I Have No Time

written by: Lei Writses

 

I have no time to be sad,
neither do I have time to weep
on things that were never sure.

Nor do I have a second,
not e'en a nano of it,
to drop a tear on affairs.

Parties no more excite me,
yet cheers to the thought you have—
that you, again, broke my heart.

I fancy no break-up poems,
but I mind not writing one
if it means one thing: freedom.

Someone lend me a minute,
saying, "you should cry sometimes;"
and I say, "no, thanks, I'm fine."

My time is for me to keep
as if saved hours are dollars,
for better I be alone.

Now sold are my times to love,
'cause the future paid me with
fresh mem'ries of love dramas.

Though, I have plans to misspell—
the word I loathe— 'love' with lust,
so I can bury it down.

And I have no time to trust,
neither have I the courage
to welcome men in my life.

Nor shall I invest again
Love and Trust to a woman,
I have no more time to try.

Ne'er again shall I have time
to play the role of a fool;
a waste: to risk my saneness.

Lei Writses

I was born in Cebu City, was raised in the municipality of Argao, and write under the Pseudonym 'Lei Writses'. The pen name should be 'Lei Writes', or 'Lei Scrittore' (which means 'She Writes') as I love the language Italian, but due to some typographical errors, I mistakenly typed 'Writses' instead of Writes. Soon enough, I started to love how it rolls in my tongue and that's how the history was made. Some people who graduated from secondary school have two options: to proceed to college or work to earn; I have three, and I chose to stay at home and write poems. I have been composing poems for nine years, starting from when I was ten years old. But, all of the poems I wrote then were washed off during the Hurricane Haiyan. Now, I have been able to compose 200 sonnets for 200 days straight, and am still working on another 165 to complete a promise to myself. I also wrote a number of short stories, villaneles, sestinas, and many other forms of poetry. Poetry, to me, is not just a hobby. It is by far the greatest love of my life, and I am more than happy to share my love for it with everyone, and inspire people from all walks of life.
