Darkness (The Monster)

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

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.

Akong Dagway (My Face)

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.
