Isang Liham para kay J

February, 2018. The day na nagkasalubong tayo; you were going somewhere I cannot even remember, and I was going to a meeting. There's nothing special on how we crossed our paths that day. Except for one thing: I hugged you for the first tim...

Love the Process

To you who are struggling right now. To you is in pained right now. To you who feel your situation doesn't make any sense. Know that it is part of the process. Importante na pagdaanan mo yan. Wag mag shortcut to escape the pain. In that way...

Dekada

Nagsimula ang lahat sa isang simpleng pang - aasar sakin ng mga kaibigan ko. Isa ka kasing halimbawa ng lalaking kahit sino man ay mapapahanga ang lahat . Ang agwat ng edad natin ay napakalayo ako ay 12 taon gulang ikaw naman ay 19 taon. No...

Alaala

Alalahanin natin. Alalahanin natin kung paano mo siya unang nasilayan. Kung paanong mga kamay mo'y pinagpawisan. Kung paano ka matunaw sa mga titig niyang malamlam. Alalahanin natin. Alalahanin natin kung paano ka nahulog sa kanyang mga ng...

Paalam sa ilalim ng ulan

Ang lamig ng gabi nung ika'y umalis. Tulad ng pagpatak ng ulan sa langit, ganun kataas nahulog ang aking sarili. Alam ko na hindi na dapat ako naghabol pero itong puso kong tuliro ay 'di papipigil. Ayoko na sana, sinubukan kong tumakbo ...

An open letter to my ex’s new lover

I already have eyes on you before we ended. You we’re part of the list that my ex labeled as “friends”. I keep seeing his Facebook stories filled with your happy face in it. Kissing your cheek the way he used to kiss mine. I unfrien...

Para kay K

Tatlong salita ang nagsimula ng ating kwento. I love you. Pero tatlong salita rin ang tumapos dito. I kissed her. My heart didn't just break, it shattered. Durog na durog. Wasak na wasak. 'Yung apat na taon natin nagwakas sa tatlong sali...

Masaya Naman Pala: I Am Free

You Had Me at “Kain Tayo”

I never liked you back then. So your “Kain Tayo” was not really a big deal for me. I even declined every time. Ngunit isang beses kumain tayo sa Greenwich, naramdaman kong gumaan agad ang loob mo sa akin. Mas nakilala kita. Ang totoong i...

Dear Self

I know you've been very busy lately trying to pick yourself up piece by piece. Sorry for making you vulnerable. You are genuine, very fragile and innocent. I thought I could make you stay that way, believing that you are not alone. That som...

Paano mag move on… ang isang guro? (guro edition)

  "Paano ba mag move on?" Sa taong katulad kong hindi lang yun ang kailangang gawin, sa mga taong hindi lang yun ang dapat isipin. Sa taong imbes umiiyak na lang sa mga oras na yun e mas pinipili pang gumawa ng Lesson Plan. Sa ...

We

We dared to dream. We took risks. We climbed mountains. We dived into the oceans. We jumped from cliffs. We run. We fall. We drowned. We crashed. We will rise again.

To the One who love me the most

My heart was crushed. My individuality was tainted. My purity taken. My whole being destroyed. How do you get out of the grave where you were buried alive? How do you breathe when you’re suffocating? How do keep those eyes from w...

I thought you were the one, but now you’re gone

I was afraid to fall in love again. But when you came, I gladly took the risk. I used to think that you were just a friend. I knew that it was wrong. I allowed you to enter my fragile heart and create a feeling that I couldn't get over. I f...

An open letter to someone whom almost caused me to lose my self worth

When the first time I met you, honestly I haven't feel anything at all. You were just a plain someone. I haven't had any idea about you. My templates were purely blanksheets not until I dug into more details. At first, I found you so nice,...

Two Little Steps

Everyday, I take two little steps forward steps going away from you as I slowly pick up the pieces that once belonged to you. Everyday, I try to unlove you to make myself believe again that everything will all get better if I love my...

For that Person Who Asked for a Second Try

"Kamusta?" You asked after a month of trying to move on. Or have we really tried to move on? After more than a year of our relationship full of ups and downs, we decided to stop fighting. You decided to stop pursuing and I decided to ...

An Open Letter To You My Prayer.

  It has been months since we broke up.Yet, I am still here crying over you.How many times I told myself to move forward, I still couldn't do it.I am stuck up in the past where there will still you and me. Someone tried to fix me b...

Bloodshed

Deep cut wounds eventually heals by far, what it left us is a permanent scar

TULANG WALANG TITULO

Gusto kong simulan sa kung paanong ang lahat ay nagtapos, Yung tipong ang malayang ako , sa kalungkutan na ay nakagapos, Hindi dahil sa ikaw ay nawala, kundi dahil sa kung ano ang iyong mga ginagawa. Oo, mga ginagawa mo na hindi ko na...

“I just left”

Regret. Emptiness. Pain. Lost. Anguished. YOU. I walked out. I ended things. I was committed into a toxic relationship when you came into my life. I fell in love with you in the wrong time so I didn't tell you. I ...

Malungkot, pero kakayanin ko

Sa tuwing nakikita ka, masaya ako. Sa bawat simpleng pag-sulyap sa'yo, nakukumpleto ang araw ko. Talagang ikaw ang aking gusto. Matagal ko nang nalaman ito, pero pilit ko pa ring tinatago. Kailangang pigilan ang sarili na lapitan at kausapi...
