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.
