puti ng umaga
ningning sa mga mata
may dagat na dinadala.
dilaw na paningin
buwan nakabantay sa'tin
kalaro natin ang dilim.
bughaw ating langit
paglisan mo ang batid
sabay ang wakas at pikit.

w.c
primary colors.
i leave this piece
open for interpretations.
shia Jan 14
Basking in blinding white lights
Pencil in hand, papers on the side
Silent, worn gears shifting at five
Eyes droopy, limbs and souls tired
Yet the thirst for knowledge
keeps them very much alive
An ocean of opportunities where
They might drown but they dive
We dive, despite all the risks
The route to our goals still naïve
But for our aspirations, we fight
It is never too early to create
A future for us that’s bright
Our obstinacy a weapon
As we carry the day late at night
Notes in print and in handwriting
We quickly chew what we can bite
So by the time the war arrives
It will be certain, our triumphant vibe
But no matter the glorious recognition
No matter the numbers we are labeled by
As long as we carry on and fulfill
Our dreams, our vows, then we will rise
Rise until we ourselves become the stars
Who will soon emit blinding, white lights
can't think of a title. this was done on a whim. it's been long since i posted a positive one. here's to the people who dedicate their time for their dreams to become a reality. you will get there, i promise.

nang tayo'y sumilong at hinintay na tumigil ang ulan
sumilang ang panibagong pagbugso ng nararamdaman
mga pasimpleng sulyap na naging malalim na titigan
pagdikit ng kamay na sa huli din ay naghawakan
ang dating may inarte pa sa pagyayakapan
ngayon ang tanging hiling nalang ay ika'y mahagkan
nasanay na ang mga kamay sa kani-kanilang katawan
kung saan-saang bahagi ang nahahawakan
ano kaya ang dahilan?
tikom ang bibig, ang baso'y natabig
mga saloobin na lumalabas dati'y di naman dinig
ang mga mata na tila dagat, nag-iba ang kislap
ako nama'y mabilis na nalunod sa isang iglap
palaisipan pa rin sa akin kung pareho ba ang ating emosyon
ang tambalan nating bahagi lamang ng isang kuwentong piksyon
mother language. idk what to do, i just thought of one person and i said all these. di ko kasi sigurado kung aasa ba ako o magpapaasa.

i used to write so many things related to you. your whole name, your favorite song, the things you always say, the place where i first saw you.

i write them in different places-- on paper, on the back side of my notes, on the wall, on my wrist.

my hand moves involuntarily and i end up writing everything repeatedly. i write even in between classes. it's even frequent when i get home.

they are always written in the same manner the first time i wrote your name. with care, as if your name was the most sacred thing i'd ever encountered.

but now, i don't even do it anymore.

i stopped the rhyming about you. i forgot your middle name. the song that plays in the car seems so familiar, yet it isn't.

everytime i walk down the corridor where we always used to meet,

your voice doesn't seem to stand out anymore.

my papers are neat now. the last pages of my notes are empty. i didn't receive suspension from vandalizing the school's walls this year. my wrist is covered by my watch. i listen to my professors now. i sleep comfortably.

i lost my pen.

then one day, i encounter your name again.

this time, i write it without feeling anything.

i guess your name isn't as sacred now as it was in the past.

i guess your name would only be a foreign word i knew i encountered but i don't remember.

yeah. i forgave and now, i forgot.
this doesn't even make any sense. i guess i just feel a little nostalgic. i want to write a proper, full poem after this. so yeaps. bye!

what i only knew
was that

i was residing
after the edge
of a cliff--
and i was
already
falling
for you


and i finally
conversed the voice
of my heart
bravely
afraid
and yet
fearfully
brave

but then i saw
your eyes
the half moons
were unevident
the sparkle
was nowhere
to be found

i left
before you
and my tears
were not falling
but my heart
fell
and shattered
when i knew
the answer
to my confession

when you looked
blankly
at me

when you didn't
catch up
with me

when i had
the courage
to kiss you
and you didn't
kiss back

*and then
i knew
that
i shouldn't
have fallen
for you
school is over oh yes. but my heart is still crying.
