Unsettled Overcorrectness
‘I love him’
I tried it on
Wondering who
Would come to mind
At ‘him’

I settled on the thought of them
Collectively
Amounting to a whole
A couple of cherished
hims I could almost love
In the way I want to mean it
the way i’d  allow  myself to feel it

unlike the last time
oversettling 
lost the meaning 



Verse  09-22

A 4 day 2nd date


1 year later we’re on the
2nd day of our 2nd date
In Mexico
At 44s
Table 8
Cabin 2
At a wedding w/
Unplanned Matching Vows
“The world is your oyster”
She said
“You’re always down”


o
I would record
That I was 21
I just listened to a podcast
comparitive suffering so...
I would say I was lucky 
it was over 10 years ago now
And Mello is 10
I went to a funeral after the doctors appointment
A close friends brother had past
Truck accident
Noone but he knew
Why I was really crying



I’m
upset
That I’ve realized
I feel more than I can express
A limbo
Of
Knowing what I should
But could not do
Can barely admit
What I want with you
How I want you—
Every inch of
All of
You

Meminisse: In case I forget you


“Because one's memories aren't what actually happened - they're very subjective. You can always make it much better, right?” WKW

Often i struggle to grasp memories of you. I feel guilt in forgetting, it was a choice that I got really good at – until i chose to remember by then you’re faded and few. It feels like the way you recall a dream, you can’t trust how it occured in your mind while you slept and how it appears to you unexpectedly triggered by something that occured after, deja vive. Non sequential, fragmented, and against time.

Often i struggle to grasp

Yazz and yoint


glimpse

the swaying crowd

invisible
the spotlight
jounce audibly

glimmering fingers
dance with valves

ASMR bristles

crowd merging

I close my eyes
I listen
I tilt
I to you
Our lips dance slow
slow with yozz
slow with yazz

Verse forever Wip


Roberto


He is tall
He is red
He is black
            sheep

He is victim
He hit
Not me
My mother
I kicked

That night
A palm tree burn
mark
the fake tiled floor

The house burned
A home - “factory fire”

[Name]
Dead
I’m sorry

I want to remember better

He is
‘Boy’

He is good to his kids
At least they say
He is playful
Like me when I drink
Pink

Him
Excessive Red
Red at yellow star city
Off day from school
Hookie

He watched
Me almost fall of the peak
              of a pirate ship

I try to remember better

He is on the floor
Red asleep
He likes black horses
Three

I can’t recall

Only from stories told

Rare from her
bolted memories
unlocked when she’s pink

she said it hurts
Like that night
I tried
to kick him off of her
dazed into the mirror
She almost burned
We

forget

I choose what to remember
that’s better

Is it?

memories of him
are rare
fleeting
abstracted
unreal
a psychosis

Capsulated
Memories
       
     Mine




Verse - missing x more lines [songs]
 

playlist you made me - I collaged


Filming helicopters crashing
Don't let this fall
into the rust of your tongue
Can you feel it?
It's all too clear
a tide moves in
Made up my mind

Remixed:

Filming
helicopters
crashing
a tide moves in
Don't let this fall

Can you feel it?
into the rust of your tongue
It's all too clear
Made up my mind

i never did though
 




1. Kilig

Perhaps one of the most popular untranslatable word in the Filipino language is the word “kilig.” Even though most Filipinos would mix it with several English words to make the expression “kilig to the bones,” the word itself is widely accepted as standalone.

In English, it could mean trembling, though even that translation is not close. After all, “kilig” specifically refers to the excitement and feeling you get when you have the proverbial “butterflies in your stomach,” like when you see your crush or when your partner surprises you with a gift. It can also apply to certain situations, like watching a romantic movie, where viewers witness something exciting like the main stars holding hands or even kissing.

2. Gigil

The word “gigil” could be described as an intense urge to pinch or squeeze someone due to their cuteness. It can also be used to describe the urge to clobber or punch someone just because of how annoying they are. It’s basically a dual-purpose word designed for two different situations.

Müßiggang

German

104. Interestingly, the German word Müssiggang is produced by the conjunction between die Mußeleisure—and Gang, literally referring to the practice of "walking, passing,” and directly echoing the habit of the flaneur. Müssiggang stems from the same linguistic root as the word “duty”—das Müss—almost to suggest that idleness itself is generated from “duty"; or, alternatively, that it might be a praxis pregnant with necessity, regardless of whether the “idle labor" will eventually “give birth.”
