He looks at him
With envious eyes
It’s as if he asks himself why
He asks himself where is the love he had
He asks himself when will he find love
And he looked down
And fell his tears to the ground
He steps slowly
With a smile on his face
His happiness, so evident
His smiles were all over his face
He finally found his love
So when will I?
Water runs dry
A story untold
The blues kill me
Tears filling my pillow
My heart feels so shallow
I hate to see your shadow
I have gone through a dark mellow
A poetry duet by Lenanoid and Sherry:
In a small world, here we meet
Running around in circles
With our hearts beating
Music plays while you’re sleeping
Around the clocks in every tics…
Mind wanders wide while the everybody’s on a slumber..
And I bother to dance in the wildest imaginings..
In the dungeons of secret musings..
I was captivated before I even knew
In your eyes, I have found something true
My heart pounded fast as I see you
Still feels like you erase the blue
In each breathe that waves through you..
Is a trail of interlaced memories..
That waves in the pathways through heavens …
And breeze swiftly among the fields of cedars..
I would kiss in the wake of the cold morning

Her poems are beautiful and lovely :)
Walk like a Queen
Dress like a Slave
Work like a Princess
Looking forward for her Crown Jewel
People speak when they want to
People act when they feel to
People say things that can tear you apart
But as long as you know your heart
Don’t give up..
It’s a dark world after all
Let your light shine upon them all..
Just keep walking
If I could disappear
And go to anywhere
I would go freely
And here, I escape
For Shane (Sheena, my seatmate)
She’s a girl who’s beside me
Hummingly kind and so entirely
Amplifying kindness, she has a good heart
Not so surprising cause she believes in God
Everyday, I sit beside her, she is Shane
For Ellen May (a Facebook friend)
Each deep thought strikes her head
Letters then come and she writes it well
Life lessons and some pondering comes in place
Each life has a story to tell
Night time arrives and she’s bound to work
Maybe I haven’t known her for too long
And I haven’t seen her, either in person
Yet I feel, she’s definitely not a morning person
Jem at “Jemverse – Life in Words” gave me this One Lovely Award a few days ago, and I’m much thankful about this. Having an award means so much to a blogger or a poet because it’s like saying “Hey, don’t stop writing, don’t stop rhyming, You inspire me” And for this, I am grateful :)
The rules for this award are:
- Thank the blog that nominated you
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Identify 15 blogs you love and
- Tell each of them about this with a comment on their blogs.
The Seven Things About Me:
- It’s my dream to have an android cellphone. Cause what I got now is a Nokia Asha 309. Looking forward to a cellphone in which I can save drafts for my poems. Since I don’t erase messages, my phone hangs (like it has lost its mind) when it’s reaching full capacity.
- I’m super fragile. I guess it shows in my posts. (Laughs)
- Pink is my favorite color. I love songs by Pink (the artist)
- In 2012, I lost 10 pounds overnight. I slept at 64 kilos and woke up at 54 kilos, due to a high fever as complication of UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
- My favorite food is pastaaaa. (Carbonara and Spaghetti are my favorites)
- My favorite movie, so far, is Maleficent. I don’t know what’s with it, but I’m fascinated by the following scenes: (The dialogue between the King and Maleficent, The scene where Maleficent’s wings were cut, and the morning she woke up, she got broken without it, AND the scene where her wings came back – magnificent!)
- I am also fascinated by arts. I have been to an art gallery last Sunday, and oh, they are great! The thing is, I have no talent in painting, nor drawing. That’s why everytime I see a masterpiece, I’m astound!

She takes a deep breath
Not minding tomorrow
Not thinking about yesterday
She steps slowly
To the shadows of her dark past
Slowly tears fell from her eyes
She was burnt long before she knew
She can no longer handle the storm inside her
She then disappeared
And through silence, she recovered
And long gone, she flew again
With her wings, all back in
With her spirit whole again
She was a girl with a fragile heart
Nobody saw her fall apart
No one knew she’s got a soft feeling
That can easily break with your screaming.
To the point where you lose
To the point where I win
To the point where there’s no point.
I hear you talkin’
The rants you keep on saying
And it’s me you’re suspecting
How can we turn into nothing?
I see you saw me going
And the bags I’m packing
Are at the front door waiting
Since September evening
The roses you gave were cut and stepped
Its beauty and power no longer has effect
How can you be so selfish when we’re not even meant
You better keep loving as you watch me leaving
I love you
But you love yourself too much
So how about me?
I feel you, my bitter melon
Nobody wants to eat you at first
But if they only knew
You’re not that bad, hey
They never knew what’s inside of you
Cause they judge by what they see of you
Hey bitter melon, I’m here, I’ll have you
You’re welcome in my world if they don’t want you.
THIS GOES OUT TO ALL DISCRIMINATED GAY OUT THERE:
I often ask myself and wondered why
While there’s a glimpse of cloud in the sky
While they were mocking me for who I am
Because they do not see themselves in me
They haven’t tried to walk a day in my shoe
So I cried alone, so my weakness will not show
But I know manhood’s not measured by what they know
But by how someone love their own
So I ignore the bullies and the discriminating critics
They looked at me as if they say “boo!”
They’re acting like our kind are doomed
But I know, out of love, I was created, I’m also a human
Their eyebrows raised when I walked their way
Not minding what I’ve gone through a day
They won’t care, they won’t know how it is to be a gay
Special Thanks to John Maverick Jocson for contributing the title for this poem.
You make me breathless
With your caress
You left me powerless
No more, no less
And with every touch
You make me feel alive
With your head on my shoulder
It just couldn’t get any better
Your romance blooms like a rose
As my heart that was once closed
You opened my senses to love
Now I’m flying freely as a dove
This face you once saw
Will someday grow old
Wrinkles will be on my skin
My vision will not be so clear
My hair will soon be white
But I’ll still take care of you
I hope you know that once in a while
I always have you on my mind
My beauty will fade
My teeth will fall
My back will bend
Until I’m stuck in bed
Like a dying flower, I will fade
But in my heart, it’s just a decade
The skin that you see now, the skin you feel
Will turn crumpled, until you no longer see me.
In my quest to be everything
I became nothing
So I tried to spit them fire
But though, I drowned in the sublime
My words scribbled and mumbled
And it got me twisted over fabled
I guess that’s what a chocolate is for
When everything seems to be going wrong
Give me a worry-free Monday afternoon
Give me something worth waiting for
Spare me silence and I’ll give you freedom
But it’s me who’s chained in boredom
In a five street highway, I stood in the middle
Nowhere to go, I don’t know where to walk
So I picked the way which is close to scribbles
And there I walked, not bothered If I’m not heard.
There was a girl
She tried to fit in
She tried everything
But nothing seems to work
No one seems to be fine
Nothing seems to rhyme
So she stood in front of the mirror
And loved her reflection
She loved what she saw
She felt uncanny
So she took out her sword
She’d like to slice every piece she saw
But then, oh, She lose
On surrender, she loved all her flaws
And she lived happily ever after
There are so this days
When emptiness is a yes
When ground seems so close
When the rope seems so lose
And you, you take it to the level
Where you’re the only clever
Nothings seems to care
No one seems to dare
Words are spoken
They are what their mouth are
Where follies are
Another busy day
Take me to the hay
Take me to the roof
Let me take a look
And oh, that’s so down
Cars blowing horn
Nah, just let me sit
And a cup of coffee, I sip
In the skies is where I long to be
To be an air flowing freely
Passing by as the earth go round
Conquering mountains as I surround
And I joined my kind as we pass by
The group of air as we look down
Freely going, freely passing
Looking upon the land as in the skies I’ll be seeing
I’ll be a bubble in the air, giving you joy.
Dance to your own beat
Don’t mind those who are looking
Sing and let your soul soar
Never hold back, never hide
And when the rain falls down on you
Don’t be afraid, you just gotta go on
Everything will be alright, dear
I am here to wipe your fears
From her first walks to her first talks
Brought her parents so much joy
On her 12, she first carried crafts of her hands
On her shoulders she carried, to buy a land
And on her 20’s she dances and sang
On her town that she’s so known
As a girl who sings out loud
A girl with a golden heart so unfound
On her 30’s she bear children
One with golden hands of art
One with hands which had rhymes
One is painting, one is writing this
On her 40’s nearly 50’s she guarded them
Telling stories of her past and deep sentiments
Saying goodness, putting kindness
To her children, she taught meekness
And on her 60’s, she got sick, got her bone weakened
A bed and a box of medicine in a gloomy weekend
And on a Sunday she left, leaving her empty
A glimpse of her smiling is what had left her hoping
“October 10 is my mom’s supposed to be 65th birthday, but she left 2 years ago. I made this for her. To all of those who’s still with their mom, love them while they’re here. It’s hard to lose one. Cause you can never have another”
Those hands picked the three leaves
From the spot where she lives
Her world was changed and uncluttered
With just one sip of tea, life’s all that matters.

She stood by the cliff
And like a falling leaf
She fell to the ground
Cherished the moment
And erased the frown
Her life was full of memories
Her heart full of scars and remedies
In this earth she walked
Like a passerby she lived
Each moment in every minute worthwhile
