Rubbish Love (A Love Letter from a Tissue Paper to a Trash Bin)

Disclaimer: This poem may be very cheesy but I’m just having fun.


Inside my own little box I patiently wait

For that moment when I am lifted up,

Gently held by her soft little fingers

As I glide in the air with excitement

And finally touching her delicate face

Then get soaked by her warm tears.

Just knowing that I am there for her

At times when she wants to be alone

Is such bliss that I don’t really care

Even if she blows her nose on me

Or use me to anything and everything

Whenever she wants to clean something;

Even if the smell isn’t particularly nice,

I don’t care.

If that’s what it takes to make her happy

I will do anything and everything

Just to be with her.

But as all love stories that are too good to be true

We can’t be together forever.

When she’s already happy

She no longer thinks about me.

It appears that she only needs me

When she’s in agony, anxious and itchy

For me it’s not fair…

But I guess that’s what they call fate.

And I don’t like it.

I know I don’t need to tell you this

But as you’ve seen I’ve been dumped many times.

Sometimes the pain is just too much

And I am so messed up to cry.

I felt worthless and used

That I wish I were someone… or rather something else

Honey, it took me a while to realize

That despite all those rejections

Someone with a big heart

Was ready to accept me.

When you see me fall

I knew you wanted to catch me.

And every single time you catch me

You never let me go.

Even if I’m crumpled and dirty

I am still the star in your universe.

I don’t care anymore

If she uses me in anything and everything

If that’s what it takes to be with you.

I may have not liked my fate

But I would do everything and anything

Just to be in your world.

I know it’s weird but I choose

To be grateful for her.

For without her I would never be with you.

You are a wonderful blessing

And I believe you are my destiny.

Though not everyone has realized it

I already knew deep in my heart

That, in the end,

We are always meant for each other.

And I love that.

Hold On


When fear is so strong

That it paralyzes

Your dreams.

Remember this:

Don’t let fear

Knock you out!

You have the power

To face it

And beat it!

Never forget

That there is always

A reason to hope.

Hold on to it.

And never let go.

For tomorrow,

When the sun rises,

You will see

That things

Will be better than today.

Kris Ancog



We have what it takes

To be victorious.

We just need to remind ourselves

With this truth.

And believe it with all our hearts.

Persevere as if quitting

Is never an option.

Acknowledge that the journey itself

Is a great challenge.

Nevertheless, it is a challenge

That we can overcome.

True character is revealed

When circumstances do not favor us

Yet we bloom out of season.

Kris Ancog


The transparency of our thoughts

And the purity of our motivations

Bring definition of our actions.

Everyone can do good things

But only those who act

In truth and love

Are able to lift our spirits,

Move our souls,

And even touch those hearts

That have been turned into stones.

Kris Ancog

Be Seen

When shame

Tells you to hide,

Have the courage

To be out in the open

And be seen

Yes, it’s difficult

But it’s doable.

Be willing

To apologize

And never hesitate

To forgive.

Then you’ll find

That there is liberty

In authenticity,

There is joy

In selflessness,

And responding

With love

Is always

A great choice.
