@poetrybymich ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’›first in the series of poems from the creative writing workshop i conducted last May 6.

have you ever loved the right person at a wrong time?

here is a fresher take on the overly used theme “we have the right love at the wrong time๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ’”

Hindi Patas Ang Mundo
(Hermy Tuerco, CSA-B, 2022)

Sadyang hindi patas ang mundo
Pinaglapit man ang ating mga puso,
Landas ko naman sa iyo ay pinaglayo
Tayo ma’y itinadhana, pero di naman pinagtagpo.

Ikaw ang ilaw, sa madilim kung pananaw
Ikaw ang bunyag, sa puso kung bihag
Ang pagtanggi ng puso sayo’y malalim
Ngunit iyong pagsuyo ay mataimtim.

The world is just not fair
Even if our hearts are brought closer
My path to you has been diverted
We are destined, but not brought together.

You are the light, in my dark  perspective
You are the truth in my captive heart.
The rejection of your heart is deep
But your flattery is solemn.

    That a trick of fate too. To throw together two people who arenโ€™t fated for each other

    PS…I’ve tried to learn from every relationship I’ve been in (with friends, coworkers, neighbors, people I dated in my youth, love-interests, etc.)…appreciate the good of the person while they are in my life, work on me being the bestest version of me, growing, maturing, etc. ๐Ÿ™‚ That has served me very well! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love can be, and often is, a random spin of the wheel of fortune. I’m thinking that what might have been is much less important than what is… Still our fickle hearts wonder “what if?”
