Sitting quietly, alone

On a porch that is my heart,

Facing the grayish sky

Allowing the hands of time to come by.

I dare not blink nor even close my eyes

Should I ever let a single moment pass me by

Without my eyes seeing

How the skies will paint itself in a while

With unexpected colors

Of love and pain

Through the setting of the sun.

Manila, August 2017

I watched the sky

Until my eyes hurt

But no sunset arrived.

I  am still here

Left wondering

Sitting quietly, alone

On a porch that is my heart

Gazing at the black skies

And remember today

As the only day

That the sun refused to set,

For me.
