Loosened strips, unfastened cords
Cloaked tawny petals you constantly hold
Eight Thirteen, by the park
Heading to Montevista, you showed your art

Oh crippled young wishful thinker
An acquaintance from her alter ego
You taste like sea and you glint like gold
You cried an ocean yet never left her floored

Come closer fake schuyler, come closer...
Stains from my cheek, the briny tang of Montevista
Smears from my agony, your sweet smell like tequila
Who killed this fondness? Who ruined this mania?
Answer me, answer me, Montevista!

I'm happy and contented from the start
And then she broke my heart
I cried many times
Met new friends and did mountain climbs
Filled myself with alcohol
Lose myself out of control
But life doesn't end here
I even became a frustrated William Shakespeare
In times like these
Family will always be your fresh breeze
And then add your friends
They are all godsends
Thank you for this experience
I know this is part of my existence
Thank you God for all the blessings
Thank you family and friends for all the learnings

Ilang buwan na ang lumipas
Nasilayan kong muli ang iyong kagandahan
Ngiti **** yumayakap sa aking puso
Mata nating nagtagpo sa gitna ng karamihan

Sa ilang segundo ng ating pagtitinginan
May kaunting kurot sa aking pisngi
Naramdaman kong mahal pa rin kita
At hinding hindi ko ito itatanggi

Makasalubong man kitang muli
Wala na ang nadaramang sakit
Makita ko man na kasama mo siya
Mata ko'y hindi na ipipikit

Maraming salamat
Sa mala alamat
Na kwento ng ating pagmamahalan
Na dati ay walang hangganan
Nauwi sa hiwalayan
Nauwi sa mahabang gabi ng iyakan
Nasaktan tayo pareho
Pero hindi ako sumuko
Tatlong buwan nag-isip
Ngunit ika'y nainip
Hindi ko na nasagip
Natangay na ng hangin na malakas ang ihip

Maraming salamat
Sa lahat lahat
Sa kahinaan at kalakasan ko
Tinulungan mo akong magbuhat
Tinuruan mo akong tumayo
Pinangako sayo ang hindi paglayo
Binago ako ng ating pagmamahalan
Mga pangarap nati'y nagkakaroon ng katuparan
Ngunit pagmamahalan natin nagkaroon ng katapusan
Hindi na din natin nagawan ng paraan
Na ayusin at bigyan ng pagkakataon
Nagkulang na ata sa oras at panahon

Ikakahon ko na ang lahat ng ating alaala
Itatago sa isang parte ng puso ko kung saan wala ka na
I have known that the sun can hear thunder
and how its brightness
can be unfathomable,
like my dreams.
Since the beginning of my pulse
I have been honored
with good days
that left me grateful
inside of the sweetness
never stifling.........
within all it means.

When midnight kisses the glass
that morning has already
Like a thirsty spider
crying out........
for the rain.
All of my senses are
swept through
knowing, my words don't fall
on deaf ears......
or stand there,
all wasted.

No, you cannot know how I'm feeling
but that doesn't mean
our world's stopped spinning.
The sun.......
can still hear thunder
in all the ways you love me.
You lift me up
in the midst of a storm.
All my senses are swept through
my words stand in stillness
a storm's ending......
is love's beginning.

An Epithaliamium

So Man, grown vigorous now,
Holds himself ripe to breed,
Daily devises how
To ******* his seed
And boldly fertilize
The black womb of the unconsenting skies.

Some now alive expect
(I am told) to see the large,
Steel member grow *****,
Turgid with the fierce charge
Of our whole planet's skill,
Courage, wealth, knowledge, concentrated will,

Straining with lust to stamp
Our likeness on the abyss-
Bombs, gallows, Belsen camp,
Pox, polio, Thais' kiss
Or Judas, Moloch's fires
And Torquemada's (sons resemble sires).

Shall we, when the grim shape
Roars upward, dance and sing?
Yes: if we honour ****,
If we take pride to Ring
So bountifully on space
The ***** of our long woes, our large disgrace.
I take a hot long shower
At this odd hour
The sun is long set
As i get soaking wet
The water washes away the dirt
And with it all the hurt
My muscles relax and my brain sighs
In here i sever all ties
The constant sound of water against tiles
So many long miles
