When The Dust Settles: Thailand

When The Dust Settles: Thailand

Who will finish
your jigsaw heart
when he leaves,
taking pieces with him?
Who told you to play
with unbeatable men?

Men who let you
love loneliness
out of them
gifting it back to you
wondering why
you return half full.

He is a desert
you, the oasis
desperate to
hydrate and keep
the hope of love;
a cruel mirage.

Distil Bar, Bangkok

I leave a minute part of me in every city that I visit [and love].

While my Bangkok experience differed significantly to the last time I was there some years ago, I was no less sad when leaving Thailand this time, than I was previously.

This trip was noteworthy for three major reasons:

  1. Bearing witness to my friend from High School marrying the love of her life in one of the most beautiful celebrations I have ever attended
  2. Being abroad with High School friends I hadn’t travelled with since our trip to Barcelona 8 years ago (we do, however, meet up in the UK)
  3. Spending time with a friend from University I hadn’t seen in 7 years who happened to be in Thailand at the same time

Beautiful yet bittersweet memories are currently hugging my heart.

Below are some pictures from my last night:

      Thanks girl.. supposedly birds of a feather flock together so I figured if I stick with them, people will think I’m smart by association 😉 haha! I kid I kid
      Having said that, I have some ‘diverse’ friends too – you know everybody gotta have a ratchet friend or two – for comedic value if nothing more!
      As for the heart break – I might need a glass of wine and one of your delicious creations for that conversation *sigh*

        Aw shit! Yup – you def need a rachet ass friend, if only to keep you in balance.

        And we should find some time to skype or something then.
        That is, if you still wanna talk about it? Because sometimes you just wanna move the f*** on too lol

          lol! I think I’m in the move on stage but I don’t mind talking about it for laughs if nothing more – it’s like something out of a movie!
          We should definitely Skype! 🙂

            Ok, we’ll figure a good time to skype.
            Probably after Christmas.

            I look forward to it!
