Nameless

You can’t find the words to describe me.

I am known and unknown to you.

I am a familiar face and a stranger at the same time.

You think you know me but you are doubtful.

You look for the slightest touch of familiarity but it’s not there.

You stare and wonder and ask yourself

“Who is she?”

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.

Am I Ugly?

They look, they stare

They wonder, they dare

They ask me why I’m still single

It sometimes makes me feel worthless, hence, I don’t mingle

They talk, they whisper

Words can hurt, they can blister

And even without a word I feel they’re saying smugly

You’re still single because you’re ugly

Make up But Don’t Fake up

I looked at myself in the mirror and saw someone else

She looked pretty with all the colors painted on her face

Her hair looked well kept

She was almost perfect.
People couldn’t believe it was her

Their reaction said it all

But despite loving how she looked that night

She still prefers to keep it simple and light.
She loved looking pretty outside 

But still prefers the beauty that is found within

The Boy (Will Never Be Mine)

I’ve fallen for someone beyond my reach

I am non existent to him

I know better and should practice what I preach.

But how do you get over someone who was never yours?

The craziness within is slowly taking its course.

I sing his songs and see his face, imagining things that would never be

I know it is crazy,

I know this will go away……eventually

For now, I will let my imagination run wild until I am set free
