Darkness

darkness-hd-wallpapers

 

Behind

this smile

is a

sadness

so deep,

a pain

so raw

even shadows

stay away;

behind

this laugh

is a

secret

well hidden,

a resentment

so smouldering

even hell

rejects it.

Swim

with me

in these

murky waters;

wallow

in the

mud,

for everyone

has their

skeletons,

everyone

has their

tales

of woe.

 

 

E-book Version! ^_^

Hello everyone! How have you been? I know it’s been a while, more on that later 😉

Despite the absence, I have finally made an e-book version of UNMASKED! Yehey! 😀 😀 😀 The available formats are: epub, mobi, pdf, lrf, pdb, txt, and html. Do check it out at Smashwords.com. I’ll be making an e-book version for the Kindle as well  so please watch out for that ^_^

How?

How can

you explain

a loneliness,

a sadness

so pervasive

that

no words

can describe?

When

all that is left

is a hole

while

everything around

is a bustle

of activity?

How can you

explain

anguish, grief,

and strife

when

the war being waged

is within?

When all that

is left

is a pit

while

everything around

is

a merry celebration

how

can you explain

shadows –

overwhelming emptiness

when

I can’t even

explain myself?

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.

OUT SOON! 

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 ^_^

Remember Me

This is an old poem that was published in my college paper, Chi-Rho, back in 2002 (I changed a stanza though) ^_^

Remember me
when
the leaves
begin to fall
and
you have
nowhere else to go
Remember me
when
birds
fail to sing
and
joy
can not be found
Remember me
when darkness
envelops the land
and
monsters
terrorize your mind
Remember me
most of all
when
the earth
sings again
and that
my love
helped conquer it all.
