PO Box


So, earlier today, I saw a post on Tumblr by somebody I follow, about a PO Box he recently opened and then he encouraged us to write him letters, and promised that he will read and answer each of them!

It thrilled me. When I was younger, I used to write letters to my usual correspondents – my friends and Kuya Bob (I’ll write a separate post about him). Oh, the feeling of waiting for Mr. Mailman to arrive carrying the responses to my letters! It was such a rush to receive a letter. It feels so personal, so special.

I have been wanting to write and send letters to friends, to people, anyone! So, this week, I’ll visit some nearby post offices and ask if they rent out PO boxes. I sure hope they do, because I’d like to write people from all over the world and gain new friends from it. 🙂

Once I get a PO Box, (crossing fingers) I’ll post it here and perhaps you can write me. 🙂

Let’s get back to writing letters!

All Ye Secretkeepers


 

Sssshhh! Can you keep a secret?

I’m afraid I cannot hide it anymore –
It’s building up, stone by stone.

To you whom I keep an unknown,
Burning passion – as revolting
Though it might be, and as taboo as can be
I desire your hands around me

To you whom I ardently hate
With your unsightly face and
Unreliable brain
One day I shall let you know –
But for now I’d bother with a poem

And you who dislike me,
Or loathe or whatever
This I say to you:
Suck it!

You who loves me,
Do you really? How do I know?
Have I been passing in your life
for far too long?

You whom I love greatly, in this life
And the after life
Please love me back as fiercely

A secret desire to dominate
A secret desire to be submissive,
Deep, dark secrets
Snaking in, as sinister as the Amazon

We are all pretentious humans
We can never be true enough
Want a secret? I’ll tell you one!
A secret is something you can never keep
So spit it out and let’s hear it!

Try as you may to hide one,
It leaks out of you – through your eyes,
Movements, jumbled words, and in poems
Without you knowing!

An angel and devil incarnate,
As honest as a liar can get,
Ssshhh! Can you keep a secret?
I’m afraid I’ll expose them as well as myself —
