Short story

Her: I love you.

Him: …
 (and she cried in silence…)

You Changed

​The year changed. And so you did. But even before the clock struck 12 midnight to 2017, you changed. 
A change I dared not wish to happen. But somehow did, and became a nightmare to my silent reverie. A change I dared not wish to bring me to tears and madness. 
But you did.
Ours was a ‘fast and furious’ romance. A bad romance? Yes, some might thought that way. But for me, it was one of my happiest moments. Being with you was priceless. If only I could stop the time when I was with you and keep it still, I would. 
I wondered what’s on your mind and wanted to know how you exactly feel. Was your heart still beating for me? Was I still a priority? Because again, you changed. 
You promised things you were not able to fulfill. It seemed normal and mundane for you to easily break such promises. Been doing it for years my dear?
You did not say anything. But your actions were howling at me. Still I gave you the benefit of the doubt. But to be honest, I gave it more to myself than you. I gave myself a chance to understand you and your behavior. You were so near yet so far for me to reach. Just talk.
Because again, you changed! 

Say YES

My story is not so different from yours. Mine is a little edgy, but how should I know yours isn’t? I put myself in your shoe. What would I do if I am in your situation, and what would you do if you are in mine? Would we do the same thing or do it differently then?

We have different perspectives in life, and our reaction to the end result of every decision might be different.

You may take it nice, I may not.
You may take it rough, I may not.

Learn to say yes. Yes to things that would make us better than who we are now. Take risks and create our own path. A new path we ourselves set foot first. Say yes! 

A Bliss

Hear that weird sound?
Thought you might hear it from where you are,
Surprised, it’s me you found…
Foolish smiles, and perfect scars!
What a bliss!

Crack–
Broken glass? No, it’s a pot
of gold from leprechaun’s.
This is no same spot,
From the old miserable taunts,
And aches, and lies and fears…
What a bliss!

Freed pigeons, that noise
they make of pure happiness,
Evident on transparent moist
Against thin glass, careless–
Smile of a perfect mouth,
What a bliss!

Pakiusap sa Buwan

moon1Madilim ang gabi, malamig ang simoy ng hangin
Kinakausap ang langit na ika’y bumalik na sa akin
Sa tala nakatingala, nangingilid ang mga luha
Pinagdudugtong mga bituin ginuguhit ang iyong mukha

Liwanag ng buwan, gabay ko patungo sa’yo
Kinakausap ang hangin na ipadala ang init ng yakap ko
Binabalikan sa isipan, ang tamis ng nakaraan
Binubulong sa sarili “bakit mo siya pinakawalan?”

Ngiti at boses mo, ako’y nangungulila
Sa init ng iyong halik ramdam ang pag-aalaga
Dalangin ko lang ay muli kang makapiling
Malungkot na puso’y hinihintay ka na dumating.
