[Poetry] Untitled

Will you love me for the way
I lose myself in stories—
My heart falling easily
Knowing they will not hurt me?

Will you love me for the way
My heart falls slowly but true—
And if I choose to love you
Will you choose to love me too?

Tagged by Rosema a while back on our Instagram pages to write a Tanaga and I’m finally sharing it here with you all. Hope you guys like it!

The Tanaga is a Filipino stanzaic form written in any number of quatrains, 7-7-7-7 syllables per line. It was originally rhymed aaaa bbbb cccc, etc., but modern Tanagas also use aabb ccdd etc or abba cddc etc or any combination rhyme can be used. It is composed with the liberal use of metaphor and untitled.
