other side

sometimes there’s too much brightness

but all you see is dark

all you crave is shade, your dim space
then look for that soft light

that maybe flicker of hope

that maybe you aren’t lost
you’ve got tears that ease what is

and that scared heart you know is spared

find the pieces as each isn’t broken
calm now my heavy breath 

oh my long sighs

we don’t need to be on the other side

goodbye pepper


it was a crowded cloud of emotions;

excitement, happiness, a grateful heart

to worrying and to suppressed grief

you switch them all off and move on

’til you forget what they were

but they all come crashing back

you give in

just another lame scribbling (i’d like to keep)

i thank god for you
every hard day is lighter
when you make me laugh
when you tell me stories

i thank god for you
it’s easier to live each day
to face each fears
to reach every dream

i thank god for you
life became more meaningful
you taught me the simplest things
the simplest important things

i thank god for you
for thinking of me and twisting what might not have been my destiny

waiting for you

at night
beside my yellow dim light
i listen to the sounds
i wait for you

to wonder
will it end, how much further
and i listen again
i wait for you

until my eyes close
i dream somewhere and hope
my heavy heart slowly beats
i still wait for you

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside | Beautiful Creatures

today i watched the movie for the second time

because i haven’t convinced my little sister to watch it and my procrastinator side just urged me to do it while eating breakfast and while cooking for tonight’s dinner too 🙂

(i’m supposed to be doing some work and other human life duties ;-P)

i have to say this movie really brought back the love for poems i had in me way back in college

nope, i do not follow or remember any poets, i just love how poems have that magical side – those lines that seem to understand what goes around INSIDE our delicate hearts [or maybe just to the very few of us 🙂 ]

the striking poem in the end was this:

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

a space

we will know it more than ever

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

and we will wait and wait in that space

what is really happening inside?

what is really happening inside?

and this hit me real real hard in the head that i googled where it came from (although the movie did imply it already i still had to search because i am hard-headed) and voila below was somewhat a full version or something and they just removed just a little part 🙂

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

a space

and even during the best moments

and the greatest times

times we will know it

we will know it more than ever

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

and we will wait and wait in that space

– Charles Bukowski (a German-born American poet, novelist and short story writer.)

and i agree so much to this that i had to blog about it, don’t i? that yes there is that space always inside our hearts that we keep waiting to be filled

so watch the movie if you haven’t yet and hopefully enjoy it the way i did

and let’s together read the the book too (because i haven’t yet hehe)

and may i attempt:  that what grows inside can grow beautifully that what goes in your mind  that what you believe in your heart it will surely surely be

and may i attempt:
that what grows inside can grow beautifully
that what goes in your mind
that what you believe in your heart
it will surely surely be
