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, 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.
