Love and hate quotes from a bald EMO

(mga kataga ng hinanakit at pag-ibig mula sa isang emoterong kalbo(repost for Valentine’s day))

love and hate quotesSome broken things should be left broken. You’ll end up hurting yourself badly by trying to pickup the pieces and putting it back together.


Let go of yesterday and love will find its way back to you. And when it does, pray that it may be the love that will stay and last a lifetime.


“I Still believe in Happy Endings…”


Sana kaya kitang pasayahin… pasayahing muli… sana kaya kitang alagaan… alagaan muli … sana akin ka na lang… akin ka na lang muli… sana ako na lang.. ako na lang ulit… Sana makita ka… makitang muli… sana makasama ka… makasamang muli… sana habambuhay… magpakailanman…


How does one remove something that has become part of his soul? And consider my condition. My heart does not feel broken so much as it feels as if it has simply stopped. Yet in this fragile state, I am expected to summon up the will and strength to overcome love, the world’s strongest force?


I often catch myself constantly wondering how you are, sitting alone with my mind set so far, reminiscing about your smile, your voice and touch. Damn this life! I’m missing you too much!


Will my eyes ever forget a beauty that once stunned them into tears? Will my skin forget the fingers that expressed such tender love through the softest of touches? Will my ears not recall the laughter that, in the worst of times, made life brim with hope and spirit? And how shall my heart forget the love and devotion that made every emotion I ever felt before seem pale in comparison? Yes, the images may fade, and recollections of words and events will probably get fuzzy. But there are memories so integrated into my being that I fear they shall pass only when I do.


Words could not express how much you mean to me
There must be some other way to make you see
If it takes my heart and soul you know I’d pay the price
Everything that I possess I’d gladly sacrifice
Though you’re close to me, we seem so far apart
Maybe given time you’ll have a change of heart
If it takes forever girl, then I’m prepared to wait
The day you give your love to me won’t be a day too late


Sacrifices are not enough to make someone stay…


if you didn’t saw me as a changed person before… i’m sorry for that…
i never loved anyone else the way i loved you… and still loving you…
you can’t blame me for losing my positive side…
you can’t blame me for shouting negatively…
only i, myself, is to blame…


If you love someone, ask them for nothing.
Don’t hold them back from their destiny.
Don’t keep them from going off in search of their own answers.

Don’t ask them for commitment.
You will know commitment is real when it is something given willingly and not as something obligatory.


Why can’t I be RICH? instead of GOOD LOOKING :)


I need space… =((


I keep holding on. Some say I’m stupid. Some say I’m crazy. But, they can never know what it was like. They can never know how it felt. I keep loving you. Most people call me pathetic. Most people call me insane. But, they can never know what I’m going through. They will never see what I see. They will never feel the w…ay I feel. So, I’ll just keep holding on and keep on loving you.

Somewhere, somehow, it should be possible to touch someone and never let go again.To hold someone, not for a moment but forever.


Be careful to whom you give your heart. When you give your heart to someone, you’re not only giving that person the right to love you. Falling in love also gives to the one you love the power to hurt you…


Everyone tells me to give up on you. They can’t see you like I do. You’re the one who broke my heart, you’re the reason my whole world fell apart, you’re the one who makes me cry, but I still love you and I don’t know why.


Never make a promise if you’re going to break it, never talk about your feelings if they are not really there. Never say I LOVE YOU if you don’t mean it. Never touch someone’s life if you mean to break it.
