To Its Knees

And when she smiles

The world falls to its knees

And everything else bows down

The Smile

And in the summer, when gardens bloom

I recall the smile that captured my heart

I’ve been to dark places

But I never entertained them

Each time they utter “the word”,

I slip further down the pit.

Darkness!

Darkness engulfed me

But I refuse to be taken by the demons that tempt me

I refuse!

I’m still struggling

And I still hate myself for being weak

But I won’t let the darkness take me

I will never let it take me

It will never take me

He said to wait

But never said for how long

I said I’d forget

In time

And yet, here I am

I know the answer

But no one understands

They see me as lonely

Even when I’m truly fine.

They think I need to have a significant other

When all I need is space

And myself.

I don’t need to answer them

Because I know the answer

And I alone understand why.

They ask

And I questioned myself.

I wondered what’s wrong with me

I wondered what others may have that I don’t

I wondered

Had self doubt

Felt lonely

I wanted to get away from everyone

I felt ridiculed

I was hurt

They question me…

Wilted

I would have accepted him

Just as he was

With all the flaws

Imperfections

And quirkiness

And if he gave me a wilted rose

I would have taken it in a heartbeat

From Afar

I loved him from afar

Tracing his features, drawing it in the air.

I took note of those gorgeous eyes that at one moment can be so calm

And the next, might spell trouble.

His natural smile and contagious laugh that instantly makes everything fine.

His hair, rugged or kept, makes him no less handsome.

.

And then there’s his voice

Smooth, soothing, calm, gentle.

Oh that voice!

I love the way he talks too.

Intelligent, friendly, sometimes awkward

But always a gentleman when he speaks.

Never wanting to hurt or say something bad to others.

.

He is the complete package as others would often say

For me, he is a man straight out of a romantic novel I’ve read sometime before.

And though I can only love him from afar,

I know this feeling is anything but fiction.

Anonymity

No one sees

No one knows

Gain the popularity

But keep the anonymity.

.

All the fame

All the attention

Become a celebrity

But still keeping the anonymity.

Imong dagway ang ako makita

Inig piyong ug buka niining akong mga mata.

Sa damgo ug sa pagmata

Ikaw pirmi ang gipangita.

Hinaot imong masayran

Ang pagbati nga di kabayran.

Ug hinaot ang akong dagway

Mao sad ang imong pangitaon kanunay.

Your face is what I see

When these eyes are closed as well as when they are open.

In dreams and upon waking

I look only for you.

I’m hoping you would know

This unfathomable love.

And that it is my face

That you seek for all the time.
