Palagi akong nananaginip
At pag-gising ko
p̶a̶r̶a̶ ̶a̶k̶o̶n̶g̶ ̶n̶a̶g̶l̶u̶l̶u̶k̶s̶a̶ ̶s̶a̶ ̶p̶a̶g̶m̶a̶m̶a̶h̶a̶l̶ ̶n̶a̶ ̶d̶i̶ ̶k̶o̶ ̶p̶a̶ ̶n̶a̶m̶a̶n̶ ̶n̶a̶h̶a̶n̶a̶p̶
ako ay nagluluksa sa pagmamahal na matagal ko nang nahanap
May nalimutan yata ako
May naiwan sa daan
May biglang p̶a̶g̶-̶g̶a̶a̶n̶ pag-bigat ng mga balikat ko at hindi ko maintindihan
At sa sobrang g̶a̶a̶n̶ bigat
This dark humor work of art is rooted from the masterpiece that was the music video of Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay by Ben & Ben. It has a spoken word by Juan Miguel Severo, as an intro. The direction by Jorel Lising and screenplay by JMS, add to the audience’s consumption experience.
You can better appreciate this by watching Shutter, a 2004 Thai horror film, which is considered a cult classic. Pictures are from the movie.
How far can one’s true love go?
Pangako mo nung una
‘Di talaga inasahan
Ikaw pa rin
Ang pipiliin kong mahalin
Kahit ako’y sumakabilang-buhay
Hihintayin kita sa susunod na habang buhay

There are many ways to present your art. And sometimes, it’s coming from an existing creation already…but you try to add value to it. And you transform it to something new. (But of course, proper citation for the inspiration is important).
