Why can't the world just all be nice things?
I'üe never had more faith than anything.
Wish that we could make this all a distant memory;
Figure things out along the journey.

Home.
Meruem Feb 2020
There is no place like home;
Its exact meaning is unknown.
How about I write a poem,
In search of meaning I'll roam.

At first, let's go into a place
Where we ought to seek for space.
It's where all troubles are erased,
And where your peace of mind awaits.

Then, let's pursue this person
Who just taught you a valuable lesson.
Nonetheless, one thing is for certain;
With her, you'll yet to know your purpose.

There is no place like home;
It's where you'll get these feelings.
And to put things into perspective,
Home is where I am with you.

Everglow.
Meruem Dec 2019
We have finally reached
A complete turnaround,
And for the last time
I was homebound.

There she was
Right at plain sight;
And like the moon,
I borrowed her light.
December 20, 2019 - 03:42

"Everglow" is a feeling of peace or love that given by something or someone. Despite what a person has been through, this feeling continues to remain in their heart, no matter what."

Ni isang beses ay hindi pa 'ko

Nang una kong masabi ang pangalan mo
Nakalunok ako kaya siguro.

Na naligaw sa aming tahanan.

Siya ay may dalang kalungkutan.

At nang lumaon nga siya ay napaluha,
At siya ay napapunas ng kanyang luha,
At napapunas, at napapunas,
At napanunas, at napanunas....................

Same day last year was different;
It was a lot of of ups and downs.
Things were left because it ain't right;
Same day next year will be different.
December 9, 2019 - 02:14

Looking back, I really made a lot of mistakes. I am trying to not let those things define who I am as a person, and I am still doing my best to be better each and every day.

So, I am still thankful for all the days - up to this point - of having a fresh start since then.

We can't please everybody,
Some may say otherwise.
Because in a bucket full of rights,
We tend to single out the wrong.

Re: it should've been a hundred.
Little did they know,
That ten was all that we got.

Panahon na rin siguro,
Para ako'y makasiguro.

Habang ako ay natututo.

At sa pagsapit ng umaga,
Isa lamang ang mahalaga;
Na sa pagmulat ng mga mata,
Purong ligaya na ang nadarama.

Estuary.
Meruem Nov 2019
There is this specific place,
Where a river meets the sea.
There is this particular story,
When I got to meet you.

It's all been smooth sailing,
Until we hit a rocky path.
Now we are on the estuary,
Seeking for growth as we go.

Memoir.
Meruem Oct 2019
I always get subtle memories,
Whenever I remember my last love.

It was like a freshly brewed coffee,
For someone who prefers milk.
It was the strongest kind,
One that certainly kept me wide awake.

It was like winter
On a tropical island.
Cold yet always kept me warm;
Seasonal but definitely not temporary.

I always get subtle memories,
Enough to keep me at bay.

Ika-Siyam ng Oktubre.
Meruem Oct 2019
Nakahiga lamang sa sahig,
Lunod sa himig ni Shirley.
Tamang medley sa gabi,
Sa pagsapit ng umaga ay nananabik.

Pinaalala sakin ang iyong mga ngiti,
Lalo na yaong mapupulang pisngi.
Bakas na bakas sa labi ang hikbi,
Nang aking balikan ang lahat ng aking pagkakamali.

Nakakalungkot lamang isipin,
Kung paano nawala ang ating pagtingin.
Noong sandaling nag iba ang ihip ng hangin,
Bakit hindi kita nagawang sagipin.
October 9, 2019 - 02:57

Dreamcatcher.
Meruem Oct 2019
It was just a wonderful sight;
At the top, over the city lights.
Of all the stars that shined so bright,
You were the brightest one that night.
Though you look so gloomy today,
Just breathe, and be on your way.
Your light may seem to fade away,
Just try not to worry, you'll have it all back
Someday.

Imagine the life of a plant,
Harmonizing oneself with nature.

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 2019
"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 2019
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.

Ilalapat sa aking pulang kwaderno.

Habits.
Meruem Jul 2019
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.

And I swear to love you more.

Meruem Apr 2019
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.

At ang ning-ning ng iyong mga mata.

Naaalala ko na..

Tumitigil nga pala ang oras,
Kapag ikaw ay nariyan.

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.

A more positive outlook in life.

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.
