Cursed

Luscious vile a maiden bore,

A downright curse within the core.

Yet chance to change that stray the path

Love shall triumph that singe such wrath.

For that of dreams does not come true,

She knows the pain that must endure.

All that left remain from start,

Of a vile and twisted, wicked heart.

The poem is not my own writing. I came by chance of it from reading one of the comments of this YouTube video titled “Cursed – 2D Animated Short”. I am not sure of the title of the poem but since it was on that video, I figured to just have that as the title.

The video was enjoyable. As I often do, I scroll down the comments section. That’s when I found this poem posted by username Cedric Scorch. Link below for the YouTube video.

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.

Like Ice

Walking down the street on a cold night with you

My hands were cold and I thought yours must be too.

So I took your hand and held it tightly

But I realised almost immediately.

It was not your hands that were cold

It was your heart that was like ice, which I knew I could never hold.

Heartless

Heart once was full, now there is none.

Heart once was gold, now it’s all gone.

Heart that was neat, now all a giant mess.

Heart that had more, now is feeling less and less

To The Hearts…

That ache

That break

That still and keeps on loving

That keeps on hoping

That cried

Whose love was denied.

Cheers to the hearts that keep on mending

That continues to give joy that’s never ending.

Bugnaw (Cold)

Ang kabugnaw sa hangin

Nga mi dampi sa akong aping,

Walay sama sa kabugnaw

Sa imong kasing-kasing.

The cold wind

That brushes upon my face

Is nothing compared

To the coldness of your heart.

Flatline

And when I saw you

You left me in awe

Speechless

Breathless

My heart ran off

They tried to resuscitate me

But I have flatlined just from the sight of you

Hearts Beat

Some hearts are full

Some have lost almost all

Some hearts ache

Some hearts break

Some hearts want to no longer feel

Other hearts hurt but then learn to heal

Hearts can bend, break and fall

But hearts can also forgive and under the sun, stand tall

Don’t They Know

They say I’m lonely because I am alone

They say I haven’t tried falling in love just because I have no significant other

They say I haven’t truly had my heart broken because I’m single.

.

But don’t they know I’m at my happiest when I am alone?

Don’t they know that I’ve fallen one too many times for the wrong person?

And don’t they know that single people has had their hearts broken more often?

Beating For You

Do you hear that?

That’s my heart beating for you

unbolt me
