Life in quarantine
yv Mar 23
We're all acting fine
until you're lying in bed
The lights are out

you give yourself break
There's no one's there
to see you anyway

A blanket over your head
a pillow hugged to your chest
As the years start to fall

A hand put to muffle the sobs
Until sleep takes over you
those years dry themselves

You wake up to tommorow
only to wait till night comes
And cry yourself to sleep again
Quarantine ain't doing me any good

Treasures in the Night
yv Mar 11
As the Stars twinkle at night
Each light comforts another
And another, and another
A dim glow from the universe

Under this breathtaking night sky
Children blending in the background
As they wait for heaven’s graces
Stars seem to have more twinkle than their eyes

As the night grew longer, and the moon rose higher
Heaven’s graces are nowhere to be found
Unlike the stars that were apparent to everyone’s eyes
They were hidden away in the darkness

A chorus of stomach growls are heard from the alleyway
They cannot wait for heaven’s graces no more
Each person passing by is as if a star in the night sky
Heaven’s grace is in such close reach

A glimmer appeared in their eyes
And other from the cold metal in their hand
Slowly they try to reach for the stars
To silence the cries of hunger in their head

I never got the chance
To just sit down and feel the wind
Blow sweet whispers in my ear

How would it feel to be completly still
As the clock stops ticking
For all the good reasons

I may be alone, but no not lonely
As the birds fly in the sky so peacefully
So quiet that I hear my own heartbeat

I never got the chance to give
Although it's fair since I never looked for it
Since they said let love find you

How nice would it be
To just tear this facade of a fantasy
And just pour out all of my anxiety

All I want in life is to be happy
Turns out things don't work out that easily
You grovel and grovel and grovel

A field of flowers in every horizon
Go cry your heart out
Go scream till your lungs hurt

No one will hear you anyway
Now put your mask back on
Put a smile on your face

yv Feb 14
"Are you in love?"

'No, not yet.'

"When do you think you'll fall in love?"

'Come the day I'll learn to love myself.'

"When will that happen?"

'Surely not anytime soon.'

"And why is that?"

One Winter Night
yv Feb 10
The warmth of your hug
Just melts away
The tense nerves
On my body

You're all I need
After a tiring day
My home
my comfort

It's as easy as
One, two, three
To fill my heart with glee

I missed my chance
To make a wish
It's this time of the day
I find my head
Swarmed with thoughts
But I find no one
To share these to
So all I do
Is to write instead

yv Jan 27
not all love stories have a happy ending
sometimes, there are people who are meant
to just come and go

but even if they do go
you'll forever carry with you
the memories you shared together

you'll know that love is love
because when you do start loving someone
that feeling won't fade away

you will love him
for the years to come, for all eternity
even if he's not there by your side
yv Jan 27
Go cry your eyes out
Go scream into your pillow

Whatever it takes
To take away that pain of yours

And afterwards, build yourself
From bottom to top

Love, that cliché love
Love that never goes without pain

Nevertheless you repeat the cycle again
You love and get hurt

Go cry your heart out
For every wasted feelings you gave away

Because love might be a cliché
But what's life without it anyway

The Minority
yv Jan 26
In this world of casual relationships

I miss deep conversations

Getting to talk about absolutely

a n y t h i n g

About life, love, and random thoughts

About my dreams, fears, and aspirations

I miss having a feeling of connection

In this world of casual relationships

I want to feel loved

To be loved

And to be in love

In this world of casual relationships

I don't want none of that ****

The world has left me behind

It's moving on and has set me aside

On it's own usual pace

Somehow I can't seem to catch up to

There's no love left for me to give

I gave it all away

as if there is no life left for me to live

And that's how I ended up stuck in a place

Where time no longer runs

think deeper
yv Nov 2019

I wonder when I'll get to be happy
but then a few seconds later
I contemplate if I even deserve that

and you know what?

I'm starting to think I don't
that realization hurts
but it makes a lot of sense;

O God our loving Father,

I wonder if God thought about asking me if I wanted to be born at all like living is so ******* tiresome, please just take me to heaven or give my life to someone who actually deserves it
yv Sep 2019
it ***** when you're sad and the tears won't ******* fall like **** let me cry out my guts and my feelings

I don't want to feel numb and void of emotions, let me feel anything at all because not feeling anything scares me more than being depressed

cry night tonight
yv Sep 2019
At the end of the day
there'll be a beautiful sunset
waiting for you

Right afterwards
the sky will be painted black
with twinkling stars for comfort

But then the clouds start to cover them
Blocking your view, and the demons
they appear again in your head

It's past midnight: early a.m
you have no idea
why you feel how you do

You just lay there alone
with vicious thoughts running around
as the tears slowly start to fall

From your cheeks to your nose
and your clothes even got wet
and you run out of breath

You try not to make a sound
because no one should know
it won't be any good for anyone

Until you fall asleep
and hope to have a good dream
but still you fail to be happy

Even in your sleep
not a hint of joy to be found
only this pounding feeling in your chest

And then you hear the alarm sounding off
As your eyes open you see darkness
The same ceiling you stared crying to sleep

It took every ounce to get out of bed
to face a new day
and be miserable inside

As the sunrise comes
we have to pretend once again
how can I stop this feeling?
I hate you @ self

I hope that I grow
So I won't give in
To these insecurities
I hope I don't compare
So that I will learn
To finally love myself

Cuddle Season Again
yv Jul 2019
I just want to get out
for a while from reality
and into your arms
feeling your warmth

I just want a hug
in this rainy weather
a short break from it all
all I ask for is a cuddle
Away from all kinds of toxicity

yv Jul 2019
She never knew where she stands
never knew what she's worth
and yet she always fall too fast

She wasn't able to get back up
to go out, it made her feel low
made her feel nothing

All she wants is a holding hand
and an open heart - acceptance
she's been begging all her life

But no one could hear her voice
all the way down there
she continued - having nothing else to do
yv Jul 2019
I hate having to beg for attention
But I'm scared of not getting any

I hate that I have to beg for your time
But I have no choice, you're my life line

I hate this feeling of loving alone
But that's how much I love you

So I'll still beg for it anyway
No matter how long it takes
Even if my bones will break

Always stuck in between,
between being a kid
        and growing up
between being grateful
        and wanting more

I'm always stuck in between,
        but somehow never stuck
        in your heart, your mind
                                  your soul

You were always stuck in mine
Whether you wanted to or not

yv Jun 2019
At night when I lay on bed
I find myself praying to God
to help me help myself

At night, before I close my eyes
I played music, it filled my ears
it blocked out all the dark thoughts

At night, when it was cold
and I had no one to hold
I cried myself to sleep

As well as the night after that
and the night after that
and the night after  that;
it never stops;

Can you still love me when I am a mess? When my tears start to fall and all else goes wrong?

Can you still love me when I fail? When the whole world is going against me?

Can you still love me when you see me, the real me? When you realize that I have a **** ton of heavy baggage?

Will you still love me when I can't even love myself?

You. You are a ray of sunshine
Mine. My source of happiness
We. I thought we were happy

You. You were that guy I never had
Mine. Maybe it was my fault
We. We just weren't meant to be

You. It was always you and you again
Mine. I'll never be able to call you mine
We. We cannot be, you and I, missed our chance
yv Jun 2019
I am empty,
Trying to squeeze out words
To make a poem that is loved
At the same time hated

A poem that is loved
Because of its familiar sound
A poem that is hated
Because of the reality it portrays

I am empty,
Empty of love
Trying to fill up my heart
Only ending up void again

Again. Here we go again
This feeling of emptiness
Never quite sure
Of one's own emotions

Stranger. Who are you?
It's as if they were strangers
Not knowing what she loves
What she hates,  what she wants

She is her own stranger,
A different person each day
And each day again
That stranger felt empty

Isang tula para kay-
yv Jun 2019
Nangungulila ako sa iyo
Sa iyong mga ngiti't halik
Nangungulila ako,
Sa iyong mainit na pagyapos

Giliw, patuloy akong nangungulila
Sa iyong wagas na pagmamahal
Na pillit **** ipinagkakait

O aking sinta, iniirog kitang sobra
Hindi mo lamang namamalayan
Ako'y nangungulila sa iyo
I just love how sincere this sounds in my mother tongue. As Jose Rizal said: Nakakapagbugso ng damdamin or in present days, nakakakilig <3

You keep throwing
words in the

and I keep blocking them out

these worthless words of yours
It won't bring me down

wait and see
the power of your words
It'll weigh you              instead

burn you to the ground
only until ashes remain
wait and see

At the field of flowers

She rest her knees
On dirt

For a moment
Beauty was distrupted

Only until
She held herself
Back again

Distortion in hiding
Beauty on the outside

How have you been?
Are you all right?
I look at the night sky and think of you
I listen to songs that remind me of you

Are you doing fine?
Have you eaten yet?
I passed by your favourite restaurant today
I watched the first movie we saw together

I wonder how the stars look up there
Do they look different up close?
How have you been?
Because I've been missing you since
