What Of Love? What Of Hurt?

There are a lot of things in life that we do not have control over. We cannot choose our family. We do not get a say who sits next to us on the bus. We do not decide if and when we are gonna get down with the flu. And at some level, we do not choose who we fall for – we do not …

Maling Alaala

Limang taon na pala kayo ng girlfriend mo. Halos anim na taon naman nung nagdecide ako tayo na kahit pagiging magkaibigan, hindi sa atin pwede. Wala naman akong pinagsisisihan. Ang totoo nga nyan, yung paglalayo nating dalawa ang pinakatamang ginawa ko sa buhay ko. Naging masaya pa din naman kami ng boyfriend ko noon kahit ipinagtapat ko sa kanya ang tungkol sa atin. Napatawad naman nya ako. Yun nga …

Listen To Me, Coffee Man

I am against into any form of cheating, especially if it involves dishonesty in relationships. When you are with someone, you do your best to make the relationship work. If it doesn’t, you can say your goodbyes. You don’t jump to another boat while sailing your own, and you don’t simply sink your own just so you can jump to the next one that passes your …

The Last Coffee Drop

Have you seen the movie, “That Thing Called Tadhana”? It narrated a story about heartache, loss, letting go, newfound friendship, newfound love and that thing that is meant to be.

A Break Up Letter To A Man Mistakenly Sent To Wife

Part of me saying that I needed safekeeping in the arms of a man …but already warm from another woman’s affection. Suddenly, this enclave of mine, a place that many have quest to conquer, with you, I just let you in …

When My Shady Lover Describes Me As…

“…such a mystical ninja assassin, trained from birth as a bad ass nut-crunching iron lady, raised from the most ferocious and warlike culture in Mommylandia. Pretty much, the most face-rockingly hardcore bastard to ever beat the shit out of you. She is like a psycho insane and a mead-swinging berserk-er. She has a phoenix tattoo at her back as if she can call upon when she is …

Pahungaw

“You see THAT girl, yeah her.  She seems so invincible right.  But just touch her and she’ll flinch. She has secrets and  she trusts no one. She’s the perfect example of betrayal, cause everyone she trusted, broke her. ” It’s so hard when you’re too sensitive, when you can clearly understand what they don’t, when you can see through things beyond what they can see, when a thing …
