is a boy
He’s pretty amazing to me, we grew up together
I’ve made up my mind that he will never be mine
And I’m happy where I am right now
The way he looked at you, was the same I had for him
Perhaps it’s just another Love, Rosie reference
Perhaps not, because this never broke my heart
For what is worth, it made my heart stronger
He knew how much I loved him
He never seems to, but he will always forever remain
Keep him company when he needs somebody
When he’s sad he will never tell you
But be a shoulder for him to cry on
Tell him that he has a beautiful heart
Tell him he smells great even on mornings where his breath stinks
He loves surprises give him as much of that
He’s on amazing guy and he’s now with you an amazing girl
Don’t let him go, be clingy however you want to be
He loves that. Even more so, he loves you.

Uncertain

It was a cold, eerie night, she needed the warmth of his embrace
The ones that she kept she dreaming of, it wasn’t a just a phase
She needed protection from the nightmares that haunt her
That soon she will be left alone and broken, all that was done to her

He gave what he could to make her happy, to make her smile
Nothing was to separate them, not even a mile
Evidently falling for each other, it was rather unrequited
She was so sure of him, but he didn’t show that he was, not quite

When I Was A Little Girl

When I was a little girl,
I dreamed of becoming a princess,
That one day I will make a difference when I rule as queen.
That I will be loyal to my prince charming.
And soon time passed and I grew,
I don’t need to be a princess to make an impact.
But I certainly want to be loyal to my prince charming.

When I was a little girl,
I played with dolls who had beautiful big blue eyes,
I wanted to be this beautiful,
With soft hair flowing down, my dolls were pretty.
And soon time passed and I grew,
I don’t need to be like the dolls to be beautiful,
I was confident that I’m beautiful to anyone’s eyes,
Showing grace as I walk pass the faces.

When I was a little girl,
I wanted to be tough, like the superheroes I read.
The ones that save lives and the ones give hope
Heroes are tough and stong.
And soon time passed and I grew,
I grew to be tough when hard times hit.
I saved lived because I showed love and courage.
Standing up for what was right, I don’t need any credit.

Being Friends With Your Ex: The Dos and Don’t s

Sometimes you just gotta let it go. Other times, you hold on to it because they will always be a lesson taught to you.

I am friends with my exes. Particularly an even closer friendship with one – he is by far still the best person I could have been with. Why didn’t we last? If he was the best, why did it all have to end? At first I thought, it was just life. Things happen and that led to circumstances, that brought us to where we both are now. Exes who are good friends and that’s all there is. But he has never missed asking me back in his life, because we both knew, we can only have each other. See that’s the point, we only have each other. And I missed being able to see others who are better than him unfortunately. I can safely say I don’t love him the way I used to. It was too quick of a relationship in fact. And I can’t even emphasize how much of his flaws I refuse to be part of my life. So here are my dos and don’t s. I survived with this arrangement, you probably can too.

Do:
Do keep in contact with your ex if you ended it in the first place. At this rate, you actually do need your ex to get over your ex. They’ll get over you eventually too.

Do set yourself boundaries. No sex on the table. Off the bat, sex with your ex can be a beautiful thing, but it’s also the ugliest thing. Give a ground rule, like never hang out on your own with them and make regretful decisions. I’ve been there, I’ve felt how fucked it was emotionally – for a moment I thought I was in love again.

Don’t s:
Don’t expect that they’re the same as before. The reason why it ended, even if you ended it, is because people change. And growing apart to be part of that change comes with it.

Don’t expect for your ex to love you back if you do. Chances are you were not in love with them in the first place. And pain is just as twice.

Well those are merely 2 of each. One must reveal all. Otherwise, I’d be deemed to be too bias. Or for most cases, I’ll be pointed out that there is true love out there for exes. But I’m happy where I am. I’ve grown to know him a lot better and I know that friendship is the best relationship there is for him. Let’s just leave it at that.
