Haunting Dreams
You come,
a visitor in the night.
The feel of your gaze,
your touch,
your breath,
it is all too real.
I remember your whispers
and I hear your laugh;
those words that make me smile
as you hold me gently in your arms.
You and I,
me and you,
we are all that exist,
all that I know,
all that I remember.
When I awake from slumber,
these are but haunted memories.
Moments that court my fears.
Shall you haunt my dreams,
or will you haunt my reality too?

ever closer, ever deeper,
ever more.
within touch,
beyond reach,
without words.
but merely fiction.
Struggling to escape
it pours into me
and out of me.
Filling me,
emptying me,
surrounding me,
shadowing me,
draining me.
I cannnot think,
but I can write.
I can feel the words
at my fingertips,
in my head, in my mind, on my lips.
Surge of emotions and thoughts,
aligned but confused,
organized but distraught.
Too much, too little, too late.

With eyes that wander
it searches
it moves
yet it cannot see me
with fingers that search
it reaches out
into the darkness
yet it cannot feel me
with a voice that calls
it softly whispers
it calls out loudly
yet it cannot hear me
I am here
can't you see me
feel me
hear me
here i stand unmoving
lost in the world
as it swallows me
as if i am nothing
it has devoured me
can you see me now
i am one with you
see me
feel me
hear me
i am here

Hello Graduation

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 30, 2010, 2:40 PM

Hello unemployment

Well, a few days ago, I graduated from my university! WoOt! How awesome is that. I now have a degree in Chinese Studies, and no, I cannot speak Chinese fluently though I have plans of going to China soon so that I can take more classes and immerse myself in the culture and the language. As of now, I'm unemployed but I'm resting a bit before obsessively looking for jobs. I've applied to my brother's school so far and did a couple of interviews and that's been about it. Oh, I'm helping my mom with some writing gigs and she's paying me for my work so at least I have that.

Graduation at my university was a little less exciting than my high school one. We only had one day of practice for ours, as compared to around 2 weeks of practice during my high school graduation. Looking at myself, I still can't imagine that I've already finished university. Then again, I look pretty young, from what a lot of people tell me. I could probably still pass off as a high school student, or maybe even an elementary student if I go to the US or Europe maybe. Oh the advantages and disadvantages of being Asian. :)

Oh wow, my sub is ending again. Lol. I really want to thank my good friend (whom I've never met in real life and only met through deviantart) Khyoon for giving me my sub for the last 3 months. I sort of feel sad and disappointed in myself that I haven't really been updating. In fact, I haven't thought of any real poetic things in a while. T__T Oh no, inspiration, kindly strike me again, even if it's in the middle of the night.

I seriously HAVE TO UPDATE soon. I miss seeing my updated entries on deviantart.

Hopefully, now that I'm not going to school anymore, and with my plans to go to China on hold until I get everything straightened out, I will be able to update even more. There are so many things I need to do and SO MUCH time to do so. Haha.

I need to update my id here. I need to update my fanfiction stories. I need to clean up my room. I need to renew my passport. I need to get my student's permit. I need to learn how to drive. I need to learn how to cook. I need to write more poetry. I need to NOT BUM AROUND.

Yeah, a lot of stuff on my list. :P

toki88's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
I am mostly a writer and a reader.
I enjoy romance novels, and books that talk about European or Chinese history.
I take photos as a hobby, though I haven't done any real of photography in a while (except with my iphone).
I am very talkative, and my brain is always whizzing about with ideas and thoughts, which mostly keeps me up at night, but is also responsible for a lot of my poetry as this is when inspiration strikes me.

I speak at least 5 languages, 2 of them semi-fluently to fluently, and the rest with varying degrees of conversational fluency.

Currently in: Manila, Philippines
