When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…

… So I lied…

I said I was happy, prosperous.

I said my melancholy was long gone.

… So I lied…

I feel a mad affliction in this cruel world-

Which causes me dis-consolation.

I feel a forceful blow in my soul-

Which cause me languish.

… So I lied…

Maybe I felt bliss when I said it!

Maybe I felt rapture when I groaned it!

Maybe I wasn’t sorry when I sensed it!

… So I lied…

I don’t know what I feel.

When I feel happy, I am truly sad.

When I am sad, I am truly desperate.

Am I complex?

I even don’t know it myself.

… So I lied…

I torture myself for the lies;

Don’t you torture me now!

I am with many excruciating sorrows.

Don’t you criticize me.

I criticized myself all the time.


… So I lied…

I lied because I wanted…

It is late at night and I am all alone.

Driving down the road.

The rain beats down on the windshield;

Pitter-patter, pitter-patter.

Windshield wipers swishing back and forth;

Symmetrical and rhythmic.

I reach forward and flip the radio.

They are playing my song.

I hum a few bars as I round the corner.

Gradually I slow down.

It appears the rain is speeding up;

Or maybe it is just the tears in my eyes!! …

… See and listen to the waves sounding.

The cresting, breaking, pounding!

A symphony of song,

amidst discords, wrong…

… Then hear the patter amongst us,

enemies, lovers, youngsters.

The melodies of life,

sad, happy, loud sounds, strife…

… Waves, eternal, from a distant past,

born anew like life’s cast!

With rise, fall, peaceful end;

and message they will send.

… Each wave doesn’t last long in glory,

like each life’s living story.

To guide it, always true,

to heaven goes through!! …

With a little twist and turn (actually a lot), I am writing this conversation that truly happened when I was in “don’t know what” grade, elementary school, between my teacher and myself. It was decades ago, so I had to use my imagination to bring it back to life. The part, “IT DEPENDS”, is exactly as I uttered…


Never understood

Why my teacher would

Laughed when I said: “It depends”,

To her question, “What is more?

“Two plus two or three plus four?”

Anytime she said that,

My friends laughed out loud!

My answer was always “It depends!”

She would angrily insist,

“Depends on what?”

My answer: “Two apples and two dirty socks

“Is less than three candies plus four shiny rocks.

“But three frowns plus two tears,

“Is less than two smiles plus two parents!”

“See teacher, ‘It all depends;’ “

And you see,

Why today to my dismay,

I can’t remember which is more;

Two plus two or three plus four!! …

An empty space in my heart,

A feeling of loneliness that never departs.

Longing for the warmth of love,

So wonderful it fits like a glove.

Knowing that my one true love will never be,

His love has been sent out to the sea,

If only he could share the love I feel in my heart,

A feeling that sets him apart from the rest.

Even though I feel like I am being put through

A certain test.

I wish I could finish this test of time,

When he finally be a true lover of mine!! …

… Have you ever watched flowers in a meadow?

Everywhere you look, there seems no sorrow.

When I am with you, I feel no pain;

Even if it where to snow, thunder and rain.

,,, My love for you, I can’t measure.

Your love for me gives me much pleasure.

Your love for me seems to surround,

For everywhere I look, you are all around.

… The scent of your cologne lingers in the room.

I see your smiling face in the moon.

I see your handsome face when flowers bloom.

Together we have a special song, a special tune.

… One day our children will be grown and gone.

Together we will dance to their wedding song.

One day they’ll find a love to treasure;

A love that will give them so much pleasure.

… You’ve helped me along through good time and bad.

When I am with you…

Close up of woman crying

Pain that lies intensely is something quite a scare.

But the evilness I grew to know.

Can’t make me to try to care.

I know the evil eyes that watch me through the night.

I’ve heard the deadly screaming.

It gives me quite a fright.

I see the blood dropping down true,

I know the pain she’s feeling now.

I have been there too.

The moon will soon turn hollow,

But I can’t keep the light.

I shall turn it back to you.

And stay here at night.

I will turn away now,

Go back to where I came.

Then You can go on living,

In your deathly evil game!! …
