Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

Sweet Ruins


I flip through the rubbles

Searching for sweet stories

Left from the collapsed

Romance I once built with you.


Memories I don’t want to forget;

Moments I will always remember.


I pick up the fragments,

And like a mosaic,

Paste them in the pages

Of my mind

And bind them with my tenacious heart.


Sweet ruins

Scribbled on crampled papers

Tossed in the heap of rubbles

From our colorful past,




Is it the snow? I’m drawn to writing sad-poems again.

  2. I enjoyed this one as well. I appreciate your work here!

    Please feel free to just visit. You don’t need to sign up, though it would be excellent to have you. I want those that visit to feel as comfortable as possible. If you know of other writers that would also be interested, please feel free to pass along the message.

    As for finding time to write, I know that problem all to well. I started writing at work as a means to find time. The problem that’s developed is that I don’t feel comfortable writing at home anymore, for some reason, and now that work is busy, I find it hard to find any time to write at all. I suppose that’s what happens to people like us.

  3. Mathmission,

    Right. I’m really quite new here but I’ll try to recommend your site to people I know would be interested.

    When I was still in the Philippines, home with my parents I have the luxury of time to write. I have enough time to balance work and my true passion. But since I moved here in Chicago, living alone, I always run out of time. But I still use the little spare time I have for writing. It’s one of the things I can’t live without.

    Thanks for your valuable positive feed back of this piece.

    I wish you well.

  5. I will continue to check up here and see your new work. I’m quite familiar with Chicago. A good friend of mine has lived up there for years. I visit often. It’s a fairly nice city for its size. Thanks for passing along the word of my site. Take care, and good luck with writing! 🙂

  8. And so we save them, for we always wanted to go back to the times when love left us with happy memories. It is ours forever.

    I wish you well.
