Verses for a Starbuck’s Cup

March 5, 2008

AND as we sit here
on this bench
facing
a new morning,
a fresh rain,
a new day;
I couldn’t help
but take a glance
at this cup of frappe
between us…
and realize
that this frappe
is special;
for unlike
the usual cups
that we’ve shared
before,
this cup
now offers more
than its usual
caffeine booze and whipped cream

because this cup
BETWEEN us
not only separates us
on this seat:
it now also divides our hearts,
our thoughts,
our hopes,
and our tomorrows
knowing
all along
that this is the LAST CUP
that we will be sharing
together,

…as forbidden lovers,
and irrational dreamers…

so please be gentle
and take your time
as you take your FINAL sip,
for I intend to reminisce
this concluding moments
and draw your face,
your smile,
and your love
in my heart
where it cannot be erased
and where our love’s not forbidden….

SO as we sit here
on this bench
facing a new morning,
a fresh rain,
a new day;
I couldn’t help
but take a glance
at this cup of frappe
between us…
and realize
that we are also facing
a dusk
we’ve expected even from the start,
a gloomy rain
that used to be sweet for us,
and a new day of living

SEPARATELY….

and the greatest irony of them all
is that we WILL never even have the chance
to say
our GOODBYES…
