O maling MALIGNO
PANITIKAN na napikit
LARAWAN, la na raw
KULISAP sa kulip
GG ang ulo ng GALUNGGONG
HINUHA ni Huha
SILID-AKLATAN ka, nadilat sila
KAGAWARAN na agaw kara
SARANGGOLAng, lagas ora
BAYANI na Biya
Sumali sa pakontest, gumawa ng tula
Ayun, Timangkey, muka lang tanga!
An anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letter of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once; for example orchestra can be rearranged into carthorse. Someone who creates anagrams is called an anagrammatist. The original word or phrase is known as the subject of the anagram.
From the first and last of air you gasp
From the first beat of the heart until the last
It doesnt matter where you begin or end up
Sunset comes whether you like it or not
Take the scenic route unto you destination
Count the joys, happiness, elations
Woes and miseries makes the travel faster
And scenes are a blur and none the clearer.
- Book of Counted Bliss and Misery
Tell your stories, write your thoughts
Things in the future or what the past brought
Say what’s on your mind, not giving a damn
This is your place in this space and time
This is your throne, your castle, your kingdom
No one rules over you, but your very own wisdom
Say No, say Yes, Say anything
It doesn’t matter coz here you’re the King
Choose your personality, be what you wish
Sweet little devil, or just a plain stupid piss
A sexy temptress, with tales of pleasure
Or just the plain you, no salt no pepper
You might get some praises, some hails, some cheers
You might get a bad rep with some boos and jeers
But beauty is subjective, just as opinions vary
Have faith in what you believe, be true to your story
There are no lies here, only the truth
But what is true for one, is not true for both
Mirages are for deserts, with tricks for the eye
In here a truth, but on the outside a lie
It’s a limitless world, limitless possibilities
Whole new you with great opportunities
But at the end of day, after the truths are played
You’ll find outside is the real life you live.

Ang blogging minsan ay mahirap
Ang blogging minsan ay puro pasakit
Ang blogging ay may kakayahang
Makilala ang inyong pangalan

Last year as I was chatting with a girl friend, the topic went into love and about falling in love (she was inlove at that time but the guy doesnt seem to care that much). She said that “Love makes us poets” (she was so in love that she makes poems about the guy)… and as we continue chatting about her feelings. I was inspired to write a poem about what she said. =)
Love Makes Us Poets
Love makes us poets, making art out of words
Love makes us poets, pens mightier than swords
Love makes us poets, making emotions fly
Love makes us poets, on a natural high
Love makes us poets, the flow of thought
Love makes us poets, for the heart we sought
Love makes us poets, intellectual treasures
Love makes us poets, for emotional pleasures
Love makes us poets, feelings are written
Love makes us poets, writings are spoken
Love makes us poets, from hearts and minds
Love makes us poets, to mouths and hands
Love makes us poets, of poems and songs
Love makes us poets, by rhymes and tunes
Love makes us poets, putting sugar and sweets
Love makes us poets, on the paper sheets
Love makes us poets, of joy and sorrow
Love makes us poets, remembered tomorrow
Love makes us poets, for now forgranted
Love makes us poets, for now unwanted
Love makes us poets, the word sculptor
Love makes us poets, the idea painter
Love makes us poets, like the Greats from the past
Love makes us poets, memories of love will forever last.
As we are about to end and say our goodbyes, I sent her this poem. =)
(based on a poem i have wirtten way back in college. Lost the copy and was only able to remember some lines. I had an encounter during a few years back that made me want to write the poem again. But since I dont keep my poems, I was only able to get a few lines and just added some to suit the moment. I am sooo going to keep track of all my works now. =P)
Have i by chance met you before?
I cant remember, i cant be sure
In another time, another world?
All these things they seem so blurred.
There’s something in you that makes me wonder
You make me think, you make me ponder
I really believe that we have known each other
In the past maybe we were together.
Were you a queen, was i the drone?
Were we in love, was i alone?
Were you a princess, was i your knight?
Holding each other under the moon’s light
We shared stories, laughters and even tears
Stupid jokes, one liners, and darkness fears
During those times, i felt i was whole
Convergence of the mind, mating of the soul
But at this world and at this time
We wish im yours and your are mine
Your heart says it can, but your head cannot
Be with a guy that has a lot on his back.
The heavens crashed, the earth beneath me crumbled
And my bright sunny skies suddenly darkened
I was left wandering, alone in the dark
Dont know where to go, what way to track
I spent whole my life searching for you
It will not be easy to let you go
Love like this is hard to find
And i wil not let love leave me behind
You needed time to be apart
To reconcile the brain and heart
Will your love stay or fade away
As my love will be waiting everday?
I will be counting minutes, hours and days
Missing your company every which ways
Until comes the day somewhere in time……..
That I can be yours and you can be mine
