maybe the lines said so.

>> 27.10.10

these hands.
they can write a thousand words of infidelity
and pain in the cleanest of ashen paper
they can blot every wall with fury
and beyond the pale abhorrence
because these hands
they are mine.

and these very same hands
they can score through each letter in a jiffy
and daub blissful colors in neon hue
yes, they can forget, exonerate the worst.

yet the palms can constantly wound without one remnant
and let you bleed until you lay down your arms on me
but they won’t.

for these hands
they are no longer mine
they are yours already.

take them.
say yes.

*written months months ago in a scratch paper and mongol pencil. hear me, hear me when i'm not talking.

One. You got me singing this:

Two. There, you got me dead-curious again! Haha! Could that creepy guy in Yes Man be of help? I have his calling card, just in case. I am most willing to share it with whoever-now-owns-the-hands. Haha!

Three. This is ♥.

By the way, I am still waiting for that one day in 2015 (or is it 2013?)... Oh, did I tell you ahh.. you always do! Grrr. ;)

oh, haven't watched yes man. can't relate ang lola mo. oh, wait. did i just forget that already watched it? (head's aching trying to remmber some scenes) now, you tell me if i'm suffering from a selective amnesia. because i also can't remember what's with 2015 or 2013 that you are oddly looking forward to.

hello?? you've seen yes man ne keya! sa office mo pa pinanood. kaya makarelate ka lola! (9_9)

selective amnesia ka jan. was "it" that traumatic that it needs to be deliberately forgotten? remember, repressed/suppressed memories usually come back when you least expect them. you have to be prepared, they might just come flooding back.

pa-check up ka. :P
