How I Lost

She smiled

And that’s all it took

She had this seemingly innocent look

And thus he was gone from me

None Matters

The setting of the sun

Or the rising of it

None of it matters now

Now that you’ve gone

A cake, 

Soft, moist, sumptuous 

Oh my! Delicious!

I ate a slice,

Then another

A third and maybe last 

Then had another

I didn’t notice and I didn’t mean to

But the cake disappeared! 

All of a sudden

A mystery it was

It was there beautiful and mouthwatering 

And then so quickly, there were none

End of March 

You used to inspire me

And now you just annoy me

I don’t know why I tried to hold on before

It felt so tiresome, I felt so sore

The smiles you gave were temporary and fleeting 

Now I look back on our first meeting 

It only took you a couple of months to take my heart

And now, after many years of being apart

I’m glad to say it has come to an end

And I’m better now, although a little bent

Goodbye Roses

They bloomed bright and well

But they can’t last, I could tell

They were beautiful, and are still

They brought me joy once before, my happy pill

But now I see they’ve wilted

I look at them with my head tilted

Since you’ve left, the sun did too

And I say goodbye to the roses that came from you

Adlaw (Days)

Mga adlawng nilabay / Days gone

Mga adlawng lumalabay / Days to come

Hain na? / Where has it gone?

Nganong ka dali ba? / Suddenly all done?

Nitunga, nawala, ni agi / It came, disappeared, went by

Murag imong gibati, ako ang alaot niini / Like your fleeting feelings, I’m the one left to cry

Pero mao na jud na / But that’s that

Mga adlawng nawala / Days gone just like that

Wish I Told You

I love you

I just want to say

I never got the chance to really tell you.
I love you

And wished I told you sooner

So I tell the wind to tell you
I love you

It’s true

Yes, I do love you

One Step Closer Away

I walk off the edge and fall

Down I go

Falling freely

I climb to fall.
Head held high

Looking up at the clear blue sky

And as I watch you fall away

I take another step 

He Gave Me Up

I told myself it never was

Told myself he never did

Gave up hope and my feelings for him altogether

Thinking, he and I were not meant once or forever.
I told myself I was the only one who fell

The only one who felt it

But circumstances reveal something else entirely 

He loved me after all, wholeheartedly.
And circumstances became the reason why

He had to give me up and say goodbye

And All It Took…

Jump aboard let’s set sail

Off to nowhere, off to everywhere 

Take a camera, take a hat

Backpack it all and take the map

All you have to do

All that it takes

Is for you to go!
