it’s midnight
and the only thing that shines
are your eyes
brighter than the moonlight
focused on mine
no more lies
a bottle of a bittersweet wine
our bodies intertwined
souls are barely naked
entangled and stranded
like scrabbling vines
there’s no reason to hide
we will live for the truth
we will love for the truth
holding hands
coping hearts
let’s have veracious conversations
and discern different salvations
—my last station

gusto ko ng halik,
‘yung totoong halik,
halik na pag dumampi ay naghahasik,
halik na itutuloy kahit hanggang sahig,
halik na dumidilig sa aking pagka-uhaw,
halik na sa bawat sandali’y pumupukaw,
ang halik na nagbibigay ng payapa at tanging bubungad tuwing gigising ako sa umaga

we’re living in a distracted world, 
with fantasies that bubbles our mind,
full of barely controlled chaos,
but then i remembered the feeling,
when your eyes locked onto mine,
focusing, listening, hearing, caring,
the comfort and pleasure you once made
is cannot be measured,
not by words, some stranger or even an event.

i am grateful for all you do;
because i can state the fact that,
when my life overwhelms and does me in,
consumes me and destroys me,
you make everything all right,
and on that moment,
you became my everything,
you are everything that i believed was right.
time, took you away. it took us for granted

some people think “i just write”,
trust me,
i do,
but they don’t know that there’s so much story
veracity,
sincerity,
heartbreaks,
landslides,
sacrifices,
c­ourage,
in between words,
in this world,
it takes me to pour everything,
in what “i just write”.
sometimes, its best to let the words introduce themselves.

i came to you alone,
lonely as a grocery store parking lot at four a.m,
a coffee in my hand,
sat down beside you,
we make jokes,
laugh echoing in every corner,
as soon as the sun is waking up,
we’re both blowing smoke rings pretending that they are haloes,
our eyes intertwine,
i asked myself,
could i believe in the magic?
it happened before my eyes. even before i realized that i was already under her spell

should i believe in the magic?

mahal,
piliin mo lang ako sa araw-araw,
pangako,
wala ka ng dapat alalahanin,
hintay ka lang,
damhin ang lamig ng hangin,
kapit ka lang,
sabay tayo tatalon sa bangin,
pikit ka lang,
magtiwala ka’t hindi ‘to alanganin,
ako ng bahala,
sapagkat kahit saan man ako mapadpad at makarating
pipiliin ko pa din makauwi sayo gabi-gabi.
pag-gising sa umaga at pag-tulog sa gabi, ikaw lang ang gustong katabi.

Duwag ka pero salamat
Salamat dahil hindi mo ako pinabayaang mahulog sa isang panandaliang saya
Hindi mo ko hinayaang mahulog sa isang kathang isip lang
Sa mga matatamis na salita na hanggang kwento lamang
Sa mga makahulugang tingin na hanggang sulyap lamang
Sa mga masasayang pag-uusap na hanggang alaala na lamang

Mga salita, tingin at kwentuhan na hindi kayang ipadama ng mga yakap at haplos
Dahil duwag ka
Dahil nandyan ka at nandito ako
Magkalayo tayong dalawa
Pinagdugtong lang ng isang pisong tumatawid sa libo-libong distansyang mahirap sundan
Dahil hindi natin kayang tawirin dahil duwag ka at ako

Oo, duwag din ako
Duwag ako katulad mo
Nakakahilo ang pagitan natin
Duwag tayong dalawang pumaroon sa espayong walang kasiguraduhan
Pero napakatapang nating hinarap ang katotohanang nakakabit sa atin ang mga balakid

Na nandyan ka at nandito ako
Malayong-malayo
Itong paang nagpipigil sa ating lumutang sa ligayang hatid ng mapangahas na damdamin
Hatid ng masarap na pantasyang hawak ko ang mga pisngi mo o na malaya kong natititigan ang kislap ng mga mata mo
Lagi tayong nakamulat at hindi kayang pumikit nang matagalan

Dahil duwag ka at duwag ako
Duwag ka dahil hindi ka lumaban para sa atin
At duwag ako dahil hindi kita i-pinaglaban.
