Romantic Amnesia Anecdotes

I am writing this down a bit sleepy, troubled with sniffles again and fresh from work. And talk about work, I just got a sudden flashback of this conversation I had with someone over coffee at three in the morning just when everyone was in a deep slumber. In that talk that revolved around poetry, forgetting, romance and the author Pablo Neruda, this person suddenly asked me this:

"Sa tingin mo ba, ang puso pwede ring magka-amnesia?"

Now, it took me some minutes to ponder about it and think of a scientific answer. But then, at the end of it, probably, I realized, there are things that are simply outside the limits of logic. Including this one. It took me quite a while and I just found myself looking at this person directly as I said this:

"Sa tingin ko hindi. Kasi, ginawa mang mataas ang utak sa puso, may mga bagay na kapag nakalimutan ng isip mo, magagawang ipaalala sa 'yo ng puso mo."

It filled me with an amount of inexplicable joy knowing that I, at one point, was able to reason out that way. At the same time, it makes me cringe too. For I never thought, I could be that unbelievably mushy.

Anyway, I'm off to bed now to rest -- just as the wonderful office nurse advised. I hope you'll all have a wonderful morning.
