Pathetic attempt at poetry

No. I'm not looking for love.
Call me selfish.
I am.
I don't wanna fall in love.
Not yet, not so soon.

Dahil ayoko ko nang mag emo.
Di bale nang nag-iisa.
May ka-holding hands? Hindi ako naiingit.
May kahalikan? Hindi ako naiingit.
May kayakap? Hindi ako naiingit.
PDA? Hindi ako naiingit.

Masaya akong single.

Doesn't make sense? Sorry na, hindi ako makata.
Walang rhyme, wala lang. hehehe.

Got this tag from ice.
Here’s the rule:

1. Write a poem or an inspiring line based on a photo of your choice. This photo can be your own, or someone else’s. (If the picture is not yours, please ask permission from the owner when you post it, or better yet, provide only the link to the picture that inspired you, without posting it.)


2. Your poem or inspiring line may be of any length, and any genre. It can be humorous, sentimental, heart-warming, whatever. You may write in Ilokano, English or Filipino.


3. Post your inspiring line in your blog and in the comment section of this page (or just a link to your post so we could go and check it there). For poetry submissions, please indicate if you wish your piece to be posted in Bilingual Pen as an article submission.

4. The goal of this game is to get us to write, and express our thoughts and emotions.

I'm tagging:

Kris Jasper

onatdonuts said...

mantakin mo nga naman, at least nailabas mo ang iyong mga agam-agam sa pamamagitan ng isang tula. hehe

TheScud said...

happiness is relative, methinks. there are some who feel more comfortable (and happy) if they're in a relationship. yung iba naman ayaw ng complications kaya single muna. hehe.

hats off sa mga singles! :-)
