Halves Finding Other Halves

​I spent all the time that I had, convincing myself that I am not a missing piece;

that I was complete. 

But upon meeting you, 

I realised that all along 

I had just been another half 

and with you I feel whole.

​I called for you so many times. 

I don’t know if you can hear me. 

They say distance isn’t always the reason;

Though they may be referring to distance in the literal sense. 

Because there are distances in the pauses we make during speech… 

And there are distances in the body weight we take during affection.

Hurricane Girls 

​I could have came into your life as a natural disaster;

I heard hurricanes were females, 

And the boys behaved like  tornadoes. 

I was too late for the tsunami, 

but too early for the earthquakes. 

I came to you 

as typical as the sunsets

but far less beautiful. 

And still, 

You felt my breezes, 

welcomed me into your arms,

and loved me in the palm of your hands.
