Death Of A Heart

bleeding_heart_by_reylia-d6nid1f

Death Of A Heart

You disarm me
The way Icarus defied reason
And dared to fly the sun
The way a moth fought the heat
To dance with the flame

Hold my hands
And my shield will crumble
Caving in to your stare
For darling, this heart beats for love
And will bleed for the same thing

I Dare You

kissing_in_the_rain_by_latoday

I Dare You

I dare you to move.
Plunge into my love and I will not resist nor will I stop you from swimming the depths of me. I will hand you the freedom to bathe in my warmth but be careful not to drown. For my love can be still as water or can come in waves.

I dare you to touch.
Wrap me in your arms and I will not fight back. I will build no solid wall so that our souls can stare right into each other and that our touch can reach beyond the skin. But do not attempt to own me for I belong to no man.

I dare you to fall.
If, by this time, you have swum my depths without drowning and you have touched this soul without owning, I dare you. There is a reason I keep a warning sign to this heart. Proceed at your own risk— you have been warned.

My Kind of Roller Coaster Ride

tumblr_ml3xped7mw1s0ai9to1_1280

I used to fear roller coaster rides—
That feeling when you’re
at the bottom of a rollercoaster
slowly ascending through the unforgiving rails
climbing to the highest peak
and your stomach flips
even before you accelerate
into nothing but a blur
I begged it to stop
but it never did
So I hated it.

But that was all before I met love.

You see, love is my kind of roller coaster ride—
Taking me up to the highest high
and down to the lowest low
swapping back and forth
making me gasp for air
scream my heart out
my stomach flips
but it’s never a blur
I begged it not to stop
and it never did
I hated it no more.

In response to dVerse’s Tuesday Poetics: What are you afraid of?

I used to fear roller coasters. Well, I guess I still do. BUT it’s the kind of fear that makes me want to try it again and again. Not sure when it started but it eventually became my favorite ride. ❤

Tending the bar for Poet’s Pub today is Mish with her chamomile tea for the jittery hearts. Check out her poignant piece, Departure. 😉

Head over here to join the fun!

DA-DU-DUM-DUM

DA-DU-DUM-DUM

Blame not the golden rays
That cloaked you in the morning light
Nor the blackbird’s hymn
In the crack of dawn
Blame not your tousled hair
And those sleepy eyes
As you wake, dreamy and languid
To the sun that shone
Blame not the cold, crisp air
Swaying the verdant greens
Nor the bittersweet aroma
Of a coffee next door
Blame not those lazy smiles
And your cheery voice
Calling out my name
To me, a melodic tune
My heart pounds like a drumbeat
Thumping a DA-DU-DUM-DUM
Tamed and enchanted—
I blame it all on you.

Sa Piling Mo

Sa Piling Mo
Wayra

Langit ang gabi
Sa tuwing ika’y kasama
Sa init na ‘yong hatid
Tuwa’y walang humpay
Wala nang mahihiling pa

~English Translation~

Nights are heavenly
Whenever you’re with me
In your warmth
An eternal bliss
There’s nothing I could ask for

My world froze when I look into those eyes—
A moment I yearned to last
Until the end of time.

Ikaw ang tinatangi
Ang aking minimithi
Makita ang ‘yong ngiti
Pagod ko’y napapawi

The man of my dreams
At the sight of your smile
My weary heart’s at ease

N is for Nefelibata

Euphoric whenever you’re around
Little butterflies to me surrounds
Enthralled by the weight of your magical spell
In just one instance to you I fell.

I woke up stunned with this epiphany
That I am for you, as you are for me
Your laugh is the best sound I’ve ever heard
Ecstatic on things that we’ve talked and shared.

What can I say, you got me all tamed
I am neither crazy, nor still sane
Well, who cares! This ambiguity I don’t’ mind,
My love and yours are forever intertwined.

Jar of Kisses

Our hugs and kisses,

Sweet mem’ries;

Your hands clasped to mine.

At night I fancy

In my sleep

Fishing through my jar.

Keepsake of our love

And our smiles;

Jar of “you and I”

DAY 1: Today, I challenge you to write a lune. This is a sort of English-language haiku. While the haiku is a three-line poem with a 5-7-5 syllable count, the lune is a three-line poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count. There’s also a variant based on word-count, instead of syllable count, where the poem still has three lines, but the first line has five words, the second line has three words, and the third line has five words again.
