Sheraly Espiritu (October 05,1987 / Eastern, Samar)
I do want to be a numb
so I can’t feel the pain am feeling inside
the pain blazing throughout my bones
the gloomy shadow of my soul.
Boisterous laughing and driving stupid jokes,
my friends see me as jolly as they thought,
they don’t know that behind those dazzling light,
tears flowing in the middle of the night.
