Month: September 2016


  I woke up in the middle of the night, asleep in haste, waiting for a sight, but when it came, I looked away, again, To stare longer, now in vain. I tried to trace – Contours of your face, Not remembering the pain – of you, A stab that came without a cue; Made sense of ….  Read More


  You, with hands that soothe, Eyes that gaze inside my soul, and words that calm me down in a squall, your presence stops time, a certain peace that cannot be found, but in your mystic spell, Soul that knows me well, only for a brief moment, minutes were like hours, hours just like years, an ….  Read More

An Ode to A Beloved Friend

  When I first held you, you squirmed and wiggled. The fur on your face covered your button-like nose. I feel lucky to own a beautiful terrier dog, even if we cannot afford you (because you were a gift). I know that in the past few days, I was so busy at work and life ….  Read More


The end of misery, putting up smiles with tears, welled up in my eyes, sacrifice, life be good, life be fair, people pleaser, no more, I’d be, not a jester of sorts, but only a few, sincere souls connect, time to live without regret, to love passionately, to breathe and dance, under the rain, without fear, ….  Read More

Jeepney ng Panaginip

  Sumakay ako sa Jeepney, Nasa kabilang upuan ay napansin kong nakaupo ka din pala at may itinatanong ka sa akin ngunit di ko marinig, May itinatanong din ako, Ngunit di ko din madinig ang aking sarili. Nakakatawa (tuwa?) di ba? Ngunit parang ganoon lang, at nagkaintindihan din. Isa palang panaginip. Hanggang dito ba naman? ….  Read More

Phantom of Dreams

This is really unusual and I cannot put it behind me. I already knew when tears came out of my eyes, and for no reason I wept. Writing the letters of your name on a canvas where I drew your face. I am not like this, and it has never occurred to me that something ….  Read More

Dead Ends

  I embrace you, defeat under the morning sunlight. My hands, forever tied, in the spell of your goodbye. I let you go, with  a promise of remembering your sight, Tomorrow I shall lose you in a blink of an eye. No regrets, a little fear, a thousand tears. Let my memory forever hold you ….  Read More


“Answering Machine”- Isang Nakakatawang Nakakainis na Pangyayari” Nag aral kami ng mga “spiel” para sagutin ang telepono ng tama. “Standardized” ika nga, para maayos ang dating sa mga customer ng kumpanya. Syempre, kuntodo practice kami at madalas kaysa minsan ay preparado sa pagsagot. Kahit sino sa kumpanya ay “required” na sumagot ng maayos, at kailangan ….  Read More


Mga sulat sa hangin. Malayo man ang tanaw, malalim man ang pinagmumulan, ako ay isang nawawalang kaluluwa sa gitna ng kasiguraduhan ng lahat ng bagay. Matapang ako at kaya ko mag isa, pero minsan ay masakit din palang magtanggal ng balat-kayo. Tao rin pala ako, nasusugatan, naiipit, umiiyak, nalulungkot at naghahanap ng sagot sa mga tanong. ….  Read More

August Sun

  Now you are gone, my August sun, Stars are dead, Daylight shun. Burned at the palm of your cold cold hand, No Februaries, can come undone. Not my moon, not my wind, but a borrowed song, kept from within. From souls, afar, My August leaf, Falling fast, without relief. Goodbye, my muse, farewell, adieu. ….  Read More
