HE LIVED THE WAY HE KNEW HOW. That will be my epitaph. When people would speak about me at my funeral, I want them to speak about a man who has lived his life the way he knew how. That’s all that matters to me — that I have lived my life, the only fucking […]

Everyday as soon as I wake up, I’m immediately — without a single consideration if I had a good night’s sleep or not — bombarded with a barrage of concerns: physiological, social, work, family. As the day drags on I’m strenuously juggling all these aspects of living that by the end of the day I’m […]

As I’m writing this in the dead of night, there’s a beautiful lady sleeping on my bed. Hers is a beauty that would make me squander my sanity for a few moments of basking under its light. I gaze at her naked body from my study table — she’s soundly sleeping, removed from all the cares of […]

I love you because — there’s no because I just do love you. And this fortuitous, causeless love for you has always been enough for me. I hope it’s enough for you, too.

…and I won’t relent, not when it comes to finding you. I will prowl the foreboding streets of Ormoc, brave the suffocating atmosphere of Cebu, wade through the sordid floods of Manila, roam the melancholic avenues of Rome, cruise through the lonely canals of Venice, wander through the mocking cafes in Paris — hunting for […]

This is not goodbye. This is me saying go and chase your dreams as I chase mine. Get to know yourself more, enjoy the company of yourself, fall in love with yourself. This is not goodbye. This is me hoping to see you after you find yourself, after you have enough of guys who won’t […]
