I like you,

and I talk to the moon about you — but this time, I’m waking up for mornings. I like you, but it’s not every time I write about your favorite euphoria. I like you, and I’ve watched you dance, but it’s not every time my heart would beat for your smiles. I like you, and…

You’re still my favorite mistake.

I wish I could scrape you out of my soul forever. I’m sure my heart never stopped beating because of it. It felt wrong. It’s toxic that limits my system to fathom love again. You showed me a sin that I’d be willing to forget. I never thought loving you makes me a sinner already….

Para sa aking tala,

Pwede kong isipin na ilang taon mula ngayon, ang ating mga landas ay muling magkakatagpo. Huli kang darating sa pagtitipon at ako’y kunwaring magtatago sa isang sulok.

Hindi ko alam kung bakit,

mas pinili kong manatili sa sakit na dulot mo. Marami nang nagtatanong sa akin kung tila ba’y nahihibang na ako sa aking ginagawa; na mas mabuting kalimutan ko na ang dapat sana’y mga alaala lang.

Mga paksang akala nila’y hindi na ikaw

Hindi ko mabilang sa aking mga daliri kung ilang beses na ba kitang pinangarap. Siguro mga sampu, o mga bente, o di kaya’y kahit sa naunang buhay nating dalawa ay ikaw lang ang tanging bukambibig. Pinupuna na ako ng aking mga tula sa pagiging hibang sa talang kahit kailan ay hindi kuminang para sa akin….
