Hideaway

I don’t love you. At least not in the way that you used to know I do. But I am all passion and built up loneliness with a dash of nostalgia; Could either be something you’d come back for or regret. But I felt neither. Satisfied, though we were, it felt nothing but what it is. An act. Certain urges,…

On Self-love…

As a child we are showered graciously with love and affection… Such is the case that love becomes a limiting act bound to a one-way cycle. As we grow older, the supply of what once was overflowing decreases and so most people tend to lose themselves; running around, seeking love in the arms of someone else. What the world once…

Letting Go…

I remember how you walked in to the living room with me for the first time. That certain and genuine smile you wore that night gave me reasons to smile.   I felt so happy, you were, too. We sang, we laughed and on that couch we climbed, Drunk on rice wine, we set off through the night.   And…

Adrift…

My love is an ocean. Many men have sailed but sunk. Deep within the depths are debris. Broken, fragmented, scattered. I believe there’s too much rubble. So much that no one would dare, To do anything to stay afloat.

My Untold Pain

To this day, I still think of you. I still dream about you, of all the things that could have been and all the things that I could have done with you. I think of all the places we could have been to. You came in swiftly, I wasn’t even sure if I were ready, and though I never truly…

Obra ni Maria 01 – Dalampasigan

Habang ang bibig ng karagatan ay humahalik Sa mala-paraisong dalampasigan, Aking tinanaw ang dating tagpuan Biglang nanumbalik ang mga tuwa at ngiti Na ka’y tagal nang di bumati sa aking labi.   Sa pag sikat ng panibagong araw, Aking napagtanto ang di mabilang na pagkakataon Na mag-isa kong hinarap ang mga alon. Hanggang sa ako’y nalunod sa paniniwalang ako’y nakakapit,…

Sunshine

And suddenly, the clouds have cleared. The sun shone and it has never been brighter. Suddenly, I look at you at a whole new different light. Dormant emotions suddenly rising, Hope cups suddenly refilling, Yet, somewhere along the way, I’ll close my drapes and think of all the ways, That you would never learn to look at me like I…

I Still Look For You

I look at his photos, maybe even stare in his eyes and let him hold my hand. We may stand under my yellow umbrella in the pouring rain, smiling, but I won’t feel the same way I felt that last time you stood in front of me. In the height of my freedom, I still wished we’re in bed together…

A Love Letter…

Dear love, I have been thinking about you for the longest time, wondering where you are and what you’re up to. It’s funny, cause I haven’t even met you nor seen your face, yet I believe that wherever you are a part of you thinks of me, too. Damn, I can’t wait to finally meet you. But like the healing…
