I Didn’t Feel Like Working

It was the end of the week

It was the end of the work month

My spirit was high but I didn’t feel like working.

.

I was in a good mood

Listened to some good tunes

I wasn’t feeling down but I didn’t feel like working.

.

I hummed along to a good beat

Last song syndrome on my mind and on repeat

My menstruation was done but I just didn’t feel like working.

.

The hours crept by and then the end of the day

My heart sang with glee as I hopped my way out of the office

Finally!

Kasing-kasing (Heart)

Been a while since I’ve written Visayan poetry or Balak. Here’s something I came up with.

————————————-

Kasing-kasing ko nag pitik

Pitik, pitik, pitik

Gikulbaan

Gikuyawan

Unsa jud ning gipamati?

.

Ulo ko nag labad

Sakit, sakit, sakit

Napasmohan

Nagutman

Wala kasabot sa gibati.

.

Kasing-kasing nag pitik

Ulo nag sakit

Mata ko gisuwawan

Gihayagan ug taman

Sa kaanyag mo.

Translation:

My heart is beating fast

Thump, thump, thump

Nervous

Scared

What is this feeling?

.

My head, aches

Aching, aching, aching

Loss of appetite

Not wanting to eat

I don’t understand what I’m feeling.

.

My heart is fastly beating

My head is aching

My eyes can hardly see

Because your beauty shines brightly.

Mine Heart

It beats fast, it beats slow

When it sees you it glows

You roll your eyes so naturally 

And I stumble and fall dangerously

It dribbles and it dangles

It clicks and it jangles

It speaks of you and the thought of you

It feels more, yes! More than you ever knew
