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,…

Obra ni Maria 05 – Enero

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…

Dresses and Rompers and where to get them…

Dresses and Rompers and where to get them…

Not a lot of people know this, but I am actually a huge fan of clothes. Back in my college days, I used to always wear rompers whenever I go out of town cause it gives me the mobility I can’t get when I’m wearing plain jeans. I used to own a bunch of rompers back in the day and worn them whenever I travel, especially in beaches. But somehow, along the way (and a couple of pounds later), I…

Obra ni Maria 02 – Nilimot Ko Na

Nilimot ko na Ang kislap sa iyong mga mata Kapag ika’y kasama, tumatawa Masaya. Nilimot ko na Ang mga sandaling tayo’y magkatabi Sa sasakyan mo noong mga gabing Iniisip kong pwedeng maging tayo. Nilimot ko na Yung gabing biglang ayokong bumaba Dahil gusto pa kitang makausap, Makasama. Yun ang gabi na nag usap tayo Ng mga plano mo at gusto Ang gabi na tinapat kita sa mga bagay Na kinatatakutan ko. Natakot ako. Dahil yun ang gabi na kahit balot…

On Sunsets…

On Sunsets…

Sunsets, though pricelessly beautiful, is soon followed by darkness. And though the night sky is lighted by a billion stars, sometimes, it isn’t enough to hide the looming loneliness it can bring. Endless, it may even seem. So I’d like to think that you’re sunrise… Just as beautiful but followed by day light. (M. 01092017)
