to you, the unrecognized.

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.

Mishell said...

speechless din ako ng mabasa ko itong poem na ito.

UtakMunggo said...

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?

short-lettered-chique said...

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.

JIMG29 said...

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!
