Sa tuwing makikita ko
Ang mga ngiti mo
Wari ko'y matutumba ako
Lagi ka na lang pinagmamasdan
Mula dito sa malayo

Tumitingin...
Tumititig...
Basta masulyapan ka lamang
Masaya na ako

Nagtitiis...
Nag-aabang...
Nagbabakasakaling ikaw din ay mapatingin

Hindi mo alam kung gaano ako kasaya
Kapag nakikita kita
Ayos lang kahit na may kasama kang iba
Alam ko namang wala akong pag-asa
Kaya dito na lang ako sa malayo
Pagmamasdan ang mga ngiti mo

Magtitiis...
Mag-aabang...
Magbabakasakaling ako rin ay makikita mo

If you have a shot you better not waste it
Instead we take shots and get wasted

This is for everyone who mistook me for just another clone
Falling for someone you don't entirely know,
You are tirelessly entering an endeavor you are to lose,
You give your entire being to an entirely different entity,
Who entices you with flashes of brilliance and mistery.
You effortlessly exert effort for a hopeless cause.
You are endlessly waiting for an eternity that will not come,
You picked a battle you have lost long before you could have won.
To fall in love with someone you barely know, don't do it, just please, don't.

They say "Falling in love is a beautiful thing"
Well I say "Sleeping is the best"
Well sleeping is the best for me :D

I've always known that I can't write happy poems
happy poems are inspiring.
happy.
unsure.
a fantasy.
and there's something about insincerity that disrupts the beauty of poetry

so I write about pain, and wounds, and melancholy
I write about it so often that I have become fluent in the language of depression
I can tell you the whole history of every scar
and I can show how crippled my heart has become

but I can't tell you the last time I was happy
or if I was ever happy.
happiness feels so foreign in my mouth
but the thorns in my throat feel like home.
a broken and dysfunctional home,
but home nonetheless.

so keep this in mind, beloved one,
I would love you with my broken heart
but it would never change the number of poems I would want to write when I look at you.

Ang dami ko nang nagawang tula,
Pero masasabi ko na isa ito sa paborito kong nagawa,

Bumalik tayo sa oras,
Sa oras na nakalipas,
Habang ako'y naglalakbay,
Nakita ko ang mga panahon na ako'y sumablay,

Natawa nalang ako sa aking nakita,
Nadinig ko ang mga mapapait at matatamis na salita,
Nakita ko ang mga taong humulma sakin,
Nais ko sana silang tanungin.

Ngunit hindi sapat ang aking oras,
Sa oras na lahat ng larawan ay nagsimula ng kumupas,
Nakita kita na paparating,
Hindi ko napigilan na tumitig at mapatingin.

Oo itong mga matang ito napatitig sayo,
Sabay bulong sa hangin na sana maging tayo.
May mga panahong napapaisip ka at napapahiling na sana sabihin niya ang mga salitang matagal mo ng hinihintay. "Mahal din kita"

Tanghali na at nais ko sana magsulat,
Ibuhos ang lahat ng aking gustong ipagtapat,
Ngunit wala, walang lumabas ni isang letra o salita,
Nahihirapan na kahit hindi halata.

Isang lapis at papel ang aking hawak,
Ang daming bumubulabog sa aking utak,
Nais ko sanang iparating sayo,
Binighani mo ang puso ko.

Kaso ang hirap, ang hirap hirap isulat ng aking nadarama,
Na parang magiging katawatawa o masyadong madrama,
Hindi ko alam kung paano pero ito ang naisip ko,
Naisip kong paraan para masabi sayo.

Ang pagsulat. Dahil ito ang aking bibig,
Ito ang tanging paraan para mailabas ko ang aking hinanakit o pag-ibig,
Nakakatawa man o ang "corny" pakinggan,
Pero kahit ganoon pa man, ipagpapatuloy ko sa paraan na makakagaan.

Makakagaan sa akin at sa mga taong makakabasa,
Na hindi ito sinulat ng basta basta,
Isang blankong papel at isang ordinaryong katulad ko,
Isinusulat ang lahat ng mensahe sa paraan na alam ko.

Gagabihin nanaman kaka-isip,
At bibisita nanaman  ang mga talang gabi gabing sumisilip,
Nakakatuwa dahil sila ang laging kausap,
Habang natutulog ang mga ulap.

Isang blankong papel ang aking hawak,
Walang kawala sa magulo kong utak
