Not A Cindarella Story

Poem By Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao

Our eyes connect
through a sea of bouncing souls.
Everyone fades from existence
as she illuminates the room
of dark clouds and raging hearts.
I rub my eyes in question,
'Have I witness divinity
or the bottom of the bottle? '.
I inch closer and closer
As she waits patiently smiling,
Knowing I come with words of diplomacy.
But as she brung eternity in a minute,
she vanishes in a second.
Leaving me stranded under the night sky
amongst peers with no names to match elegance.
The clock strikes twelve
and Cinderella leaves no glass slippers
to end this story with a kiss.
but as the day starts a new,
so does a life time of questions.

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
