The moon is not meek for it is a warrior
It is not cold when it is burning with rage
Between the jaws of Bakunawa, it will not yield
Within the shadows of the earth, it will not wane
A piece dedicated to Felip

Don't tell me I'm pretty
Tell me that I'm passionate
That I have drive
Tell me that I make you laugh
That I know how to make your day better
Don't tell me I seem nice
Tell me that I'm kind and compassionate
Tell me that I'm not afraid to dream and to dream big
Don't tell me I'm perfect
Tell me the you love me despite my flaws
That you want to spend the rest of your life with me
Don't tell me I'm beautiful
Tell me that you'll be faithful and forever true

i should have said yes
even when i was unsure
— or just cautious?

i should have jumped
where will I land
— am i a catch?

i should have ridden that wave
and let the sea decide my fate
— still learning how to swim

i was terrified
thought i have time
— it slipped by

i was careful
but too careful
–— it was too late

i should have said yes
yes, i should have
—  i should

Rain, oh, the rain
On a gloomy Thursday morning
It’s pouring rain

All is muted, all is grey
All your worries are at bay

See it flow on your window pane
Hear how it pelt down the drive way
Let it cradle you, keep you snug
Like that green tea in your mug

And if there's no rainbow after
Then that's okay
Maybe just kiss the rain today
Ever thought how the rain can soothe all your senses? I woke up today on a heavy downpour and I got a little bit inspired. Softly in the background, Yiruma's Kiss The Rain plays.

You're not lost, just because you didn't  trust today
I see you here, yet your thoughts are drifting away ...
You rake the leaves, with your bare hands,
You try to see, where your future stands.

You're not lost,  just because you need a break,
I see you smile, while trying to hide your heartache
You collect the dirt, under your fingernails,
As you walk barefoot and cover your trails.

I still see you, underneath the falling leaves,
I hear your voice say "thank you"  and "please"
I see your true smile, glowing in your eyes,
You're the only reason, my soul survives.
This is a repost of a dear poem of mine, it has a message that comes from the bottom of my heart, for the ones who feel lost from time to time. Also, this poem is the first one to feature in my first book of poetry, that you can find it on Amazon
You Are Not Lost: Poems of hope, love, haikus and more

Thank you for all the support I've gotten here! ❤️

I am robbed
of eloquence
Measly words
that doesn't seem
sincere enough
To prove
my affections
My thoughts
Hidden behind
closed windows
Neither light
nor spark
can shed
some clarity
Of grief
and pain
The unbidden
hurt I
have inflicted
on me
A thirst
for sympathy
and wordless
It's hard to talk about things that matter

I know
You care about me
10 more people do
Yet I can't get rid
Of this feeling
Of doom

I know
I have you
10 more people too
Yet I can't find a person
To talk to
late at night
