i can't kill
i can't keep
i can't say
it keeps me sane
and just like that, she became invisible
like how humans are oblivious to the
beauty of flowers
yet we are so crazy over roses
her eyes are alluring like the daisies
white petals emblems her
yet they bat an eye on her
and just like that, she wilted clumsily
as she was only a daisy in the field
Total stranger you are to me yet our worlds are starting to be one. Thought of you makes me giggle from bright morning to gloomy midnight.
And the stars. Twinkling gracefully as they form newly discovered constellation in my own eyes. Your face. Your smile.
Would I walk with you in the shoreline under the moonlight? Yes, in my best dress, i would. Until we're grey and old.
Your secret smile, the way you intentionally cough before you start talking. I have loved those.
And the way you make me feel everytime i hear your name. It's different.
You are different, my love.
I was looking straight to the door when you suddenly entered and then stared at me.
I noticed how surprised you were, I can see it in your eyes.
You smiled at me, I noticed how your lips moved.
For a minute or two, my heart beats so fast but the people around us were moving so slow.
I was about to smile back but by the aroma of the coffee inside the shop, I suddenly woke up and then you disappeared.
Maybe one day, we will meet at the coffee shop again somewhere and the timing will be right.
Staring at the sea,
saw you riding with the waves
Washed away my tears
Walking near the cliff,
saw you leaping with the bouys
Dived away my fears
Sitting on the street,
saw you tricking with the flips
Kicked away my pains
Waiting for the day,
thaw adventure thoughts of you
I tried to move away
Wishing that some day,
flaws of ours will be clear
So we can start wandering
(a poem written by Hafsa Tadile Sucatan)
We met in unknowing place,
Doesn't know each other's face.
It was you who smiled at me,
Wondering, who's this man infront of me?
The way you look into my eyes,
Feels like we met again in twice.
Though, we don't exchange names yet
Why this heart strikes as fleetest of the beat?
I squelch for awhile,
Gazing at you in a mile
I now remember you,
My last night's dream was you
The mind's eye was flying
Walk into you, I am hoping
A chance to ask you,
So, is it you? The one?

I fail to see it,
but now i see it clearly
And now all i see is gray,
Just a piece of peace,
in a little space
But i believe,
if i continue to delve
The pain turns beautifully,
and the heart rest peacefully
A heart can truly rest,
if we let it be
Slowly but surely,
pain will be free
