Forget-me-not
M e l l o Apr 2022
i'll forget the memories i made with you
love will fade little by little
but
i haven't told you yet the name of the flower
when you asked me to identify from the bouquet
you brought on our very first date

i know that if there's life there's death
its up to us how we live in between
i spend my days having coffee with you
and yours to watch movies with me
flowers grow from the seeds then it withers in time

don't forget me i said
i hurt myself and cried more
i wish I was the one who'd say to 'forget me
Because honestly I can't say 'don't let me go
Forget-me-not
but
i will keep on living positively from now on

you don't have to say 'thank you to me
because i feel the same with you
but
i wish you didn't told me to 'forget you
please 'don't let me go
Forget-me-not


i'll forget the memories i made with you
love will fade little by little
i'll keep on living positively
Forget-me-not
Forget-me-nots symbolize true love and respect. When you give someone these tiny blooms, it represents a promise that you will always remember them and will keep them in your thoughts. (source: Google)

Please Say No
M e l l o Feb 2020
a friend asked me today
she asked me if I know you
I said yes
questions poured in
in the end she told me
shes into you
she knew what happened to us
and said sorry many times
but I said that was okay
it was all in the past
she said you were nice
I smiled as she told me stories
about you as if I never knew
I pretended to be awed and curious
and finally she told me you asked her out


That's okay
I'm not that hurt anyways
stop saying sorry 'cause
we were through long time ago
but please be a good girlfriend
I said

I can't honestly tell her that
deep inside I'm still not over you
thoughts about you kept me awake at night
and I still kept the things I received from you
but instead I cheered for her
and tell her to take care of you

I guess you'll never know
that I'm still loving you
this heart of mine wasn't ready to let you go
how I wish I can tell her
"please Say No"
I'm not ready to see you with someone else
I hope she'll say No

oras ko na inilaan
kay daling nalimutan
panahon na isinugal
sa pagmamahal na
wala palang katiyakan
ngayo'y nanagnaghoy na
sana'y wag **** iwan

oras ko na inilaan
mga bagay na
kay dali kong binitawan
na walang pag alinlangan
para mapasaya ka lang
huli na nang malaman
pinaglaruan mo lang

para sana sayo to
pero ang dali **** tumalikod
naglakbay ka sa kabilang daan
at bigla na lang naglaho
na parang bula
hindi man lang nagbabala
sana nagpasabi ka
nang ako mismo naghatid sayo

hindi na sana ako
nagbigay ng labis
ngayon ako'y naghihinagpis
sa pag ibig na ipinilit
kong ihandog
sa taong hindi naman
ako ang kailangan

sana nagpasabi ka
nang mabawasan man lang
ang pagtitiis
sa panahon na halos
buong buhay ko
akalain **** kay dali kong
ibigay para sayo
kung sana man lang
umalis ka ng mas maaga
nang hindi pa gaano kalalim
ang nadarama
nang maagapan ko pa
ang sugat na ngayo'y
hanggang buto
tagos sa kaluluwa
ang pagdurusa

sana matapos na ang
araw gusto ko na
magpahinga

Too much love
M e l l o Dec 2019
I remembered the day you asked me what it's like to fall in love
and now that I think of it
it is the tears that I try to hold back
when I won't admit I'm broken
it's like a whirlwind that picks me up from where you were and throw me somewhere I've never been
and it was like a match sticks when lit can burn a forest to ashes with a slightest touch

"I can't promise you that love is beautiful, but I can promise you it was worth it." I answered
at the back of my head I know
much like of life
love can **** you

frostbite
M e l l o Nov 2019
i'm shivering
as i wait for you
the cold is unkind
to the strangers like me
i look at my watch
to remind myself of the time
you were late
but i can wait
the freezing breeze was
unforgiving
it bore right through me
as i wait for you
passersby would look at me
sometimes they'd greet me
or ask me why i'm standing
outside here in the cold
i just replied with a smile
or sometimes i would say
" i'm waiting for someone "
knowing that you'll come soon right?
of course you will
i'm shivering
but much more erratic
still waited for you
i looked at my watch again
it says 9:00 pm
when you said you would come at noon
the night grew darker
as the other little shops
starting to close
i'm still standing here
outside in the cold
it's cold
the weather
the let down
it all feels the same
i'm shivering
but you never came

Time's Up
M e l l o Nov 2019
we were sitting silently
on a dim lit park
and you kept on glancing
on your phone
"it's just a text, chill" i joked
but you answered way seriously
"im waiting for her to reply,
for me it was much more than
just a text from the screen"
that moment i know
ill no longer sit with you in the park

I'm an Alcoholic
M e l l o Nov 2019
I write like an alcoholic
drinking the last drop of ink
from my pen
I asked a stranger
to lend me
some cash
for a pen
a stack of paper
to start writing again
I walk like Im drunk on words
drinking two thirds
of my shot for one second
do you reckon?
I'll be able to pay for this?
or will it cost me my life instead?
I can't stop drinking
honestly, I can't stop thinking
these words
I consider my thoughts
when I'm sober
filling up the blanks
of a memory
I try to subdue
I'll give thanks to the
bartender
whose drinks makes me
want more
hopefully I can render
some explanation
for my jumbled up words
written on a napkin
it so happens that
I found something to rhyme
to finish this line

I write like an alcoholic
maybe tomorrow's painful hangover
may be the reason not to write again

gains and losses
M e l l o Nov 2019
there's this pattern
that I keep on going circles at
for everything I gained
I lost something in return

M e l l o Oct 2019
tell me
what went wrong
was it because
i wasn't that strong
or it was that
i forgot to write you love songs
or maybe
i waited for you far too long
in between your words
you pronounced "him" differently
i wondered if there was a difference
between him and me
that so much
your eyes turn to him
and never me

Elicit Recollection
M e l l o Oct 2019
old wounds rip open
those empty words from your mouth
the tear in my flesh
pulling me apart
inside out

cuts on the edges of my fingers
coloring the pages
words and sketches
of the notebook that I owned

bruises on the cover
its hue like a gentle blue
all this things inside
reminds me of you

what a great affliction
a euphoria for the twisted
cure this brain
with the sound
of your name

Poltergeist
M e l l o Oct 2019
time is just a fragment we created
it never existed before until
we draw it into our lives
never affected how we saw each other
until we spoke
its very existence started

you spun time in between your fingertips
you stretched the time between replies
until it went from seconds to hours
months to years

you did it so gracefully that one
can consider it as an art

broken boys
with missing hearts

they struggle
just to keep it all inside

I came across
such an indescribable feeling
which I thought
was beautifully breathtaking
and desirably mind blowing
but
when I feel deeper
it became
agonizing
I was asked if how do I define the word love. Maybe this will work. Have a great weekend.

i would finally
find a home

I dont know why. I guess I'm not that bulletproofed. Potd. Sept. 23

M e l l o Sep 2019
i started writing
as way
of decluttering
thoughts in my head,
wounds that

then someone asked me
what will happen after you heal?
maybe when the time comes
i'll gladly burn all
these
pile of papers
to
the ground

M e l l o Sep 2019
the rain
starts to drop
his fists clenched
his eyes was red
he cursed the ground
muttering the words
fate is wicked
screams unheard
he cursed the ground
called you stupid
your silence cut deep
the pain he tried to keep
he remain tight-lipped
yet inside he wails and wept
how dare you throw away the life
that others struggles to keep?
as the rain stop
he asked the ground
why did you commit
such selfish act?

At 25,
you'll read old conversations
at night
while having coffee
you'll think about your life,
how you never get enough sleep
and
thinking ways how to survive
work days until weekend
it feels like kind of a routine
but that's okay,
you'll get out of it someday.

Ayan Ka Na Naman
M e l l o Aug 2019
Ayan ka na naman
dumadaan sa 'king harapan
pero kahit na minsan
hindi mo ako tinitingnan

Ayan ka na naman
alam kong ika'y nasa malapitan
pero kahit na minsan
hindi ko kayang ika'y lapitan

Ayan ka na naman
bakit lagi kang nasa isipan
pero kahit na minsan
hindi kita kayang kalimutan

Alam ko naman
presensya ko hindi mo maramdaman
dahil palihim lang kitang
tinitingnan sa malayuan

Ayan ka na naman
sana matapos na ang kahibangan
dahil kahit na minsan ay
di mo ako makikilala kailanman

Nagbago Ka Na
M e l l o Aug 2019
"Nagbago ka na"
salitang pagbinitiwan
ng mga taong mahalaga sayo
sobrang laki ng epekto
kadalasan huhulaan ko pa
kung masama ba ang pagbabagong
nakikita nila sa pagkatao ko
o maganda ba naman ang dulot nito
hindi masabi ng harapan
kaya idinadaan na lang
sa maliliit na komento
ibubulong kuno para kahit paano
hindi marinig at iwas argumento
pahapyaw lang pero
tagos hanggang buto
ang tanong, mali bang magbago?
mga pagbabagong
sinanay ng panahon
pagsubok sa pananampalataya
at temptasyon
sa huli ay natuto din ng mga leksyon
pero kahit ano pa sabihin niyo
kung kilala niyo talaga ako
ako pa din naman 'to
may ilang nagbago
pero lahat naman tayo
dumaan sa ganito
hinahanap yung totoong silbi
ng buhay na 'to?


Oo nagbago na ako.
Nahanap ko na kasi ang sagot
sa huling tanong ko.

Pakunwari
M e l l o Aug 2019
pilit na ngiti
ang iginawad ko sayo
sabay sabi ng pangalan mo
nanginginig na mga kamay
nakatago sa likod ko
ang mga daga sa loob ko'y
nagwawala
ganito ang epekto mo sa sistema ko
hindi lang halata
ayaw ko kasing makita mo
kung gaano ako kahina
pagdating sayo
ang mga kalamnan ko
na halos nanamlay
nang makita ang mga ngiti mo
kahit asiwa
marinig ang boses mo
maliban sa telepono
andito ka sa harapan ko
puso ko'y kabado
utak ko na blangko
kung ano sasabihin ko
ang boses kong pagal kasi nerbiyoso
hindi ko alam kong ano gagawin ko
habang naglalakad tayo
tinatanong mo ako
kung kamusta na ba ako?
ang sagot ko sayo ay
ayos lang ako pero
kung alam mo lang
hindi ako sigurado sa sagot ko
matatawa ka at sasabihin **** nagbibiro ako
sana nga biro lang ang lahat ng 'to
sa sobrang seryoso ng nararamdaman ko
natatakot ako para sa sarili ko
nahuhulog ako ng sobra sobra sayo
hindi ko alam
kung kaya kong bumangon
sa kababagsakan kong bangin ng emosyon
na sobrang lalim na para bang pati katinuan ko
kaya nitong higopin pati kaluluwa ko
Ah sobra na
hindi ko man lang naisip kong
pareho ba tayo nang nadarama?
sana naman umamin ka
pipilitin ko na lang itatago ang lahat ng 'to
baka sakali hanggang sa dulo ng buhay ko
maiibabaon ko sa likod
ng pagpapanggap ko
na sinabi kong ayos lang ako
nung kinamusta mo
mga ngiting pilit na nakikita mo
kay tagal kong ininsayo
sa harap ng salamin
habang walang tigil sa pagpatak
ang mga luha ko

mahirap makipagsapalaran
sa sitwasyon na alam mo
umpisa pa lang ikaw ang talunan
mga bagay na dapat dina dahan dahan
sabi ko sayo wag mo masyadong galingan
pwede naman tumigil muna saglit
wag papadala sa sobrang galit
huminahon ka at mag isip
baka sakaling mawala ang inip
Poem of the day. Aug 10. Been dealing with a lot stress lately. Kaloka.
