if love ever had your eyes
if those arms where ever meant to hold me
or if I was just blinded by the desire
if the words you spoke
were ever about love and admiration
This is not another poem about the love
I never received from you
You left me
with many questions
those I never had the courage to ask you
The words I wish I could speak
Our call might end
Our time together,
But our tie
Like space and time
Will never end.
I'm not hard to please, all i need is loyalty, love and ears that actually listen, when speaking becomes too much of a burden, a man that will read between the lines, in order for our minds to intertwine.
Resentment turns into acceptance, the moment you realize that they never intented to hurt you.
I can see you laying on your bed,
Lost in your reveries.
I regret what I said I was so upset.
You reminded me of my bad memories.
I am sorry.
I don't want to be your enemy.
You used to be a good friend of me
I was afraid.
Sometimes you cross my mind.
I wanna get lost in your eyes.
And forget about my pride which made me go blind.
Yeah, I know, I am a hopeless romantic.
Sweet smile, dreamy words.
You pretend they are the only one in your world.
I don't wanna be your plan b.
Do you think i am scared to end up lonely ?
I rather be a loner than being your back up partner.
A week ago it was still a pain to my ego.
I am happily Jaded.
L. Lucky enough to find reciprocity.
O. Overwhelmingly thinking of you.
V. Vaingloriously hypnotized by your persona. I couldn't help to become your prisoner.
E. Exclusiveness was an idea you wanted me to believe in. But apparently it wasn't for you.
Not really a poem
Imposible naman siguro
Na sa higit isang taon natin na
Pagsasama sa iisang bubong
At pagtatabi sa iisang kama
Ay agad-agad na lang akong nalimutan
Na para bang pinagsamahan
Ay walang kahit kakarampot na halaga.
Kumustahin mo naman ako...
Kung kaya ko pa ba
Kahit na malinaw namang
Kayang-kaya mo na.
your eyes send signals forecasting a tremor.
so i pull you close and kiss the cracks
on your parting lips tonight.
broken glass and land slides,
tidal waves and ruined city,
you taste like catastrophe
waiting for a trigger.
but no, i am not complaining.
your mood may change like tectonic plates,
drift apart and rearrange
but never will i fear
your unpredictable seismic waves.
for this is a part of you
i have accepted long before
my heart began beating your name.
you may shake my world to pieces,
rive it with aftershocks and sinkholes,
but for now let's turn off the lights.
let me lull your troubled fault lines.
naaalala ko pa no'n
diretso sa tindahan ng turon
pagkatapos ng ating klase
kwentuhan hanggang matapos ang hapon
'pag madilim na ang kalye
sinasabayan ka sa pag-uwi
mapalayo man sa'king bahay
kahit galit na naman si nanay
agad kang tinatawagan
paglapat ng likod sa higaan
dinadaan pa sa assignments
marinig ko lamang ang iyong boses
gumigising ng maaga
kahit lunes ay ganado't handa
makita lang ang iyong mukha.
ilang taon pa ay inamin ko na.
hindi ko alam kung bakit
masakit maging kaibigan lang
kahit sa pagkakaibigan naman
nag-umpisa ang lahat...
pero ayos lang basta ikaw
maghahangad pero maghihintay
ayos lang basta para sa'yo
masasaktan pero 'di sususuko
pasasaan ba at baka
doon din tayo mapunta
pero kung talagang hindi
'di pa rin aalis sa'yong tabi
