Book Store

Remembering the time when we first met.
It was 11 in the evening, time stood still with no regret.
As I passed by the corner of that book store.
I looked at you from the outside as you walked out that door.

I was standing in front of you sweaty and all.
You handed out your hanky, oh geez, I think I'll fall.
Introduction to each other were made with no hesitations.
We strolled along all night as we stared at the constellations.

It was 4 in the morning, the dawn is breaking.
We decided to have coffee and a little more chatting.
Then later we found ourselves wrapped in each others arms.
As I whispered to your ear, I promise you no harm.

A kiss so passionate, igniting our senses like fire.
It was love at first sight so full of burning desire.
As we arouse each other with soft lingering touch.
I promised you that I'll always love you so much.

A month passed by, I've never felt so lucky.
Always together. We're both sublimely happy.
3 months, 4 months. Continuously counting.
5th month came, who knew it'd be our ending.

I don't know what happened, my brain just snapped.
You were begging for a chance, I said no, please don't do that.
I walked away leaving you at the coffee shop crying.
I never looked back, my tears were shedding.

A year and a half passed by, a lot has happened.
We advanced on our careers, surprisingly we started talkin'.
You invited me to your show, I came and I saw.
Part of your role, you kissed someone! I was in shock and in awe!

So jealous, envious, full of uncertainty.
I didn't want to be seen, a feeling so melancholy.
It was then I realized I wanted you back.
Wait, let me correct that. I need you. That's a fact!

The show ended, time to meet the cast.
I was standing by the door, you approached me so fast.
My heart was pounding, my legs were shaking.
We kissed on the cheeks and exchanged greetings.

I handed you a gift just like the one I gave before.
A small teddy bear that you oh so adore.
I had to leave as you had other guests to accommodate.
At the back of my mind, I was thinking that this can be fate.

The next day, I asked for you to come back.
You said no, I can't, and that's a fact.
You offered me friendship and that's the best you can do.
I've never felt so lonely, so sad and so blue.

And now I write this poem for you.
Oh please believe me, I'm now paying my due.
How I wish I could have what we've had before.
You're the only one who can heal my heart that's sore.

Now the battle against me just started.
Trying so hard not to feel discarded.
Now all i can do is what I've been doing before.
Remembering the day when I first saw you in that book store...
