P is for Poetry: Joan and Words


Did you know that, aside from acting, Joan wrote poetry too? I betcha didn’t.


Here are two poems she sent to Dan Mahony in 1928:

I am condemned for everything I do,
Even for each and every little mood.
Everything’s wrong and nothing is right,
However I guess that’s all in life.–
But there’s one little thought that give’s [sic] me great peace–
In my own mind Im [sic] right at least.

Aaand the other one:

“A Prayer”

 Hail Mary Mother so full of grace
With your lovely Madonna face,
You’ve listened to hundred’s of thousand’s pray:
You in your Heaven so fair and so brave.
You’ve heard the secret prayers of a child
Ever so meek — Ever so mild
The prayers of a mother you’ve heard & understood
Knowing in your heart all mother’s are good
A murderer when all hope is gone
Turn’s to you and thru darkness sees dawn
Even the strongest of all mankind
Beg your forgiveness, & worship your shrine
But Blessed Virgin Mary in your kingdom above
What equal’s the beauty of a maiden in love?
I know for as a child I prayed to you
And as a mother I prayed for comfort too
But this prayer is neither of child or mother
It’s the prayer of a girl who has a lover.


Here’s a poem she made in between marriages to Franchot Tone and Phillip Terry (and during an affair with a man that didn’t go well):

Where are you?
My heart cries out in agony,
In my extended hands
I give my heart with
All its cries — its songs — its love,
But it’s too late.
You are not here to see its sorrow
Or hear its throbbing of your name
Perhaps it’s better that way
You who love laughter —
Did you ever know I love laughter too?
Oh my beloved
Where are you?

Good enough, eh? 🙂


Happy blogging (and fangirling!)

Poetry Day: Anatomy of You

Wow! Been gone for a while. I should really apply what I’ve learned from the A-Z Blogging Challenge— to make a schedule and blog consistently, that is.

Anyway, I’m just gonna share a super short poem. Spur of the moment one. Just struck me when I was so happy and inspired. Hahaha.

“Anatomy of You”

Your eyes
Staring with passion
Looking closely
Into my soul

Your lips
Ever so gentle
Kissing its way
Into my own

Your hands
Lacing, intertwine
Softly brushing
Against mine

Your heart
Beating, racing
This love
Forever yours
Forever mine

Forever ours

Told you it’s a short one. Haha. Will blog about stuff soon! I badly wanna share my undying admiration for The Bee Gees, Roaring 20s and more! Gaah. Stay put!

Happy blogging (and writing randomly)!

Poetry Night: Silent Scream

So… I am sharing another poem with you guys. Hahaha. I actually wrote this two years ago, when I still have an “inspiration” for this kind of poetry. Fortunately (lol), I don’t have any reason to write this type of poem anymore… or at least not yet. Hahaha.

“Silent Scream”

far enough to bridge
long enough to keep
painful enough for me
more enough to bear
How long
will you make me think?

How long
will you hold time?
How long
will you shatter my heart?
How long
will you make me wait?

Can’t you hear
my voice screaming?
Can’t you see
my soul drowning?
Can’t you feel
the fire igniting?

of this repeating crap
we will break apart
my love will fade
my love will die
my love for you


Happy blogging (and poetry-writing)!

Z is for Zzz

ZSo… this is it. The last A-Z Blogging Challenge entry to be posted… for this year. Lol. This is, yet, another poem. I don’t have the time and energy to write my intended topic for this letter (Z is for Zombies) because, well, I’m busy as hell.

And this is, again, another “spur-of-the-moment” one. I’m surprised because I don’t usually write poems and, for the past few days, I’ve written a lot in just minutes. I just put random words together, really. Hahaha.


underneath, a new home
and never let me go

So long
been a roller coaster
seeking the non-existent

softly, as I lay down
light of endless lies

where I’m destined to be
turn off the lights

Hope you enjoyed my last post! And advance congratulations to all A-Z Challenge participants! 🙂

Happy blogging (and writing creatively lol)!


Y is for You


Told you… my second-to-the-last (sniff!) A-Z Challenge entry is also a poem…


You loved, you lost
You left, you returned
You tried, you failed
You cried, you took a break

You loved, you lost
You cared, you were ignored
You tried, you failed
You gave up, you went away

You loved, you lost
You thought right, you were wrong
You tried, you failed
You’ve had enough, you said

You loved, you always will
You forgot, you never did
You moved on, you waved your hand
You said goodbye, you set yourself free

… and another one…


You build me up
You melt me down
You keep me sane
You drive me nuts

You steal my heart
You bring it back
You’re my sunshine
You’re my stormy night

You bring a smile
You make me frown
You take care of me
You just let me be

You are the cause
You are the cure
You turn me to ice
You set me on fire

… and another one…


You talk and talk
So many words untold
You like to say
But never open your mouth

How are you lately
Oh, I know perfectly
How could I not see
You shove it in my face

Put your thoughts to rest
I’m tired of seeing them
Won’t you please
Please just stop typing

Reading, listening
If you want to say something
Please just tell me
Talk only to me

Whoa… I’ve been bitten by the “poem ladybug” lol! I don’t know how and why, but… there you go. 😛

P.S.: I repeat, I’m not that much of a poet. Hahaha.

Happy blogging (and writing creatively lol)!

X is for XOXO


Another “spur-of-the-moment” poem for this day’s A-Z Blogging Challenge entry. And I shall warn you: tomorrow’s post is also a poem. Hahaha.


Alone at last
You and I
Eye to eye
There’s no turning back

Don’t you dare
Move so fast
If you must
Please stop the time

This one chance
May never be ours
We’ll make it last
There’s no holding back

Hugs and kisses
We’ll close our eyes
Stop the clock
Pause, rewind

Happy blogging (and writing creatively lol)!

W is for What Isn’t Said


Another poem from yours truly! Just for this year’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. 😛  (Yes, I’m being poetic because of this challenge. Lol)

I repeat: I’m not that much of a poet. Hahaha.

“What Isn’t Said”

Arms wrapped
Silence all around
Your lips moving
No words coming out
But your eyes say a lot

Whispers in my ear
Reasons to believe
You look at me
What isn’t said
I don’t need to hear

Impulse movements
You take me by surprise
Sweet things irresistible
Actions towering
Over words forgotten

Unimportant, irrelevant
Such definitions too boxed
Your eyes, your heart
What isn’t said
Doesn’t matter anymore

Happy blogging (and writing creatively lol)!

K is for Kiss



I’m a bit shy, but I’m gonna share it anyway. For this A-Z Blogging Challenge post, let me share a poem that I wrote just a few minutes ago. I’m not really a poem person, but at least I tried. 😛


Under the starry sky
Waiting for the right time
Heart beating so fast
There is no backing out

Sweat trickling
Down my trembling skin
Blood rushing
Through my very veins

As I slowly feel
The passion too strong
Lips burning
On fire, igniting

The time has come
Much has been said
The kiss of a lifetime
This kiss… that will never happen

Happy blogging (and writing creatively lol)!


When boredom strikes

Bored + lack of sleep + sudden burst of emotions = THIS:

This little girl went near a cliff
Saw a sign and didn’t give a sh*t
Saw a warning but went close anyway
There she fell, happy and free


I made the “poem” yesterday when I was still in the office. I got kinda bored after finishing a handful of images, so I quickly grabbed my pen and notebook and wrote random stuff. The illustration, however, was made today using MS Paint. I actually have a hand-drawn version on my notebook, but I left it in the office. Shame.

Anyway, there… the things we do when we’re bored. *bow*
