Love in Little Tokyo

You are like a suicide in Little Tokyo

Horror in a neon culture that makes us hold each other

You ask would the rain brutally murder water-walking Jesus

You are the appeal unknown to the stable

You are a shine far beneath moonlight

To love you

Is to love surrounded by smogged purples and blues

You call like the first cigarette

And speak like the last

 

We were always wrong for each other

I live a life of midnights peeling wax

Using a candle to see what I’m doing

So I kiss you like we are not built to last

Just to be the last

The lonely ones

The only ones

To hold each other

Like there’s a suicide in Little Tokyo

Two Sentence Short stories

“You can’t make a story with just two sentences”!

“Watch me”.

 

After the wing healed, I let her go.

I believed in angels after that.

“That may be, but I’ll live with her”.

 

“You deserve someone who knows you better.

And here, I saved you the blue M&Ms”.

 

A tree landed on my car before it spun out of control.

I got out of my car and said “Thanks Dad, and rest in peace”.

 

“I like things a gentleman should not enjoy” he said.

“I’ve got handcuffs in my bag” she replied with a smile.

Pokédate

pokemon-go

Dropping a lure was the perfect lonliness cure

I caught a Pikachu

A Jinx

And you

You’re as pretty and rare as Mew

And I hoped I could be your Mew too

I must have had a lucky egg in my inventory

Because this could be the perfect love story

So we share locations for poké stops and gyms

And you ask is there a her as I ask is there a him

We smile and decide to hatch these ten kilometer eggs with company

So we’re walking and talking when suddenly

You see a gym and dive into action with a Butterfree

And I say that gym is already taken by me

It says on your phone that it’s ruled by Valor but you must have missed it”

Then you broke my heart when you said you were Team Mystic

I can’t believe we Pokédated

Mystic is overrated

Valor is this gyn’s ruler

Articuno may be cold but Moltres is cooler

You can try and take that gym but I won’t let it be

Our love has fainted

And so will your Butterfree

Moon Over Me

Seven billion members of humankind

And me

With a difference the mirror cannot see

The earth was not the first to touch my feet

I spend my nights looking at the stone in the sky

After days of mingling with a species that isn’t mine

 

Seven billion members of humankind

And she

Is the one with a heartbeat for me

She assumes I am what she can see

She thinks we are in tune

But my heart points me to the moon

 

Seven billion members of humankind

And we

Were born not to be

I want to reach inside of me

Remould what is wrong and have a human heart

Our true loves are so close but we are too far aparteye-1202254_1280

(I learnt sign language)

At least I didn’t have the problem

Of trying to say something

I rest my hands on the table

She raises an eyebrow

More accustomed and educated with this language

(but…)

And she gave a pause

Just like spoken word

She continued

(why? That’s a whole language. And-)

I cut in

Clasping my hands over the rapid movement of her speech

And resting them on the table

(because you sound interesting)
