Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth. 

delving feet on the earth
the soft murmur of a sudden reawakening
like how it feels to touch a solid ice
laid bare on a drying arm
the gentle caress of the windblow
assorting the coldness of an empty night
taming the fire within
quenching the glory of the unseen

thoughts deviated from afar
engulfing like a distant star
where rain has sipped to depth
unsinking, unfailing the enormous left

'tis season a-joined a merciful
the laughs seem all so bountiful
yet strangers may all be unchallenged
trust, don't give, don't surrender
for at the footsteps, may soon be a revenge
unknowing, uncertain, unpredicting
lest the consequence, devastating
so long, again to come

yet, hope will never vanish
for 'tis side it'll be cherished
from truce - attained be nowhere
exclude among forever

Even when I'm old and grey, I won't be able to play it, but I'll still love the game. 

... i'd love to enter in your stargazing scape,
feel... get enthralled, with utmost excitement
would savor the finite bliss of ignorance
but then you're giving me this lil chance...

i could let my imagination imbibe your presence
and let go of my anxiety, as if no one's to blame.
yet i certainly know, that it isn't right or makes sense,
to indulge further, deeper in your game

i must stop now, or must i not?
should i suffer needlessly, or be the nonesuch as i was?
you blurted, "must come now" or "never"
i said, "why would i care?"

your idea seem minute at first
then it grew! so real, i got amazed!
i wanted to kill it but you made the seance as you were
entrapping me twisted, coiled and unremembered

now you read this, and you got appalled
but your smile is unchanging, cuz deep inside you know
how to unravel, solve and then kill the puzzle:
to break into pieces, to bequeath and say farewell.

yet i knew enough, and damaged is yet to come
lamentation feels like forever
drawing in, engulfing my home
must i stir up or beguiled of what it has to offer.

come, and be closer
open my eyes to your decoy
but leave my mind shut
so as not to feel the revolting physics of your choice...

(i'm literally smiling as im done composing this, let's take it to the next level just like inception, lol !!!)

itikom mo ang 'yong bibig
sa pagpanaw ng dilim
upang 'di mamutawi
sa labi mo ang panaghili

itiklop mo ang 'yong mga mata
sa liwanag ika'y 'wag masilaw
bagkus ika'y lumakas
sa dulot nitong pag-asa

yakapin mo ako
sa gitna ng hinaing
pawiin mo ang dusa
at maparam itong pagluha

hawakan mo ako
sa aking kanang kamay
ikaw ay 'wag nang bumitaw
upang ako'y di na mawalay

liwanag mo'y huwag alisin
sa daan ko'y tanglawan
lagi na'y sumama ka
at 'wag nang lumisan pa

This is my first "tula" after a soooooooo long hiatus of composing Tagalog poems. Prior to this was back in my high school days. I'm yearning that creating this tagalog version would enrich the POEMS101 category on my blog. So expect more, as i squeeze juices from my tagalog vocabulary in my succeeding posts.

Differential Equations

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. 

of all the things that outcries my tune
is the emblem of my singing rune
to dance in the flames so hot
bearing this shy type heart

but i know, its never going to happen
the crazy, madness, bursting zen
for the angels are at guard
those demons won't do no ward

ninety-six are those forgotten
grumpiness, when is the start?
is it through feelings that squirted?
or 'tis old age that vibrated?


(i hope im not too blunt here. riddle me please. whatever you thought about it, keep it to yourself)

Cure for the Itch

(this isn't Linkin Park's lyrics)

"A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age. "

Many times i longed for our bodies entwined
In the deepest passion the brain can mime
to hold and touch you so eagerly
that my body aches for thee

Many times i visioned a steamed action
So wanton that coals could melt
That neither water could suppress
Nor dampness could try to recess

And so this time has come
The glorious sparks of thunderous fireworks
of mixed scents to lead a core
where flames of love has to bore

Insanely i indulged further
reaching, arching and fearlessly enjoyed
the ecstasy it brought
the bliss it showered and sought

Alas! i felt numbed and oozed into nothingness
For the tiresome delicacy i tasted
That left my breath almost unchased
That left my mouth dried and unquenched

And then i slowly turned
i could hear the creaking on my bed
and the mattress got into disarray
And so i drew myself up, instantly!

Thinking that somebody must be watching us
I rummaged my face with disbelief
I pinched my arms to reality...
In my dismay... i woke up,
it was only just a dream...

Don't Catch Me If I Fall...

"the most beautiful things are those Unseen"

Touch me when you're away
pained by the distance
of longing and tenderness of grey

see me when you're gone
muddled by the tear drop
only in the vents of courage

feel me when you're weary
of heart; so long been empty
to quell thy mind's serenity

hear me when you're nowhere
echoes to burn no further
let live my spirit aloft

kiss me when you're crazy
to seal my never-ending love
just in time for life's surrender

will you hate me when i'm gone?
for worse i feel no more
of devouring the fire and sore

will you miss me when i'm gone?
for the moments uplifted our souls
carved into the breath of the winds

will you remember me when i'm gone?
if only the leaves could unfall
to frailty of nothingness

will you love me when i'm gone?
for deep of blue cannot compare
the bliss you have shared so rare....

Don't Overcomplicate

"Heroism exist not only on the battlefield, or in public but also inside the head, in the ability to face unpleasant thoughts"

Neither lose nor
triumph for fight
For to walk off the plank
doesn't mean to give up

Fierceness of passion
as conquered by solitude
Vanquishing temptation
to kill thy being crude

Dreamless nights
are soon be over
But deep inside
it yearns to stay forever

Grow up!
and don't overcomplicate
Resist to fall in nowhere
but seek for peace a shelter

Contemplation in Brief

"Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise. "

All my life, I've been searching for tenderness
Lifting my eyes above, to echo the loneliness
The rain has smoothly fell on my cheeks
Infusing the rupture, mending on the bricks

Once there was child, of smiles and cares
Unknowingly savors the moment it shares
Toward the winds of endless hopes
Toward the plays of gripping ropes

the resonance of the melody
humming in thy mind so profusely
unstopping the memory
in remembrance of the past's melancholy

Oh how the days have gone so fast
In the enchantment of each that never last
For why? all thy good things come to end
Alotting sighs and utterance trying to bend

The caress and the passion
To oblivion it came through
That in begging it will never cease
To deploy the ageless truth
