Mahirap magtago ng sarili at ng relasyon. Minsan hindi pwedeng magsama, dahil baka may makakita. Hindi naman ako kerida, at ganun din siya. Minsan, sa pag-iisa, wala ka na lang magawa kundi ang magsulat. Na sana...
I want to set fire to the oceans. And they will cease to keep us apart.
To unfurl a map of the world and fold it. Until you are close enough to touch.
And heat time inside a furnace. Until we can bend it to our will.
Perhaps shape it into a circle. Whole, perfect, unending.
To prove no numbers are prime. For nothing deserves solitude.
Write of William's star-crossed lovers. Awakened before they fled.
That star we both wished on. Is but residual light from what is long gone.
But a collapsed sun gains power. And remembers its promise.
To take the sky and pour it in a jar. For me to give to you.
Wake beside you at first light. And wonder at the colors of each sunset.
Twilight descends. I poke holes at its dark fabric.
We at the far side of the moon await. The light to shine on its face.
