What is the sound of one heart breaking?

What is the sound of one heart breaking?



The sound of One Heart Breaking.
by Margaux_Sofya


Ever come across this zen koan that JD Salinger used in one of his books? You know, the one that asks what is the sound of one hand clapping. I don't know the answer to that one. But ask me what's the sound of one heart breaking and I might have an answer.

Welcome to the dark side of love. What is the sound of one heart breaking? It is the sound of someone curled up in a tiny ball crying softly in the night, the sound of the first unwanted teardrop touching your skin, it's the sound of a telephone that doesn't ring, the sound of regret pounding inside your brain with every heartbeat, it's the whispers of the toy animals he gave you. It's the shuffling of feet walking away from you, the sound of your soul shattering into a million pieces at recognizing the word "goodbye," it's the soundtrack of memories torturing you, it's the sound of feeble hands trying to push back the obstinate hands of time, it's the sound of a cherub's dying breath, the sound of all those years disappearing in the vortex of Cupid's kitchen sink.

It's the unrelenting, plaintive baby meows of an abandoned kitten outside an ignoring door. It's the sound of the rain that doesn't ever stop, the sound of all the doors in the world shutting and closing in your face at the same time, of raging, howling storms in the night when there's no one there to hold you, the sound of your voice as it screams back at you, the echo of "I love you" burning holes in you, the sound your heart makes as it tells you to lie still because nothing you will ever do will matter without love.

The sound of the waves at the polluted beach you went to as it moves from the shore and crashes inside your mind, of the sniffles that make up your pathetic "SOS-to-the-world," the cracking of the brittle black-red petals from the sidewalk vendor roses he gave, the sound of the music he used to make going to your gut. The sound of things in your room being thrown around and landing on the floor, the caress of sharpened kitchen knives on skin, the sound your throat makes as you swallow your saltiest tear. It's the sound of your own voice calling out to someone who isn't there, of winged creatures dying and falling on a city pavement, of terms of endearment used a hundred times a day struggling to crawl into a vacuum of forgetfulness, it's the sound of your own sobs keeping you company, it's the cold, uncaring stillness of the air you share your space with. Destruction isn't always as noisy as bombs exploding.

Sometimes the ultimate catastrophes are as quiet as feather falling on the floor of a Zen monastery. No one else can really hear your heart breaking except you.



This was written by my friend margaux_sofya. Missed her so much. Especially when my heart is breaking.

IMPAIRED

Yesterday was different.

We had our annual Toyota Supplier's Club Outreach program. Yesterday, recipents for the program were disabled and mentally retarded children of Sta. Rosa.

I arrived on time at the venue. Much to my usual dismay, TSC secretariat was late. Osoi desu ne. Sigh. I was happy to get in touch again with my co-committee members. We all have our own share of sentiments with the group, but never the less, we still enjoy working together though most of the times our patience is slowly deterioting to its lowest point. haha. i miss the group. even misses them at the thought that i won't be able to join them in the christmas party that night. I need to see my Autocad class..otherwise, im doomed again.

**************

Mainit ang katanghalian. Nanunuot sa bubong at dingding ng kapaligiran ang sikat ng araw. Pero panlalamig mula sa kalooban ang nararamdaman ko.

Nakatambad sa aking paningin ang grupo ng mga batang may kapansanan: bulag, pipi, may karamdaman sa pag iisip, pilay at iba pa. Sandaling tumigil ang mundo ko. Napaisip. Naglakbay diwa. Hanggang sa naramdaman ko ang pagdurugo ng aking puso.

Makailang beses ba akong
nagtampo sa mundo? Sa dami ng mga problemang pinapasan ko sa balikat, ilang beses ko na sinubukan na huwag na lamang huminga, huwag imulat ang mga mata, huwag tumayo sa kinahihigaan? Lampas isang libo't isa o mahigit pa. Hindi ko na mabilang. Kung minsan, mga simpleng problema lamang ang ikinagugupo ng aking katatagan. Mga bagay na walang kwenta kung iisipin. Problema sa kasama sa trabaho, problema sa pag ibig, problema sa mga bagay na gusto mabili, problema sa iskedyul ng gimik. Marami- rami na ding mga problema ang dumaan sa buhay ko na hindi ko naman dapat umubos ng lakas ko, ngunit hinayaan ko. Kung kaya nung dumating ang mga totoong dagok sa buhay ko, kaunting lakas na lamang ang natitira upang makalaban ako.

Gusto kong humugot ng lakas sa mga nasaksihan ko kahapon. Mga batang may kapansanan, sa kabila ng kanilang pagkaparalisa, pinipilit makisayaw sa indayog ng buhay.
Hinandugan kami ng mga batang ito ng mumunting palabas. Kumbaga, "showcase ng talents" nila. Nakatutuwang isipin na sa kabila ng kahirapan na kanilang dinaranas, nandun pa rin ang kagustuhan maging "in". Sa bawat kembot ng mga bata sa entablado, ay may yugyog ng mga tanong na umuusbong sa aking pagkatao.

"Pano kung hindi ako ito?"

"Pano kung katulad rin nila ako?"

At madami pang iba.

Nasaan na nga ba ako? Pakiramdam ko, naliligaw ako sa aking pagkatao. Sa mga simpleng tugtog lang, masaya na ang mga batang ito. Pero bakit ako, hindi ko mahanap ang kaligayahan ko? Damn. Napalingon ako sa likod, at dun ko din namataan ang pagpatak ng luha ng kasama ko. NIlapitan ko sya, nagtinginan, at sabay kaming napangiti. Dun ko lang naramdaman na may mga luha na rin palang nangingilid sa aking mga mata.

Masuwerte ang mga batang ito. Hindi nila ramdam ang pagbaba ng piso, pagtaas ng pamasahe, ang kaguluhan sa gobyerno. Ang nararamdaman nila..ung pagmamahal ng mga taong kumakalinga sa kanila. Mga taong nagsisikap na mabuhay sila ng tulad ng nakararami. Mga taong naglalaan ng oras, pagod, hirap para matugunan ang ikinakabig ng mga puso nila: ang tumulong sa kapwa.

Isang mag ama ang nakatawag ng aking pansin. Bulag ang bata. Kitang-kita ko ang kalinga ng ama sa kanyang iyak. Bitbit ang bag na kumpleto sa mga pangunahing pangangailangan ng bata: pagkain, tubig, panyo at kung anu-ano pa. Napakaswerteng bata. Isang ubo lang, hahagudin na agad ng ama ang likod ng anak. Kelan ko ba huling naramdaman ang paghagod ng kamay ng tatay ko sa likod ko? Hindi ko na matandaan. Maaring matagal na. O maaring wala talagang naganap.

May kinausap din ako na batang babae. Isang bulag din. Walong taong gulang. Maamo ang kanyang mukha. Umupo ako sa kanyang tabi. Agad niyang inilapat ang kanyang kamay sa aking binti..sabay sabi "hello ate." Kamay lamang ang dumampi sa aking binti..pero parang isang kurot sa puso ang naramdaman ko. Sa aming pag uusap, napag alaman ko na malapit lamang ang kanyang tahanan sa sikat na sikat na Enchanted Kingdom. Napuntahan na daw nya ito, noong sya ay limang taon gulang at nakakakita pa. Nagulat ako. Hindi makapagsalita. Niyakap ko na lang ung bata. Gaano kasakit ang isang umaga na hindi mo na makikita ang mga bagay sa iyong paligid. Nakalulungkot isipin na sa maghapon, ang dating punung puno ng kulay na paningin ay isang itim na kambas na lamang na pang habang buhay. Naisip ko tuloy ung mga sandali sa buhay ko, na ninais kong huwag masilayan ang mga tao at bagay na nakapagdudulot ng inis at galit sa akin. Mga nakapikit na sandali ng buhay ko, dahil may takot akong harapin at silipin ang pait at hapdi ng mga pagkakataon.

Sinong nagnanais na maging bulag sa mga hamon ng mundo? Habang ang mga ibang tao ay lubos ang pagnanais na masilayan ang ganda ng buhay.

Masuwerte nga ba tayo? Sa normal na ating pag aakala? O baka tayo ang totoong may kapansanan sa ating pagkatao?

YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL


YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL
by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

When I see your smile
Tears run down my face I can't replace
And now that I'm strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul
And I know I'll find deep inside me I can be the one
I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
It's ok. It's ok. It's ok.
Seasons are changing
And waves are crashing
And stars are falling all for us
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
I can show you I'll be the one
I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
Cuz you're my, you're my, my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
Cuz I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and,
Please tell me you'll stay, woah stay woah
Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be ok
Though my skies are turning gray
I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
