TANKA: Forbidden

 

We bump into each other
As if we’re total strangers
When no one’s around
Even seconds we would steal
Burn with passion, love unveiled.

 

***TANKA Poem is very similar to Haiku but it has more syllables and it uses simile, metaphor, and personification. There are five lines in a Tanka.

TANKA: Athletic

 

A man with iron fist
With a built, I could not resist
My world crumbles, my mind, twist
As soon as our eyes met
He won me over without a bet.

TANKA : Coincidence

 

He came after her
Not knowing what life has to offer.
He said this is no coincidence
True love always finds its way.
She said, his mind is in disarray.

Once In A Lifetime

He’s long gone yet his smell still lingers
I still feel his touch in my dreams
His fading footsteps as he walk away
I can’t open my mouth to beg him to stay
I cried a river that very day
Can’t stand looking at the doorway
My life fell apart yet he’s etched in my heart
Is this love more than lust?
The burning desire in our eyes
Our touch, it’s more hot than fire
Seventh heaven in an instant
Am I meant to love him from a distance?
He’s taken, I can’t stand a chance…

Irresistible

behind.jpgIn your eyes all I can see
Is fading image of me
You are not what you used to be
Acting like you never once loved me
I may be wrong, but I bet
I cannot just forget
Your stare that captured my heart
Touch that brought me warmth
Smile that outshines the sun
And kisses that made me lost my mind
How could I possibly find courage
To let go of what’s really mine?

Silver Pride

lateaAmidst the heights of all bouts
In the shadow of all doubts
Shine

When the night is more than dark
And your torn heart is more than hurt
Shine

When all they paint is black
And the path is never flat
Shine

When life tastes like a bitter pill
And it seems you could never heal
Shine

When time seems to stand still
And robbed you off your own will
Shine

Shine, for even if you’re unaware
You’re worth more than the finest pearl
So never ever see little of yourself!

Under Spell

yathoriRidiculous it may sound
I must admit it’s profound
But whenever I’m down
When I’m wearing a frown
Or alone in a town
You act more than a clown
Bring my feet on the ground
You are one of a kind
I don’t mind if I’m blind
As long as you’re by my side
With our love I take pride
It’s worth all of the ride!
