CLOSURE

by GERALD LEVERT

rain 21 °C

Hoo...ooh...babe
Baby
Hoo...hoo...ooh...
Oh, babe
Oh, babe
Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby

When did you stop lovin' me
What did I do so wrong
That you had to leave
When did you stop wantin' me
No letters, no call
Girl, you know I'm needy

Baby, this thing has to get told
On my mind, my body, and soul, baby

Can't get you out of system
Out of my head
Out of my future
Out of my bed

I hear your name
I see your face
I lose all composure
I need to see you one more time
I need closure

Hoo...ooh... (Hoo, baby, baby)

Can we go somewhere, baby
And talk about
All the things I did to stress you out (Hoo...hoo...)
I won't be satisfied (No way)
Till I understand why
Why you ain't here in my life

Can you just give me that much (Yeah)
Don't leave me hanging without a crutch

Can't get you out of system (Can't get you out)
Out of my head (Out of my head)
Out of my future (My future)
Out of my bed (My bed)

I hear your name (Hear your name)
I see your face (See your face, babe)
I lose all composure (Hoo, baby)
I need to see you one more time
I need closure (Ooh...closure)

Hoo...ooh...ooh...closure (Closure)
Hoo...ooh...

Why, that is the question
Every day I ask myself
Since you went away, baby (Hoo, baby)
I wasn't perfect (No way)
Tell me were you (Were you, babe)
You said everyday I love you (You said, you said)

Can't get you out of system (Ooh...hoo...)
Out of my head
Out of my future (No way)
Out of my bed (No way, baby)

I hear your name (I hear your name)
I see your face (I see your face, babe)
I lose all composure (I get all chocked up inside)
I need to see you one more time
I need closure (Closure)

Hoo...ooh...ooh...closure (I need to know why did you
leave me, baby)
Hoo...ooh...ooh...closure (Why did you go away, baby)
Hoo...ooh...ooh...closure (Why did you pick up and
leave me)
I need to see you one more time (Na-na-na-na-na-na)
I need closure

UNSPOKEN

=== tEaLa ===

overcast 30 °C

You came to my life
Quietly…simply…
And the world stood still…
I could not say a word…
Not a simple gesture show the feelings kept in my heart…

So I loved you in silence
Worshipped you from a distance
Dreamt of you from a far

I wanted to say "I love you"
I wanted you to know I care…
But I was afraid…
Afraid that you’d only laugh at me…

In silence, then will I just love you…
In silence, there will I care…
Because in silence… I have found the fulfillment of my dreams…

DANCE OF LIFE

by JOE D' MANGO

snow -23 °C

There were two hearts that met in a dance. That moment was magical. There was a sweet song playing, there was harmony…and soon…love in the air. They fell in love and started building castles I their dreams and promised forever with all certainty. But, somewhere, in the midst of the fun, they got lost in the dance, something went wrong, but they can never do anything. They were just drifting away, their fortress falling apart. There were so many questions…but no one had an answer.

The music stopped…and there was silence…

When we truly loved someone, we give our best and let that person see the pureness of our intention. But sometimes, that person makes us cry and hurts us for the wrong reason. That someone must have loved us, but he has not loved us enough to make him stand for what he truly felt.

Now, we are faced with the seemingly impossible task of forgetting. We have burdened ourselves long enough, but we still can’t get out of this emotional trap. Let us remember that the more we try to forget someone we love…the more painful letting go will become…

Sometimes, we never had to take that person out of our hearts at all…for he will always be there…no matter how we drive him away…It isn’t his presence that make this difficult. It is our stubbornness to accept our destiny that aligns forgetting next to impossible. We keep a cold face but deep in our hearts, there is still that lingering hope for reconciliation. Somehow, we still believe that we can rekindle small embers and relight the fire that once burned in our hearts. These thoughts give us hope… but also breed the seeds of loneliness and despair.

The only way to forget is to accept…and the only way to move on is to look ahead…and let the footprints of the past…be blown by the wind of time…only then can our hearts find a partner in the dance of life…and hopefully…never get lost again…

ECHOES OF OUR HEARTS

by JOE D' MANGO

snow -23 °C

Sometimes we close our eyes and just listen to the echoes of our hearts. We all fall in love and there are times that we love so much that we lose ourselves in our own emotions. More often than that, we wonder why there are love that grows and love that grows cold.

We would start to search for answers, and try to find where love has gone wrong. But in the end, we find ourselves where we started. We cannot question love when it has its own reasons. Love will always be as it always has been. Silent. Mysterious. And deeply profound.

Many of us believe that love is forever. That love never dies. Only to be disillusioned in the end, when we find our hands empty and our hearts longing. We’ve mistakenly have looked at love as a need to be fulfilled. But love is only a gift given to us. We should not hold it in our hands, for we may never find the strenght to let it go when it decides to leave. We should only embrace its warmth and glow while it lasts, and then freely open our arms when it’s time to say goodbye.

When we fall in love with someone, we don’t want that feeling to end for it is everything we are and everything we wanted to be. We pray that love will stay and grow in our hearts. But if it doesn’t then we should never let our lives be taken by it for life should not end where heartaches begin. There is always a reason why we have to move on. When we have to say goodbye to the feelings we wanted to stay forever let us not wave our hands with a heavy heart, for love will have to set its wing free and find a place where it belongs.

We may have lost it, but then again when we close our eyes and listen to the echoes of our hearts, we will hear that feeling resounding silently forever. Then we’ll know that it has never left us, for the good that we have become because of love will always stay. It will always be there reminding us that we should be thankful and happy not because we have lost love but because for once in our lives that feeling lived in our hearts and made us happy.

TRAGEDY OF LOVE

by JOE D' MANGO

snow -23 °C

They say that only time can heal the wounds of a broken heart. That time makes it easier to accept the loss of the people we love. It is a chain that all of us go through - falling in love, getting hurt and vowing not to love again, promising not to love again, and becoming miserable all our lives. It isn’t easy getting up on our feet after a crippling fall, but there is just no other way but to stand up and move on.

Nobody wants to become unhappy all his life. All of us know how love can bring magic into our lives. Have you ever realized how good it felt, waking up in the morning, knowing that somewhere out there, there’s a person who’s also thinking of you and feels exactly the way you do? Doesn’t it feel good looking forward to being with that warm sparkling glow in each of us?

Love brings us on the top of the world that we can conquer just about any obstacle that may come along our way. It is a great feeling love is. There’s probably nothing else in this world that can compare to this. There may be many of us who feel that love has passed us by, and finding someone we can share our lives with seems to be such a remote possibility. We watch stranger go by as time swiftly drifts away from us.

We may be in control of our lives but we feel somewhat helpless in out relationships. There is nothing permanent in this world, and not even those we cherish will be with us forever. There is no guarantee that comes with loving. It is always a risk getting involved with someone. But it is a risk that we have to take if we want to find real happiness; for there is no gain without pain. There is no permanence without commitment, and there is no lasting love without constant sacrifice.

The tragedy of love is in getting hurt. The tragedy of getting hurt is not wanting to love again, and the tragedy of not wanting love again is in being alone all of our lives. If it is what we want to be, then we could just stay in our shell and be miserably forgotten. But if it is love we choose, then there’s a promise of a new life, the joy in being able to share that life with someone, and the hope of finding something beautiful and keeping it forever.

missing_you.jpg

Hay... this week is the longest week for me....ang bagal nang oras.... kahit nag leave ako at 4 days n lng ang ipapasok... ang haba pa rin!!!! kasi ba nman... ang aking BFF (best friend forever) ay nagbakasyon engrande sa Island of Camiguin at ang aming Cook (as in taga-pagluto... SOSYAL KAMI E!) ay nagpursue nang carreer sa ibang lupalop nang mundo...

Buti na lang at nandito si Tito Sen. In fairness... lagi niya akong pinupuntahan sa station ko to check on me. Hay... pinagbilin siguro ako sa kanya ni Tito Bic. Ayaw lang magsalita ni Tito Sen dahil kanino ba ang loyalty niya? E di syempre don sa kapatid niya... hay naku... dahil sa nawala ang aking Cook wala na tuloy akong taga-timpla nang aking coffee from vendo, taga-init nang ulam thru microwave, taga- handa nang pagkain, taga - ligpit nang aking mga pinagkainan, at syempre taga - luto ng ulam tulad nang ampalaya con carne, porkchop, sinigang sa sampalok na manok, pork giniling with egg at kung anu-ano pa... makahanap na nga nang ibang cook.... hmmm.... sino kaya? i'll just survey the surroundings... but nothing compares to my Cook... sobrang bait... walang reklamo sa Amo...

enough of my Cook... pahinga na muna ako sa kakaisip sa kanya....

sa sobrang walang magawa dito sa aking munting palasyo... movie marathon ako...na-touch ako sa linyang ito

"ako...
ako ang problema!
kasi nasasaktan ako kahit hindi naman ako dapat nasasaktan...

sana kaya ko na lng tiisin ang sakit na nararamdaman ko...
kasi ako ang humiling nito di ba?
ako ang may gusto...
sana kaya ko ring sabihin sa iyo na masaya ako para sa iyo...
para sa inyo...
sana kaya ko...
sana kaya ko...
pero hindi e...
ang sama sama kong tao...
kasi ang totoo umaasa pa rin ako na sabihin mo..
sana ako pa rin...
ako na lng...
ako na lng ulit..."

familiar ba? well... john_lloyd.jpg

kanino ko kaya yon pwede sabihin? hmmm...

Panaginip

na nagpagulo sa isip...(wow magka-rhyme!)

rain

Nanaginip ako...last Thursday eto...bago ako pumasok sa work...hindi ko kilala ang mga tao pero parang pelikula...at nanonood lang ako as in IN BIG WIDE SCREEN!

SETTING: MALL/SA LOOB NG SHALA NA COFFEE SHOP
starbucks.jpg

CHARACTERS: GIRL (bratinela at maldita) and BOY (goodboy at heart throb)
BACKGROUND MUSIC: basta kahit ano basta mejo feel good...mga tipong STARBUCKS soundtrack

GIRL: (entering the coffee shop at natanaw c boy)
BOY: (wave sa girl)
GIRL: (lapit sa boy at sabay upo sa couch)
BOY: (abot nang frappe sa girl)
frappe.jpg

GIRL: Thanks! San ung baby mo?
BOY: Hindi ko na sinama. Galing ako office. Alam mo na?
GIRL: (mejo...ay nde pala mejo... as in super sad...) Ah...akala ko kasi kasama mo... (sabay sip sa frappe dahil sa sobrang kaba nasamid)
BOY: OK ka lng?
GIRL: ahuh... (pasosyal pa...pero obvious na tense na tense) Ano na!?!?!?! (maldita mode! ang bilis magtransform!effect yata nang frappe)
BOY: I just want to say goodbye and thank you personally...
GIRL: sus...wala un!
BOY: I've been wanting to tell you this before pa kaya lng lately lumalayo ka sa akin?
GIRL: hindi kaya...
BOY: Ay...hindi ba? So hallucination ko lng pala un?
GIRL: OO nman...adik ka kasi! joke... (not looking at all sa boy. bakit kaya?may tinatago?)
BOY: Mami-miss kita... (mukha namang all true ang sinasabi nung guy)
GIRL: (haba nang hair! kunwari dedma)(to herself "AKO RIN KAYA MAMIMISS KITA! NGAYON PA NGA LANG MISS NA KITA E!") (to the boy) As if nman... sa bait kong ito sa iyo?!?!?
BOY: No joke... I will miss you more than anybody else...
GIRL: Sabi mo e... (gustong maiyak...pero pigil na pigil...sakit non sa head...natry ko na un!)
BOY: Ikaw lang ung taong nagparamdam sa akin na hindi ako SPECIAL! Gulung-gulo nga ako sa iyo e. Minsan mabait ka sa akin at mas madalas BAD sa akin.
GIRL: Masanay ka na sa artista! (pretending pa rin...)
BOY: Alam mo bang ang bigat sa loob kapag hindi tayo nagbabatian?
GIRL: (to herself) Oo naman... as much as I want to say hi and makipagkwentuhan sa yo pero dedma na lng kasi ayoko nang nararamdaman kong ito (to the boy) sori nman...
BOY: I'll keep in touch...
GIRL: naku...kahit wag na! (nman...naiiyak na ang girl! pero pigil pa rin...ANG TATAG!) cge na... uwi ka na at kailangan ko ng lumayas (bka kapag hindi ko pa pinigilan e MAIYAK pa ako at MASABI KO ANG HINDI KO DAPAT MASABI!)
BOY: Ah ok... pwede pa hug?
GIRL: Huh?!?!?! (my goodness! this cannot be borrowed 1 from 3!)

si Boy ni-hug si Girl... (madramang tagpo na ito!) hindi na napigilan ni girlalu na maiyak sbay punas sa mala Claudine Barretto na luha na parang sinabi ni Direk Joyce na "TEARS YOU FALL AS SOON AS BOY EMBRACES GIRL, OK?!?!?!" SAGOT NAMAN NI TEARS, "OK, DIREK!"

BOY: Why ka umiiyak? Hindi naman ako mamamatay ah... (while punas sa luha ni girl)
GIRL: (nagtransform na nman sa maldita mode) Sana nga ganon na lang eh... joke!
BOY: (nagulat sa pagtatransform pero naka recover ulit....sabay yakap ulit) Yan ang mamimiss ko sau!
GIRL: Sabi mo lang yan... mas mabuti na lang siguro na hindi na lang sana tayo nagkita ngaun... (crayola ang lola mo!)
BOY: hay... (sabay embrace ulit kay girl at ang mga UTAW...napapatingin! akala cguro shooting o eksena sa totoong buhay na MAGBF at MAGGF na NAGBIBREAK ang hindi nila alam...HINDI RIN ALAM NANG 2 KUNG ANO NGA BA SILA? AT BAKIT GANON KADRAMA ANG TAGPO)
goodbye_hug.jpg

background music...
....Over and over again
I try to tell myself that
We could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel...

ALARM PALA NANG AKING CELLPHONE ITO AT ORAS NA PARA AKO AY MAGISING AT PAPASOK NA AKO...pero u know what? Parang totoo ang nangyari... naiyak ako sa panaginip ko!

Hay... so sad... :(

NOBODY KNOWS IT BUT ME by BABYface (hmmm...)

bagay na kanta kay Andrea

rain

habang nagpapalipas nang oras... nakikinig ako sa aking cellphone... i heard this song... as in swak na swak... NOBODY KNOWS IT but Andrea and Carl kung ano ang napifeel nila...

here it goes...

notes.jpg

I pretended I'm glad you went away
These four walls closin' more every day
And I'm dying inside
And nobody knows it but me

Like a clown I put on a show
The pain is real even if nobody knows
Now I'm cryin' inside
And nobody knows it but me

Why didn't I say
The things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is just a-tumblin' down
I can see it so clearly
But you're nowhere around

The nights are lonely
The days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about
The love that we had
And I'm missin' you
And nobody knows it but me

I carry a smile when I'm broken in two
Now I'm nobody without someone like you
I'm tremblin' inside, and nobody knows it but me
I lie awake, its a quarter past three
I'm screamin' at night
As if I thought you'd hear me
Yeah my heart is callin' you
And nobody knows it but me

How blue can I get
You could ask my heart
But like a jigsaw puzzle its been torn all apart
A million words couldn't say just how I feel
A million years from now you know I'll be lovin' you still

The nights are lonely
The days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about
The love that we had
And I'm missin' you
And nobody knows it but me

Tomorrow mornin' I'm hittin' the dusty road
Gonna find you wherever, ever you might go
I'm gonna unload my heart
And hope you come back to me
Said when the nights are lonely...
