A bottle of pills am I,
but beware —
for when you take one of mine,
In desperate times, I cure;
but for most, I curse
and for wellness, I’ve no use.
I am where your eyes can’t meet mine,
but when gone am I from your sight,
the needed am I, the safer I hide.
And yet, the harder you seek
a dose of me, the merrier I am;
the farther you reach for me,
the closer I become;
the deeper you need me,
the sicker you are, the more addicting
Riddle me this, riddle me that —
find out more of me, and pray,
am I human or I am what.
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.
