Life is a puzzle; we are the clues, and God is the answer.

Hearse of My Death


You were the promise that enticed

My soul to fly across the

Vast sky of cloudlessness

Toward forgetfulness;

Along landscaped fantasies.


You were the smile that lured

My spirit to swim across the

The vast ocean of weightlessness

Toward unrestrained waves

Of freely floating dreams.


I hugged the fleeting ecstasy

Of your warm embrace.

I basked in the ephemeral music

Of your haughty grace.

Because I lived for the thrill

Of staring at your hazy gaze.


But now, as you drag slowly by

In this procession of mistakes

I wake up from my trance

And finally see you as you are:

The lie that seized my spirit;

The hearse that carried me to my death.

    Thanks so much, Ashley.

    Oh, I am glad. Hope to see more of you in my blog, and in these friends blogs. Of course, in yours, too. I intend to go back there often. Like you, I love reading those kinds of post… they make me see God’s hand in their dreams, triumphs over their tribulations, in their everyday life.

    Happy blogging to us. 🙂

    And yes, please get on with your writing… I love to see more of your posts… and the book you dream of writing.

    I thought we all can relate to the poem. Us, who are humble enough to acknowledge we’ve made some mistakes. 🙂 Love you more…

    Hello Manuel. Welcome, my friend. Nice to have you here. Wanted to check out your blog, too but there’s no link. 😦 Thank you for the kind words. And yes, we need to accept our mistake and do something to correct them, if we can. 🙂

    So painful. But you know what brainteaser, once a person gets used to the cycle of loving and losing that’s when she can truly say “i’m a genuine lover!” Di ba?

    Looking at the poem from the point of view of romantic love, it really is tragic…

    Kaloka, i swear!

    But well, for most of us, it’s sometimes necessairy to stumble from one love to another… until we find the one who is right for us.

    Pero still, Sonnet, sad pa rin! Waaaaaaa!

    Sad and painful talaga:( It’s like falling off from the 40th floor of a building.
