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.

Hi! Let's all try to add more positivity in this world and adhere to the saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep silent."

Showering you with unicorn poop so you'd always stay magical! Heart heart!
