Marifosque

I write with quill and ink

Sleep

Sleepless, I held you in my arm,

My dark prince of twisted innocence,

Eyes cast upon me prevail without harm,

As we lay with the scent of rose incense

Yet beside me you rose again to leave,

Deity I wish to conquer eludes me,

I wept as the door closes, my heart heave,

Alone I ponder in my wake and I see

You left teaching me about sleeping,

That the stronger wins by hard choice,

The stubborn fool I am, empty and weeping,

Lost through excuses and denied by your voice

Pining

DSCN6292

Let me live, nestled in the bosom of your heart,
Let me drink in the honey of your kisses,
Let me paint our love as the greatest art,
Let me see the hazel in your eyes as the sun rises

My heart yearns the company of your soul,
And with you apart my fount doesn’t flow,
Here alone nurturing these feelings so foul,
Like the dreary clouds coming forth slow

I sit without inspiration pining your laugh,
The colors run ruddy, my tears come shed,
Apart I am nothing without my loving half,
Saddened, I bleed my heart upon my head

Untamed

I watch you sing your soul as I dance tonight

I see your glance under the soft lemon light

 Your eyes awaken in me the temptress I hide

And what you can’t, is your want to ride

 

Should I let you come closer just this one time?

I feel us beating in the rhythm of your rhyme

Exhale; you feel my breath from where you stand

When your feet brought you to where you land

 

Only inches from me, a heartbeat from me

You can’t resist a touch; you want me free

My lips moved but another called my name

I want to stay but I know you aren’t tame

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No Change

uni

I watch the moon as it grew full then wane

Better half gentle by my side we meld

I cradle you by my bosom, by my heart

Sharing diamonds in my dreams

And so I pray this day will last

 

I say no change, no change

You and I will last the longest

I say no change, no change

You and I will outlast the rest

 

Come forth the breaking of the sun

Bending us touching forward and beyond

For I see the future with you in my eyes

Let us hold hands, and we be our own comfort

And so I pray that life with you will last

 

I say no change, no change

You and I will last the longest

I say no change, no change

You and I will outlast the rest

 

The character of Master Onion

DSCN5632

Hear a story of great value,
Dying in teaching and known by few,
Story of love in days of old,
Story my heart in morals it hold

I show to you the Art of Love,
Cometh through a Filipino Dove,
In nature blessed I write it down,
Throuh my window sill it flit then sown

This story I write to you then,
From me, the Master Onion of Pen,
Shall bring to life this soul sweet tale
Friendship, Honor, Love and jug of ale

The Fifty Sheets challenge

DSCN5625Page 1

This day I challenge myself to come up with a story-poem about Love within fifty white lined sheets of a little notepad. Each page will embrace the lines fully without overflowing, along with an illustration to add to the tale. Each page will tell the story about the characters within, but the primary will be the lovers: Mariang Mais and Juan Ampalaya, and their journey of romance.

This story was inspired through Anna, a dear friend of mine who about a year ago was in a relationship. As her friend, it was my duty to tease and support her in her romantic undertakings. The idea was created as a way to make us laugh. But in the end to make her laugh as they went their separate ways.

I haven’t re-visited the idea until recently when I fell in love. It inspired me to bring the characters to the open. For this I would like to share them as an inspiration for the people who are in love, to the people who believe in love, and for the people who want to be in and stay in love.

I would also like to share this story- poem as I show to you our beautiful custom and tradition of Filipino courtship to which as rigid and old-fashioned at is sounds, is highly romantic and at the same, down-to-earth funny.

This tradition is a dying social custom in the country so before it dies completely let me share what I have learned, and let me share it’s moral values which taught me how to fall for the perfect person to love.

 

DSCN5622This is the notepad that I will be using

DSCN5624The paper is smooth, the size is convenient and it costs less, not to mention BUY FILIPINO

Pink Heart Soup

DSCN5605

Little hurts that do you ail,

I have remedy that doesn’t fail,

It’s called Pink Heart Soup, Honey,

Making it won’t cost much money.

It’s not the same as chicken soup-

Putting ’round the neck with a loop,

Flu, Stomach ache and head ache it will deter,

It’s my secret to make you feel better.

Best for kids, parents, and you my lover,

Say why? Because I love you forever,

Now prop up and take some sips,

After I’ll kiss you on the lips.

Cozy in the Cold

DSCN5604

Don’t shy away when you feel to fall,

I’m always here when you call,

For shower’s come so here we’re made,

Come close to me under this shade,

Keeping you close to me I would,

I’ll keep you cozy in the cold,

Be perfect companion under crisp rain,

I’ll hold your hand without vain

Pink

DSCN5602

Pink, the sweet color for girls,

Like the flowers in water swirls,

Now I feel like dancing slowly,

Something charming and lovely

Pink is a something when I blush,

A shade that makes you hush,

‘Happens before we kiss, you see,

Your Kryptonite being near me

Pink is our color puppy love,

Its innocence flies like a dove,

It’s Nutella in the morning,

It goes well with everything

The Cure

DSCN5587

The droplets on my head,

Like tears over what was said,

The more hurt was spoken,

The more love was broken,

You came with cool mildness,

You cured me with your kindness,

Love bloomed again, 

So stay awhile then forever remain,

I will love you like there is no tomorrow, 

For I know time is a- borrow
