Pakiusap sa Buwan

moon1Madilim ang gabi, malamig ang simoy ng hangin
Kinakausap ang langit na ika’y bumalik na sa akin
Sa tala nakatingala, nangingilid ang mga luha
Pinagdudugtong mga bituin ginuguhit ang iyong mukha

Liwanag ng buwan, gabay ko patungo sa’yo
Kinakausap ang hangin na ipadala ang init ng yakap ko
Binabalikan sa isipan, ang tamis ng nakaraan
Binubulong sa sarili “bakit mo siya pinakawalan?”

Ngiti at boses mo, ako’y nangungulila
Sa init ng iyong halik ramdam ang pag-aalaga
Dalangin ko lang ay muli kang makapiling
Malungkot na puso’y hinihintay ka na dumating.

Makulay ang Buhay?

Heto ako nakaupo sa gilid
Walang ginagawa kun’di sumilip
Sa bintanang nakabukas
Ramdam ang malamig na hanging nagmumula sa labas
Naiisip ang mga taong pinakamamahal
Naaalala ang mga problema ‘pag ako’y nagdadasal
Nangingilid ang mga luha sa aking mga mata
Balik-tanaw ko ang dati noong ako ay bata pa
Inosente at walang problema
Tanging nasa isip ay maglaro sa kalsada
Masaya! Kasama ang ibang mga bata

Ako’y napapapikit na lamang sa naiisip
Nagtatanong sa Poong Maykapal kung bakit,
Mga problema wari ko’y sa akin lumalapit
Pwede bang sa iba muna?
Bakit ba ako na naman?
Ako’y tahimik na lang sa isang tabi
Nakatikom ang aking mga labi
Pero utak ko’y nag-aalimpuyo
Masakit ang ulo na nakatungo
Nangingilid kaninang mga luha, bumuhos na
Sumisikip ang dibdib, nahihirapan huminga
Masakit ang lalamunan at hirap makalunok
Mga pagsubok ng buhay hindi ko labis maarok
Kailan ko maiintindihan ang takbo ng kapalaran
Kung utak ko’y gulong-gulo,
May hinanakit na nakabalot sa aking puso

‘Makulay ang buhay”, wika nila
Tanong ko sa sarili ,”Sa akin ba ay iba?”
Pero pilit kong minumulat ang aking mga mata
Sa mga pagkakataon na siguro’y aking nabalewala
Inaalo ang sarili sa harap ng salamin
Pangiti-ngiti, tinitingnan kung bagay ba sa akin
Sa huli, malalim na buntong hininga
Ang pinakakawalan sa gitna ng aking pag-iisa
At sana sa pagsapit ng gabi
Anghel dela gwardiya, sana sa akin tumabi
Upang ako’y protektahan at gabayan
At’tong isip kong magulo ay maliwanagan

Ako ay ordinaryong tao lamang
Problema ay natural lang
Ang pagsubok ay di natatapos
Pero solusyon man ay di rin nauubos

Please Listen

We had an ordinary love affair
And it all seemed perfect
You were once sweet and gentle
I could not ask for more

We had good moments together
Like we were inseparable
Everything seemed unreal
Everything was so good to be true

Then that day came
The day I feared to happen
You suddenly acted cold and distant
Like we were strangers

Those moments we had shared
Were like dried leaves of Autumn
That slowly withered
As winter approached

I thought ours was forever
But I was all mistaken
You changed more and more
Became somebody that I used to know

What about the dreams we dreamed together?
You said you love me,
You said I was meant for you
Where had I gone wrong?

I never cried
You should be proud of me
I was strong enough
And stood on my ground

I waited for your words
Waited to hear your voice
But who was that?
She seemed so close to you.

I watched from afar
Saw you embraced her so tight
The way you used to embrace me
And made promises

Tell me, please
Where did I go wrong?
I want you back
I want us back

I beg you
Don’t hurt me like this
I still believe
We could make it work out

Don’t crumple my heart
I still hold on to you
Don’t throw my love away
Give us a chance

If I made mistakes
Forgive me so
I know where I stand
If you need space, so be it

Think of it a thousand times
and as time goes by
Always remember
I will wait for you until whenever

It’s Temporary

Power is not always it,
Like money people keep.
For truth holds authority
While the best makes history.

Fame is fatal,phenomenal
superficial, but magical.
Temporary or permanent
Fright sticks, it’s evident

Highs and lows
The water flows
Stars shine brightly
Blinds know, maybe

Comets speed up
Spotlights heat up
Fame is viral
Thus detrimental

The Night Awaits

Here comes
The black curtain
That slowly covers
The windows of my soul
The theatre
To which I stand still
Is now dark
And no one to hold.

It’s another night
To sleep by
Another nightmare
To struggle upon
As strangled thoughts
Multiply
Fear encloses my being
And so on.

I breathe in
And breathe out
Sweating over fright
Of the unknown.
Unstable ground
Keeps my knees weak
Yet I stand still.
Alas! My fear has grown.
