I never would have thought that you,
of all people,
would pull a vanishing act on me.

I guess I should have realized
after 12 years of second, third, fourth chances
that you're no different than the rest.

out where day is always night and all is under,
lost in the forever forests of lives long shed,
hides an old memory of chthonic light, shadowed…
my back scars on the rocks i try to rest upon;
eyes locked on an invisible sky, wandering,
finding new dreams of old in the rough shapes of clouds.
a whisper sings from afar, again and again,
and again i seek to mute it - liar, begone! -
without reason but the fabled stories i’m not.
and yet the search is stronger, it goes on. three words
pour from the lips of adventurer and treasure,
meant to bring them together, one day: i am here.
took me almost two months to get this out of me

Reunite, in an embrace,
Sleek black and white keys and fingertips of lace,

Dance away!
Until the frothy winds weep,
Until my curious eyes wane,

Weave those strings of emotion
into a muslin-mist melody.

Intoxicate this mellow dream
with coffee rhythm and cinnamon notes

Let your song inspire me again
as it hushes to pianissimo
and dissolves into the summer shadows.

"encore!"
Sometimes, music is all that makes sense.

oh, darling, don't you know?
there is no cure for a broken heart.
Habang ang iba'y tulog tayo namay gising.
Mata koy dilat at nanalangin sana'y ika'y maging akin
Bago ipikit ang aking mga mata.
Nais ko ilathala sa aking panaginip na gusto kita

May mga salitang di kayang bitawan,
Sa mga labi ito'y mahirap mailarawan,
Kaba ng dibdib ang nangingibaw,
Sa sarili na puno ng alinlangan.

Sa bawat saknong ng tula,
Damdamin ay nailathala,
Mga salitang hirap bigkasin,
Sa taludtod ng tula nalang maihain.

Sa pagsapit ng hating gabi,
Kung di ito kayang masabi,
Kahit sa hangin nalang maibulong,
Ang mga salita ng damdaming nakakulong.

Childhood is a time you always want to remember
But I never want to
It is like a nightmare for me
As I got shattered,
When I lost the leader of my family, my father
I was left alone with my mother,
Bank loans and many other responsibilities
I still fear that day,
I fear thinking how horrible it was for me.
You can't imagine what I've gone through
Yes, you can never imagine
The situation I came out from,
I was left all alone on my own
Neither had a shoulder to cry or
Someone to rely on
People were there for us
But I trusted none.
My biggest fear was to face another day on my own
Knowing that I was all alone
I tried to divert my mind
But that could only help until
I realized my biggest nightmare,
That was my reality.
I overcame every bad phase and
Here I am standing tall on my own.
When you are there on your own from a very young age you learn how to be on your own.
My advise for everyone out there is that no matter what happens "NEVER EVER GIVE UP" because "YOUR WILL TO NEVER GIVE UP PAYS OFF HUGELY".

my class ends at 11:30 and ill
be home by 12.
so little in this world can give me
comfort like a closed door and a
grey sky through a
curtain.

I'll never talk about what it's not, but I'll tell you what it is

It's the jaw harps sound, clear as spring water in open mouths

It's an echo clear in a budding clearing

And clear enjoyment in the crinkling eyes of a crying wish

And as for my old mentor, his name was Kitten Lips

Because he purrrrrred when he performed on it
Tuesday 12 - Closed it out with a true story. Had some fun for an hour in change. GG.

Source, a heartthrob life
Be thought, and alone no more
In my being caught
Tuesday 12 - This one reads like a prior dream. Lol.

UNI
College is
A peaceful mind
Because it's years
And years
Of nonthinking
Thought

Free of judgement
And greatly
At a price
Often bought
Tuesday 12 - Back when you're just starting out. You know nothing... And that is great.
