Little outbursts of emotion – it’s all in the past though

Wild as wind; dated July 15, 2011 at 6:27pm

As lonesome the wind may be
Yet carefree it always is
As comforting little pleasures may seem
Yet disappointing expectations end up being

Monkey rush; dated June 7, 2011 at 9:29pm

Perhaps it comes across as too rushed
But it is not a time to be hush-hush
Time and tide wait for no man
So why not grab the chance while you can
One should not woo in haste
Yet bear in mind that flowers wither in days
If there is still no affirmation in due
Then perhaps he is just not into you

Jane in Pride and Prejudice; dated May 22, 2011 at 10:51pm

Are we both like Jane, too cautious and too reserved?
If so, we will grow old on our own
And perhaps in our last breath
Then we will realise that the feeling is mutual all along

So unexpectedly; dated October 21, 2010 at 9:30pm

Once thought to be gone from sight
Appeared right up in the very next flight
Once thought to be a remote contact
Appeared as one possible mean to check
Yet again the contact is broken
Any possibility to move, there wasn’t
Momentary surprise came for the breath to hold on
And so an illusion is what it was all along

as i spoke to you at a distance
there was silence
yet, you continued to smile

as i dreamt of you the only time
there was departure
still, you continued to smile

as i tried to build a bridge to reach you
there came darkness
i could no longer see your smiles

as i attempted to search for you
there came interruption
i could not get any word on you

More than i expected; dated September 6, 2010 at 5:09pm

Each day i look up at the sky
Hoping to catch a glimpse of you
The chances may be slim
But there is a hope
A hope to see your shadow
Or that smile that brightens up my day
Now that you are gone
Never to be seen here again
i know you did not choose it
The wind dictates your direction
How can i find you again
This passing cloud that had caught my eye
Is it somewhere out there
Is that the only comfort i can have
That we might be wishing on the same bright star
That we are sleeping underneath the same big sky

Will i see you again; dated September 2, 2010 at 12:43am

Smileys and greetings,
were all that were between.
A passing cloud …
is that all that you were being?

Get out of sight please; dated August 17, 2010 at 8:59pm

Misleading thought that you weren’t around
What luck to bump into you smiling with sound
The mood went one round with ups and downs
From being happy to feeling quite down

Grey; dated July 16, 2010 at 11:06pm

This morning I picked and chose
I saw you, you smiled, I smiled
This afternoon I passed by you
I knew that you, looked and saw
This evening the number became three
Once again, smiling was the in-thing
On this day the tops were gloomy
Yet in the heart, the mood was sunny

When I dream of you; dated July 7, 2010 at 9:54pm

My first dream of you,
you were leaving …
Is this a sign,
I should believe in?

A distance; dated July 5, 2010 at 11:20pm

None about you today
It is a peaceful day
Stay a distance like the star
Let me just watch you from afar

Missing you; dated July 4, 2010 at 12:35am

A little tugging at the heart
Getting you out of mind is so hard
Your smile comes to mind
and i close my eyes

Stop smiling at me; dated July 3, 2010 at 1:21am

Big smile from afar
Yet no reply so far
Did you not receive it
Or am i not getting it

All in the mind; dated July 1, 2010 at 11:55pm

On days i miss you badly
The time passes so slowly
At times when i am so busy
Forgetting comes naturally

That feeling; dated June 26, 2010 at 1:24am

Never mine from the start
It was just a wish
A simple smile from the heart
My love was totally his


Eats, Shoots & Leaves – Lynne Truss

This is a very enlightening read on punctuation; something which I myself have taken for granted.
And no, it is not dull or dry at all. In fact, it is full of wicked humour.

There is this quote in here: Punctuation is a courtesy designed to help readers understand a story without stumbling.
(But I have to say that many people do not seem to have much courtesy nowadays, do they?)

Some examples to show the importance of punctuation to words in a story; just as the importance of threads to fabric in a piece of clothing (this is quoted from the book as well):

A woman, without her man, is nothing.
A woman: without her, man is nothing.

Every Lady in this Land
Hath 20 Nails on each Hand;
Five & twenty on Hands and Feet;
And this is true, without deceit.

(Every lady in this land has twenty nails. On each hand, five; and twenty on hands and feet.)
To think that everything in this world has a history; even an apostrophe has one too. Is this not amazing?
