Idiosyncrasy May 2017
We were never lost
     in each other's eyes
Because it is in each other
     that we found home.
Happiness can say hello and goodbye to you on the same day.

what we choose
Idiosyncrasy May 2017
The sun
was always there
The rain
was never meant to stay
But people
will always-
*always choose the rain.
Let's not take constant things for granted. They're not zero.

Idiosyncrasy May 2017
When we said
The more I knew
I just can't
Let you go.
What is gained won't be worth what is lost. May 10

what then
Idiosyncrasy May 2017
You are afraid to lose me
But you did not make the choice to have me
You don't want me to go but you don't want me to stay either.(11)

Idiosyncrasy May 2017
On the last page
They read the last line
The last word
So it ends
But the next chapter
Is just a page away
But sometimes
It's just better
To not know
What yet awaits.

broken pieces
Idiosyncrasy May 2017
I don't want you
to have me broken
you deserve
better than that
but I want you
to hold me
because that is like
or even much better
than being whole

*You told me
you don't want me
to have you broken
so let me be
the one who will
hold you close
and so tight
that your broken pieces
will finally be
whole again.
And yes, I do think that sometimes I don't deserve you. And yes, sometimes I do write poems for myself.

Idiosyncrasy May 2017
How wonderful it is
To tell you
I love you
But how terrifying
That when you say
You do too
*I cannot make myself
I'd really want to believe.

no accident
Idiosyncrasy May 2017
You are
the choice I made
I was sure
of the steps I took
It was like
finally standing
at the front door
opening it
there's home
and realizing
that's all
you ever need.
Loving you was not an accident.

Nothing's changed. Still you. Finally.

the show
Idiosyncrasy May 2017
When you put on your makeup
     to turn gray into vibrance
Or when the costumes you wear
     are no longer pretend
I'll be with you till the very end.
There are things to tell you but the show needed rain.

May dalawang sitwasyong
hindi ko kayang sumulat ng tula
Kapag sobrang saya

I can't write when I'm too happy or when the pain is too much to be put into words.

Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
To you
     who are afraid of heights
   Not because you're afraid to fall
   But because you're afraid
     you will not know how to get down
   Because sometimes you need to
     when you've been way way up
               You can keep chasing the stars
               But you will need to feel the ground
               Don't lose someone who makes you feel so.
Fear of heights. I have nothing to lose.

Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
I think there are people
who do not want to be happy
Because they know
happiness might go away
And once it's gone, they know
they might not reach that again
That it will just be a reminder
of what they no longer have
And they'd rather not compare
I think there are people
who do not want to be happy
*There are people like me.
I'm tired of crying. I'm scared of believing.

Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
She reaches for the bottle of ale
Just like her heart
         For she has poured out her love
    To someone who wouldn't catch it.
He didn't have to love her in return. He just had to take the love she was offering. Just that.

you have me
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
I'm not the best you'll never have,*
But I'm trying to be the best
for you,
And most of all,
You have me.
Miss missing you.

I want to be there
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
I want to be there
When the world is more than unfair
When everything just gets to your hair
When all you can do is sit and stare
I will be there.

I want to be there
When the sun decides to share
When you stand up and dare
And when you're finally sure
That you too, will be there.
I have waited and will still be waiting. Will you wait for me too?
Apr 2017 · 335
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
When what you want
Touches the ends of your fingers
Hold my hand
So you can grab it
*If it's still not enough
Hold my other hand too
You are enough.

Always Full of Noise
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
Anytime at any place
Love has come to me
Wishing me the best
And leaving me better
You too came and went
Stay, I wish you did.

For my heart aches
Underneath the strong red
Louder and louder it beats
Love, for your love.

Never will it beat for another
Only you is its song
I will always keep your music
So there is noise, now and in
Thanks for reading my poems.

Hold and don't let go
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
Even before I knew
What you really are to me
A friend, a bestfriend, a lover
I knew you are someone
I wouldn't want to leave

So hold my hand
I won't let go.
Thanks. Fear.

fighting for you
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
We were almost there
But I was so stupid to let you go
     I never wanted to
                      But I let it happen so
  Now I know
                     This is what I've been waiting for
       You are the one I've found
              The one worth fighting for
                                            I will fight for you.
Thank you for making me learn how to fight. :)

Do we have to be

first person
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
Nothing's changed.*

You're still
the first person
I'd like to share
these moments with.
Still hoping. I'll still. As promised since the very start.
Apr 2017 · 324
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
I will wait for the time
that when I look behind me,
you are no longer there
for you are ready to face everything
with me by your side.
This hope is heavier to carry than grief.

sun and world
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
"I know just one thing."
"Me too."
"What is it?"
"I know the world revolves around the sun

Last. "At the end  of the day, I hope you're still the sun."

Sana hindi na lang
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
Hindi ko sasabihing sana hindi nalang kita nakilala
Hindi ko sasabihing sana hindi kita minahal
Pero sana hindi mo nalang sinabi na mahal mo ako
*Kung sa dulo ng lahat ng ito
Hindi ka naman pala sigurado.
I Wish

I'm not going to say I wish we never met
I'm not going to say I wish I never loved you
But I wish you didn't tell me you love me
If at the end of all of this
You are not sure.

How did we end up like this?
Apr 2017 · 267
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
I did my best to love you
But you've hurt me anyway
So I tried
To keep my heart at bay
I could have gone away
If you didn't ask me to stay.

But baby, at the end of the day
Things might change their way
Yet what will matter to me
Is what you say
I could have stayed
If you didn't ask me to go away.
Almost breaking.

The Long Way Home
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
We walk along each other's beat
As dust crumbles beneath our feet
We share stories infinitely
And I always love to listen eagerly
We sing to random songs
To laugh when the lyrics go wrong
You hold my hand and do not let go
You kissed me and yes I know
**To keep these,
I'll always choose the long way home.
Reached the door. Interactive.

diamonds, tears, and words
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
Diamonds are as hard to find
As the words that should be said today
The tears come out as hard
As the words that are left for me to say.
The feelings of this are a little contrary to what I feel today. Is it too late or too early for me to say I love you?
Apr 2017 · 401
What I Want
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
I never get what I want
so I guess I'll just want
for you to not feel the same
for you to go away
just hoping
you'll stay.
Preparing myself when you leave.
Apr 2017 · 323
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
I read the words
I wrote before
And laugh
At how

stuck in time
Idiosyncrasy Apr 2017
There I was
Talking to you
About the future
You asked,
"Am I not included in your future?"
And though
I badly want to say
That of course
You are
All I said was,
"Am I even in your present?"
Getting life together when its pieces are falling apart one after the other.

In this world
where reality ends
*and fiction begins,
you started loving me.

sEcoND chance
Idiosyncrasy Mar 2017
Some things have to end
And these endings
Could be the second chance
To make things better
To make things right
MINT. All good things come to an end.

Idiosyncrasy Feb 2017
I never wanted the blue sky nor the night sky
I never wanted the sun nor the moon, even the stars
All this time, all I wanted was the Earth
All this time, I was looking for the Earth.

Someone who'll keep me on the ground
Someone who'll show me that there's so much out there
Someone who'll make me feel human
Someone who's home.

But he deserves more than a mere fragment of dark matter like me
He deserves whatever will make the rivers flow
Whatever will make the trees and flowers grow
He deserves much more.

And as I go back
Hopping from asteroids to comets to planets
I know
There will be nothing like Earth.

Simula noong minahal kita,
Hindi na ako madaling makasulat ng tula
*Dahil nakuha mo na lahat ng aking mga salita.

You have them

Ever since I loved you,
It became too hard to write poems
Because you had taken all my words.

So I may remember.

I did not list
For it's impossible to forget.

If I'm looking at
The most beautiful sunset
The brightest star
The bluest sky
And I just don't notice it
Because you're not with me.

The World
Idiosyncrasy Oct 2016
"The whole world was: too cold, too big, and too cruel."*

If you fear the world is too cold,
I promise I'll be here to keep you warm.

If it's too big for you,
I assure you, you're the only world I need.

If the world is too cruel,
I'll take the oath and make it safer.

Because there is no greater tribulation than a heart left to die cold.
"Ellen had said that her mother was afraid of the ocean, that it was too cold and too big. The sky was, too, thought Annemarie. The whole world was: too cold, too big and to cruel."- Number the Stars, Lois Lowry

From m I think.

Traffic Lights
Idiosyncrasy Oct 2016
Green light,
I go as fast as I can
As fast as the limits allow
I was trying to reach you
And I like the way the wind enters
Through the open window
I like the rush of emotions
As I take control and lose control,
Loving you feels that way.

And then I watch you
Stop to take someone in
You break rules for that one
I watch as you drive together
I drive alone following you
And then there were lots
Of U turns and bus stops
It became tiring, painful
Yellow light* flashed.

I guess this is where
I should stop before it gets worse
This is where it ends
*Red light.
I want to stop but I can't. You keep pulling me back.

Your hands
Over my eyes
I feel
Your breath
Kissing the back

Your hands
Over my eyes
They're cold
But please
Do not let go.

Your hands
Over my eyes
I see nothing
But you fill it
With colors,dyes.

Your hands
Over my eyes
I don't mind
Because now
There's only
**You and I.
Stay close please/m/.
