the lone star today

seven years I have

stared at the same ceiling

with now a lone star

dusty and luster gone

 

seven years ago

I giggly jumped up and down on the bed

pasting stars, ten at least

on the ceiling

my head almost touching

 

a few years passed

each star fell

I picked them each

even the lil ones helped

tried sticking them up

pressing them up the top

on the ceiling

but none of them

wanted to go back

 

hence now the lone star

not so green, not so bright

 

I doubt  we’re not the same

least I have company.

curving lines run
up and down the street and
you follow every smooth, dainty swirl
dancing, curving your body as well

it must be the rain
who made the small curving river
eroding the brown earth gently
each grain flowing, pushing
swirling like stripes of chocolate ice cream

and you sit by its tiny bank
poking the wet, chocolatey brown sand
trying to pick up some
feeling the smooth mix
swirling on your palm

sitting by the tiny bank
beside the street
after the rain
trying to eat
the tiny chocolatey river of sand

yum! hahahah…

unya…

wala na
kay sa nanglabay nga mga adlaw
daw napapas na
ang sinulat nga tadhana

nagduwa ra diay ta?
nagpalabay sa takna,
nagpasundayag,
kung kinsay mas isog
mas sikat, mas maayo?

kausik sa akong oras
wa man lang ko nalingaw
kausik sa akong bayad
wa man lang ko natagbaw

karon
wala na koy kaulian
nabaligya na tanan
aron ipalit
sa imong pasundayag

asa ko paingon?
aw, magsugod og bag-o
nagmahay man
nasakitan,
nakalitan
apan naa pa man ko

mada rag smile ang tanan.

or have you not?

with too much somedays
you rob the future
of its own time

too much what ifs
makes life dull
and empty
of what should have been

can courage carry you through?
when the now wants you to fall
weep in the corner
curled in a ball.

hah! say no.
no matter
how wounded
how beaten,
sick and sad
this is a battlefield
fight.

have you?

to cling to fate
to hide and cower
from the truth
words cannot
but judge

yet to dream
is free
from frowns
a choice to move
and dare
to smile
alone
once more

to where my heart belongs
will never be understood.

yes, we are!

on my way
to water friendship
bringing my notes
so i could
write songs once again

what flowers can do?
or the music in my head?
what coffee can bring?
or the smiley that you sent?

i lost you once
i tried hard to forget
yet you and i
are back!

i don’t care
how stupid this post sounds
i’m just happy

oh, before i forget
thank you
for pasting that smile
on my face
once again.

just like old school
and we’ve grown

i miss your guitar though.

🙂

unread

I squeeze
the soul between the letters
of the unspoken words
and push them
apart
can you see
the hidden
meaning between
the lines
now?

be more
than a pious
babble
that you
think
you are

how odd
the words
I have written
are simpler
than the
complex
rote memorizing
you endured;
the thoughts
your fat brain
can conjure
yet
all you see is
a nag
too many
words in a page
just words.
nothing more.
