Edwin Alba Empestan Poems

As I wake up one shiny and happy morning on our soft and silky bed
With the birds singing sweetly, their lovely songs and bees buzzing
On a lovely garden of colorful flowers beside our window
Winds strongly blowing the green grass smelling fresh and invigorating

Walking through the lives we tread
Mostly unknown where the final destination
Amidst the complexities of an abyss materialism
Perflexed and chagrined by the question

Ako si Juan De la Cruz malusog na isinilang
Lumaki ng husto sa alaga at aruga ng aking mga magulang
Ang tatay ko’y pangkaraniwang anluwagi at magsasaka
Ang nanay ko ay pangkaraniwang may bahay at mananahing aba’

The question how soon? begs for a simple answer
The motion is there that all goes in one direction so well
No opposing force except that all in cadence for good
No chance for a diversion of another opposite strong force

Thousand of miles, seven seas away from you
Lies my aching heart astray longing for home
Dreaming to be a huge bird to spread its wings
Freely into the oblivion of the infinite blue skies

The day has arrived when arrogance and greed will stand
Testing their might, force and power to bully a weak one
Attacking without warning killing all kinds of human on their way
Civilians, men, women, old, young and children, animals and all

A homely lady so queer so lonely but able to pretend
Pretending to be a lady for everything but wanting
Wanting on her miserable partner less life
Pretending life so full to her but walks always empty

I feel cold but when you are around I feel warm
I feel sad but with you at my side I feel animated
But that was before when you left me alone and adrift
But how could you do such a cruelty that you've left me

The year has ended (2011) a new year has to stay for awhile
A lot of guessing and feeling what the new year has to offer
Two people has to exist and will try to walk the ropes
The optimists and the pessimists will make their way to tread

You make it stop...you step up and sit besides me and push more for space
The engines goes again and your long lovely hair touches my face
So sweet the smell of your fresh hair like lovely sweet scent of flowers
Your silky white face reflects the young age of a lovely lass full of life

Challenges are always with us everyday
Unknown sometimes that you don't know
But you need not to face them yourself
Or confront them alone and struggle hardly

Those fruits, nuts, and other foods for the holiday
Symbols of hypocrisy, showiness of false affluence
A display of false belief for a new year’s abundance
A charade of false pretenses disguising generosity

The world now beholds
is not my dream,
The chaos, the turmoil
and the plague is not in my dream

We've been together since my birth
Never a moment that I miss you in my sight
Your voice is my comfort
Your touch is my security

Come let us make love together
To consummate our desire together
To release what's inside of us
That always burns like fire

Like a mean sea hag, a witch, and a Jezebel
You were at fault of your deed and it’s obvious
That you did it as if you’re the only one
That can decide things for the group

An age like dawn for all of us when we are all infants in a rock
Nothing to worry as helpless babes while the ticking of the clock
Nothing much to remember in our memory of early age
But only sweet voices of our protector nurturing us as our sage

Here they are, worn out,
tired and mentally confused
They came from the warfronts,
became experts and lovers of their guns

Affirm in yourself... in the strength you have
The mind and the physical power you have
To command your own world, each day

So alas! I found my faith gets troubled
So despair the feeling gets boggled
So confused by their outfit and weird appearances
So disturbing and confusing to my normal senses

The Best Poem Of Edwin Alba Empestan

(aaa) Another Day, Another Love And Coffee

As I wake up one shiny and happy morning on our soft and silky bed
With the birds singing sweetly, their lovely songs and bees buzzing
On a lovely garden of colorful flowers beside our window
Winds strongly blowing the green grass smelling fresh and invigorating

The sun just came out smiling and peeping our window’s curtain
Saying hello to us as its new morning coming again with great joy
While in a far distant the sound of the waves and sea gulls creates serenity
While the bees feast the nectar of flowers in our garden full of lives

My love and desire so great for you my love becomes intense and great
With strong a desire and great love for you, my heart pounds so strong
My whole body begins to tremble and shiver, my two feet begins to squirm
Now touching your side of the bed with my strong and gentle hand

There you are with your naked body wrapped in your silky soft blanket
Sleeping like a baby with your soft and delicate back touching my chest
I kiss your cheek and say 'I Love You', you moan and say I love you too
We get inside our warm blanket with our body so warm and so good

We booth shiver and make love, take turns with what our score be
So great so intense that we can no longer hear the singing of the birds
Except the pounding of our hearts and the smell of the sea in our bed
With our sounds of love and moaning for great love with each other

I feel your body so soft like a baby with great care I caress you softly
As you feel my hand touching your soft and silky skin you moan a sound
With those little helpless voice I began to caress you more saying I Love You
At last exhausted but very happy with each other we get on our side of the bed

Gasping, now we can hear again the birds singing their lovely madrigals
The bees gaily feast their nectars together with the humming birds
While the sea gulls gently going with the waves against the shores
And the sound of a coffee maker signal that it is another day for us

My friend, tis I, keep searching for that reason to write. It is sincerely something spiritual and altogether walled off from the world, but still it is always deriving, always analyzing, always inspiring the muse within you from with out. May I recommend the poet, RAINER MARIA RILKE he has influenced my poetry through his verse and his notations of reality, and I think you would enjoy his works as well.
