+ State-Meant - Poem by Jordan Legaspi


You are to consume, and here after to define
In the heart, and in the state of mind

And it was –the ten years of waiting
Is gone, and it’s over
After all we’re grown ups now sweet and loving;

And it is –the another years of counting
Was used to, year after year
Besides we both knew the pain after the kissing
Though we cherish it, but still we fear;

And it will be –the ten years and the years of aiming
I have to; we both need to, therefore,
The night has to pass to separating
To keep it, to allow the fresh air;

I explained “it seems; though it has been”
And you smiled “I love you but it’s forbidden”
