Manila Skyline

Manila Skyline β­πŸ’›

the Manila skyline is covered with a blazing orange sunset, they say it’s pink, does it really matter?
not for me whose only memory of the sunset is you, you on that fateful afternoon
baby, the sunset is all that i ever had of you
it is what reminds me of you, of your eyes burning with love, burning with passion,
burning with desire
and as the sunset slowly emerged with the night sky
baby we knew, we fell hardly, hardly in love
and along the busy street of Recto
across the Mendiola intersection
where humans were worst traffic than the moving vehicles
we navigated our way in silence, in deep harrowing silence

the sun went down, the traffic was cleared
and so was our chance, our only chance at love
and like that fateful afternoon,
everytime we say adieu
baby i am broken in pieces,
in a million pieces and a million more
the kind of brokenness that is inexplicable
my mind is completely blank
my heart is totally shattered
my soul is absolutely beaten

one fateful afternoon, one sunset
(doesn’t matter whether orange or pink)
one lost love, two broken hearts
two lost souls forever
and here i am trying to make sense of everything
through rhythm and rhyme
through words and syllables
through lines and verses

and, as my words don’t even make sense
or my syllables can’t find their rhythm
nor my verses barely create a thought
i think of you, of you and of our love
on that fateful afternoon, as the sun set,
that afternoon, the Manila skyline turned into
a raging orange sky, there was me
there was you, there was love

Manila skyline, in perfect orange hue
that’s how i loved you.
