sa dinami-rami ng kantang inawit at pinakinggan,
sa mga kwentong inilahad at i-sinalaysay,
mga prinsipyong pinang-hawakan at natutuhan,
sa dinami-rami ng mga naging paborito ko,
gasgas man sabihin ngunit—
ikaw lamang ang pinakatumatak na paksa sa dinami-rami.
mas pinili ko na lisanin ka kaysa manatili
dahil sinta, pinagkait mo sa’kin ang pagkakataong mahalin tayong dalawa ng sabay.
here i am again,
a blank sheet of paper in front of me
a pen in my right hand
and a glass of whisky on the other,
i’m wondering how could my words ever do justice to you?
the grace on those pains,
the groove when you dance,
the lilt in your laugh,
the vestiges of nights we spent,
and i asked myself
what i’ll have left to write
when my love for you bleeds all my words out of me.
i am beginning to forget you and forgetting something you loved with all your life is such a terrifying idea.
when i met you,
there were no questions
when you left me,
there were no answers
if the universe would grant me one thing…
i wish you loved me again
like the first time i offered you sunflowers,
when your eyes locked onto mine,
when you loved me // the most.
if we’re just a little bit brave to fight for our love
