I’ll keep trying. I’ll keep standing up Even when I’m falling Even further then before. I’m going to be patient. I’m going to run To the finish line. To the sun. I won’t stop. I won’t stop ‘til it hurts, And it already does. And it hurts even more When you’re not there. When you’re far away. I need you here. I need someone...
Two roads forged from oaken wood. Both are alike— both misunderstood. One name Travesty breaks on the left. The other, Misery, has fallen bereft For it has been placed on the far side of right. To head to it now would take all night, And I’ve simply no to lose. So Travesty is the one left to choose. As I head towards the mouth of the path, The oaken wood trees seemed laden...
Picture by: gokturkayan I’ve come so far and I haven’t seen The Fabled Orange Light. I’ve walked across the golden fields And even hopped a flight On silver eagle’s wings, On single towered things And I’m still waiting for the light. I’ve trekked across the mountain tops, And crossed the local valley; Searched even the deepest seas Just for a...
To kick off my December of new hobbies, I decided...
Poem: [Things Could've Been Better...]
Things could’ve been better For the both of us. We could’ve been with the one who Makes us happy; Respectively. Spend a little time with the one who Makes us smile. Build stronger bonds with the person We want. Find the right moment to go for The kiss, And, maybe, Land it for the very first time; But we didn’t. We spent time with each other And it made us happy. ...
Poem: [I See Better]
Photo by: DeviantNep I walked a winding path alone. It twisted and turned; Had red pines and blue stones. Birds would croak and toads would chirp. Turtles perched on trees, While miniscule elephants heartily burped. I found the whole scene amusing Until the moon went down. The sun’s darkness blinded me from seeing. Then I saw a sign not too far away. It glowed radiantly, ...
Poem: [October 30, 2012]
I’ve had an afternoon for reflecting. On what, you ask? Well, As I did a little Facebook surfing, I noticed how my friends Have such close relationships with others. How they have road trips, parties, and Dinners that I tend to miss out on. And I realized that most of my time Wasn’t as well spent as theirs. I realized how many of my former friends Are now distant. How those whom I used to call...
"Cheetos Cheetah" by Maqui C.
INTRO: Here’s a new one I wrote in my phone’s Notepad. Trying out a different style of writing. Hope you all like it! :) —————————————————————————————— I plunged into the chaotic grocery store sale with...
Poem: [I Jumped...]
- I jumped From the top of a hill And for a moment I felt light. I felt calm and I felt still. For an instant, I felt alive. - And I kept on falling; Falling ever so fast. It was the best feeling, But even that didn’t last. - It seemed like an hour, What, in reality, was quick. True enough, I landed hard; In an instant, felt sick. - I jumped from a hill ...
"She Cried Under The Rain" by Maqui C.
There was a storm that night she cried. She needed time for herself so she walked down the steps of her staircase and strutted towards the door with the full knowledge of the weather. She didn’t care about getting wet or sick, she just wanted to let go of her emotions under the rain. While taking steps to the garden, she took time to look up at the gloomy sky and droplets kissed her...
"In His Eyes There Was Love" by Maqui C.
To him, I was larger than others, much longer, and, probably, stronger too. He looked up at me with a little fear, but the kind of fear that’s brought about by the lack of knowledge; we had just met, after all. I guess that there was love too, but it’s hard to find out because I still can’t understand him. He looked a little confused, but he was also comfortable. Quite the...
A Friend Once Told Me...
“A boy loved a girl so much so that he proposed to her, but she declined. Even so, the boy remained happy and content with his life. A friend asked him why he was still happy and the boy simply answered,”I`m happy because I lost someone who doesn’t love me, but she lost someone who loved her.”” - C.F. That anecdote made me think...
Meant to Be? I Think Not.
- Fate: the force that people believe to be responsible for our destiny. Some say that it is the way life is going to be laid out, while some say that it is God’s plan for each person. In retrospect, people believe that it is something that is uncontrollable. Thus the saying, “if it’s meant to be, it will be,” was born. I, on the other hand, believe otherwise. I believe that fate is the outcome...
"Her Game" by Maqui C.
She sat across the table from me. Her piercing eyes just coyly analyzing my movement. Believe me, I was nervous. She could do anything she wanted with me; after all, this was her domain. I put my guard up. I didn’t want her to see that I was afraid. I didn’t want her to win. I examined her. Two beautiful eyes staring me down, a steep nose well-aligned and proportionate to her face,...
Poem: [The Road of Would]
Just a little introduction. Today (08-09-12), I had an intriguing conversation with friends about expectations. Expectations lead people to believe that no matter what the circumstance something would happen, or that one would be able to do something. The underlying modal verb of expectation is WOULD.It got me thinking, and it got me inspired to write another poem. So here it is: - One must...
Poem: [The Sun Didn't Come Out]
It’s been seventy-two and a half hours, And the sun hasn’t come out. The people all around are perplexed. “Why’s there darkness all around?” Another asks if anything was wrong; While some plead to the elders To inform them of what happened and To give the poor some shelter. For the land was too cold, dark and broken. No warmth had entered the earth. No energy, no, not even light From the stars...
"The Girl With A Sash" by Maqui
She didn’t talk. She didn’t even smile. All she did was write, and write, and write. Write about everything that happened: the events that brought her inside. It was late in the evening or early in the morning, she couldn’t tell. It was dark, though, that’s for sure. She remembered hearing sirens outside of her house along with loud stomping, like that of thousands of...
DREAM. BELIEVE. INSPIRE.
DREAM, BELIEVE, INSPIRE- Three words that has been repeatedly said, tweeted and lived out by my one of my closest friends, Khalil Joseph Nepomuceno Ramos. About four years ago, during a dinner at Resorts Worlds Manila, I remember Khalil and I talking about our dreams of becoming celebrities. We thought about how we would, one day, come to the lobby of Maxims and walk into one of the stores and...
"The Root" by Maqui C.
I can’t believe I thought that I was important in your life when I’m not. I know it was wrong for me to do so, but I just couldn’t help it. I can’t make myself believe that I don’t mean anything to you; but obviously, through the way you’re acting and seeing how you act towards others, I’m learning to face the...
Lover Dearest [07/20/12]
I’m starting to use my blog again, but instead of posting some pictures of me or those that I edited, I decided to start posting things of substance. I will start posting more of my poetry and insights regarding the significant things in my life. I do hope you read and enjoy. I would like to share a little something about a song that I recently encountered through a good friend of...
Poem: [Third of July]
I wrote this on the third of July (07-03-12), hence the title. Just felt really compelled to write during that rainy Tuesday evening. It is, by far, the longest one I’ve written. Please do read, like and reblog! Enjoy! :) Third of July The rain falls hard crashing overhead. Hear drizzling sounds; lying on my bed. A phone lights up. From eyes, water bled. Thinking of you and...
Sporting the Look
These are some of the unedited pictures that I had taken sporting my new look: Simple, Clean, Laid-back. (Photos by Vincent Marius) I usually wear grey, white or black tops since it gives a clean and simple look. Just know how to wear it and it will definitely stand out. Grey buttoned-up polo shirt from H&M, and chino pants from a thrift store. Shoes: KEDS. Proves that you don’t...
Poem: 12/28/11 (Not Just "Hot")
You’re prepossessing, very alluring. Amazingly beautiful in many ways. I really don’t know what else to say. The words I speak are out of place. You’re stunning, quite bewitching. Incredibly easy on the eyes. Elegantly well poised paired with a shy guise. You’re the first star in the night where I find my true wish. You’re the pond so beautifully marked with a...
