Because they remain

But you know Hajime, some feelings cause us pain because they remain.

– South of the Border, West of the Sun: Haruki Murakami –

This quote really suits me well for my one-side love situation. It’s not that easy for me to stop my feeling for him even though I’ve came to the conclusion that he will never replicate my feeling.

The heart is such a complex organ. The more we try to get rid of that feeling, the more it remains. Hopefully, it will go away as soon as possible.

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?

Daily Post

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

25-songs-blog-challenge

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

Iceland 2014

An 11 day trip driving, hiking and camping in the stunning landscapes of Iceland. The raw, harsh beauty of the country is impossible to capture on camera, but I hope I’ve retained an essence of it. The true majesty of this place can only truly be appreciated in person, and I can’t recommend it enough! Excellent company certainly helps too.
