To the Last Man I Dated

To the Last Man I Dated

A photo appeared on my news feed this evening as my phone automatically connected to my home internet. I guess I forgot to remove you from my following list. You were standing right next to your ex-girlfriend, but it turns out, you’re back together and you’re getting married. I chuckled, shook my head, and thought: I was right all along. When you no longer called back that morning when you promised you will, I had a hunch that somehow, even…

On Forgiveness…

On Forgiveness…

I haven’t thought of you in a while, but last night you popped into my dreams. For some unknown reason, you were there, smiling at me and holding my hand. We were in some sort of an old castle which kind of reminds me of Meatloaf on Anything for Love. There was some sort of a ball, and there was this grand staircase. We were standing at the bottom waiting for people to come in… Suddenly, the ballroom was filled…

In my dreams…

In my dreams…

‪I had a dream a couple of nights ago.‬ ‪I dreamed of you of all people I could dream about and I dreamed of a situation we always talked about when there are endless possibilities in what I could dream about. But instead, I dreamed of you and the child we always wanted. She looked an awful lot like you and was always smiling.‬ ‪In my dream, I knew you were committed as you are now, and I was scared…

Unsent Letters 02

Unsent Letters 02

Back to where I first saw you in full light, with a bucket of beer by my side like we’ve done. I look in the distance thinking about that night. Thought about the things we talked and laughed about, how I realized that I liked you a lot. Wondered what I might have said that drove you away hoping that one day you’d find it in your heart to pick up your phone and ask to meet me up to…

Unsent Letters 01 

I’m nothing close to being wiser.I held out my hand to you hoping things are finally getting better… that you’re a little kinder. But you like to play with the fire of which I no longer desire. Yet, here I am on a pedestal even more illogical, irrational. Thinking ’bout you when I shouldn’t— but I couldn’t. I’ve tried so hard to mar your memory from my mind. I guess, you were really just that kind…

On this day three years ago…

On this day three years ago…

As I walk this old familiar road where we used to walk hand in hand after making love in the wee hours of January, I realized how much I miss being held close by someone I could actually call mine. I miss the late night talks I used to share with the person whom I could start a future with. Someone to drive around in the middle of the night just because we couldn’t sleep. The chance of seeing someone…

Obra ni Maria 06 – Pamumundok

Aakyatin ko nalang mag-isa lahat ng bundok na pinangako kong isasama kita. Kasabay ng pag akyat ko ay ang pag limot ng alaalang nilimot mo na din ako. Tanging ang alaala ng mga ngiti at boses mo nalang siguro ang baon ko. Aakyatin ko nalang mag-isa lahat ng bundok na pinangako kong isasama kita. Iiwan ko na din lahat ng natitira kong pag asa sa baba. Kasabay ng pag lubog ng araw, iiwan ko na din ang nakaraan. Sa bawat…

I’ll visit all the places I wanted to take you to, Sing all the songs I wanted to sing to you. I’ll let the fresh breeze caress my skin, All the while my hopes are running thin. Yet, if I ever hear from you again, I won’t ever allow myself to feign. I’ll take you to the places I planned with you, Sing all the songs on the top of our lungs like we used to do. I’ll let your…

Evanesce

I’ve written you a love letter late last year, during the time I was so sure you were going to see me again after your long holiday from the countryside. I wrote you that love letter in hopes that finally, after so many years of unsent love letters, I would finally be able to actually send one. A letter sealed with love and promises that I intend to say and keep, with my fingers crossed and my heart almost skipping…

Strangers

Strangers

And all of a sudden, we’re strangers once again. Back into the crowd of smiling faces of the broken hearts and empty spaces. I’ve sunk deep enough into the abyss that I’ve reached its end. Yet, this heart still won’t bend. Now that we’re strangers again, Back to nothing, but I’m still hoping. These spaces between my fingers still longed to lock with yours, My heart keeps on beating, it does nothing else but roar. But since we’re strangers again,…
