I’ve always had a certain fondness for empty streets. I think they’re beautiful, especially set against a vast expanse of black and whites.
By all means, I’m supposed to be sleeping in my own bed, safe and sound at home, but I’m not. I’m not supposed to be walking in the middle of that street at midnight, but I am. I’m running away with something on that night, like I have every night before that. Where I should go, I honestly didn’t really know, or how I ended up there in the first place. There are no motorelas or jeepneys or people to call out anyone, or street vendors to ask if I wanted to buy whatever it is they sell. It’s just me, the ryhtmic sound of the beating of my own heart and the cold night.
At one stop, I associated with a group of friends waver into pavements, drunk with liquor and laughter. I might have even interallied with what they did. I had one act of first that moment I wish I could mention, but can’t. I snickered from all their stupid jokes and remember to tell a few of them to my friends back at home.
There’s was one stop, I knew was home to most of the people who wanted to leave everything off and just celebrate. There was always a reason to celebrate in that place, somewhere with neon lights, and loud music. I’d watch the aerial eruptions of lights shine off my fellow wanderer’s faces as they shifted to look on in nostalgia.
Another stop was the most rare among everything that happened on that journey. It was the kind that makes you expect to feel and just know all sorts of butterflies taking flight and making up for lost times. I continued to walk, but this time I wasn’t alone. I was with someone not very familiar—but still managed to picture out from the back of my head.
I continued to walk through. The silence of that street doesn’t change, but the lighting does. Dawn breaks. In the light, the street looked different—ordinary. Eventually, the vague beginnings of sunlight poured into the sky, and into that street. I looked around and everyone was just as tired as I am. Taking in what dimly-lit scenery we could to help stir some emotion and memory, but we are getting closer and closer to where the night began. I left that street and turn to look back at it, now smaller than it always seemed to be. It is no longer special, but something I would come back to in a few hours to pass on the way to school.
My journey that night goes like this. Some stops I barely take note of or consciously avoid remembering. Some, I wish had stayed longer. Like pictures flashing on a slideshow as I write this. There were so many of them. So many, that by the end of that journey, I am exhausted and ready to go home. I drifted in and out of consiousness on the way back to reality.
I didn’t know why I ended up on that rare and beautiful nocturnal journey, when I could be resting, as normality dictates. What I do know and very sure of is, whenever I rush to remember that night, I find that I wasn’t alone and that I felt more alive than ever. That, I think, is enough of a reason to look back at it with a smile.

All Too Well - Taylor Swift
This song reminds me of my recent visit in Manila. It’s not because I can relate it to an experience but it was the song I kept repeating when I was there. The song is basically a story from start to finish, there’s no repeating verses or choruses. The bridge part was really what got to me. I’ve never heard her sing with that much intensity. And the lyrics, Taylor is just so awesome writing lyrics. This song is brilliantly perfect! Below are my favorite lines. Take a listen ;)
And maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
´til you tore it all up
And you called me up again just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
Cause there we are again when I loved you so
Back before you lost the one real thing you’ve ever known
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

” I love everything about her and I’m not a guy who says that lightly. I’m a guy who has faked love his entire life. I thought love was just something idiots thought they felt but this woman has a hold on my heart that I could not break if I wanted to. And there have been times when I wanted to. It has been overwhelming and humbling and even painful at times. But I could not stop loving her any more than I could stop breathing. I am hopelessly and irretrievably in love with her. More than she knows. “
