Our second one. This month the genres are Romance and Changes. The winner will be chosen on the 25th. The contest does not start until the FIRST. Please be creative. And have fun. I just got this done early so I would not have to do it during the wedding. Which is the first.

Bisaya Reader (bisayareader) | 31 comments WHY?
by Joel S. Andrada Jr.


As I walk away from you
It seems the world turns blue.
I cant handle the pain I feel
Every step won't heal.

You're just by my side yesterday
Smiling and talking while we play.
But now it seems to be impossible
Time is gold, that is reasonable.

We used to hold each others hand,
We used to sing our favorite bands.
But now I cried for it would just be,
One of those thousands memories.

My Dear, I regret that only thing,
For it cost me everything.
I already wish to buy you a ring,
But the wish turns to ash, a damn thing.

You thought it was, but no it was not.
Misunderstanding is what we got.
I tried to explain the reasons,
Yet forgiveness is prison.

As I watch the moon tonight,
Your love was like a vampire bite.
Its nostalgic and very sad,
For your love those days was I only had.

As you left, your love followed,
It feels my heart was hallowed.
And I am all alone,
Solution is still unknown.

Oh,where are you now, my sunshine.
Why, did you broke this heart of mine?
My little rainbow at the sky,
Please come back and tell me, why?

Anyone want to see ME do romance?!?!
Well, here it is.

True Love

What is true love?
It's me crying myself to sleep at night.
Only because I thought our love was right.
I was wrong.
Again.
There is no such thing as true love.
Only false hopes.


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Its not the greatest but my love life is in the dumps so its hard to do Romance.

We fight and fight
We constantly argue
We constantly scream
I constantly cry

We fight for love
We argue about who loves who more
We constantly scream for the other to be in our arms
I constantly cry tears of joy, thanking God i have you

With the right person
Arguements and fights dont always have to be hate filled
They are telling each other i love you more, no i love you more, no i love you more,
There is no wrong and right in love it just...Is.

*I loved you, Then*
I know what I need is rescue
As I plunge farther and farther away from you.
I tumble down this cascading wall
As everything around me seems to fall.
My heart is slowly crumbling apart
For the time has come for our paths to part.
My smile is now forever gone
And the same goes for my liking of dawn.
Because the sun that would rise
Only reminds me of the endless blue sky.
But now darkness is all that I can see
As the pain you have brought engulfs me
And no I cannot see the twinkling stars
I only trace my terrible scars.
Crystal tears well in my eyes
As my buried feelings for you begin to arise.
And when I think of you I feel a pang
Where my love for you once desperately clang.
My mind is still trying to understand,
Why hurting me was your demand.
How do you not see that you impair
Confusion and hurt with your love and care?
Are you waiting for me to explain
Why loving you brought me pain?
Can you not see it all has to do
With the undying love I have for you?
Your shining eyes and smile are so sweet
They make my drumming heart go offbeat.
But the last time I saw your face
My heart did not begin to race.
For what you told me then
Is what will now repeat in my mind again and again.
My heart bleeds with the love I have lost
As I learn what true love costs.
I thought we had feelings to share
But I was the only one with care.
Why did you wish for me to leave?
For I really once did believe
That you loved me as much as I did you
But I guess it just wasn’t true.
I also must ask before goodbye
Did I ever once tell you a lie?
Was I the reason you ran away?
Were you afraid, or too scared to stay?
As you walk in the opposite direction
My heart fills with unbearable rejection.
For now it is written across my heart in pen
I loved you deeply then.

This is the poem that i originally wrote for the contest.

Dark Angel

You were dying,
bleeding through your scars,
and I pulled you out.
Out of the grave
that you buried yourself in.
You were everything to me.
My air.
My hope.
My love.
You wrapped your wings around me
and whispered your love in my ear.
You were pulling me into a dream,
quietly poisoning me.
With your talons,
you ripped out my heart.
Unable to speak, unable to breathe, to weak to fight.
I'm falling.
Falling into a grave.
The grave that I pulled you from
only for you to bury me instead.

message 15: by Tristram (new)

Tristram (tristram_garong) | 4 comments The Dying Woman

Dear stranger hear my story,
About demise and glory.
The story of that fateful day,
the day Death finally got his way.

For years I had to battle
a pain that was unbearable,
and though my body withered,
my spirit never faltered.

But then one night, a herald appeared.
He held me tightly then appealed,
"Your passing has a purpose, child,
the Maker... wants you by His side."

"Oh, angel, I'm not ready,
I'll never leave my lover weary."
The angel told me while in pain:
"One day you will meet again"

"Forgive me love, I did my best,
permit me dear, to go to rest"
My lover kissed me as he cried,
while I held him by his his side.

"You've suffered much, it's time you go,
you'll go to paradise, this I know.
Our bodies may be separated
but our hearts shall remain forever connected"

Now I was filled with reassurance,
and I waited for my deliverance.
And then I drew my final breath,
all pain ceased, and I saw Death.

I look back to that very day,
the day Death finally got his way.
My long-fought battle was now over
Death took my hand, and to the light, we crossed over.
