Just before dark, Mission Bay. click photo to enlarge.

Why does the sky seems so grey
Is it because of me
There’s no one left in sight
I feel the world closing in

Of all the places I’ve been to
All the people I’ve seen
People come and go
But memories, the memories of them cast footprints in my heart

As time goes by, I learn it’s all the grand plan of life
Of all the love and broken hearts
Of all the victories and battles
We’ll rise and shine again

    So where do broken hearts go?

    P.S.: Good grief! Have I been spammed too? Come to think of it, makes sense! STP = SPAM, what you get in tins! Very fat! Hahahahahahahha!!!!

    CC: Deep in a corner of our hearts, there’s a room where you can see traces of the broken pieces.
    Since I love SPAM so much, it must mean I love STP!! 😀

    nice poetry and pics.. 🙂

    CC: Hello, thank you! 🙂 Hope to see you around.

    Yes life always does go on even when we are the most heartbroken and feel like everything is over it just keeps moving. Do people just get used to heartbreak with time? I think they probably are less stung by it because they know it will be coming.

    CC: I agree with you. Sometimes the pain is less intense because we’re numbed to it. But life does go on, and cliche as it is, time is the best medicine.


  4. emotionalistic Says:

    That is how i am feeling today. Soon everything will turned into memories.

    CC: And funnily enough, a few years down the road, when we look back, it won’t be that bad afterall. Hope you’re feeling ok now. 🙂


  5. eiling Says:

    When there’s night, there’ll be day. Every broken heart will be mend through time.

    CC: Just like ying and yang, everything has its balance.

    I like the words “We’ll rise and shine again”!

    CC: 😀


  9. Liz aka Kess' Mama Says:

    The last stanza of the poem is what we should all focus on. The time will come when we will rise again again after a season of sadness.

    CC: Indeed, when face with sadness in our life, we should learn to focus on the positive things and remember however bad the situation is, it will pass.

    poignant and sweet 🙂

    on a different note, akismet has been letting through lots of spam trackbacks recently.

    CC: Thank you! So far I haven’t had any trackback problem (touch wood!), it just keep trowing a few people’s comment to the spam bin. LOL


  11. Daryl Says:

    People are good at compensating. We just fill our lives with other things. It does not always help but life goes on.

    CC: You’re right, we all have that in us, it’s our survivor’s instinct.


  12. nic Says:

    that’s thought-provoking… which one comes first? the photo or the poetry?

    CC: The photo. 😉


  13. day-dreamer Says:

  14. Jemima Says:

    No love can cross our destiny’s path without leaving some mark on it forever.

    memories of them cast footprints in my heart.

    very true.

    We will, only if we believe!

    CC: Belief is important, yes. 🙂


  20. BaLQiZ Says:

    A journey in life is meaningless without leaving traces of broken hearts behind coz without it, you dont learn anything.

    And yes, they call it “broken heart” coz Mad Cow Disease is already taken

    CC: You are so right BaLQiZ. Those very memories are what make our journey colourful.
    You always crack me up! 😀


  21. mistipurple Says:

    BaLQiZ is funny. moooooooo..

    CC: She sure is!! I love her wicked sense of humour. 😀


  22. Che-Cheh Says:

    We survive on memories. Memories of the past, current and future.

    CC: We do! Memories are something we hold dear to our hearts.


  23. Jeremy C Says:


    broken hearts can be mended through time, but there’ll always be scars left…

    i guess that’s how we grow.

    CC: True, and overtime, they turn into memories, memories we treasure.

    This is the process of life. Something that we cannot avoid once we are in the community.

  26. annant Says:

    with time, we might get over da heart-breaking
    with time, we might heal

    sigh, it’s gonna leave a scar which will still remind us about da heart-breaking event 🙁

    CC: Ironically, the scars are going to be remembered with fondness as time goes by.

  34. tekkaus Says:

    That’s part an parcels of life. There is rise and there must be fall. It’s not how many times we fall and rise that matters. What matter the most is how we rise above all hardship. Well, God is helping you indirectly…If He take you every blow, you’ll never grow right? Adversities has its advantages.

    P.s.: You are so darn good with photography huh! Care to teach? LOL =D

    CC: It’s all part of the journey, the broken pieces are those form the memories we’ll come to cherish.
    Thanks for your compliment. I’m just an amateur snapping away, let’s share and learn together! ;D

    I pretty wondering..how could you have a lot of creative idea to snap all the good photo. I am really admire it. Do you go for professional training in photography before or just a self thought.

    CC: No professional training in photography. I pretty much just snap anything I find interesting. Of course it doesn’t hurt to have a creative husband too, we bound ideas off each other. I learn a lot of technical skills from him. 😀 Thanks for the compliment.
