    Like a lost penny on the sidewalk
    You wonder where the time went
    Only realizing its value
    when it's gone.

    Some battles are won
    by simply not fighting
    Trade a rook
    kill a queen
    Defeat a king
    gain a kingdom
    Know when a loss
    brings greater returns.

    I'm at the tip of your tongue,
    always on the verge of
    being remembered.

    Oranges and apples
    rolling under the dining table
    eggs couldn't defy gravity
    and break on impact
    beans cover the floor
    like a masochist's favorite rug
    and leafy greens adorn your feet
    like Hermes' winged sandals
    when their wings are cut off
    You hold in your hand
    the wretched brown paper bag
    torn perfectly at the bottom
    in two, like open lips
    about to scream in frustration
    At first, you stare after
    the rolling fruits as if you
    can miraculously stop their momentum
    and at the strangely beautiful
    mural of edible mess on your floor
    You feel the anger set in
    warming the insides of your throat
    like a geyser of fire about to shoot off
    your hands shake and
    tears slowly blur your vision
    you could've prevented this
    in some form of premonition
    your subconscious tried to
    warn you this would happen
    but you ignored it anyway
    and chose to trust the
    flimsy bag and the feeling
    that the universe wouldn't be that cruel
    Don't you remember that it rains
    when you least expect it?
    Don't you remember the traffic jam
    is at its worse when you're late?
    Who do you blame for these things?
    God, circumstances, you
    But only you cleans up
    the mess.

    A pirate's dream

    I'm digging gold jewelries buried
    in the sand, thousands of them
    but I'm not just taking everything
    I'm choosing the best looking ones
    the most dainty, most intriguing
    I know I'm not supposed to be here
    so I'm digging in all haste now
    taking as much as I can
    even the tacky ones
    chain necklaces, elegant rings
    old and odd looking things,
    Worth a pirate's loot
    Digging, digging...
    I've been digging
    all night it seems
    Imagine my regret
    when I woke up
    realizing I've taken
    nothing.

    Just a body

    just a body until
    you get to know
    somebody better
    And they become
    just nobody again
    after getting to know
    them some more

    For a second, I thought
    everything is alright.
    But it was just someone
    who looked like you
    And hope was crushed
    like a moth's wings.

    If I could, I'll plant
    this melancholy in a fertile ground
    until it grows into a garden
    I can walk on after the rain
    while a sad song plays
    and my tears water the roses
    If I could, I'll plant
    this melancholy and
    have a garden.

    Calm down, I say
    as if a wave subsides midway to crashing.

    Whatever I can't put into words
    I draw in paper
    Whatever's left can be described
    like the color blue to the blind.
