These are but vain attempts to express, by one who wears her heart on her sleeve. Words, much like love, can be ever elusive... ever frustrating... like trying to paint a million stories on a single canvass. If you will read, please do not ask. Just feel. Or at least try to. The meaning is, whatever you have felt to be there, or the lack thereof :)

Excerpt.



Yesterday, loneliness was reflected in my eyes
Today, its trace is still upon my face
And it’ll still be here tomorrow
A testament of the grief burdening my mind
Since you went away.

I can no more reach you for you’ve gone too far
And as long as you’ll remain to be (beyond my reach)
Things will never be the way they used to.

The sunshine that used to reach out to me when you were still here
Will no longer be enough to illumine me
Whenever I find myself in darkness.
I don’t think there will even be any.
Not anymore
For indeed never again will there be radiance
As bright as that which used to shine from you.

What serenity there was in my once blissful world,
All ended when I ceased hearing your voice
Without it there’s no more calmness in every reigning silence of midnight.
Instead, all that would be heard
Are the pitiful cries of my broken heart.

It is all because of you cruel memory!
You’ve left me with nothing but reminisces both bitter and sweet
Like the vivid picture of the time you shared with me your happiest thoughts
Or those moments when you cried out your sorrows

And you expect me to forget.
How can I?
Tell me, how can I.
When I can’t ease even a little of my pain
When after all this time,
Even though things are no longer the way they were
I still keep on remembering.

(A modern trying-hard tragedy)

MainLib blues # 2



Nak nang … , nasaan na ba
Ang kuwentong (sabi ni Mitch) nanalo raw sa Palanca
Kundangan naman kasi’ng di alam ang year
At nalimutan ko pang dalhin
Ang kopya ng author at  ‘taytil’

Nak nang…, nagrarambol nang mga bulate ko
Sa pagngawa’y daig pang myusik
Ni Nicanor Abelardo
Si Nakpil nga ba talaga nag gumawa ng CCP
O nagloloko lang ang aking memory ?
Ba’t ba wala ‘yon sa librong ‘to
Ah, bahala na nga kayo sa mga research ‘nyo !
