i hope you know i really miss you
your company, our conversations
and the stories and secrets that we share
not exactly sure which one i miss more
the way that you smile or laugh
or the way that you make me laugh
i even miss the funny faces you make
and all the teasing that you always do
although the mature jokes i can do without
i miss the hugs you give when i need them
and the afternoons we spend just talking
you're an unexpected friend that i don't want to forget
and i simply wouldn't have it any other way

Saturday, 27 February 2010


i'm slowly losing my inspiration
i'm running out of things to say
i'd start something i can't finish
i'm not sure what i really want to do
but like a puzzle with a missing piece
i won't be complete 'till i find you

Friday, 26 February 2010


i'd get lost in the music
and dance all night long
i'd sing as loud as i can
pour all emotions in the song
i could cry myself to sleep
or drink to temporarily forget
i'd look for comfort in my friends
as they bring chocolate, ice cream and tissues
when i'm all by myself, i'd pray for strength and healing
as there's only so much pain my broken heart can bear

Thursday, 25 February 2010


i put my ipod on shuffle
and i've got my speakers on high
drown out everything else around
i'd be stuck in my own little world
and let the music do the talking

Wednesday, 24 February 2010


i feel so very tired
my feet are aching
my eyelids are heavy
my emotions have run high
i don't want to think
or even feel right now
i just want to sleep
forget for a while
then wake up for life goes on

Tuesday, 2 February 2010


it's the simple things that you do
that's got me slowly falling for you
it's when you stand a little too close to me
that gives me the butterflies in my stomach

it's the way that we always get along
that allows me to be so comfortable
it's like we've known each other for so long
that we simply understand one another

it's how comfortable we are even in silence
that i constantly look for and miss your company
it's in your eyes and the way that you smile
that makes me heart beat so i know it's real

a new year means a brand new start
we make resolutions we're meant to keep
whatever happened the year before is now a memory
and any mistake made is a lesson to be learned
we grow older and wiser with each day
and there's people we meet that's here to stay
now we're a step closer to reaching our dreams
there's no stopping us now as we conquer our fears

Thursday, 28 January 2010


it's dark outside and the moon is already out
the night gets quieter as it's almost midnight
the river's still while the stars start to show
i'm slowly falling asleep, sitting here by my window
can't help but smile, as my dreams are filled with you
and i'd be waking up to a beautiful sunrise

Wednesday, 27 January 2010


i'm staring out the window again
not sure how long i've been sitting here
i'd look real sad to anyone who passes by
i know i shouldn't really be like this
but i can't help it if i feel this way
so i lie down, close my eyes and try to sleep
hoping to wake up without this aching feeling

Monday, 25 January 2010


overthinking isn't really good
nothing actually comes out of it
i'd only get more stressed at every thought
my frustrations build as i figure out my worries
i'd even fall asleep, staring at the ceiling, thinking
i'm so deep in my thoughts that i always seem to be out of it
constantly distracted -- i can't focus on anything else

Sunday, 24 January 2010


i'm learning to keep my distance from you
eventhough i'm not sure why it hurts
there's just this aching feeling of longing
and the nervousness whenever you're around
as if the room gets smaller and i can't breathe
so i'll say this as honestly as i can
i miss you and i'll leave it at that

Wednesday, 20 January 2010


overthinking things isn't really necessary
but i can't seem to get it off my mind
talking about it certainly doesn't help at all
not sure what can be done to change the situation

there's really no one to blame for this
what's probably left is just some pride
you're not making the first move and neither will i
so nothing's happening and we're running out of time

we can always just let things be
and maybe it'll somehow fix itself
it's a new year so it'll be a brand new start
and maybe, just maybe, we'd both be alright

Monday, 18 January 2010


it's actually getting on my nerves
i'm annoyed and just really frustrated
i don't remember when or how this started
all i know is this awkward feeling around you

we don't talk like we used to
we don't even say hi anymore
it's like you're not really there
we simply ignore each other

i don't know what to do to change things
and what if it's only me who feels this way
i'd hate to lose a friend over something this silly
maybe i'll just let it be and somehow it'll be alright

Saturday, 16 January 2010


polka dots everywhere and fruits of one shape
i've got coins in both pockets and the champagne's ready
we're outside watching some early fireworks
while the tv's switched on as we await for the countdown
we slowly start counting down from ten
then here it is, the clock strikes midnight
we scream, shout and then give each other a hug
and as we watch the fireworks display in awe,
i'm glad to have welcomed the new year with you

Sunday, 10 January 2010


sipping on hot chocolate never felt so good
especially after playing out in the snow
we didn't care if it was actually freezing cold
'cause gloves in hand and layer upon layer 'till we're warm
but now inside, the fireplace and this hot chocolate
that's what makes it all worthwhile

Friday, 8 January 2010


looking out excitedly outside the window
i'm happy and surprised to see it's snowing
what was green before is now icy white
so i'll build a snowman while you make your snow angel
once that's done, we'll have a snowball fight and have some fun

Tuesday, 29 December 2009


i should stop staring at you when you're not looking
if i continue, i'm afraid i'd be in too deep
i need to avoid your smile, most especially your eyes
because i'd probably fall for you harder than i already do

i don't really intend to make the first move
and i'll soon be tired waiting for you to altleast try
but i don't want to lose a friend either
if you actually don't feel the same way

things are already slowly changing
all because of how i feel for you
but i'm still protective of my heart
which is why i'm keeping my distance

only time can tell what's in store in the future
if only i had a time machine or fast forward button
because i really want to know what will happen
so i can try to forget the agony of waiting

Monday, 28 December 2009


i'm not sure anymore
of how to act around you
i'm so very confused
can't feel what's on your mind

seems we don't talk like before
we're slowly drifting apart
maybe i should learn to stay away
avoid you or pretend you're not there

i don't really know what i'd get out of this
maybe i'm falling for you too fast too soon
this is probably the way to protect my little heart
from any more pain and sadness that liking you will bring

Saturday, 26 December 2009


just how much can my confused little heart handle
when mixed emotions and crossed signals get in the way
because three guys and one heart doesn't really add up

one's an old crush, it's been three years
until now, i'm still crushing from afar
remaining just good friends, nothing more, nothing less

another is becoming a good friend
sooner or later, the teasing would start
on second thought, it might have started already

the last one has become a close friend of mine
other people are somehow used to seeing us together
while others actually want us to be more than just close friends

three different guys
three different crushes
three sets of butterflies

Wednesday, 23 December 2009


i'm not sure anymore
of how to act around you
i'm so very confused
can't read what's on your mind

seems we don't talk like before
we're slowly drifting apart
maybe i should learn to stay away
avoid you or pretend you're not there

i don't really know what i'd get out of this
maybe i'm falling for you too fast too soon
this is probably the way to protect my little heart
from any more pain and sadness that liking you will bring

Monday, 21 December 2009


because Christmas is near
i can't help but be excited
wrapping gifts to put under the Christmas tree
and singing Christmas songs at all Christmas parties

the colorful lights and the sparkly decor
fill the streets and houses i pass by
santa claus and his Christmas elves are ready too
ready to send cheer to all kids around the world

it's always been my favorite time of the year
so when September comes, i start counting down
i look forward to Simbang-gabi and Noche Buena
and most especially spending more time with friends and family

Friday, 18 December 2009


i miss you -- understatement of the year
no other way to describe how i really feel
feeling helpless knowing this out of my control
at the same time wishing you're feeling the same way

i miss you -- that much i know is true
my heart's restless 'till i see you again
can't really explain why i feel this way
i'd fall asleep hoping to dream about you

Thursday, 17 December 2009


i've got all the motivation i need to write
but not exactly what i'd call inspiration
ranting is what i'm actually doing
putting all my heartache and sadness in words
this way seems to be so much safer
there'd be no hangover in the morning
just a reminder when i look back one day
of the on time i felt so vulnerable, so breakable

Monday, 7 December 2009


i keep replaying it in my mind
the way you laugh, the way you smile
the way you always try to make a joke
though not really funny, i still laugh along

it's so easy and comfortable to be around you
i always look forward to our life story conversations
where i enjoy learning more about you every time
and most of the time, you actually talk more than i do

though it's just been a while, you've been a good friend
somehow you can cheer me up whenever i'm down
and it can't be helped that you're real cute too
with all that, i'm just very glad i met you

Wednesday, 2 December 2009


my mind is tired from thinking
my heart is heavy from feeling
not exactly sure on how or what i should feel
or for whom would the feelings be for
confused little heart of mine is crying
both the happy tears and for another broken heart
who do i turn to now for comfort and advice
when someone once told me to follow my heart
which has led me to the situation i am in now

Monday, 30 November 2009


i'm on a plane to Rome
sitting by this window seat
looking out, all i see are clouds
all white, so peaceful and calm
anything else i see is a dot
and from your point of view down there
i'm part of the sky now

Sunday, 29 November 2009


all the stress is getting to me
i'm unsure how to deal with it
i want to scream to let it all out
also want to cry when it gets too much
i just want everything to be over with
to wake up from this nightmare
and get rid of this terrible headache
so i don't have to feel so blue

Saturday, 28 November 2009


i just want to write
my mind is screaming
my thoughts are floating
time is passing by

my dreams told me a story
while my mind has it on replay
i try to put it down on paper
before i slowly start to forget

like a fountain, it all just pours out
overflowing, word after word, line after line
being written down almost effortlessly
making it become a beautiful story to share

Thursday, 26 November 2009


i'm staring at the board
all i hear and see are numbers
but all i can think of are words
all meaningless unless put together
so i'm trying to make them rhyme
and all i came up with are these six lines

Monday, 23 November 2009


i know i've just been wasting time
by sitting here and daydreaming
i can't really help it, can't be stopped
because it's constantly on my mind

i've got all the inspiration that i need
mix it with some music to finish a song
but all i'd rather do is stay in bed
stare at the ceiling and dream of you

Friday, 20 November 2009


things seem to be slowly changing
people are starting to have their assumptions
and giving their opinions on matters of the heart
but why am i the one under pressure
while you stand there quite clueless
although i don't really want you to know
afraid things just won't turn out right

Monday, 16 November 2009


what do you do
when what was hypothetical before
is now slowly becoming reality

how do you deal
with all the thoughts and feelings
that's clouding your mind and filling your heart

when do you stop
overthinking each word, each line, each laugh
or overanalysing every scenario and every conversation

how do you know
if you're ready, if it's true or if it's right
and that's time to stop daydreaming because it's real

when do you know
that you should stop thinking and make a decision
to just let go and move on or maybe hold on, just a little tighter

Saturday, 14 November 2009


missing you is an understatement
there are no words to really describe how i feel
i feel this emptiness and loneliness of being incomplete
there's this longing and the restlessness of the heart

through the crowd, i keep on looking
for that familiar face i want to see
i listen to all the sounds and conversations
hoping that i might be able to just hear your laugh

because of that, i'd know that you're around
and i would be able to see your smile
only then i wouldn't be so sad or lonely
because i don't have to miss you anymore

Tuesday, 10 November 2009


being unlucky in love is the reason i forgot what love was about
but one day, all that changed for i started believing again
thanks to that unforgettable summer
i was staring to think there might be hope for me

there you were, another friendly face
a new friend, with a potential of being more
but i'm taking things slowly, there's no need to rush
don't really want to fall if i'm gonna get hurt in the end again

Thursday, 5 November 2009


love hasn't always gone my way before
everytime i fall, i just get hurt even more
tears were always shed for someone who couldn't stay
so i put my heart aside and leave love for some other day

maybe love isn't just for me
i gave up searching for something i couldn't see
i wanted something no one could give
everytime i got scared, i would just leave

i'm a hopeless romantic who believed in fairytales
but now i'm one of those who has given up on true love
no more daydreaming, no more wishing on stars
reality has set in that maybe love isn't for me

Saturday, 31 October 2009


can't get it out of my mind
distracted by what i'm feeling too
i'm on a look-out for your smile
or maybe i'd just hear you laugh
so i'll be able to catch a glimpse of you
and that will be enough to make my day

Friday, 30 October 2009


wherever i am, i seem to find myself thinking of you
on a bus, having lunch, in a lecture, thoughts fill my mind
then and there i realize why, i'm slowly falling for you
unexpected, unintended, surprisingly it all just happened

i don't want to overthink anything
or overanalyse situations we were in
i don't want to assume something
only to be disappointed in the end

unsure what to do or how to handle it
should i pursue it and get closer to you
or should i try to stay away by ignoring this
but maybe i'll just let it be and let life happen

Thursday, 29 October 2009


it hasn't been mine for long
and now i've already lost it
i'm not sure when, where, how
or even why it happened
but now that it's missing, i don't feel to good
i feel like a kid who just lost her favorite toy
guess i'd admit i got used to having it around
everything's different now so i really want it back
but i don't even know where to start looking for it
maybe i'll just end up getting another one
something i'll settle for, that's unlike the original
or maybe i'll just find it when i least expect to
and if not, then that's something i have to get used to

Friday, 23 October 2009


the stars seem to be out tonight
and i can't help but stare at them
this doesn't happen very often
so this simply makes me smile
i think they're just so beautiful
that i'd like to make one wish
i close my eyes for a moment
and i find myself thinking of you
hoping that wherever you are
you're looking up at the dark night sky
and making one wish on a star too

Thursday, 22 October 2009


i wake up to the sun in my face
it's such a good morning to just stay in bed
i get ready and bring out my shades
now i'm heading to the park just to relax and chill out
and maybe i'll bring some of my friends along

Saturday, 17 October 2009


you've got this smile on your face
that intrigues me to what you're thinking
it's your mysteries personality you don't show
with the lifestyle you live that i don't understand
now i got to remind myself why i like you
when i don't seem to know you at all

Friday, 16 October 2009


i'm back to singing all these love songs
find a lyric with which i can relate to
you'll hear me humming a familiar tune
with a smile on my face and twinkle in my eyes
but don't be fooled, i'm not in love, no not yet
i'm just falling for him, slowly but hard
waiting for all my daydreaming to turn into reality

Thursday, 8 October 2009


trust your heart to me
i promise never to break it
put your faith in me
know that i'll always be around
beleive all that i will say
i'd stay honest and faithful
listen to the beat of my heart
look me straight in the eyes
and you'll feel what i feel
so as you lightly squeeze my hand
and show a reassuring smile
i'd happily take that as a yes

Tuesday, 6 October 2009


my heart is heavy
my head is spinning
i'm thinking like crazy
can't get it out of my mind
i want to hug you
i'd take in your scent
and lay my head on your shoulder
hoping maybe everything will be alright

Saturday, 3 October 2009


in the darkness of the night
there's one candle that's shining bright
it's your guide to your destination
in the journey you chose to go alone to
it's your spark of hope
when you think all is lost
your constant reminder, as long as it's burning
never to give up and keep fighting
and just like the candle on the cake
make a wish before blowing it out
somehow knowing you'd be okay
and everything is gonna b alright

Monday, 28 September 2009


without any warning, without a clue
our lives change right in front of our eyes
disaster strikes when we least expect it
how do you start over when you are the victims
what can you do to help those in need
donate some money, clothes and food
volunteer time and all effort to help
offer a prayer too for everyone's safety
spread the news so more people are aware
together we can move forward to make a new start
all for a better tomorrow for the Philippines

to help, you can:

Sunday, 27 September 2009


this crush doesn't seem to be going away soon
i need to stay away before i fall harder
you seem to be perfect that everyone likes you
i'm afraid that this crush would turn into more

whenever you're around, i always want to be near you
i enjoy all our conversations and the laughs we share
you're a true gentleman, sweet and quite smare too
how can anyone not find you charming at all

it's actually great my parents already like you
my mom trusts you while my dad has plans for you
ok, so maybe i think i'm already falling hard
hoping that you will be there to catch me

Friday, 25 September 2009


how do you finish writing a poem
when all inspiration is lost
how do you finish cooking your meal
when all ingredients run out
how do you finish singing a shong
when all melody is gone
how are you suppose to smile again
when you're dreaming with a broken heart

Thursday, 24 September 2009


struggling to keep both eyes open
trying hard not to fall asleep
maybe i'll get a book to read
or turn to a random channel on tv
anything to keep me awake
i don't want to fall asleep and then wake up
only to find out everything wasn't real
afraid that it was all just a dream

Sunday, 20 September 2009


it certainly has been a while now
slowly getting used to not having you around
i wonder how much longer i should wait
before i'll be able to talk to you and see you again

each day just seems to drag on
nothing new, exciting or interesting is happening
another ordinary day for this life routine
i'd let life run it's course only to suddenly be surprised

feelings change just like people do
things happen for a reason is what they all say
i'd get some rest and just let things be
and maybe i'd be able to sleep well tonight
