“Alone No More”

In celebration of the hashtag #SentiSaturday, here’s an old poem from 2011 Troy! I used to be scared to look behind my shoulder To look at the eyes of the memories that constantly haunted me Each getting stronger as they grow older Fuelling my demands to be free. Some people are meant to be partContinue reading ““Alone No More””

Lost in London now out on iBooks!

It’s been a while since I posted anything! Hi guys! It’s also been quite a long summer for me. What with my work, being out with friends, watching Miss Saigon (blog entry on that soon!) and just plain ol’ writing, I’m glad to say that my 2013 poetry book Lost in London is now availableContinue reading “Lost in London now out on iBooks!”

“Dear Friend”

So much for I love you if fate isn’t willing to listen, willing to help me with the ride. Guess loving someone wrong left me undone. Remember when you asked me about you because you wanted her? I had to laugh and remind you that she was never really mine. She’s so damn crazy aboutContinue reading ““Dear Friend””

“No Water, No Moon” by Bamboo (2011)

Sa buhay na ito, tayo’y manatili, huminga ng malalim, huminga ng malalim. There’s only so far two musicians whose work has managed to spiritually and emotionally move me away from the ground and into oblivion: June Marieezy and Bamboo. Before fully diving into his musical world, I’ve only really heard Bamboo sporadically through countless replaysContinue reading ““No Water, No Moon” by Bamboo (2011)”

“At My Strongest”

Drums thumping with the heartbeat, Adrenaline racing down, up, up, down, Construction made out of brick and concrete, Human enough to paint this town. Sure, I’ve left promises behind, Crossed thousands of lines around the box, but Have I truly lost my mind? No, I’m just Far from the failure you had to endure, becauseContinue reading ““At My Strongest””

“This Room”

Tell me, how long have we been in this room? Here, where you leaned in bit by bit, resisted back bit by bit until at that split second a beat thumped to that brewing chemistry, only to give in a little too late. Floating around cloud nine for the longest time, you were too cosy,Continue reading ““This Room””

‘Roadtrip’ by Karylle (2011)

I’m starting a new music review segment in my blog to quench my thirst for both writing and music. And to start it off, I feel like it’s only right to begin this whole reviewing thing by focusing on one of my favourite OPM albums. This may be a lot to say about an album,Continue reading “‘Roadtrip’ by Karylle (2011)”

what would you do if…

To those who follow me on social media, they’ll know that #throwbackthursday is my favourite and most used trending topic, alongside its cousins #flashbackfriday, #sentisaturday, and even the ridiculous ones like #memorymonday. Memory lane is kind of like a second home to me. I like having stories to look back on and little anecdotes toContinue reading “what would you do if…”
