For Arnel






LOVE
may sound ordinary
and elementary
to others maybe;
but not for me.
Although the word
seems so common,
but when we seek
in our hearts,
we have to delve deeper,
to know both the virtue
and undertaking truly mean.







A very powerful word
we share in common,
in its name we are born;
in its sake we are raised;
and only in its glory,
we are remembered best. 







I cry and anguish,
when lovers fall weak;
when they let fear,
anger,
envy,
jealousy,
prejudice,
ambitions,
differences,
doubts,
insecurities,
tragedies,
catastrophes,
tribulations,
calamities,
downfalls
and defeats–
kill love
and tear them apart.
Coz no matter,
how hard our relationships fall apart;
no matter,
how bitter the ending can be,
it remains
in our hearts–
as it exist
even long before
we are brought
to earth.
That just
as the Holy Book says,
“LOVE NEVER FAILS?”
Why can’t we take
His words?







Truth is,
even the meanest felons,
and ruthless criminals–
they too fall in love.
Unfortunately,
fate is often unfair.
It treats us unevenly,
maybe just as how
we treat love
so differently.







Weakened by evils
in all faces of adversities;
we often surrender to fate
and retreat to destiny.
Inflicted by evils of fear,
we mercy kill
our loves within.
So we leave love unattended,
deserted,
doubted,
mocked
and taken for granted–
when it’s the very essence
of life.







But even if
fate is so cruel,
I tell you,
love never goes away.
Once it touches our hearts,
it is there to stay!







Amidst the absence of recourse;
notwithstanding the distance,
and against all odds,
love remains.
It may move a little,
or might not be
in our very core
as it is challenged
or threatened
at some point–
but it is there–
always there.







More powerful
than the blood
flowing in our veins,
Love–
in defiance of fate–
remains!







Hence,
it has the power
to make us whole,
or bury us alive
in the deepest hole.
But if we hang on to it,
no matter, how rough
the challenges can be;
regardless, how tough
its ironies may seem,
faith will walk us through
the glorious bridge of happiness.
And all we have to do,
is just to hang on.







Because
it is never about falling.
Love survives
and thrives
only by holding on.
How I know?
Please.
Please,
please, please believe me,
I am going through it all.









Happy Valentines WordPress!
Thanks for bearing with me–
I love you all!








PS
He’s not the enemy. God bless the enemy.
