When I'm down the sun never
seeks the sky.
Just a dullness
that hovers beyond the grasp
of my need to rise above
I only needed that ray to hit upon my
I need to not hurt like
before, I cant keep this smile aloft..
It's falling like a shooting star,
bruised when it hit the ground
never again found.
I'm dwindling like the stars caught
between the dawn and nightfall.
a light flickering before its
radiance is just an echo like me..
You'll find me, that star that fell,
but never wished upon.
Just cold never seen,
here but missed,
as I fell from a moment of height
to a place where I'm low and alone.
One so steady
as to guide and navigate
to be the source of sighs of relief
at the nightfall
and the day it
puts to sleep,
a signal to the wild
that it’s time is now,
and a glint of opportunity
to the many
who lay alone
to wish their loneliness away.
Yet, all the time,
a planet in her own right,
spinning and orbiting
in her own habit,
how we gaze upon her
with a will
to make her our own.
Pabulusok na ang ginintuang hari
sa dulong kanluran.
rumuronda na ang mga paniki,
nakadapo na ang mga ibon.
tumitili ang mga kuliglig
kasabay ng walang patid na
sagutan ng mga palaka.
ang mga butiki naman ay
humahalik na sa lupa.
malamig na hangin
ang madaramang sumisipol sa pandinig
at pumupukol ng mumunting alikabok
ang malambing nitong dampi.
maya-maya lang ay sisibol na
ang nagkikintabang kurap
ng mga mumunting kulisap
upang ito'y ilawan hanggang umaga.
Souls and bodies scattered through
The universe, and its blues
Yet, within this multiverse of colours
All I saw was you.
Gave it all I had, I
laid my heart out on the table
Hoped you'd stay, I'd hoped you'd listen
So I, can't say I don't regret it now
For there's darkness all around
Swirling in smoky tangles,
While I potato the couch with pringles.
But our passion was just a fever dream
It shined the way this illusion gleamed
There was only your bleeding soul
Was just a trick, locked every door.
There was only the ****** night
The galaxy far beyond,
And the prettiest speckled lights
The day our hearts took flight
Twas the moment we said goodbye
Under the starlit sky.
Somedays we'll laugh remembering the days we cried
Others, we'll cry remembering the days we laughed.
I'm never writing one of these again.
One by one the lights go off,
Slowly burning to black,
The kitchen stove, red with heat,
Stills to a cool whisper,
Before the daylight finishes,
It charms us one last time,
Oranges and plums twist into midnight,
The birds stop chirping,
Their chatter sways to silence as the moon takes its place,
Kids close their eyes,
Leaving another day’s mysteries unlocked,
Phones on top of couches quit buzzing,
Cars’ beaming headlights become fewer,
Life becomes a flickering candle
Just blown out
What of nightfall? What of the blanket of midnight that wraps around us all so tightly?
My darling, my love for you is as constant as the rose painted sky.
Night changes and spins around
Bitter day will follow suit
A purple frosty evening
Turning black as soot
I saw those eyes were catching me in the ball
No words fall out just watch me through it all
Perfect suit like a Ken doll
In the whisper I heard him call
He said to me "Meet me in the nightfall"
