Because you’re worth the risk

I have been a risk taker before but not for relationships. Everything changed and you're the best risk I ever took. We've been friends and maybe mere acquaintances before. Actually, we've been classmates in high school and time pas...

Sana Kapag Pwede Na, Pwede Pa

Nababasa ko sa pagitan ng iyong mga salita. Nais mo na ako ay manatili ngunit ang oras ay hindi tama. Paano nga ba napunta sa ganitong sitwasyon? Tila punong-puno ng kumplikasyon. Alam natin kung ano ang nararamdaman ng isa't-isa, hindi nat...

Can I love you even though I can’t have you?

You were someone that I always looked up to. You seem so near, yet so distant. I always used to love someone who is very close to me. But what is happening to me? I used to think that all of this is an illusion that was built up by my emoti...

It’s Okay If You Won’t End Up With Your First Love

An Open Letter to My Future Love

Losing You is Choosing Me

I always believed that choosing you was the best decision I have ever made, and choosing you over and over again was the bravest. I want to choose you. I want to listen to your stories, to what excites you, and to what frustrates you. No ma...

How will you know if it’s true love?

True love waits. I have attended a talk before when I was in college about the aforementioned topic and its importance just dawned on me recently. It may sound cliché but true love does wait and it is not something we can manipulate nor for...

Liham para saaking unang pag-ibig

Liham para sa aking unang pag-ibig,                  Marahil hindi ito ang pinaka magandang tulang maitatala ko sa oras na ito. Nais ko sanang sabihin saiyo ang aking naramdaman dahil alam ko na kung ip...

To My Answered Prayer

It took me some courage to write you a letter. I don’t  know you yet and I’m thanking God for still keeping you as a mystery. I’m not sure if I have met you or if we have known each other. If we’ve already been friends, classmates, churchma...

Signs of Pure Intentions

The Problem In the journey of building and looking for the right relationships, it's easy to get swept away by surface-level attractions: a charming smile, a pleasant scent, or an impressive effort. But these initial sparks can be misle...

Allow Me To Love You Until I No Longer Do

Love Comes Back For The Second Time Around

All these years, I have come to realize that maybe love really never fades away. Maybe love is sometimes just lost waiting to be found, maybe it was just being left behind somewhere else, maybe it is just asleep and waiting for someone to c...

Huwag mong sanayin kung hindi mo kayang mahalin

In a world full of paasa and umaasa, ang hirap umiwas sa mga taong nagpaparamdam sa'yo ng panandaliang kilig or saya. Siguro nasanay na rin tayo sa mga bagay na pansamantala. Kasi people and feelings change so easily nowadays. Pero may mga ...

Muntik nang maging tayo

Nagsimula ang lahat sa isang pag-uusap. Pag-uusap na sa pakiramdam ko naman ay may patutunguhan. Hindi pa kita masyadong kilala pero ang lalim ng connection ko sa’yo. Feeling ko yung kilig ko wala nang katapusan kasi paulit-ulit ko namang n...

I want to be your permanent one.

I’m already done chasing the kind of love that demands my full attention, time, and heart. That kind of love is exhausting and draining. I don’t want that. I want the kind of love that allows me to continue to wander, grow, and build my...

Why Do We Always Hurt The One We Love?

Why do we always hurt the one we love? “True love hurts,” a cliché line I always read and heard. But does this justify our decisions and actions when we hurt the one we love? Is it enough to validate the hurt we brought by saying that we...

You Lost Her

You lost her when she noticed that the tone of your voice changed. You lost her when she felt like there’s a cold breeze every time you talk. The way you look at her like before faded away. The way you smile every time you see her vanished ...

An Open Letter to The Guy Who Left my Feelings Hanging—

You knew what I felt from the very beginning, yet you didn’t say a word. I never received anything not even a rejection, even though it was clear for me that the feelings weren’t mutual. But for you, you believed that I have the right ...

Please Don’t Make Me Attached If You Won’t Keep Me

Please don't make me attached if you won't keep me. I know in the first place that our so-called "relationship" is unclear. You see me as someone important, I guess? But is it enough for me to rely on mixed signals? Confusion starts to ente...

Loving a Breadwinner…

Hey there, my future. Loving me would probably be the most difficult relationship you would ever have to be involved in. Loving me would mean you have to broaden your understanding. Loving me would mean you have to understand that ...

An Open Letter To My Best Friend Whom I’m Secretly In Love With

Tbh, I have always seen you as a brother. Perhaps because I always wanted a Kuya and having you as my best friend sort of fulfilled that wish. It felt so reassuring that I have someone of the opposite gender whom I can talk almost everythin...
