We never knew what the future held for us
So we thread this fate with blindfolds on our face
And yet our efforts were never just
We held back our sentences that stayed as a phrase

We never knew if our red string tied each other
We hoped that we would tie the knot together
And yet we knew 'we' won't last forever
In hopes that we would meet in the end, hereafter.

Let's start it over again
one more talk,
one more long conversation,
one more friendship.
Please, One More Chance.

One more hug,
one more kiss,
one more romance.
Please, One More Chance.

No more crying,
no more pain,
no more heartbreaks.
Please, Give Me One More Chance.

Give me one more chance
to show how much I regret
days without you...

Give me one more chance
to show how much ...
how much I LOVE YOU.
For the only person I love ,
and the person who I will ALWAYS love.

Its for your own good.
Words no one ever thought was true.
6 words no one ever believed.
Even though it is the truth.

There's a simple reason,
For people to never believe
The words of assurance
that you force on them.

Even if you tell them,
"Its for your own good"
If you'll never say why
They will always live,

With the fact that the thing,
That they wanted and loved,
At that point in time,
Was never for them.

A kid wanted a toy,
It wasn't bought.
Instead he got words that said,
"Its for your own good"

Not knowing that in time,
A new toy would come out,
That would be his,
In a lifetime than an instant.

A candy he wanted,
His mouth watering for desire
Again he never got it,
"Its for your own good"

Not knowing he'd get,
a fresh batch of cookies.
That would satisfy not only his mouth
But his stomach as well.

Wanting a smartphone today?
don't get it,
"Its for your own good" they told him
With envy of others he lived with his keypad phone.

Not knowing,
That, in a few days
A new, better, improved, and sexier. Smartphone would be released

That's why,
As I walk away from everything,
That we've built with our wounded hands.
I will tell you,

"Its for your own good"

But I will not leave without saying why.
No, I won't, I've been living with the question,
"Why" for a very long time,
So much so, That I don't want another.

"This is for your own good,
Because I know when I leave,
Someone will take my place,
By your side,
Not a boy, But a man.
Someone whose Arms would make you feel safe.
Someone whose eyes would let you see his soul.
Someone whose hearbeat would make you stop,

To stop asking why. Because for once, you'd think, that this is good.
That this is right, that everything in this messed up world,
Where everyone wants to hurt someone,
where everyone yearns for something else but you.

You've found a place that would make you feel,
That everything is as it should be.

So believe me when I say "This is for you own good'"
My first longest poem (lol)

Her thoughts.
I lie down on the grass
seeing the sun shine on my face
Making my hands sweat as I reach out to it
Tinting my face red with the heat it brings

You're beside me.
The greatest thing that happened to me.
I don't want to lose you.
I plead to anyone who'd hear my prayer.

His thoughts
I lie down on this hospital bed.
My smile reflected on your eyes like glass.
My hands shiver, shake, tremble as it reaches for your cheeks.
I fail. Hand drops. Pale skin. Cold heart. Enter nothingness.

Your tears are the only warmth on my body.
Goodbye, My beloved.
You broke me into pieces I didn't know I had,
but you already knew that.
The first time you laid hands on me every scratch I had seemed to disappear only moments later to return as cracks.
How did I get so fragile?
How could you bear to touch me?
I felt the ice in my heart turn to fire and I thought it was because I was starting to feel alive again
but really I was fighting for my life.
My heart's adrenaline was fleeing from a monster I didn't know I had until it was too late.
I know now that the world waits for no one
and if I were to stop this vicious cycle the time I would need to mend is much too great for this world to handle.
So I don't know if I'm afraid of losing you or afraid that in the time it will take me to mend the world will simply leave me behind.
I am much too insecure to be left behind by the two things that matter most.
I don't remember writing this.

When I was in Highschool the doctors diagnosed me as colorblind
I didn't believe them, of course.
Because how I see and what they think are different.
I can see the colors, they just don't understand.

Because I believed I can see it all,
The beautiful colors of her eyes as we watched the sunset
The different shades of her bright sunflower smile
Or how the crisp, yellow sunshine would land on my already-sweaty palms from holding her hand

Not one bit did I doubt myself
I was never wrong
That this is right.
But doctors are always right.

Because I failed to see
How her eyes lost their light whenever she looks at me
The deeper and darker hues of her smile as we walk together
And how I realized without the sun, my hands would be wet with tears and not sweat.

And how I failed to notice the most important thing,
Her feelings, just like the bright blue sky would turn into grey,
Grey that meant nothing.
Like her feelings for me are now nothing.
I wanna say this not just write it, I WANNA READ IT OUT LOUD TO PEOPLE LOL

Ako
Hindi ito isang tunay na kwento, hindi ito galing sa iba, ngunit sa akin lamang, isa itong imahinasyon na naisip ko, isang sitwasyon na inasam ko, isang mundo na magkasama tayo, ngunit kahit anong gawin ko, sa huli ay napaghiwalay tayo, wala akong maisip na pagtatapos na kung saan masaya tayong nagsasama, kung kahit ang simula nating dalawa ay hindi manlamang nag-umpisa.

Ako ay isa sa mga bilyong bilyong binatang umiibig, naghahanap, nag aasam, at nangagarap sa isang maliit na chansang sa akin ay may magmahal. Matagal man itong darating ako'y handang maghintay, basta't sa aking pag antay ika'y darating. Ayoko umasa, ayoko masaktan, ayokong umiyak, humagulgol na parang tanga sa loob ng kwarto ko. pero susugal ako kahit gusto kong sumaya, ngumiti, tumawa, at nais kang makasama. dahil nangako ka sa akin na tayo'y magsasama, maaring hindi ito mangyari dahil hindi tayo tinadhana, pero pipiliin ko ang masaktan bukas basta makakasama kita ngayon, siguro sa mata ninyo tatanga ako, pero kahit sino mang matalino, sa oras na inalay ng pag-ibig ang kamay niya, tayo ay isang mangmang na hindi na natuto sa paulit-ulit na naranasan natin at ng iba.

Kung kaya't makikiusap ako, sa diyos na may kapal, sa mundong umaastang kupal, na sa pag alis mo ika'y huwag nang tumalikod, upang sa buhay natin ang sakit ay ating malimot, kung kaya't nakikiusap ako, sa susunod na may dumating, ako'y iyong ibigin at ika'y aking mamahalin, Huwag mo akong iwan at ika'y aking sasamahan. Kung ito ay magagawa mo pangako ko sa'yo, lahat ito ay gagawin ko.
