i wake with a song in my heart

it is a joyous song

its beat is pure and simple

its melody is clear and uplifting

the song is you, my dearest love

As we part

As we part, originally uploaded by maotai.

longing reflected from your eyes

stabs my heart with its steely blade

i fear to know the fullness of the pain

for as we part that it will surely be

Simple meal

Simple meal, originally uploaded by maotai.

simple meal for a simple man. hong wen mutton soup at beauty world plaza.

brings back memories of maotai and friends during pre-u days. when we would pontang the last session for the day and rush over to capitol cinema. there was a food alley there and the chinese mutton soup was divine.

most of you are too young and would have no idea that there was even a food alley there :)

so ask a respected elder like a parent or uncle or aunty. anyone who can help me track down that chinese mutton soup will get a bottle of maotai from uncle maotai. LOL

what i want you cannot give me, she said

you cannot and will not offer it because that is the way you are

when we first met five years ago

i sense the danger to my being, the possible heartache, the pain

i know you are a well, your walls are smooth and your waters deep

for five years i enjoyed you on the few occasions

when you came into town, sipping wine and coffee

talking of our common interests, having great meals

i know you are a well, you are deep and your waters refreshing

i tasted waters from the well and it quenched my thirst

i think i did right for the five years, i went on with my life

i immersed myself in my work not thinking about the impossible

i found myself a boyfriend who looks like you

thinking that probable is better than the impossible

i think i did right for the five years

till four nights back

you called we met and i started thinking 'just once' 'only once'

as we walked your warmth overwhelmed me

as we sat across the table i wanted you

'just once' 'only once'

to have what i do not have cannot have will not have

'just once' 'only once'

i think i did right for the five years

then that was four nights back

i drank i drank deeply and sank into the well

you are a deep well your walls are smooth i find no escape

bring me to the top release me

i cannot do it alone i do not have the strength

i hate you

i did right for the five years

i love you

please release me

... and we cried, bound.
