    a part of you

    a part of you
    still occupies my mind.
    it opens and closes
    and becomes unconfined.

    with a mere flash of memory
    that suddenly unwinds;
    my stillness crumbles,
    to the ground it grinds.

    a part of you
    still blurs my mind.
    i want to keep you eternally
    but now, i must leave you behind.

    catharsis

    enchant me with your kiss
    with those intoxicating lips.
    entice me with your eyes,
    stares that dared to lie.

    latch me once more
    to the soul that i've enamoured.
    clamouring the love that i have lost;
    but to retrieve it at what cost?

    defy everything, my heart shouts;
    cast away all the shadows of doubts.
    release all the hurt inside
    and pray — until all the pain subsides.

    re-bleed

    tempt my heart,
    i invoke you.
    i'll fall again
    like a fool.

    i don't care,
    if again i bleed.
    just to be with you,
    my precious dear.

    halika/paalam

    halika,
    lumapit ka.
    hagkan ako ng mahigpit
    kahit sa huling sandali.

    dam'hin mo
    ang init ng aking pag-ibig
    kahit sa ilap na sulok
    ng aking panaginip.

    halika,
    titigan ang aking mga mata.
    silayan muli
    ang ating masasayang alaala.

    na minsang nagbigay
    sa atin ng lubos na ligaya;
    na ngayo'y unti-unting naglalaho,
    umaagos kasabay ng mga luha.

    paalam,
    sa pagibig ng nakaraan;
    sa pagmamahal na ipinatikim
    at ipinadama ng walang alinlangan.

    sana'y muling umusbong
    ang pagibig na nalanta't kumupas;
    maging masaya
    sa ating bagong pagaalayan.

    traces

    traces of sparks
    floating in the sky;
    swirling, tumbling...
    unable to disperse,
    leaving my eye mystified.

    akin to the memories
    that is dwelling inside;
    whichever way i tried to uproot
    it clings, it holds... but maybe...
    that is the way i pray it would be left behind.

    impossible love

    i've tasted happiness
    through your lips;
    i've tasted kindness
    through your touch.

    i've been retracing
    your face again and again;
    clamoring your impression
    to stay longer than awhile.

    i've longed these
    memories to fade;
    swore to myself
    to leave all of these behind.

    but all i am is just a fool,
    who cannot let go
    of this unattainable
    and impossible love.

    time

    like the wind,
    time flies unannounced;
    holding it in your hands
    is as impossible as it gets.

    begging for it not to escape,
    it slips slowly;
    creeping away from you,
    painfully leaving you obtunded.

    night rain

    the night shouts
    as the rain falls;
    the splashing noise
    mutes the sound
    of a breaking heart.

    my soul bleeds
    while you walk away;
    the steps you produced
    are like swords
    slowly piercing my being.

    smothered with pain,
    trembling in this falling rain;
    like a lifeless corpse
    laid down in thorns
    completely drowned in misery.

    mainit na gabi

    mainit ang gabi
    balisa at 'di mapakali;
    sa aking balikat,
    ulo mo'y nakahilig.

    dahan-dahang inilapit
    mga labi mong kaibig-ibig;
    tila nangungutya,
    nanunuksong sunggabin.

    dinikit papalapit,
    katawan ay ipinihit;
    tibok ng puso'y bumilis,
    tumagaktak ang pawis.

    'di malaman ang gagawin
    mga kalamna'y tumigas,
    unti-unting nagliliyab
    ang damdaming kinukubli.

    ika'y bumulong at nagsalita,
    marahang sinabi ang gustong mangyari;
    dam'hin mo ang kalangitan
    sa aking nagaalab na piling, o aking giliw.

    isang saglit

    pilit winawaglit
    ngunit patuloy sumisingit;
    sa kamalayang pagal,
    ika'y pumupuslit.

    tila walang katapusan
    at paulit-ulit;
    kisap-matang nakikita,
    mukhang kaakit-akit.

    sa pagpikit ng mata'y
    ako'y nananalagin;
    sana ika'y manatili
    kahit sa isang saglit.
