Sitting on the side of the boat
The sun, hot and cruel
I dip my feet on the water
Where it feels cool
My sunglasses on,
I looked up at the sky
Not a cloud in sight
I let out a little sigh
Not because I don’t like the view
But because none of it is true
I wish I was out there enjoying the sea
Swimming or floating along
But right now it’s important to stay at home
This is where I currently belong
Summer is here, yet inside I stay
Dreaming of the waves, the sand, and the salty air
Looking forward to the day when this is all over
Oh yes! To dream, I dare.
I miss hugging the people that are close to me. Right now, we have to keep our distance.
Even a simple high five has to be avoided.
Once normalcy returns, would you please give me a hug?
Hello earthlings! How’s quarantine (For those placed on quarantine)? Here in Cebu, Philippines, we are now on Enhanced Community Quarantine. Good thing I still get to work from home so I don’t have to worry about going to and from work.
How are things where you are? What do you miss?
…..I am bold
…..I am the best
Well loved if not, the most loved
I have him in my arms
But who is him?
“Him” can be anyone and can be surprising
Sometimes, I’d like to stay longer in my dreams
It’s strange how real it felt
His face was so close to mine
I held them
I felt it
He was real
And then I woke up
But his smell and presence remained
One summer day on a summer night I found myself
And there I stayed
One word to melt a heart
One word to break it
One word to tear it apart
One word to mend it
Four letters you can keep
Or simply let it slip away
Diri sa akong dughan
Nagpabilin ang kasakit
Diri sa akong huna-huna
Imong pangalan ang gisangpit
Diri ikaw nagpabilin
Here in my heart
The hurt remains
Here in my mind
I scream still your name
Even until now
Here you remain
It was dark and freezing
I was cold and sneezing
I stood alone in the rain
I felt every muscle tense with pain
I didn’t run, I didn’t walk, I just stood there
I didn’t give much care
I let it envelope me, for once I found peace
Is it easier to hurt than to love?
Easier to promise the stars above
Than to just be kind to the needy.
Is it easier to walk away than to stay?
Easier to promise a better day
Than make one for someone.
Sometimes it’s easier to lose hope than be hopeful
Because the people now have made me doubtful
And that’s a sad thing, I reckon.
