Pandemonium

That time, feeling lost with the pain ...

Panic starts to cripple my mind as the realization sinks into my consciousness. A merry song is softly playing somewhere from a piped in speaker, as if laughing at my expense. My feet carry me to a sacred place, looking for sanctuary. My eyes remain tightly shut as tears fall, both my hands clasped tightly together on bended knees in a corner. My heart and my soul are breaking,...Read On

Once Upon A Time

How do you know if it is love ... a love story.

The world where I live in is my imagination. Ever since I was a teenager, I always liked being alone lying on our house's rooftop covered by the tree branches. The swaying leaves gave me shade from the harsh burning rays of the sun while talking to my favorite tree and eating my manzanitas with the birds, or sleeping after all of my house chores was done. Hiding at the rooftop,...Read On

To be accepted as who or what we are. We...Read On

Sea Of Time

As we wander ...

Slowly the sun is setting on the horizon Ending another chaotic day of life While the moon rises on the other side Luminously glowing like a soft smile The howling winds strongly blow Encouraging rolling waves to form Bubbling foam comes up to the shore Washing all traces of prints in the sands Looking forlorn without the memories The sky turns to dusk with a golden hue Joined in the...Read On

Choices

One of many...

      My sister once asked me, in one of my vulnerable, a bottle of wine, state of mind. "Who will you choose, the one you love dearly or the one who loves you so much?" "The one who loves me so much." "Why?" "Because, if he already loves me. He will love me more when the times I have learned to love him too." "Are you sure?" "Yes, why? Who will you choose?" "Me? I will choose,...Read On

Forest Mist

behind the forest mist... living harmoniously together

Lush forest greenery Vines creeping over Under the big old trees Covered by the mystery Miles and miles of history Morning mist kisses the earth Dewdrops fell on fertile land Breeze caressing the leaves Freshwater falls and running wild Fishes dances into the river valley New plants begin to sprout Fruit bearing trees blooming Wild beast roams the mountain Gentle creatures grace...Read On

Stainless Steel Rain

Underneath the rain...

Life sometimes throws you a painful joke. You must laugh out loud to hide the tears. Some days, when the pain is too much to bear, tears uncontrollably overflow from your eyes. You can't hide it anymore from the brightly shining sun outside. Silent tears roll from your eyes. You want a garbled scream to be released with the utter pain. The agony that can only hide in the shower with...Read On

The Wall

This dark, icy cold place is suffocating me to death.

My closed fists keep banging on the wall. My lungs hurt so much from losing air. It's becoming hard to breathe. I never stop pounding even as I can see blood flow out from my bruised hands. My mind is in a panic and the fear starts to creep up through my whole body because I don't know how to swim and the wall is giving me no respite so I can get my breath. I have begun to feel weak...Read On

It was a whirlwind between us that ended too soon...

The first time I meet you in a guitar store, strumming a Gibson Les Paul guitar I know you are the man I should be scared to get closer.

Fireflies

The dreamer in me ...

When I was a child, I enjoy running around the rice field, balancing on a very narrow mud road as I keep running fast chasing grasshoppers, butterfly, bumblebee or dragonfly. When I was not running, I enjoy catching dragonfly through their wings. I would put sewing tread on its tail and let them fly. I would imagine flying with them riding on their back while I would run fast. My mother...Read On

Derealization

King kong was a daydreamer ~ Michael Haley

Is this a dream? Like you're on top of That rocky mountain Floating in the air Dancing aurora above. That feeling of  Light headedness Wanting to laugh Wanting to cry All at the same time. Is this nightmare? That feeling of angry Laughing at yourself on How stupid you feel. That feeling of crying Shouting to the world  How you hated yourself. That feeling of scared...Read On

Dead Twigs

When everything felt like closing on you....

Desperately watered you every day Singing to you some calming songs Talking to you, begging not to die Leaves keep falling out on you Starting to dried up and died on me Cried to sleep the whole day through Woke up and looking at you, still sad Said to myself your roots are still alive Have to save you, replant where you Might grow back to a new life Despite you're dead twigs now Replanted...Read On

The Feast of All Saints

I was working late after celebrating the feast of all Saints.

Except for the guards at the lobby, I was the only one in the building working. All lights were off. The only lights are on my working area. Coffee at my side as I busied myself on the financial reports. They were needed within two days time for the stockholders meeting. All my attentions were focused on the white screen of the computer. When all of a sudden, it felt chilly and the scent...Read On

Speak no evil .. Hear no evil ... See no evil ...

The Painter

When all you can dream about is to paint using all the colors in the rainbow...

Deep anguish in her voice. "What are you afraid of?" Comforting voice, soothing her. "I will lose vibrant colors in my paintings. I will never be like Van Gogh anymore." Crying pitifully, declaring...Read On

No flowers are growing in our garden...

I am replanting my basil for they are growing a lot and it smells so wonderful, so are my mint and aloe vera. Yes, herbs are all my plants, I can't seem to grow flowers in my garden.

The Waltz

Learning to move together with the music ...

We held each others hand, You held me close in your arms, The music played to start our decent, Where our two left feet take us. We sway familiarizing ourselves, We awkwardly acquainted with the flow, We glide learning step by step, As we have never tried dancing before. You started to confidently lead, You forgot our two left feet, You move briskly into the other side, As we have never...Read On

Her Dance

Pare ko, this is how I picture you in my mind ...

He came early, talked to everyone he knew, danced with the girls he liked, even flirted with some. She arrived late in the evening and didn't know anyone around. Too shy to even start to talk with anyone, she just took a seat in the corner to watch. He, on the other hand, danced the night away, different girls in his arms and laughing with everyone. He then looked her way, gave her a smile...Read On

Where promises are made to be broken ... a heart...

By the shore in the middle of the night, She always sit at the big rocks, Waiting for her lover to come,  Who promised to be there.

By the shore in the middle of the night, She always looks up at the moon, Asking him of her heart's fears, For...Read On

The Creep Named Rune

The creep that I am...

I choose to sit alone in the dark, Not for attention or pity. I choose to sit alone in the dark, Because I'm afraid of humans. I choose to sit alone in the dark, It is what unwanted like I do. Lurking only within The shadow of darkness, Where I would want to stay. I choose to crawl alone in the dark, To be undetected by anyone. I choose to crawl alone in the dark, Not to be hated...Read On

When She Cries

There is always something behind the tears...

It's not always on a whim or just because she wants something or to be pitied. It doesn't mean a thing at all. She cries because happiness is too overwhelming. She cries because she yawns. She cries because the wind hurts her eyes. She cries because something touched her heart. She cries because the pain is too much to bear. She cries because she felt lost and alone. She even cries without...Read On
