Some songs stimulate
Pleasure center of my brain
Who needs heroin?
I share a lot with this roaring repository of secrets – waves
crashing against the shore, leaving some there in open view, then pulling them
back again…. Will anybody ever know the
depth of my thoughts or the speed at which I decided to change them?
The only difference being – I long for a shore to dock my
I walk in your shoes So I may know your heartache And understand you
So excited to see my two poems published in the Philippines bases Poetry journal Marias at Sampaguitas. So thankful to the editor in chief Keana Marie Águila Labra-Asunción for publishing and supporting my work. I’m thrilled to be published alongside Wanda Deglane, Kristian Garth, the writers I totally adore.
The title of the magazine is in the dialect, Tagalog, of the Philippines, translating to “Marias and Sampaguitas,” ‘Maria’ being the christened name for a Filipina, a Filipino woman, and ‘Sampaguita’ being the national flower of the Philippines.
