Labus

Nakalabus ta.
Ket pimmul-oy ti angin.
Ay na, naglammin!

Undressed

We are undressed.
And the breeze blew.
Oh, it’s cold!

The love you offered.
Faded quick.

Baram ti ules
Dungngom ti pagpunganan
Dennam ti alpag

Your warmth is a blanket
Your affection is a pillow
Your company is a bed

And it digs deep,
The coldness of dawn.
I look for you.

My longing was inviting.
Nobody came.
