Habang sakay ng jeep
binabaybay ang kalsada
bigla kita naisip
nawasak ang barikada,

Hindi dahil sa may naalala
parang wala lang nga
kinatok mo na lang ako
patuloy ang pag-nganga,

Kailan mo kaya ako lilisanin
napapagod na din ako
ayoko na kita isipin
literal na gago na ako.

There’s always a boy 
who look so cute
and nice
like someone
in our dream,

His smile 
that talks
his eyes
that wander
oh! I can’t resist,

And then by surprise
the boy we love
is a sad story
his heart beats
for another boy.

The last letter you gave to me
the one attached in a book
I read a hundred times
I saved as my remembrance
your words were not that clear
it was like a break-up letter
even there was never an us
I read every night
glued to my wall
I read every morning
imagining the impossible things
and now, I threw it away
no more remembering you
it’s time to wake up. 

Doon sa may abangan ng bus
na kitang nagkatayo
nakaporma at gwapong gwapo
tila may inaantay
tila may lakad ka 
teka, may lakad ka talaga
kaya nga andun ka
nag aabang
nakaporma
gwapong gwapo,

Doon sa may abangan ng bus
nakatayo ako at nag iisa
nag aabang ng masasakyan
pero hindi mo ako nakita
o baka nakita mo ako
pero ayaw mo ako makita
kaya kunwari di mo ako nakita
umaasang ikaw ay lilingon
tatawagin ang pangalan ko
pero wala,

Doon sa may abangan ng bus
na una akong sumakay
hindi mo pa rin ako nililingon
di ko alam kung wala ka masakyan
o ayaw mo lang ako kasabay
habang papalayo ang bus
nakadungaw ako sa bintana
sinisilip ang iyong mukha
umaasang ikaw ay lilingon
kahit isang sulyap lang. 

Pwede bang sabihin mo
na mahal mo din ako?
kahit hindi totoo
gusto ko lang magulat
para mawala yung sinok ko

I love you.
You love him.
You don’t love me. 
He doesn’t love you. 

Paper covers rock.
Scissors cut paper.
Rock crushes scissors.

Why am I sad?
Stop crying please. 

My love story. 

Check. Follow. Eat.

Check. Follow. Eat.

Ilang beses na kita napapaginipan
pilit ko na nga iniiwasan
pero ikaw parin ang nasa isipan
daig ko pa nga ang nasiraan,

Ilang beses ko na sinabihan ang sarili
pero hindi parin ako mapakali
di sinasadyang masabi
na sana ikaw ay nasa aking tabi,

Itinulak mo na ako palayo
pinagkamalan na ako’y may toyo
dumaan na ang ilang bagyo
pero nangangarap pa din ako na maging tayo,

Siguro tama nga sila
wala na akong pag-asa
umiibig na lang akong mag-isa
kahit alam kong manhid ka talaga,

Pero ano ang aking magagawa
ikaw lang ang minsan sa aki’y nagpatawa
hindi na nga ako nagsasawa
sa luha kong daig pa ang lawa,

Malay mo, maramdaman mo din
maramdaman at iyong dinggin
o baka nahihiya ka lang sabihin
na kaya mo rin naman akong mahalin.

"

Cold weather, warm coffee
missing you
put on my jacket
walked a mile 
thinking of you
stranger passing by
street lights on
fog all over my eyes
where are you?
a man appeared
knife pointed at me
angry words beside my ear
I need you
lying down, blood running
is this goodbye? 

"

One night
it was raining outside
the news didn’t inform me
good thing I’m with you
you let me stay in your place
just the two of us,

One look
you suddenly showed up
no notice at all
surprisingly noticeable
wearing just your boxer
so tight it makes me cry,

One bed
we shared it for the first time
I felt your warm arm
bumped my helpless arm
you held my hand
and then kissed me,

One morning
I went hope without waking you up
you don’t have your boxer anymore
it was already on the floor
I picked it up and kept it in my bag
I went home.

"

It’s three in the morning and just like the other three in the morning, I am still here, staring at your picture, the one I captured when you told me to shoot you using my camera. I am still here, wandering in the cold breeze of the morning, waiting for a miracle that you will remember me and send me a text message, saying that you miss me, the way I miss you. I am still here, asking myself with the same question I had in the past few months, looking for answers that will help me understand why you suddenly went away, why didn’t you choose me, why did you have to let me fall in love with you and then let me drown with all these desperations to have you, to be with you. I am still here, and I know that this is stupid. 

Suot ko yung jacket mo
malamig kasi ngayon

alam kong hindi mo ito bigay
inangkin ko lang talaga
naiwan mo ito dati samin
tinanong mo ako kung nakita ko
pero tinanggi ko
tinago ko ito
at ngayon ay gamit ko,

Ramdam ko pa din yung init
parang hinahaplos mo ako
pakiramdam ko yakap mo ako
damang dama ko ang braso mo
sulit din naman pala lahat
sa ganitong paraan lang kita
mayayakap at madadama
sa ganitong paraan lang sasaya
oo na, desperado na kung desperado. 

Umulan na naman pala
basa na naman ang kalsada
sigurado matrapik sa EDSA
teka, may payong ka ba?

Umuulan din noong araw na yun
okay pa tayo noon
galing tayo doon
patungo sa dako paroon, 

Uulan pa kaya ulit
di naman sa nagiging makulit
pero baka sakaling pwedeng ipilit
wag mo na itanong kung bakit,

Ulan na sa aki’y nagpapaalala
ikaw at ako’y magkasama
walang payong na dala
pero tayo’y pa din masaya

Ang lamig ng mga oras na iyon
pakiramdam ko nasa States na ako
nanginginig na ang aking mga tuhod
naninigas na ang mga daliri
pero naibsan ito
nang binalot mo ang jacket mo sa akin
lamig na lamig ka din naman
pero pinahiram mo pa din ako
hindi ko tuloy alam kung may sapi ka
o sadyang mabait lang talaga
nakaramdam na ako ng init
hindi lang mula sa jacket
kungdin sa kilig na pinaramdam mo
salamat huh
pero sa totoo lang
ang lamig pa din.

"Teka kulang pa ata
dadagdagan ko pa
tatlong kutsarang kape
sa isang tasang tubig
mainit na mainit
walang asukal
para matapang
purong puro
parang pagmamahal ko sayo."
