Splintered Chances

She stuck her nose in a book

Avert her eyes to his look

His eyes smiling to hers

Leaving turvy stares.

They never had a chance,

Even just a glance.

Time tells, spells, and sees

Why their hearts never in bliss.

The choice they made,

Left everything at stake.

They could have it all,

In lieu they grasped a free fall.

Like a crampled paper,

And a plummeting skyscraper,

They landed drastically,

A love wasted momentarily.

Deceitful hearts,

Shattered lives,

When love is left in disgrace,

Not even a soul stays.



Sometimes, you cross bridges you never planned of crossing; you dream the unthinkable, you do the impossible, you hold on though it’s unreachable and you love despite of its unrequitedness. You know it is a roller coaster kind of ride but you never fastened your seatbelt. When you’re about to fall in a cliff, you never stepped on the break. When you can’t find your breath, you never asked for someone’s help. Everyone is leaving you behind but instead of stopping them, you pushed them away. You ask rhetorical questions when there are answers around you.

You have reasons.

You’re doing it not because you’re an introvert, a loner, or you’re kind of depressed but because you find peace when you are¬†alone. You feel alive when you are in pain. You find silence in chaos. And you see the¬†beauty of every scars.

You call it Serenity. Your kind of Serenity.


Little gestures,

Grand feelings.

One more glance,

Signals another chance.

When everything in between collides,

Nothing comes but odds and frauds.

So when you deeply love someone,

Never do things for fun.

’cause it breaks a heart,

and brings couples apart.
