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…

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…

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,…

Him: Iyong iyo ko hon! Buong buong buo… Her: kung di rin lang ikaw wag nalang Him: Mahal na mahal kita higit pa sa iniisip mo… — Enero 2014 Enero 2017 na… Wala ng sila Tanging alaala na lamang nila ang natira Ngunit heto parin, magkausap nanamang muli Pinaguusapan ang nakaraan, at kasalukuyan Nagbabakasali Nagtatawanan na parang magkaibigan Ngunit di maitago ang nararamdaman kung minsan May panahon sa buhay man nila’y nagmahalan ng lubos Nangako na magsasama kahit ano pa…

The Art of Me

The Art of Me

There was a time when all you see was me… camera phone in hand, you’d capture me. Vulnerable, as you clicked. Stripped down naked, curled up in bed or with a drink. Never in my life had I been photographed the way you did to me… All my life, that will always be the art of me. Black and white, cause you always said I had a classic beauty. Even to this day, you admit that I am one and…

Flame

Flame

My eyes have never sparkled like they did when I was with you. My smile have never been so bright until you looked at me and made me feel like I am your world. Ideas and feelings have never ignited in me as they did when you held me in your arms. You set me ablaze till you’ve decided to walk away, without a word, extinguishing the pyre you’ve made. And now, I’m nothing but a pile of ashes on…

Obra ni Maria 04 – Tanong…

“Masakit ba?” Tanong nilang lahat. Tinignan lang sila at inisip kung dapat nga bang masaktan sa dalawang linggong inakala’y pang matagalan, pang-habang buhay. “Masakit ba?” Tanong ulit nila. Kung totoo ngang pag-ibig ang nadama, ay Oo, masakit ngang talaga. “Eh, di naman naging kayo, hindi ba?” May mga pagkakataon na di na binibilang ang relasyon. Hindi din ito tamang basehan ng pagmamahal. Ang pangungulila ay isang sapat na patunay na naging totoo ang lahat, kahit ito’y panandalian lamang. “Hanggang kelan…
