Bisyo

Picture1Hindi ako naninigarilyo.
Lalong hindi ako lasingero.
Sa sugal – hindi ako mahilig.
Hindi rin ako adik.

Iisa lang ang aking bisyo…

Ikaw!

Bakit hindi kita pagsawaan?
Hindi makalimutan.
Parang bisyo…
Kay hirap iwasan.

Para kang putahe ng ulam,
Na nang aking matikman –
Lalo akong nagutom.
Tubig na nang aking mainom,
Hindi natighaw
Ang aking uhaw.

Swabe kang magmahal.
Kung ika’y humalik –
Ubod ng tamis.
Kay higpit mong yumakap
Ang tama mo’y kay sarap.

Para kang alak,
Kay sarap mong tunggain.
Gustong-gusto kong sa iyo malasing.
Para kang sigarilyong kay sarap hithitin.

Para kang damo.
Kay tindi mong tumama.
Parang bato.
Delikado.
Mahal.
Bawal.

Okay lang na makulong.
Basta’t bisig mo ang rehas.

Susugal ako sa iyo.
Sige –
Hala!
Puso ko’y balasahin mo na.

Sigurista ka ba?
Ako?
Oo!
Walang katalo-talo!
Sino man kasi ang mahalin mo…
Tiyak panalo.

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
