POEMS

fighting fate

no true victory or defeat,
but i’m certain we can’t retreat
love, a war that does not invade
love, a battle we face too late.

our hearts no longer that warm seat,
our thoughts no longer the mind’s fleet;
love, a threat to our single state.
love, a battle we face too late.

i’m fighting fate and i can’t win.
i’m all spent and broken within.
we’re fighting fate but not as one.
gave it all, we still haven’t won.

with covered eyes

the light bounces off
the surface that covers
my eyes

underneath it
i watch every movement
in silence

foolish attempts
to watch your lips move
in slow motion

zoning out the noise
to catch the tune
of your voice

satisfying the sight
staring at the whole
that is you

from the outside
with covered eyes

when you go
there will be another

huwag na.

basag na ako.
hindi dahil sa alak.
dahil sa pagkabigo.
hindi dahil sa droga.
dahil sa pagibig na ito.

kelan ba mabubuo?
ang aking puso,
ang pagkatao ko
kelan ba babalik?
tulog na may hilik,
mga matamis na halik.

siguro hindi na.
kahit huwag na.

kelan pa matututo?
ang aking puso,
ang pagkatao ko?
kelan ba magigising?
sa tulog mahimbing,
sa iyong mga lambing?

run, run, run!

hey you
why are you walking
why aren’t you running
away from the pain

hey you
why are you standing
why aren’t you running
from him again

can’t you see that
he’s only waiting
can’t you see that
he’s only playing

why don’t you run
why don’t you run, run, run
why can’t you just
run away…

hey you
why are you staying
why aren’t you leaving
him on his own

hey you
why are you smiling
why aren’t you crying
can’t you just go?

Sometimes, I wonder where the writer in me goes when I don’t write. Well, even our good sides take short vacations.
