The Beast No More-A Poem about the Magic of Love


I was on my tired knees
Made and pleaded for a wish
Swollen eyes soaked in tears
Wished that I did not exist

My life is a bad joke
An egg without a yolk
An ugly beast in amok
Underneath the black cloak

Then you came along
Telling me I’m not alone
(Passion on your voice’s tone)
That for me there is a home

My doomed journey ends
Path to self-destruction’s gone
You healed my soul and cleanse
With the touch of your hands

Awhile, I’m on my knees again
This time, I am more of a man
Beside me, a woman in gown
One with the passionate tone

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
