a moment of cruelty

she
she comes here everyday
to see me
she tells me
about her day
her life
her work
her dreams

i could see her desires
sense her loneliness

i
i was tempted
to
have
fun

in a moment of cruelty
i offer myself
to her
today
just before she
leaves

for the satisfaction
of knowing
that
i could have her
but i won't,

i take it back
just when she breaks into

a

sad

smile

"Closed"? You should come over to Malaysia next X'mas then. Everything is "Open" and on "Sale"!

I had X'mas dinner with a few expat. Being the only Malay there who doesn't drink, it's quite an effort to explain to everyone I don't drink. After turning down the drinks, I thought I was safe. Tengok2, the food was prepared with wine and liquor. Demmit! Nasib laa, asalkan wine and liquor halal. :op

They later went bar hopping, I went straight home to snuggle under the duvet for a good read.

I did quite a bit last weekend, a good weekend I'd say. :o)

enche zuhri

you can relate? to the she or the he, who's taking advantage of the situation?

that was based on a conversation by a group of men i over heard in coffee bean subang parade. be careful when bragging OK, I can hear.
