XO – John Mayer Version

 

Your love is bright as ever
Even in the shadows
Baby kiss me
Before they turn the lights out
Your heart is glowing
And I’m crashing into you
Baby kiss me, kiss me
Before they turn the lights out
Before they turn the lights out
Baby love me lights out

In the darkest night hour
I’ll search through the crowd
Your face is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby, love me lights out
Baby, love me lights out

We don’t have forever
Baby daylight’s wasting
You better kiss me
Before our time is run out
Nobody sees what we see
They’re just hopelessly gazing
Baby take me, take me
Before they turn the lights out
Before time is run out
Baby love me lights out

In the darkest night hour
I’ll search through the crowd
Your face is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby, love me lights out
Baby, love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

I love you like XO
You love me like XO
You kill me girl XO
You love me like XO
Is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby love me lights out
Baby love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

In the darkest night hour
I’ll search through the crowd
Your face is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby, love me lights out
Baby, love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

Walking On A Dream – Empire of the Sun

Walking on a dream
How can I explain
Talking to myself
Will I see again

We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out and out again
Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Thought I’d never see
The love you found in me
Now it’s changing all the time
Living in a rhythm where the minutes working overtime

We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out and out again
Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Catch me I’m falling down
Catch me I’m falling down

Don’t stop just keep going on
I’m your shoulder lean upon
So come on deliver from inside
All we got is tonight that is right ’till first light

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

On my joining day
A guy in a black polo
Never left my mind

His smile makes my day
Whenever we’re together
I can’t help but fall

Little did I know
He will be holding my hand
For the years to come

First attempt in writing a haiku! The 5-7-5 syllabication is kinda challenging. I don’t know if “we’re” can be considered as one syllable. But nonetheless I feel proud of my work haha! ๐Ÿ˜…

Enjoy!!! C:

Many Happy Returns (of the day)

Last week was Gid’s birthday. I wanted to make it as memorable as possible since it’s his first birthday away from his family (last year they went here to Singapore) and as my boyfriend. ๐Ÿ™‚ I collected videos from his family, friends and relatives, I almost got caught when he saw a notification from one of his guy friends on my facebook messenger. *close call huhu*

On the eve of the special day, I was planning to sneak into their house and greet him together with his housemates. But they said that he’s at the living room, so we had no choice but for me to enter the house with his knowledge. :< I have to leave his gift outside as not to arouse suspicion.

Birthday wishes from officemates ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry I have to leave you outside xD

As I entered, I told him that I’m going straight to the restroom.Meanwhile, his housemates were hiding in the kitchen while preparing the cake, the common room restroom was also located there. Kaye was already lighting the first candle when the kitchen door suddenly opened, we were both shocked and surprised to see the birthday boy. :(( He said that he followed me since I was taking too long to return from the restroom (my bad! grrr , epic fail man! =))). But still the show must go on, we proceeded as planned.

Not-so-surprised birthday boy xD

Little did he know that I already planned another surprise for the weekend, and fortunately that one caught him off guard. >:D It was a staycation at Park Avenue Rochester hotel at Buona Vista. The hotel management upgraded the suite when they learned that I was planning a surprise celebration.The staff even helped me in decorating the room and executing my plans (three thumbs up, you guys totally rocked! <3)

Post-celebration surprise haha! ๐Ÿ˜›
What it looked like:

We watched the compiled birthday video at night. I’m so glad I was able to edit it decently, somehow. =)) Messages in the video were a mixture of English and Filipino. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hoping that this will be one of the many birthdays that we will celebrate together baby! ๐Ÿ™‚

Gideon

I want to write a poem
containing everything
that I liked and loved
about you.

But alas! Twenty-six letters
of the alphabet are not enough
to encapsulate even a single flake
of your being.

But still, l will try,
because this feeling
would not even let my head
go to slumber.

For all that has been and will be
one thing is for certain,
you, my beloved, is an
endless metaphor…

You are a wild fire that burns
my skin with every single touch.
You are the blood that rushes
to my lips to bring out the life in it.

You are the truth that shakes
the very foundation of my soul.
You are the beam of light that illuminates
the deepest abyss of my mind.

You are the faith that uplifts
this fallen spirit of mine.
You are the certainty that erases
every doubt in my heart.

I will stop here for now,
for elucidating you is a limitless venture,
just like my love: unbounded, inexhaustible, enduring
in this finite world of ours.

My first poem for the year. I was torn between writing an ode and a haiku, but look where I ended up… writing a free verse! ^^;
Haha it took me this long to create a new one. I’ve been busy with work and dates for the past months. ๐Ÿ˜€

Kismet.

This was a story of girl meets boy
and it was not a love story
from the start

It’s your typical chick flick,
where she fell faster than gravity’s pull
but has played the roleย of his pal

Pride was her sharpest sword,
inexperience his strongest shield
making it hard for cupid to do his job

A year almost passed,
both went their separate paths
with other people being their firsts

Nurtured by triumphs
and withered by bad decisions
they continued to grow apart

Then a sudden plot twist
has shaken things a bit,
making their roads cross again.

All they needed was a second chance
for the girl full of yesterday’s scars,
and for the boy haunted by past faults.

She didn’t see it coming,
the day those three words
slipped through the boy’s lips.

Was it really fate or not?
nobody can ever tell
both only knew they fell

This is a story of girl meetsย boy
and it’s a love story
currently in-progress. ๐Ÿ™‚

———————————–

This is my first attempt in writing a poem after a year. I wrote this in the wee hours of the morning so please pardon if it lacks artistic style or even coherence.

I’ll try creating another one in my free time. xD

Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

[Chorus]
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

[Chorus]
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along

———————————–

This song is so beautiful… It reminds me of the time when feelings start to blossom once again. A time for new beginnings. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can listen to this song over and over until I fall asleep, the melody is so dreamy. โ˜บ๏ธ

Kris Allen’s version in American Idol was also nice. ๐Ÿ˜

Mouthful Of Forevers

I am not the first person you loved.You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when weโ€™d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.

This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness.
You
will hold me like Iโ€™m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book
.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you
.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
itโ€™s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether itโ€™s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.

 

– Clementine von Radics

I really love this poem. ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope I can write something as beautiful as this, I’ll try composing one during my spare time. ๐Ÿ˜€

What It Felt Like To Love You

You were the closest thing I ever felt to home.
Every hug that reminded me why humans need to touch…

This is how it feels…

Thought Catalog

Joe St.PierreJoe St.Pierre

You were the closest thing I ever felt to home.
A welcome mat smile with a fireplace laugh,
Knowing I could collapse into you when the gravity of everything else
turned my bones to shackles.
When life held me down against my own will,
Shoved my face in gravel, gasps for breath between mouthfuls of dirt.
I could kick off my shoes and rest in you.
Rest in a place that I was always meant to be.
Because it was always supposed to be us.
At least, thatโ€™s what you told me.
And I never felt more safe than when I could look up at your constellations.
Slip off Orionโ€™s Belt,
And you could slip into me.

Every song thatโ€™s ever given me tingles.
Every hug that reminded me why humans need to touch.
Every moonlit secret that traveled from my lips to yours.
Every broken promise toโ€ฆ
