The saddest thing is I remember
How you use to look at me.
All the beautiful things you use to
Say to me to make smile.
The little believe in your self notes
In my lunch box.
I cry everytime I see you because
I am just a stranger.
My grandad was my inspiration just like
My mum he in couraged me to write poems
The sad part is he is losing his memory now

zebra
black eyed Venus
your lascivious confessions
a voice of thorns
made the priest *******
and for second he felt close to his god

i burn for you on this
iron jawed fire escape
crying on your thighs
as if landing on a dream
like a canon
that could take out the moon

feel me fickled fingers
I am potters clay
prom queen
*** goddess
luminous dusty winds
of the miraculous

everything is about death
even being born
clouds like asphalt flowers
and ancient monks

her mouth
wet like peaches and syrup
her beauty
an arrow in my throat
and the moon claims the light

i consume you a thousand times
before i die by your hand
oh so willing
tired of living in this dead house
of harsh destiny
palanquin of lust and blood

is to set your past on fire,

I don’t know what I’m looking for
but it’s most certainly more
Maybe I just wanna little effort or devotion
from the one who set this insane narrative in motion
~much love
You can have a pistol in the small of your back
And still have your heart upon your sleeve
While mine slips into my palms before it jumps to my throat
My fingers draw across it now you know exactly where I stand
One plus one is two but did you ever feel one plus one equals one
You have to face it sometime and maybe now is right and ready
Full on there-you-go maybe tonight's not the night

IF PARADISE IS HALF AS NICE

Yawns
into my morning

wearing only my
Edvard Munch’s THE SCREAM

Tee-shirt
(so that’s where it’s gone)

which is a mere
miniskirt on her

scratching a well tanned
behind.

All smeared mascara
all Cleopatra eyes

all mad crazy hair
mad as a bag of spiders

dancing
(sleepily to)

Amen Corner
on the summer radio.

Takes my toast
from my poised hand

takes a bite
crunchily...noisily

then puts it back
in exactly the same position.

Pats me
on my head

“Mmmmmm.... thanks Dad! ”

“Stolen toast is always
twice as nice! ”

Sings softly
swaying to herself

“If Paradise is half
as nice

“As the Heaven that you take me
to...”

(Ooops...slops
spills her orange juice)

“...who needs Paradise? ”

“I’d rather...have you! ”

Then suddenly excitedly
talking to boyfriend No.22

on her little pink
glitzy mobile.

Guess my little girl
has(gulp) grown up!

painting shades

One missed step, one perfect dance
One missed shot, one and only chance
Life is all...but one fleeting glance.”

It has been said "There are two sides to a coin"
Coins are of three dimensions
I live on the third side...

There is more to life than heads or tails...
...Yes or no...
...True or False...
...Is or is not
Spare the change in the world
Let it develop
The maybes and possibilities
The twists and turns
The in-betweens
Altered routes and corrected courses
Points A and B
Merely a small portion of the English alphabet
Representing simple math in a complex equation
Among multiple dialects

Why do heads win and tails lose?
What about ties?
What about forfeits and disqualifications?
What about counterfeit coins with two of either?
What happens when the coin is tossed and it lands on its side?

So many coins
So many options
So many parking meters and vending machines
Waiting to consume them

Ako'y nakatawa
Pero ito'y totoo ba?

Ako'y nakangiti
Pero sa loob nagpipighati

Ako'y nagsisikap na kayo'y
Mapatawa pero sa sarili ko
Hindi mapadama

Ako'y nalulunod na sa
Aking problema hindi
Na makahiya sa bigat
Ng aking nadarama

Ako'y lumuluha sa
Pag-asang ito'y maibsan

Ako'y wala ng makita
Dahil ang aking araw
Parang gabie na.

Was I made from a broken vessel?
Why is my life like a jigsaw puzzle?
She's becoming used to being by herself.
Slowly accepting the fact that she's happy alone.

She's losing everything else.
But in the end, she gained her peace.
I found myself by being distant to those I love the most.

so, I told her,

You do quite alright.

It struck me tonight
How impressive it is
The deftness of your tongue
Coaxing life
Out of shy, windless nights
I still remember
Sitting by your side
As your laughter floated westward
The bashful heavens made to blush
And you
Conducting an orchestra
Of sweet vivid flowers
Wet petals falling from your lips
Kissing me gently on the cheek
Painting cursive
On the sky's horizon
My words will never be so
Delicate
They are stiff; they are tired
They are made to roam abandoned alleys
And grow old in the open hands
Of a book
So speak to me
Drip your honeyed breath onto my chest
With shallow sighs
Wrap the fingers of your conversation
Around my hand
And don't let go
She is
unafraid
Uneasily
swayed

she sleeps
on silken sheets
with the wolfs
she keeps

they howl
at the moon
she hears them
and knows why

If you could read my mind,
You’d see a thousand papers
Filled with broken poetries
And deadbeat proses
Full of woeful verses
With mournful pieces
Of unfinished stories
That are yet to be written
And failed to be spoken;
If you could read my mind,
You’d hear horrible screams
And earsplitting weeps
From shattered dreams,
Kept in a nasty notepad,
Scribbled on a bed
Of bloodstained words,
Ringing in my head.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the shadows
That lurk within me;
You’d hear the bellows,
Screeching the words
“I’m tired,”
“I’m a failure,”
“I’m stupid –”
I know it sounds stupid,
It’s pathetically foolish
And seems too *******.
If you could read my mind,
You’d feel the tears
I had ever failed to cry;
You’d see the people
That make the weak weaker;
You’d see the monsters
That consume my head;
You’d hear the hollers
That failed to be freed;
You’d see the heart
That still bleeds and bleeds.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the face
I’ve failed to show back then,
The face I’ve faked back then.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see a character
I had ever failed to become
If you could read my mind,
You’d be able to read
A book you never wished
To touch and read,
But sometimes I still wish
Someone could read my mind.

My heart
Like a fine tattoo
And the ink
has stained it
black and blue
like an intricate
henna
in swirls and whorls
a complicated design
in flowers and laurels
every move with
the brush
is fine
It enters
my skin
like a vine
goes into the bloodstream
straight
to my heart
and mixes up
the beats
tears them apart
I need to heal
And let it dry
But instead
I find that
The needle
Is too sweet
(though it makes me cry)
Yet I want more
Of this art
This sleek decoration
I want it all
In glorious, colorful
vibration
Tattoo me, my love
And make me yours
For you have colored
My soul
For forevermore

Why did I stray from familiar path
There was safety in the light
Now darkness has overtook
Predators lurk in the night

Deep into the woods I’ve roamed
Amidst the rustling trees
Attuned to every chirping sound
How sinister the sudden breeze

In foolish disregard I drifted
In pursuit of wanton dreams
Do I hear a siren’s call
Or is it a victim’s screams

Oh I wish I could return
To the sanity of day
Filled with loves and likes
Not this pernicious grey

I must burst through the darkened grove
Free my mind of fear
Re-attach myself to the core of you
Enfold in your courageous sphere

But then then she takes a step forward

If there's a middle can we meet there?

Interpreted as nervousness
