Pagaspas ng Isipan

Nakatanga, nakatulala
isipa’y naglalakbay sa kaligayahang natamasa

Nagpipilit, nagsisikap
inaalala ang mga ngiti at talatang binigkas

Nagsasaya, minsa’y nagdurusa
pagka’t sa liliw ng musika na lang ito mahahanap

Kaya’t…

Sa kailaliman ng pagtulog at mapusyaw na panaginip
doon muling naapuhap ang binuong daigdig
kaulayaw sa lungkot at mga hikbing ninoman di nadinig
nagbabasakaling sa pagsilip may paglingap na madinig.

Ang Manunulat

Nakatitig sa kawalan
naghihintay ng dumaraan
nagaabang ng sinuman
sumasabay sa musikang pumailanlang
yan ang nabubuo sa utak na mapaglaro
nangingimbot ang puso
at labing may ngiting tinatago
nagliliwaliw palagi ang kamalayan
sa saan mang dako, bumubulong sa musang nagdaraan
nagpapaalon, minsay nagpapalunod
upang lengwahe ni Florante ay sya nawang mabuo…

Sa lawa ng Pandin muling naiguhit sa isipan at natagpuan ang musa.. — cheng

I miss you
3 syllables
8 letters

A result of 5 days of being apart
Its crazy that I’m now counting
Pathetic that I’m wishing,
Absurd that I’m acting
like a teenage girl that is blushing.

I miss you, I miss you, I miss you
repeatedly I scribbled as I held my breath
3 syllables, 6 syllables, 9 syllables
24 letters,
another 24 hours of wait.

Can’t you tell how much I miss you?

 

 

On being brave and being a woman, despite of..

Define happiness? what does it include? what do I have to feel?
what do I have to do to get a hold?
Define purpose? what does it consist? how do I know if I’m on the right track?
what should I feel?
Define love? what does it involves? what do I have to feel?
how do I know if its real?

Looking at the queen orb of the night I asked all these, wondering if she knows the answer, hoping she understands how I feel.
I had been holding on, had been striving, fighting, yet little by little my flame starts to dwindle, my eyes starts to ebb tears  and loneliness crept in.

I am Lost.. once again…
and there’s no one there to find me.

 

“Little Girl” – chengboiser

Brave little girl
stand tall with pride
pushed back your hair
wipe those tears aside
mend the wounds of your heart
let loneliness just sink
remember to keep the screams of your soul
utterly hushed and lay meek

Just don’t let them see it
don’t let them know how you feel
don’t let them see your hunger
never reveal your fears.
