    Stop and Start

    I’ll stop messaging you
    Coz you’re already ignoring me

    I’ll stop checking up on you
    Coz you’re distancing yourself from me

    I’ll stop calling you
    Coz you refuse to answer anyway

    I’ll stop loving you
    Coz you didn’t really feel the same way.

    I’ll start moving on
    Coz it’s what I should do

    I’ll start healing now
    Coz my heart is broken into two

    I’ll start putting myself together again
    Coz my world stopped when I met you

    I’ll start loving myself more
    Coz I can’t expect anyone else to

  • I Choose to Leave by Pen of Isha
    Poetry

    I Choose to Leave

    I choose to leave and let go.
    Not because I don’t love you anymore.
    It’s because I need to love my self too.
    The love I lost because of loving you.

    I expected too much of you.
    I assumed too much,
    I hope too much too
    And loved you too much.

    There’s a choice between
    leaving and staying.
    But staying will only cause pain.
    So I choose to leave.

    I will miss all the sweetness we had.
    The sweet talks,
    The laughter that we shared.
    And all of your sweet songs for me.

    Our relationship became more painful for me to bear.
    A love without sentiments.
    A love that was taken for granted.

    And someday I will move on.
    And If I see you again.
    I will look into your eyes without regrets and pain.

    And tell you with a lot of courage,
    I did love you so pure with all of my heart.
    But you let me slip away.

  • Minsan by Nickle Love
    Poetry

    Minsan

    Minsan na akong nahulog
    Sa mga tingin at ngiting nakakabulabog
    Matatamis na salitang nambibilog
    Ngunit sa huli puso ko ang nabugbog.

    Minsan na akong nagmahal
    Binuksan ang puso at sumugal
    Nag baka sakaling totoo ang pagmamahal
    Ng isang lalaking hindi man lang nagtagal.

    Minsan na akong nasaktan
    Nung marinig ang kanyang mga kasinungalingan
    Kahit nahuli na ng harap-harapan
    Patuloy syang nag mamaang-maangan.

    Minsan na akong nasawi
    Sa mga salitang nagpaasa pero binawi
    Ang pagtitinginang hindi maikubli
    Sa pag-iwas lang din nauwi.

    Paglipas

    Segundo, minuto, oras, araw. Gaano katagal na naman kaya bago lumipas,
    Lumipas yung sakit na nadarama ng puso kong pagod na.

    Lilipas pa ba? Hanggang kelan kaya? Hanggang kelan masasaktan sa taong hindi naman marunong lumaban, sa tao na hanggang “mahalaga ka” at “mahal kita” ang kaya lang bitawan.

    Bawat salita na nang galing sa bibig mo pinaniwalaan ko, mahal kita eh! Mali ko lang akala ko mahal mo din ako kasi sabi mo ako lang walang iba, pero nalingat lang ako may kausap ka na palang iba.

    Okay lang masaya naman na ako. Masaya nga ba? Oo masaya ako, maaring hindi sa ngayon pero pangako sasaya din ako.

  • Natawa Na Lang Ako by Nickle Love
    Poetry

    Natawa Na Lang Ako

    Natawa na lang ako sa nalaman ko.
    Dati akala ko dumalawa lang kami sayo,
    Yun pala meron pang pangatlo.
    Napaisip tuloy ako,
    Baka hindi lang kami ang tinalo mo,
    Hindi naman ako nagkamali sa pagtanto
    kasi pati may nobyo na diniskartehan mo.

    Natawa na lang ako nung nalaman ko,
    Pinaniwalang ako lang ang napupusuan mo
    Pero makalipas ang ilang araw napansin ko,
    May bago nang nagpapasaya sayo.
    Oo nasaktan ako, pero anong magagawa ko?
    Hindi nga naman opisyal, wala namang tayo.
    Kaya eto na lang, tatawa na lang ako.

    Natawa na lang ako sa na-realize ko,
    Parang lahat ng nangyari ay laro lang sa iyo.
    Diskarte sa mga babae ay pare-pareho,
    Inakala na ang pagsuyo ay totoo,
    Pinaniwalang pagtingin mo ay seryoso.
    Sa kabila ng lahat hanggang dito na lang ako,
    Walang ibang magagawa kundi matawa sa kalokohan mo.

  • TS4 DOLL HOUSE

    Adorable The Sims 4 Dollhouses

    There’s a new trend in the Sims community thanks to Tumblr user Smart Milk. They were inspired by isometric pixel art of rooms by JMW327.
    The trend, called “TS4 Dollhouses” is reminiscent of miniature dollhouse kits that are quite popular among crafters and miniature hobbyists.

    Recently, my YouTube and Tumblr feeds have been full of other people’s creations. They are quite impressive.
    Here’s a video made by Elliandra, a Sims YouTuber:

    Naturally, I wanted to participate. Here’s my take on TS4 Dollhouse trend:

    Beannie’s TS4 Dollhouse

    I went for a pink, girly loft kind of house. Instead of doing one room, like most people do, I decided to go for a whole house. I kept it simple and tried not to put too much decorations or clutter inside the house. I think I did a pretty good job!

    The Sims community is full of talented and creative people. It’s so much fun watching videos and looking at pictures of their creations. It’s amazing how a video game franchise could bring so much joy to people.

  • Wala Nang Mensahe by Pen of Isha
    Poetry

    Wala Nang Mensahe

    Paulit ulit kang tumitingin sa cellphone mo,
    nag aantay, nagbabaka sakali na nag message na siya.
    Inaantay mga mensahe na alam mong di naman na dadating.

    Wala nang mensahe na magpapaganda ng araw mo,
    naglaho na.
    Wala nang mensahe na magpapakilig sayo,
    kase wala naman siyang pakialam.

    Nagagawa niyang mag message sa iba,
    pero sayo hindi na,
    dahil di ka naman talaga mahalaga kagaya ng sinabi niya.

    Naglaho na ang mga mensahe na bumubuo sa araw mo at nagapapakilig sayo.
    Naglaho na, kasabay ng pag gising mo sa katotohanan na ikaw lang pala.
    Ikaw lang pala ang gustong makausap at makachat siya.

  • Tanga by K
    Poetry

    Tanga

    Hindi ko alam kung pano ko sisimulan.
    Sisimulan yung bagay na tinapos mo na nga pala

    Naisip ko baka naman kasi mali ko,
    baka may kulang, baka ganito, baka ganun,
    baka sakaling maayos ko pa.

    Sa lahat ng baka sakali nagmukha akong tanga,
    ay hindi lang pala nag mukhang tanga
    kasi sa sobrang pagkabulag ko,
    naging tanga na nga talaga.

    Pinagtanggol kita kasi akala ko mali sila,
    mali sila na mahal mo naman ako talaga.
    Diba magsasama tayo, yan ang iyong pangako,
    pero eto ngayon daig mo pa napako,
    napako sa kasinungalingang hindi mo maipagtapat
    dahil hindi ka nga pala tapat.

    Oo tanga ako, tanga ako na nagmahal sayo,
    pero eto lang masasabi ko…
    “ako yung tanga na hahabulin mo”.

  • Balakid by Nickle Love
    Poetry

    Balakid.

    Balakid.
    Salitang pag binaliktad mo baka maiyak ka,
    Maalala mo yung panahong sinabi nyang “gusto kita”
    Yung araw na naisip mong sana,
    Sana ito na. Sana sya na. Sana totoo na.

    Sinanay ka nya sa araw-araw, gabi-gabi,
    Pinaramdam nya na ikaw ang kanyang minimithi,
    Pinakilig ka ng kanyang mga ngiti,
    Inawitan pa ang puso mong kinikiliti.

    Pero teka, makalipas lang ang ilang linggo,
    Parang, parang biglang may nagbago.
    Pagtingin nya sayo ay nag-iba, naglaho,
    Kung kailan nahuhulog na ang iyong puso.

    Wala ka nang magawa kundi magtaka,
    Mapaisip kung mayroon ka bang nagawang hindi tama?
    May nasabi ka bang hindi maganda?
    Para pag trato nya sayo ay biglang mag iba?

    Isang araw nalaman mo na lang may bago na pala sya,
    May iba nang nagpapasaya sa kanya,
    Ibang babae na ang kanyang hinaharana,
    Pero gamit ang mga kantang minsan ay sayo ikinanta.

    Bakit nga ba ganito ang tadhana,
    Kung kailan nagbakasali saka pa pinaasa,
    Isang malaking balakid ang hindi inaasahan,
    Salitang pag binaliktad ang syang tunay na dahilan.

    Di ka lab. 💔

  • Tumblr NSFW Ban

    Tumblr NSFW Ban

    In the later part of November 2018, Apple got rid of the Tumblr app from their store because of the existence of child porn material. This action immediately had a big impact on the platform, which quickly declared that it will prohibit all NSFW content by December 17, 2018.

    This sudden decision was quite a shock for Tumblr’s users, all of whom had become familiar with the freedom of posting sexually explicit content on the platform.

    Loads of several fandoms and communities are suffering from the effects of this content restriction. For one, Tumblr’s algorithm is flagging non-NSFW posts such as innocent art. Then there are some individuals saying that Tumblr is also removing the feature of custom themes, which is a huge deal for almost all of the Tumblr members who make use of the platform as a way to express their creativity, be it in their content or in the very theme/layout of their blogs.

    Artists who used to post their art on Tumblr are now switching to other platforms. I’ve personally talked to a couple of artists who wanted to move their original character art to Toyhouse because of Tumblr’s apparent self-destruction.

    Although sad, it’s what Tumblr thinks is the right thing to do and all we can do right now is either to bear with it and continue using the platform or to move on to other services.
