Tick Tock!

IT COUNTS. Everything counts..
No diggity!

Tick tock and I’m still stuck
with your tranquilizing voice.

Tick tock and I’m star-struck
with your undoubted gentleness. Continue reading

It Doubles The Burden

SOME SAYS it was alright. There’s nothing wrong with it. But there are some who don’t wanna hear it. They said that they don’t like it.

But to whom will I open my ears? I don’t know..

Maybe a friend of mine is right –everybody doesn’t need to know something. Continue reading

Waring Nababaliw

WARING NABABALIW sa paglipas ng araw
doon, dito, at sanman, ang hanap ay ikaw
kahapon, kanina, maya’t maya, ika’y tinatanaw
sa aking mga titig ika’y matutunaw

Waring nababaliw sa paglipas ng gabi
sa aking isipan ikaw ang siyang sumasagi
sa aking pagtulog ika’y di maisantabi
sa aking panaginip ika’y namamalagi

Waring nababaliw sa aking nararamdaman
kahit ang sarili’y ‘di ko na rin maintindihan
nagagawang maitago ngunit hanggang kailan
aking pagtingi’y tunay, ito ang katotohanan

Waring nababaliw sa tuwing ika’y napapansin
kailan mo ba malalaman ang lihim na pagtingin?
kailan mo ba makikita ang tunay na lihim?
ako’y nahihirapan at ako’y nasasaktan din.


A Little Difference Is a Big Change

THERE WILL come a moment in our life when we’ll look back and realize we’ve met many different people. They, different for us.. so do we, different for them. Little did we know that there was this certain person who changed us. Changed us in a way we never imagined. Changed us into someone a lil different from what we used to be.

We’ll come to realize that they, he or she, didn’t change us at all. But we did change for them. We accepted the change which has been waiting for so long. Finally we learned to accept it wholeheartedly, accepted it without a single doubt.. And we owe it to them, her or him.

One morning.. we’ll just wake up with a fresh eyes as if we’re just born again and we’ll see life in a different perspective.

The morning light isn’t just a dazzling light.. but a light that would mark a new beginning. Human beings aren’t just people living.. but there’s more to them than what we should have known. Animals aren’t just creatures, not just pets.. but they are living things capable of caring. Music isn’t just a sound we listen to.. but are songs capable of comforting.. Different views and they removed that blindfold from us.

Our life’s just be different since they came. Our life seems to be better than just enough. People came and they are oblivious to what they have done.. oblivious to how they have affected us.. oblivious that they are the reason for a better person right before their eyes.. oblivious that a little difference is definitely a big change..

I’ve met a lot of different people and that certain person who have driven me to write about this certain change.. And now maybe you’re oblivious, too, that you, yourself, became different person to someone.. that you, yourself, cause a real change to someone.

You and I.. “US”

I’M NO hater
so I can’t hate myself for loving you

I’m no lover
so I can’t love anyone else more than you

I’m no photographer
so I can’t picture us together

I’m no reader
so I can’t read your mind

I’m no writer
so I can’t write u and i

I’m no painter
so I can’t paint my life without yours

I’m no story-teller
so I can’t tell our story

I’m no singer
so I can’t sing my feelings for you

I’m no song writer
so I can’t write a song about us

I’m no inventor
so I can’t invent us

There’s even no us

But one thing I’m sure

I am a dreamer
so I can dream

There’s us
There’s you and I.


Worth a Million Words

I HAVE read lots of books
I have read hundreds of poems
I have read millions of words

But still I haven’t read a word

I haven’t found a word
A word that is right for you
A word that would describe your importance to me

There seems no word
I’ve encounter a million
I’ve discovered a number

Still it’s not right for you

So maybe a poem will be enough
So maybe this poem will worth a million words
So maybe in this poem you’ll find
if not the right word, then the right feelings

So maybe in this poem you’ll find
my heart

And maybe this poem
will be more than enough
for you my dear
to know what I really feel..


“The Once” That Won’t Last

DOES MAN ever been in love?
Do I ever been in love?
I don’t know.
No one will ever know if one ever fall in love.

Because I once said that..
Love never subsides.
If it does.. then it’s not love.

Because I once said that..
We only love once, we only fall in love once.
If you think you’ve fallen in love many times..
think again.. because it’s not love.

So man only love once
And that once won’t last
No one will ever know if it is love
What we’ll only know is that..
If that’s love, it’ll never be gone.

So man only love once
And that once won’t last
But we’ll know if it’s not love
The moment it is gone, we’ll know
That it is not really love at all.

So I don’t know what I’m feeling for you.
But I’m sure I feel something for you.

If this is really love, then so be it.
If it is not.. then all I know is..
it is something special.


Now And One Day

NOW, IT wouldn’t hurt to talk to a stranger,

But one day, we’re not gonna be strangers anymore.


Now I’m falling for you,

But one day, I’ll fall all over again.


Now I’m asking you for a friendship,

But one day, I’ll ask for your heart.


Now maybe you still don’t know what I’m feeling,

But one day, you’ll know, you’ll feel it, too.


Now I’m hiding your identity from people,

But one day, I’ll reveal who you are.


Now I know that I love you,

But one day, I know I’ll still love you.


Now I’m telling the world how much I love you,

But one day, I’ll let you know how much I love you.


Now I’m telling you, invisibly, I love you,

But one day, I’ll tell you in the eye, I love you.


Now I’m just another human being to you,

But one day.. one day.. I’m gonna be special to you.


Song Lyrics Into Love Story

I WAS scrolling through my cellphone when I saw you driving downtown. Your stare was holding and now I’m paralyzed still stuck at that time. I’m standing here and can hardly breathe. Something’s telling me it might be you. This could not be happening to me. I want to know your name but I was much too shy. But I’ll never be the same, if we ever meet again.

You ask me my name. And I answered why don’t you stay? Let’s have a coffee and pie.

As days go by.. Your eyes, your smile, makes me want you. The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall. You can take my breath away. What if we fall in love the day today?

Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream. I’m the one who wants to be with you and deep inside I hope you’ll feel it too. I need to know I can see you smile each morning and look into your eyes each night for the rest of my life.

I love you like a love song. I like your smile. I like your vibe. I like your style. The reason I love you is you being you. Just you. I need you like water, like breath, like rain. I could be the one.

You were just a dream that I once knew. And you were there, you were everything I’d never seen. God gave me you.

But where have the times gone baby it’s all wrong, where are the plans we made for two? It’s sad, so sad. It’s a sad, sad situation.

I’ve been keepin’ busy all time just to try to keep you off my mind. It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late. I said it’s too late to apologize. I am in misery.

But if I let you go that will be the biggest mistake of my life. I don’t want you to be somebody that I used to know or even the one that got away.

I’d rather be strong. You’ll never know that it’s driving me crazy. But I won’t let it stop. I won’t give up on us. I remember the days.. The way you make me feel, you knock me off my feet.

I just love you. I don’t know why. I just do. I love you this big.


Close To Perfect

IF I ask you to

would you agree with me?


If I ask you to

would you come with me?


Come on!

let’s escape!


Let’s leave them behind

the sorrow, the grief


Let’s leave them behind

the reality, the life


Come with me

to where something is everything

and nothing is something


Come with me

to where lies are jokes

and truth is just a dream


Come with me

to where words are not knives

but a perfect melody just for us


Come with me

to where promises are not glasses to be broken

but glasses to be fixed


Come with me

to where the ocean flies in the sky

and the clouds dive into the sea


Come with me

to where everything is close to perfect

and the only missing is you


So come with me

and everything will be perfect.


Would you come? With me?
