The Sullen Place

Poem By Kay Barcelon

Outside the city is a paradise
The sunsets are amazing
Lakes and falls are enchanting
Hills and mountains are green
White ocean beaches are welcoming
Shallow or deep diving is serene
The corals under the waters vibrant

The city of Manila is crowded
Left no room for plants or trees
The streets were never empty
Loud stereos are echoing from a distant
Parents screaming and the children are noisy
Too much noise the city never sleeps
Hardly notice the birds chirp

Like a person with schizophrenia
Philippines has too many faces
Elegance and richness for some
Starvation and homelessness for few
Being away is nice and grand
But not able to go back is sad
The place is definitely love and hate

I wake up to a beautiful morning
Each time your image comes to mind

' Every Part Of Me '

These brown eyes
Are searching for you
My lips
Longing to kiss you

- Lost -

Your wretched broken spirit
Floating in the sea of disarray
Drifting rapt in a dark secret
Streaming baffled life astray

- Color Me Not -

Why do you wish to be a chameleon
And camouflaged with the rest
You are beautiful just as you are
And you do not need to blend

- Moon Fusion -

Two past midnight
a very bright light awakened me.
Seeing this luminous light,
I walked towards my picture window to see…

- We Belong -

My dearest I miss you
I long to hear the beat of your heart
to listen to the rhythm of your soul
they tell me we belong
