Bakit ka Breathtaking?

Bakit ka breathtaking?
Tuwing makikita, tangina, tantalizing!
Nasisilaw ako at ang pakiramdam ay numbing
Dinadaga ang dibdib sa sobra mong dazzling.

Di kumpleto ang araw, laging merong lacking
Pag ‘di ka nakita dahil ikaw ay missing
Hinahanap-hanap, parang mangangasong nagha-hunting
Masilat ka lang ng saglit kahit ito ay stealing.

Oo na! Nabighani na! Sa pagmumukha mong captivating
Di makapaniwala sa ganda mo kahit seeing is believing.
Nagcha-cha-cha ang tyan sa chuwing ika’y magpapa-charming
Pesteng buhay ‘to lagi na lang hanggang daydreaming.

So why is it–why are you so kamangha-mangha?
My jaw drops to the floor, in other words, napapanganga.
My eyes, lumuluwa
My heart, pumapalya
My lungs stop pumping air, it’s impossible to hinga.

I just can’t believe how your skin is so ganda
You probably shower well, not just with a single timba.
I always feel stupid, so hopelessly tanga
When I walk up to you and try to make my diga.

It’s just a crush, I know, a simple paghanga.
But goddamn! I’m writing a poem tonight, napapatula.
It’s all your freakin’ fault, your pagkakasala
That you’re the girl that you are, excessively pinagpala.

Kaya sagutin mo ako dahil ako’y inquiring.
Anong pakiramdam ito? Anong klaseng feeling?
Wala namang pag-asa pero eto pa rin hoping
Malay mo maka-jackpot at ako naman ang winning.

‘Til then I’ll wait, very matyaga
‘Cause I’ve got nothing better to do, nothing to gawa.
Keep on scratching my head, removing my lisa
And ask it one more time

Like a crazy praning,

Why are you so kamangha-mangha?
Bakit ka breathtaking?
