Almost (My built-up wall 1 of 9)

My heart has always been an empty place of people who have unsure commitments —people who see love as nothing but just a trial-and-error. And maybe that’s why I grew so terrified reopening it because the echoes of my heartbreak kept knockin...

Vacation Romances Don’t Last

Thoughts flowing early in the morning Until very late in the evening. Endless seas of white And blue bubbles and pings. Who thought that you from a different nation Could hold deep conversations. Sixteen hours of flig...

I, You & Her

To you, While we listen to the same song I think of you You think of her When we read the same sweet poems I think of you You think of her I tell my friends about you and you tell me, your friend, about her I tell...

Salamat sa hindi pagpili sa akin

Ikaw ang unang naghatid ng mensahe Ikaw ang unang naghatid ng mga imahe Ikaw ang unang nakaisip ng ating tawagan Ikaw ang unang nakaisip na ako'y tawagan Ikaw ang unang nagbigay ng atensyon Sayo galing lahat ng yon Sayo Ikaw ang un...

Alternate Universe

In an alternate universe, would we be? In an alternate universe, would we be together? Would we be holding each other's hands and looking into each other's eyes? Would we be kissing and dancing in the rain? Would we be ticking thing...

Passers-by

I was introduced to Boiling Waters by a friend of mine. I thought that this seems to be a good place to share my thoughts and feelings. I wrote this piece at 2 am wondering if people ever stay or are we all just passers-by... When walking i...

Mahal kong Tala

  Mahal kong Tala,  Mali ka. Hindi kita nakasalubong upang sa dulo ng kalsada, ako ay liliko sa kanan at ikaw sa kaliwa. Mali ka. Hindi panahon ang makakahadlang upang tayo ay mapalapit sa isa't isa at maging magkaibigan. M...

Things I’m afraid of

Things I'm afraid of I fear the day to come without seeing you I fear the day to come not hearing your voice I fear the day to come not smelling you I fear the day to come not feel you I fear the day to come not to hold you ...

Love in figures

When I was a kid i thought of love in a figure of a prince charming who was willing to save me from all kinds of danger. When I was grade school, i thought if love in the form of my childhood crush who sent me cheesy notes from the back of...

I asked God

Slowly seeing life and him. When I ask him for patience, he didn't give me the things I want for me to learn how to wait. When I ask him for strength, he took away the things and people that are not meant in my life for me to learn to...

Accepting the fact that I’ll never ever be that man

I admit that I have something on you, but I'll never push myself to make you choose me back. In some cases, I'll try to be that man, but due to unfortunate luck, I fall short of being that man. I pledge that I like you on a second time arou...

Set her Free

Stop messing around with a woman's life when you don't have the courage to talk about how you truly feel about her. At the end of the day, she will get hurt. You know you see it coming, but you're playing around the bush. Be honest about w...

I thought I was the one. Ibang friend pala natin!

Our closeness and friendship was unexpected. Hindi kita gusto noon, kaso you started sharing your visions and problems until 3 am hanggang na fall ako sayo. Linihim kong may pagtingin ako sayo for the 4 years na magbestfriend tayo. Ang say...

Lihim ng Dapit hapon

Hindi ko malaman kung ano ang dahilan Bakit sa dami, ikaw ang napiling pagmasdan Ano ba ang meron ka at hindi na maalis pa ang titig ng mga matang ikaw ang laging nais makita. Panahon ang kabalikat sa nararamdaman ng puso kong aligag...

I just realized that I was immature too.

Sorry if I told you, "I think your not that matured enough." Maybe it was me who was not that matured yet in dealing with a sprouting relationship. Now I have seen life in a much greater perspective, and thanks to you. We may meet/not soon...

Goodbye to me being in love

With every simple "Hi" I'm more attracted to you I can sense your scent in the spring breeze All we did was pass each other yet I was thrilled. I wished you would have turned around, a wish that I hid from you. I should be used to seeing y...

A reminder to a good man

I love you and it’s wonderful I never thought I would fall in love again. Sometimes, I wonder if this love is an illusion or maybe I am just denying the fact that someone like you caught my attention.  I think I love you and I can’t f...

Until the time will favor us.

I'll see you on our next season, sana sa susunod na pagkakataon pabor na sa atin ang panahon. Sana sa susunod nating buhay tayo naman, yung ikaw at ako. Sa ngayon wala akong magagawa kundi hayaan kang maging masaya sa piling niya. Hindi ko ...

To the Person Who Stole and Broke my Heart, Thank you!

This may sound weird but I just want to say Thank you. I loved you truthfully with all I can give. I loved how you snore through the screen on those long night talks we had, watching you from the other side of the world. You get mad with...

Hindi na ako nagtanong, hinayaan ko na lang.

Bakit pa ako magtatanong kung halata naman? Bakit ko pa itatanong kung "bakit?" o kung "sino?" kung alam ko naman na kahit tanungin kita nang paulit-ulit hindi ako ang magiging sagot mo. Iba pala kapag ikaw lang ang nakakadama, yung ikaw la...

Mahal Kita, Basta

My First Life

This There are many things I did and I might do for the first time, To live, to grow up, to have my heart broken, to move on and even die. At some point in my life, I did hope not to make mistakes I will certainly regret ...

MILES APART

MILES APART The eyes may not see the beauty of affection. The ears may not hear the whisper of love. The hand may not reach to hold you near.  But, the heart feels different sending you to me even though you are miles apart.

Sa mundong kulang ang pagibig

Sa mundong walang katiyakan. Sa mundong nabalot na ng kasinungalingan. Mangapa at madapa ka man. Pilitin mo pa din bumangon at huwag mananatili sa kadiliman.   Sa mundong hinagpis at luha. Sa mundong mapanakit at wala...

An Open Letter

1 Juan 4:18 "Walang kasamang takot ang pag-ibig at pinapawi ng ganap na pag-ibig ang anumang pagkatakot. Hindi pa ganap ang pag-ibig ng sinumang natatakot, sapagkat ang takot ay kaugnay ng parusa. Tayo'y umiibig sapagkat ang Diyos ang unang umibig sa atin."

Tara kape, pag-usapan natin kung bakit hindi tayo ang pinili.

Para sa bawat muntik, akala at halos. Tara kape! In life full of choices you're not the choice. Hindi ikaw ang pinili. Bakit? Kasi hindi ka pang more than enough. Sakto lang. Hindi ikaw ang best, na kahit ikaw tong laging nandyan para sa...
