Along The Vast

Ocean. Space. Mind.

As If The Seas Mind

There was an ocean
invisible to thee
Its waves devoured us
for what seemed eternity

I was sent to the sulky void
under the bouldered cliff
And thou, thou only seest
the chaotic sea

For what our dreams had been
Why thou should leave me hanging?
I didn’t fear loving thee
Now I liveth in fear, drowning



There Is Only The Void

He’s finding someone to fill him up.
And in the process of searching,
he only makes himself more vulnerable to pain.
This makes him more broken.
By that he realized, he’s never gonna find someone that will fill the blanks in his life.
There is only the void now, gradually increasing in size as he lives his poor life.



A babe was alone.
And then he wasn’t.

He found toys in his crib.
He played with it.
Until the toys didn’t make
him laugh anymore.

A child was alone.
And then he wasn’t.

There were new things
to discover now.
His self, his nature, his life.
There were also games.
But he realized that the world
doesn’t always work the way he wanted it

A boy was alone.
And then he wasn’t.

Many people he have met.
Many things he have written.
Until his poetry is now all about
the people he thought that cared for him.

And then he was alone again.


Gale of the Calm Storm

That time when your eyes reflect the ocean
All the waves and the breezes tinge my skin
My tranquil sea, you are my devotion

If you take me to the deep, I’d drown in
For no trenches are dark and abysmal
When two souls are already a ruin

Make me understand, my celestial
Did the stars dive yet into the water?
If not, then we all shall be eternal

So let’s just sit on this sand with laughter
Let me dry out the ocean in your eyes
Then our souls will mend, now, and hereafter

Paint me with your cold lips and emotion
For you are the color of the ocean


When the Hue is Gone

Just kill me tonight, take away my pain
If you don’t mean to stay and give your life
My darling, all I need is your red rain

I don’t mean to slay you and cause a strife
No, my lips are just dry and need dousing
Maybe I’d make them blue by some dull knife

Because that’s how I feel when you’re fleeing
I’ll make the sky watch you turn into wine
Oh, will the stars ever be forgiving?

Hear me, see me, and give me all the signs
Then you shall be free from all the darkness
While I look in the mirror, the divine

After that I’ll realize that again,
I took all my colors but not the pain


Blood and Wine

We have been exiled by the moon and stars
We have been painted black and white and gray
The sharp cold winds of the night gave us scars

Wounds and broken skin, they needed to stay
So we’re the ones who tried to forget them
By drowning ourselves and keeping away

From all the blues and the hues we breathe in
Isn’t it just normal to stay insane?
But what a shame, the dark is a mayhem

Oh tell me, what was it you told me then
That made my eyes search for the dark places
I forgot all of it, I was in pain

We have been given the night and its fire
It’s a pity we became so afar


Wala Na Ang Mga Ulap, Hindi Ba?

Tumingin ka sa kalawakan
at nakita mo ang
napakaraming bituin.

Walang mga ulap sa langit,
ngunit hindi ibig-sabihin
ay wala na ring
panganib na darating.

Ngayong gabi ba?
Hindi mo alam,
walang sinuman.

Ang alam mo lang,
at ang madaming tao
sa likod ng mga pintuan,
ay ang gabi ay mapayapa.

Ngunit iba na
ang kinang ng mga tala.
Iba na ang mukha
ng dating maaliwalas na buwan.

Puti ang ilaw
sa iyong tahanan.
Pula na ang paa
ng mga ilaw dagitab.

Tahimik, sobrang tahimik.
Narinig mo ba iyon?
Marahil ay hindi,
dahil pinili mong manahimik.

Ikaw ay nakahiga.
Sila rin naman,
nakahandusay, naghihintay.
Ano ang nangyari sa kanila?

Tumingin kasi sila sa langit.
Nakita ang mga bituin.
Hindi lang nila alam na
darating ang ulap sa kanila.

Dala nito ang ulan ng
at panghuhusga.

Bubuhos ang ulan
sa ating lahat.
Pagkatapos ay tatanungin mo ang sarili,
“Wala na ang mga ulap, hindi ba?”

Ngunit hindi.
Nakatingin ka lamang kasi
sa itaas, sa kalawakan.
Hindi mo naisip na tingnan
ang ibaba, ang kalupaan,
pati na rin ang iyong isipan.


Hopeful Transition

She can’t help but to cry
in the morning,
in the afternoon,
in the evening.
But the day isn’t all about
sadness and fear

There are still
the dawn,
the twilight,
the dusk.
And these will remind you
that the day,
no matter how hard it was,
will eventually end.

Just think that
the moon,
the sun,
the stars,
are always there for you.
People that look at the
same side like you do.

You are never alone.


A Foggy Vision

Your eyes are
the universe.

They are as round
as the moon,
and as black
as the night sky.

Like the stars
they are glistening.
But the void is emerging
as I stare at them.

Tell me,
what it is that
your eyes are longing for?

Because mine are
craving for your smile.
I need to look into your eyes,
my universe,
my star in the night sky.
