'I don't like you'
I keep repeating to myself
I don't like the way you smile
or the crinkles by your eyes
I don't like your Nike shoes
or the way you sing the blues
I don't like your jet black hair
or the way you just don't care
I don't like the way you walk
And how you never seem to talk
I don't like how my heart beat
Every time you're being sweet
I don't like how my eyes gaze
At your always glowing face
I don't like how my heart aches
Every time that you're away
I don't like the way I lie
Every time that you walk by
I don't like you, I say
Maybe if I keep on repeating these words
They might turn true one day
Nagsimulang pumatak ang ulan
Mula sa maitim na ulap at kalangitan
Binuksan ko ang aking payong
Upang mula sa ulan ay sumilong
Aking kapote ay isinuot
Upang damit ko'y manatiling tuyot
Naglakad lamang ako ng patuloy
Sa kabila ng buhos ng ulan na tuloy tuloy
Ang buong akala ko ay hindi ako mababasa
Dahil sa kapote at payong na aking inihanda
Ngunit 'di ko napansin na ako'y naglalakad na,
Naglalakad sa gitna ng baha
Tulad ng pagibig ko sa iyo na pilit kong itinanggi, iniwasan
Na buong akala ko'y di na ako maaapektuhan
Pero sa huli ako pa rin ay lumusong, nilamon,
Sa huli ay hindi na ako makaahon.
Kailan ba itong baha huhupa?
Kailan ba itong ulan titila?
with a gentle blow,
whispered to my ear
a silent melody
pushed my back
when i needed one
you are the wind
that come and go
was never seen
but was felt
that will never
The sky reached out
The earth awaits.
The sky cried out
The earth was touched.
The earth and sky,
They finally met
During that rainy night.
"I AM HERE! DON'T LEAVE!"
I shouted as I saw her fade away,
As her blinding light disappeared.
My roar was left hanging in the air
Among the emotions scattered around
Which is heard by the earth
but never by her.
"I AM ALONE. AND WILL ALWAYS BE."
I cried as I ran away from the dark clouds,
As I lit up a wish for someone to hold me
But that light disappeared in a second
For I'm afraid of the engulfing darkness
Afraid that no one's there for me,
That no one will call me.
I'm actually wondering
Why poems are mostly sad
Contains our loneliness,
Reveals our pained and broken hearts
Unfolds our depression and anxieties
Tells the story of how you are left behind
Says the words and feelings unspoken
Shows are darkest thoughts and emotions
Maybe poems are mostly sad
Because happiness is easy to show
But our sadness is for our heart's ink and papers alone
Maybe poems are mostly sad
Because this is the only way how to make
A messy mind and soul into a beautiful work of art
While poems are mostly sad
At least it doesn't make us feel lonely
There's that comforting side that makes us go on with life
When you're reading other people's work and you're thinking
That you exactly feel the same
That, finally, someone put your thoughts into words
That someone also goes through what you're going through
That, at least, you are not alone
So maybe sad poems aren't always totally sad poems
Maybe sad poems got that tiny bit of happiness in it
Maybe sad poems aren't just sad
Maybe sad poems are actually a silent type of a happy poem
