Ang Babae sa Salamin

Nagising sa umaga
na tanging luha ang alaala
di malaman kung bakit
sa umaga’y mugto ang mga mata

Tinatanong sa salamin
ano nga bat nangyari
sa kalagitnaan ng gabi
ano nga bang namayani

Napatigagal na lamang
sa babaeng sa salami’y nakatingin
mga matang mugto
tila may inililihim

Napapailing sa katigasan
na bumabalot sa kanyang paningin
at iwinaksi ang kalungkutan
sa hilamos ng malamig na tubig.

  1. That is so soulful, moving, with deep heart felt emotions. In several aspects of our lives, we saw our own reflections, in tears, or felt like we were in tears. Sometimes we laugh cause we thought it was silly or perhaps it makes the pain bearable. I just wish we can quickly take it off when we wash our face. May be several facial washes. Awesome post!

    1. Thank you for the kind words. Hmm so you understand Tagalog, a Filipino?

      Unfortunately that’s how it is, we can hide everything in face value but when you look on your own reflection, the eyes alone could tell you what it hides. Its like a spear piercing through you.

    1. Good morning din sayo bingi
