Why I Love You
I told you that I love you. Then, you Asked me why.
He waited. He waited... But waited too long.
Come trail my love to its tracks While they still keep off rust, While they still ignore the cracks, And while they still dread the dust.
¿No tú sabes? Como de tu mano. Como el aire viene desde el mismo acto de comer. Mi lengua roza suavemente en tu palma; Dientes como labios, labios como dientes.
It's never your battle, It's never your fight. Just caught in the middle: A pawn, a knight-
She obscures my perception SHE rescinds every other thought, Resounds, like a rosary, Liquidating, mysteries into my lungs,
The days bled While I lay here murdered in my sleep Like a specter, shapeless... pointless... A dead lizard, a broken penny;
An Oven Light
Where the flesh goes, The mind follows. The body is weak.
You're not as predictable as you might think Remember when we danced in the pouring rain? Remember when you played with my hair like it was some black fire you wanted to put out (or pull out) ?
Chanson de L'adieu
Paalam bayan, Pag-unlad mo'y aking inaasahan Alaala kita hanggang magkalapit muli Magsasama tayong nakangiti.

Nothing wro-o-o-o-ng Nothing wro-o-o-o-ng I lock all my doors
Wars inside my head Hound and globe As if they are important, as if They are real, as if

Why I Love You
I told you that
I love you.
Asked me why.
For I hadn't
Really thought of the reason
Until now, so
You'll have to excuse me
For a while as
I go back to
When it all started...
I realize that
My eyes weren't
The ones that
Saw you that day,
But my heart.
I think it's clear
Why I love you:
You are my Venus,
The one I worship and love and more.
Hear, my heart beats out:
'It's-true, it's-true, it's-true, ...'!
