staring at a window
a distance of
two inches away
        the world outside
    falling...
    piece
    by
    piece
    by
    piec­e
             buys
             pieces
             buys
             peace
                       by
                       pieces
                       it
                       pierces
          please------
     all i have
          in silence
                 in hushes
          your flushes
                               pierces...
                 one
                 two
                 three
          then your smile,
              all that is left...
          no longer pleases...
like puzzles
they scattered
                          all in pieces
               so hard to place together
         yet so damn hard to supress
                   i hate it.
if she loves me
yet she
loves me not
            can't seem to fit.
         i place in
   all the moments
       one by one
       bit by bit
                             altogether
             infinitely
                         tirelessly
                in repeat.
                         every single smile
             serene in capture
      even the tone
          of her song
                    caught in record
every flicker of her hair in my mind
just like a screenshot
              and even the blink
      of her eyes
           each individual dot...
    she loves me?
    she loves me not?
                  the flashes
        in and out
  staring at the window
      only two inches away...
           listening closely------
  she loves me?
  or she loves me not?
                 the outside world
     like a breathtaking blossom
     bald of petals...
           falling
                piece
                by
                ­piece.
TORPE (Filipino slang terminology)----- the foolish process of supressing your feelings for someone because of fear
Yan F May 8
it's like
most of the time,
it's her chat head
that's staring
glaring at me
in my screen

yet it feels like
most of the time,
backspace
was the only button
i've always
been pressing.
torpe? ------oo.

torpe ako kagaya ng iba
hindi ako kagaya ng iba na makakapal ang mukha
na puro lang salita
matatamis na salita
sa umpisa lang palagawa
puro lang dada pero pag dating sa dulo iiwanan kadin naman pala

Handa na ako
Na makipagkita sayo
Ngunit nakalimutan ko na
Sayo'y may nagmamay-ari pala

Unang tanong, bakit ngayon pa?
Kung kailan  masasabi ko sayo na
Noon palang ay mahal na kita
At hindi lang simple na mahalaga?

Patawad, ang bagal ko kasi
Sana ngayon sa buhay mo, ako'y parte
Hindi pa maibukas ang bunganga
Para sa tatlong simpleng salita:

'Sinta, minamahal kita'
Hanggang ngayon ay mahal parin kita
Paano ko nga ba makakalimutan ang katulad mo
Kung sa maraming taon, ikaw ang naging mundo ko?

Pangalawang tanong, nagsawa ka ba
Sa kahihintay sa mga katagang 'gusto kita?'
Mahal, sasabihin ko kahit huli na
Kahit alam kong walang mabubuong tayo nitong aking piyesa

Takot. Oo, nilunod ako ng takot
'Pag kasama ka, oras ay humihinto sa pag-ikot
Walang salita ang lumalabas sa aking bibig
Doon, napag-alaman ko na sayo pala'y umiibig

Ngunit, huli na
Sa pagiging tahimik, wala akong napala
Tinanong kita kung gusto mo rin ba ako
Sagot mo, "bakit ngayon mo lang sinabi to?"

Ngayon na ako'y nandito sa iyong harapan
Pangungusap, linya at taludtod ang nasa aking isipan
Subalit ang magagawa ko nalang ay ngumiti at tumango
Dahil kahit anong gawin, may nagmamay-ari na sayo
Inspired by '100 Tula Para Kay Stella'
Fidel, akin ka nalang please?

3.14 is the value of pi
Semicircle is the shape of a smile
8 is the symbol for infinity
Welcome to quantumly formed poetry.



Expressing my thoughts through cryptic theory
End of reversed evolutionary
It might not be self-explanatory
JUST Keeping It Short and Simple, M, E.



C, L, O, U, D, plus the square of three
is all that I feel when you are with Mi
Fa, So, La, Ti, Do, Re... or I mean me
Like M, A, G, I see... my world on thee.



You are my earth that is a twisted heart
I dream to be the he beside that art
Giving his best to be a romantic
Intimating through the fields of physics.



My love for you is three-dimensional
Taller and longer than diagonals
As deep as abyss, like cosmos so wide
but unbound by space and unchanged by time.



A fire started by a Maxwell's demon
Burning and shining from here to the moon
A flame so lunar and so lunatic
breaking the laws of thermodynamics.



Faring the distance at the speed of light
Lining the night skies like a meteorite
Traversing the widths of the hyperspace
Or cross a black hole just to see your face.



Escape with luck from a magnetic flux
Be right thrice a day with a broken clock
Above all that, there's just one thing I want:
To spend my last breath by holding your hand.

Hindi ko alam kung ano ang aking gagawin.
Pilit ko pa rin iniisip na meron kang gusto sa akin.
Ewan ko ba kung bakit ako nag gaganito.
Dahil sa aking nararamdaman ako'y litong-lito.

Ano pa ba ang aking dapat gawin para masabi 
Itong lihim na pagtingin ko kung may pagkakataon ikaw ay aking makatabi
Hindi mo ba alam na ang aking puso tumitibok para lang sayo.
Kaya ngayon ako'y nanghihina ng loob kung patuloy kang lumalayo.

Dinadaan ko na lang ito sa tula para mabasa mo
Kahit mabasa mo ito huwag kang titigil maging kaibigan ko
Sana'y rin ako maging masaya at malungkot sa piling mo
Kaya sana huwag kang makakalimot sa babae na ito.
Kaibigan ko at naging no label zone ko rin.
Sana mabasa mo ito yung tula na to, dahil alay ko to sa iyo.
Gusto pa rin kita pero parang malabo na talaga, E.
Sana rin magkita ulit tayo.

Every morning, getting out of bed is the worst,
But every morning my phone vibrates.
And it's because
Everyday you message me
Like it has been your daily routine
To impress me, to make me laugh
To show me what a true friend you are,
But to me, you're more than just a friend,
You're the one I love, you're the one I want to waste time with
You're the one that makes want to get out of bed and be productive.
But I can't let you see it,
Because someone else loves you,
And the one that loves you is my friend too.
He kept on talking about you, made so much effort just for you,
Almost got in trouble just to be with you.
And me? What did I even do to deserve you?
But make you smile.
Still, you find time to message me, call me, and tease me.
You're my friend, NO! you're more than just my friend
You're the one I love, and I just want you to be happy.
TL;DR
I love her, But I can't let her know. Someone else loves her, and the one that loves her is my friend too.  But I just want her to be happy, maybe not with me, But it's what I want for her.

Nakaw-Tingin


Nang masilayan ka,
Buhay ko ay sumigla.
Nang makilala ka,
Ngiti ko'y kakaiba.


Nang ika'y dumaan,
Sa aking harapan,
Ako'y nag-alinlangan,
Kung ika'y ngingitian.


Hindi ko maiwasan,
Na ika'y hangaan.
Sa iyong kagandahan,
Nagkakagusto ang kalalakihan.


Laman ka ng isipan,
Mukha mo'y napapanaginipan,
Sarili ko'y di maintindihan,
Damdamin ko'y naguguluhan.


Tinangka kitang lapitan,
Upang iyong malaman,
Na kita'y hinahangaan,
Gustong maging kaibigan.


Nang tayo'y magkaharap,
Wala akong mahagilap,
Hindi ko mahanap-hanap,
Ang salitang pangarap.


Nalimutan ko ang katapangan,
Naduwag ang aking kalooban,
Hindi ko na napanindigan,
Ang mga salitang binitawan.


Torpe na kung tawagin,
Kahit na ito'y nakaw-tingin,
Sa malayo ika'y napapansin,
Ako'y nagpapasalamat pa rin.

Yan ang tawag sa mga lalaking nahihiya,kinakabahan, parang basang pusa,nangingig pag nakikita yung babaeng crush nila hahaha nakakatawa diba?

Natatawa ako pero torpe din ako
Yung tipong
di makapag salita
mukhang tanga
naiihi
kinakabahan
pag nasasalubong ko si crush

Kaming mga torpe totoo mag mahal
Di lang namin alam kung pano namin to sasabihin
Di lang namain alam kung paano dumiskarte ng tama
Yung sakto
Yung walang halong kaba
Yung alam naming hindi papalya yung plano

Pero sa sobrang torpe ko nauhan ako ng iba
Naunahan ako ng iba na makuha ka
Naunahan ako ng iba na ligawan ka
Naunahan ako ng iba na sabihin sayo yung nararamdaman ko

Naiinis ako sa sarili ko
Naiinis ako sa sarili ko kasi napaka torpe ko
Sasabihin ko lang sayo yung nararamdam ko pero di ko magawa
Natatakot akong sabihin sayo kasi baka layuan mo ako

Nag iisip ako ng paraan kung paano ko sasabihin sayo
Sa sobrang kakaisip ko naunahan na pala ako ng iba
Sa sobrang torpe ko naunahan na ako ng iba
Sa sobrang torpe ko nawalan na ako ng pag asa
Lalo na may mahal ka na at may naka hawak na sa puso mo

Putangina ang  T O R P E   ko
