“You (All of You)”

You showed me how to be grateful with having the best friend ever. You taught me how to wake up the sleeping child in me. You showed me how to be a better brotha, one who can rate a girl’s You taught me how to embrace the corniness and the craziness only I can be.Continue reading ““You (All of You)””

“Lady in the Yellow Dress”

One, two, three, four, before I lost interest, lady in the yellow dress caught my drowsy eyes. She spoke eloquently (at least that’s how it looked from afar), she had a neat side braid and an ability to turn my head a full 360. Five, six, seven, eight, until I slowly turned to stone, ladyContinue reading ““Lady in the Yellow Dress””

New Poems over @ We Are A Website!

It’s always such a gratifying experience to have my poems put out into the world, ready to go on their own journeys and become friends with the rest of the world, but what’s more fun is knowing that your work and their stories have become a part of a bigger organism, a whole kaleidoscope ofContinue reading “New Poems over @ We Are A Website!”

What’s Your Talent: “30 Days Dry” by Eric Shoemaker

I was still in my impromptu return to the Philippines when Kat Lahr, creative director of Thought Collection Publishing and someone whose vibes resonate with mine, emailed me, wondering if I’d be interested in editing and reviewing the first entry to the 30 Days… Challenge, with the summary of the poetry book floating around words likeContinue reading “What’s Your Talent: “30 Days Dry” by Eric Shoemaker”

Bournemouth Bound (Beachside)

The concept of enjoying your time anywhere ultimately depends on the company, in my opinion. Even if my barkada‘s initial plan of spending three days in Bournemouth via hotel turned to sixteen hours and a subsequent sleepover back in London, if that means just being with some of the brightest souls in the world, then it’llContinue reading “Bournemouth Bound (Beachside)”

Lost in London now out on iBooks!

It’s been a while since I posted anything! Hi guys! It’s also been quite a long summer for me. What with my work, being out with friends, watching Miss Saigon (blog entry on that soon!) and just plain ol’ writing, I’m glad to say that my 2013 poetry book Lost in London is now availableContinue reading “Lost in London now out on iBooks!”

“Music and Poetry”

Guess the best metaphor to use here is a pop song, or is that a simile? Imagery? Well, anyway, it’s like being in one of them ones with you, too cheesy to listen to but you don’t want to use earphones to hide it, the kind with a constant dedication to be faithful to youContinue reading ““Music and Poetry””

“Dear Friend”

So much for I love you if fate isn’t willing to listen, willing to help me with the ride. Guess loving someone wrong left me undone. Remember when you asked me about you because you wanted her? I had to laugh and remind you that she was never really mine. She’s so damn crazy aboutContinue reading ““Dear Friend””

“Lost (Or No Longer)”

The car window isn’t enough, its transparent body holds no candle to the rush of ghosts that would wrap themselves on me whenever I’d pass by the old houses that once belonged to my second/third/fourth family. It all comes gushing back, feelings I cannot contain with tightly cupped hands, as I struggle a thought popsContinue reading ““Lost (Or No Longer)””
