Golden

The flickering golden face watched Luce, She wanted to continue focus more. Luce wasn’t ready, Her body dropped in confusion. She didn’t understand. Still emerging, She recognized the golden sea, Devoured by her song.

Ghosts

Actually this is blackout poetry. Sometimes we can’s leave the past behind…

The Wanderer

This poem is dedicated to a friend of mine who suffered depression years ago. Through this poem, I want everyone to realize that there is a difference between being depressed and being sad. Telling them to “get it over with” or to “stop being emotional” will not help; what they need is to know that we are here for them.Throughout our lives, there are times wherein we have to make huge decisions and sometimes, our judgment can be clouded by our emotions.

Hope you enjoy!

Falling in love with someone is easy — finding out whether or not you’re destined to be together, however, is hard. And it’s so inexplicably painful when you find out you can’t be with that person. This poem is about loving someone who is unattainable, expressed through the metaphorical use of a girl looking at the sunset over the ocean. This is my attempt at writing a Neruda-esque piece!
