Light up the sky for me;
because the world down below
is just too unbearable to see.
I wonder why shooting stars
choose to land in here;
if I were them
I would cling to the vast galaxy.
Say that I am right;
And just watch to indulge our eyes.
The world looks so harmless
when everybody shuts their eyelids
and closes their greedy minds.
I wonder what's the reason behind.
Darkness doesn't always mean sullen;
because it is what I anticipate in the morning.
But in order to see through it
I need a little glow-
So light up the sky for me
and let your burdens go.
Falling in place with the universe
I am falling in love
And I am not alone
You glow under the starlight
You're my star boy
And we dance
There's no gravity pulling on my heart
There's you pulling on my hair
I don't feel trapped at all
even with your grip around me tight.
I gasp for air
And I explode,
Explode with pleasure, passion, satisfaction
Now with eyes wide open
I see this all flash before my eyes.
I look into your eyes
There's still stars in them.
You blink and and stardust falls from your lashes.
And it makes me realize I've dreaming with eyes open.
The delicate morning light bathes the world in an ethereal glow. Soft fog blankets the ground and out of it's calm depths shoot up the trunks of naked Aspens.
Your headlights pierced my bedroom curtains
And I took off into the night.
The door had barely closed before you started driving
But I couldn't keep the smile off my face
At the butterflies in my stomach
That weren't just because of the car lurching forward.
The radio was broken
So we sat in comfortable silence
As the streetlights blended with the stars
And the night sky became the road.
We drove until I was sure we would run out of gas
And the quiet was driving me crazy
But we were in the middle of nowhere
And the look you gave me could set the world ablaze.
On the hood of the car, now,
We talked for hours about nothing
And stared at the nebulas encompassing us
Not believing there was a more important story in all the universe than our own.
At some point we fell asleep
Holding each other tight
But it was all the fight we had in us
Because morning woke us and shrouded us in it's delicate light
And when we opened our eyes, all that greeted us was darkness.
The drive home lasted a lifetime,
Lasted a moment
And when I started to go
I watched the stars drain from your eyes
Felt the moonlight flood from my veins.
And once I opened the door I knew it was over
Knew the heavens had balked at our arrogance
Knew the spell had finally broken.
I just can't believe I didn't see it coming before.
I have heard of people
and I wonder how their mouths
never filled with ash
I have cradled dying stars and
as if they came from
dipping my toe into the
waters of the universe
I am a child of flames
no cooler than the
but I cannot taste myself
without surrending to
becoming that ash
Mahal na mahal kita
kahit ilang tula na naisulat ko
o ilang tala nasa langit
di sila papantay
sa pagmamahal ko sayo
i love you so much
even with the number of poems i've written
or with the number of stars in heaven
they can never equate
to the love i have for you
Spreading like ink on the canvas of moon light,
grey clouds drifted haphazardly across the skies;
as we talked about life endlessly into the night,
all my stars had aligned in her dark brown eyes...
I see constellations within your eyes that keep me warm, and dream of being wrapped within your galaxy, inside your arms. I want to be your moon at its highest high, that calls to you like the rough waves tide. You are the reasons stars exist, a fairytale feeling I cannot resist. A pathetic poetic way to spill my heart, like an open vein, that only gushes metaphors and thoughts...and bitter sweet nothings only your ears can hear, your mouth can taste, your heart only can feel. A Demigod forced to live within fallen grace, with a sinner who could never perfect her place. I know inside, what I wish for your eyes to seek, will truly never be. That may just be the death of me.
every day a blue renegade
mercury falling out of the sky
solar system come
come feel me die
a star so burning that i cry
orange yellow black and why
do i hold on to relics what am i
the glow of the moon
me shapeshifting into the form of you
dark china drifting in fading out
what is the night without the dreams
echoing in the chambers of
a building that is baroque
time goes by i become confused
wrinkles ephemeral death is forever
life is so gray it threatens my soul
what can i say
each move is a play
