Dark Sides and Rants, Something Else

Dark Days

I’m in that point again where everything is hopeless and useless. Some said it’s postpartum depression, I think it’s just “regular” depression. I had these moods and thoughts since grade school. Anyways, posts will be PW protected to avoid bigger issues in the future.

Guilt

The other day you said you can’t sleep because you feel guilty. I thought you’re guilty because you’re hurting me, but I was wrong. You’re guilty because of what you did to her. I don’t really understand that part but I think what you mean to say was you’re guilty because you involved her in whatever plan you have. My…

Dark Sides and Rants, Letters For You, Tagalog ba?

For F,

Dahil G na G ka naman kapag pinag-uusapan ka, pa-isa lang. Pare-pareho naman kayong ganyan, deny deny sa una tapos totoo naman pala. Kung meron nga, may magagawa ba kami? Hindi ko ma-gets yung mga babaeng ganyan. Makikipag-jerjeran tapos kapag may nabuo ide-deny. Seriously, hindi nyo ba inisip bago kayo magpagalaw na baka may mabuo sa gagawin nyo? Oo hindi…

Not So Supportive and Why

Alam ko hindi lahat ng tao ay biniyayaan ng supportive na katuwang sa buhay. Actually, bihira na nga makahanap ng supportive na asawa.

Last Na

Nakita ko nanaman silang magkakasama, at ako naiwan nanamang nag-iisa. Sila, nandun sa tabing dagat, masayang namamasyal, nagtatampisaw at nagpapahinga. Ako naman, ito patingin-tingin na lang sa mga post nila. Lagi naman nila akong niyayaya pero ako ang tumatanggi. Bakit nga ba? Naalala ko tuloy nung huli kaming nagkasamasama. Maaga kaming nagkita sa isang parke at kumain pa kami ng…

Balisong

Ilang taon na nga ba? Halos labingwalong taon na din pala mula nang una kong mapansin yung weirdo mong mukha. Sa fourth row ako nakaupo noon, sa tabi ng pader. Ikaw naman nasa second or thrid row sa kabilang side ng kwarto. Pareho tayong transferee na first year high school students noon. Ang puti at ang gwapo mo, matangkad ka…
