Love and My Love

Love, as what I believed, is always about feelings and fairytale.

Love, as what I hoped, is always unconditional and not frail.

But it is with you that I learned love in its many ways,

That love is simply not a feeling nor a fairytale come true.

Love is a decision that could withstand time, distance and place,

Culture, beliefs, priorities, dreams and difference between green and blue.

How lucky I am to have met the most lovable and wonderful person that you are,

To experience what it’s like to have complete trust and faith to a person who is from afar.

Love, my dear, has only a few letters but you alone gave them countless meanings.

You made everything seems so bright and right in my life,

Made me realize how capable I am to love this much right from the beginning.

So when someone asks me what love is, I’ll smile, look at you

and say, “love is embodied by the person who’s always at my side.”

Hello, Stranger!

Hi from the Philippines!

The country I’m living in

I’m just here to meet new people and check out this new app

Ahhh, seems like people here are looking for a hook up

Tons of people I messaged and talked to

But none of them seemed interested in what I do

Days passed and useless conversations exchanged

I thought I could just delete it and change

But for some reason I gave it another chance

To occupy my phone’s memory more than once

Until a certain name from the UK appeared

It was just a greeting to all and nothing weird

But something in me made me want to reply

I did and I got a reply!

The person seemed nice and not like the others

Which made the butterflies in me flutter

For in that moment I felt a sudden jolt of connection

As we got engrossed in our own little world of conversation

It felt as if the universe conspired to let us meet

And destiny interfered to let our hearts beat

It was in a rhythm that we’re both unfamiliar with

Until the time came that our inhibitions were stripped

We began to realize one thing that could change our world right off the bat

That we’re both in love and decided not to let go of each other no matter what.
