Literary (Submission): Kailan Pa*

"Kung ‘di ngayon kailan pa, bukas o makalawa..."

Disyembre.

Napakabagal mo talaga kahit kelan.

Huling Powerdance na. Huling UPIS Week. Huling Christmas Party. Huling Lantern Parade kasama ang batch. Kasama siya.

Siguro ito na ang panahon para malaman ng best friend ko na mula pa noong una mong Powerdance, unang UPIS Week, unang Christmas Party at Lantern Parade, siya na ang gusto mo.

Sinamahan na nga kitang bumili ng regalo para sa kanya. Yung boxed set ng paborito niyang series. Yung paisa-isa niyang hinihiram sa library. Sabi ko bumili ka na rin ng bookmark. Yung parang clip na di mo maintindihan kung pano ginagamit. Pero alam kong magugustuhan niya yun kasi penguin ang design. Sabi ko samahan ko na rin ng tatlong malaking bar ng paborito niyang Cadbury. Para kakainin niya habang nagbabasa.

Tinulungan pa kitang isulat ang note. May pagbati ng Maligayang Pasko at kaunting pahaging na mahalaga siya sa’yo.

Binalot ko ng maganda at maghapon kong bitbit sa school habang nag-iisip ka kung paano ibibigay sa kanya. Pero higit sa hindi ka makatiyempo, alam ko kinakabahan ka sa magiging reaksyon niya. Kaya habang nakatungo siyang natutulog sa classroom na naka-assign sa batch, iniwan mo na lang ang regalo mo sa tabi ng bag niya.

"Baka makawala pa…"

Kaso sa dinami-dami ng makakalimutan mong ilagay, pangalan mo pa! Hindi naman siya psychic, ano ba? Naiinis na ko kasi sa’kin siya maya’t mayang nagtatanong kung kanino galing. Kahit nagpost siya sa Instagram ng picture ng gifts mo with matching thank you hart hart hart at sinabing magpakilala ka, hindi ka pa rin nagreact! Alangan namang sumama na nga ako sa pagbili at pagbibigay, ako pa magsasabi?

“Sorry na,” sabi mo, sabay abot sa’kin ng isang parang kahon na nakabalot sa colored paper.

“Ano ‘to?” pagtataray ko.

“Buksan mo.”

Sinira ko yung wrapper at napangiti ako nang makita ko ang laman. Yung Doodle planner na gustong-gusto kong bilhin nung nasa bookstore tayo pero nagdalawang isip ako.

“Wag ka sanang magsawang tulungan ako.”

Okay. Fine.

Naiparating mo na ba? Naihayag mo na ba?

Pebrero

Kaliwa’t kanan na ang nagpopromposal kaya hinihintay ko na yung plano mo para sa kanya. Kahit naman di mo ako tanungin, siyempre bilang best friend niya, tutulungan kita. Kasi ikaw talaga ang boto ko. Mula pa nung malaman ko na matagal mo na siyang gusto.

Pinariringgan na kita ng mga sinasabi niyang gusto niya. Ang saya raw siguro na nakasulat sa pepperoni pizza yung tanong. Tapos flowers. Nagagandahan siya sa pink roses. Kahit anim lang, pwede na. Tsaka harana. Kahit ako pa ang tumugtog para sa’yo, basta makausad-usad ka lang.

Kaso anong petsa na, wala pa rin! Isang linggo na lang prom na, hindi ka pa rin nakakadecide. Nakaalis na kaming cadets papuntang bundok, nakabalik na kami galing ng Annual Camp, wala. Nganga ka pa rin. Hay. Parang hindi mo rin pinapansin lahat ng reminder ko. Tatango ka lang tapos change topic na.

"Nakapagtapat ka na ba? Ano ba!"

Hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit nag-aalangan ka. Last year, gets ko kung bakit di ka man lang nag-attempt. Hindi ka kasi sure kung naka-move on na ba talaga siya dun sa loko niyang “ka-MU.” Baka nga naman rebound lang ang datingan mo.

Pero ngayon? Ano pa ang pumipigil sa’yo? Ayan na ang chance! Palalampasin mo na naman ba? Ugh!!!

“Wag na ganyang promposal. Hassle eh,” sabi mo. Hassle? HASSLE??? Ano ba naman ‘yung konting effort? Pero… okay… breathe.

“O sige. Paano na?”

“Eto.” Inabot mo sa’kin ang isang nakatuping papel. Tula. Maikli lang. Simple. Pero nakakakilig. Promposal level.

“Ang ganda!!! Iaabot ko! Tapos pag nabasa nya, magpakita kang may dalang flowers!!!” sabi ko.

Nagkibit ka ng balikat. “Wag na.”

“Huh? Bakit?”

“Basta! Wag na.” Medyo malungkot ang boses mo. Bakit parang nawawalan ka ng pag-asa?

“Eh di ipapasa ko na lang sa MC. Sasabihin ko sa EIC namin ipublish sa Aninag. Lagi siyang nagbabasa dun. Pag natuwa siya, pakilala ka! Sabihin mo para sa kanya.”

Umiling ka ulit. “Wag nga.”

“Bakit??? Grabe kaya! Kung para sa’kin ‘to, oo talaga ang sagot ko.”

Ngumiti ka lang ng matipid. Okay. Hay. Ewan ko sa’yo. Bakit ba napakatorpe mo?

----

"Di niya malalaman, di mahuhulaan damdamin mo…"

Marso.

Ang slow mo.

Last week na ng klase. Last day na ng pagbebenta ng dry goods. Last day na para magtalumpati. Last draft na sana ng thesis. Nabibilang ko na ang mga araw bago ang limang buwang bakasyon.

Kaya siguro, ito na rin ang last chance ko para linawin sa’yo ang nararamdaman ko mula pa nung first group activity nung first quarter. Nung first class production. Nung first sem.

Binigyan na kita ng regalo. Yung planner na limang beses mo yatang hinawakan at binitawan, pinag-isipan kung bibilhin o hindi. Hanggang sa tuluyan mo nang iniwan at sinabing, “Next time na lang.” Binalikan ko rin nung araw na ‘yun. Sulit na sulit ako sa gulat at sayang nakita ko sa mukha mo.

Ilang beses na rin akong nagpasubmit sa’yo ng tula. Minsan kahit hindi pang-submit, binibigay ko lang sa’yo. Lahat na yata ng hugot ko, nailagay ko diyan. Lahat ng klaseng pagpaparinig at pagpapahaging na naiisip ko, sinama ko na.

Lahat na yata ng excuse para makasama ka palagi nagamit ko na. Magpaturo sa Physics. Magpatago ng gamit. Magpaprint. Magpasama bumili ng regalo para sa ibang tao. Kahit minsan naririndi na ko sa mga reminders mo, kahit naiinis na ko sa ipinagpipilitan mo, ayos lang. Kahit maya’t maya mo na kong pinagagalitan at iniirapan, tinitiis ko, basta kasama kita o kausap.

Pero hindi ka pa rin maka-gets.

"Kung di sasabihin…"

Abril.

Graduation practice.

Sabay tayong pumapasok. Hindi kita iniiwanan. Nililibre kita ng pancit canton sa Vinzon’s bago kita ihatid sa bahay niyo. Ka-text kita habang naglalakad ako pauwi. Magkachat tayo hanggang gabi.

Pero siya pa rin ang gusto mong pinag-uusapan. Tungkol sa kanya pa rin ang mga tanong mo sa akin.

“Nakapag-usap ba kayo?”
“May ibibigay ka ba sa kanya sa graduation?”
“Alam na ba niya? Sasabihin mo na ba?”

Give short answers. Change topic.

Pinapaulit-ulit mo sa akin na mahalaga sa’yo yung pagkakaibigan natin. Na ayaw mong magbago yung samahan natin. Ako rin naman. Pero… minsan iniisip ko, patay malisya ka na lang rin siguro.

Graduation.

Pumalakpak ako ng malakas nung tinawag ang pangalan mo. Proud na proud ako sa’yo nang sabitan ka ng medal, nang banggitin lahat ng nakuha mong awards.

Niyakap kita ng mahigpit pagkatapos ng programa. Nag-congratulate at nagpasalamat para sa lahat lahat. Bago ka tawagin ng magulang mo, inisip ko nang sabihin sa’yo pero…

“Nabati mo na ba siya? Anong sinabi mo sa kanya?”

Nawala na naman ang lakas ng loob ko. Nagdalawang isip na naman ako.

"Kaya nga’t sabihin mo na…"

Graduation Ball.

Last song.

Ikaw ang niyaya ko.

Pumayag ka pero natatawa mong tinanong, “Bakit ako ang last dance mo?” tanong mo.

“Tinatanong mo ba talaga yan?” sagot ko.

“Hahaha. Hindi ba dapat siya? Ang torpe mo talaga.”

Oo, torpe ako.

Dahil hindi ko alam kung paano sasabihin sa’yo na ikaw talaga ang gusto ko.

*Inspired by MYMP's Torpe Song

Literary (Submission): Twelve Hours

3/25/2015 09:01:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments


6:40AM

I tried my best to go to school as early as possible (which I do not usually do), hoping that I would get a chance to walk you to your first period class. You’re usually at school by 6:45, but this time you arrived earlier.

As I entered the gate, I caught a glimpse of your pretty face. You’re standing near the stairs and looked like you were waiting for someone. My heart skipped a beat. I smiled without reason and walked as fast as I could. I told myself, “This could be the chance I’m waiting for.”

But he got there before me. He approached you and offered to help you with your things. You gave him a bright smile, nodded, and handed him your backpack. You turned and walked away, talking and laughing.

I know he’s your best friend, nothing to worry about. But even if you don’t seem to know, I know, and everyone knows that he likes you more than that.

10:30AM

My friends and I rushed to our Social Studies class on the 3rd floor. I know your next class is on the same floor, so I walked slowly. I deliberately wanted to be left behind so I can sneak a glace as I pass by your classroom.

You were seated beside him on the last row near the windows. You were attentively listening to the Algebra lesson. I didn’t expect you to look my way.

But maybe fate still has something for me. You looked towards the door and our eyes met. You smiled and gave a little wave. The butterflies in my stomach went wild. My world stood still. Those sparkling eyes, that gorgeous smile... this must be a dream.

I waved back. Maybe you didn’t see me wave anymore for you turned around and faced him. You talked to each other like best friends usually do. I looked away and ran towards my classmates. Nothing to worry about. I know that you’re just friends.

12:00NN

It was time for lunch. I went to the canteen. We took our seats and started to eat and chat. I didn’t expect to see you, but there you are. You were with your friends and he was there with you.

As you walked past us, I heard you say that you’re starving. I thought of giving you my extra snack but when I reached for my bag under the table, I heard him say, “Get what you want, my treat.”

I heard you thank him and saw you give him a quick hug. Your friends started teasing you. You blushed and moved away from him. I turned away, tried to ignore things, and gave my attention to my lunch and my friends.

4:30PM

The last class has finally ended. Table Tennis training doesn’t start for another hour. I walked down the ramp to meet my team mates and unexpectedly saw you there. You were with him again. This time, you were both surrounded by his basketball teammates.

I’m hearing big voices. They were loudly laughing and teasing the two of you. I tried to ignore you but maybe it can’t be helped. I still snuck a glance at you.

Your face was really red and you were laughing hard. You look really happy. And really cute. You stood up, bid him good luck for his training, and left.

6:00PM

I was leaving after training when I saw you seated on the wooden benches near the stairs. You were alone, just playing with your iPhone. Maybe fate was really tempting me. Could this be the chance that I was waiting for? Or could this be just another thing to open my eyes to reality?

So I decided to grab this opportunity. I walked towards you, tapped your shoulder and smiled at you. Your eyes lit up, you smiled back, and stood up. You gave me a quick hug and asked me to sit beside you.

Everything was awkward and quiet. All I can hear was the wind and the crickets chirping. I tried to think of a way to start a conversation but I was terribly tongue tied. I don’t know what to say. Maybe this is the time to tell you how much I like you.

I was about to start talking when your phone rang. It was your dad. He probably told you to hurry up for after that phone call, you stood up, picked up your stuff, and mumbled an apology and a quick goodbye.

6:10PM
I walked home alone. I remembered how today started and ended. Realizations hit me hard. This is too much for one day.

A part of me tells me to stop what I’m doing, another tells me to continue. I really love you, but this day made me realize, “Is my love for you enough for you to love me too?” What if we aren’t really made for each other? Will I still have other chances or would they slip away like what happened? I’m too tired to think.


Maybe tomorrow has something in store for me. Or the day after tomorrow, who knows when? I’ll do everything that I can to win your heart. This is not the end, it’s just the beginning. I love you, and that’s what I hold on to.

Never fall in love when it’s 2am.

Never fall in love with the 2am thoughts he tweets when it’s half past 12 in the evening.

Never share the things he shares on Facebook when the morning has barely begun.

Never like the pages he likes at 3:45 in the afternoon just because you think he’ll like you back if you do.

Never reblog the photo set he uploads when he’s killing time on Tumblr, as if those photos would ever be of you.

Never listen to the bands he listens to on Spotify when it’s time to study, for you will hear the lyrics flow and think of him.

Never add views to the links from Youtube he sends to you at 6:25 at night, when you are supposed to be watching tutorials instead.

Never “heart” his photos Instagram when he posts at 8 at night, as if he would ever heart yours

Never wait for the ping from Viber when he said he was going to eat dinner an hour before and it’s already 10 in the evening.

Never vote for his favorite artist on MTV before the clock strikes twelve, as if he would ever choose you.


Never ever fall in love when it’s 2am because this cycle starts over and over again and you find yourself swimming in the spare minutes he does not have.

Minsan, hindi mo alam
Nasa harap mo na pala
Pero lumingon ka pa sa iba
Kasi may biglang tumawag sa pangalan mo

Minsan, hindi mo alam
Nasa tabi mo na pala
Pero umalis ka
Kasi ihing ihi ka na

Minsan, hindi mo lang alam
Kasunod mo lang pala
Pero lumiko ka
Kasi dumaan ka pa sa kaibigan mo

Minsan, hindi mo lang alam
Dumaan na pala
Pero di mo nakita
Kasi abala ka sa pagbabasa

Minsan, hindi mo alam
Siya na pala
Pero di mo pinansin
Kasi hindi mo pa siya kilala

Minsan, hindi mo talaga alam
Pero…
Kasi…
Baka wala ka lang talagang pakialam

Literary: Second Chances

3/25/2015 08:40:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments


I remember how fast you were going
As I was waiting by the corner,
Waiting for you on a rainy afternoon,
With only your footsteps to be heard.

I remember how you were standing still
Getting drenched as the rain poured down
You were waiting for someone,
Was it me?

I counted your steps, one by one,
The pitter patter of rain sounding like the ticking of my watch
I watched as the pitter patter turned to large drops, the way ticks became tocks
And finally you were there

I walked slowly towards that corner where you were
Ignoring the large raindrops falling on my back.
All that matters is now, I’ve got a chance
To make up for the time I wasted in the past

Twenty minutes a bit too late,
I was ready to walk away in the rain
But as I was closing my umbrella
You put yours above my head.

Just in time, I reached you with my umbrella
You stopped, turned, and our eyes met.
We stared at each other for almost an eternity
With no one even bothering to say a single word

I didn’t mind anymore that you were late
I lay my head on your shoulder and sighed,
The smell of rain and your scent enveloping me.
Words would never be enough to describe our love.

We held each other in a very warm embrace
As I felt your heart beating through my shirt I remembered
How in the world did it once cross my mind
To break this lovely woman’s precious heart?

Words running thin, eyes running dry,
Walking away, coming back, making time,
We made our own history, my dear,
One time frame was never enough for us.

We walked together, towards a future full of love
Leaving behind a past full of sorrow and regret
Our own history, indeed, is what we wrote down
Our own fairy tale, which we will never, ever forget

Perpekto
Lahat ay naaayon sa aking plano
Klaro
Walang makikihalo, mukhang magtatagal, walang halong biro

Sino ka ba?
Mga kilos mo’y kaduda-duda
Ang labo
‘Di ko lubos maisip kung anong pakay mo

Bes
‘Yan ang tawagan nating dalawa
Pero minsan ‘pag sinasaltik, tinatawag kitang “love”
‘Pag ika’y kakausapin, ang lakas mong mang-isnab!
Kaya minsa’y tinanong ang sarili, itutuloy ko pa ba?

Close pala tayo noon?
Parang ‘di naman, sa text lang ‘yon
Ayokong umasa ka
Kahit masaya ako ‘pag kausap kita

Pero aminado ako
Pawang laro-laro lamang ang lahat ng ito
Pansamantalang kasiyahan, ‘di alam kung saan patungo
Basta bahala na, susunod na lang ako sa agos

Unti-unting nahulog ang loob ko
Sa larong ito, ako ata ang talo
Mabilis man ang takbo ng oras
Umaasa akong ito’y wala nang wakas.

Alas singko ng umaga,
Ikaw ang gustong makausap
Agad kong bubuksan ang telepono
At makikita ang “Good morning” text mo

Alas sais ng umaga, papasok sa eskwela
Magpupustahan kung sinong mauuna
Gugulatin pa kung sinong mahuli
At sabay pang kakain pamuli

Alas dose ng tanghali,
Magkikita sa kantina
Ililibre mo pa ko ng tanghalian
Kasama pa natin ang buong barkadahan

Sa loob ng anim na buwan,
Araw-araw tayong ganiyan
Martes hanggang Biyernes,
Minsan kasama pa ang Sabado at Lunes.

Pero anong nangyari?
Hanggang anim na buwan lang ba
Ang saya at kilig natin?
Bakit tila nabaliktad ang lahat ng dati?

Alas singko ng umaga,
Ikaw ang gustong makausap,
Agad kong bubuksan ang telepono,
At magpapadala ng “Good morning” text sa’yo

Alas sais ng umaga, papasok sa eskwela
Ako na ang laging nauuna
Sa ramp, hinihintay kita
Habang mag-isang kakain ng almusal

Alas dose ng tanghali,
Hihintayin ka sa kantina
Nakahanda na ang tanghalian mo
Pero nakakain ka na pala

Literary: The Clock Tower

3/25/2015 07:53:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments


Once again I find myself at the solitary clock tower on the cliff overlooking the seashore, the stars and the full moon being my only companions this night. Outside, I see that the Aurora is beginning, sending dancing flashes of color across the lonely landscape. While staring at this majestic display, I feel at peace listening to the celestial music only the night sky’s silence can provide.

Looking back, I see the tower just as it announces midnight, with tolling bells sending a mournful wail that echoes through the trees. For once, I am satisfied in being alone, I realize that it is the only thing that gives me freedom. True freedom, free from the binding shackles of society, its uncouth hustle and bustle. Once again I return my sight to the masquerade unfolding above as through each flash of light, the constellations come to life, I see Orion’s hunt still continuing, the Gemini and the Virgo dancing upon a meadows of starlight. But as the northern lights fade, so does my vision slowly disappear. The tower announces the first hour of the morning, I look at it, and decide that the moon shall be the only clock I shall even need.

Literary (Submission): Time and You

3/25/2015 07:49:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments


Time is the future, the present, the past
Time is an opportunity, a moment, an occasion
Time can be slow, can be fast
Time can hurt, can heal

But is this what time really is?
Is this all that time can be?
No, I think what time really is
Stays a mystery

Time is something you can’t touch but is of value
Something you’d be lucky to have
Just like love
Just like you

Just like time, just like love
I am lucky to have you
But we both know that just like love,
Time is not perfect

The best time is when you are in my embrace
When you can hear my heart race
The worst time is being miles and miles away
With no contact at any time of the day

If I could, I would be with you all the time
Because time wasted with you is no longer wasted time
Letting time pass with your hand on my chest
To lay down with you all in a day’s rest

So we need to see the importance of time
We must be careful to spend its every bit
Because time is not forever in our hands
Just like love can suddenly be banned

Time is not perfect.
We will soon run out of it, too
But my heart will never run out of love for you.

I am in love with the way he holds the pen. He clasps it as if it were his life as the numbers, the signs, continually flow from the ink of his pen. His forehead scrunches as he crosses out of his errors and starts over again. In frustration, he picks up his calculator and it almost falls by an inch. He looks sheepishly behind him to see if anyone noticed. He almost saw me.

-----

I am in love with the way she holds her pen. She cradles it inside her palm so carelessly as if this exam was just an exercise. She finishes ten minutes before anybody else does and I can’t help but be pressured but also be entranced by how quick she was. She sleeps for a few minutes and then suddenly raises her head. She almost saw me.

-----

The test has finished, and as I try to ease my way out of the room through the tiny door, I find myself beside him. I try to look up without being obvious, but he catches me anyway. A forced smile makes it onto his face and I return a smile of my own. As soon as I get out of the room, I rush to the rest room and sigh. I look at the mirror and I wonder. I wonder why he left.

-----

The test has finished, and as I try to get out before anyone else does, I just so happen to be beside her. My heart beats fast as I try to avoid her gaze before she notices me, but it is too late. I force a smile onto my face despite all the hurt I am feeling inside. I dash out of the room and soon I am joined by my friends. I smile and laugh with them but my mind is elsewhere. It starts to wander towards the memory of that day, that day that I left her.

-----

He was never one to leave without having the last word. And so on that fateful day he took me on a walk and he explained. He explained and he explained, but the further he tried to clear things, the more confusing it got. He was the same person I knew, but his words were not ones I recognized. He told me he was sorry. He didn’t want to leave, but he knew he needed to. He knew this from the start, and yet here we were after 4 months, staring at each other through the eyes of strangers. He told me that good byes were never the last, that they were only promises of a new hello. But this time I feared hello would never come and this would be the first good bye that wouldn’t last.

-----

She was never one to stay after everything has been said. And so on that treacherous day, I took her on a walk and I told her my story. All the nights I put into practicing my speech had gone down the drain and through the window as I saw her eyes reading my mind before the words even came out of my mouth. I told her so many different reasons, so many different excuses, and to this day, I still do not know understand my farewell. But on that day I saw you through the eyes of a man I did not know. And I guess that made it easier to say good bye, with no promise of hello.

-----

I am in love with the way he holds the pen, but I’d rather he let go.

-----

I am in love with the way she holds the pen, but I’d rather she hold on.

Literary: Only Me x Only You

3/17/2015 08:43:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments



I wish you didn’t know so many girls. I wish I met you before anyone else did. That mine was the first hand you ever held. And yours was the first to ever hold mine.

I was afraid you’d soon fall back in love with someone in your past. The past I barely know anything about. The past that doesn’t contain even a fragment of my being. Maybe someone from there is a lot better than I am. Maybe I am just a mistake you secretly want to erase.

The thought haunts me more than it should, keeping me restless at night. Creating scenarios I am desperately hoping not to come alive. Maybe I just don’t want to lose you.

It was hard competing with ghost lovers from the past. But you told me I need not to. Because I am your present and your future. You chose me today and will continue to choose me everyday until all the stars fall down.

And all the hands you held.
And all the hearts you took.
They mean nothing to me now.

For your heart beats for me and only me.

-----

I may have known many girls whose hands held mine before I ever held yours. And though I may have been glad when I held them, I now realize how much I have been missing out on.

I’ve fallen in love so many times in the past. You’ve probably never heard of the stories of those I loved before you. But what would it matter if none of them could ever compare to you?

And during those times I find myself thinking about what could have been, who I could’ve ended up with, I only need to look beside me and remind myself of what a wonderful person I have in my life.

You need not worry. I crush “what if?” questions that cross my mind. I know you have doubts. But I’m telling you not to. For I may not have loved you yesterday, but I love you today, and I will love you for all of my tomorrows.

And all the hands I once held.
And all the hearts I may have broken.
They should not matter at all to you.

For my heart beats for you and only you.

Literary: Baka Sakali x Wala Na

3/17/2015 08:34:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments



Baka Sakali
Bubbles

Mahal kita, mahal na mahal
‘Tila ba ayaw ko nang bumitaw pa
Ang kasunduan nati’y maaari bang mabalewala na
At ika’y makasama hanggang sa dulo pa

Nalalaman mo ba?
Hahanap-hanapin ko ang iyong yakap at akbay
Ayokong matapos ang segundo, minuto at araw
Pagkat sa dulo tayo’y mag-hihiwalay

Hanggang dito na lang ba?
Sigurado ka na?
Kahit sa puso mong nanlalamg na
Ako’y patuloy na kakapit pa


Wala Na
Jollibee

Mahal kita, mahal mo ako
Mamahalin ang isa’t isa
Hangga’t nagkakasama tayo
Ito ang kasunduang matatapos na sa dulo

Nalalaman ko,
Nasanay ka na sa mga akbay at yakap ko
Wag mag-alala, araw, minuto at segundo
Ang hinihintay bago tayong dalawa’y tuluyang maghiwalay

Ako at ikaw, ‘di dapat magdamdam
Minahal kita, minahal mo ‘ko
Pero aminin nating tayo’y nagkasundo
Kung tayo, ay tayo muling magkikita sa dulo

Literary: Only Hope

3/17/2015 08:30:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments



I looked for you
You who are the answer to my dreams
Who will complete me
The one to finally love me

I found you
You who are perfect for me
Who I cared for deeply
The one I let get away

I learned from you
You who gave yourself willingly

Who I hurt badly
The one I so miss

I've wanted to say to you
That I'm your dream girl
That this is real love
But it's not me for you

I'm not the one for you
I can't give you my all
My unconditional love
The one I'm not sure how to give

But I want to be better for you
I want to be that person you see in me
I want to be deserving of you
I only hope it wouldn't be too late


You looked for me
I, who was hollow and empty
Blind and unseeing
You're the one who has given me light

You found me
You, the one who betrayed me
Gave me a wound
At the end of the day

I trusted you
I gave you my world

But nevertheless
You sundered it all

I thought you were true
A dream come to life
I never once thought
You'd turn me away

You're not the one for me
You gave me despair
I thought that I loved you
But now I'm confused

Should I give you another chance--
A chance for redemption?
Or just play it safe?
I only hope it wouldn't hurt again

Literary: Damdamin x Isip

3/17/2015 08:23:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments



Damdamin
Wonderful

Alam mo ba
Na kapag nakikita kita
Abot langit ang saya
Pag-ibig na ba ito o paghanga?

Nauutal man ay aaminin na
Ang mga salitang puno ng damdamin
Kung ito ay pambobola lamang
Bakit pa maglalakas-loob na ito’y sabihin?

Maganda ka at matalino
Kaya sino ba naman ako para sa’yo?
Marahil hindi ka sa’kin naniniwala
‘Di naman ako katulad ng iba.

Bakit pa ko hihinto,
Kung nasimulan na ito?
Sa lahat ng tao sa mundo
Ikaw at ako ang pinagtagpo.

Alam kong hindi madaling magtiwala
Dahil ‘di mo ako lubusang kilala
Kung sa tingin mo ito’y pansamantala
Nagkakamali ka pagkat ipaglalaban kita.

Ngunit minsan ‘di kita maintindihan
Parag wala ka namang pakialam sa aking ginawa
‘Di mo baa lam na ako’y nasasaktan,
Sa tuwing ako’y iyong binabalewala.

Maraming araw ang lumipas
Ngunit bawat araw na kasama ka’y parang walang wakas
Lagi kong pilit na ipinapakita
Na ikaw at ikaw lang talaga.

Sa simula pa lang ay walang pag-aalinlangan
Walang pinagsisiihan, buo ang kalooban
Gustong-gusto kita, sinta
Kaya ako ay mahalin mo rin, sinta.


Isip
Abril Mayo

Sa totoo lang
Hindi ko alam kung anong dapat sabihin
Sapagkat ang mga salita ay salita lang
Kung tahasang babanggitin.

Ngunit dahil ito na lang ang paraan
Ay sasabihin na rin
Ang lahat ng nararamdaman
At lahat ng gustong sabihin.

Totoo nga, ako ay nagduda,
Hindi ko maalis ang kaba
Na baka wala kang ipinagkaiba
At kagaya rin ng iba

Pero hindi ka huminto
Patuloy kang nanunuyo
Parang walang kapagod-pagod
Hindi ka sumusuko.

Hindi naman ako agad na nagpadala,
Inasahan kong baka bukas makalawa
Ay bigla ka na lang magsawa
O kaya’y mawalan ng pag-asa.

Hindi dahil iyon ang tingin ko sa’yo
Ngunit iyon lang ang pamamaraan ko
Upang itago ang munting nararamdaman
At kung mawala ka’y hindi ako lubusang masaktan.

Maraming araw na ang lumipas
Ngunit ni isang araw ay wala kang pinalampas
Iyong pinatunayan kung sino ka talaga
Pinatunayan mo rin ang aking halaga.

Kaya naman kung noong una ako ay nag-aalangan
Ngayon ay buo na ang kalooban
Ikaw nga ay gustona rin
At ako ay handa ka nang mahalin.

Literary: I'm Sorry x It's Okay

3/17/2015 08:19:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments



It's Okay
20 Seconds

When my mind turns
And the clock ticks
I wonder why you tricked me
And let me go

As I take a deep breath
I remember when we talked one night
That 5th of November
When everything between us was still okay

I never forget all those gentle gestures
Words we barely spoke to each other
I painted a future for us, so bright
Yet I guess those hints were not enough

You made your choice in the end
The sensation from your phrases is gone
The taste is no longer sweet
The smile from the past night has faded

You don’t need to keep me in your heart
At the back of your mind is just fine
The love we saw was something else
The mask was empty from the inside

You did not need to give me everything
I could give it all back, you just need to say
I accept your apology; it’s okay
I told you everything you need to know

I have forgiven you for leading me astray

ERRATUM: The Media Center apologizes for the previous version of this article referred to Denz Aleta as Benz Aleta and also included a winner of the FA Vice President (VP) post. The candidate for FA VP did not receive a confidence vote thus the position is vacant. This article has been updated with corrections.

Para saan pa ang pinto,
Kung teachers lang naman ang nakakaraan?
Para saan pa ang hagdanan,
Kung di naman maakyatan?

Naglagay ng apat na gate,
Isa lang naman ang nagagamit
Naglagay ng ref sa foods lab,
Bawal naman maglagay ng pagkain

May gym nga tayo, wala namang bubong
Mga bench tinanggal, bawal daw umupo
May Braille sa pader, baka nga naman mabasa ng bulag
May kuryente naman! Nakikisabit nga lang.

Mga pader kasintibay ng styro ng Jollibee
Mga crack nagsusulputan sa gilid-gilid
Ilang buwan pa lang dosenang ilaw na'y napundi
Tiles sa homeroom bigla na lang umuusli.

Isang araw, malaking pirasong yero'y nalaglag
Bumabagyo ba noon? Maaraw pa nga
Buti naman walang estudyanteng napisa
Tatlong halaman lang ang namatay, kaawa-awa.

Balak mo nang lumabas ng gate?
Naku bata, once you're out it's too late.
Buti pa sa cinema, nagpapasok ulit,
Sa 'IS manigas ka, bawal magpumilit.

Ang 'IS parang isang minamahal na kaibigan
Ngunit minsan, talagang kinaiiritahan
Isang tanong ang ngayo'y umiikot sa aking isipan
UPIS, trip mo lang ba kaming parusahan?

Araw-araw, sa pagpasok sa paaralan
Ang makita ka ang lagi kong inaabangan
Mapa-ECON, MATH o SCIENCE
Ikaw ang gusto kong puntahan

Nasa’yo ang tangi kong hinahanap
Alam kong ikaw lang ang makakapagbigay ng dapat
Ikaw ang sasalba sa puso kong kumakaba
Sa tuwing ang exam ay magsisimula na

Hindi ko alam ang ibang dulot ng pag-abot mo
Sa tuwing may exam ay lumalakas ang loob ko
Salamat dahil kahit ni minsan
Hindi mo ako pinagdamutan

Iba ang kabutihang iyong taglay
Muntik na ngang ako sa’yo’y mapa-ibig na tunay
Sana nga ay wag kang magbago
Marami ka kasing napapasayang tao

Ngunit, ako ay may lihim
Isang lihim na ngayon ay sasabihin
Sa bahay, ang scical ay sadyang iniiwan
Upang ikaw o, Sir Manny ay aking masilayan

Bakit ba kasi napakasakit?
‘Yung iwan ka ba naman sa ere?!
Ano bang problema ng mga lalaki?
Ang hilig manakit ng mga babae

Wrong send? Sino to?
Isa ka ba sa mga humiram ng bolpen ko?
Binura ko na kasi number niyo
Ayan, buti nga sayo!

Aba, ako pa ngayon?!
Ako pa ang nasisi?
Nagmahal lang naman ako
Nagmahal sa mga tulad niyo

Tulad ko? Aba loko
Ako kaya yung pinapaasa!
Tulad ng mga bolpen ko,
Ako’y sira na at nawawala

Ikaw? Pinaasa?
Ay, teka lang ah
Kung sira ka na talaga
Aba’y, sirang, sirang, sira na ako

Oo. Pinaasa
Sirang sira? Talaga lang ah
Ano pa bang mas malala pa
Sa pagkasira ng sayo’y pinakamahalaga


Oo, sirang-sira
Wala na kasing mas malala pa
Sa pagmukhain kang tanga
At iwan kang mag-isa

Teka nga, teka nga
Ba’t bas akin ka nagdadrama?
Di naman ako yung nagpaasa ah
Di nga ata kita kilala

Ay loko!
Hindi ba ikaw si…
Pagpasensiyahan mo na
Salamat na rin at nakisakay ka

Wew. Tinanong ko ng a kanina kung wrong send ka
O siya, di bale na
Mukhang biktima ka rin pala
Ng mga bolpen at pusong sinisira ng tadhana

Biktima nga yata ako
At alam kong biktima rin

Ng tadhana o kay saklap
Ooh beybe o kay saklap

Isang tipikal na araw iyon sa UPIS. Nag-cut ako ng Bio class para kumain. Pinlano ko ang aking usual orders: isang order ng chicken curry, dalawang Yakult at isang ice candy bilang panghimagas. Nang makita kita, napatigil ako sa pagsasalita, pero sadyang malakas talaga ang tadhana at ako’y napa-“Hi!”

Inangat mo ang iyong palad, naghuhudyat na paglapitin natin ang ating mga kamay. Napatitig ako sa iyong malamlam na mata, nagpapahiwatig na hindi maganda ang takbo ng iyong araw. At maaaring paglapat ng ating mga kamay ang muling magpakislap ng iyong mga mata at diwa.

Nakalimutan ko nang umorder dahil dinaldal mo na naman ako nang husto. Sinimulan mo sa bakit ako nasa canteen, kamusta na ang tatay ko at ang walang kamatayang pangangamusta mo sa akin at sa ex ko. Hindi mo baa lam na rinding-rindi na ako sa topic na ‘yun, pero kunwaring ayos lang dahil alam kong malapit mo na kaming iwan.

Kahit minsan napagkakamalang kang nakawala pa sa zoo dahil malaki ang pagkakahawig mo sa isang black and white panda, ayos lang dahil muntikan mo nang mapatunayang may forever, na may handang magtagal at may handang tumanda para sa amin. Pinatunayan ng iyong mabagal na lakad ay lahat ng iyong napagdaanan, mula sa sakit sa ulong idinulot ng mga magulang naming naging estudyante mo, hanggang sa amin na nagdulot ng matinding sakit mo sa puso.

At bilang pagtatapos ng ating pag-uusap, muli mo akong kinamayan at napaisip akong ilang ganito pa ba ang aking maaabutan?

Hindi si Nash Aguas, hindi rin si Enrique Gil, malayo kay James Reid, lalong-lalo na kay Daniel Padilla. Hindi siya kaano-ano ni Lorna Tolentino, siya lang naman ang nag-iisang Jama Tolentino.

Si Jan Matthew Tolentino, mas kilala bilang Jama, ay isang isang lateral student mula sa De La Salle Araneta. Siya ay nakatira ngayon sa Malabon kasama ang kaniyang mga magulang. Mahilig siyang sumayaw, mag-basketball, kumanta, umarte, at magpacute sa mga chickas.

At bilang patikim kung gaano na siya kasikat, kami ay nagsagawa ng interview/ get together ng kaniyang mga loyalista o mas kilala bilang JAMAnatics.


At dahil ayaw nilang ipaalam ang kanilang mga tunay na identity, itinago namin sila sa iba’t ibang code name.


Q1: May crush/ naggwapuhan ka ba kay Jama?

Sa pitong ininterbyu namin, dalawa lang sa kanila (Pink at Stargazer) ang aminadong deboto ni Jama. Noong magka-typhoid fever siya, todo sa pag-aalala ang dalawa. Tinanong nila kung ano ba talaga ang nangyari sa kaniya at kung kailan siya makakapasok ulit. Kulang na lang ay mag-alay sila ng special offering sa misa, magtirik ng kandila, mag-alay ng bulaklak sa paanan ng santo, magdasal ng rosaryo, o lumalakd ng paluhod papasok ng Quiapo para lang gumaling si Jama.

Lima naman sa kanila ang umaming nagagwapuhan lang dahil, wala, gwapo at napanindigan lang niya talaga ito.

Q2: BAKIT?

Kahit sa Facebook chat ay dama namin ang feels ni Pink. “ Cute, pogi, charming, mabait, cheerful!!!! Basta ang gwapo niya po with his braces.”

Karamihan sa mga na-interview ay natameme sa lakas ng appeal ni Jama. Isama na rin dito ang pagiging presentable, hygienic at gentleman niyang tignan.

Pero ang pinakanagulantang kaming sagot ay ang sinabi ni Bubbles with matching shy-type-pero-alam-mong-gusto na boses at may kaunting pamumula ng pisngi, “Nagto-topless po siya tuwing core workout namin.”

Q3: Kailan pa kayo nagka-crush/nagwapuhan sa kanya?

One word: CAMPOREE.

Kung saan siya ang pinakapatok sa mga scouts. Tipong lalapit sila sa cadets at makikisuyo ng “Ate, busy po ba si Kuya Jama? PLS... PLS… ATE GUSTO KO PO SIYANG MAKASAYAW.” Kumbaga sa isang night club, siya ang gustong maka-table ng lahat. Ang iba’y tinandaan pa kung anong kanta ang pinapatugtog noon habang isinasayaw sila ni Jama, at kasabay nito ang pagkahumaling nila rito maging ang kaunting “throwback” noong socials. Ano ba kasi yung meron siya, bakit siya lang yung gustong isayaw? Yan tuloy, laspag na laspag si Jama hanggang matapos ang socials.

Q4: Anong meron kay Jama na wala sa iba?

Dito sa portion na ito mababasa ang “little things” na napansin nila kay Jama.

“HIS VOICE, HIS CHARMING FACE, YUNG SHAPE NG KILAY NIYA SOBRANG GANDA, MUKHANG LAGING MABANGO AT TALENTED.”

Ngunit para kay Kwek-Kwek Lover, ito ang nasabi niya, “Sa lahat po ng gwapong nakilala ko, siya lang po ‘yung maliit. Kasi gusto ko po talaga ‘yung matangkad, kaso siya po ay maliit. Pero ayos lang, gwapo pa rin.”

Hindi naman nagpahuli si Blossom at ito ang napansin niya, “Yung Roshe niya po na fuschia.”

Napansin niyo rin ba ang mga ito sa kanya?

Q5: Describe Jama in 1 word

“HOTTIE”
“PAPI”
“PHENOMENAL”
“INDESCRIBABLE”
“WILD”
“INTELLIGENT”
“MEDYO PERFECT”

Q6: Anong nararamdaman n’yo dahil gagraduate na si Jama?

Karamihan sa kanila’y nagtanong muna ng “Ate, sa UP pa rin naman po mag-aaral si Kuya Jama, di ba?”

“Oo.”

“Ay, ayos lang po pala. Dadalaw pa rin naman ‘yun dito eh. ‘Di niya kami matitiis hehehehehe”
Sabay hagikhik nila.

“Naiiyak ako ate huhu. Syempre po sa totoo lang, malulungkot ako, kami. Wala ng gwapo na pwedeng kasayaw sa socials,” ayon kay Pink.

"Sana nadagdagan din sila (Batch 2015) ng two years at sana po pala pumasok ako ng UP nang mas maaga" ayon kay Stargazer. / ulat nina Camille Lita at Nicole Rabang
