Maybe because I don’t know what it feels like to be affluent. Maybe because I wasn’t endowed with good looks that would make girls swoon. Maybe because I’m not particularly talented nor have something I’m really good at. Maybe because I’m a nobody, a simple guy with simple tastes and simple joys. But for as […]

You say you’re ugly Too spent, too scarred You say you don’t deserve me That life has been cruel to you You say you’re damaged beyond repair. How many times must I tell you How could I make you understand That you’re beautiful to me Not in spite of your damage But because of it. […]

I don’t get many things right the first time. I screw up quite a lot. Sometimes I’m reckless, brash, insensitive, and emotionally distant. Sometimes the littlest of things make me tear up, like when I see a father lulling his baby to sleep, or when I see a hapless child begging on the hostile street. […]

He was never the commitment type. Commitments suffocate him. He always fantasizes about meeting someone gorgeous, someone sexy, someone skillful in pleasing a man. And that this someone is crazy about him, and would always, always want to meet up with him with no strings attached. Then alas, he found her. The girl of his […]
