Panakip-butas

Title: Panakipbutas
By: Yours Truly

Malungkot ka na naman at nag-iisa
Hindi mapakali, hindi magkandaugaga,
Naghahanap ng kausap sa akin
At humahagilap masasandalan sa aking balikat.

Heto naman ako, ang magliligtas sa’yo.
Magbabasag ng oras, makita ka lamang.
Magpapakatibay sa nararamadaman,
Iiwasang umasa at mahulog habang ikaw ay nandiyan.

Habang kinukumpuni tayo ng panahon,
Hayaan muna nating ikaw ay maghilom.
‘Wag pansinin ang sugat ng puso ko,
Dahil mas magdurugo ito kapag ika’y nalulungkot.

Isigaw mo sa akin ang lahat ng galit mo,
Suntukin ang aking dibdib kasamabay ng pagtangis mo.
Ako na lamang ang sasalo ng mga ito,
Dahil matibay naman ako kapag nasa tabi kita.

‘Wag mo lang akong tititigan sa mata,
O hahawakan ang akin kamay,
Dahil sa mga simpleng pagkilos mong ganito,
Ako sa’yo ay muli na namang bibigay.

Hayaan mo na lang maging panakipbutas ako
Nang sa iyong paglisan, pagkatapos nito,
Kakayaning kong tumalikod nang hindi nasasaktan.
Kakayanin kong umikot at tanggapin lahat.

Tatanggapin ko lahat na ako’y kaibigan mo…lang.
Walang kang iisipin na na ako’y masasaktan.
Pagkat narito ako para sa’yo
Anuman ang paulit-ulit mong dahilan.

Basta alam mong mahal na mahal kita,
Basta alam mong naririto lang ako,
Ayos lang iyon para sa akin,
Ang mahalaga ako ang tinatakbuhan mo.

Hihilingin ko na lang na balang-araw
Hindi ka na tatakbong palayo sa akin;
Na sana ang gabi na ito,
Ito ang huling paglisan mo sa aking piling.

Mr. You’re-Not-For-Me

When I wrote this I was in the shoes of the fabulous Taylor Swift, during her “White Horse” and “Teardrops on my Guitar” era. I wondered how she would thought of a boy that wasn’t really meant for her and the way she would move on.

So here it is… I hope you’d love it.

Maybe you were the perfect guy,
But you’re not for me.
You’ve got the eyes I’m looking for,
You’re not for me.
They said I could find my prince,
But I guess it wasn’t you.
They said I could find love,
I think it ain’t from you.

The moment I realized the truth,
I know this one for you is a fling.
While I gave you my heart,
You were slowly destroying me…

Mr. Prince Charming, I knew you were real.
Mr. Boy-Next-Door, you were sitting right beside me.
Mr. Dream Boy, you were there and you woke up with me.
But mister, mister, mister…

…you are not for me.

I loved to touch the bridge of your nose,
But not anymore.
Your height fits me,
But we ain’t compatible.
They said you’re so cute,
I guess I have to agree.
But when they asked “D’ya love him?”
I said, “you were only just a dream!”

The moment I realized the truth
I know this one for you is a fling.
While I gave you my heart,
You were slowly destroying me…

Mr. Prince Charming, I knew you were real.
Mr. Boy-Next-Door, you were sitting right beside me.
Mr. Dream Boy, you were there and you woke up with me.
But mister, mister, mister…

…you are not for me.


Death Can Only Close Jealous Eyes

I don’t know why I’m feeling this over
And over until I cry.
I can’t breathe, I can’t sleep
Just the way others are doin’.
I trust but I think it’s not enough.

Why do I always doubt
Even though I have all his hands?
I can’t grow, I can’t move
The way other simply smile.
I beg God to stop this hurt inside.

I hate when I see him with you.
I hate when he’s there where I supposed to be.
You’re all I’ve ever had.
You’re all I’ve dreamed.
Oh, I wish there was another way
Coz death can only close jealous eyes.

I miss the days when I was young
When worries were gone instantly
I shouldn’t have let go of that feeling
I’m afraid, I regret
I can’t go back to those days

I hope I was always like my mother
Who never fear the darkness of her days
I want, I wish I had a heart like her
Who learned to move on
And leave it in a prayer.

I hate when I see him with you.
I hate when he’s there where I supposed to be.
You’re all I ever had.
You’re all I’ve dreamed.
Oh, I wish there’s another way
Coz death can only close jealous eyes.
