Haiku Series(RAIN)

I will try to write a series of Haiku pieces every week as a practice. This piece was a reply from realistic poetry on twitter and I thought of posting it here as well. ctto of the photo Rain Teardrops from the sky A loss from heaven above Relieving earth’s thirst.       Advertisements

Getting (a little) serious

I have been writing quite a lot of poems in the past few years(if you call it poems), without a single thought if I was even doing it right. So I’m trying to get serious in learning about poetry with the hope that someday people will appreciate what I have written, maybe in a book?(Not…

Advice

You know I got so much to say, Yet you just pretend to listen. So I offer you a half-smile, More to console my aching heart. I listen intently to your whines and give you a half-hearted advice. Wondering why I give a damn when I can’t even get my life in a straight line….

Another blabber

Yesterday was a great day for me. I slept well and I felt energized. It was such a great day. But then the night came and I suddenly felt uneasy, there was an overflowing anxiety that I was feeling and I had no idea where it was coming from. I slept at almost dawn and…

Parasites!

Oblivious! Staring at the candle wick, Fire dancing, Enjoying the attention.   Wicked! Parasite! Don’t suck me dry, Atleast leave a piece of me behind.   Vanity! A vicious vice. A treat that fattens the parasites and leaves you scarred.   Kindness! Has it gone away? Is there some left?   A show off! Fire,…

Wipe Your Tears Away

Wipe your tears away It’s been done There is no turning back only moving forward. The past molded you The present is training you The future inspires you.   You didn’t lose anything You gained wisdom instead. Your hands were never tainted And kept your morals in check.   Rest your heart Clear your troubled…

Mahal Mo? (A blabber)

“Mahal mo?” (Do you love him/her?), a pretty stupid question to ask to someone in a relationship. But the funny thing are the responses you’ll receive from the people you will ask. One will answer right away, “Yes! Of course. Is that even a question? We’ve been together for this long and we’ve gone through…

Summer Is Over

Leaves are falling, Summer is over, Fall is coming. As the leaves are swayed away from their branches so are the memories we shared. Fall, winter, and spring will be hazy. Just a figment of your creative mind. And a somersault of emotions on my part. The most lonely months to go through though you’re…

In Another Lifetime

I’ll die in your arms if that will make you happy. I’ll surround myself with thorns so no one can touch me. I’ll hide my face in the dark so nobody else will look at me. If that makes you happy, I’ll do it gladly. The pain in your eyes when I’m with someone else…

Single and 30

Just when I thought that I am satisfied with what is happening in my life, I’m loving my job, I’ve got wonderful employers, my family is doing great, and I am happy until- I am reminded that I am single and 30. My friend and I recently talked and she is sulking for still being…

When Both Ends of the Rainbow Meet

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow doesn’t always brings happiness. Sometimes it showers you with loneliness and sprinkles of sorrow. It takes you away from the other end which ultimately brings joy and peace. There other end is where your family, friends, and people you care about. Most of the time…

Lift

The lift opened and he went inside. He pushed the L button to take him to the lobby. At the 15th floor it stopped, someone must have pressed it he thought. While fumbling his house keys, the lift opened and a lady in this red dress entered. She smiled at him and pressed L5 going…
