Last Tuesday, our country faced one of our most challenging times this year when Marawi City, Lanao del Sur was attacked by Maute group, who are known to be sympathizers of international terrorist group ISIS. News websites have published the sides of the government forces and personal accounts from our fellow Filipinos who are trapped in the city while chaos and violence ensued.

Read more about it here:

It's been a difficult time, especially for the people of Marawi who are caught in this violent exchange between government forces and the militant group. But aside from keeping them in our prayers, we can help, too.

Various organizations need all the help they can get for our fellow Filipinos, Candy Girls. So if you can, please do allot some time to find the organization nearest you and offer your help.

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
