to you, the unrecognized.

August 5, 2008

if you woke up one Saturday and not see me,
please waste not an ounce of worry, it won’t suit me;
nor even waste your voice calling, shouting my name,
it may not reach me though, ’cause I’m gone far away.

search not for me in the woods, you won’t find me there,
or dare journey the drylands, the sea or the air;
yes, you might reach me… but to turn back, ask me not,
for this quest’s my will; that not even you can stop.

this ain’t just a favor I’m returning to you,
this flight is for YOU, and all its little steps too,
…aimed to pick up the pieces of the smiles you’ve lost,
and bring them to your lips, where all joys fit the most.

    glad to find a friend as great as you…

    and yeah, hihintayin ka namin ng buong lashingheroes!!! magpapabardyer ka!


  3. Packingshet! Tagos sa puso! Gusto kong magmura! Ang lungkot!

    Ngingiti na nga lang ako.

    (Off-Topic: Paano ang bardyer ko??? Ahuhu.)


  4. wow! ganda ng poem parekoy!

    nakakarelate ako. hehe.


  5. haay.. bakit ganun pati ako naka relate? may gusto rin akong pag alayan nito.. recent lang as in fresh.. uunti unti rin akong lalayo.. galing LV!

  8. speechless din ako ng mabasa ko itong poem na ito.

    ang galing galing pa rin at para kanino kaya ito?

    napakagandang final lines..kala ko galit ka or umalis pero napaka thoughtful pala.


  9. tara na sa simbahan pakasal na tayo. hehe

    (bigla akong gugulpihin ni sarge ano. ehehe)

    masalimuot talaga ang (pardon the term)pagmamahal. pagpaparaya, pagiintindi.. hay buti nalang gradweyt na ako sa mga bagay na yan.

    i am living my old life vicariously though your poems. bakit ba di nalang ma-freeze frame ang buhay ano?


  10. if i am to choose the top ten poems youve written so far, this will definitely be among them.

    and, in no order:

    forever roses
    sagot sa tula ni rio alma
    verses for a starbucks cup
    unfamiliar territory 1
    unfamiliar territory 3
    ang bagyo’y naisisilid pala sa bote
    alaala ng pgh
    to the man who lost the world
    habang nanonood ng pet show sa TV

    i keep printed copies of your poems in my cube wall, planning to compile them if it’s okay with you.

    @rimewire : salamat… tho nde freeverse ang tulang ito.

    @goddess : sure, nasagot mo na e. haha…


  17. merci beaucoupe, salamat with thy true concern
    how long have you known this sorrow and frown
    all I remembered eversince you flee
    dark days and longing enveloped me

    could not rhyme nor sing a sweet melody
    all my thoughts-suicidal, a stone away care-free
    so grim bizzare and absolutely ugly
    dreams turned nightmares shuddered me sweaty

    but now that you’re back one thing is in certainty
    that all the joys and happiness will grace upon me
    I’d treasure hence, your prayers and glee
    blue lips turn scarlet from thy kiss, what an ecstasy!


  18. nosebleed 😀
