Honestly, it has been awhile since I've shared new poems, not because I've stopped writing them (God, no) or anything but because I'd been so busy finalising my second novel, One Minute to Midnight (which is now available to buy from most POPULAR bookstores across Malaysia). With deadlines to meet, tough editing process and changes to make in the book, here and there, I've kind of feel doleful to do the updates, here on the blog.
Actually, even in the midst of things, I'm currently working on publishing a collection of poem, titled Flashbacks. So far, I've written 13 of them, including the ones that had been posted in the blog all those years ago. I've had so many finished or incomplete poems (sometimes even a line or two) stored in various folders in my laptop that I've decided to gather all of them and stick them into one book.
One of the poems that I written a while back is called Winter. I chose the straightforward title because it had been winter when I was inspired by the whole message behind it.
Hope you enjoy!

Sharp gush of mist
Trail of footsteps from yesterday’s thirst
On the snow covering path
Every drop that spills
The broken promises
The friendship bracelet formed
Oh, the thrill
The new love
Could it be another heart break?
As the last icicle fall
We stamped our two feet on the porch
To the sun travelling up, between the hills
A new beginning to the new ending
We curls on the armchair by the fire place
Holding a warm mug
Listening to the fire’s crackles
Warmth trailing down
Washing away the effect of yesterday
But anticipating the day ahead
