In the inmost part…

I’ve been having bouts of interrupted sleep and waking up at this way too early hour of about 3am.  Yesterday it was understandable, because the other night I made the mistake of taking an early nap at 6pm I then woke up at 9 or 10pm and that was not a good idea.  

I didn’t expect that I’d wake up at this hour again, because I went to bed this time at about…10pm.  Restless, once again, in the inmost part.

Blog Breakaway – “Lunes” Ancient Poetry by Yours Truly

I surprised myself.  I rediscovered my personal online blogger journal, which of course I won’t be reviving or sharing the link of here.  I hadn’t realized I’d written so much between 2004 and 2007, the years when I first worked in post production and lived in a dinky apartment adjacent to the hum and buzz further in from the Makati B-side area.

How my dog, Jack,  feels about Mondays, or days that end in Y.

Back then when I used to write a lot more about more meaningful things (LOL) I even did some poetry to put my mind at ease.  Here’s one to reassure you that Monday does come to an end.  Haha.

LUNES

kapag sumilip ang liwanag
sa pagtulog na ni buwan
ako’y pakipot pang dumilat
bespren ko pa si unan

kamot kamot sa mata
konting hikab pang bitin
yoko pang malaman
kung wala na’ng bawat bituin

pag abot sa telepono
may konti pang dasal
na sana maaga aking bangon
kalayo pa ng almusal

ngunit sa sigaw na ng mga bata
na patakbo takbo doon
alam kong gising na ang linggo
Inaantay na ako ni sabon

Natapos din ang signal #2
sa loob ng banyong kyut
wag limutin ang mga kalat
dapat sa basura syut na syut

sa isang kwarto sa ciudad
na sa totoo’y napakaliit
ang simula ng bawat araw
nitong babaeng makulit

parang simple lang ang buhay
pero minsan sobrang hindi
alam naman natin kung bakit
lagi sa trabahong nagmamadali

kaya eto nalang ako bigla
nakaupo at napapaisip
marami palang masasabi
tungkol sa “kondo” kong masikip

Dating dati ang huling pagtula
mukhang naubusan na ng Ingles
Sa pagsusulat wala akong sawa
patapos na rin ang aking Lunes
