Dedicated to Kristoffer Alibangbang
The dawn is breaking rapidly
like hundred light years have
passed away over the omniscient horizon,
mirroring my heart nestled into
…because I have to find the panoramic view of
life. Eyeing differently from gleaming stars, moons and
shadows of light that reflects his cherub façade,
… because I, vowed to see each butterflies and how
they undergone several epiphanies every morning, with
flowers around them, frothed in rain drops, coaxed
by the sun. Leaving me empty with my scratch papers,
lines and silenced metaphors.
…because words are just words. But he composes a bucket of
strayed fragments that I should let go of- to decipher these words
are not just words.
… maybe because , my mind just aches, overfed with this cathartic malady.
…and maybe because, I want to get cured though I know I loved to be severe.
