Call it a side-effect of working full-time on the internet, but I’ve made a (not really) shocking discovery lately.

Now are those things all fun and great? Sure, and I say go forth and social media your heart out. But they do not fill holes. They cannot bring lasting self-esteem. Cheesy as it is, they just can’t hug you at night.

Uncaring

Every time u feel worse, it’s better to ask another if s/he feels the same way too. U 2 should enjoy the fragile moments </3

This is the time of my life wherein I stop to care. Not because I’ve been hurt too much and all that drama, but I just have to stop with all the nonsense the fills me. What have I been doing? Wasting too much care, time, and thoughts that has led me nowhere. I’m nineteen now and I’m still back here in my room when I used to be fourteen.

Matagal ka na palang patay

MATAGAL KA NANG PATAY

AR Batalon

Hindi ba nila alam?

O hindi mo lang din alam?

Ang mga nauubos na alaala sa isip at puso ng iba.

Ang mga nasusunog na litrato kasama sila.

Hindi mo parin ba alam?

O hindi mo lang gustong alamin?

Na patay ka na.

Na patay ka na.

Matagal na.

Kung magsisimula pa tayo sa umpisa

Noong ang lahat ay masaya pa

Andyan ka, andyan sila

Tawanan, Kwentuhan, Kainan.

Walang labis, walang kulang. Sakto lang.

Hanggang nadurog ang puso, tumulo ang luha

Walang tigil na hikbi, panaghoy patungong katahimikan

Tinatanong sa sarili kung bakit nangyari

Kung kailangan bang mangyari

Kung dapat bang mangyari

Desisyon na kailangan panindigan

Lumayo

Tumakas

Paboritong salita bago ka mamatay.

Paboritong salita bago ako namatay.

Namatay na nga

Mabubuhay pa kaya?

Walang Hanggan, meron nga ba?

Sana meron.

Sana meron pa.

Pero wala na para sayo

Para sakin

Patay na nga di ba?

Buhayin mo ko.

Para sayo ‘to.

Alam mo kung sino ka.

Remember not

“Now what?”

The question I keep asking myself.

Measure your love, it surely ain’t possible

Weightless and dry, no doubt my dear

Have you asked how I was?

Won’t you ask me now, my love?

Leave you here, I will.
