I feel the hurt
Deep inside me
I feel the burn
My heart going crazy

I have no choice
To be free but lonely
Then your heart rejoiced
Forgetting me, your one and only

Free as the colors of rainbows
See how it vanished in the sky
Leaving me with all the sorrows
When you finally said goodbye

Tiny and bigger rocks
Littered on the sandy shore
Just like lives here on earth
You stepped on them then you ignored

Gone for another love
In the arms of someone else
My love you’ve felt was not enough
Losing me, I will be tough…

I remember your name…

the rain fell on my lap
it burned my skin
it was colored red
breathing…

sleepless nights came
caressing my dreams
like the hammock of eternity
swaying…

morning sighs of echoes
dropped in my ears
rocking my heart
listening…

i shut my eyes up
my mind was awakened
the place where we met
special memories were set

when i left for home
i carried your shadow
but when the morning came
you left your smiles becoming the past

yet i see you in my coffee cup
gently smiling as i picked it up
you slowly walked back in my memory
when i remember your name…

i remember, i remember
the day you walked out of my life
your lovely smiles returned when
i remembered your name…

I Love You More…

I tread the byways with cold sweat
On a lonely foggy Monday night
To the place where my heart leads
To the tide where love never recedes

Thoughts of your smiles abound with sweets
Dreamy nights afloat even on dusty streets
You have more than a Mona Lisa can possess
More mysterious than her smile, no less

Lovely roses, pink and white
Fresh as the morning drops of dew
In my hand I held them tight
The scent leads me to your daring light

Your troubled nights can’t be dark again
In my arms you lay your worries to drain
Twilight will retreat with sudden burning pain
‘Cause I’ll bring the sunrise cheerfully to fame

As I promised you, I will comply
To deliver my words to your door
This heart will warm the cold ocean floor
You said you love me but, I love you more

My Mind… I Function…

i am a part of the body
of the conscious being
that thinks and perceives
i am reflected in your memory
emotions, choices, sensations, desires
i am involve in remembering
deciding, considering, evaluating

when i see and walk near you
when i hear you speak i listen
when i touch your hand and warms
when i see your eyes meet mine
when i smell the breath from your mouth
and when you smile sweetly at me
i function quick as a wink

sadness and tears defeat me
i give up the war
i surrender to your heartaches
to your anguish and grief
even in your gloominess
i function to offer you relief

this is my mind
together with my heart
i ‘ll conquer the world
just to be with you…
i love you !
i really do !









For us…

I wonder how to do it
how to do it right
When someone is watching me
every move that I take
If I should hide it
and silently make it
Will you take a notice
and tell the world that I…

Yesterday, you didn’t call me
I was waiting, waiting for a ring
The phone was lonely, lonely
to hear your voice at the other end
Oohhh, now the rain is here
now my world is cold
Please tell me if I should call
and make a note that I…

Forgetting the promise
forgetting the day
forgetting how you should say
“I love you”, “You love me”
Either of the two
will do, for you, for me…for us !

Heartbreak in a photograph…

Photo by Jonathan Borba on Pexels.com

Photographs of happy times back when
Cheerful memories are coming back and then
Every moment that sunny thoughts are there
Loneliness are driven and laughter takes its share

Every minute, every hour that we partake
Every dream, every plan that we made
Every word, every smile that you gave
Are the happiness that I’ll carry in my grave

Love has every reason for the pleasure of joy
When we felt the world is ours to last
As long as you are my faithful love
We all kept it here in this photograph

But when the laughter became tears of sadness
The smiles I hid from my happy me
And still we posed for a lovely souvenir
To bury both our heartbreak in a photograph…


A Little Prayer

lift me up, Oh Lord, and console me
shed the burden out and lighten my haul
free me, let me breakout from this rotten fold
take the lead and i’ll follow your direction
to a truthful and righteous intentions

let me listen to a wondrous voice
clear my thoughts from abundant lies
fill my heart with sincerest smiles
teach my lips to talk real truth
and never to speak even a single falsehood

strengthen my weak frail body
to once again fly with vibrant pride
to soar the wide and windy skies
to give me vigor and toughness
and to defy and defeat the evil of sins…Amen .











Perfect Revelation…

Boy:

I feel a glow within your dreamy eyes
The lightness of yourself seems like  clouds
But I see a wiping hand after our “Hi’s”
The look of your face showing some doubts

Teary as you hint hiding a certain thing
I see sadness reacting with what you say
Is the joy you feel means all or nothing
‘Cause I see a tear falling when you say, “ok”

               

               In a minute, the clouds  turn to darkened grey
               Tears become a stream  of flowing watercourse
               The river rushes its waters as her sight turns away
               Flash of glow,  her eyes sprint, her spirit soars

Girl: 

The “ok” and falling tears meant “I love you”
My eyes avoiding yours meant “I didn’t deceive you”
The glow in my eyes I  hide but still you noticed
Is a “Yes”  and solemnly swear, “I promise” … 







Sonata

Photo by Josh Hild on Pexels.com
the wings of the sentimental drifter
winging high grand and stately above us
with little tiny flaps of motion
settled in my lonely singleness 

on top of the curious mountains
at the depths of the freezing cold seas
the pleasant sounds never faltered
to reach the ears of destiny

the rush of the blissful wind
quietly heard the flow of streams 
the lonesome mystifying lullaby 
realized the passage of dreams 

my enchanting melodious sonata
searching for the power to claim  
with the cupid's seducing-tipped arrow  
will sting the notes of the song and win  

heaven sent this nighttime sonata
to swing you to sleep to dreamland 
alter the path of your lovely dreams 
and lead those meanings to my heart...
  



The Shadow, lust of their desires…

Photo by Hoang Loc on Pexels.com
In a flash of surprise
as i looked on the clear spot
in a place not far from my distance
a dark figure cast on the floor
head came out intercepting light 
from the side of the couch's head board 

first it was one, as i thought
later the head became two
came from the chest 
of the first shadow
proverbial pair, man and woman

it was a pleasant scene
kissing on the face and lips
caressing each others hair
then it became so torrid
as if it would not last

the romancing was long 
exchanging places, endless it seemed
without pause, without a breathing space
as if i was the one who would get drown  
in the sweetness of their exchanges

froth from one's mouth
i could feel the excitement 
from their hearts
the lust of their desires
the sensuality
the thirst

soon, the shadow got tired
they held each others lips 
then caressed
wiped each others lips 
with the woman's scarf 
with the man's hankie
then embraced
then a little talk

as they stood from the wide couch
little by little each face came to the light
but why i was the one who felt so nervous
afraid? annoyed? tense? shy?
a mixed of unfamiliar feelings
odd or baffling as i sensed familiarity

then the truth has been unfolded
the woman, the lady
the girl, it's her
she's my girl, my lady, my woman

as they went passed me
i called out her name
the response was silence not knowing me
my heart wept and prepared a revenge
drastic times call for drastic measures
i won't cry over spilt milk
damage has been done
it's over...
