I'm Just Sorry I Was Not Sweeter

We don’t forget the sweetness of the past
But the bitter taste of the kiss you left
Remained as a dew on lips
Where your name have never been once again spoken

Our salty tears never fall
They stay suspended
As hearts were frozen in the middle of beats
To leave everything unfinished and in ruins

Perhaps we are sour with pride to apologize
I’m just sorry I was not sweeter...


 This is a book with the size 3x3 & 1/4 inch. Handmade and sewn manually. Leather cover is made with synthetic materials, paper is made out of ground wood and is in its natural color. This book is created in a small size to fit in an envelope to be shipped to another country. I usually create books the size of 5x7, 8x6 and 9x7.

Poems and books are available at my website, which I haven't been able to update recently...
Catch me during the Pride March Event December 3, UP Writer's Night December 9 and 10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair at December 10 to 11. After that I would very much love to disappear and be on hiatus.

10a Alabama Arts + Crafts Fair : What a Starved Writer Would Do

Yes, I admit it. I'm a closet book binder. *weeps* I suppose I couldn't keep the secret any longer, since there are event information that need to be disseminated. I've been doing it for a while now and it wasn't really easy to hide. I suppose I was born a book binder and also a writer. Don't hate me...

This coming December is packed with busy weekends. Aside from attending the annual Pride March Parade, the following week I will also be showcasing my hand-bound books, shelves, poetry collection and others on December 10-11 at 10a Alabama New Manila, Quezon City.  

I would appreciate you dropping by to say hi or to take a look at my books and items. Don't miss this once in a blue-moon event that celebrates handmade artifacts in local grounds.

Book Cover for Paper Monster Press (Trip-Hop + Dream-Pop issues) is also available. 

This is only a preview of the Paper Monster Press cover since I'm not done with it yet. It has no reproduction. It is a representation of how I understood its philosophy and essence. I have submitted a poem to their dream-pop issue and it is still included in my bound version. Content is mostly intact.

 Limited Edition Poetry Collection by Veronica

Teaching of Buddha 137th Edition (Content) Cover is mine. I'm keeping this one.
Invisible bookshelves are also available. 
Drop by the place if you haven't found the perfect gift for your friends and loved ones. There are great varieties available, grab your friends and take a tour of the place. Get to meet the ones who create these items and strike up an interesting conversation.

See you there, I'll be expecting you. :) Next post next week will preview the shelves. Abangan!
