MUNG A TOO LUNG PUMP PAR LORE atbp
October 2014 33 pages 25 poems
Available ebook (pdf) FREE at http://twolah.blogspot.com/
“Mung A Tool Lung Pump Par Lore atbp” translates to ‘proper’ English as “parlore poems” as each poem in the book is written in English but reads out in the Philippine language Tagalog. Reading the poems and interpreting them is like playing a game of word search. Writing them is transcendental meditation. If your language is both English and Tagalog, you’re lucky enough to be able to make two readings of the poems. If your language is just English, now’s...

Today I started writing again, but I also started reading a book. It's called Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira. It's about a girl named Laurel who after getting an assignment in English class her freshman year to write a letter to a person whose died, she starts writing letters to several people whom have passed away. I haven't finished the book and I barely half way through it but it's just written so beautifully. It reminds me of Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky so far. The odd narration through letters, only instead of writing to an unknown friend, she's writing to...

Dear Reader,
my brother, dave, wrote this letter to my dad,
some time in the 1980's, I believe.
My mom and dave had taken off to England, while
everyone else stayed in Michigan.
The style of the letter is fairly innocent, although not
really jock shock and awe poetry writing of the internet era we currently live in.
enjoy!




mom says it isn't fair.
Thats because we are on a train and are not
at the fair.

I've been burning myself. Please do not send internet hugs, sympathy, empathy or pity. I got diagnosed as a creative person. I'm not even kidding. That's what my therapist said. Well, not only that, they said that creative people tend to be the most critical of themselves. That's true. I noticed my problems, I'm working on them. Anyways, thought you should know why I didn't post or comment on anything recently. My reading and writing of poetry will continue shortly. Probably on the 17th. Oh, the 15th is my birthday. Yay.

I have known a million people, but never like you. Many of my friends are special. But I still don't have a clue, how you got to be so wonderful. The worlds most perfect friend. You've always loved me and helped me, even when I was wrong. I'm sorry that I've hurt you. I'm sorry that I've hurt you. I'm sorry that I've made you cry. I will do my very best to make you proud, I promise I will try. Everyone sees hardship. And everyone feels pain. And if anyone knows it's you and me, the sun will shine through rain. You've given me so much. That words aren't enough to say how much I love you. I'm...

There was a group from Keira High who went across the sea;
Who resided in Japan and were all filled up with glee.
They saw the sights and had delights that were just a bit too strange,
But they survived in the end and their cultural knowledge changed.
First they went to HIP to revise their Japanese,
Then they went to a Japanese school and everyone was pleased.
Many students gave out toys and threw them to the masses;
And then the little kids all ran out in flashes
To get the Aussie souvenirs was quite a lovely feeling;
Which left the little Japanese...

I know by the time you read this I will be out of the house and you can continue on with your life, and be a lot happier. I think though there are some things you fail to see.
I know that I haven't been the greatest member of your "perfect" family; but honestly, I am not your child. We are two different people, I think the major difference is that I don't let people push me around, including you; because through the years I am the one who constantly gets all the shit in the house, and I try to manage. But I am punished for managing in my methods, but if I was treated equal, then we...

The snippet of conversation he had shared previously with her that day had left him feeling uninspired, he almost concluded that he should no longer reply to her, a good morning and a good night left at their respective times to let her know he was alright and still thought of her, but little more than that, he knew he couldn't do this no matter how hard he tried. Though the conversation on the surface appeared full of cheer and normality something about it's presentation, the tone he read it in, the over all feel and aspect of every word had numbed him, it had been a cold conversation,...

I can't take this
I can't take the stress anymore
I can't take the bullying
I can't take the depression
I can't take the pressure
I can't take the lies
I can't take the broken promise's
I can't take the hate
I can't take the crying
I can't take the goodbye's
I can't take the pressure
I can't take the fake smile I put on
I can't take this anymore
I can't ask for help,
No one will listen.
No one will take the time and sit down and actually listen to me.
I just want help...
Or maybe I don't want...

As I rub the sleep from my eye and vision clears from a blur, a corpse appears beside me in the chair by the bed. It is sitting there silently, it's mouth doesn't move. Yet I hear her voice clearly and sweetly in my head. 'Where were you? Why didn't you come back? I waited, I waited, and you didn't come.'
What, what is it? Who are you? What are you doing in my house? I ask but aloud.
'Don't say you don't know me,' says the voice in my head, 'don't say you've forgotten, for I can't live with that.' The voice is familiar, just vaguely, I know. Somewhere in the annals of...

Dear best Friend. Why did You Leave Me.
We Grew up Together... You Saved Me From Terrible People..
Then Once Fifth Grade Came Around You became Diffrent.
Girls Teased You because of The Way you Looked.
You were the Most Beautiful Girl in School and you didn't Believe Me..
Why did You Leave Me..
We'd Sit Together at Luch.
I'd Notice that you Didn't Eat Anymore..
Neither did I. I Just Threw up My Food Afterwards.
You Came To School One Day,
Your Mascara Smudged,
And Your Wrists,Your Wrists had Large Bloody Cuts.
You weren't the Only One Doing...

Life is like death to me now.
flesh cold, numb feeling.
can't feel the warm tears running down your cheeks, it's all hopeless now.
can't even appreciate the Spring & Summer colors when your whole world looks brown.
Even when you're having fun with your friends,
from a smile to a frown, then the sun goes down
& you have to rush home like you're trying to beat traffic on the 405 after seven.
then everyone's mad,
I'm mad at you, you're mad at me,
I want space & you won't let me breathe.

I always look for this number
As part of a series of 4 numerals
That identify the number of the subway car
in which I am riding

For example if the car has the number
8543
Then I feel gratified
Without the # 3 in the series of numerals
I feel somewhat disappointed

I'm sure there is therapy
for my issue
But it's not terrible if no # 3
Just a preference
