Surrounded by tiny pieces
glass of hope
Shattered all over the floor.
You walked out of the door
And left me with nothing
but your memories.
I went to a café one day
I heard your favorite song being played.
I started to hum the tune
Still inflicted by the footprints
you left behind.
Then I ordered coffee at the counter
“Careful, it’s hot,” the barista said.
As he handed me the cup in front of me
I looked at him while tears
formed in my eyes
You used to tell me the same thing.
But here I am, pulling myself together
Enduring the pain of footprints left by you
When you were gone.

Send me the best BW Tampal!

I am always passionate when it comes to writing. I started writing at a young age, the aftermath when I became fond of reading books. Growing up, what I usually carry inside my bag became my solace; an ordinary pen and a notebook which comes out as my handy buddy because words and ideas could pop up anytime. Instead of bottling my emotions inside, I decided to write the things which I couldn’t tell anyone else. As of now, I am working as an Assistant Teacher, though it’s a full time job, I can still write poetry, short stories, and novels. Last year, I was able to self-publish my first book Behind These Words: Poetry and Prose and my first novel A Chance to be Loved, a gift of satisfaction to myself, both are available for purchase on Amazon. Aside from writing, I’m also fascinated about traveling, photography, and painting. One thing which keeps my passion for writing burning is the fact that there are some people out there who are motivated to write because I always make sure to share to others my motivation why I keep on writing; no matter what happens, never let your ink dry and just keep on writing.
