Mr Opposite 

We were always opposite

I liked a mug of coffee

He preferred tea

He fell in love with sunsets

While I’ve aways preferred when it rises

He had charm and talked a lot

I kept quite and observed

He was unsure of me

I was certain of him

And that was the biggest opposite we had

It’s My Choice

I am hard to understand, so better not try to

Not many can see what I can

I am considered a freak of society 

Because I choose to be single

At an age that many are already settled.
My being settled is different from most

And I know it’s hard to comprehend

My relationship status is not bounded or dictated by society

It’s just what I choose

I choose me

And others fail to see that.

About Being Single

Every single day they tell me

Tease me

And sometimes it hurts me

Because a single word can be hurtful 

When every single time you are told

As if you do not feel a single emotion 

As if you are not smart enough to understand 

Because they think being single is a disappointment 

When truth is, their single mindedness 

Is the real problem

I Could

I could tell you everything 

I could give my world

I could do anything

Like make ribbons of rainbows that twirled.
I could be riding a shooting star

Travel the galaxy

Yes! I could go far

Without making it a fallacy.
I could bend and break you

Make you bleed and beg for more

I could turn you black and blue

You won’t even get a score.
I could conjure butterflies out of thin air

I could smile sweetly

But you won’t get a share

No, you will regret me.
See I could be the love that you think I am

I could be your dream

But you don’t see that I’m a sham

See I’ve got some scheme.
I’d could be with someone but I prefer to be alone

Because I choose not to be a queen in some elses throne.

I Told The Stars

I missed you

I wanted to hug you

I wanted to just keep you close

I held my pillow and cried slowly

I whispered to the air

And I told the stars I cared

So much for you

And wished we could be together once more

I’ll Miss You For Now

I’ll miss you while you’re not here

I’ll miss our small talks and conversations

I’ll miss our laughters and our tears

I’ll miss your silly expressions.
I’ll miss our morning routine of drinking coffee 

I’ll miss your simple giggles and smile

I’ll miss you now and how I wish to be

There for you, even just for a while.
I’ll miss you until you come to my life

I’ll miss you for now.

Sincerely,

Your future wife

Sayang (What A Shame)

Sabi nila ako ay sayang

Talagang nakakapanghinayang.

Sayang kasi raw ako ay maganda

Walang boyfriend at hindi pa nag-aasawa.

Ano ang hinihintay ko?

Naghihintay ba ng milagro?

Sayang nga ba ang isang dalaga

Na walang irog ngunit masaya?

Sayang nga ba talaga ang tawag sa isang taong katulad ko?

Sayang ba dahil hindi ako katulad niya, hindi katulad mo?

Hindi ako takot mag-isa at hindi ko nakikita kung saan ang sayang

Sayang lang na hindi ninyo nakikita na ako ay masaya at hindi nanghihinayang.

======================
They say it’s a shame,

A shame and regretful.

A shame because they say I have a pretty face

But no boyfriend and not even marrying.

What am I waiting for?

Am I waiting for a miracle?

But is it really a shame that a girl such as I is still single

Single but blissful and happy?

Is it really such a shame for a person such as I?

A shame because I’m different from them, from you?

I’m not afraid to be alone and I don’t see any shame in that

It is a shame that you don’t see that I am happy and with no regrets

I’m Better Off Alone

You see I’d like to find someone to share this life we all live

But I don’t want just anyone, this love is not easy to give.

If it’s the wrong fit, then I’d rather spend my life alone

Than choose to be with the wrong one, I’d rather be left unknown.

I do not rush to things such as the matter of the heart

Because when it hurts I easily fall apart.

So if I don’t entertain your advances,

I don’t go with your pick lines or your subtle glances,

It’s because I see you as the wrong fit

And I’m better off alone than settle and just sit.

You Can’t Force Love

You can’t impose it

Or simply dispose of it

You can’t wish for it to happen

Or force it

It happens when it does and it’s a great thing when it comes your way

But how can I put this simply

In words easily understood?

Don’t force me, because if I don’t like it

I never will

He Fell

Oh my what a mess this is!

I’m playing but looks like he fell

See I’m in no hurry and so is he

But he’s dead beat serious 

While I’m just chillin’

No frillies, no butterflies 

No chills down the spine

No spark, not even a firefly
Feelings grow strong but it can fall apart

I’m sure I’ll break him when the time comes

But my goodness I wonder if he knows

How far he’s fallin’ already

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
