[LITERARY] Second Half

by Karina Melencio

You are the fall without

The water;

The push of the wave

Without meeting

The shoreline;

The silence

Without the quiet rustle of

Limbs holding onto each other

To proceed it;

You are the wish of being together

Without its fulfillment;

I am both the wait

And impatience that comes

With this wishing.

I am Karina Melencio and I consider myself to be an anxious, nervous yet driven writer that has written for as long as I can remember.

Being a news editor in my Junior High School journalism club and presently a literary editor in Tigercubs, I was able to learn closely from talented teachers and students alike. In my spare time, I like to cook and watch anime!
