Daily Prompt: Why, Thank You?

What’s the best (or rather, worst) backhanded compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve?

Last month, I visited my mom’s aunt who kept telling me that I was very cute when I was a kid. She spoke so often that I felt like my grown-up version kind of failed her expectation. I didm’ think she meant to do that, however her compliments made me feel that way.

25 DAYS | 25 SONGS – DAY 16: Cry Cry Cry


I once cried out loud in a concert almost 15 years ago. It was the concert performed by my most favourite Thai band; Moderndog. They covered a song by Depeche Mode which I had never heard of it before that time. Its name was Somebody. I was impacted by its lyrics immensely. So much that I couldn’t keep the sound of my sob low.

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought and
With every breath
Someone who’ll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don’t want to be tied
To anyone’s strings
I’m carefully trying to steer clear of
Those things
But when I’m asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I’ll get away with it
