Truth

Standard

Naked truth
How it hurts
How it pierces my heart
Inflicting little but deep wounds

How I tried to ignore the obvious
How I tried to cover it with beauty
Just to forget the pain
Just to believe a “make belief”

To listen to my truth
To believe in “my truth”
Yet make me ask
What is “your truth?”

I am in pain
Tears just fall in my eyes
Heart squeezed tightly
Asphyxiated by the pain

Balance hardly maintained
Shaken with every blows you made
Would I fall and crumble into ruins?
Left broken and discarded?

Remain Unsaid

Standard

What am I really in your life?

A question that is always recurring in my mind.
Not that I do not have a complete trust with your words,
Not that I doubt the sincerity of your heart,
Not that I find you not fulfilling my needs, wants, desires.
But because I wanted to know what part of your life I am.

Am I part of a greater whole, or am I just a portion of you?
I ask because I have expectations,
I ask because I wanted to know how I should act,
I ask because I wanted to know if I am being too much,
I ask because I wanted to know until where I can cross.

I wanted to touch you as much
But refrain for the fear that you will reject me,
Would you allow me to touch you?
Would you allow me to take a hold of your soul?

Would you open to me your truest desires?
Your doubts? Your fears? Your bliss?
Would you allow me to share your world?
Would you allow me to be the partner for your life?

Questions that I kept within me;
Questions that I might not be able to utter;
Questions that would probably left unanswered;
As I kept it all inside of me.

You and Only You

Standard

Oh sweet love
Promises are what we have
Far-fetched as it may
Stronger is what it makes us

Thinner as it becomes
Every day of our lives
Even when we are far apart
I hope, until then, we stand firm

Every waking hour of the day
I pray for the time we will meet
From opposite poles of the earth
A day to celebrate, it will be.

A time to hold each others hand;
A time to spend a day with each other;
A time to just be lost in the conversation;
Both of us isolated in our own created world.

A time that I will be lost in your gaze;
A time that I will be absorbed in your voice;
A time that my focus will be you alone.
You alone, my love. You and only you.

You Now Own My Heart

Standard

I started wandering as you let me explore this world
I read and write. I ask and respond.
I feed my hungry mind with all the knowledge I can consume.
I listen to all the stories I can take a hold of; voluntarily shared to me.
I am happy.

By this freedom that you have bequeathed upon me
I know I will learn. I know I will make mistakes.
I know that I will be hurt. I know I will feel pain.
But aren’t these worth it?
For by then, I know I have gained wisdom and experience.

But each passing day, I started to feel empty still.
Despite this vast ideas, despite these varied experiences,
I am still unsatisfied. My thirst is still not quenched.
And I started reflecting why.
Then, I understand.

My life is not entirely about language; my life is not entirely about politics,
My life is not entirely about adventures; my life is not entirely about science,
My life is not entirely about a single field.
My life is not all about what’s in my mind but also what’s in my heart.
And that’s where I would discover soon enough.

My mind can go miles away, but my heart will always stay
To you I already surrender my heart, for I know you deserved it.
You earned it with every word you have said.
You earned it with every act you have shown.
You now own my heart.

Allegory

Standard

Let me bask in the rays of your sunlight
Let me feel your warmth beneath my skin
Let me witness your glowing face
To behold your beauty, oh it is so divine.

Bring me into desert
Isolate me with your love
Whisper in my ears your loving voice
Caress me with your soft tingling breeze.

Bathe me at night with your moonlight
Show me the serenity of your face
Entrance me with your jewels shining above the vast sky
Talk to me with your sweet melodious voice
And dear me ecstasy is my response.

People Stay. People Leave.

Standard

People stay, people leave
What would the two of us end up to be?
Would we stay to wait and see?
Or would we leave to explore and be free?

People stay, people leave
What would the two of us choose to be?
Would we be together for eternity?
Or would we be separated permanently?

People stay, people leave
What would they leave us to be?
Would they leave us whole, body and soul?
Or would they leave us scattered and foul?

People stay, people leave
What would the state of our mind be?
Would we find peace and harmony?
Or would we find wreckage and agony?

People stay, people leave
What would our hubris be?
Would we remain to be in superiority?
Or would we turn to be the notorious entity?

People stay, people leave
What would the fate unfold to thee?
Would it be fame and ecstasy?
Or would it be obscurity and misery?

People stay, people leave
Whatever choice we choose to keep
Will say what we will end up to be:
A man of prosperity or a man of poverty.

Two People Stand and Wait

Standard

Two people stand and wait
From opposite poles they stay
In every waking hour of the day
In every turns and cycles of the earth.

Two people stand and wait
With each passing day,
They wait and wait.
When will their waiting comes to its end?

Two people stand and wait
For the time of the day they will meet;
For the time of their hour to be still;
To capture the moment they wanted to steal.

For this time of the day
They both stop, to say:
“Seize the day!”
Both walk to each other’s nigh.

To Be Owned By You

To be owned by you means to be able to grow in untoiled soil.
To be owned by you means to be able to stand the strongest storm.
To be owned by you means to be able to be free from the shackles of life.
To be owned by you means to be able to be ‘me’ in spite of all the corruption in the world.

To be owned by you means to be able to achieve the best that I can be.
To be owned by you means to be able to face my fears with all bravery.
To be owned by you means to be able to accept any forms of reality.
To be owned by you means to be able to love unconditionally.

To be owned by you means to be able to express myself more.
To be owned by you means to be able to share myself more.
To be owned by you means to be able to see the world in multicolor.
To be owned by you means to be able to enjoy the deafening silence.

NIGH OF TIME

Standard

Screen_shot_2013-08-15_at_8.18.25_AM.png.662x0_q70_crop-scale

You are a star too far to reach;

In the vast sky I dare only to seek;

To see your light shine above me even at a glimpse;

Gives me delight now that I can speak

Oh distant star, tonight I only want;

Is for you to cast your light;

Twinkle for me in the dark and give me a sign;

As for what this feeling might be like.

I know how insane this thought might sound

But I fear that I might be falling out of love

As the days we spent every night

Comes closer and closer to its nigh.

BLINDSPOT

Standard

images (1)

You told me words I couldn’t believe;

Told me those are truths you perceived;

Asked me why I couldn’t believe;

And told you the truth I just couldn’t see.

Again, you asked me how I couldn’t see

Something as real as I can be;

Am I a blind who doesn’t see?

Or someone who just chooses not to see?
