Loving Somebody

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

loving the
young male singer
who won
all the awards
for his voice
his aura
his endearing appeal
that build up waves
in my heart
as my fragile
emotions
trail his beautiful songs
feed on the intensity
each of his word
digs into my soul
my entire being
swirls in excitement
- to meet him
to talk to him
a young boy
at the stadium
shouts: 'Send him my regards
Kirim Salam Ke Mawi'
my other friend
pipes in 'Do you think Mawi cares? '
in my heart;
do we really need reciprocity
in all love?
sometimes
the mere existence of
a person makes us
feel inspired
he does not need
to talk to us
does not need
to know us
cos he is god's gift to us
god throwing himself to us
and that's enough

Oh My God, John! ! ! ! Haha i cannot believe you wrote a poem about Mawi - wa-weeee! He'd be dead proud if he knows this! This is great, John. So real & funny too. P/S: I'm not that big fan of his, thou.
