As he surrendered,

Let's call it a "DAY"
Is an ordinary
24-hr ticking clock.

The only thing
That made it different
Was when I started
To look forward
Knowing you.

But after knowing you,

Is an ordinary
24-hr ticking clock.

Metaphorical World Of Pizza
The world is like a pizza.
Circle w/ a crust.
Pepperoni rocks, tomato water
Leaves of pepper greens
Some pineapple trees
And land of cheese!
The core of pizza saver,
Mountains of Olives!

The rain of saliva's
Coming in!
And some tornado stomach
Striking free!

Please deliver the world to me!
The brochures, it's making me hungry!
When other's already got
A slice of it.
While some,
Are now tired of it.

For all the things

Why do "goodbyes"

Who's the MAZE VICTIM?
It's a   m  a  z  e   we're solving.
I've always seen the way out.
But let's just say, I ignored it
To play this game with you,
To spend time knowing (you),
How strategic you can be.
But I end up losing time. . .
Time, I should have spent
O u t s i d e  this crazy box.
And somehow, I've been imagining
Seeing the ends of your eyes
Always looking at me.
Hmm, might be wrong with that evil smirk!
This is a   l e t t e r   I'm shooting to the sky
In jet planes, clouds as ink.
So. . Look up! :

I said:

          Love is without  e g o  . .
   but it comes with  s e l f   r e s p e c t.

And so, I said it.  
Just to defend my ego. .
We are but the same,
So do not weep
Even a single tear,
Or a single sigh
We'll just call it  " q u i t s "

This is not love, indeed.

My Grandma is Spide-y!
She is spide-y

Never standing.

With Me
Every tick,
my clock drips,
my eyes leak,
with heavy lids.

Yes, I was sick. . .
and they left me,
when I was weak.

The friends I thought,
were for real,
only spend time for chills.

I'm not cool,
but never a fool.
I just want this life's
better piece.

To give me someone
who never kills,
a heart so frail, as me.

A man,
a lifetime friend.
My missing puzzle piece.
That everlasting kiss!

Who could promise:
"  *In sickness and in health with me

But in all of these,
I know, 
God is with me.

" Always giving . . .    
. . . always watching, "

Now, is it all just a lie?

Without even coming near,

No one could ever touch

No one could ever embrace
the whispers of the  w i n d ,
& the depth of the s e a s.

But they could . . .

The sun even from a faraway,
sheds rays of light,
The wind that tingles our skin
in a cold night,
And water that drowns us,
from head to toe,
soak us. .

Just how unfair
That there would always be things
That can  t o u c h  us,
K i l l   us. .
But we can't.

I lose that side of me
Because life has its way,
Of making us forget,
How special was

And later
We shall regret
The mess we've made
And that's when
We'll look back.

.A mere flashback.
And that's the most painful thing.

I'm truly not capable
Of falling in love

Because if I am
You should clearly know by now
After I said so

But look, I left you
Coz one day I just woke up
Saying, "whatever".

Social Hierar-Kill

The cloud's been crying,
          Like some tuna fish dying.
Field's been flooded,
          Like a superstar in market.
Ground's been shaking,
          Like someone icy chilling.
Wind's blowing,
          Like a laborer snorring!

They are dying in hunger and poverty,
And you were like,

       *" It's the ******* social hierarchy! "

And everyone's just looking
Like it's ******* nothing!?

      "Come to me nature!

I was standing,
Feet landed on different planets.
But slowly, they've been drifting.

Apart, they are going.

And so I was left,
With one decision to make.

Is it to jump?
Or to choose what to take?

My eyes sent asteroids falling
Like gravity possessed space
Then, I decided to jump
But your jupiter rings

Saved me.

Eventhough you know,
In your planet,
I cant survive freely.

You saved me!

But you took me back
To planet Earth.

*And it hurts me.

Sometimes, Freedom is
Our words, this piece. Unknown to
Your dear beloved.

To kindle thy hearts
Of carbon souls, who loves but
Chose to be hidden.

Cause slicing thy hearts
We know, the angst of losing
What little we have.

Hoping, that feelings
Befall, we remain numb as
We pen our hearts out.

One day I was seating,
Looking at the sky.
Oh, how it felt like
I got that realization,
That my life could end
In an   i n s t a n t   today.

And  H E R E   I    A M,
With my unfinished businesses.
Wondering if life always end
In the middle of thinking:

" What could've been my life, if I chose this. . . "

Pedestrian: Im still ALIVE
I cried,
When I realized
This could be love,

Too unfounded.

Now, I believe
That love is
Like crossing a street
With confidence,
A face steadfast.


There's a sudden feeling
Of almost getting hit
By a speeding car.
And it happens
Every second.

From there,

You felt like,
Never crossing
The line again.

But still,

To reach the other side,
You remain there
Hoping you can move on.

And as,

Courage strike
You take a step
Secretly hoping
To get hit head on.
And now, FOR SURE.


No matter how much
Time you take,
All you see
Is a car
Waiting before
Pedestrian lane.

"Go out, please. Go get me. ."


beep! *beep! *beep!

You run ahead
Looking at that car
Who just speed ahead.

You overthink,
If he wants you safe
Just playing safe.
So you cross
Again and again
Because I see no reason

And it has become my poison.
             .        .        .­       .  Lost in motion

I killed myself by treason

Maybe it's not yet my season.
*Someday, i'll make a reverse rendition.

Special Exclusion
I told myself:

" I need to make this man a poem. "

So here I am, reminiscing an ordinary day. . .

I was one of those,
Who do not care:
University political parties, campaigns
And all the blabbers they make
Scripted promises turned
Public speaking competitions,
And yeah, i t   i s   h e l l !
But that day I heard a voice so deep,
E  c  h  o  i  n g   in space,
pounding through my brain. .
One of the clearest voices
I've ever heard, there he is
Standing for campaign.
And my wrong, he's full of vision
and selfless cause, giving my belief
a  s p e c  i al   e x cl u si o n.

A year has passed, with ordinary days
Lurking by. .

He transferred in our block,
From there I thought:

" I would want to know
              this person more. ."

There was no love, I'm sure.
But there is a jolt of mystery
On his face I'd die to solve.
I exerted  n o   e f f o r t,
but my curiosity is pulling strings,
I got to know him better.

One of the most well-rounded person
I've ever known,
Oozing with confidence
In everything he do.
His  ph il o so p h i e s
deserves a trophy too!
He is someone that
I would want to be
If I were a man, that I am sure!

We competed in a class debate, I won.
And there I thought,
That my achievement is worth
a  no b e l   p r i c e
worth the sought.

There is no love, but there is
f or e v e r    ad m i ra t i on.
To the voice which is not
just a perfect tone,
But has the best echo that deserves
a   w o r l d   c a l l .

There is consistency,
There is substance. .
The only thing I hope for is
May his beliefs not eat him
Coz too much meaning,
Brings sadness on his face.
A face which looks like
He discovered a problem
O u t   o f    w a y s,
Like cancer on its very last stage.
His wits are too powerful,
I see it killing his happiness.

So I wish him the same things I wish for myself:

To think less of what others deem
as   n o n s e n s e .
This is an unpolished poem, Ill get back to this when I have more time.

This is dedicated to a not so close friend.
Who I'm speechless for. This poem is not in anyway romantic, .

He actually won the stud council elections in our college as the VP.

You are in love when
You write conversation scripts
In your phone's memo.

But then, that moment
N e v e r    h a p p e n e d .
A single antipcipated question
Was never asked. .

And it turns out
That nothing works
According to your plans.

You ended up,
Embarassing yourself.
Then you write again
But now, a defensive script.

And it turns out,
You are just making a big deal
Out of things.

You are in love,
When nothing works according to your plans. .
Coz its always your plan
To show the best side of you
And you realized there is
N  o  n  e .

So you fall into depression.
Thinking you are never enough

Love is not suppose to make you feel
