Why are hearts colored just red?
Why can’t they be pink or rainbow
Why not chocolate and why not yellow
Why are arrows pointed?
Why can’t they be squares or stars
Why not circles and why not flowers
Oddly things are remembered when they are
Like I do remember the first time I met you
In that doughnut shop in yellow shirt, faded shorts
Innocent and seemed harmless
And why do I need to change that?
Careful of the wish you’ll wish for, they can come true.
Careful on the spell you’ll cast; not just on humans.
Someday they’ll come and turn against you.
Simple it may seems, but they aren’t dreams.
Be it a wish or a spell, you should know what’s real.
Chances are, be it in broad day light or at night,
The spell you cast and the wish you made will come to you.
Who can love an old flower
Nearly withered, pale, drying.
Who can love a long passed beauty
Sagging face, dry and wrinkling.
Until a painter passed by and inspired
to blend the glutinous tempera in a canvas
All things went right and brave
Lights approved and spectators pay tribute.
Was it the painter?
Or it was just the sad reality.
My mom is falling in love
Crazy falling in love,
Love is indeed indescribable,
That’s it… it’s in most of the time irrational.
I am in this life once,
Always avoiding complications
Trying to live a perfect life
But the truth is . . .
It’s really okay to hug, kiss, slap
And at times box.
Love knows and understands
No matter how complex the line is
And how bumpy the road goes
I sometimes believe, this is what it is.
I fully trust on it, even if no one wont.
It’s new year’s day
Early in the morning
The best coffee smell ever
It’s the first day of the year
New dress, new bag, new make up
New hope, new beginning
Or is it?
My husband just got home
Drunk the whole night
Staying with friends
Home at 5am
It’s new year
New resolution, new promises
New start for a better tomorrow
Or is it? . . . I doubted
What's up with you today?
Why are you wearing that anguish again,
Why are you staying right there
Halfway leaning to that darkness
Holding tight to that mask your wearing.
Come out! Let's deal with it together,
I'll be right by your side
Let's pray together and hold on tight
Let go of them, they're just a bother
I'll be your friend,
A father and your mother
I can be your sister or even brother
Because, I really do not care
All I want is to help you out there.
I normally call you as my BEST FRIEND,
All this time we are PARTNERS,
To other people's eyes we are HUSBAND & WIFE.
But who are we really?
Could we just simply be couple and be tied by contract?
Or stay bestfriends like the usual.
I bet whatever other people say we are
Or the law that bind us,
We who cares for each other are responsible . . .
To listen, even to the worthless concerns
To understand, even to the worst circumstances
To be truthful, even to the most confidential
To be forgiving, even to the gravest sins
And lastly to be a PARTNER.
JUST HOPING YOU KNOW THAT.
Why are you here?
Why are you knocking at my door?
Do you think, I needed you to read my mind
Or you've just find it amusing to see me crying
Stop pitying me, I know I'm nothing
Although, I want you to stay
and love me as I am.
It's 12:20 in the morning
Couldn't fall asleep waiting for you
Just in front of my computer
My hands are arranging words
Hard enough with my sober head
In that dark stuffy humid study room.
Forget it . . .
Or should I say
You've forgotten it . . .
That I'm still here
Couldn't catch a wink . . .
Until your down home.
Please come home.
Sometime in our life we depended everything from the people that surrounds us:
It is always good to hold hands and cuddle to our mother for affections,
Or settle to father’s advice and learn from all his teachings,
Be with friends who appreciates us and tell us we are gorgeous.
But the things in life isn’t always there to please you
Sometimes you need to hold your own hands and pray for redemption,
Or simply listen to yourself and be guided by your own convictions,
Be friend to yourself and perceive your inner strength and grace.
I’m a saddened woman
it’s apparent even in my shadows
heavily bearing the burdens and grief
as days turn into nights
and as the sun stare gets colder
showing no respect of the lady
lost because of love
To my loving husband,
No doubt, I wasn’t the perfect wife you wanted
I wasn’t even that strong as you always wish I am
I used to say I was useless to be your better half
Worse thing is I couldn’t even lend an ear to listen to your petitions
And be just a woman whom you can share with your ambitions
Yet, I was hopeful I didn’t know that even to that weaknesses manifested in me
You still love me unconditionally.
And that made me so grateful as a wife.
I never regretted anything to be your mate.
I know it’s not father’s day yet
And it’s not your birthday as well
But I’m here, glad to tell you
For being my father and my friend
I’m grateful that you’re always there
Every time I needed you
And care for me
even for the times that I care less
Hold my hand
when I felt scared
Assured me that
no matter what
you’ll never leave
Thank you Father
I owe you a lot
And even if I can’t pay them all back
I promise to hold your hand
When you needed it back
appetizing, sweet, divine
and the creamiest coffee
yes, you are an awakening
you dare provoke me
to rouse from my senses
full of surprises
you let me crave for you
as I sip every little bit
of your caresses of me from deep with in
simply fired me up like a blaze
lighted my soul
you slowly burn me
as I turn to pyre
I’m now crazy and addicted
as I cannot live a day
without a cup of you
Thunders are clashing
lightnings are flashing
in the corner of my eyes
I saw you
underneath that pissing mood
you’re darker than ivory
hotter than the melting lava
as your rising temperature surge
why can’t you just set still
and get conciliated defenselessly
by your anger
Why am I here?
Reading your thoughts
Watching you dancing
While you’re gliding here and there
Why I suddenly get interested?
With your tempting lips
And swaying hips
Wobbling all around me
Rocking me to death
Yes, of all the people I met
It’s you I wish to stay
Right here beside me
Would you be
my dance partner?
Stop creating me this way
Enough for molding me
Into the image you alone desired
I no longer wish your hand on me
Creating this hollow feeling inside
That now scares me to death
Making me ask myself
Do I still have my soul?
Cause I no longer feel it.
Yes, you are right
I don’t wanna be alone anymore
No more than that feeling
Tonight, you didn’t only made me feel isolated
I felt ignored as well—
Oh, how can I feel the other way around
When you’re just there by my side,
Turning your back on me
Snoring like a huge dummy
Intensifying this feeling of loneliness
I swear I don’t want to be alone anymore
It’s not the rainbow
I saw yesterday with you.
I know it takes forever to say
and to go against this funny little feeling
I don’t care if the world is against us
and more so if everyone hates us
it’s this feeling I hate the most
the never ending abnegation within me
“I passionately love you”
how much more will you tease me?
how much more will you make this heart suffer?
did you already forget?
I can’t bare seeing you like that
so much for the care
so much for the sympathy
so much for seducing me
I’m telling you this
one more move or else
I’ll give in to you.
