Love Letter 2003

Poem By Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao

I tried to write a poem for you tonight
To encapsulate the feelings of joy
Elevated to heavens eyes
Gazing into a windowsill
On the streets of life.
But when pen hit paper
All was written in one line,
Punctuated in three words,
In the essence of one verb
That told a story yet to be written.
“I Love You”

Fallowed by blank lines on paper.
A romantic writers block
Any seasoned poet could not perfect.
A sheet of paper with a hole in it
Where my pen repetitively
touched down and lifted,
unable to materialize the word
to a poem already written to perfection
to hit your eyes, ears,
and tips of tongues
rolling out’
“I Love You”

Three words,
Three syllables,
Three exhales of breath
Formed into sound.
May heaven have the vocal cords to relay this to you
My joy, my happiness, my other half
“I Love You”

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

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
