to: my cuddle buddy
yv Jun 2018
The warmth is now gone from your side of the bed
and my  body is missing the cuddles you give on rainy days.

your scent has left the room, but the echoes of your laughter remains. I'm not used to sleeping alone anymore.

I miss how the bed dips on your side 'cause of your heavy weight,
and how you became my blanket, my pillow, and a shoulder to cry on.

I hate that I miss you, that I took you for granted, I didn't treasure the moment. I took what we had for granted,
and I regret it.

I miss you, and how my heart used to burn too.
never take anyone for granted

Forgotten or Ignored?
yv Oct 2018
Today when the sun was setting,
                          I ran into a friend
whom I haven't seen in a long time.
As the cold air blows, I stopped in my tracks.
And he just p a s s e d me by.

I was a stranger - to someone I considered
                             - a friend.

And it hurt. I was a stranger to him.
Like the memories we shared
               - got taken away by the winds.
This made me feel
the cold breeze up until my nape.

And when the sun finally set,
At least the moon
              - shined brightly to comfort me.
Yet it still made me remember
the memories we shared under it.
Was I really forgotten? Or Ignored?

A person of the past
yv Jun 2018
Because we weren't what we used to be anymore
because all I can do for you is to stay by your side
and be someone you can hold onto
while you pick up your broken pieces.

It seems like fate is done with our story.
I'm the only one holding on
and so all that is left is our faded memories.

oh and a mess of me and my broken pieces.
moving on

the girl with a story
yv Aug 2018
There is this girl I know - a happy one
She is someone you see in the background
blending in, just written as a bystander.

She is a friend of mine, a precious one
I do not know all of her stories
we were not that close
we just talk unimportant matters.

Now she's been a big part of my life
we were both casted as a bystander
our stories unknown, not wanted to be known.

As time passes by I knew
she wasn't a happy girl
I knew a few of her stories
of how she was hurt
how she deserved much more.

This is for that girl I only knew
then became my friend -  a special one.
To me you are not just a bystander
you are as special as anyone could be
who has a story worth hearing
and a love worth giving.

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

He is someone out of reach
But somehow my heart insists

In his heart it does not exist
A place for my love to preach

It makes me smile: the sight of him
It's tingling my feelings within

Oh can you please just notice me?
With a sincere heart I plead
yv Nov 2018
The truth is,

        I'll never find someone
        who despises me
        as much as myself

        and I'll never be able
        to let someone love me,
        'cause they said

        "you have to love yourself first,
              before anyone else does"

But what if I'll never do?
A condition I'll never meet

I guess I got too used to
how you used to use me
that I didn't notice
when you stopped needing me

I guess I was stupid
for thinking that you loved me
but all you did was take advantage of me

I guess I'll just keep guessing
on what I did wrong
or where it went wrong

And I guess all I can say
is that ******* for ruining me
'cause I really did love you

a plead for love
yv Jul 2018
I am in desperate need of company
i need to talk, and to be heard
i need someone who'll listen to all of my dark thoughts

but hearing these thoughts come with a price
they are not for the weak heart, and nor a weak mind
just watch where you step on, you might crush my heart

you might just cave in the darkness i'm in
just know that i didn't want for this to happen
i beg of you, don't blame this on me
all that i wanted was for someone to love me

i guess the world's just cruel
and we're all left to grovel.

I want someone who hugs me from behind.
I want someone who'll kiss me on my forehead before my lips.
I want someone who loves me without really knowing why.
I want someone who I can be myself with.
I want someone who makes me laugh with their own laughter.
I want someone who'll go with all of my craziness.
I want someone I can never have.
I want all of it.
I want you.

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

yv Sep 2018
What if the sky wasn't blue
or if I ever discover something new
what if all your promises stayed true
all of your I love you's

What if we look at things at different view
will things change for us to come through?
what if somehow we'll make do
and maybe meet again at our rendezvous

Maybe if we stayed true and knew
that someday sunrises will be our view
there's no need to read into
just hold my hand and whisper sweetly

I love you

i've never been inlove before
nor have i wanted to.

i have never been the one to dream about love
to want it, and think how lovely it could be.

i have never slept in the a.m.
just so i could to talk to someone
about literally everything and anything

i have never held a man's hand
that wasn't my father's
or my kid brother's

i have never felt so much happiness
so much that my heart could burst

and i've never felt pain like this before
nor have i cried myself to sleep because of a boy

i never thought that receiving a letter or playlist
could be as romantic as all those sappy movies

i have never gotten my heart broken before

until you.

But love how will I ever get to forget,
your endless laughter echoing through the room
little notes of poetry you write when I'm blue.

Love, how do you expect me to move on
from someone who made me feel euphoria
someone who showed me
what it means to really be alive.

Love, how can I ever look for someone new
when it was always you, all I wanted was for you
to stay true and maybe we could get through
all the times we felt quite blue,
you were just being crude but even so I love you.

Love, can you not hear me?
I love you! from every single imperfection you have
that still somehow make you the epitome of what is perfect

I beg of you! To listen, just listen to me.
Stay, please stay, because without you
I wouldn't know what to do, or where to go to.
I am lost without you.

Love please stay, come back into my arms
and maybe we can just make love
even if it's a bit cliche
it wouldn't take too much if you would stay.

Stay and kiss my tears away.
Stay with me and forget yesterday
would that be okay?
just stay with me, love please stay.

I think that
there'll never come a day
that I'll be able to return your love.

Because in order to do so
I have to love myself first.

I can't see myself doing
even after a million years.

I'm sorry.

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

i miss how my laughter
used to echo on alley ways
how you could hear
how happy i really was

i miss how i knew who i am
talking all about my dreams in life
having a plan i was determined to follow

i miss my friends
how i always seem to be able to relate to them
bring me back to the days
where we thought we could do anything
and everything under the sun

my friends
could be just another group of people
i would pass by and forget about
because that's how life is

take me back to where the only problem i had
was what flavor of ice cream  i should have
or where should i eat, what clothes i should wear

take me back when i was still innocent
knowing nothing about the world
how painful it is trying to live

because this wasn't how i imagined
growing up would be.

Living with a dream in life,
There are hardships along the way,
But for my dream it'll be okay.

A dream is a driving force,
It pulls you up
whenever you're not.

In thought of achievement
There is happiness,
There is hope for success

A feeling of excitement
As you come close to it
It's somehow a fulfilment

So I rose up and worked hard
I achieved my dream
But there's no happiness

I was hoping that maybe,

with every rise of the sun
- my dull eyes would light up.
with every drop of rain
- the tears running down my face would be hidden.
with every rainbow
- my grey colored life would gain color.
with the winds
- causing my hair to cover my face
   with an expression of anguish
with the thunder
- causing my screams for love to be deafened

when leaves start to fall
- maybe it'd explain the weight I am feeling,
   maybe it's just because of gravity
when the first snow comes
- maybe my thick clothing could replace
   the warmth you once gave to my heart.
when flowers start to blossom
- maybe I'll start looking at the world beautifully again
when summer comes in
- maybe your side of the bed will warm up again

Or maybe I'll just start the cycle all over again.
again and again and again and again

from words that were spoken
which i should never have said

my heart bleeds
from your expression of anguish
and the silence hanging in the air

yet you still smiled
and held my hand
as if you didn't  hear of any of those words i said

thank you,
for accepting my unspoken apology
for forgiving me, even when i didn't ask you to
we easily say words that hurt other people
yet when it comes to apologies and confrontations
it'll take a million years, or none at all

Love - has lost its meaning
          - is a word spoken too much and taken too lightly
          - is mistaken for lust
          - is what many want but cannot have
          - can be painful too
          - is said to have no rules but is criticized by everyone
          - could have been so simple if you lowered your pride
          - is what our world needs but is slowly losing
          - was not supposed to seem so ugly
          - should be revived again
sometimes we just make things complicated on our own
