Sprout.
Meruem Sep 2
Imagine the life of a plant,
Harmonizing oneself with nature.
Some are in a conrete jungle,
Slowly growing out of the pavement.

Imagine your life,
And it's continuous search for meaning.
Some days might be rough,
Yet you'll manage to get through.

RE: You Never Loved Her.
Meruem Aug 25
"You never loved her."
These words are marked on you;
Like a deep wound in your heart,
Like a sad song in your head.

I loved you, and I'll always do.
All the hours that we spent,
And everytime that our hearts skipped
A beat for every sweet nothings.

I loved you, that's why I came back.
I loved you like the moon loves the sun;
I was outshined by your light,
Yet all I wanted was to meet you in the middle.

I loved you,
Because you were my world.
And it really breaks my heart
Because you still think that I only used you.

I loved you;
I returned so I can mend your broken heart
I wanted to be the one to wipe away your tears
I offered you my heart, my soul, and a life we can share together.

But you never loved me.
You only loved how I patiently loved you.
You only loved the idea that I'll still run to you despite our darkest days.
You only loved your old memory of me and discarded the truth that nothing has changed.

You never loved me, but I did.

Bee y Onsé.
Meruem Jul 29
Sa tuwing maaalala ko ang mga sandali,
Na ikaw ay aking kapiling.
Hindi maipinta ang ngiti sa aking labi,
Abot kamay na ang langit na aking hiniling.

Mga panahong nandito ka pa,
Lahat ng palihim na yakap at halik.
Bawat luha at halakahak,
Iyong malambot na pingi'y aking hawak.

Ngunit tila hindi ko napangalagaan,
Unti-unting lumuwag ang pagkakapit.
Ating naging huling sandali'y sadyang mapait,
At alam kong hindi na maibabalik ang nakaraan.

Pero iyo sanang mawari,
Na ikaw ay namumukod tangi.
At hinding-hindi ko na kayang itanggi,
Ako sayo'y nangungulila, ayoko ng magkunwari.

Salamat sa pag-ibig mo,
Ito'y mananatili sa akin.
Salamat sa pag-ibig mo,
Ikaw lamang ang nakapagpadama.

Wala ang pamagat,
Malalim parang dagat.
Marahil isang alamat,
Puno ng lamat at sugat.

Patuloy pa rin ang aking kwento,
Kahit ano pa ang naging engkwentro.
Ang bawat katagang hindi imbento,
Ilalapat sa aking pulang kwaderno.

Habits.
Meruem Jul 3
I remember where it all began:
It was us, savouring our youth.
Building habits, creating memories
That I will always keep with me.

The taste of your lips,
Our long drives home,
It's the way that you made me feel
That I will surely miss.

I won't go back to the start,
Maybe twice of it were too much.
Neither were good nor bad,
But it was definitely all worth it.

One thing about sadness,
It consumes.
And it may appear
In all shapes and forms.
Whether it comes from the outside,
Or deep within;
It will definitely loom
Over your whole entire being.

Scattered all throughout
A piece that I secretly hide
The puzzles on the floor
And it's you that I adore.

Shattered all over
A piece that I can't deny
The puzzles on the floor
And I swear to love you more.

And living through both ends - that's enough.

Trying to find all the good things amidst the bad..
Meruem Apr 7
While enjoying a good bottle of beer,
A close friend of mine told us:
You should all practice
"The Art Of Not Giving A ****."

I had an immediate idea of what it is about
But I wanted to have a deeper look on it.
As I scroll the book,
There was this one particular line that got me;

"This is why not giving a **** is so key.
This is why it’s going to save the world.
And it’s going to save it by accepting that the world is totally fvcked and that’s all right,
because it’s always been that way, and always will be."

People must take note of this:
Bad things happen and we reach rock bottom,
that's okay!
Stop hating yourself for being so bad and focus on continuosly watering yourself for you to grow.

Akala ko nung una hindi na magbabago,
Itong maumay na takbo ng buhay ko.
Sabi nila, "pare hindi ka na natuto."
Oh pare-pareho lang ang aking problema.

Pero noong makita ko ang halaga mo,
At ang ning-ning ng iyong mga mata.
Lahat ng hapdi tila agad nawawala,
Naaalala ko na..

Tumitigil nga pala ang oras,
Kapag ikaw ay nariyan.
At ang lahat ng mga kulay;
Gumaganda.

Ipangako mo naman sa akin,
Na hinding-hindi mawawala
Ang iyong mga ngiti
Na kasing liwanag ng mga tala.

The truth is that I really don't enjoy long travels
That specific smell makes me sick
And all I want to do while on the road is
To sleep.

But everytime I close my eyes
It is you that comes to mind;
The thought of having the chance to hold your hand for a while
To be able to feel your warmth.

As time goes by
I learned to appreciate
The journey
Of coming home to you.

You are here.
This is,
My favorite place.

Where everyone's asleep

A single line
Not only can be heard
But also can be seen.

Ilang taon na rin ang nakalipas,
Mula noong una kong masilayan;
Ang kislap ng iyong mga mata,
Nangingibabaw sa mga ilaw sa daan.

Naaalala ko pa lahat -
Puno ng kaligayahan, kapayapaan.

At ngayon, ikaw at ako.
Tila hindi na magkatagpo.
Sana hindi matangay ng pagbugso,
Itong dinadala ng aking puso.

"I hurt you. I scared you.
I understand if you hate me." - he said
Being the rose-colored one,
But also wander in the dark.

Some people do have
A more positive outlook in life.
But all,  by nature, tend to remember
The negative things more strongly and in more detail.

In the grand scheme of things,
Is it possible to love both sides?
Something that is chaotic,
But joyful at the same time.

Stars.

Stars;
So much can be seen by the naked eye.
We tend to look highly of them,
But they're pretty much like us.

They're born
Live,
And they die.

Some stars lose their light,
Some explode.
Even though they seem so ahead,
Like us, they are still mortal.

The way we look at stars,
It's like they can guide us moving on.
In reality, we're lost in the past;
Long gone, moved on.

You don’t mean to be a problem
You don’t mean to cause me pain
You don’t mean to do much but it’s one and the same

I don’t know where this came from
I thought we were plain sailing
This has taken me aback and it goes without saying

Yeah I’m gonna feel broken for a bit
Life’s gonna be a little bit ****
Ohh, for at least the next week

We had our flaws I’ll be the first to admit
And we both struggled to commit
Ohh, was it really that bleak?

"There's no such thing as fate..
Nothing is meant to be.
He knew, he was sure of it now."

A slight hint of hope,
A second chance in love.
Tom asked her out, she said sure.

And ripped your heart out?

And how would you feel if I walked up to someone else
And ripped their heart out?
How would you feel if I said to you
"That's how I feel"

How could you lie to me time and time again?
I'm getting tired of everything you say
But I want you anyway

Yeah I feel like I'm losing you
Oh how can that be true?

Am still hungover post-downtime.
There's so much time ahead of me. After it all, I need to focus on the present, as this will build my future. Padayon~
