Thought-Provoking Photos From Vegas and The 1975’s Robbers

She had a face straight outta magazine
God only knows but you’ll never leave her
Her balaclava is starting to chafe
And when she gets his gun he’s begging, “Babe, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay.”

You imagine the kind of love he had before you. That last heartache he’ll never forget. Then you imagine what it feels like to be a man who was left behind. He still had her photographs hanging on the walls of his 4-walled room. The frames are polished to perfection, it looks out of place in his trashy, smoke-filled space. Her scarlet scarf is still in his drawer where she last left it, and he said it still smells like her. He said the words so beautifully and silently that you’re pretty sure you can hear your own heart shatter.

He’s sleeping beside you and you looked at him in awe, thinking how lucky she was and how she lose it all.

You wrote something on a piece of tissue paper and left.

13_invention_and_tradition_21

I’ll give you one more time,
We’ll give you one more fight,
Said one more line,
Will I know you?

You were driving in the city and you don’t want to admit that you’re lost, just like you don’t want to admit that you’re the one who’s falling on a game that you started. There are bright and blinking lights everywhere but they all seem lifeless to you.

He called you and asked you to come over – after four months of no communication – and you willingly agree. You’re still fighting after all this time, without knowing that somebody already won and that’s not you. He’s everything you ever wanted, and he’s everything that you can never have. But it doesn’t matter because you love him and he wants you.

* * *

13_invention_and_tradition_24

Now everybody’s dead
And they’re driving past my old school
He’s got his gun, he’s got his suit on
She says, “Babe, you look so cool,”

 You go through his apartment’s already familiar hallways, and it’s funny because it smelled a lot like rain. You were still pondering about your stupidity for coming over when you already know what will happen. You knock on his door and starts to bite your lower lip out of anxiety, it’s an old habit that you have, and he hates it.

He finally opens the door and smiles. And that smile broke you down for the first time in this one and a half year affair. Because it was that kind of smile that assures you he’ll never let you go again now. It was a smile of relief, of gratitude. He takes you inside his blue room and you were surprised how different it is now.

There are no more photos hanging in his room. You look on the battered nightstand and there’s a tissue paper with words in your own handwriting.

“When you already know what you want, call me.”

Okay, I’m trying to do something different here. I’m trying to defy the norms of blogging (if there’s any.) So I’m trying to incorporate images with a certain song and see what kind of emotions will take place. Let me clarify that this is just an experiment and I have no idea if somebody already did this kind of shit. The photos and the song belong to their rightful owners (please see below.)

So tell me, what do you think? 🙂

Here are my other literary works.

Chanel Fall-Winter 2014-2015

Posted on

Chanel brings back the regal age of Baroque period with their F/W 14-15 collection. Some of the pieces are made of golds and reds while others stayed true to Chanel’s black and white palette.

chanel-fall-winter-2014-15-haute-couture-looks-31I have a knack for carefree and classy clothing, and Chanel’s latest collection gives me no option but drool over those pretty, laid-back dresses. Karl Lagerfeld impressed me a lot because I’m not a fan of Chanel (except for their Mademoiselle EDT which is beyond gorgeous!) and by seeing this very collection, I just wanted to go to him and hug him if it weren’t because of his entourage and my lame French.

chanel-fall-winter-2014-15-haute-couture-looks-29Lagerfeld incorporates the royal age with the modern fashion of today’s era. I love the dresses, period. But I don’t exactly know what to feel about the sandals with straps, it was paired with modern edgy hair and strong brows. It looks so out of place but you won’t mind because the whole thing is perfectly packaged on the runway.

chanel-fall-winter-2014-15-haute-couture-looks-30God, I love it.

Each of these Haute Couture pieces are meticulously crafted and woven to perfection. When you look closer, everything is in perfect detail, which makes sense because the whole scene and ambiance in Grand Palais, Paris yesterday (July 8) is almost divine. My favorite is the last dress shown. It seems like a bridal gown but hey, it looks so enchanting and royal.

Mac x The Simpsons is Here!

Posted on


simpson-logo600Yes, Yes, YEEEEEES! It’s finally here! MAC Cosmetics and the Simpsons collaboration will hit the stores Worldwide! This will be launched by Mac on July 26 in San Diego’s Comi-Con. This will then hit the internet world on August 28 and will be readily available worldwide by September 4.

Filipino Fans need not to worry, because on the same date, this will also be available on MAC Rockwell and MAC Glorietta (isn’t that amazing?!)

201407maccosmeticssimpsonsgalThe collection is composed of blush-ons, false eyelashes, nail stickers, eye-shadow palettes, and lip gloss. Some of the prices aren’t available at the moment but that doesn’t matter, right? What matters most is that Marge Simpson finally got her make-up line (courtesy of MAC, LOL)

Marge was even interviewed about MAC’s upcoming The Simpsons make-up line and here’s what she says about her favorite pieces, “They’re all so great, but I must say that Lisa’s Spikes really works well with my skin tone and of course, Beehive Blue complements my hair perfectly.”

I’m so rooting for this. I can’t even wait to see them in person (and maybe try a Marge-inspired Make-up, haha!)

All in all, Kudos to Mac Cosmetics and their never ending creativity!

Flowers And Feminism

Posted on

 

So I’ve bumped upon this “Run Like a Girl” campaign from Always and I’ve never been so proud of my gender. *Blushes*

People have this notion that being a woman means being weak. Maybe because we’re always the ones who loved way too much and are always vocal about it. Maybe because we are allowed to cry. Or maybe because the society protects us more because of the fact that more and more men perceive us as sex objects.

The truth is it’s a man’s world, and it will always be until the women of our generation make their stand and decides to tell the world that women, like men, deserves the freedom to walk alone at night without ever worrying about rape, the freedom to speak their mind in law school without being judge for being a woman, the right to choose when she needs to settle down without people telling her that she’s beyond her time. We don’t need strong-willed and outspoken women, we need women who knows their worth and decides when to say “NO” when they’re not enjoying themselves anymore.

We need women who travels a lot so she knows her value in the eyes of every race, of every community. We need women who reads and who writes, so she’ll drown the world with her words, with her wit, with her intelligence. And even if our current situation still involves sexism and misogyny, our minds will be free.

Lastly, we need a woman who’s unbiased, who knows that respect needs to be earned. That in order to be respected, we must also respect others. That in order to not be judged, we should also refrain from being judgmental. That feminism aims for gender equality, not gender greatness. We shouldn’t think that we are better than men, rather, we should keep in mind that we are equal to men.

We need the world to know that rape isn’t okay, and it will never be. That gender oppression is not our fault. We are striving for equality because we want to prove that we are not weak, that it’s okay to run for marathons and win. That it’s okay to beat a man’s ass in Tekken, that it’s okay to wear whatever we like without being called a whore or a slut, that high heels and lipstick doesn’t really mean that we’re dumb. And that wearing our bikini doesn’t mean that we’re asking to be sexually assaulted.

And I am not only calling the attention of all our women. I am also trying to reach our men. Weigh your words carefully, respect women because you want to get the same respect. If you offend a woman, think about your mother, your grandma, your sisters, your wife, your daughter. Think about how it feels like if you were sodomized and your ass was ripped open by someone because you’re a weak shit.

Think about that. And think about that real hard.

That Moment When You Have No Idea How to Write a 250-word Article About Headset Batteries

That Moment When You Have No Idea How to Write a 250-word Article About Headset Batteries

This is one of my favorite poems. Written by Shinji Moon, a young and contemporary poet living in New York City. She’s only 19 years old and I don’t know where she gets her poetry talent. She’s composed of metaphors, ideologies, broken hearts, and words that linger in your bones and in your whole being. I just love her!

Anyway, as per the poem, how do we exactly know if we’re already hurting another person, especially those people that we loved the most?

Sometimes, we thought we’re loving them, that we are protecting them, that they need saving and we are the ones who can actually do the thing. And by doing that, we have no idea that we’re slowly pulling their arms and legs and breaking them in the process.

But how do we know? We will never understand their smokes and photo albums and beers and huge handwriting. We will never understand them until we suffered the same fate.

And once we do understand what’s happening, it’s always too late to apologize.

Day One

Day One

“These are the hands of fate, you’re my Achilles heel. This is the golden age of something good and right and real. And I never saw you coming, and I’ll never be the same.”

I just saw this photo on Tumblr and I don’t even know what to feel. So many emotions in a span of 24 hours and I’m tired of all the drama and all the shits and all the pretensions and fake, imposing people.

Something’s clear to me though: we always cry because it matters.

I cried beside you inside that sad, yellow room when an Alison Krauss song starts playing on the radio. I cried because I’m weak and you’re so damn important to me.

And you will always be.

He Should Be a Good Boy

He should be a good boy poem

He Should Be a Good Boy poem

Somebody sent me an email to give me some advice and pointers regarding my poems (Thank you, Nellie!). As you can see, most of my poems are all about love because that’s the easiest subject for me. So today, I tried to venture into something completely different and I decided to write a poem about faith, religion, and humanity. (Actually, I wrote this yesterday. LMAO)

Faith and religion are two different things. You can be faithful without your religion but you can’t be religious without being faithful. And I think that one of the main reasons for religion’s diversity is because of our lack of faith. Given our cognitive privileges, only a human being has the power to change the world’s view about everything. Maybe that’s where it all started. Someone insisted that his God is the real God, without realizing that their Gods is all the same. Yeah, it’s kinda hard to explain but you get what I mean, right? (That’s just a wild guess, anyway.)

Moving on, this is my poem and I hope ya’ll enjoy this. Just send me an email on my “CONTACT ME” page if you have suggestions or whatsoever. 😉

Remember to always be a good human, alright? 🙂

Don’t Ever Let Them Detain You

Flowers for Kimberly

Photo for inspirational purposes only. All texts are mine. 🙂

Sometimes, we care about a person way too much. Sometimes, they take us for granted and we let them because we know that it’s what we deserve. Sometimes, it hurts so bad that we don’t feel a thing and crying nor screaming won’t pacify us. They always told us to move on, without ever knowing that we almost lost our lives trying to. We have no idea how to be whole again and they have no idea how it feels like to be broken every time.

They don’t understand us because they don’t understand our pain, they hurt us and we let them because we love them too much. And the sad part is that our “too much” will never be enough. We could’ve offered them the world and everything that we have and everything that we will ever be, but they refused it. And we spent the rest of our lives wondering why.

Sometimes, we need to save ourselves; we need to fix ourselves, because no one will ever do that for us. Sometimes, we need to realize that we need to be happy, and we should let ourselves be happy. We will still love them, that’s for sure. Even after all these years, even after all the pain. We will still love them as eagerly as we have loved them before. Girls like us, we are doomed to love like that. And it’s only right that this time, someone would actually love us the way we always wanted to be loved, that someone would actually love us and all our brokenness.

We should get our papers, take a passport photo, and apply for a visa. Get a plane ticket, pack our bags, and put on our best shoes. We will leave the cold nights, cigarette butts, and unsaid words behind because we are going to a place where they would never ever find us.

“She’s gone, she lost it”, they will say, without knowing that they’re the ones who lose us. And as years will pass by, there will be a legend in the town that once swore us, about a girl who loved too much…

and left.
