dear motorbike ....

I used to fancy you. One time, I was able to ride you and the feeling was just exhilarating. That was then ... now, I know for a fact that I will never ride you again unless it was a matter of life and death.

You were a key instrument in the loss of my cousin. You took away someone so precious to us that 9 years after he left us, I still feel that hollow ache in my heart. Today, its Christmas and he should be 26 years old but he will be forever 17.

I hate you motorbike. I will never forgive you. I can't. I will always hate you and in my heart, anyone who owns one is risking their life everytime they ride one.

You took someone I love and until that time comes that the hollowness is gone, I will never be able to look at you without wanting to burn you to the ground.

I miss you Em. You were gone too soon.

PS. He was hit by one while standing on a side street waiting for a jeepney. He wasn't riding it.

  1. Sorry for your family's loss achie Kay.. I can sympathize as my cousin's husband also suffered the same fate because of a motorbike. I don't hate motorbikes, but I don't like them either. They put the lives of their riders in grave danger for the sake of a little convenience and coolness.

  2. That's sad, but I have my Mio with me though it almost cost my brothers death (he live) I never blamed it to My Mio, my brother is irresponsible
