From Our Readers: What It's Like to Be the One That Got Away

Who hurts more: the one left behind or the one who left?

We all know how sincere Quest's latest song "Walang Hanggan" is, and how many can definitely relate to it. But this poem is a response to it, and it's from the point of view of someone who left and decided to let go.

Hindi lang naman ikaw na iniwan, ikaw na naiwan ang nasasaktan
Dahil kahit gaano kahirap, gaano katagal, pilit kong isinalba
Ipinaglaban, inuna ka kaysa sa sariling nararamdaman
Pero hindi mo alam, hindi mo alam, puso ko'y gulung-gulo na 

Saan nga ba ito patungo? 

Hinaharap ang bawat araw na ikaw pa rin ang pinipiling hagkan
Pero hanggang kailan kakapit, iisiping mainit pa ang lahat
Nagnanais na makawala, gusto ko nang lumisan
Hindi mo alam, hindi mo alam, nakikiusap na, palayain mo na ang buhat kong mabigat 

Ilang taon ang pinagsamahan, kay daming unos na nalampasan
Mga gabing ikaw ang aking katabi hanggang sa mga mata'y mamulat
Ako ay mawawala na, may natitira pa bang paraan
Ang sabi mo'y ginawa mo ang lahat, ngunit ginagawa ko rin ang lahat

Hindi na yata kaya pang maibalik

Hanggang kailan titiisin ng paulit-ulit
Papaniwalain pa bang kaya pa kitang mahalin
Sa mga alaalang iyong ginuhit at mga segundong sa puso mo'y inukit,
Pasensya na, hindi ko nais ika'y paasahin

Kaya hanggat maaga pa, ihihinto na, hindi man maganda ang sasabihin ng iba
Tayo'y sumusulyap na sa dulo 

Nasaktan ka, akala mo'y ikaw ang may kasalanan
Pero maniwala ka kapag sinabi kong wala
Baka tadhana nga'y nawawalan na ng gana, nagsasabing dapat nang bitawan

Walang rason sa panlalamig, walang nang-aakit,
Walang sagot sa mga bakit, kaya sana, ako'y iyong patawarin
 

Hindi magiging sapat sa lahat ng pagkakataon
Hindi lahat ng plano ay may kasiguraduhan
Hindi lahat ng bukas ay may tayong dalawa na naroon
Hindi lahat ng pangako ay kayang panindigan 

Ako'y mawawala na
Tadhana'y tuluyan na ngang nawalan ng gana 

Kaya kahit gaano kaganda ang naging simula
Sana nalaman mo noong una pa lang
Hindi magkakaroon ng simula
Na walang posibilidad ng katapusan 

Sana ay matanggap mo
Sa gitna ng sakit na gumuguhit, sa luhang pumupunit
Na hindi na ako lilingon, kahit ang anino
Huwag ka nang makiusap sa hangin, huwag nang manalangin sa langit

Ang buong akala ay walang hanggan
Pero nandito na tayo sa dulo, sa dulo
Ako'y tatalikod na, at dapat mo na akong kalimutan
Kailangan na kitang iwan, kahit hindi ito ang ating ginusto 

Paalam.

Think about it. What if the person you once loved really tried to fight for your relationship, but he is not happy anymore. Not because he found it in someone else, but simply because it is just not the same anymore. No reasons why. We all say how love should not be based merely on feelings, but it is a choice you make every day. However, you don't know how hard he tried to choose you, to pretend everything is okay.

Until when will you let him fool himself? What do you like more: believing that person stayed because he still sees a future with you or allowing him to let go of the relationship because he knows you don't deserve a half-hearted kind of love?

Sometimes, we need to credit the ones that got away because they chose to do the right thing.

Sometimes, we need to credit the ones that got away because they chose to do the right thing. Instead of cheating, of making the relationship worse, they chose to end it. Even if it means to be frowned upon by the world, to be cursed by the other party, they did the bravest decision they can ever do just to save the both of you and the genuine memories still left in your relationship.

Sometimes things will not work out the way you or others expected it to be, but you need to accept that. Because once you get past the sorrow and heartaches, you will discover love again; maybe love for yourself, love for something new, or love for someone else. You will then realize everything that happened led to the good of the both of you. Now, you will not experience how blessed you are in the arms of someone else or with your new found epiphanies in life, if not for the relationship that once ruined a part of you.
