Ten-o-Seven

Posted in poems on May 3, 2010 by reesh26

I wonder oftentimes,
what if fate gives me a second chance?
What if I have the power to undo my biggest mistake?
Will the next day morning be different as I awake?

How I hope it will.
Because all along it’s been so hard for me to deal
the pain of losing you..of missing you.
Because having you not around isn’t what I want to get used to.

It was at the seventh day of October.
The day my life has changed forever.
Your words still linger as it said ” I’m doing this not because I don’t love you any longer..
It’s just that I can’t take to bother you doing things for you which really matter.”

I felt that knotting pain grew inside me.
Was it all we would ever be?
Then you stood up and made your way to the door.
That weakened me even more.

I realized I could never give you up
not even my priorities could make what’s “OURS” stop.
And so the next second I followed you
but i came too late..there’s nothing more I could do.

It all happened right before my eyes.
So fleeting that I instantly felt so numb and got down on my knees
I ran my way towards you with my tears kept on falling
I held you in my arms with my body still trembling.

Amidst the crowd almost covering us
I let go of my sobs as if tomorrow never comes
I almost fell ill when you freed my hands then drew your last breath.
With you gone,I also lost my strength.

It’s been almost fifty years
yet I still spend sleepless nights
I still wish you’re here
I miss you so much, my dear.

I wake up the next day
realizing things seem going the wrong way
or should I say..
things used to happen this way?

My skin went unwrinkled
and every sign of old age suddenly faded.
Could it be time had answered my knock?
Did I just pull the years back?

My eyes moved around as my feet starts to wander.
Same place,same faces and the date… seventh of October.
I rushed my way feeling so dauntless more than ever.
There’s no way I will let you slip away from me again…forever.

I still felt the piercing pain just like before
but unlike to the prior, as you made your way to the door,
I clasped your hand then gently hold close your body
as I say the word I left unuttered… “SORRY”.

But as reality hits me
I woke up only to find out I’m only dreaming.
Here comes again the emptiness,
back to those same old days full of sadness.

I moved out of my room then made my way to the kitchen
just like what I always do now and then.
But to my surprise
How come it seems I’m in a wrong house?

And then I heard the door opened.
as someone sent her way in.
She came along towards me while singing.
That voice.The voice I will never get tired of thinking.

My heart almost came out of my chest
as I turned around and saw her face.
Now I can bravely face the years and left all the tracks of my tears.
Now… now that she’s here.

if only i could turn back into time.

the seat

Posted in poems on April 29, 2010 by reesh26

the tale of his unending love for her now gently unfolds..

It all started with such a quick glance
and this is how our story runs.
Me, just your ordinary guy
and you, the apple of my eye.

Supposedly, this could have been just a normal day
but each time you cross my way
and our eyes came to meet,
you’ll never know how my heart skips a beat.

How I wish I’ve got enough strength
and so much courage to get
for you to know how much I feel for you
that you’re the only one I only keep forever to.

Until fate suddenly intervenes
the one I thought would happen only in my dreams
came rushing to me
and it’s indeed so true..just so real.

you’re all alone on a seat
as I come closer to at least give you a lift
Those lonesome eyes suddenly turned to me
as I reached out then wipe your tears I will never again want to see.

Things begin to change from then on
and I promise not to ever leave you alone.
I’ll never get tired of listening to your voice on the phone
and even you’re at sleep, I won’t hang it up even until dawn.

Just when I thought everything will go on well
is when destiny made an unexpected twirl
the one who once jailed my heart is now pushing me away
then run off from me without a say.

I forced myself not to believe
I chose to be dauntless and put out a heart so brave
when all along, I feel so wounded deep inside.
Why have you gone and just easily throw all our memories behind?

I let the tears run dry
as the most awful months of my life came passing me by.
I just want you back.
Is that t0o much to ask?

I nearly felt my heart almost giving you up
but maybe time won’t let me to really stop
I came back to reminisce as I realize to where my footsteps leads me
back to the seat where you’d first met me.

And what makes my heart bounce a beat m0re
is when you gaze exactly at my eyes like an open do0r.
The one I have always been looking for all this time
is now looking intensely straight to eyes of mine.

But it all came by so fleeting
as you just wave your hand goodbye while saying
“I love you..
I really do.”

I was about to move on closer
as a friend of yours came by approaching.
She told me the news.
It weakens the hell out of me, I feel so alone..so lost.

It’s been years
but my eyes are still immersing from tears
Because after you died,
just as to my heart, no one has replaced the seat you once occupied.

It all started with such a quick glance
and this is how our story runs.
Me, just your ordinary guy
and you, the apple of my eye.

Supposedly, this could have been just a normal day
but each time you cross my way
and our eyes came to meet,
you’ll never know how my heart  skips a beat.

How I wish I’ve got enough strength
and so much courage to get
for you to know how much I feel for you
that you’re the only one I only keep forever to.

~The Shore~

Posted in poems on April 23, 2010 by reesh26

As I slowly made my way to the shore,
my mind started to drift off once more.
I remember when you were six while I’m barely just four
and the very fist time I got your glance right at our backdoor.

I was hollowed back then by an extreme sadness
when you came and gently wiped my tears with your soothing palms.
It felt as if I was the m0st fragile thing
firmly shielded with the comfort you’re bringing.

Years had gone by so fleeting
and so as far our friendship kept on sailing.
Just like the older days,
it’s you I counted on always.

Then the day I least expected came
when I realize what I felt for you was never been the same,
because I knew back then
that i can hardly wait to be.. more than just a friend.

And so I grasp every opportunity I got
just to show you how much you meant a lot.
I would gladly fight every limit
and there’s no way would I stop nor quit.

Yet, good things indeed never last..
because every dream I made for us
eventually went down and crashed.
Oh, how could be fate this so harsh?

I would phone you up
but you never called back.
I tried to put the gap closer
but you treated me just a bother.

That hurts.
So stabbing.Piercing. Intense.
Knowing that you were just alm0st next to me
yet it seemed I’m the farthest person from you.

The days went on to months,
yet it’s still you which my heart ardently haunts.
It’s still your smile which always made me so high.
and it’s still you who had all the power t0 break and make me cry.

Then came one day when your voice made me awaken,
the one that I’ve been longing for to listen
It was just a mere phone call
but I knew it would bring things into its right place to fall.

You’re peacefully parking yourself along the shore
as I silently made my way and made steps more.
I took a seat nearby
then heard you sigh.

You clasped my hand firmly,
as your tired voice whispered to me softly,
“I have loved you ever since I was six..
and I’m sorry I’ve never got the chance to freely show it just because I’m sick.”

You told me much more about everything
as my tears went on unstopping.
And when I saw your tears dropped,
it’s also when your heartbeat stopped.

The hand which awhile ago holding me tightly
is now losing its grip slowly.
And the life of the guy i have always loved from the start,
was taken away..along with my heart.

the waves came to be the only witness..

“0UR HEARTS WILL FIND ITS WAY S0MEH0W”

a guy with his girl on the day he dies..

GIRL: I wish I would never get out from this,
in a world where no one but you brings me such happiness,
a place where we could find eternal bliss,
a vast space where i could have you even for endless.

But fate seems too playful this time,
as I felt your hand slowly losing grip on mine.
And no matter how hard I tried to seize you back,
it’s still you who first gave up.

Now I’ve got to face the years
hoping this tears will soon be vanished.
This time might not be ours for now
but i know our hearts will find its way.. somehow.

BOY: No matter how I want for us to stay this way,
there will be that one day,
a day of letting our memories behind
and have someone else to find.

I’m sorry if I’ve got no enough strength to hold you tight,
but you know how i firmly wanted to keep up a fight.
This time there will be no holding back.
It’s time for me to give up.

Never be afraid to fall in love again.
Follow where your heart leads you and break down all the pain.
This time might not be ours for now
but i know our hearts will find its way..somehow.

sweet. ;))

“memories of ours”

Posted in poems on April 17, 2010 by reesh26

how does it feel to have someone you’ve known all your life
yet a simple glance to her is like sinking yourself into a blade 0f knife?
because behind those smiling eyes,
you knew that you’re never recognized.

Those years of waking up everyday having your body next t0 me
are the happiest years of my existence because with you, I found my sanctuary,
beside you is where my haven is,
just t0 hear you breathing is where I found my peace.

But everything went on really fast,
as if lots of decades hadn’t passed.
You’ve started to forget things, forget me…forget us.
In just one blink, I witnessed how your memory turned int0 dust.

A flooding sense of hurt slowly pierced my heart
as i realized..you may stay forever but we would be still like worlds apart.
I may have a glimpse of you everyday,
but you would just keep on drifting away.

You may had lost the memories of how we were back then
but I’m willing to make more as long as I can.
Remember that i love you
for I found no reason not to.

-inspired from the m0vie..”the notebook”.

Duke (reading, about Noah): "She had come back into his life like a sudden flame, blazing and streaming into his heart. Noah stayed up all night contemplating the certain agony he knew would be his if he were to lose her twice."

Young Noah: So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.

.with you gone.

with you gone.

Driving my way to the lane we once passed through
keeps my lonesome mind pull back every memory of you
from the first time our paths intertwined
till the very day when fate greedily changed its mind.

I’ve counted hours which later turned into years
along with my eyes soaked with relentless tears
with this never-ending ache i just couldn’t bear,
I yell out your name but it’s only my sob who cared.

You have tried hard not to lose grip and hold tight
and I’ve seen how painful it is to keep up your fight
but now, we come to our harsh ending.
And with you gone, i found the life in me..slowly dying.
