Ang Pagitan

  Nais kong umawit muli para sa iyo, habang ikaw ay abot-tanaw pa at dinig mo ang tinig ko. Ngunit sa aking pagbasag sa katahimikang nagsisilbing moog sa pagitan ng ating mga buhay, tinig ko sana’y dinggin at iyong paniwalaan, Ako ay nandito pa rin, kailanma’y hindi nawala, taliwas sa ibinubulong ng hangin at ipinahahayag … Continue reading

Photosynthesis

Sometimes, I want to show the world how beautiful our secret has become. You know very well that the walls of our hidden garden which stand as witnesses to our shared memories can no longer contain it. And I, in my heart, don’t want to hide like this forever like a plant deprived of sunlight, … Continue reading

Withdrawal Method

I had my first taste of cigarette smoke when I was in grade five. I no longer remember what happened exactly but I am sure that it wasn’t a good experience.

Kuwentong Pusa

April 6, 2009 Noong isang araw lamang, sa aking paglalakad pauwi mula sa eskuwela ay nakakita ako ng isang maliit kuting sa daan. Ito’y halatang bagong silang pa lamang dahil nakapikit pa din ang mga mata. Halos madurog ang puso ko habang pinapanood ang kuting na iginagapang ang sarili sa masukal na daan. Binagalan ko … Continue reading
