Bliss of Yesterday By: Jona Mae Jacome

in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. however, life is no fun without pain.

is it possible to felt hatred and longing at the same time? Hatred for all the heartbreaking and frustrating circumstances but longing for the bliss and odd bonding and chitchats of yesterday.

I don’t know what comes on my mind writing this blog, perhaps, I can’t still believe for all the changes in our friendship now. Where does sweet companionship go? Joy fades memories and excitements gone. Can’t you feel it? Can’t see it? We are falling apart and it crushed my heart. I started to wonder why things need to change; why things need to complicate everything; why we have to encountered things like these—stupid questions remain queries.

I still remember those blissful days; we used to go together—no doubts, no alibis, and no hesitations. We used to share frivolous and endless rants and depressing stories in our lives. But, look at us now, we never talk and laugh the way we used too. Yes! We still go together but not as fun as before, not emotionally and mentally present. It feels like yesterday we were so unbroken and happy but sadly, wind blew them away. People seem to wonder if we are not together and assumed that we were always be together in all the activities given by group. We were always like domino; whatever might happen to one of us, soon to experience by the rest of the group. We used to laugh and wonder for those coincidences. How does it happen to us? Possibly, we destined to be sisters by soul.

If I could only go back to those blissful moments of yesterday, however, it also truly make me happy for those blissful moments turn into memories—wonderful memories indeed.

To Love and Be Loved By: Jona Mae Jacome

Who would dream to be in one-sided love? Who would like to be in  bait of love triangle? All of us dream to love and be loved. How much more if that love is a true love? have you ever fall in love?

To love and be loved is the most magical feeling in this world. The feeling that all of us longing of; the feeling I used to felt or I should say, a once in a lifetime feeling during my teenage years.

Have you ever felt euphoria even just he’s at your side? that even just a simple smile and gestures can make you completely happy? How much more for his undefined love and care every day? I know you know that kind of feeling.

We were both young, innocent and naive when we enter the world of relationship and felt the little thing they called love. We are just carefree from the things that we feel and see, but now, everything’s has changed

Love is undefined like my love for this man, for who would have thought that the spontaneous infatuation and care turns to a great love. I was the happiest woman alive I believed, but everything is falling apart. maybe, this is just a pleasure of all first. You know, first base and second base.that eventually it will vanished just like a blink of an eye.

we used to dream about future and perhaps, that’s the saddest part of being in a relationship, we used to predict things that might be nor might not happen. why is so hard to be loved back by the person you love, why is so hard to love the person who loved you.
