Sonnet

I hate you.

I hate you for breaking down that
Dam that I had carefully built to
Hold back all those emotions that
Were – are – not needed.

I hate you for making me promise to
Love you always, if God so ordains
To hold me – who has difficulty
Keeping even promises to myself –
To that promise I made for the
Love I have for you, no less.

I hate you for realising the
Impossibility of us finally, then
Leave me in the lurch of our devices
Drowning in all this love gushing
Blood-red, out of my veins.

I hate you for saying I shouldn’t
Be feeling this way, that I should have
A hold over this cuz you told me so
Because one cannot love to order.

I hate you for falling for another
Because you cannot fall for me
Because it hurts so much when
I am loving you still with a
Selfish, possessive love, for I am
Only human and incapable yet of
Unconditionally loving.

I hate you for this situation we are in
This “I don’t know what you are
To me” mode where I am living in
Limbo between feeling and unfeeling
Hold back and show, life and death.

I hate you for still having a hold
Over me, that despite everything
I can no longer leave you, God knows
How hard I tried and I hate myself
For feeling that way because hey,
I want to love you always right?

I hate you.

天长地久 • Timeless

Solvil et Titus once ran a series of commercials featuring renowned Hong Kong stars, moving storylines and that unforgettable tagline, which I suspect, greatly influenced the way I love. Here’s my translated take on it and my favourite commercial from the series.

不在乎天长地久
Not for love timeless
只在乎曾经拥有。
But having once loved.

Daily Prompt: Bury

But to immortalise her
Love, it first had to die, then
Frozen in its passionate glory
Buried within the depths of
Her heart, full in beauty
Like it would never
Live again.

Wildest

Look into my eyes
And tell me that you see
The passion that courses
In our wildest fantasies.

Run Away

Run away with wisdom
Pick up a little strength
Come back to me with passion
And in these arms you’ll rest.

Eternity

Come now to me
And bring me into you
Let our souls entwine and fuse
As one like they used to;
Take me as I am, no
Pretenses, nothing to hide
For eternity is near, when
Once again you’re by my side.

The Guitarplayer

Inspired while bantering with guitarist in question, which message I would say is an extension of the original.
