I'm in town for long
But I'm not coming home at all.
Cold wisps of air take me away
Far far away.
Where only truth exists
and everything is dead and buried.
But multiple truths make up lies,
one truth set against the other and that one against another.

The dust piles up in every corner
of this desert.
Shavings and wastes of everything
that I have believed in.
I walk and never turn back,
to the house so dimly lit.
Where the one awaits me
searches my face in the shadows
of where I used to linger.

The truth faded
into shades of uncertainties.
Grim and dead.

Trust and find
the nobility of his mind
the nobility of his life
and of his love.
the nobility of truths
he does not deny.

Believe and see
the adornment he has for thee.
Looking to great
the beauty that is your face.
Like a swift sunrise
over hilltops and bree.
Every course of skin
lies stories of care.
It bares no shame
no shadow of uncertainty.

Like the tales of old says
it stays true-
that love comes but once.
And come it has,
for your descent
and in your fall
I rise,
and fall deeper we eill.
Like the seed
that digs deep
should grow.

I am yours
forever do
love you.
You are always
on my mind
I see you clear
speaking words
truth laid bare.
Always there
on the run
to where
you always are.
Finding where
my heart races far.
To reach my love
and hold her close
feel her arms
and her breath.
And she warms
my skin, lost to the cold
of winter's harm.
She is the sun
and the fall
and its breeze.
My longing
would never seize.
I am far
from my life's end
yet so close
to its deserved glory.
Receiving grace,
and giving care.
Caring it shall be
until the end
of me.
Loving it is named.
It is
but living
with a purpose
in these long verses.

Rifting Rafts

no matter how hard they try
no matter what they say
no matter what they make you feel
no matter what they try to prove

they can never take you away.

whatever you do
whatever you make me feel
whatever the pain
i'll love you the same.

some may hurt
but never trully understand.
the way i feel for you
is so much more
than what they could comprehend.

this is how i feel.
and no one else
could ever feel the same.
i love you more
than anyone else could ever dream of.
this is true, i know
they could curse me
they could think
of the worst things of me
but this will never change:
my love.

they will say
they love you more
and that they are better than i am,
the latter could be true
but never that first part
i have the bigger heart
filled up by you.

i will pay whatever cost
just to keep you mine
and fight any fight.
i will live loving you
and die just the same.
i will have
every bit of the pain
that this love shares
and still love you more
than this heart could ever bear.

When the storm comes
and the shit falls
I'd still be there.
When everything has been said
and all that you feel has been shaken
know that I'd still love you.
And when you get used to all of this
and start thirsting for more of something else,
I'll give you more.
I'll never quit.
I'll never stay down
for so long
when my legs fails to keep me up.
I'll rely on the facts,
on the reality of your love.
I'll prove
once again
that I love you.
And I'll do it a million times over
just to keep you
just to make you happy.

Love Her

When you find that girl
who you know
you do love,
and you love her deeply,
make her yours.
Don't let her pass you by.
Because it takes a lifetime
to fall for someone,
and there's no one else
in this world
- not one person,
like her.

I wrote this about more than a year ago. I told myself that I should be man enough to tell a girl that I love her only when I meant it.And after months I wrote this, I did. I've proven to myself that I am man enough to tell someone something that I know would make me vulnerable as hell. And I am positive that I did not make a mistake. I know that if I hadn't told that to this girl, my life would find its way to certain tragedy. And now that she knows that I love her, and that I know she loves me back, our fates have been twined. Only to be led to where God takes us from here.

All this time growing up taught me a lot of things. A lot of hurt, a lot of laughs, a lot of tears due to the latter reasons. I've learned so much about love, and what it can do, and what it feels like, and what it is capable of. And I know that that is exactly what I have found in Teng.
And a lot of people who'd read this would think "That's just to cheesy." or "He doesn't know what he's talking about." or maybe even "This dude's gay to say all this.". But if this, what I am saying here, is the truth, then why should it not be said? And surely, if any man(in his right mind) who finds love to the degree of how I see it and experience it he'd say the same thing too.

I have found the girl I talked about the poem above. And I do intend to keep her for as long as she'll have me. I have lived up to now still finding myself wherever she is. Because my place is with her. And I do love her.

What Love Does

You set my heart on fire
and say words
that sound like music from a lyre.
You take every breath I take away
leading them not astray.
But straight into your arms
Where there is only love
no harm.
And I find comfort
your love never falls short.

You give me love
and care
and everything
that makes the world fair.
You take my love
and everything I give
and with it you choose to live
with me
and with all days
my heart my soul
deeply prays
you'd stay.

I'll forever love
until there's breath for you to take
in these lungs.
And with each breath drawn,
I'll sing you this song
this melody of being free
despite being a captive of love.
Everything is pure.
A sinful life
you have cured.
