Beautiful Stranger


I could write you
seven billion words of love
and hold you tight
when your demons came for you.

But they were all you knew.

In that moment,
I became the beautiful stranger in the distance.

I wish I had the strength
to break my heart again
while I watched you give into them
but I’m here waiting on this side.

Still holding onto you.



Sometimes life throws you an
unexpected curve ball,
but HE
is beyond worthy adjectives,
we are the odd trans-Asian Skype call
of laughter, tears and fears.
A friendship
filled with the unconventional ‘I told you so’s,
unsolicited advice that needs to be said,
and arms that are forever open; no judgment.
Something that
doesn’t break each other down,
but silently builds us up.
He might not be my closest friend,
yet HE
kinda is my best friend.

Why I wrote this:
Do you have that friend that you don’t talk to everyday but when you do it’s like no time has passed at all? That friend who is so close that no matter the distance and changing time zones, the friend is right there with you? This piece was for that friend.
