Cuts and Graces in Need of Spaces

Heart’s tugged 
Head’s confused
And sleep won’t fall

It’s so familiar
Yet so uncomfortable

Knife’s been thrust
I’m being sent to the grave
I know I have to be brave
Or all else will flounder Continue reading

There is Jealousy in Love

When love and jealousy collide
Soon you’ll realize
That when a feeling is really right
You find that you cannot put up a fight

When love gets in the way
You’ll find that you cannot stay away
But when a feeling is right, soon you’ll realize
It’s there so stay and display in your eyes

But you cannot define
When a feeling is really divine
When a feeling is really right
That which sets your heart into light Continue reading

Clouds of Dreams on my Special Day

It was this same day last week when a significant number in my life changed, a new year had begun, new life, new hope, new dreams.

Dreams and visions floating in the distant innermost depth of one’s soul, lingering… clinging… wringing… waiting to be found and realized in a visionary’s mysterious being. And just like how clouds float in the distant skies, these dreams amazingly exposed their beauty on such lovely day of my life.

And so here are some of the myriad images captured by the scenic speck of my eyes in the glimpse of a minuscule lens of a wary traveller. Continue reading

Ang Nahanap kong Liwanag sa Kadiliman

Gabi na naman. Magpapaalam na naman si haring araw at papalit si kaibigang buwan. Ewan ko ba kung bakit gustong-gusto ko sa tuwing sumasapit ang gabi. Weirdo nga siguro ako kung tatawagin, pero pakialam ko, lahat naman ng tao ay may kanya-kanyang ka-weirdohan. Mas weirdo nga sigurong matatawag ang taong walang ka-weirdohan.

Ayos na sana lahat. Ang mga tao nasa kani-kanilang bahay na. Wala ng gumagala, maliban na lang kung piyesta at marami kang mapupuntahan na mga pakulo ni Mayor sa plaza. Ganito dito sa probinsya. Tahimik hindi gaya sa siyudad na ang gabi ay tila nagiging umaga na kung ingay lang ang pagbabasehan. Dito ganitong oras (7pm) nagpapahinga na ang mga tao. Magluluto. Kakain ng kanilang hapunan habang nagkukuwentuhan tungkol sa buhay-buhay nila. Pagkatapos ay magbubukas ng telebisyon at manonood ng balita. Magkukunwari na may pakialam sila sa mga nangyayari sa bansa, na kung pakikinggan mo ay wala naman silang ginawa kundi ang magreklamo at punain ang pagkakamali ng ibang taong nasa balita. Bakit ba kasi hindi na lang nila tingnan ang sarili nila bago ang iba, baka sakaling may magawa pa sila sa ikauunlad ng bansa natin. Continue reading

Thoughts of a Hopeless Romantic

As much as possible, I’d like to avoid indulgence in personal anecdotes of love. But recently, I’ve been finding myself torn asunder by the winged creature we usually call Cupid. I’ve decided to jot down some thoughts on the whole thing – not getting too personal, – and see what everyone else thinks.

The Fall

After watching the sunset on our rooftop yesterday illustrating the beauty of color, only to be soon turned into gray, disappearing into darkness, I couldn’t help but think of relationships. Continue reading

Ang buhay ay parang ‘Pigsa’ lamang

Tak. Tak. Tak.

Tunog ng keyboard ng computer habang ako’y nagpipissbook.

Kay aga-aga kompyuter na agad ang aking kaharap, pero di bale, hindi naman ata ito isang walang kwentang bisyo – kung iisipin nga sa panahon ngayon, mas inaabangan pa ata ng kabataan ang nangyayari sa kanilang “pissbook” kesa sa balitang napapanood sa “T-Veeeyyy Patrol.”

Tingnan mo kung di dahil sa passbook di ko pa malalaman na ikakasal na pala ang naglaho kong kaibigan na si Aling Nena, sa kanyang ikapitong asawa. Hindi lang yan, napag-alaman ko ring may bagyong paparating dito sa Gensan. Kaya naman pala malamig at tila ba ayaw pakita ni haring araw dito sa amin.

Teka, tama na nga. Hindi naman talaga tungkol sa pissbook ang blog post ko na ito. Continue reading
