Walls

Walls

who said walls don’t have ears?
they have
my silent mourners to all my fears
the sole eyewitness to all my tears
my constant ally all through these years

who said walls don’t breathe?
they do
they breathe air to my breathless lungs
my only comfortable solace place
in my distress and sadness

walls don’t crumble
walls don’t fall
easily

but

slowly
my walls are down
they are gone

liberating.

How Many More Poems
 
how many poems do I need to write
to tell you how much I love you?
I’d count from one to ten
or maybe ten over a hundred,
I don’t know,
I really can’t tell
for every time my pen bleeds
it bled more of you, and when my verses scream,
it screamed of love, love for you

how much of my creative thoughts
do I need to pour,
to tell you how much I love you?
I’d like to paint the world in blue
(for it is the perfect hue you adore)
I’d like to create a bubble for you
where you’ll never get hurt, never be blue
for every time I think of you
I think nothing but the best for you

so,

how many poems do I really need to write?
how much of my creative thoughts do I need to pour?
I don’t know
I really can’t tell

for,

each time I breathe, I breathe of you,
‘cos my love, believe me when I say
you are the air that runs
through my veins
the only air
my lungs long for
the only air
my body is familiar with

Alkansya

Alkansya (A Poetic Flash Fiction)

it’s true what they say
that love defies time
no matter how long
it will stay

that’s how i am writing
the love story so endearing
of my *lolo and *lola
a love that knows no bound

*lolo is gone, gone in heaven
and as a loving remembrance
*lola insists on telling their story
there’s just one problem ‘though

*lola is no way able to write, able to read
never been to school, never been educated
for life was hard, so one day she decided
to smash her most precious kept *alkansya

“*apo, go buy that thing you call laptop,
so you can write how your *lolo in heaven
love *lola so much”

*lolo –Filipino word for grandfather
*lola – Filipino word for grandmother
*alkansya -Filipino word for a coin bank
*apo- Filipino word for grandchild
