Silent Treatment

It has been a while since I did rhyme one. Time to oil those rusty gears.
I wished that you would say something
Not because you owed me anything
Don't pretend to be a sphinx
I want to know what you think
Is this ship on its way to sinking
Or are you on your way sailing
Your silence means many things
But to me, this means everything.

This Is A Break Up

This piece was inspired by The Greatest Showman's song, 'This Is Me'. I performed this spoken word piece at my first 'featurette' for Malam Sayu Berpuisi. It was the rare opportunity to perform at KLPAC. I sang part of the chorus as the finale of this piece. I tried to use the many different elements that I have learned from the workshops that I attended in 2017.
break1 bre…™k verb verb: break; 3rd person present: breaks; past tense: broke; gerund or present participle: breaking; past participle: broken 1. separate into pieces as a result of a blow, shock, or strain.
Hello, can you hear me?
You are B-b-b-b-b-b-breakin up
Eight days, 8 months, 8 years
That is a loooooong time to be
a p a r t . . .
Break my aching heart
Into pieces that
Rake my fields of joy
Break apart like a tree struck by lightning
Split in half, burnt to a crisp
Collapsed, defeated.
