Ang pagsigaw ng hangin


Sinigaw mo, sinigaw ko. Ang pader lang ang nakarinig. Umiyak ka, umiyak ako. Nagunaw ang mundo… Mo at ako. Pareho lamang tayong nadurog. Ibinulong ko sa pader. Ngunit bumalik ang mga salita. Humawi ang hangin at hindi ako nakahinga. Sinampal ako ng ilang ulit ng bawat letrang iyong binanggit. Namatay ang pakiramdam at naglaho ng … Continue reading

Ang dasal ng isang bata (For Media Writing Subject)


Ito ay isinulat ko ng isang gabi lamang. Out of frustration, out of guilt and out of determination.

Isang bote lang para sa isang libong kwento ng isang kaibigan. Ang paglaglag ng maskara at pagtanggap sa katotohan. Isang sikreto na hangga’t maaari ay ibabaon namin sa aming isipan, gaano man katagal ang pang habang buhay. — Malapit na magdilim. Mamaya. Mamaya ay tatawagin ka na naman ng mahalimuyak niyang pagtangis. Tinatawag.. Pauli-ulit.. Papunta … Continue reading

Ariel and Jen


Isang bilyong tao o higit pa sa pitong kontinente ang nabubuhay at namamatay sa nag-iisang mundo. Minsan o kadalasan sa karami-raming mga tao na nakakasalubong mo, sa bawat mukhang nakikita mo sa daan, sa tricycle, sa jeepney, bus o lrt. At sa bawat estrangherong nakakabangga o nakakagitgitan mo. Hindi natin alam kung anong kalokohan na … Continue reading

Ito na ang huling “kembot”


For the first time. I am at a loss for words. I can’t write anything on my blog. I just knew that I waited long enough; my parents waited long enough for this. And I won’t deny them the moment, either way, I won’t deny it for myself too. For the first time. I will … Continue reading

Sa huling pagkakataon


Paalam. Panandaliang ligaya. Pansamantalang pagibig. Hiram na sandali. Alam mong mali. Alam kong mali. Hanggang sa huli. Alam nating mali. Subalit. Sa bawat sambit. Pangalan mo’y bitbit. Tiyak at walang kapalit. Damdaming aking nais ipilit. Minamahal kita. Mula sa aking dilang makata. Pabor mula sa iyo aking sinta. Sampalin mo ko ng bawat salita. Paki-lakasan … Continue reading

Which side am I?


I’ve been playing this denial game for a long time. Until it consumed me. And the truth that repeatedly smashing my judgment. I must now let the story travel and expand. Today, again, for the nth time whenever I meet new people, they only ask one thing. Asking one of the biggest and major questions … Continue reading

A love letter to my eighteen year old baby sister


  I have prayed for you.   When Mary Grace’s (my childhood friend) sister was born I was envious.   I want a playmate. My elder sisters are seven years apart from me at that time and they didn’t want to include me in their circle and so I felt left-out. I wanted to have somebody … Continue reading

And because a song keeps replaying on my playlist in more … Continue reading

April 17, 2014 [ Posted originally at Goodreads by same author] 2 out of 5 stars. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a 2011 novel of Ransom Riggs. It’s sad.
