bawat pag silip ng araw
di pa rin malunasan aking panglaw
pagka’t naglaho na ang pumukaw
ang kaisa-isang nais matanaw
ang aking hiling sa bulalakaw
ang aking irog, tanging ilaw
sadyang hindi ka na abot-tanaw
at sa panaginip nalang dadalaw
ang kaluluwa ng kinalimutang ikaw

don’t be fooled
the sparkles you see
hiding behind my eyes
are all illuminated
by the flames
this mouth
fails to liberate
i said
don’t be fooled
the beauty of my words
is all a front
letters on a scented paper
and fancy fonts
but why do you think
its ink are all
in black

she's a whole ******* blur at the moment
she'll adjust her focus slowly
and maybe you'll see her again

then when that awaited time comes
what your hurricane had done
will be lost in the lights
of her portrait and beautiful smiles

self-love and courage building up
against the abundant scars
just you wait for her

mary has gone with the wind,
lost herself finding the hope hiding within
jumped impulsively to the world so unknown
filled with lights and lies, smokes and flaws
but the road's one way, there's nowhere to go
she is as naïve as a young soul,
silently screams while the winds control her

curled on the bed as though a shrimp was elizabeth
countless questions started flooding her mind again
"hello darkness, what's on the other side of you?"
never will she know the answer, she supposed
colors were splashed all over the world but darkness conquered hers.
she, then, thought maybe it was better to just have her eyes closed.

with a pounding heart i walked closer towards the end of the cliff,
my eyes were closed and my senses were all ears; then i heard
"perfect was you, the body and face screaming of Aphrodite,
perfect was you, adored by the hearts of many,
perfect was you, the root sometimes of most's jealousy and insecurities
perfect was you, dearest Olivia…"
but never did i want to be perfect, i've always wanted to be loved.

choking because of the problems wrapped around our necks,
we hold on to battle the biggest challenges that come our way
until the world becomes so exhausting to live in
until the purpose is no longer the reason to live
may you be Mary, Elizabeth, Olivia, or yourself
as long as you can feel me easing your pain
do not give up just yet
; please.
this was written during lit class. anyway, remember that you're never alone. :)

On a warm Tuesday,
the scorching April fire ball helped me paint
4 feet 11 sized short canvass
Sunburnt tan color was poured all over me
The porcelain white skin of mine
Was gone and couldn't be described as faint
A salmon coloured glow
Stained my pale cheeks with its own hue
While a real smoked salmon
Came back to its home inside of me down there
Pair of black buttons on the upper part
Of the canvass
Mirrored the icy calming blues
As I looked at them adoringly -
and unexpectedly got splashed at
Discovering the hidden wonders under
I met a weird creature
A star, but is orange
Living in the blue crystals
Instead of spending its whole life
Floating in a jetblack background
Current was strong!
My foot was numb!
I couldn't swim up!
So I held onto the long muted yellow rope
And went back with heavy breathings
Sat on a wooden brown furniture
Stared at the big gray and greens
Parading on my sight
Passing by real fast
While I am on a humble white boat -
Everything happened,
While I am on a humble white boat
Which introduced me to his friends of different colors
I lifted the corner of the red line upward
Revealing the not-so-pearly whites
And looked at my artwork
Which I shall call
had to repost

panandaliang tamis kapalit ay walang hanggang hinagpis
masiglang pag bungisngis na napalitan nang matinding pag tangis.
mula sa lantarang pagnanais napunta sa pasikretong pagtitiis
walang pasabi, ika'y umalis
biglaan kang nanakit ng labis
bumalik ka na

the words i wanted to speak were stuck somewhere in the galaxy in my head.
the voice to tell you hid in the black hole of my heart in dread.
the waterfalls trying to descend from my eyes stay unshed.
the stinging pain lingering in my heart for so long remains bottled.
the undying love i could not control continues to burn in red.
while you fall hard into the deep water instead.
now the undying love i could not control shreds me to threads.
if i had known it wasn't scorching fire you needed,
but the soothing liquid you've wanted,
i would not have refrained the falls from falling,
i would not have loved you hard but calm,
i would have let the blood of my pen drown you with the words
i wanted to say
but now they're
all dead stars
in the galaxies
in my head.
after almost 60 days, finally posted another.
would like to hear your thoughts. :)
