Make Room for Poetry

by Anj CP | Love Poems and Other Mushy Stuff




It was the same road,

But a different direction.

It was the same words,

But a different intention.

When I look back

I find myself in contention

If all that ever was

my mind’s own creation.

I didn’t think I would make it, honestly. The deadlines were tight, and a lot of things were out of my control, but by some miracle, it looks like this will be launched on September 17! Ohmygee! I am just so thankful that I didn’t give up, and that a million hands helped me along the way. For a gal who has been writing love poems when she was just in grade school,this is an absolute dream come true!

50 Poems on Love!

Let’s pop the bottle and celebrate for yes, I maybe a few months late, but finally, I have written 50 love poems! It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but it wasn’t as easy either. The lure of doing other things was great and constant, but I’m glad I didn’t give up. Soon, this will come out as a compilation entitled, “Love, Talaga” (roughly translated to “Love, Really”) which will (fingers crossed) be launched this coming September at the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF)! Weee! I’m so happy and relieved that things are falling in place and I can now see more clearly where all this work is headed to.
