para sa friendster

Posted by vanilla on Monday, 5 October, 2009

ang profile ko, walang music.
sa page na ito, walang tunog.

ni hindi ko nga naisip maglagyan dito,
ng astig na background, yun may anime at kulay.

ang friendster ko, ang boring tignan.
ang friends ko dito, kakaunti pa lang.

pero kahit na ganyan, sigurado naman
na gwapo, matalino at mabait yun may-ari ng profile.

kaya ito ang tandaan, mga kaibigan,
wala sa astig na background at kanta yan.

kundi nasa totoong tao sa likod ng keyboard,
yun nagta-type ng mga tulang malufet,

katulad nito.

I fell in love

Posted by vanilla on Friday, 7 August, 2009

I fell in love, in a far away land,
Distance divides;
Through cables and wires, paper and boxes
My heart speaks.

I guarded, defended, dedicated
Every beat of my heart;
For her eyes alone could break the armor,
To her alone i surrender…

beauty denied

Posted by vanilla on Wednesday, 29 October, 2008

pristine, pure beauty.

but as pretty she looks in pictures, they cannot match the memory stapled to my mind.

distance may obcures the picture, yet the presence you cast can’t be forgotten…

pure, sheer, beauty.

gusto kong hawiin ang buhok mong nagladlad sa gilid ng mukha mo, tipunin ang mga hibla sa likod ng iyong tenga,

pwede ko lang sanang dampiin ng mga daliri ko ang balat mo, ang pisngi mo…

kung papayag ka lang na ikulong kita sa mga braso ko…

napakalayo mo, kilometro’t magdamag,

bakit ba kelangan ganito?

gusto ko man isigaw, wala rin silbe,

malulunod lang sa alat ng dagat ang tinig at alingawngaw…

i want to hold you, but i can’t,

and words are stupid tools to send a fool’s love,

pag-asa ko’y ilalaan sa langit, sa mga ulap,

bawat gabi, bawat dalangin, puno ng luha,

alay ko sa altar ng Panginoon ng lahat,

bawat patak, bawat kristal, bawat isa’y bituwin kong isasabit sa langit,

para sa bawat araw na lilipas na malayo ka sa piling,

hanggang sa mapagod kong magbilang ng mga araw, buwan, luha, panaginip,

di ako susuko,

di ako susuko,

di ako susuko, sa pagmamahal sa angel kong bigay ng langit.

one more song

Posted by vanilla on Thursday, 9 October, 2008

.

people outside, waiting in line,
with pockets full of change,
song titles in their mind;
but i still want to go on
listening to your song,
blinking lyrics on monitors,
feedback and microphone,
glass walls, glass corridors…

.

sing one more song,
i want to stay longer,
just one more song…

.

whichever you choose, it doesn’t matter,
every coin drop, a few minutes,
every song, another moment
of your beauty upon my senses;
‘coz the songs don’t matter,
its your charms i’m after,
moments like this comes too seldom
let the world wait, and sing one more song…

.

one more song,
there’s so much of you i want to see,
just one more song…

.

and when our pockets are empty,
our roads parted,
as i roam the streets alone,
i’ll sing one more song,
and another after that;
‘coz every song’s a minute closer
to the moment i’ll be seeing you again,
my angel…

golden ribbon

Posted by vanilla on Monday, 7 July, 2008

over your head,

a golden ribbon, over your head,

tie it around your hair,

be gentle, but be firm,

tuck the seams behind your ears,

don’t hide them, my dear,

tonight we’ll walk through carparks.

your pink sweater, my dear,

put on your pink sweater, my sweet,

hide your skin in public,

silk on cotton fabric,

don’t let rain fall on your skin;

look beyond the glass corridors,

tonight clouds hide the moonlight.

flip-flops for your feet,

you swapped shoes for flip-flops, i see,

we walk on coloured tiles,

on stairs and escalators,

on marbles, concrete,

beyond the glass doors

the carpark waits for you.

goodbye for now, my sweet,

the van have come to take you away, my dear,

no more golden ribbon,

flip-flops, pink sweater;

anyway, the plane will come tomorrow,

and i’ll be leaving soon;

i’ll catch some clouds for you.

the bookmark

Posted by vanilla on Saturday, 17 May, 2008

Sana nandyan na lang ako
Hirap pala ng malayo
Ewan ko ba, pero sana…

Relo, iikot, kalendaryo, masusunog,
May takot man, tuloy ang sugod,
Ang damdamin, pipigilan hanggang…

Pag nagkita tayo, ang hiling ko
Wala pa sanang boyfriend, (asa pa ko)
Eh sa lupet ng charms mo, imposible…

Dapat yata kalimutan na lang,
Etong nararamdaman sayo,
Malamang may boylet ka na eh…

Adik kasi ako eh, lulon sa katol,
Nandyan naman si J____,
Ligawan mo na lang yun…

Ibenta ko na kaya katawan ko,
Gawin alipin ng mga bading,
Ang datung dadating, para makauwi na me…

Wag sana ako maunahan
Sana pagdating ko, single ka pa rin,
Ang gwaponess ko sana ay mapansin…

Yehey, natapos din ang demonyong tulang ito,
Ok ba? labo ng istorya eh…

?

inspired by the song “This Ruined Puzzle” by Dashboard Confessional:

but I’ve hidden a note,
it’s pressed between pages that you’ll read if you’re so inclined.
It says, “Does he ever get the girl?”

Pano gumawa ng tula?

Posted by vanilla on Saturday, 10 May, 2008

pano gumawa ng tula?
kelangan ba may rhyme, may tugma?

yun bang mga salitang malalim,
parang yun baha sa bahay namin dati?

kelangan ba ingles, para malupet?
para muka akong graduate ng lasalle?

kelangan bang hati hati sa stanza, para madaling tignan?
para sipagin magbasa yun pupunta sa blog ko?

kelangan ba lasing ako?
para makapag isip ng matino?

kelangan bang masaya ko, dahil sa pag ibig,
para makulay at nakatutuwa ang tula ko?

o kaya naman heart broken,
para super dramatic ang dating?

eh pano kung nagpagtripan ko lang, na isulat yun naisip ko,
na walang kakwenta kwenta?

kasi nainggit ako sa blog ng iba,
na may malufet na tula, ingles pa?

samantalang ako, pag wala sa harap ng computer
o kaya kung kelan walang papel eh tsaka lang nakakaisip ng magandang tula?

tapos pagdating sa bahay nakakalimutan ko na?
< insert coin line here, kulang yun nasa isip ko eh >

lalo na pag naaalala ko yun ex ko, na sobrang ganda,
suplada nga lang…

so pano ba gumawa ng tula?
ideas? suggestions? just call me, and i’ll be there.
