interlude: love



It is clear that I must find my other half. But is it a he or a she? What does this person look like? Identical to me or somehow complementary? Does my other half have what I don't? Did he get the looks? The luck? The love? Were we really separated forcibly or did he just run off with the good stuff? Or did I? Will this person embarrass me? What about sex? Is that how we put ourselves back together again? Or can two people actually become one again?

  1. while reading this, the song What Does She Look Like by Stephen Speaks was playing in my head.

  2. why are you still up? it's almost 4!

    i like stephen speaks. passenger seat is my ultimate videoke song! hehe

    anyway, yeah love comes and goes. it's here right now (i think) and based on your blog posts, it has visited dear engel as well.

    i guess i just felt like posting this because of the idea it proposed- that you were created with someone but you were somehow separated. there's always that nagging thought about the other person and if you could somehow put your selves back together. it's an idea not dissimilar to soulmates- something i swore i wouldn't believe in anymore but still persists in my head.

    or i could have just had too much coffee. *yawn* time for bed.

  4. isang bagay lamang ang nasa aking isipan sa mga oras na ito

    hindi naman hinahanap ang ganiyang bagay

    dahil kung hahanapin mo iyon, hindi mo mapapansin na andiyan na pala siya.

    dahil nakatuon ang atensyon mo sa paghahanap sa kaniya

    at hindi mismong sa kaniya

    just thinking out loud.

    hehehe

  12. @dhon ~ welcome to my blog! i haven't read that book but it seems interesting. reminds me of jessica simpson's i belong to me.

    @anteros ~ hindi ba siya dapat hinahanap? wait lang ha.. call off the hounds!!!

    you have a very good point. di rin naman ako naghahanap.

    @engel ~ makes sense. kohl zenner karin ba tulad namin ni yas?

    @the geek ~ i think we found each other. haha

    @curioscat ~ xtian? istatchu? yeah, being in love feels good. it's when it runs out that totally sucks. haha

    @nash ~ aren't u 23? u met when you were 3 or was 20 years metaphorical?

    @LOF ~ this post is just the product of being completely idle, slightly emo and watching hedwig and the angry inch.

    @dabo ~ yeah. downloaded it a few months ago but i only got to see it in its entirety a week ago.

    @ruby ~ yeah, everything in time.

    @maxwell&jepoy~ i think it has. it's not love but it's sort of getting there. i think. haha tignan nalang natin.

  15. @rej ~ hey~ welcome to my blog. thanks for sharing that quote. i'm a fan (although not as big as u, methinks) of his work. he's very smart.

    @LOF ~ i didn't realize you were so emo. i always thought you just have really, really deep thoughts. haha po-tay-to po-tah-to?

    i first heard of hedwig when someone left a comment on my sticks story. i downloaded it a long time ago but i only got to watch it recently. me likes it! (obviously haha)

    ReplyDelete
  16. not really, no. but kinda. if that makes sense. =)

  17. i guess i just have to think of other jobs na panggabi.. maybe you're a secret service agent or a major pimp or you're strangely allergic to sunlight. haha or maybe i should just stop prying. haha

  18. emo and deep thinking.... same thing, di ba?

    ReplyDelete
  19. pwet ba yan? hihi. di ko parin napapanood to! maka torrent nga

    ReplyDelete
  20. Just keep looking, mahahanap din yan ;P

    Good luck!

  21. yihee..naiinip ka na? malay mo..nasa tabi-tabi lang yan..wag mo hanapin..hintayin mo lang..kung hindi dumating..mag-rosaryo ka na sa quiapo. :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. @LOF ~ IMHO it uses different body parts. you use your brain for deep thoughts and your heart (the metaphorical one at least) to emo. hehe

    @toxic ~ yup. tsaka hips. go see it. it's really nice.

    @bryan&chico ~ i think it has. it's not love but it's getting there. i think. haha tignan nalang natin. (copy paste?)

  23. so true.... you know in Buddhist physiology, we see the heart/mind as the same thing located in the chest and the head, well, its the head... central location for mindless thinking...
