Listless

24 days into 2014 and it’s been good, for the most part. The only trouble I seem to be having is forgetting that there should be a 4 instead of a 3 in the last Y of DD/MM/YYYY. Started the … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

The sorry story

Between the two of us, I guess it’s always you who concedes first, apologizes first. Serves you right, I used to think, for being the first to get infuriated, the first to feel unappreciated. I could bear not talking to … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Hell hath no fury like a girl scorned

Feeling particularly lonely on Thursday afternoon, I texted two of my friends and asked “Wala kayong balak magsayang ng oras ngayon?” but only one replied in the affirmative and we agreed to meet up over coffee before my shift starts … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Day off ruminations IV

I should have seen this coming. But perhaps I’m too jaded to really feel anything that resembles romantic love from anybody. Well, it’s a given that you’ve stirred something in me (that’s what led me to write about you for … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Why we can’t get closer than what we are right now

i. One day I noticed that you’ve made a habit of patting me on the shoulder and then asking “Ayos ka lang?” which I’d answer with either a nod or a smile. It’s become kind of frequent that I was starting to … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

The point is pointless

Never underestimate the ability of a busy road to make you feel even lonelier than you already are while standing on a sidewalk and waiting for a jeepney homebound. Jeepneys pass by. You still stand there waiting. Different sights and … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

The walls won’t break down

This attraction is not going anywhere so I guess I better stop replying to your pop-up messages or unfriend you on Facebook once and for all (but on second thought, that would be too obvious so I’m probably sticking to … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Loose ends

Words were lost deep in the protracted silences that the two of you had shared. Blame her who had decided to completely cut the ties, but don’t forget that you didn’t do anything to make her change her mind. – … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

10 to ten

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing. 18 to ten. Some Latino is serenading me in the background while I’m veering away from fcking thesis matrices. This entire editing shiz is sucking the creativity left in me that I could … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa
