Letter To The One Who Gave Me The Sincerest Company

2 Mar

I wrote this August last year, a month after I decided to quit you and the things we enjoyed doing together. This is almost never written.

My Dearest G.,

You and I once acted together in the most beautiful love story ever written. Only we didn’t know who’s the beloved, who’s the lover.

We would have been smart to take that as a sign. Walking on one side of the highway, I left my crowd and crossed over to join in your lone drinking game. I knew the benefits of your friendship.

I accompanied you to the places you knew where we sat alone together to the passing of time, drinking and smoking through dusk until dawn. We were good at ignoring the commotion of all those inside. When the early hours came, we left, slugging from a bottle of beer until we stole urgently fueled kisses in the car we took a free ride. The alcohol allowed us weeks full of meaningful glances to materialize into something malicious and gossipy that I said I regret. For now, after all those times, you surrendered to it.

You always brought your lighter to light my cigarette. Always, the flame reflected in your clear eyes betrayed your intentions. As our grip on each other grew tighter, we fell deeper and deeper. I supposed if we stumbled through a field, we would have collapsed in a loving embrace.

But our story was not as quite remarkable as Shakespeare had written it. You knew you were being used, as did I, but we made a passing agreement to ignore it. Afterwards, we lay for a while, smoking, staring up into the starry night sky. Just a classic picture of romance. As it started to rain, we headed home. We no longer kissed. We forgot the desire of us to feel the love as it was in our illusions.

We emerged back into our crowd and started to be what we were once to each other, exchanging welcoming glances as if every day was our first meeting. Our friends would have forgotten our escape. Don’t worry, I didn’t tell as many people as you thought.

As our goodbyes never happen, promises of future contact will still string us together. But more than anything else, let me tell you, and I’m gonna say this for once:

I’ve always preferred your company (even if our activity is killing me, literally.)

Apologetically,
L.

    hays..nalungkot naman ako..pero siguro nga lahat talaga ng bagay ay may hangganan, at yun ang kailangan nating tanggapin..there’s no such thing as “forever.” we just have to savor every moment of it while it’s still ‘good’, dahil sabi nga ni Nelly Furtado sa kanta niya.. “Flames to dust, lovers to friends…all good things come to an end.” 😐

    wow! what a great epistle! say thank you to him. “thank you for being a person that you are..”. hehe. (writing while singing, “muling ibalik, ang tamis ng pag-ibig. muling pagbigyan ang pusong nagmamahal). Lol.

    This reminded me of a film with Coco Martin in it. I think Daybreak’s the title.

    If you know the film, was it almost the same thing? Just hiding your secret affair from the others, having your own world, and pretending as if nothing ever happened after everything? Sorry, don’t mean to pry but was he closeted?

    Hmmm….. Coco Martin.. *drools*

    • Suckingbird March 3, 2010 at 2:26 pm #

      he’s not. he’s actually flambouyant. haha. it’s just about the crowd we’re in. something happened that made a worst impression on him.. and our common friends would certainly freak out kung mallman nila na “he” and I had something…

      daybreak.. yes, i have to watch that movie.

    Gaano kalalim ang iniwang marka ng taong yan?

    Namahika ako sa iyong sulat.

    Wikang banyaga ulit, pero naramdaman ko ang nais mong ipahayag.

    Ang mundo mo ba ay mundo ko rin?

    Nasa magkaibang mundo tayo pero ang humaharang lamang ay ang kaibahan ng panahon, ng paniniwala, ng mga taong gumagalaw sa tagpo.

    • Suckingbird March 4, 2010 at 10:28 am #

      punta ka dito jkul. join forces tayo 🙂

    Ito ay isang inosenteng tanong.

    Nakapalipot ako sa mga kabataang may tinatawag na top at bottom, butch at effem.

    Sana tama ako ng pagkakarinig.

    Gusto kong maunawaan lalakeng bago na naman ang hairdo.

  10. Suckingbird March 4, 2010 at 10:34 am #

    1. top —-> the one who does the labor
    2. bottom —> the receiver
    3. versatile —> the one who can do both ways

    4. butch —-> physically masculine
    5. effem —-> short for effeminate (mahinhin), but doesn’t necessarily mean faggotry.

      Saan ka nahahanay diyan Sir?

      Masyado ng personal, ayos naman kung hindi mo sasagutin.

      Dahil pag sinagot mo, maraming kasunod na tanong.

  11. Suckingbird Keller March 5, 2010 at 12:54 pm #
