My first love was writing short stories and poems, at the age of 7 years old. (and still is) I got caught up on all the tragedies of life and forgotten all about it... But now, I have combined my sadness, anger, misfortunes and whatnot to my writing. Aside from writing poems, I also have a degree in Business Economics from Far Eastern University- Makati & currently exploring the Banking & Finance Industry. I can play the piano (a bit), can sing (a little) and a sucker for novels and self-help books ( a lot). I hope that I can inspire the writer in you! <3 Enjoy my sadness!! God Bless! email: chuanicolealexandra@gmail.com IG: chuapandaaa

Water

Watching the sea form ripples of water

Touching me, until my senses won’t matter

With this shore of sorrow,

Still drained after tomorrow

Poignant emotions swimming

Take a bow, lies dripping…

Floating on egoistic desires

Where freedom and happiness are not for hire

Dive into the ocean of iniquity

Soon you’ll fall into the depth of servility

Black dress

Weave your spell for my tilted cloth

Trapped in your enchantment that is froth

Draw a pattern to fool me, Dear

I hope I wake up before your apparition’s near

Chaotic mind, tornado of feelings

A soul that seeks healing

When will this cycle end?

I’ll just trade this black dress for a faithful friend…

Rapunzel

I built a tower almost touching the sky

For no coward man can reach this high

Are you worthy of my love thee?

The only way up is my long braided hair to flee

Any man can say “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let down your hair!”

But can they grasp the dragon in me?

That’s a dare…

My only companion is my hymns

Sing along until everyone hears our sins

Just look out for the Enchantress

She can smell if you’re reckless

Climb up ’till you have my heart

Reach for me, until you have my soul’s part…

Rise

My thoughts of you is my heroine

Can’t control this addiction, like nicotine

You’re the pen and I am the paper

Scribble on me all your madness, don’t worry it’s safer

Sleeping soundly on your carpet of lies

Can’t you hear my loud cries?

Can someone smell my regret?

I’m wearing the cloak of happiness instead

Emotions always suppressed

But I promise, you won’t see me depressed

Hope is something you can’t take away

And I will rise again!

Love

What does love look like?

Love looks like…
Cooking a meal when you hate doing it
Love looks like…
Sky diving, but forgetting that you’re afraid of heights
Love looks like…
Watching an action-packed movie when you want a romantic one
Love looks like…
Walking from office to your house when you’re goddamn tired
Love looks like…
Pretending to love pistachio ice cream, when all you wanna do is desperately vomit it afterwards
Love looks like…
Knowing his Zodiac sign is not compatible to yours, but you still give it a go
Love looks like…
A cat person loving a dog person
Love looks like…
Forgiving someone who broke your favorite toy
Love looks like…
Missing someone, even if they don’t deserve you
Love looks like…
Caring for someone, even if they don’t know that you exist
Love looks like…
Sacrificing for someone’s happiness, even if the price to pay is yours

Dear Soulmate

Dear Soulmate,
It’s okay if you’re still undecided of what you want to achieve for your career path. Because you’re not alone, I feel the same way. The important thing is that you don’t give up. Also, don’t be afraid to start over again and take risks.

Dear Soulmate,
It’s okay if you don’t have a car yet. I know this would sound cheesy but, I bet walking with you would be hella fun. Plus, it would give us more time to talk about our childhood dreams, zombies, nostalgic songs and movies, zodiac signs, the first horror movie that you’ve watched, your first love… and hoping I’m your last.

Dear Soulmate,
It’s okay if we don’t know each other yet. Because, I still want to experience life by myself. I still want to excel in my chosen career. I still want to pursue my biggest dream. I want to learn how to love myself, first. So that when the right time comes, I know it will be you.

And we will both be whole…

Seasons

Winter morning came to an end

Tired souls dreamed to mend

March’s Spring came to bloom

Hearts still feel the deepest gloom

Feelings stuck in this Summer daze

This spirit longs for your warm embrace

Autumn foliage has just begun

Catch me in this earthly span…

Hindi na Sayo

Saan ako magsisimula?

Kung wala naman tayong inumpisahan…

Ginawa ko ng tubig yung kape

Oo alam ko, wala kang pake!

Wala ka din namang pake nung nalunod ako,

Sa mga salita na binitawan mo

Gaya ng “Nandito lang ako para sayo”

O yung paborito mong “Time will tell how much I love you.” g*g*!

Aminado ako at di ko pagkakaila

Na may mga panahon na pinasaya mo ako, Sinta…

Noong araw ng mga puso,

Unang beses mong pinaramdam na mahalaga ako

Mga rosas na kasing bango ng pag asa ko sayo

At mga tsokolateng kasing tamis ng mga kasinungalingan mo

Di din pala magpapahuli ang sulat kamay na binigay mo…

Ang mga nakasulat ba doon ay talagang galing sa puso?

Lalo nung unang gabi na magkasama tayo

Umamin ka na gusto mo ako

Higit pa sa kaibigan…

At alam ko eto ang laro na palagi kong gusto salihan

Kahit mga mata mo’y hindi lang nakatingin sakin,

Pero pinag pasensyahan kita at yan ang malaki kong “bakit?”

Kahit magkasama tayo ngunit ang puso mo’y iba ang hinahanap,

Pero para sakin alam kong darating ang araw na ako’y magiging iyong pangarap

Kahit nung mga panahon na pinakita mo na sakin kung sino ka talaga,

Pero tinanggap kita, hindi parin ba sapat yun? Puny*ta!

Kahit merong kumakalat na balita na meron ka nang iba,

Pero pinagtanggol kita, dahil sayo’y may natitira pang tiwala

Kahit may nakita pa akong litrato ninyo ng bago mong trip na babae,

Pero eto ako umaasang magbibigay ka ng dahilan para di ako umuwing luhaan

Kahit wala kang pake na pinagmukha mo akong tanga,

Pero wala eh, hindi mo pala talaga ako mahal… sana napansin ko agad

Kahit ilang beses mong binasag ang puso ko,

Pero eto parin ako aayusin ito at ibibigay ng buo

Kahit pinaiyak mo ako ng maraming gabi pati araw,

Pero eto ako umaasa na makakalimutan ka balang araw

Kahit isa ka na naman sa mga lalaki na napadaan lang,

Pero eto ako hindi titigil magmahal

PERO HINDI NA SAYO…
