Right Love at the Wrong Time

Have you ever encountered an experience when it is really forbid by people? Well, here’s a new short story of Jane and Jake.

Jane and Jake met during their university years. At that time, both of them were in a relationship. They were happy and satisfied and chose to remain friends. It’s a bit awkward for them whenever they met.

Jane had feelings for him ever since. From there and then, they became friends, opened up what’s happening around them–including their personal life. There was on time her boyfriend got jealous because she seemed absent minded when they were together. The boyfriend could feel it because he’s only man. Of course, he knew about Jake but he never wanted to be friends with him. In short, there’s a gap between them. Whenever they see each other, they remained civil.

When they became working adults, Jake found a new girlfriend. On the other hand, Jane was still committed to her long-term boyfriend. Jane and Jake still kept in touch through Facebook and text. The new girlfriend of of Jake named Mary even got jealous at her and tried to make friend with her in Facebook. They chatted but not fighting about something else. They exchanged messages and met one time, but there was no hard feelings. They just wanted to knew each other. That’s how Mary loved Jake so much.

As for Jane’s personal relationship with her boyfriend named Joe, she was not sure about her future with him. He didn’t even talk about any future plans together. For her, she just believed in the line form one of the Carpenters’ song Que sera, sera.” In short, come what may! The feeling was not the same anymore when were still in their younger years. There were time she was thinking about Jake, that Jake could be a husband material and she could also be a wife material.

“What if we could be together? Would I be happier?” Those thoughts came to her mind before going to sleep which caused her a lot of sleepless nights.

Mary was away for a business trip. Joe was also busy looking for a stable job for he quit from his previous one. He always did that.That’s what Jane disliked the most in their relationship–no assurance for their future.

One day, she got a message from Jake. “Hi Jane, you’re busy, aren’t you?”

She was a bit excited and didn’t know why. They were friends for quite a long time now. So, she replied even though she had been busy for the past few days.

“Hello Jake. I’m not, what’s up?

“Can we meet? I’d like to show you something, and Iv’e got something to tell you.”

“See you after work then. Bye.”

For two weeks, they had been doing that. Meeting, having lunch together, and exchange thoughts about personal life. While they were talking and laughing, the situation suddenly became so awkward when they talked serious and sensitive topics.

“How are you these days? You look beautiful,” he said.

“What? Are you insane? I’m just like this ever since!” she was joking and couldn’t not look at in his eyes straightly.)

“Hey, I’m serious. You really look more beautiful this time. That’s what I wanted to say earlier,” he said honestly.

“Thanks. You too, you look so handsome. I like the shape of your brows and your eyes. They really look perfect on your face.” Jane didn’t know how did she get those words to say it to him. Maybe, she was only too emotionally while looking at him. They almost kissed!


She tried to changed the topic, asking him about settling down.

“When will you get married? You’re almost in your mid 30’s”, she started asking.

“Actually, we’ve been together for 6years now and I really envy seeing my friends go married and already have their own children. ….So, hopefully we will have our wedding on December 2017.”

Jane was a bit hurt hearing those words. She knew it, but she was a bit confused why is this man still going out with him, telling all these stuff. So, she replied.

“Ah I see. That’s good, you’re already 32. It’s the right time and she’s also 30. That’s a perfect timing for a perfect couple like you.”

Silence covered them….

Jane realized how close they are as FRIENDS. Though she had feelings for him, she tried not to show it because she respects their friendship so much. Because of this deep in thought talk, they didn’t know to change a different topic .

Actually, the purpose of meeting each other was to talk about work especifically business matters. Both of them were working and also had extra businesses.

 Suddenly, Jane broke the silence when they were on their way home. When they were already in his car, Jake looked at Jane closely and stared at her. It was the most awkward feeling Jane felt because they were only friends but she couldn’t help herself. Her heart pumped so badly. He kissed her and said.

“Jane, I like you”, he uttered and looked at her. He hugged her so tight.

“Stop it. Your’e getting married. This is not right”, she answered looking at the car’s window. She almost cried.

“I think we are match. Joe doesn’t deserve you.”

Jane was teary-eyed. She didn’t know how to react of what he said. All she felt was, she loved those words he said and wished she would never wake up and be in his side forever.

They had each other’s goodbye and promised to stop their communication for good. Both of them were taken and they didn’t want to take their partners for granted.

This time, Jane is trying to divert her attention to a lot of things as well as Jake. But unfortunately, there are still some times that he sends messages to her, asking her condition if she’s okay or whatever. It makes Jane glad that he still remembers him, but what makes her confused is her feelings for him.

They don’t see each other, but they communicate and share their sentiments. That is so hard for them for they may be have the right love at the wrong time!

Jane is planning to work in Vietnam and finds herself there. She’s just waiting for the right time to come. In God’s time and God’s will, she will be there. She keeps on praying for true love and the right man for her.

To all people, please learn to express your true feelings to someone before it’s too late. Be true to yourself rather than hiding the real emotions. Stop holding on. Instead fight for him/her. Don’t dwell on impossibilities if you know possible things would happen. Fate is what you make it, so learn from it. Never make an action or a final decision that might lead to regrets in the end. 

Now is the right time, so start doing what’s the best and right thing for you!

Thank you for reading Jane and Jake’s story. 🙂 


Mean Mankind!

Toxic, harmful, and poisonous…

Are not only found in food….

Can be felt, touched, and seen…

Why are are you real?…


Minutes, hours, and days…

So miserable of your deeds…

These are not only about time…

But all about life’s temperament…


Moving, quitting, and leaving…

Are best when happiness is at stake…

These may be the best options…

To be isolated to those ill-intentioned mortals…

In My Dreams…

I dreamed about you last night

I daydream about you every day

I dream to meet you every single day

I dream to be with you every minute of the day


This dream only happens in mind

This dream may within reach

This dream might come true

This dream maybe real in the long run


I hope to make this dream into reality

I hope I won’t wake up and be in your arms

I hope if I wake up, you’re by my side

I hope this dream will never be a dream anymore


I know this is only a dream

I know this will never end

I know this will be forever a dream

I know you will always be, A DREAM!

Sunny Day!

Behind every smile is sadness

Behind every sadness is a deep sorrow

But not behind every sorrow is happiness


Someone shows her smile to hide the pain

Someone shows the pain for other’s sake

But not all the pain that has shown is real


Some feelings may be imaginary

Some are really extraordinary

But most sensation are sympathetic


Everybody’s wish is to feel sunny

Everybody expects no stormy days

And everybody wants cloudy yet radiant best days!

How to Unlove You?

It is hard to pretend

When you are in pain

It is hard to fake a smile

When everything hurts even for a little while


The absence of days really suffers me

Even your face reflects everyday in my memory

The voice I used to hear from you remains

Even I tried my best to forget those feelings


How to unlove someone like you?

When all I can feel is the best in you

How can I forget and let the memories fade

When all your sweet thoughts linger and never vanished!

Now and Forever

Where is she now?

You’re looking for her but you don’t know

You try to make it up to her, but she’s already gone

This heart of mine… I will offer this just for you

So, don’t be discouraged

My love is intended for you

Now and forever

I will never hurt you

No matter what happens

We’ll be loving each other

And when the darkness comes

It can’t be changed

My love is real

Now and forever

Why is this like this?

The one you love the most

Is the one who hurt you so much

This is not right

And it won’t happen again

If you chose me, my promise won’t be broken

I am only yours

What Hurts The Most!

It hurts when I see you everyday

It hurts when I think you feel the same way

It hurts when I remember all the lies being said

It hurts when I expect words that are left unsaid


I want to love you forever

I want to hold you closer

I want to be in your arms safely

I want to cherish every moment with you so dearly


But these are only in my thoughts

Because all the thoughts I always think hurt the most

Truth hurts but needs to be accepted

So that moving on will be apprecited

If Only…

If only I could turn back the old days…

When everything was free…

If only I could turn back the time…

Where both of us were certainly free…


If only I could say I love you…

So that you would know my real feelings…

If only I could fight for you…

In order to be with you eternally…


If only I could tell the whole world…

About this tender-hearted emotions…

If only the world would not hate us…

I would proudly call at the top of everyone’s voice…

Miles Away

You may be apart

But your memories will stay like fart

You may feel lonely

But your memories stay with us closely

You may be miles away

But your smile will remain and never fade away

You may be in a different place

But your presence always stays

You may be forgotten by most folks

But we will surely remember most especially your talks

You may be miles away

But you will be in our hearts every day!


Treasured Memories

Here I am again in this empty room

Wishing that you would come home

There is no day that I forget you

For you are the only one that makes me blue


I hope one day you will remember

The very first we get together

For I always treasure those memories

As part of me despite those passed years
