Ang nais ko lang naman ay iyong maging tahanan
Sa tuwing ika’y nasasaktan, nanlalamig, at nahihirapan
Kaya’t bakit ako’y ginawang panandaliang silungan?
Iniwan at kinalimutan nang natapos ang ulan
Kasabay ng paglabo ng ulan ay ang kasabay na paglaho mo rin

The greatest pain is felt
When the physical tears are gone
And they think that you are fine
‘Cause they don’t see the broken soul
That’s weeping deeply inside
I’ll be aight

your name is
forbidden in
my mouth
or in my heart
because when
i think about

i'll cry a little more,
hurt a little stronger
love a little softer
because you no longer
make me feel sober

i'm drunk on the
memory of you
if only i could chase you with pizza but shots don't work like that

I was told long ago
That my light would attract others.
Maybe that's why I love moths so much.
Fluttering in and out of lives, maybe I am the light and a moth.

I have a lot to say
But honestly,
I’m okay
Well, barely

I’ll get through this
I know I will
I’ve felt this before;
This cold night chill

There’s a lot in my mind
Everything’s haywire
I’m trying to find,
Find something,
But I’m tired

Even this poem’s going haywire
It’s hazy, and messy
Just like me
“Yeah, I’m okay”

We both live
Two worlds apart

I live, not worrying about what tomorrow brings for right now, everything’s okay
He lives, lonely every day,
but holding on for a better someday

I live for what is here, close to me, something I can reach, someone I can touch
He lives for what will be, far away, something he will reach, someone he will touch

I live for the daily laughters, the ongoing memories, afraid of what is to come
He lives for that better day, somewhere far away, forgetting to live in what is now

We both live two worlds apart
That’s why we forget to meet
In the in-between
Of what is now, and what is to come
A rough draft of what is on my mind

Don’t worry, it’s okay
To hit the pause button
Whenever it’s too much

You can’t hit replay
You can’t fast forward
But you can take a break

Then you hit play again
When you’re ready
When you’re better

So you can fix what
You wished to replay
So you can live on
And move forward
It’s okay to rest sometimes when it all gets a little too much
