“Hamog,” Binalaybay ni Marcel L.Milliam

by Pangga Gen

Marcel L. Milliam

Natatakot ako
Na ipakiusap sa yo
Na pagsabihan at kagalitan
Ang hamog
Na huwag na sisiksik
Sa ating kwarto.
Mainggitin pa naman ito
Kaya pinanunuotan
N’ya talaga tayo.
Kasi baka pag sinaway mo ‘to
Bigla kang hablutin nito
At biglang mawala
Ka na lang.
Titiisin ko na lang
Ang lamig
Kasi mas natatakot talaga ako
Sa lamig kung mag-iisa
Na lang ako.
Pero mas takot din ako
Ipakiusap sa’yo
Na sana yakapin mo ‘ko ng mahigpit
Kasi baka hablutin mo din bigla
Ang aking puso
At mawawala ako
Sa aking sarili.
Sanay naman ako
Sa lamig.
