Two of us…

i let go with your own mistakes

a grinning smile is all that it takes

your being mad always pass me by

there’s no use to fight not even a try

you’ve thrown me plates and you’ve missed

but I’ve thrown you back a flying kiss

don’t know why i can’t do a revenge

hugging you is all that i can avenge

hurting me seems to be forever

but it makes my love grow stronger

why this feeling doesn’t get furious

to be mad at you the reasons are obvious

i can’t have anybody and set you free

the two of us anytime will be three…

My gift is a song for you…

I’ll gather all the melodies to hum

From the other places of the world

With tunes so hard to bring into mind

And harmony so tough to build and find


Tiring thoughts have me catch some forty winks

Dream of cherubs and seraphs with heavenly links

They would assist and guide my feeble hands

To write the words and buzz without the bands



This is all I can offer to please you

To dedicate a song meant to caress you

Once this lovely piece is over and done

My heart will sing for you and to everyone



Gather all the kings and queens young and old

Bringing with them some gifts of glaring gold

From palaces and kingdoms in glittering grandeur

Mine is a song with love in splendored millionfold …

We are meant to be

recounting moments when i was down in dumps
clouds in laze straining the sun
sounds and motions were ultimately restrained
these were the days i bumped the humps

almost shed some precious tears
my heart had roughly stopped beating
facing the time of one of my fears
rule of yours had me emptied hoping

dusts of spats repeatedly emerged
small things became war of words
not you nor i have claimed the fault
your tongue was always the sharpest sword

years were routinely in that troubled ways
unceasingly waited to hear the magic of sorry
won’t let the hurt to crush and outweigh
my love for you was so special to me

through the times you became my strength
i was slumping down when you lifted me so high
believing in myself that this love would be my last
to triumph over discomforts in my battle cry

our life’s shadowed moments have their ends
to cheer our hearts again everyone would envy
streams of these troubled waters have their bends
our love we have kept, ’cause we are meant to be…

Sunrise of my life

by : Bacardi Gold
12/Dec/2020



maybe you are the dawn
of this entire life
as you begin to show
the signs of the day’s echo

perhaps it will be quick
to await your true colors
to see and hear the secret
the duration of the day’s spirit

truth is at hand of the dawning
the start of a brand new beginning
the birth of a new creation
the rise of the golden sun

now this is the right time
for the truth to be mine
tell me all the hurting secrets
the mystery in your heart’s buckets

let me feel the love i share
let all your closets be bare
is there someone else in your life
that will cause my only strife

let me know, as the sun’s still bright
let me hear, as it shines the blessed light
the sunrise is holding on
’till all of the truth have shone

the innocence of dawn have passed
the wildness of the sun rises fast
the twilight sun not to be blackened by stain
as you and i will be in darkness again…








I have to cry it out…

I have to cry it out
This pain I have inside
I have to empty this heart
Of the burning burden I have

Looking at every moment
Of my every day’s silence
Seems to drown me forever
In the sea of constant surrender

Maybe in this breathing time
I have to cry it out
The sadness, the bitter taste of my life
I have to be free and let my tears cry it out

Chances are there behind
The second time around
My heart will choose the one
Someone whose love will never be gone …


I was wrong to think…

You changed the days into happy ones
The strange ways of looking up the sun
You blew the clouds away from the murky sky
To clear the things up and resist a goodbye

You played your cards so well
Those aces you matched without a yell
You laid them like you’re a topnotch player
Hiding nothing in winter’s cold and in the hot summer

All the while, everybody knows you’re tired of me
The reasons are there for you to believe and see
I thought the love I’ve shown you is enough to love me
I thought you’ve wished a summer breakup and be free

But I was wrong to think that you’re leaving
To let everyone to know that I will be grieving
Yet I’m happy I must admit deep in my heart
You asked me to try again and have a brand new start





Bluer than Blue

by : Bacardi Gold
14/Nov/2020


green is to be young
the dawn of a new season
then you came into my life
when we were still not man and wife

greener days like the life of a tree
when time begins to move and flowing free
gentle whispers blown by different winds
green hearts of ours echoed the footprints

as we lived our lives and gambled our youth
we found ourselves hiding the ultimate truth
unforseen drama of different shades and hue
the promise of Spring turned to lonely blue

now the leaves of the once greener young tree
crumbled to the ground without a trace of glee
the love that we shared was left for another
bluer than blue, the green leaves of Summer

Photography # 37/ Poetry, “I Will Be Tough” – Baler, Aurora, Philippines

Image may contain: plant, tree, outdoor and nature


I feel the hurt
Deep inside me
I feel the burn
My heart is 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…

by : Bacardi Gold
01/Oct/2020


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
