joanne: in my own words

Let me sing a song for you,
Please sit and listen to the tune,
This ain't no song of greatness,
But only a voice of a girl,
Singing about her world.

So let me sing a song for you,
Please please please, do listen to the tune,
All I wish is for you to hear me,
As I sing about my days,
Now sing with me if you may.

Sitting in front of my laptop. Staring blankly at the beeping cursor. Thinking deeply about what I should be writing here.

It seems to me I'm experiencing some kind of a writer's block here. In search for the most suitable words or perhaps, I'm currently at a lost for words. No inspiration to write. But why?

So much has happened lately in such a short period of time. It's something like this. You've been given an inch thick romance novel to read within one minute. Do you even have time to turn the pages? There is so much to process in so little time. And on top of that, you would like to give your feedbacks on what you've been given to read for the past one minute.

I find that sometimes, our love stories are exactly like the ones from the movies - so coincidental, so planned and so predictable. But our love stories can also be extremely complicated at the same time. There is no way of telling how it starts and continues and of course how it ends, if the most unfortunate must happen.

I, myself, am caught up in a situation which involves a possible end to a love story and probably, a start to a new one. Well, we all hate to be in a situation like this - a situation of uncertainty; a situation where you are torn between two, unsure about which road is the best to take. It sucks, doesn't it?

But what I can really say is that I do agree with that one person despite hating the fact of having to sit around and wait some more. Let Time do the work and Love will take its own course, naturally.

To that one person, the ball is in your court now. We have come a long way and have had histories. Years ago, we boarded the same boat but I chose to jump off and left you sailing on your own. It wasn't our time. After that, you went on a new boat and I did the same and we headed for different directions. But what if we are crossing paths now? I've explained all there is to know about me. This has nothing to do with the other person. This is solely about you and me.
