Come, Sit With Me (my princess) – michnavs

come sit with me
let’s talk ’bout
how things used to be
when the world was better
and things were nicer
when a walk in the beach
alongside a crowd
was full of fun
bumping at each other
making new friends
along the way
when watching
the sun set
was so much joy
while arguing as who
had the best shot
or who captured
the raging red orange color
transitioned into a soft
pale yellow hue
as the sky awaits
for night
to take over
and when darkness
sweep over
i’d lay my head on your shoulder
as we watch the world in
beautiful, complete chaos
the waves came crashing
the wind is blowing
into a goodnight sleep


I bet this is how my afternoon conversation with my father be like, if he is still alive, with the current pandemic. He will remind me of how we would hurry down the beach (in Boracay, we spent so many summers there) just to witness the crowd gathered waiting for the sunset. We had by then the traditional camera, each of us will try our luck for one best sunset shot which we will only get to see the following day because we need to bring it to the shop for printing purposes.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
