Sweet nothings

I found the one (you),
and I will never give up..
I know it's cheesy, but what can I do,
I'm crazily, stupidly, in love with you.

(I got inspired by the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love. Good film, poison to hopeless romantics out there :D)

The Poet in Me Died: A repost

One of the dark times of Mr. Brightside.

I wrote this poem back in 2007, right after my first boyfriend (we were together for 1 year and 4 months) told me he cheated on me and eventually broke up with me. Jerk. I've forgiven him, but still, he messed me up and picking up the pieces of my broken self was not easy (after all, it was my first heart break).

Anyway, I just want to share this poem.

The Poet in Me Died
by Mr. Brightside

Words don’t make sense anymore,
The waves depart farther from the shore.
Emotions that were once all mine,
Decided to bury itself in time.

Promises now become lies,
Forever becomes a vague picture.
Tears start flowing from my eyes,
The truth now becomes torture.

Words now cease to rhyme,
Songs start to lose its meaning.
The light you once found in me refuses to shine,
I am now void of all feelings.

The heart now numbs and becomes sober,
Denying that thoughts of you still linger.
The questions still remain unanswered,
Nothings real until you realize it’s all over.

I crash and burn
Tired to hope and yearn
The heart and mind collide
The poet in me died.

Statement of Christopher Lao

I know Chris Lao personally, and he is one of the most mature and intelligent persons I know. I think the treatment he is getting is unfair and the issue blown out of proportions.

In line with the internet bashing going on, below is a statement from Chris.

4 August 2011

The past few days have been very disheartening for me and my family. As you know I have been a subject of a viral video that showed my helplessness during a trying moment. As it stands right now, I have several hate pages in Facebook and Twitter with hurtful and derogatory messages attacking my person. The reputation that I built the past years has been besmirched. A bad day has now turned into wounded feelings and sleepless nights for me and my family.

I have been silent the past few days as I want this to go away soon but not before saying sorry and thank you to people who matter.

I would like to apologize for my behavior that was seen on nationwide television and now on the internet. It was unfortunate that I was caught on camera immediately after an overwhelmingly stressful mishap.

I would like to again sincerely thank those who braved the flood to help a distraught stranger like me. Their selfless act reminded me of how dependable Filipinos are in times of crisis.

Lastly, I would like to thank my family, friends and all of those who showed empathy, consideration and support throughout these trying times. You have given me strength and courage to rise above and be a better person.

Sincerely yours,

Christopher Lao
