“The View from the Corner” – Makati, 31 August 2016

no stars
in the
night sky
too many
clouds
fly aloft
and the
neon
outshines them;
but i
know
they’re there.

no songs
no verses
lingering
in my
head tonight
as i
make my
way home
even with
the tunes
playing
in my
ears;
but i
keep them
all
in my
heart.

and lonely
though i
may be –
for now –
and i
walk alone
and you
hold your
silence –
still –
i keep
you here
within
and think
of you
with love.
