The Glimpse

Eyes in sudden glow
looking at your masterpiece

of meteors and mountains,
of fairytales in modern boulevards,
of silver spoons and cotton candies,

like a feeling of relief.

And you’re here.
Something I did not expect.
And I like it.

Red Maple Leaf

I love you isn’t joke.
I love you is sanity.
I love you is hopeless.
But do you?
This love is a red maple leaf.
This love is a cheerful child.
But love hurts when it isn’t loved back.
Do you?
I love you but you still don’t know.

on the surface of the ocean

the shoe that does
not fit your foot is
floating on the surface
of the ocean.
you sailed to accumulate it.
you failed to bring it home.
the squall almost wrecked
your boat.
how difficult it is.
not all strength is a victor.

gray

it hit me again.
like a gloomy afternoon.
an inevitability.
figured out. learned.
this is relapse.
i am owning my pain.
i am authoring my loneliness.
i am objecting mood swings.
a curve is always a curve.
i’ve diminished a dark embrace.

quicksand

i passed a parade
of neon loves and
tangerine paper moons.
all changed in a snap
of a finger.

the fall

i drop myself
from the pinnacle
of nostalgia.

The Man And The Wolf

Night is difficult to understand.
When darkness is a blind revelation.
Sharp teeth of truth is wilder.
The normal man might fear.
And everything has uncertainties.
Every crucial move can be traced.
Out there in hiding, is the savage wolf.

the heights of love

not these are words
to explore the great secrets
of life, but these words are
meant for someone i cannot
name, and whoever you are,
you are more than the hiding
jewel. you are the living proof
that love is not a failure but a
power with triumph over hate.
and i will love you more than anything
that appears to be good and appealing.

little heavens

you do not own a world
where only one can of tuna fish
is shared by ten or thousand mouths.

he is not a perfect engineer
for a huge project but a better
shoulder to cry on for his friends.

she is not the winner of a beauty
pageant when the reality speaks that
she is most beautiful in God’s eyes.

we come not to earn regrets.
we dwell not into a raging shelter.
we just have little heavens in our hearts.

the thoroughfare

unforeseen journeys, where life
is loved and captivated. we
have gone with or without
complaining on a diversed thoroughfare. we are the trekkers
and drivers. we are the walking
feet. we are the souls wishing,
looking, praying for miracles that
can save us from any unknown.
