Writers block is a plague and I'm infected. Hi, I'm Araw. I'm seventeen and I call myself I writer.
Translations for the curious:
1. My love, look at your bird.
2. Do you see her? She sings for you.
3. She sings only for you. Won't you visit her?
4. Her heart is falling apart. Don't you ever think of that?
5. Won't you let me go?
I wanted to use Latin for the words, but I just didn't feel confident enough in my fluency to use it in a story. I instead chose to use Tagalog to make it a little easier on myself. Also, I thought it would be a fun allusion to Ibong Adarna, a classic Filipino epic about a bird with a magical song.
