Breathe

Poem By Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao

I have never met you yet I mourn your sorrows
Tears run down my cheeks as every line of your letter shreds at my being.
Flash backs play a life I was strong enough to walk away from
But never forgetting the path I once walked alone.
I once asked for others to cry for me.
Now I wish only to cry with you.
Love is of no objective,
Life is of utter importance.
Do not bear the burden alone
For I shall carry you on my back
If you fall to weak to run from the cowardly lion.
To open fields I shall bring you to run free.
Where no corners appear for you to curl up into.
Breathe for me the open air
And continue to breathe
Until father time tells this old woman to stop.
And mother earth accepts you back into her womb.
You speak sorrows but your life has yet begun.
For many years still await your forgiveness.

The Bed Of A Modern Man

Where has the quiet gone?
Aching for the mouths of bickering beast to swallow their own tongs.
Envisioning the flames of crashing cars from drivers with no respect to the human foot.

Losers Never Win

Losers never win,
dim lit existence
showing up at heavens door
banging daily yelling 'let me in',

Lay With You

As I lay here
Will you lay with me.
Nonsexual embracing of shadowed walls
blocking out the light of day unappreciated

Love Letter 2003

I tried to write a poem for you tonight
To encapsulate the feelings of joy
Elevated to heavens eyes
Gazing into a windowsill

Unhappy Ending

They called her china doll
I called her for anther round

Her eyes rolled to the cat calls

Whatever Happened To The Slow Dance?

Whatever happened to the slow dance
Two souls weaving to the music
Bodies clinched to a slow jam
Mam, may I have this dance
