Rosas

Ako ba’y bukod tanging rosas
sa iyong hardin, sinta?
Sinisipat ngunit hindi pinipitas
Hindi ka ba nagsasawa sa ligaw-tingin?

Isang haplos mo lang
sa marilag kong mga tinik,
habang-panahon ang halimuyak
sa puso mong binubuhay muli

Bar None

I took a chance,
and you replied

I flipped,
a switch turned on

I’m a light,
and everything’s clear
I’m a radio,
and our song is playing

Oh hello
where have you been all along?

I’ve tapped a well of hidden desires
and words are gushing forth
I won’t go where the flow takes me,
I’ll do better–
Be the flow and let the magic happen

Trust in the Universe again
Worth the wait for you and me

Because our love makes me want to
reach for the stars.

The night is the sea and our love is a ship,
I am not afraid of the darkness
Because you are with me and I am with you, always.
Fear is an illusion, separation a necessity
For the growth of souls trying to remember–
What we came back here for,
Every lesson we’re here to learn
To bring us a step closer to union within
and each other.
Nothing has ever been more real except–
This cord that binds us,
And we would die with the truth that we are each other’s home.

You are with me, and I am with you
Always.

I wanted to give you the stars,

let you see what I’m made of.

But in this journey I discovered

that you are also a star.

It’s just a matter of reminding you

of your essence every day.

The you you’ve lost those lonely years

we’ve been apart, wandering aimlessly

through the Universe.

The same Universe that wrote

this Divine Symphony, orchestrating

our paths to align again.

We’re not as lost as we thought we were–

That day we found home

in each other’s arms.

Feels Like Home

I am the lighthouse guiding you home.

I am the moon illuminating your buried desires, the star healing all your fears.

I am the Queen of Swords, the speaker of truths. I am the one person you couldn’t lie to.

I am the oasis in your desert of denial.

I am your secret source of sunshine, the wish fulfilling your dreams.

I am the last drop to make your cup runneth over.

I am the one you long to embrace at the end of the day.

I am your forever soulmate, the reason you will always find home. 💗🌻💗

Keepsake

Without saying anything, you knew what I meant with what I gave you.

I wanted you to keep it, tucked away somewhere safe–a precious keepsake to savor in secret, only you would know where to find it.

I wanted you to have a piece of me telling you how I feel–that I am grateful for you, that I care for you, that I do love you though you may have doubts because I have never shown you my feelings before–a time when I was so confused trying to be a good girl–to make the grade of norm, but now I know.

And I am defying everything I’ve known until now just for a chance to tell you what’s been sleeping in my heart for years.

And if we never see each other again, I just want you to know–I gave you my love in a handwritten letter. ❤

Precious

You are too precious for words sometimes

that I don’t know how to write about you

How you have always been special

and I refused to see it–

a constant low humming at the back of my mind

I’ve gotten used to for years

But was afraid to give it a name, to carve out

a space for you in my heart

Nobody would understand–

It would be the secret that exploded

but that only added fuel to the fire

quietly raging within

And you did it yourself–

You carved out your name in my heart

with impossible deeds and a love so familiar

It’s impossible to push you back to the safe corners

and pretend you were just a footnote in my saga

You are the spark that lit my history book into flames,

pushing me to write the best story of my life

*I pride myself on my inner knowing–how I trust in it fully and how it has moved me upwards, how it flows easily into me and how I wield it more than others do. But there are times when I am stumped. Days like now, I don’t know what to think and my trust on my very intuition falters. I DON’T KNOW. I don’t know what to do about this. But one thing I still know for sure: You are precious and will always be. Even despite all doubts that this can’t be happening, all thoughts that this isn’t mutual, and all efforts to not make it more than what it is…you are still stubbornly precious. That is true. And another truth: I wrote this poem for you.
