“I look at the stars at my window, and sit quietly with the night.”
— Chuck Akot, from Collected Poems, “L'air est rempli de toi”
Don’t be afraid to be “too much.” Call me 5 times a day because you wanna hear my voice or something came up and you wanna tell me immediately. Text me 12 times in a row when I don’t answer fast enough. Leave me cute texts when you can’t sleep. Hold my hand. Everywhere. Sit really close to me on the couch. Keep your hand on my thigh. Always have a part of you touching a part of me. Tell me you love me every hour I don’t care I want to be smothered in love holy fuck life is too short to hold back.
“keep on spilling colors,
fill your empty canvass
let your self make your own
you are comprised of
love and dreams.
let your strokes be the guide
where your heart should belong.
may your colors speak out
someday, your rawness
will be appreciated by someone
who will see and look
to the beauty of your flaws,
because a masterpiece
is meant to be imperfect.”
You, always you Mitzi Mary Wellyn Haplasca.
An open letter for the person whom I wanna spend my whole life with,
You are the love that came without warning. You had my heart before I could say no.
I’m sorry for coming late in your life to save you from all the pain you felt and cried in this world. I’m sorry because I was too busy finding myself, not knowing that you needed me for a long time. Years had been passed away in our life; all were wasted for not knowing you from the beginning.
It’s always fasciniting how our different worlds met amidst of uncertainities. We found our souls searching for its way back home, little did we know, it’s in our hearts but we always chose to pass by with each other even if the world kept on doing its way for us to meet. We shared love that we couldn’t imagine we can do. You just came here in my life, plain and simple, yet a deep chapters of novel to read—a story worth time spending just how I settle my life to your soul.
The moment that I wrote this letter, was the moment I’ve been finally praying for, to meet my future wife and to be able to dedicate this words to her existence and beauty that really cored my heart with different colors of love. You are the best thing ever happened to me, I finally found love for the first time—I found it with you.
Tonight, unending thoughts about you are recklessly flowing. I just love the way you exist, my everything. I do not wanna even miss a single second in my life for not letting you feel how much I adore you.
I can not imagine someone else to have midnight talks with open deep chambers of heart, to have someone to cook for, to have someone to take care when she is sick, to have someone to kiss whenever the world causes too much hardships, the one who will hug if there are too much burdens that the universe gives us, but you—you made me look forward to every romantic scenes I could picture out, you made me believe that love can make us the happiest.
I am the happiest when I’m with you, and I do not wanna spend the rest of my life without you in it.
Let’s make this world a better place with our love.
those who look
they line our paths,
they’re alive in the veins
that pump the blood
to our hearts,
they influence our stories,
our songs & our art,
they speak to us
in our dreams,
appear each night
with so much to say,
but only some of us
that all of us hold pieces
of the stars that stayed.

“I think perhaps love comes from finding someone you feel utterly comfortable with, someone who makes you comfortable with yourself. It’s like…finding yourself, or maybe it’s like finding the other part of yourself.”
— Candice Proctor, Whispers of Heaven (via books-n-quotes )
It takes one shot,
to capture millions of precious moments,
to save memories,
and to hinder the time from ticking.
As we enjoy every views and angles we had.
It takes one photograph
to tell an unending experiences with you,
to witness how your soul resemble the universe,
and to capture your aesthetic smiles.
But it takes only you
to make those photographs perfect—
for you are the beauteous subject I’ve ever seen in my eyes.
Ganito pala yung pakiramdam kapag sobrang halaga sa'yo ng tao,
hindi pa mulat parehong mga mata ko pero ikaw na agad unang pumapasok sa isip ko.
Gising ka na ba?
Kumain ka na ba?
Nakatulog ka ba ng maayos?
Kung oo ang sagot sa mga tanong, sana ngiti lagi ang bungad ng gising mo sa bawat umagang kahaharapin mo.
Salamat sa bawat umaga na ikaw ang nilalaman ng isip ‘ko, sa ganda ng mga ala-ala mo at sa ligayang binibigay mo.
Salamat sa Magandang Umaga.
Ngayon ko lang napagtanto na nagmamadali pala ang oras. Sana kaya kong makiusap sakanya na bagalan ng onti yung takbo niya–kasama pa kasi kita eh.
Pero hindi nga pala limitado ang oras, kahit kailan hindi mawawala at titigil ‘to. Iikot ng isang araw, babalik sa simula at uulit-ulitin yung nakagawian.
Puwede pala nating sulitin yung oras ng matagal. Kwentuhan, asaran, tawanan at kahit nakabibinging katahimikan; tipong nag-uusap yung isip natin sa lalim ng karagatang nilalangoy nito. Kaso tao yung may hangganan, hindi natin kailanman mapipilit ang oras.
Pero oras nga ba yung dapat pakiusapan o tayo? Sa hindi nga banng limitadong oras makakahiling ako kahit isang beses na bumagal ito kasama ka?
Ano man ang sagot, saglit lang.
Ayoko lang gumalaw yung oras kapag kasama ka, kasi ayaw kong wala ka.
Sobrang saya kasi pag nandyan ka.
Sun brings life.
One star in the sky can light a way to lead sailors home.
nature can bring catastrophes even a single leaves has its disposition in time,
butterfly and birds can bring signs
Even a single day can change someone’s life.
we all have purpose.
You are important.
The universe would be empty without you;
Life will never be the same without you.
Because you also bring change in me
and you made me happy
which I seldom did.
It feels like
I am my own gravity
Constantly pulling myself
where my heart belongs
looking up on you
as you were the stars
shining upon the shadows
of my thoughts
the deepest sea in my soul
calm and quiet
I am my own gravity
making myself fall
to your unending orbit
and I realized
amidst of the force I feel
inside my heart
was the galaxy you built in me
It keeps on falling
‘til I made you
my own universe.
Kahit saglit, sa sandaling oras na nilaan mo naging pinakamasayang tao ako sa buong mundo.
Millions of words will never be enough to delineate how wonderful your existence is, but my heart sees it.
