Did she forget about me? Had she really moved on?


On that early evening, I waited by the small, shallow pond in the middle of the large field like we planned a year ago. It was dark. The clouds blacked out all of the stars above. Anxious, I began to pull at the tall blades of wild grass. Did she forget about me? Had she really moved on? In a bitter argument sometime after our promise, I was blocked out of her life. If she had wanted to reconcile with me, she would have contacted me. I was beyond wishing. Instead, I was living in a fantasy.

I waited for about an hour and gave up. Rather than heading back home, I kicked off my shoes, took off my socks, and rolled up my pants to just below my knees. I entered the pond, in an attempt to make the most of my trip there. The cool water felt nice, and I was mindful of the soft mud squeezing between my toes. I slowly proceeded to the middle of the pond, where at that point, I had no care of wetting my clothes. So I crouched down, placed my face in my hands, and let my emotions go. I felt my tears seeping out beneath my palms, making little drops that fell into the water. I stayed like this for some time.

Then, I heard something. There was a buzz. Then a second buzz. And then another and another. I raised my face out of my hands to see what was going on. There were hundreds of fireflies flying in the air, lighting up the pond like tiny flickering candles.

Further away, I heard a faint sound of grass moving in the darkness. Many of the fireflies flew towards the noise. And then I saw a silhouette of the curves of a woman near the other end of the pond. She took a step into the light of the fireflies. It was Kaylee. She was smiling at me in a fitted long-sleeve top and a short skirt. We stood there for a few moments, just looking at each other. My tears were now coming from joy. I grinned back at her.

“Sorry,” she broke the silence. “It took me longer than I thought.”

I looked at her high-heeled sandals and giggled with a shake of my head.

Kaylee followed my eyes and looked down at her feet. “Yeah, I don’t know what I was thinking.” She bent over to unstrap and take off her sandals. Then, she lifted her light skirt and waded into the pond. As she walked towards me, ripples moved across the pool of water. Upon meeting me, she wrapped her arms around my waist and placed her cheek against my chest. I embraced her body in my arms.

Strangely, the fireflies reacted by moving around us like we were star actors of some kind of show. “Uh, guys, what are you doing?” I asked them.

Kaylee lifted her head from my chest and watched them fly around us. “Let them be,” she joked.

She turned her attention back to me, and gazed into my eyes. “I missed you.”

“I missed you too,” I replied.

Still holding one another, we inched closer. I closed my eyes and felt her soft lips press against mine. My eyelids tightened firmer and quivered upon feeling a euphoric sensation that moved throughout my soul.

Life sometimes has its strange twists and turns. I was glad that we both took a chance on this one.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you enjoyed this romantic scene. To help me evoke my emotions, I listened to the songs “Sleepy Eyes” by Elohim & Whethan and “Stargazing” by Kygo ft. Justin Jesso while I was writing this, which I posted below. I found the picture shown above, of a boy and girl in a shallow pond in a field of grass at http://gde-fon.com/download/guy_girl_lake_water_night_fireflies/401727/1680×1050.

Enjoy! May peace and love be with you!

With Warmest Aloha,

Jon Riki Karamatsu

Music Video of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow


I’ve always been filled with imagination since I was a little kid.  As an adult, I still dream and work hard until it’s hard to believe I’m living things I’ve imagined.  Fiction plays a huge role in inspiring our reality.  And vice versa, writers often infuse reality into fiction. Storytelling has a way of bringing us humans closer because it draws out our emotions.  I believe as adults, we should never stop imagining, and if we have a story, don’t be afraid to share it.  You never know, you may change the world.

Here’s a nice music video of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, characters of the Game of Thrones novel and television show.  The song “If You Leave Me Now” by Foxes matches the scenes from this awesome show.  Last Sunday, in Episode 6 of Season 7, Daenerys and Jon’s romance blossomed.  I love romance.  Nothing beats that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you love someone.

I don’t watch much television or movies that much, but Games of Thrones is the exception.  I also have the books.  They’re so good, and a nice break from work.  Though, Games of Thrones inspires me to work harder.  Author and Executive Producer George R.R. Martin is so inspirational!

Death Does Not Stop, So We Will Never Stop


Death does not stop.

So we will never stop.

Do, we win.

Fail, we win.

Learn, we win.

Win, we win.

(Besides practicing business law and entrepreneurship, I am working hard to expand myself and get out of my comfort zone by being vulnerable with my creative writing, fiction writing, nonfiction writing, poems, quotes, and photography, which has given me comfort and joy, and I hope it does for you too.)

I Like It When It Rains


I like it when it rains.

Tear drops form on the tips of my hair.

One by one they fall onto my cheeks,

so no one will know which ones are mine.

How Many Stars Will I Kill Tonight?


How many stars will I kill tonight?

Thousands if I let my dark voices in with no fight.

Quel my fears with a lasso I can hold.

Yank them to the side, and focus on the things I can control.

Cherish everything that brings me joy.

Sure tomorrow can be great,

but right now is what I must appreciate.

Quietness Melts Me


Quietness melts me.

Haunting thoughts heats up my chest.

Breathe life to my dreams.
