Mahal kumusta ka na?!

Ansakit naman ng biro ng tadhana

Na makitang buntis ka na

Ngunit para sayo ako ay masaya

Pero mas masaya sana

Kung ako ang naging ama

Subalit ngayon ay iinumin ko’ng aking mga luha

Kung sana noo’y di ako naunahan ng kaba

Nung ika’y malaya pa

Malamang tayo ang itinadhana

Pero ngayon ay huli na

At wala na’kong magagawa pa

Kundi ibulong sa sarili ko ang “mahal kita”

At tanungin ka ng “kumusta?”

FUCK THE SOULMATE MENTALITY!

Love is like a heart-shaped jigsaw puzzle made up of two pieces. And due to the novelty of our experiences, each puzzle piece have intricate, unique patterns that can fit perfectly to only one piece.

But what people fail to realize is that  it’s not just a trial and error fitting spree. It involves the painful process of refining the edges, cutting an edge to accommodate the other piece, and extending some parts to fill the gaps of the other.

The interesting thing is, this gap that we’re trying to fill in order to piece together this puzzle, is dynamic. Such that, the patterns change in our lifetime and thus the process of cutting, welding, and grinding are perennial processes necessary to keep the love puzzle in perfect fit.

Moral of the story? FUCK THE SOULMATE MENTALITY!

To the Lovely Lady With Lovely Dimples

dimples
“Ok lang kahit anghirap sabihin at isulat ang pangalan mo Shin Min Ah. Cute ka naman tapos bonus pa yung dimples mo. Pakiss nga ako…” ang larawan ay mula sa imgarcade.com

Habang nasa van ako isang gabi, puyat, pagod at antok na antok ay pinanood kong muli si Vela Blue sa aking cellphone habang hinahataw nya ang drums.

She never fails to put a smile on my face.

Bakit kaya palagi nalang?

Bukod sa ansarap nyang yakapin habang nage-enjoy siya ay dahil ito sa kanyang dimples.

Di ko alam bakit gandang-ganda ako sa mga ladies na may dimples. Siguro ay dahil ang una kong gf ay may biloy. A basta. Nakakapagpalabas talaga siya ng ngiti. Yung tipong:

“mahal, huwag kang ngingiti at baka di nako balikan ng hininga ko…”

Bawat magagandang binibining may biloy, para sa akin ay isang prinsesa na kay sarap alayan ng mga kaloob upang ako’y mabiyayaan ng kanyang matatamis na ngiti habang ang kanyang mga dimples ay pinaglalaruan ang aking damdamin at kamalayan.

Mula noon ay di na ako nagkaroon ng leading lady na may dimples. Mukhang nakuntento nalang ako na matuwa sa mga binibini na may mala-langit na mga ngiti na pinatatamis ng kanyang mga dimples.

Marahil ay sa kadahilanang ang biloy at ang puso ko’y parehas ng hitsura. Yung puso ko nga lang e may bakas ng mga palaso ni Kupido na nag-iwan ng malalim na latay.

Sige na, sige na keso na kung keso. E yung keso nga andami ding dimples e…

Stolen

You’re one heck of a thief my lady –

You came not in the dead of the night but in broad day light;

Not when my senses are dead but when they’re on full alert;

You came not in secret, you walked in through the front door.

 

I never noticed you at first –

But then you just started doing your thing, when you’re just being you:

…when you flaunt your smile

…when your eyes laugh

…when your hair is caught in the morning breeze

…when the air reminds me of your lovely scent and your presence

 

That’s when I started to lose things because you take them away one by one –

First you stole my glances

Next you took my attention

After that, my smile…

 

And then,

 

This throbbing thing within my chest…

 

I have become an object of robbery.

I’ve finally fallen prey

I finally have fallen for you

 

“For

you

have

stolen

my

heart…”

Mga sasakyang bumabara sa kalsada: traffic.

Ugat na daluyan ng dugong nabarahan sa dibdib: heart attack.

Bumarang mga salita sa aking lalamunan nang makahanap ako ng magandang pagkakataon na kausapin ka: “maal ia”

Mga nautal kong salita na bumara sa tenga mo sabay tawa mo ng malakas: “alam mo nakakatawa ka talaga, para kang yung boyfriend ko”

Buti nalang bumara ang mga luha ko at di tumulo, kunwaring ngumiti ako at napabulong nalang ng : “uang iya, ang ait!

Baradong pagtatapat ng saloobin sayo at basketball na sinalubong ng mga bukas na palad: SUPALPAL!!!

Vela Blue-chan, Boku wa Suki Da to Sakebitai!

Iba talaga ang dating ng chic na marunong mag rock en roll.

Bukod sa cool na cool ito ay may taste syang astig na hinding-hindi maluluma.

At ang mas nakaka-inlove ay yung kumportable sya sa sarili nya at nage-enjoy siya sa kanyang ginagawa.

Gaya nalang ni Vela Blue na wala kang magagawa kundi ngumanga at humanga habang hinahataw niya ang drums sa tugtog ng Slamdunk anime opening song na “Kimi Ga Suki Da to Sakebitai” na ayon sa mga translations ay “I want to shout I love you.”

Ang galing ng pagkakabalanse nya ng kanyang pagiging chic at rocker.

Lalo na habang ngumingiti siya ng isang pamatay na ngiti at lumalabas ang kanyang mga dimples ay talaga naman brad!

Pero kung may pagkakataon nga din lang ako ay di ko lang isisigaw ang “I love you Vela Blue!”

Yayakapin ko pa siya.

The Waiter (For Her Love)

The Rope to Heaven (In the Absence of a Stairway)

I saw her face beyond the clouds
Then she looked at me, we both knew it’s gotta be love
It prompted me to reach for the sky
I closed my eyes and reached up high
But all I grasped is the air
And when I opened my eyes she wasn’t there.

Down came a rope from heaven
With twisted knots along its length
God appeared, touched my shoulders and said:
“You want her my son? I have no ladder, this is all I have.”
I said “I know Sir it is but a crack.
But it would be enough for me to start.”

Up and up went my climb
I passed mountain peaks where the eagles glide
I then saw her eyes so tender
I told myself I have nothing but my best to render.
Because I want her
Because I love her
Because I’d take her…

“She Would’ve Been Here If She Did Love Me”

I don’t know why there is this huge impact of this song to me. I first heard this when I was in junior high school (which was almost two decades now) when the pangs of love missed my heart and went right straight to my balls (Damn! Now I know why love can hurt so much!)

Maybe because I was hoping that Donna (my first love) would dedicate it to me back then. Or that she would tell me the exact same words in the chorus which never happened anyway. Or maybe I romanticized about it all that much.

Or maybe I wont ever know exactly why.

But the lyrics still sticking in my brains after almost 20 years and the message still poignant as when I first heard it? Man, that is way beyond crazy. And that craziness seemed to have resided permanently in me!!
