I was never the fruit you wanted
to bear. I was never the fruit that
you wanted to pick.
Now the thought of you makes me angry.
Nothing ever remains unknown. We know this.
Sooner or later, the winds will change with us,
and us with it.
He’d seen it glint earlier
when a shaft of light hit
the open box.
They’re hanging like baubles
full moon shapes in the snow
of light and shade
And it will take bigger scales
to weigh out the quantities
we will need to survive.
I have to celebrate, devour, and create
So many things in the longest but shortest period of calendar-time—
Decide, plan, purchase, and make my Halloween costume;
Gazing on King Henry's corpse did we stand,
Not a solider stood saluting, as his farewell shot,
Satisfied faces stood there, no rose in the hand.
"Please do come to my home,"
Whispered the lonely spider
To anyone who came by.
They paint magenta over black skies
or pale blue over white clouds.
Some painters dab their brushes
in magenta skies others in clouds.
Believe in the miracles you can make.
Don’t believe what they tell you.
Sana sa susunod ay ako nalang, ako nalang iyong magugustuhan mo. Ako na’lang iyong hanggang sa dulo ay makakasama mo. Hindi lang mula sa pagkamusmos kundi hanggang sa ikaw ay maging Lolo. Ako na’lang iyong pipiliin ng iyong puso. Ako lang ang siyang laging nasa tabi mo hanggang sa magwakas ating mundo.
Maybe the moon is looking down at me
Convincing to be radiant as I can be
Asking me to never take a rest
And keep on doing my best
