Sunday Night

It was a Sunday Night
when the lights came on
when you said hi
and i drew a smile

it was a Sunday Night
when my world changed
and never again
stayed the same

it was a Sunday Night
like tonight
Only
We are in the middle of a fight

Third Poem

I didn’t know you’d last

until I write my third poem

I thought you we re feather like

Light

Unsaturated

Fleeting

Vanishing


In my silence you’d come

Rumbling

Shaking my skin and beneath

Leaving me

Slackjawed

Blue

Drenched


And when my gongs sound

Neon and orange lights dancing

And colored gumballs raining

On my usually cluttered life

You remain

Silent

Placid

Undisturbed

Careless

Unmindful


Guess you are more like the moon

Constantly changing your face

Ephemeral

Unmatched

Waxing

Then waning

Yet ever so uniquely

Illumines my night


This is one of my favorite poems from my 'vault'. I thought it would be nice to dig some pieces from there as my present situation doesnt allow me to produce some pieces. Its been a struggle writing these days.


I am finally ok. I thank God for the 'mind'. It helps us make sensible decisions. I thank God that after everything that has happened, I have only good things to remember. Well, its more of a choice to remember only the good things. What's the use of hoarding things that wont make you smile, right?


Well, here's me wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas. I'd be back for that well flavored Christmas post.And hoping I could write again with more depth. hehe. I kinda am embarassed at how shallow I have been writing.


thanks fro dropping by! Ciao!

Today, A Sunday

I saw you today
over at Uncle Ray's
I heard you tellin'
about how you wooed them
and how you are takin'
this world for some spinnin'

I must say, Baby
this made me happy
watching from where i was sittin'
with the smoothies i was sippin'
i giggled for each of your laughter
i doodled my heart on a tissue paper

so here i am writing you a poem
could have been better if i can sing you a song
well,
i just want to say baby,
i am happy
to see you happy

I saw you today
over at Uncle Ray's
I usually don't go there on Sundays

i think

the clouds are clearing
i think i am hearing
the sunshine singing
and the daisies dancing

i think i have finally
let go of you
darling

JUST?

I pray to God you would know the truth.
I pray to God he would reveal to you the truth.
because it tears me now everyday
to hear you say:

"She just walked away"

Do you know,
I now fight wounded?
I now live with only half a heart?
I now sing with a half-finished song?

Do you know,
I can no longer finish my poems?

It pains me to hear you say:

"Phew!!! She just walked away!!"

Hometown Hero

You strut the streets
like you own the town
and they come buzzing
to offer you a crown

you drop a word
only what you can afford
hiding fear
behind your sword

i heard you are the best of them
conquering kingdoms
with one arm
and a pen

i heard you led enemies to death
drawing owed breath
with a song
and a string

but your eyes
your eyes
they know not
how to lie

and my heart
my heart
has mastered
your art

that amidst this dancing
and ladies lain waiting
this chanting and swooning
of your homecoming

is a heart that longs
for the peace of the night
a heart that longs
to live right
just alright


i refuse to listen to the crowd
i sit proud
here by my window
covered in a shroud

Secret Love

Love abundant

Kept in secret

is

Like burning coal

Never flaming

Slowly turning

To gray ashes

That will eventually

Be blown by the wind

Miracle

Miracle
you are to me
A miracle
you will always be
A miracle
brought us close
A miracle
entwined our souls
A miracle
will make us see
This miracle
between you and me

A miracle

It will take a miracle

a miracle

to set us free

Wrong Song

You sang me a melody
it ended with a broken chord
or was it I
who heard it wrong?

My ears must have tuned
to the wrong song

By The Way

By the way

I forgot to say

I love the sight

Of you devouring porkchops

I love to stare at your feet

And your crooked teeth

I love your sarcastic laugh

And that crease on your face

By the way

I forgot to say

Don’t look at me the way you do

I start to melt away

Everytime you turn your back

A part of me

With you is stuck

And by the way

I regret to say

My heart sinks

every time you walk away

and when you are around

I fasten myself to the ground

scared to be displaced again

by your electrifying presence

My November

It wasn't long ago
when I was lonely
and I met a soul
in
November

It wasn't long ago
when i watched the scene change
by my window
one
unsuspecting November

It wasn't long ago
when my world was changed
rearranged
one
cold November

It wasn't long ago
when love visited me
one
beautiful November

and
left
one
month before
this November

It wasn't long ago
yes,
you must now have an idea
how it is
how it has been
and how lonely it will be
this

NOVEMBER

November Dawning

November is dawning
was it just yesterday
when you said
you'd stay?

and now
November finds its way
into my heart

this poem has no art

can you tell?

?

I know you shut me out
but how far
can you hide
from the thoughts
that stir you inside
leading you
to me
and to
the beautiful
memories.

I miss you

Thursday, October 21, 2010

tell me

how do you live
without me under your breath
how do you breathe
without me filling your air

tell me how
tell me now

because in this world
absent of you
i die every second,
every minute
that i think of you

Sunday, October 17, 2010

truth

Waking up again
questions in my head
do i start to explain?
or do i whisper in the wind?

truth will set us free
truth will
truth is
free

I ache

My dear,

I saw a tower tall and I saw it slowly fall. It was devastating.

I didnt know how we got here. I dont know the truth in all these. It is painful to see something i believe in so much, die.

I dont know what to do with my pain. Suddenly, I run out of options. I dont know what else to say.

I ache.

and i know you do too.

I am truly truly sorry. I think i told you that, remember?

sad sunday!

i miss you!

here we are we are talking but it feels like you are so far away. your mind is filled with things. tonight, i was hoping i could squeeze myself in. but maybe, your life is already too crowded for me.

or maybe, im just putting too much drama in everything. if i am, im sorry. I just miss you terribly and my heart could almost burst from not having a way to let you know that i love you. my silence is hard, but i will get by.

my heart hopes every minute that you wil stay fine. i care for you. and tonight, a silent sunday, may you find a small spot in your heart to care for me too.

i remain...yours.

Unsent.03

My dearest,

its hard to see you sad. I wish i could be the same to you as i was in the past.. vibrant...clumsy... enthusiastic... LIFE. But darling, things are diffrent now.

I watched Dear John last weekend and i cried buckets. I thought about you. I suddenly missed you so bad that i wished i could tell you how much. But i know i couldnt.

Sometimes, i fear that I would lose you. If 'letters' is the only bridge that gets me to you, what will happen now that I CANT WRITE to you? its hard. it gets harder everyday.

But there is only one thing i know: If GOD who made this universe brought us together... he will surely bring us together again...if our story doesnt end here.

i miss you. I never lack the longing to be with you... but for now, we shall be STRANDED.

i love you still. You may not have heard me say this for a long time now...but my silence has not changed that fact.. not a single bit.

I remain...yours.

Unsent.02

You probably wonder why I left just like that. Or, you might be already used to me leaving at any random moment that you don’t attempt to see the logic anymore in this.

Darling, as of the moment, i will let God explain to you why. I will keep mum and let God’s time and arrangements defend me.

Its only been two days, but I find my nights empty. I am always half asleep, as if half of my body is else where, seeking to be beside you. The distance now is made larger. It is painful.

But soon, we would be in one vast land, unseparated by water.

And sooner, I will walk your soil, and sit under your shadows. I will breathe the air you breathe and sing your song in your ears.

We will sit beside each other and look at the blue ocean… yours not mine. I will giggle at your orange soil and you will squirm at the sight of my dusty feet. Yes, they look like ginger slabs.

We wouldn’t be looking at the moon. Your face and my face are too much beauty to behold.

I will trace the vein marks on your right forearm. I have always wanted to touch them from afar.

I believe you and I will be together… soon. I just wait for God to make that arrangement.

Baby, I love you…. And I miss you now more than ever.

I remain … yours.
