Jia-Li Yang (Cassa Bassa)

Wisdom

Older and wiser
Acting more silly

Unintended Strategy

She’s always his unrequited. 
That’s how she won him over.

Love

I love you most
When you say very little
And do what’s needed      
To keep me smiling

Cracked

I drink too much
Because I cannot bear
To see my sober self
In the mirror
It reminds me of
Every bit of 
what’s wrong with me
The day you left
