A Poem: “Only Lonely” by yours truly

I want a little attention–

a simple “hey” or “hi”

to my direction.

I thirst for human affection–

a smile, a hug,

a shoulder to cry on.

Friends…

It’s okay to be vulnerable. It’s okay to be dependent. It’s okay to appear “weak.” That is our strength. I hope you have someone to tell your deepest regrets, cravings, happiness, and all other emotions in your seemingly tiny heart that might burst without ever unloading these feelings.

If you want, I can be that someone for you. Just shoot me a tweet or PM.

*hugs*

I’m afraid of being judged, so I resorted to attributing the whole damn thing to a ghost-like persona. It could be anybody or nobody. I may be nobody, but I just felt really terrible. And know I feel kind of guilty for hiding, for not showing myself. I’m still afraid that, maybe, whatever image they have of me it’ll just shatter once they see my vulnerable self. I don’t know. I’m confused. I want others to see the real me, but at the same time I don’t truly wish for that to happen.

Sabaw

Suffocating.

Feeling ko lumiliit ang ulo ko day by day. Mas nahihirapang huminga. Yung tipong pwedeng humiwalay ang kaluluwa ko any time.

Lutang. Nasobraan ng sabaw.

Ayun.

Nakalitaw. Nalunod na pala.
