“When a lot of things start going wrong all at once, it is to protect something big and lovely that is trying to get itself born - and this something needs for you to be distracted so that it can be born as perfectly as possible.”—Anne Lamott (via Swanfeather Songs)
Like, you meet this person, and at first you hardly pay any attention to them. You may not even really be attracted to this person, but as you get to know them, you notice yourself falling for them. This person that was once average to you has quickly become the greatest, most beautiful person in the world, and perhaps even the most important. It’s just funny looking back. You never saw something like this coming, it kind of just happened.
I was strolling through the park that night, which I usually do everytime I get off from work. There were no clouds to be seen, and dozens of stars peppered the sky. There is a crescent moon hanging from that black dome. Serenity filled the air and I began to relax, breathing in the sweet evening air.
That was until I saw you on the swing, sobbing hysterically. “Must be another heartbroken maiden, pouring her heart out.”, I mused. Then you looked at me, startled by the appearance of a total stranger. I gulped, then strode to where you are.
I asked what the problem was, and offered my perpetually white handkerchief, which I always carry around for situations like these. You accepted the hankie, and proceeded to recount the events which happened earlier. It turned out that your pet dog has gone missing while you were walking her. Just then, there was a sound, hedges rustling nearby. You called your dog’s name, and out she jumped, running towards you. As I saw pet and master reunited, I couldn’t help but get that feeling that I was intruding on something private. I was starting to make my leave when you turned to me and smiled. That was the smile which brightened the night. And thus began my love story, which was forever brightened by that smile.
I watched the two of you from afar. Though it breaks my heart, seeing you laughing and clutching him dearly, I felt a different kind of contentment. I’m happy seeing you smile like that, happy that he gives joy to your life. Tears flowed freely from my eyes, as I backed off and started to walk - walked away from that place, walked away from your life.
“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.”—Oscar Wilde (via quote-book)
As I sat waiting inside my car, different thoughts invaded my consciousness. You being late for our appointment, made me feel resentful towards the fact that you’re always prioritizing your work over me. An hour passed. Then there was a knock, and I saw those Bamby-doe eyes of yours looking through the window. I rolled down the barrier which separates me from your being, and before I could start to say anything, you put your index finger over my lips to shush me off, and kissed me.
I lost myself in that kiss, as it permeated my whole individuality. You broke off, after somewhat like an eternity, caught up with your breathing, smiled, and whispered, “I love you.”
“I want love to be simple. I want to trust without thinking. I want to be generous with my affection and patience and love unconditionally. It is easier to love a person with their flaws than to weed through them. I want to love the whole person, not parts; and this is how I want to be loved.”—Jewel Kilcher, Chasing Down the Dawn (via shaydee604)
“When you close your doors, and make darkness within, remember never to say that you are alone, for you are not alone; nay, God is within, and your genius is within. And what need have they of light to see what you are doing?”—Epictetus (VIA meggroll-taps)
I remember playing FF8 ages ago - well that was my first time being introduced to the series, and I loved it ever since. They released the official app on Google Play, but costs around 700++ bucks, so I had to find a damn workaround to get this game going.
I finally had it figured out, aaaand boom! Life’s ruined for another 2 days at least. LOL
Graphics look good for an Android game.
Oh damn, I sooo miss the RPG turn-based gameplay.
And of course, that fulfilling sound effect after winning each fight, which is a trademark for Final Fantasy games. Tenenenen ten ten tentenen! ♫
Mahal mo nga yung isang tao, Pero bawal naman kayo. Anong gagawin mo? Mag momove on ka nalang ba at magpapakalayo? O ipaglalaban mo kung ano yung nararamdaman mo. Minsan lang daw dumating ang “True Love” Paano kung yung taong pinalagpas mo at hindi mo pinaglaban ang true love mo? Papakawalan mo pa ba? Minsan lang tayo magmamahal, Minsan lang tayo matamaan sa pag ibig ng sobra, Kaya pag dumating na ang taong yun para sayo. Wag mo ng pakawalan at bitawan pa.
