Upon entering the cafe, the scent of brewed coffee resonates the whole place;
Looking at the dessert area—-like it’s calling out for me to try to taste.
I ordered the “YOLO Cream” paired with some Darjeeling tea;
A mix of sweet decadence and bitterness fills me with such glee.
But somehow that sliver of happiness has eventually died down;
All alone, with an empty seat on front, loneliness cascaded over for me to drown.
My mind goes back to you——
When we were still young and naive;
Precious gifts from you were all I received.
In love, at first, I didn’t even believe;
But with you, ...you are all I ever see.
I was inspired to write this as I was sitting all by myself at The Bean Connect, a local cafe here in Dumguete city.
I remembered a time of all the moments we shared;
The lingering thoughts of you are all I ever care.
I felt like a stranger to this building- up emotion
Later I've realized that only you can set my heart in motion.
I almost denied this feeling, by ignoring and avoiding you;
I thought that I was the only one who felt this way and not you.
But my dear, there's one thing I want you to know
My actions speak for you, it's not just for a show;
I learned that love is not just a word----
Love is my dear, an action word.
I have seen you in my dreams and in my memories; the memories, beautiful memories, that kept my heart heavy.
But now, it haunts me, knowing that you are reliving those memories again,...but not with me. It hurts deeply like a knife that has sliced through a wounded heart.
I now walk on this pavement. The last place I felt alive...and the same place I died inside.
You, walking with someone else, reliving the memory; while I looked at you from a distance. These memories reminded me of how it all used to be;
But people change right?
Dear, you were my everything I could ever imagine but you took it away and gave the spot to someone new.
I guess I'll see you tomorrow,....in my dreams.
Before you left, you gave a piece of your heart to me;
I don't know when you'll be back—-
so I'll just wait and see.
For years I had hoped; hoping to be in your arms, again, someday.
I declined many suitors, who are standing in my way.
It was only you------
you, you, you
I had in mind;
But distance has
and in fact
our feelings have
The way your eyes looked at me,
like an astronomer lost in the galaxies;
yearning to be with each other,
like a pirate sailing through the seven seas
I was sailing in
my own storm
but now, I am
my lake of
for You have given
You saved me,
when I've fallen
You gave me
when I was
