Dear Jane

do you remember

the day you were sitting at the desolate corner

weeping silently like a child who had lost her mother

because you discovered Jim has another lover?

You thought you were alone

but I saw you across the room

I walked towards you

and you glanced up,

despair and hopelessness were all written on your face

Words can't seem to come out from my mouth

so I offered you my shoulder to lean on

That day

my shirt was all wet with your tears

but I didn't bother at all

Dear Jane

do you recall

the day you lied to my face

when I asked how that wide slit got on your skin?

You averted my gaze

and said it was an accident

but we both knew

that wasn't the truth at all

Oh Jane

why did you have to be so foolish

as to mutilate yourself

as to taint your fair skin

as to waste your precious blood

just for a worthless man like Jim?

Darling, don't hurt yourself

for a despicable man like him does not deserve you

Dear Jane

do you recollect

the day you held up my hand

and confessed your love before me?

You said you got over Jim

and you are now head over heels in love with me

because I am always so nice to you

so considerate and compassionate towards you

But Jane

deep inside my heart, I know

I can never give you the happiness that you deserve

and I can never bestow you the love that you desire


Please don't harm yourself again

Please don't dodge me when you see me

just because I rejected your love

I want us to be great friends

but I never want to be another Jim in your list

Oh Jane, be rest assured

Your Prince Charming will arrive

and when he does

he will bring abundant joy to your soul

and fill your heart with all his love

Though he may not be coming now

he will be when the time is right

but he's just not me

Dear Jane

you need to realize

how wonderful and how beautiful

how special and how unique

are you

Though a man may complete you

he can never define you

Though a man may provide you security

he can never do that unless you stop being insecure


do not let anyone

to take away the goodness

and the innocence

that are overflowing in your spirit

It's time to be a big girl

and decide your own fate and happiness

Be strong and be courageous

There are so much more in life other than romance and men

Treasure the beauty around you

Cherish the wonder beside you

And peace and bliss will always be with you
