These are but vain attempts to express, by one who wears her heart on her sleeve. Words, much like love, can be ever elusive... ever frustrating... like trying to paint a million stories on a single canvass. If you will read, please do not ask. Just feel. Or at least try to. The meaning is, whatever you have felt to be there, or the lack thereof :)

Because You Are.


I am running away
I'm hiding
Because I don't want to confront
 this insistent ghost
So confused - my mind is reeling
Screaming from this madness,
From the seeming loss.

Yes, you're here   
but I'm not sure if you're still
The cherished friend I have loved and known
By one lie borne of suspicion,
I seemed to have driven you away
Heavens! The thought just scares me so.

Mon Ami


And I thought I've exorcised my demons
When I gave vent to my collected steam
But you're more than a powerful specter that lingers
You're an elusive but continuing dream

You're wreaking havoc upon my reason
A sniper who caught me with my defenses down
A torment, a savage storm to my sensibilities
A kryptonite to all the strength I own

Lingering thoughts.


Lingering thoughts
Are fingerprints in the mind
An imperceptible shock wave
That nevertheless disturbs the consciousness.

It is a thought that's unshakable,
    Impossible to ignore
Like the soundless whispering of a gentle breeze
It moves the heart
    And makes the spirit
Restless.

Enrollment blues 2001 #1



It’s Reg time na naman
And as usual gutom na ‘ko
K’ya lang as usual din
'alang perang pan-lunch si ako
Okei lang, sanay na naman
And to think problema ko tuition
But by the grace of our Lord, alam ko,
Magagawaan ng paraan ‘yon
Third year n asana ‘ko ngayon
Kaso nagkaloko-loko
K’ya nga I’ve to quit running around n
Coz nasasayang ang panahon
“ba ‘to, ba’t tunog coño yata
ang pinagsusulat ko dito ngayon
Trip ko lang, o basta lang ba,
O nalipasan na naman ako ng gutom ?!
