Under The Table

I thought it was your leather
Chucks that beguiled me.
But when you smiled
and your braces added a little shine to it,
I found a world where you
and I could touch a star
in the middle of the night
when no one’s watching over us.
And every time I would try to catch one,
you would never let me do it myself.
Instead, you’ll stand on top of the table
so you’ll be taller, and you can snatch
the star for me,
while I’ll be waiting under that table
like a forgotten toy robot
who misses his best friend.
But that only made me realized
one thing—
even if I could stare at you all day
you will always be that distant star.
And sometimes
when you look back at me,
I would only realize how wide our universe is.
Like how our eyes discover
the faraway sun,
and how we feel its warmness
as it kisses our skins
even if it’s a thousand
miles away from us
I would still choose
to look at you.
I know that I can’t always choose
chocolates over heartaches
But I will never be afraid to touch
a star even if I know that someday
it might just explode and lose
every little things
I love about it
Until everyone forgets
about that table,
the floor,
the toy robot,
the lone stargazer,
the best friend.

A Whole New Universe

Falling in love
is like finding a whole new universe;
a universe that for once
I never knew exists.
Seeing you for the first time
gave a full shake to my sleeping universe.
I felt the clouds and planets inside
wheeled with fireworks
like kids enjoying the disco lights
for the first time.
The stars are bursting with joy
when you smile.
And whenever I hear your loud,
squeaky voice,
the planets would want to sleep
like babies enjoying
the sweetest sound of a lullaby.
Your universe,
I want to know more about it.
Like when you look at me
with your sultry eyes, I want to know
what my universe would feel.
When you kiss me
with your graceful lips, I want to know
how many times would the mad meteors rush
and shower inside my body.
And when you touch me, I want you to feel
the slightest magic my stars can bring.
I long to feel your universe.
But you would never look at me.
You would not even think about kissing me.
Falling in love
is like finding a whole new universe;
a universe that we can’t always have.
