You can’t find the words to describe me.
I am known and unknown to you.
I am a familiar face and a stranger at the same time.
You think you know me but you are doubtful.
You look for the slightest touch of familiarity but it’s not there.
You stare and wonder and ask yourself
“Who is she?”
Imong dagway ang ako makita
Inig piyong ug buka niining akong mga mata.
Sa damgo ug sa pagmata
Ikaw pirmi ang gipangita.
Hinaot imong masayran
Ang pagbati nga di kabayran.
Ug hinaot ang akong dagway
Mao sad ang imong pangitaon kanunay.
Your face is what I see
When these eyes are closed as well as when they are open.
In dreams and upon waking
I look only for you.
I’m hoping you would know
This unfathomable love.
And that it is my face
That you seek for all the time.
I keep hiding behind smiles
Sometimes it’s hard to tell if they’re even real
They look, they stare
They wonder, they dare
They ask me why I’m still single
It sometimes makes me feel worthless, hence, I don’t mingle
They talk, they whisper
Words can hurt, they can blister
And even without a word I feel they’re saying smugly
You’re still single because you’re ugly
Judge me for how I look
And you have already condemned me
It’s like the sun shines everytime he smiles
A light in that look
A hint of glitter
The warmest smile
A dashing air of grace and kindness
Where, oh where could such young lad be?
I looked at myself in the mirror and saw someone else
She looked pretty with all the colors painted on her face
Her hair looked well kept
She was almost perfect.
People couldn’t believe it was her
Their reaction said it all
But despite loving how she looked that night
She still prefers to keep it simple and light.
She loved looking pretty outside
But still prefers the beauty that is found within
Oh what do you see?
Beauty that’s skin deep
You think it’s love
You think it’s real
But it’s all facade
All just what you see on the outside
Do you really see me?
I’ve fallen for someone beyond my reach
I am non existent to him
I know better and should practice what I preach.
But how do you get over someone who was never yours?
The craziness within is slowly taking its course.
I sing his songs and see his face, imagining things that would never be
I know it is crazy,
I know this will go away……eventually
For now, I will let my imagination run wild until I am set free
It was your face I saw
It was your face that greeted me
It was your face that haunted my dreams
It was your face
…that captured me
