why I compared you to the air I breathe

April 1, 2008

just like the air:

I inhale its being
but never to own.

I can put it in my hands
but never to hold.

I can feel it
but never to touch.

so though I know little
of your smile, your stare, your existence,
it helps to think
that you’re just there:
so near, but still so far.

and worry not
if you caught me looking
for I may just be dreaming
of fruitless tomorrows
and vain courage.

..and just like the air I breathe,
I’ll eventually lose you
as I exhale
and leave my ground.

  1. kay sarap mong namnamin…papakin…at lunukin, ngayon pa ma’y bahagi ka ng aking himaymay, ng pagsikhay at ng gunam-gunam…

    may halaga ba ang paghangang ini-ukol ko sa ‘yo? O gugumukin mo ako sa kamandag ng iyong taludtod!

    mahusay ka talagang bumuo ng mga salitang nakakaantig ng puso.
    minsan ako ay iyong pinaluha sa pakikisimpatya dahil sa halagang tatlumpung piso.
    ngayon naman ay patak ng luha ng kaligayahan, ung tipong di mapakali sa kilig kung sakaling para sa akin ang tulang ito.
