    Illo Friday: Ghost

      ghost from the past

    Boxed up

    I am torturing myself
    Locking up myself
    To a seclusion of frailty
    Of my own weakness;
    Of my own grief.
    I have gone
    Not knowing when to return
    If I should return
    Not knowing what’s ahead of me
    Not caring.
    I have crossed the boundaries
       Of my own feelings
    And I detest what I have done.
    What’s left of me
    Is your shadow
    Creeping my every move
    My every breath
       Stands for you
    And I have to go further
    Until your image fades
    But my thoughts I can’t compete
    I have to destroy myself,
       Before it destroys me.


    note: poem was written in May 31, 2001. illo was made today.
    strange that after reading thru my old poems, i realized that part of me was still being haunted by my past..
    it's just a case of not being affected by it negatively, and instead, learn from it.

    B&W Challenge:Bird (oiseau)

    bird, can you still run in the morning sun?
    there in your cage, are you locked up or just safe?

    can you still see the memory of your past?
    or would you rather forget what you left?

    bird, do you still recall where you've been?
    are you willing to stake out everything?

    did you once have a name, a family, a flock?
    or would you chose to let go or lock yourself up?

    bird, i know you do not
    but do you see what i see, feel what i feel?

    i am tempted to open the gate and set you free
    but i am afraid of what lies beyond
    and what's gonna happen after crossing the line?

    maybe you are too..

    i'm sorry if i can't do anything.
    i have no power to move or shape things.

    now i see, you are a bird but you cannot fly
    so am i.

    this is for this week's black and white challenge

    Photo Friday: Destruction

    seething rain

    by the distance i look over
    from the other side of the sea i stare
    awaiting for the rain's seethe
    to cleanse my being, my soul,
    to touch me and make me feel
    to awaken this numbness in me.

    as i see it coming
    and i froze as i gleam,
    locked in the trance of unknowing
    spared from the adamant dullness
    of the vast trenching sky -

    wave down to move forward
    stickled my glued feet together
    to the green earth;
    but somehow i still see
    however i close my eyes
    the devastation that i have left
    still haunts my every glint -

    now the clouds liquidifies
    and so does my psyche;
    as time has told me repeatedly
    you are your own freedom,
    you are your own wrath.

    B&W Challenge: details of the body

    (Un détails du corps)

    "Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
    Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
    Just walk beside me and be my friend."

    - Albert Camus [quotes]

    note: something simple for Black and White Challenge

    Photo Friday: Thin

    sometimes, i feel like i'm walking on thin lines
    that my tendency to fall off is very steep
    as i am no clown to be able to balance accordingly,
    clowns do not walk on electric lines.
    but if they do,
    there is always a net to catch them.

    note: a random thought when you're not yourself.
    this is my silly entry for this week's
    It's October.. so have a fun Octoberfest weekend everyone!

    trivia: unlike the Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, which held this year's feast on Sep. 16th - Oct. 3rd [read], in Manila, it's a full-month event. So, bottom's up! };-}

    uncovering what's beneath the silence

    it started with two people
    who marked their initials on sand

    camouflaged beneath the lines
    of their strenuous futile lives

    whose darkness both were only what they see
    marking the world's superficiality

    and then a brightness slipped in
    a shade that remained as a symbol

    that there is something more
    that there is something to look for

    and what they found
    was something that erased those lines

    what they found have
    placed all the darkness behind.

    note: this is the progress of both my illo for IF:Quiet and my life..

    Illo Friday: Quiet

    beneath the silence

    beneath the silent waters
    i hide
    from the muddled days that pass
    fast paced motion i can't catch
    i wash my cluttered sorrow
    untangling each strand
    dying for a fresh tomorrow
    holding on to my mind's command

    beneath the silent wind
    i float
    carrying my thoughts to somewhere
    putting down the option of running off
    hauling my dreariness to flee
    to gain satisfaction of what's enough

    beneath the hidden volatility
    i stir
    in the quiet of my own being
    nobody can shatter me
    as i unravel what's beneath
    my own existence
