Lolita

It's always darkest before the dawn, Batangas 2011

Let me close my eyes
and wait ‘till all these are gone
I won’t say a word
I won’t bother a soul

like before,
like the many other befores.

I’ll remember the songs
the pauses and the sharps
I’ll remember the dreams
the hues and the steeps
I’ll remember the poems
the measures and the rhymes
I’ll remember there’s me
never with you.

But tell me,
tell me Lolita,
when all these are gone
when all these are over
tell me when they’re done
so I’ll open my eyes once more
and that once again
I can convince this world I’m okay.

Although sometimes I think, what if, and I wish, I didn’t just open my eyes.
