No one’s breaking your heart anymore. You’re breaking your own.
Ack! Finally someone discovered the term! Guilty.
There exists a very particular breed of human in the world, one that merges the qualities of near apathetic lethargy and a manic desire to achieve. I don’t know how they exist, I don’t know what had to go askew to create such deep conundrums out of people, but I do know that they possess the exact set of traits that somehow also make them most successful: their laziness lends itself to their drive to innovate and make life easier and better for themselves.
Yet, nobody really knows the reality of which these people live: they dust their laziness under the rug or don’t have the energy to self-promote their success… so you never really know where they’re at. You probably might not even know if you’re one of them, but fear not, as I am here to help you self-diagnose and tell you all the weird things that happen…

I looked and found my chest empty.
A void where heartbeat ceases.
The shattered, broken heart is gone.
I should have saved some bits and pieces
And now I’m left with none.
A corner that is dark and bare.
Stripped clean of love and all the cares.
So I dug and dug.
Deeper and deeper.
Then I dug some more.
And in that hole, a seed I planted.
Hoping there can grow another,
One that’s shiny, happy and new.
For it is still dark and bare,
The place where my heart once were.
Galing sa puso,
Paakyat sa utak.
May sariling buhay.
Sa kahit anong paraan.
Itong mga salita.
Basta palayain mo.

Excitedly she awoke
this twenty-second of December
for she received a message the day before.
She showered and got dressed
and went about her usual day,
counting hours to four.
And when at last the hour came
she almost skipped had she not contained herself.
Bought herself some icecream cone
and stumped her feet to a song.
‘Ah, he’s here.’ she thought beaming.
‘Happy Birthday.’ he said. Not looking at her.
‘I came by to give you your present.’
He smiled a smile that did not reach his eyes.
‘I love you.’ She said. Almost in a whisper.
Silently hoping but acknowledging
the thing she already knew.
He looked down and then away not knowing what to say.
‘Oh, okay.’ she said and nodded.
She turned her heel not bothering to say good bye.
She waited for the bus. Anxious to get home.
‘Surprise!’ cried everyone.
Not quite. she thought.
In this room all the people she holds dear
burst out to a BIRTHDAY SONG,
while she burst into tears.
‘Oh, look tears of joy!’ someone said.
Ironic was the word.
for her heart is sinking in sea of loneliness
on this twenty-second of December.
And the Birthday girl smiled a sad, sad smile
only she knows about.
For she knew, things will never be the same.

I just signed up with WordPress to try it out because the new look of Blogspot interface is really, really (really!) complicated for me. But I think I’m going to move everything here.
Look at the Blogger page.
Anyway I’ll go ahead and check this one out. I can just delete it if I could anyway so.. Well, here we go. 🙂
