This coffee is for me
I made it…

Like my life now
I live it

Others may say
Destiny have fixed it…


I’ve known you
sweet as honey
bees have dropped by
feasted the pollen grains

bees have departed
you endured the hurt
and time was wasted
in cleaning the dirt

gone like summer rains
that never fell
like waters in the river
that has bid farewell

but now, you have reasons to smile
as I am the bee who will reconcile
and I’m here not ready to give up
I feel your lips on the lid

of my coffee cup…

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…

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

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…
