stop, smell, sink, swim

i’m sleepy and tired. i wanna get away from things for a sec and just have a moment without thinking of the distractions that are keeping me busy for the time-being. there comes a point when we want to run, just run. then wonder why we’re running in the first place. we stop and ask ourselves what’s happening to us. have we lost touch with the simpler things that it seems hard to step down from the path of ascension? in life, there’s no way but up, if you’re determined to take the road to success and live with it. however, there’re some situations where you just want to cuddle up alone and stare at the sea or the stars, thinking where the heck is orion’s belt since that’s the only thing you remember during one of those starlab visits in your school before. you want to be happy, even forcing a grin on your face, which ends up pitifully done in another view. i dunno if this has something to do with the season, what season is it actually? anyway, have to see a red light, get some flowers, take a dip, or just rest.


You tried so hard to be someone
That you forgot who you are
You tried to fill some emptiness
‘Til all you had spilled over
Now everything’s so far away
That you don’t know where you are, you are

When all that you wanted
And all that you had
Don’t seem so much
For you to hold on to
For you to hold on to

For you to belong to

surprisingly, my mouth remained where it rightfully is, didnt drop when I saw another dumaguete pic. and ed, it doesnt mean na when it already had a ‘closure’, you cant talk about it na because closing is different from forgetting. by ‘closure’, I meant that I wouldnt dwell on it too much na. lol.circee said you went back to dumaguete daw, no pix to share this time?nix

amia: pangontra sa init ng ulo. lol.nix: never meant anything about the pic. on closure, yeah, thought that’s what you meant, stupid of me to think of it literally, when all you meant was you were keeping windows open. :-)yeah, went back and i think im going back again. haven’t totally cleared my siblings’ accounts. pix? nah, i think the blogging community has already had enough of our faces for awhile. want me to send them to your email instead? =)nina: ah yes, time. that’s just the problem. but ill squeeze in some. thanks. :-)ed
