let's burn
fallacies Apr 2018
our love was a candle
that burned out a long time ago

but the wax just melted
and did not disappear

so let's mold a new candle
from the remains that melted;
let it burn again and again
so we'll feel the warmth
of love all over again

you were a beautifully constructed sentence
you were complete in thought and made sense

i wanted to be with you
i wanted to be a part of you

i thought i could be a period
and show you you how things end for us

then again, how about a comma
so we could pause and think of what's next

i also thought about being a question mark
so we'd both ask what we do not know

or an exclamation mark
to let your immense feelings show

an apostrophe maybe
to show the world that i belong to you

quotation marks, you see
i would enclose your brightest ideas

what about a colon
so we could begin a list of your dreams

maybe a semi colon
to join our common parts and themes

but i'll choose to be an ellipsis
so only i, can know and hide
some of your words and secrets

on how ironic it is to be me

where you are the reason
why sadness dawns upon my chest
yet, you are also the only solution

tayo (us)
fallacies Dec 2019
kinuha mo ang aking mga kamay- tinitigan mo ako
at sinabi mo, 'halika, lumayo tayo dito,' kaya tayo'y nagtungo
sa lugar na walang sakit at nakapanlulumong,
mga problema na ating dinaranas dati;
at nuon ding panahon na iyon,
nahanap natin ang tunay na kasiyahan
sa piling ng isa't isa, walang kamalayan
sa ibang tao sa paligid, pagkat magkasama na tayo;
wala nang problema na maaaring magdala ng bagyo

masaya na tayo, sa simpleng mga bagay na mayroon tayo
mga bagay na hindi man bago,
hindi man sapat para masabing masaya, pero alam ko,
ramdam ko, na masaya na tayo

teka, ano ito?
Teka, bakit nawawala na
ang lahat ng nasa paligid natin
TEKA LANG! -sambit ng mga labi ko
yun na ang huling nasabi ko sayo

akala ko, masaya na tayo
sa mga simpleng bagay na  mayroon tayo,
mga bagay na hindi man bago
ngunit ngayon, bumalik na ang simple sa kumplikado
hinahanap ngayon ang saya sa salitang 'tayo'

pero nagising ako;
at kahit anong pilit na ipikit muli ang aking mga mata
at subukang mahimbing sa kaisipan na mayroong ikaw at ako
huli na ang lahat, di ko na maibalik ang panandaliang suyo
ng minsang nanaginip ako na mayroong tayo
(rough english translation)

you took both my hands- you looked at me
and said, 'let us go, far away from here,' and so we did;
to a place where pain would never find us,
where no problem would ever exist like the ones we had before;
and at that moment
we found true happiness
in the comfort of each other's arms,
oblivious to the people around us, for we are now together
no more problems that would bring us storms

we were happy and content, with the simple things
that we have, things that may not be new; things that
may not be enough to consider ourselves happy, but i know
for i feel, that together- we are happy

wait, what is this?
why can't i make up a single detail from your face
Wait, why is everything fading
that was the last thing that i have told you

i thought that we were already happy and content,
with the simple things that we have, things that may not be new;
but now everything was the same as before,
what was simple became complicated again
desperately looking for the happiness in the word 'us'

but i woke up
and no matter how hard i try to close my eyes, and
try to fall asleep with the thought of me and you
it was too late, i could never bring back the temporary comfort
of that one time that i had a dream that there was an us

~when i start running, let go okay?
you said as i held the kite between my hands
how carefree and happy we were before
okay, but i will still go after you
i said as you started to run and go
how clueless you were with what i said

how time flew when we were together
but life's not always smooth, remember?
we started to fall apart,
creating distance between us.
then you felt that enough was enough;
you said you wanted to run and leave,
but i persistently stayed and followed you.

you asked me why i was still loving you

remember what you asked me before?
you said that, when you start running, i'd let go;
i said okay, but i'd still go after you
you see, i'd let go of the problems we faced;
and i'd still go after you and be by your side,
even at our worst days

I asked you for a second,
you gave me a minute of silence;
and with each passing tick of the clock,
my heart gets used to the violence

I asked you for a day,
you gave me a week of darkness;
and with each passing day and night,
my heart gets used to the emptiness

I asked you for a month,
you gave me a year of slumber;
and with each and every passing season,
my heart gets used to the fire.

If I asked you for a century;
will you give me a lifetime of misery?
Or with each passing millennia;
you'll let my heart, get used to the dementia.

but i can make words
write their own stories
paint their own pictures
sing their own songs

maybe the reason why
he explains himself too much,
reiterating what he wants to do;
is not because he is guilty of something
but maybe because
he's been guilty all his life;

and now that he knows he's not,
maybe he wants someone
to believe in what he says

because he is having a hard time
believing it, himself

stay for the things we've been through
and the stuff we talked about;
the years we spent together
and the plans we laid out

before i go, could you stop me from walking away?
walking away from you, and the future
that we haven't even walked to yet;
and this, very beautiful picture
of goals and dreams we set

before i go, could you accompany with me?
accompany me through this road of life
that we'd walk with each other again;
and face every single day and strive
for our love, every now and then

never the same soul twice
fallacies Jan 2021
as the void in my soul
pulls me towards its center
with both hands tied together,
i can't seem to remember the last time i held yours
and it seems that forever has passed by
no— it's been an eternity
since mine last held grasp of your soul
and had conversations with the billions of pieces
that make it up—
tiny bits of your identity
i once all knew

i don't seem to know whether they're still part of you—
or has your soul been shattered too much
that more pieces have made their presence
making up the very essence of you
that mine lost the opportunity to touch

what i do know
every piece that make up your soul
is part of a perfectly-fitted-never-ending puzzle—
an ever-evolving beautiful masterpiece
no one could ever take apart

i gave you my company
i gave you comfort through every moment life has mistreated you
away from all the unnecessary pain, stress, and heartbreaks

and i was alright

i gave you company and i gave you things you never even knew you wanted
i gave you comfort through every moment life has mistreated you

i gave you company and comfort through the cold harsh night

but as soon as the first sight of light in the morning embraced your face
the moment you opened your eyes...
