What I believe about God is the most important thing about me. - A.W. Tozer
March 30, 2020
 

You broke my heart
That morning you said
You won’t let anyone
Hurt me.
You didn’t understand
That it is you
Who’s poised to abandon
Me; and shatter my heart
With a simple goodbye
While you go your own
Way to marry another.
“You’re not a lady,”
You told me
When I gave you my all.
You promised me nothing
And yet I still gave you
My bruised soul.
And then you smiled.
Your one-sided smile
Which brought thrill
To my being.
And I touched your face,
Memorizing it.
Making sure I remember
The face—
The handsome face
Of my feckless warrior.
My guardian.
The keeper of my heart
Who wanted nothing of me
Except the kind of surrender
That others pay for.
I have no dignity.
I...

JUST LOVE

Calm down, dear heart.
I am here to take your fright
Of being abandoned
Of being betrayed
Of being the object
Of squandered promise of
Fidelity.


Calm down, little bird.
Let me charm your
Frozen heart, warm it
Up with cuddle and
Delights. Let me
Care for you.
Be soft in my arms
For I’ll protect you
Tonight.


Are you not tired?
Of taking yourself
So stiffly. So afraid;
That if you bend, you
Will lose your sanity.
Stay by my side
Walk by me.
Let me take your burdens
Completely.


Do you feel safe
Now? Here besides me.
I care not if your hair
Flies madly with the wind;
Or that your brows wrinkle
As you think about things
So seriously.
Take my hand, sweet.
...

MADE WITH LOVE

I guess this is what love is
A small glance
A backward hello
A passing goodbye
A secret smile
An elusive hands on hands
A touch of fingers as you pass by
A wink that happened after a laugh
A secret understanding that no one understands
A softly spoken yes
A tearful no and a heartbreak
A maybe and I'll be back
A promise not kept
And a promise never spoken
Over the years

Adding
And adding
On top of one another
Until that not so special day crept
Over your shoulder
Catching you unawares
Creeping into your heart
Undetected
Until this terrible muscle lurches
And misses a beat
And you find yourself staring
And staring
And losing breath
Still staring
Until someone bump...

What should I tell you?
I hope you read this? This letter
That I have written with faith
Without humor, but full of doubt.
Should I expect that you will read this?
Or will you throw it away,
Or put on top of the chair,
There forgotten, ignored?

What I should I write here?
That I love you? I’m not sure yet.
That I miss you? Maybe.
That I hope I fall for you?
I’m already halfway there.
But I’m trying so hard
Not to fall all the way.

What should I expect from you?
Flowers? Love letters?
Or your earnest words
Telling me not to write anymore?
Or maybe write you more?
How should I react?
Sometimes, I’m afraid I would
Care too much. You, too little.

What should I imagine...

We met last spring not knowing what destiny will bring
Your mind met mine; do did our hearts become combined.
We felt a mélange of emotions that can almost sing.
A single dew tapped our lonely hearts – uninvited.

Our lives turned into a mystical labyrinth; twisting.
Spring brought levity to our souls that were battered.
And we vanquished; conquering all the pains and crying.
Another dew fell on our tamed hearts – unexpected.

Flowers came to full bloom, so did our hearts come knowing.
Brown became green; in our hearts, we felt love embedded.
Savoring the strange emotion was just like dreaming.
Spring dew came rushing down to our hearts – unabashed.

Now, the lovely cherry blos...

If I could live another life after this,
I'd still choose you
You with your faults
You with your joys
You with your sadness
I'll still hold your hand
Even when you stand so far away.
I'll still walk towards you
Even if the journey is long,
Even if the journey is too long,
And the distance is too wide.
I'll still stretch my love,
And allow you your freedom

As I wait for you to settle down.
I'd still write you letters
That takes you months to receive
Much less to read.
I'd probably wish
That you'd respond better
And faster
And way more frequent
Than you do right now.
Nevertheless, your smile
I'll still treasure.
Your voice I will always hear.
Your tears I will always ...

BE BRAVE

Stop! Stop! Stop!
Save yourself and do not fall
For that sweet trap.
Run away and call backup
Get away from here
Quickly! Quickly!
The moment you stay,
You're gonna stay for life.

Run! Run! Run!
The lines have been set,
You're only a step away
Run away and call backup
Get away from here
Quickly! Quickly!
Burn those bridges!
Burn them and escape!

You did not leave
You did not run
I gave you a chance
Just once, never again.
You are here to stay
Caught in my embrace.
Burn those bridges!
You're staying here for life!

Three years wasted.
—It’s midnight.
Years that were spent following another’s heart, another’s dreams.
—And I’m still writing on my diary.
Forfeiting the hopes and wishes I’ve always held dear.
—Writing down the dreary memories.
That I may always be with the one,
—Making myself remember.
Who made my heart skip and forget.
—For the last time…the last time.
For after this, I’ll get back to the poems.


The sonnets and verses and lines,
A mirage of cold words that were put together
To make me warm.
They do not have the heart that you do
Nor the feelings or the touch or embrace.
But they are better than you
So I’ll get back to the poems
Than still love you.


There are time...

Somebody told me today
That I must be in a good place.
That I’ve never experienced heartache;
That I don’t cry over lost,
What ifs—
That my heart doesn’t clench
At the thought of
Suspected betrayal
From someone I loved.
So much—
So much—
So much—

I laughed
Inwardly, of course.
I don’t want to ruin
The façade,
The mask,
The endless, brittle
Smiles
That you told me
I always carry.

I’m such a lady,
You said.
With a scoff,
And anger that I didn’t
Comprehend, until
You acted as if
I am a villain
That last night
When you broke me—
And my heart.
My little heart, you said.
So little,
That it could not
Contain you.
Or your love.

How arrogant!
Are you my wor...

I heard you last night
You called our house.
You called my mom.
You talked to my dad.
But you didn't ask for me.
Why?

Are you afraid
I won't want to
Talk to you?
After what you've done?
Maybe yes.
Maybe, no.
The crazy thing is
I still miss you.

I miss the way we were
Your warm touch.
Your hearty laugh,
The silly jokes
I never could decide
Whether I like or abhor.
I wish...
I wish you
Didn't do it.

You pushed me away
Farther and father
And then accused
Me of not listening
To you.
Of not supporting you.
You broke my heart.
Again and again.

I saw your furtive glances.
The hidden smiles,
Deleted messages.
The way your lips
Would incline to the left
As y...

I hope you find my soul shining
Like I see yours.
Glowing with life and laughter
A mere smile lights up the floor.
Do you know how beautiful you are?
Like snow falling slowly
On my knitted wrapped hand.
While cold wind makes my face red
And joy fills my heart.

I wish you could see from my eyes
How I see you.
Like wishes and dreams come true
Your sunlight peaks through the storm.
A pit-a-pat staccato of sighs
And you melt the darkness inside.
You’re a wonder you know.
Come a little closer and make me
Warmer.

I pray we’ll always be like this
Cold outside but warm beneath.
No one sees you like this
But me.
You’re a treasure hidden, deep.
People cannot see the light I s...

Dear Readers,

I would like to make some disclaimers before I write more in here.

Some of my poems that I have and will post here are NOT all about myself.
Most of them were inspired by books I've read, events that happened around me, or by shows I've watched. Or even by people around me.

Some, like "To the Muse," was written from the perspective of a man who was inspired by someone in my past. In comparison, my first post, "To the Man I Will Marry," is a personal poem.

I cannot say which one is which when I write, but one thing is for sure, they were all written by me, and are reactions from my heart. I do hope they would touch you as the words burned me prior to my putting the...

To the muse who has broken the walls
Of the feckless and faceless love
That I have been showered with
Since the day I stepped into the ocean
Of admiration and screams and fainting spells
To the muse I offer this gift.

Confession of love from a man
Who could not touch your face or
Hold your hand in public; nor whisper
'I love you' as I should have done before.
My hours are filled, but not of you,
But in my heart I always have you.

When I step down from the plank and see
So many faces, running right and left,
Trying to commit to square history my face
They scream my name and I smile;
And then my heart breaks one more time
For I cannot be with you right now.

Sometimes I wave my hand, share ...

Write me letters.
Letters not type-written; but letters
from your pen.
Write me not promises, but of truths
you intend.
Tell me not of love ruled by the heart
But of love that sprung from it.

Write me about your life I’ve never seen.
Teach me the avenues of your soul
That I have to know before we marry.
For I do not marry for love;
But I marry because of it.
A marriage of mind, of soul–
And yes, of hearts.
Write to me.
And through your words, let me
conjure you to my memory.
From your hand, show me how two worlds
–can meet and combine.
