HALIK SA PISNGI

capture (1)Hindi ko sinadya…
na labi ko’y dumampi
sa iyong pisngi.

Hay!
Parang bulak
Kay lambot
Kay bango… parang rosas.

At tuhod ko’y nanginig.
Katinua’y parang bula… naglaho.

Aking inulit.
Muli akong humalik.
Sa pisngi.
Paulit-ulit.

At labi ko’y naglakbay
hanggang sa labi mo’y dumantay.

Ika’y pumikit.
Nakangiti.
Hininga mo’y pigil.
Tila hinihintay ang muli kong paghalik.

At bago sana kita muling hagkan
kita’y masuyo munang pinagmasdan.
Nang krus sa kuwintas mo’y kuminang,
May batong sa budhi ko’y dumagan.

Di na kita muling mahagkan.

Takang-takang mata mo’y iminulat
Yumuko ako’t humingi ako ng tawad
At sa pisngi mong sa luha’y tigmak
Sa huling pagkakataon
Labi ko’y lumapat.

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, and essays, when I do research, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. I don't write for cash incentives, "likes," and "praises." I would be thankful if I'll have them but the happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my real rewards. Is teaching difficult? No! 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!
