i wish i could find a way to let you go.

There are four kinds of people in this world, Ms Harper. Those who build walls. Those who protect walls. Those who breach walls. And those who tear down walls. Much of life is discovering who you are. When you find out, you also realize there are places you can no longer go, things you can no longer do, words you can no longer say.

traffic was heavy.
it was pouring.
the wipers going at maximum speed.
one hand on the wheel,
the other on the phone.
was it a death wish?

safe in shelter.
there's no more rain.
time to step on the brake.
no, don't want to;
but got to.
step harder
on the accelerator
on reverse.

two hours ago.
stuck in the jam.
a virtue
getting past the congestion.
unanticipated onlooking,
what a sight.

blue tent.

from deep inside
tears welled.
holding a picture of
an ideal world,
resisting the urge to crush it
or throw it away.

tear drops fell
and made it
a water colour painting.
too good to exist.

fast forward.
back to reality.
close both eyes
squeeze remaining tears out.
let it out,
let go.
hands off the wheel.
hit a wall.




but all the rumours out there hurts me so
you're stuck in my mind
even i tried so hard to replace you.

it's time to realise you're never mine and say goodbye.
