Carlo

We met at a crossroad
Where do you think we were heading?
I just don’t know
To me it didn’t matter who you are 
You know I embraced you, you see
You became a part of me that I don’t want to lose 
I may not know who or what am I to you,
But I’m sure who I wanted to be for you, because…
I will be your aid when your heart is bruised
I will be your tourniquet to stop you from bleeding
I will lose myself just to hear you breathing
I will die just to keep you alive
I will depart so long as you survive
No need to worry, Honey
For I am the best you’ll ever have
When you’re in doubt, just ask me
I may not have the answer but I can give you a piece of me
No, I’m not perfect you see
But there’s no question that I will give you the best of me
I may not know who or what am I to you,
But I am sure who I wanted to be for you because…
Someday we will become somebody and we may be on our separate ways
But for sure in my heart you will always be there
And my love for you will not be the same
It will become stronger as we become older
Because you see…
I will be your aid when your heart is bruised
I will be your tourniquet to stop you from bleeding
I will lose myself just to hear you breathing
I will die just to keep you alive
I will depart so long as you survive
No need to worry, Honey
For I am the best you’ll ever have
And yes Honey, there’s no need to worry
Because I will be the best you’ll ever have
For you are the best friend I ever had

Farewell

Right now, somewhere in this city, you’re dreaming about your dreams; while I’m wide awake, thinking about what might have been. It was almost perfect between you and me. The world seemed to revolve around us, while we were chasing down adventures enticing our path. It was a crazy journey; an adventure of a lifetime that others would love to have, that never came across their road. Everything seemed perfect — but they are not.
No, it was not summer lovin’. The feeling still lingers though it’s been more than a couple of years since the last time we’ve seen each other. I wish I wouldn’t have let go of your hand while you were still holding mine. I wish I could have stared at your face for as long as I possibly can. I could have embraced you up to the last second during our last night alone. I wouldn’t have let go of you, if I just knew that I couldn’t stand not having you by my side, knowing that you’re just around somewhere far from me, here within this small city.
How I wanted to see you, to touch you, and to be with you, but my heart doesn’t have the guts to do any of those; for I have already let go of you, and that was what I’ve told you, and that was what I believed in the whole time you were away. Now that you’re around, I know that it’s all coming back, but this isn’t how it’s suppose to be.
How I wish I can tell you I waited for you, just like what I’ve promised; but that remains a wishful thinking, knowing that we’re suppose to move on and head back home, where we can be our old selves again. No longer a couple of carefree spirits running around the streets of the city, where everybody knows everybody. All what’s left is a bundle of memories that we may reminisce in times of loneliness, when we can comfort ourselves with the illusion of joy or happiness, whatever applies to our hearts.
Now, it’s better to leave things unsaid and undone. For they may just give birth to the feelings that long been buried in the past. Its ghost is indeed a beautiful memoirs shared by two people who once comforted and fell for each other. Faithful enough to its word, those are merely memories of past lovers and nothing more than that.

Revived

Forgive me if I can’t apprehend
I see you’re trying to reach me
Got to tell you this, but I’m off the hook
Can’t be here, so I will no longer be here
Won’t go down like a lead balloon
I’ll take swift strides through this isle
Don’t follow me ‘coz I have resolved

It took time to strengthen my backbone
Now steadfast and proud
No longer your shadow ‘coz I’m stepping out
Stepping up for me, myself, and I
You’re no longer required
Not clinging anymore so get out and stay out

Don’t pull me back, this is my last call
Trembling at the sound of getting on my feet
I opt to take the fall than lose myself for you
No adherence to you
Now that’s what I’m talking about
So step back and walk away
Along with your mask of mendacity
It’s crystal that I’m better
In your absence I am healthier than ever
