Uuwi nga ako...

Sometimes your breath is pulled out your chest so suddenly that your eyes widen, wet and heavy with the warning of tears.

But it's inexcusable.
My family is not into hugging and kissing, no Thank You's, no Sorry's, and definitely no I love you's.

But then even this pattern of coldness cannot free me from finding my insides spinning madly, as I fail, yet again, to convince him to come home, and he leaves, as always, with an embarrassed smile and a murmur of words which sounds like, "Oo, uuwi nga ako."
