My classmate

Day after day I stared at you
With your angelic face magnify my eyes
Started to dream if I could make friend with you
To be acquainted and communion face to face

Even the thoughts flew so high but what if no
Our gesture normal as it is yet in veil
As if you keep your distance I don’t have the cue
But still you haunted me and I’m loosing my will

Night after night I made my plan
For the right time I know soon will come
But devil took it away using his magic wand
A spell that I don’t know what next to come

Nothing left for me time flew as easy it should be
Finally I have to decide less you’ll gone
And left me behind wondering if you can see
The difficulty of this feeling of being lonely

I am crazy I know if I will let you go
For what reason that you are here next to me
Sharing different stories but I still don’t know you
Until you go my heart still on you zzeee like a bee

So hard to speak if you’re around I am loosing my head
My heart skip a beat like a stone so hard yet so soft
But I know this will end up so soon I know it will
Our roads will part but thanks we’ve met my dear classmate

+ Philippines

This poem is dedicated to all the Filipinos all over the world


You are the pearl of the orient
paradise with a distinguish beauty
Your daughter gaily- they sing and dance
Your son valiantly- they plant the seed of love

Oh Philippines, my beloved Philippines
old days slowly no more
Your children to distant land they wonder and sigh
Leaving you unwanted- oh my mother land
Some stayed but dream of the west saying
'lash green and rich'
Others survive but looking to the east saying
'milk and honey is everywhere'
While few starts the day hoping for prosperity
as their sweat watered the land
Oh Philippines once your breast is full of milk
Like as nurturing mother
Were tame and wild seek refuge and find rest
Were our fate leads us to become one and united
To the orient seas- the different faces of Philippines
My beloved Philippines

Edmond- The Count of Monte Cristo

Man bound by the tides the journey of life
Sometimes against the waves,
be the captain of your ship
Voyage for fame but of fortune like a fate fades
Innocent thought flies but leave a deadly wound
Hit the shore to shore bringing dreams and anchor
To the day or to the night that wrapped the soul
Of a young man building a name
that so sudden oblivion for him
Like a lion cannot find home victim of human foul
But still calling honesty the only treasure he can pay
While treason at the door like a knife that soon will cut
The vow of friendship and leave their respect away
To the man willing to play- the game without warm
Oh! Yes even a friend like a brother to you can be
The reason to kill or to be killed
For sometimes life are there to kill or to die

'Edmond- The Count of Monte Cristo' was adopted from the movie 'Count of Monte Cristo' based from the novel of Alexander Dumas, Count of Monte Cristo.

After Platonic love (/)

After Platonic love

Counting the hours; waiting for the exact moment
Tick tack tick -the clock's lifeless sentiment
Pressing my ears against the noise of silence
In search of amity to comprehend that once unheeding voice
-though of the divine, but spoken with vulgarity.

Loosing the spirit against the chaise of yesteryears' pain
And another hour had passed, another defeat it seems
Laying on my bed with obscure thoughts -devious scale
Of what to attend to, neither the plea nor the promise of fill
-the malicious appetite of my flesh's pungency.

Staring at the space through its elusive differences:
Of man's nudity and of the soul's nakedness
Seeing then the guilt, thus, so consummate in appearance
Host of the fancy -coated symposium, my own designed frenzy
-the stories of reason against emotion; of godly against cruelty.

Note: The "After Platonic love" is inspired by Plato's "The Symposium", and was composed from 28 December 2009 AD. to 02 January 2010 AD.

Platonic love, in its modern popular sense, is a non-sexual affectionate relationship. A simple example of Platonic relationships is a deep, non-sexual friendship, not subject to gender pairings and including close relatives.
At the same time, this interpretation is a misunderstanding of the nature of the Platonic ideal of love which from its origin was that of a chaste but passionate love, based not on lack of erotic interest but on spiritual transmutation of the sex force, opening up vast expanses of subtler enjoyments than sex.
In its original Platonic form, this love was meant to bring the lovers closer to wisdom and the Platonic Form of Beauty. It is described in depth in Plato's Phaedrus and Symposium, where the examples given refer exclusively to the love between a man and a boy. In the Phaedrus, it is said to be a form of divine madness that is a gift from the gods, and that its proper expression is rewarded by the gods in the afterlife; in the Symposium, the method by which love takes one to the form of beauty and wisdom is detailed.
