My Sun

Yours was the sunset that brought me to my knees,

Ukelele

With gentle tunesAnd every pluck of each stringI summon happinessI live with glee.Whoever made youHas indeed a heart of goldFor the joy you bring meOne that even by words can’t ever be told.

Tulak

Takbo. Habol. Lipad. Sabi nila kailangan ko daw matutong huwag tumigil, kahit pagod na, ang huminga ng saglit ay bawal, kung tagumpay ang hangarin.   Ngiti. Halakhak. Labas ang ngipin. Ang sarap tumawa, sana’y walang katapusan, kung sumaya ay ganon kadali, bakit kayhirap gawin, tila marami ang malungkot sa atin?   Hinga. Pahingi ng pahinga. […]

Pangako

Kaytagal kitang hinintay. Oo, ikaw. Hindi naging madali ang ating pagtatagpo. Parehas tayong nagmahal ngunit sa kinasamaang palad ay nabigo. Sinabi natin sa ating sarili na di na natin bubuksan ang ating puso sa isang nilalang na kaya tayong gawing pinakamasayang tao sa mundo, at pinakamalungot. Mahal, sinasabi ko sayo na ngayong ika’y aking natagpuan, maaari […]

I wish I could tell you everything.

I wish I could be a hundred percent honest with you. I wish I could tell you that I miss our conversations about anything under the sun. I wish you didn’t build a wall and close everybody off. I wish you were consistent and honest. I wish you were ready. I wish you didn’t put […]
