A Message From Marupok To Marupok

Galaxyofunspokenwords' definition of marupok: adj. Filipino term for being soft-hearted; you are most likely marupok if you fall for someone too fast and too hard. Just a simple "hi" would make your legs weak; a simple "i miss you" would make you crumble.

Sa ngayon, ako muna

    I never heard anyone say that getting into your 20s is a terrific time. Na marami palang "what if" at "lost passion and dreams" ang mangyayari. Nobody warned me that asking to grow more quickly as a child was a tragic mistake. At age of 20, you begin to wonder...
It's been more than a month since I last heard from you. There were times when I miss you so bad and there were times when I feel hurt, disappointed and sad. You were just gone and I didn't know what happened. I thought you see me as a mature person but why you didn't let me know...
I hope it's okay with you that you are not my first love because my first love drives out all the fears in my life. This love ignites my hopes and aspirations. This love forgives all the mistakes and accepts all my failings.
I hope you remember the lil' kid inside of you, who lives in faith and not by sight and pursues love more than fears and doubts

I've always felt uncertain about my future. As days passed by, the fear haunts me. The pressure, the judgements, the assurance of others from me. I've been drowing on these series of what if's in my mind. My thoughts and doubts keeps on poking me. I've been so afraid that I may ...

Almost a year ago today, we met through an incident and you were my "savior" and "security." Big words that clouded my mind, as the days and months passed by overwhelmed with your love, care, and support. Although from the start, I knew you have all the red flags that are non-neg...
  Maybe it's for the best that we never settle for less. The amount of time we spend together will not tell if we last forever. It may fade over a night or lose in just one snap. We cannot tell what will happen  tomorrow. I tried to hold back but there are thi...
Salamat sa mga alaala. Salamat sa mga panahon na ninais mo akong makita. Salamat sa mga pag uusap na makabuluhan. Salamat sa mga oras na iyong ipinahiram. Salamat sa pakikinig. Salamat din at ako ay iyong napakilig. Salamat at ang lahat na ito ay natapos din. ...
Dearest Y, I sincerely apologize for my five years of infatuation and persistency that made you uncomfortable. You might not know this but your existence alone played a big part of where and who I am now, thank you so much for that. You and your achievements were my motivation...
Dear heart, Alam ko kung gaano kabigat ang dinadala mo ngayon. Ang hirap masanay sa mga bagay na panandalian lang pala. Ang sakit iwanan ng biglaan. Sana pwede ibalik ang nakaraan at magwarning sa sarili. Alam kong dumadating na sa punto na napapadasal ka nalang na sana pwede...
Natagpuan kita, sa tagpuan na walang kasiguraduhan, Nagbabakasakali na magkatagpo ang ating nararamdaman, Nagdarasal na tayo ang pinagtagpo ng maykapal, Kaso parang ang kapal, inaasam na makasama ka ng matagal, Habang ikaw ay iba ang dinarasal. Natagpuan kita, sa hindi ko ...
Someday let’s do the things we planned to..   Watch you play basketball while I cheer for you on the bleachers; Watch you play the guitar while I sing you a song just like how you used to tease me with all your favorite classic songs-- volumes up, together singing a...
                  Sometimes I've been thinking of those "what ifs" that could possibly happen  when you came to my life. What if we still go out together? what if I let my world revolve around you? what if I fell inlove with you? what if?! What we had is something unexplainable a...
Ayoko na. Mga katagang kayhirap bitawan, kahit alam mong wala ng patutunguhan di bale ng sarili ay nililinlang sa pagmamahal na walang kasiguraduhan. Kailan ka hihinto sa kahibangang bumabalot sayo? kahit alam mong hindi ka nya gusto; Pilit ka parin nagsusumamo wag lang s...

I’ve been truly happy. We immerse ourselves in every moment. In moments that we end up falling asleep due to long conversations and laughter, although sometimes they do not make any sense. In moments that we make fun of each other without offence and reply with a stronge...
I wish I had a double-me to hug myself right now.I've been through a lot lately, and I'm exhausted. I forgot to prioritize myself in order to give a hand to people in need. I'd like to take a moment to breathe and relax. If I do that, I'm a terrible person.I tried to re...
