clad with sorrow,
i slowly fell into oblivion
swallowed by darkness,
even the ever flowing thoughts were silenced
even the tears i failed to cry out were drowned
along with the countless swords pierced on my heart
along with the heavy rusty armor where i tried to hide
  Mar 2019 Patricia Policarpio
ting is
your           life
thro             ugh
a ne           edle
and         if
you sew
words left me behind
i screamed but nothing came out
i wrote but the paper remained blank
for the ink is dry and so is my heart
I haven't written any poem for a long time. I don't have any inspiration to write anything. It actually makes me sad. Well... Happy World Poetry Day!
summer ends, fall comes
green leaf dries, turns crimson dyed
love that never dies
(It's been 6 months since I last posted here. I miss this)
sana'y pagpikit ng aking mga mata
lahat ng ito'y matapos na, ako'y pagod na

sana'y pagdilat ng aking mga mata
ay lumipas na ang marso, at abril na

sana'y ang luhang bumubuhos ay maubos
maubusan ng dahilan para umagos

sana'y ang mga mata kong mugto
ay kalimutan na ang nakaraan- kanilang multo

sana'y di ko na makita ang sarili ko
na kinamumuhian din ako

sana'y makita ko ang sarili ko
kung sino ako at mahalin ko ito

sana'y ang mga matang ito
na minsan ng lumuha ng todo
ay makitaan ko ng luha muli
ngunit ngayo'y may kasama nang ngiti
sa aking puso, sa aking labi.

i feel so anxious. i don't know if i'll still be able to graduate on time. i feel so hopeless. :(

you see
i've got all these emotions
in my mind, my heart
anxiety, hopelessness,
sadness, loneliness,
name it
so i washed them away
drowned them with my tears
but you see
they know how to swim
but *i don't know how.

i pleaded
i wanna go home
i cried
please take me back home
but my father-
he said no
he said it's too early
i need to do my homework
i have to pass the test
he wants me to learn more
he hopes to see me finish it
finish it well

i pleaded
take me home
he said no
finish it well
do the homework ive given you on earth
pass the tests, the trials so you'll learn
learn more about me, about them, about life
it's too early, you aren't ready
you can't force or choose
your own graduation date
you can't decide when it's time to go home

i pleaded
take me home
father said no
finish it well and
wait for the ring of the bell
and i'll welcome you
here in heaven,
in my arms,
your home.
