Thoughts Of A Stargazer


I know that, I know that
She did it, She didn’t,
Mean it, She meant to
Show love when she loved you
I know that, I knew that
She fell for a dreamer
I fell when she fell
And we fell in forever

She said she was sorry
My anger was envy
My thirst was an engine
I wanted to begin
Again and I know that
I hate her, I liked her
I want her, I loved her
My lung’s irritated
My sense, agitated
My core lying wasted
You’re eyes are a forest
And I’m in the woods again

And again, it just sinks in my mind
Again and again, and I’m trying to fight it
I’ll never endeavor to look for another
You’re my collider, the reason I’m everywhere
You impact, I impact, we sparkle and shatter
You lost track, I’m intact, My hands are together
I get it, I’m neither a loved or a lover
I’m just a moment but you’re my forever.

This was written by my friend. He’s a lowkey-type of guy and he has passion for music, literature and serving the campus in his way (he has this habit of picking up garbage/s whenever he sees one or two). I began admiring him since I met him on TINGOG. He was supposed to run this KASAMA elections but he said that he decided to prioritize his family first.

To the stargazer, keep writing bro! You’re inspiring a lot of people through your works and I just want you to know that… I’m your secret fan.


Your astrophile sister,



Departure From A Chance


I’ve known you since the time
We’ve bumped in this corner
Where we make everything fine
And I thought you’re my forever.

Amazingly weird, it is
How quick you were able to get me
We had small things to share with
Yet out of it, we felt glee.

You never failed to make me giggle
With your jokes, corny as ever
Unaware, my heart is on wiggle
When you do talk, bright and clever.

But in a snap, we’ve changed
From giggles to distance.
Everything becomes strange
All I could do is glance.

Then I realized, we’re not fit
Not perfect for each other
You have her; you shut the sparks you lit
So I’ll leave and find another.

You got me hanging
I thought what we had’s a reality
So now, I’ll be departing
From this possibility.

(A late New Year poetry I wrote last night.)

Another year just passed
Old book closed; a new book just opened
Time’s been flying fast
And memories got frozen.

I see sparks in the sky
Golden noises everywhere
Smiles that make the mood high
A moment no one can compare.

I now have a list
Of new adventures to enter.
But these are just the least
The unknowns are such thrillers.

Happy and fired-up
I’ll face this new year
No one can make me stop
From living with no fear.



Soliloquy Of A Depressed

(Since someone asked why I’m being craven for the past weeks. I’m sorry, but this is all I can say for now.)


Darkness cover my place
As I listen to sober music
Tears roll down my face
I’m starting to get sick.

While you are getting light
Smiling, out and proud
Everything around you is right
Your laugh is heard, so loud.

You always ask me if I’m fine
Concerned, yet so blind and numb
Don’t con me by being kind
Not anymore, for I’m not dumb.

I won’t tell you why
Leave hints or show it full
I’ll stay away, perhaps a mile
And drown, deep in this sad pool.

Silently Hoping

(In collaboration with one of my dearest bestfriends, Paul Andrew Mancia)

*We wrote this out of boredom and it surprised us that the rants we’ve written can be connected that’s why we combined it all to create a long poem. My dearest Paul, thank you for the time you’ve given to collaborate. I had so much fun. Hugs and kisses!


‘Twas a cold night
When tears flooded our cheeks
A painful pact has been made
That ended us broken for distance.

Now we’re torn apart,
The garden we’ve bloomed
And our shattered hearts
Has faced its doom
And turned into white and black.

Yet I still hope,
Our memories entangled
Like the roots beneath the shadows
That reaches my soul.

I thought I found freedom
By breaking what we have
But unconsciously, I bounded myself
In chains of misery and loneliness.

Now I’m alone,
Waiting for something..
I don’t know.

Remembering the things
We used to share,
But deep within myself
It is only I,
Who yearns yesterday

Looking back
Realizing how much I have lost
Made me say to myself
How stupid I was
For not fighting hard
The sake of the love
That was once ours
Is now shattered into pieces
And thrown into a place
That only us can find and fix.

But how?
How will I go
If I can’t find you first
The key is on your hand.

Will you stay and say yes?
And restart what we have ended?
