longing
JK Cabresos Aug 2020
i
could have
written hundred
of poems

i
could have
seen thousand
of sceneries

i
could have
cried million
of tears

but

it
would never
suffice
my deep feeling
of longing
for your embrace

it
would never
ease the pain
of missing your
presence

love is an unending poetry
JK Cabresos Jun 2020
love is sweet,
love can ****

love is poisonous,
love can heal

love is

astounding

love can
make you
in sane

love musings
JK Cabresos May 2020
midnight skies,
insatiable emotions

found ourselves
in tangled arms

musings on
lust and love;

love is not a need
but a feeling

lust makes our love
more compelling

promise me no promises
JK Cabresos Apr 2020
i believe in promises,
it's the wind i would grasp
tightly in my hand,
the depth of an ocean
i would drown to,

i believe in promises,
it's a dream i would wallow
in visions of my sleep,
a morning at my window
i would wake up to,

tomorrow
may not be certain,
still, i believe in it
even if it's made
to be broken
Some may not believe in promises, but it's my driving force for tomorrow's uncertainty.

you're hiding

Lost in the midst of oblivion,
writings on the walls

Of Becoming A Poet

in the midst of solitude

of infinite miseries

words engraved

are fragments of hidden
memoir of the past.

Cherish the Scar
JK Cabresos Mar 2020
Cherish the scar
that once puzzled
you to believe.

Cherish the scar
that once vexed
you to forgive.

Cherish the scar
that once broke
your heart.

Cherish the scar
that once ripped
you apart.

Cherish the scar
that once was
your haven.

Cherish the scar
for you to take
the risk again.

Sweet Mistake
JK Cabresos Mar 2020
I kissed you.

I ran my fingers
through your lips,
and smelled
the frangrance
of your hair.

I kissed you again.

"This is all we
could ever be",
I whispered.
I heard silence,
you slowly laid
your head
on my chest,
and tears fell
from your eyes.

I kissed you even more.

More Than A Lover
JK Cabresos Feb 2020
You are more than a lover to me,
you are my best friend
you are t­he coffee in my morning,
you are the blanket in my cold nights
yo­u are my peace of mind,
you are in every heartbeat
you are the re­medy I believe,
you are one of a kind,
I could never find 
someon­e like you in a lifetime,
this love,
this beautiful feeling,
you ­are the only one 
who can define.

If I Die
JK Cabresos Mar 2019
If I die, tonight
don't cry,
pick the petals off a rose
and throw the thorns
at my doorstep
with your lies,
how could you tell them
I was important
to you,
when you were not there
when I needed
you the most?

If I die, tomorrow
don't follow,
this is my way
of giving up to the world
that has already
given up to me,
how could you show
those tears,
when you were not there
when I tried to resist
the fears?

If I die, yesterday
don't believe,
I have already died
a thousand times
before you knew
this cold flesh
is in my grave,
how could you find
solace in memories,
when you left me
in the church today?

Writer's Block
JK Cabresos Mar 2019
Words are trapped
in the unfathomable
depth of this mind.

Solitude then came
along this pale
moonlit night.

Ink of this pen
could no longer
unfold its mysteries.

Hope to find peace
on the funeral
of my poetry.

Pi
The rain caught us
in the middle
of flickering streetlights
in this town,
a dark cold
night walk with you,
we stopped
in a small mart
to grabbed a *****
and talked about
the future,
you smiled
at me,
you rubbed
your warm hands
against my face,
and tears started
to fall.

Who would have thought
we will meet in the horizon

Who would have thought

in the midst of the woods
of lonely eyes?

Who would have thought
our dream of once happiness
will be of walking together
holding hands?

Who would have thought
of this love so beautiful
could drown the pain
into the deepest ocean?

The remnants of memories

like the moon waning the tides,

longing to walk by the shore,

to listen the melancholic sound
of the waves
until the dawning light
appears before your eyes,
to find an escape
for you are caught in the middle
of the ocean and the sky.

the beautiful scenery
of your body,
perfectly naked,
turned me to start
kissing and sniffing
your neck.
