The Plea

feeling-hopeful

Please

remember me now

exactly

the way

I am;

calm,

collected,

sweet;

one who

plans,

someone

who

loves life.

Please

remember me now

just

the way

I am;

optimistic,

understanding,

laughing;

one

who

truly cares,

someone

who values

life.

For when

the beast

shows itself

all of this

will

be lost,

I

will be

pushed

to the

back

forced

to watch

my very self

destroyed.

August 2015 ^_^

What happens when your world is shattered from within? When you can’t run nor hide from yourself?

UNMASKED is a poetry novel that deals not just with Bipolar but generally, with the darkness in all of us. When it overwhelms us, threatens to consume us, and how we fight to regain ourselves. It is a story of loss, hope, and survival.

Final Update :D

Hi!!! My poetry novel book is finally going to be sent to the printers on June 6. I am delighted to be entering this phase as my book has gone into limbo for the past months. If it has legs, it has left me already for being ignored. I literally put it in the backseat. 😛 But now I am back and overflowing with ideas. 😀 😀 😀 First, the book cover. I asked my friend Sho Labaco at repolyo.wordpress.com to draw my book cover as he is the only artist I have known for years who already knew my sometimes (?) vicious mood swings. Hence, I know I can be as demanding & temperamental as only I can be and he won’t take offense. Hahaha 😛 Here is the first concept for my book cover: First Concept of Book Cover Second concept: Cow book cover The final book cover: Book Cover Aside from this, I have also talked to Pillow Me (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pillow-Me/143156795733234) and asked them to make a cow pillow that I will be giving out to my first 100 readers. I also contacted PhotoPrints (http://www.photoprintsph.com/) for my personalized Magnetic Bookmarks that I will be giving away with my book. On Sunday, I am planning to go to uEDGE SM North Edsa (http://www.uedge.ph/) to have my author business cards made. I have spent many a sleepless nights on this topic but according to some articles I read, authors do need business cards so off I go to uEDGE. I can hardly wait for June 6, especially when my book is ready to be marketed. Until then, there will be at least two more updates ^_^

The Cottage

In a cottage
near
a lake
where
the meadow
is
pregnant with flowers
and
green, green grass
there
I will
find
the real me.

In a cottage
near
a lake
where
the birds
freely fly
and
sing melodies
so sweet
there
I will
find
my peace.

In this cottage
near
a lake
where
the mountains
stand
tall and proud
and
the white picket fence
shines with the sun
I
have found
a
world of calm
as I tread
on its
cobblestone path.

In this cottage
near
a lake
where
love abounds
and
laughter rings true
I
have found
the
heart of me.
