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: IG: chuapandaaa

The Owl & The Raven

A curious Raven flew in the midnight dreary

Caught his eye, was a snowy white Owl that looks weary

The Raven was captured by the sadness trapped in her eyes

Until he sang a couple of lullabies

The Owl was healed by this sweet emotion

Soon they became each other’s devotion

How pure and sacred is their dwelling place

And together moonbeams they chase

But one night, The Raven didn’t fly to the woods

The Owl waited and worried he was bruised

She collected eggs and nestling of other birds

But The Raven didn’t come back, she is now out of words

Until she turned her head toward the trunk of the tree

And falls through the moonbeams that they once kissed thee


Little Mermaid

Deep into the ocean lies an enchanting mermaid
She is delighted, for today is her birthday

Her only wish is to go to the dry lands
And one day be with a Prince waiting for her on the sand

She dreamt of this handsome boy
Knowing that he will bring her joy

But realizing he doesn’t possess a fishtail
A sacrifice she’s going to make….

Swimming through the inky cave of the Sea Witch
In exchange of her sweet hymns
She gave her a potion that would switch her fishtail to limbs

Off she goes leaving with pain and exhilaration
Now the Prince is her only obligation

They met, eye to eye
The Prince fell for her eyes as blue as the sky

Days, weeks, months past by…
Little mermaid and The Prince are on sky high

A beautiful amber ring shining on little mermaid’s hand
Then in an instant everything went black
The Sea Witch grinning while holding the head of the Prince behind her back…

Alice in Wonderland

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
Singing and pretending I’m with a marching band

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
Wondering where paradise is, can someone give me a hand?

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
Following a white rabbit down an eerie hole, I don’t quite understand…

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
Waiting for me is a madman that wears a tall black hat

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
Eating cake and drinking tea, for happiness I demand!

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
A broad fixed grinned cat appears when I’m stuck in the shifting sands

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
The King and Queen of Hearts leading me back to the heedless land

Am I Alice in Wonderland?
“Time to wake up!” Another reality to withstand…


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…


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…


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!


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
