Say You Love Me

For convincing myself has been harder lately,
Without you near,
Distant from me lately
I need reassurance
To get myself by.

For the shadows of the past linger on,
While you’re away
I miss your embrace
The confidence it gives
To risk another try.


Caffeine Veins

Keep me awake, just one more sip
Repressing things I hide too deep
The downside has been way to steep
The nightmares I get in my sleep.

My eyes dilate, my heart beats fast
And I flip through the pages past –
The hauntings that left me aghast
And memories I wished would last.

Should I settle for just one more?
This addiction rooted to the core
Has left me longing, like before
Though biiter tastes have left me sore.

Keep me awake, just one more sip
I stop the tears I try to keep
This has dragged us way too deep
And I should grab myself some sleep.

The Guy of Sixteen

Its been three years since I wrote this poem. Actually, I decided to post it here in my WordPress site, because I started compiling my old poems from my Multiply Site, which I plan to deactivate next year.

Here goes:

I learned a lot, from the guy of sixteen
from the moment he entered my life’s silverscreen
His stories, nice, both from here and afar
While mine were daydreams and wishing upon a star

He taught me to calm, this playful heart of mine
With his corny jokes ev’rything turned out fine
Whenever I’m down, he would share his smile
And i find my afternoons seemingly worthwhile

But then there were times, I felt he was ‘cold’
Simply telling me– emotions must not hold
Because he’s not mine, yes, not mine alone
And I say this, my friends, in a contented tone.

Time would come, that he must too, go away
Like the summer sun, it must shine another day
I do not know when, I do not know how
But i am very sure to say
That this guy of sixteen became a close one to me.. today.

Status Unknown

It’s been 2 weeks since I started my schooling at Adamson University. Well, its not that I hate the place,for me to feel so down. I do have friends already. I just usually find myself wandering the school grounds, or sitting at the stairs, staring around the university grounds. Its not that I really am school-sick or just because I’m so plain dramatic.. Maybe I just ample needed the time to start writing the usual verses, just like back in high school.

Okay, so here goes. (By the way, for the first time people who would read these kinds of stuff I write, don’t infer that I’m hopelessly romantic? It makes you sound so all-knowing coz you’re right)


Ruthless, and cold down to your core

Havin’ no one to love you more

Emptiness you have in store

Has kept you crying, red eyes sore.


Seven-fold I try to hide

The bitter feelings still inside

Coz no matter how hard I cry

It’s you that always made me smile.


The days went by, yet I still amiss

That Monday night I kissed your lips

Overwhelmed, was that all this?

Or just a mem’ry saved for keeps?


He keeps me hanging, I throw a sigh

Lookin’ around from side to side

He sees someone, and now he’s high

It urges me to say goodbye.



The problem is, I would admit

To see him, I just can’t resist!

Despite being good, I can’t insist

Sweet intimacy that doesn’t exist.
