Help! Can Anybody Hear Me?


Adventurous as she was, she walked further and further from her friends
They have agreed to hike the Black Forest and other places at the weekends
Looking at all the exotic plants and trees, she didn’t noticed she’s getting lost
And that she’s moving around going back and forth and the paths crisscrossed
By the time it was getting dark, she didn’t know what to do, how to get help
She bumped into something mossy and spooky, that’s when she uttered a yelp
Only silence in that eerie place, she’s imagining a lot of different scenario
Will she be killed by bears, will she die like a saint, this is what she foreknow
She waits; such tight corner she has entered and she doesn’t seem to get out
“Help! Can anybody hear me?” she wish for someone to help her find her route

Fright Night – Daily Prompt

What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?


To be out in the dark on my own…
It was a gloomy fright night
Dark, terrifying, mysterious of a night
Zombies abound with their gruesome faces
A cackle from the witch as the moon disappeared
Eerie feeling as the tombstones growled and opened
And they all started waking up and wandering about
The eve of the Halloween and that was what I was scared of

#SoCS Sept 19/15 – “route/root”


Hello everyone! Time to get rooted again, after being away for quite a while. I think it’s time I put down some roots. Go back to routines, especially the route to work and so on.

Speaking of which, I ordered some stuff, has the delivery routes of Amazon being diverted? Despite the length of my approach to it, the question, at root, is quite a short one. Anyone who disagrees can go and get rooted.

The idea had taken root in my mind. I wanted to do something. Him Indoors disagrees and we had a row. “Oh, go root your boots,” I said storming off. All lines of communication which were normally routed through speaking, letters and phones, were now all blocked. We’ll both take alternate routes to reach some compromise. Oh well, I’m sure this tiff won’t last. Soon, we’ll go kiss and make up.

That’s it folks, nice talking to all of you. Have a smashing weekend. Cheers for now, Ladylee x

If it’s goodbye
Then let’s do it right
I have no regrets
Thanks for being part of my life
You made me happy, you made me sad
You made me care, you made me cry
Listen, can you hear that?
It’s my heart, smashing into pieces
I know it will take some time
But one day, it will be alright
For now, let us part as friends
And leave some beautiful memories
Look after yourself
One day we’ll meet again….

paalam na po
wala akong pinagsisisihan
salamat sa pagiging bahagi ng buhay ko
pinaligaya mo ako, pinaiyak
naririnig mo ba?
ang puso ko, nadudurog
tutulong ang panahon para makalimot
siguro balang araw
sa ngayon maghihiwalay tayong magkaibigan
ang magagandang ala-ala ay mananatiling akin
ingat ka lagi
siguro balang araw, magkikita muli tayo


I am here, you are there
Miles apart, half of the world
We have to cross the seas and lands
We have to endure the storms coming
You are there, so far away, unreachable
I say this, you say that, misunderstanding
Hard to communicate, different opinions
Upsetting one another even not intentionally
Causing pain in the heart and soul, shattering
Over the mountains, through seven seas
Enduring the pain, winter, spring, autumn
Summer comes, is there a flicker of hope?
Can we overcome the hurdles, the storm?
I don’t know, I really don’t know…

nandito ako, nandiyan ka
ang layo natin, kalahati ng mundo
kailangang lakbayin ang dagat
kailangang daanan ang bagyo
nandiyan ka, malayo, mahirap maabot
nasabi ko yan, nasabi mo eto
hindi nagkaintindihan
iba’t ibang opinyon
nasasaktan ang isa’t isa
kahit hindi sinasadya
nagiging sanhi ng sakit sa puso at kaluluwa
sa pag-akyat ng bundok
at sa paglakbay ng pitong dagat
walang maliw ang sakit
taglamig, tagsibol, tag-lagas
tag-init ay dumating
may kisap ba ng pag-asa?
pwede ba tayong magtagumpay
sa mga hadlang, sa bagyo?
hindi ko alam, hindi ko talaga alam

Disconnected – Write Now! and Wordle 179

Wordle 179 – give, crossed, old, live, searching, heart, gold, mind, expression, keep, ocean, miner


It was impossible in this day and age not to keep in touch
It has direct bearing on the rest of the story only insomuch
And yet she felt completely disconnected to this world
Like a boat lurching about as the sail was unfurled
Her heart was gold and wanted to give more
No one ready to share some emotive outpour
Always searching for ways to cross the ocean
They’d rather have connection which were barren
Finding ways to express her feelings and emotion
No one seemed to listen and they were all deafen
Keeping faith in living her old life like it was
What a sad and unsatisfying life’s denouements
And like a miner in an abandoned mine, she was alone
The fireplaces were stone with bluestone hearthstone
No one there to keep her company, all busy with work
All with their hectic schoolwork, teamwork and fieldwork

Things I Want To Say To An Ex – 30 Day Blog Challenge and Wordle 119

Wordle 119 – rain, scarce, strength, crows, vegetation, revisited, one, cells, wove, eroded, rooted, last

Note: this is purely hypothetical, as I don’t have an ex…


you’ve eroded your own vegetation
with scarce strength and rain
not nurturing what should have been
the crows kept revisiting the place
weaving some false hope and gloom
rooted on despair, doubt and anguish
last time you promised something
you didn’t keep the promise
cells kepts on moving about
don’t know where to go
I thought you were the one
But it wasn’t meant to be

‘Hello’ FFF6

2 different stories for “Hello”


Oh love why are you so elusive?
What force of nature made me see you?
Your alabaster face among the crowd
Your eyes shining like diamonds
The way you walk, so elegant
I was going up and you down
On a cable car on top of the Alps
I could have said “Hello”
You could have seen me
You could have answered “Hi”
And that could be a start of us
Of friendship that might last
Instead of dreaming here alone
An alternative of “hello” is “goodbye”


She was just coming out of the shop when she bumped into him.

“Oh hello there!” he greeted her. At first, she didn’t recognize him.

“Oh, hi, how are you?” she remembered who he was.

“I’ve just bought a present for my sister, remember her?”

“Of course, I do. How can I forget her? Is it her birthday?”

“It’s their anniversary, actually… ”

Awkward silence… “anyway, got to dash…”

“OK, bye for now.” And they walked back in different directions.

“How can I forget his sister – she stole my husband,” she mused.

Sadness – Photo Challenge #65 and Wordle 181

Wordle 181 – name, connected, sheets, broken, signs, poem, vital, sense, away, speech, goblets, strips

– Paulix8
– Paulix8

In a land of sadness, broken dreams are made
Which strip away any vital connection
And life was gravely portrayed
His name no longer mentioned

Of empty sheets and promises
No sense in carrying on
When everything is aimless
You’ve been conned and he’s gone

When poems are so melancholic
His name no longer part of your speech
Life could be mysterious and cryptic
Acceptance could be beseeched

While firmly grasping the goblet by the stem
You used to be happy and carefree
He could no longer be condemned
You just have to accept that you’re free

Cheating on People – 30 Day Blog Challenge and Wordle 189

Wordle 189 – harvest, splendour, secular, able, rattle, breeze, skin, bent gaze, gathering, scattered, plain

2015 006

My secular attitude to cheating – please don’t
You can’t flaunt it, and forever you’ll be haunt
It just rattles your brain and you won’t be able to sleep
Bending rules is quite cheap and you’ll end up with weep
Will keep you gazing at the ceiling with scattered thoughts
And end up with head full of eccentric ideas of crackpots
It’s plain to see, it’s not worth all the glory and splendour
It’s not even honourable or dignified, being a cross bearer
You harvest what you sow so just enjoy the cool breeze
You won’t displease anyone and your mind will be at ease
Good for your skin thus gather your strength to be good
Perhaps one day they’ll give you your knighthood
What’s good for the goose is also good for the gander
You asked me about cheating and that’s my answer
