Hey there, scribblers and avid readers! I surely miss this space, I’ve been in hiatus for like almost two months. Why? I’m not sure either. I honestly didn’t write anything within that period. I may have posted a new poem on my other blog, but that was written long before I got into this “writer’s block” stage.
So, what’s new? I recently attended a Philippine Literature writing workshop and it was a blast! I can’t go into detail, but I really learned a lot. Somehow it has been an eye opener because guiltily, I never used a Philippine setting for my poems and seldom uses the Filipino language. Which in contrary, I am in the Philippines, I am a natural born Filipino, so what was I trying to prove by writing with a very small trace of my home country? These were just my thoughts lately. I’m not sure how to start yet but I guess I’m going to need to study more of our own literature because seeing the works of my fellow Filipinos, it makes me love and be prouder of my own country’s treasures all the more.
Anyway, I wish I could write more and not just post a very random thought like this. See you around, lovely creatures! 😉
🎶 Maybe I was naive,
Got lost in your eyes
And never really had a chance.
My mistake I didn’t know to be in love 🎶
Enter this Taylor Swift song in the background. Funny how I easily fell for your words and enjoyed the time we spent talking to each other — joking around like real couples, ignoring the fact that there’s no us. I hated myself for not having second thoughts or safety precautions. But to be honest with you, I really thought opposites do attract. But we’re not magnets. I may be your sunshine, but you came in like thunder — and I don’t know why I danced with you in the storm. And you’re just so into our conversations that it absent-mindedly made me want you.
I got to know your other side — including the murky past — but now I’m not sure if they weren’t lies. Made up stories because I am that kind of girl who would always sympathize, who’s completely innocent with your worldly ways and masked appearance, a kind of girl who’ll be so accepting and accommodating. That even when I get hurt, I will just move on and write a good poem out of it.
Thank you for the show, thank you for revealing who you really are. But don’t get me wrong. I am not going to judge nor hate you. I will still pray that someday, you will receive the love you deserve. And so will I.
