R.S. Mallari

The Reason is Love


A dozen red roses
Or chocolates perhaps
Better yet both
But would it be enough?

Candle light dinner date
A walk at the park
On a starry night
Will it bring back the spark?

I’ve done you wrong, so bad
Your heart I ripped apart
Broke your spirit in pieces
Now I seek forgiveness

You can point a gun
Pull the trigger on my face
I will not even run
Because that’ll be my escape

It will surely be a relief
To finally end all my days
Because the day I left
Was the day I also died

I left you not because
I did not love you
I went away with tears
And my heart was with you

There are just things
That can’t be said
But believe me princess
It’s only you that I’ve loved
And I did it for you

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.
