Coffee at the Pepper Lunch
By: Maria Elena P. Bitare
In my dreams I sat at the front door open
Then I saw a boy came in at eleven
He pulled my hips close to his
Then he kissed my lips upon his bliss
That morning, I woke up with a smile
Knowing that he’ll drove from a mile
A knock at my door, I ought to see
The kind of man that I wanted to marry
He pulled me close and kissed my eyes
There I ought to see how fast time flies
I looked at his face and saw my dream
He’s the man in my dream, in his eyes, I have seen.
Who wouldn’t be upset? Just when I don’t have a pen and paper beside me, that’s when my mind reaches the sky, those are the moments when I’m about to sleep, when I’m walking slow in a fast phased crowded place, when I’m riding a jeepney, and the strangest is while I’m taking a shower.
For some of the instances, I could find a way to write my thoughts, but for the shower thing, I couldn’t find any.
I sometimes ask myself : why do those thoughts have to disappear quickly and can’t be remembered easily?
My remedy is – I bought a notebook dedicated for my blogs and thoughts, so anytime I feel the vibe to write, I could – no matter where I am and who I am with.
Girl power — that’s what we got.
When pushed, we bite.
When forgiven, we love.
We appreciate the beauty of our fellow women.
We feel others emotion.
When loved, we love back.
That’s just us.
The women of today.
We got — Beauty and Power
She’s been sleeping for a year now, can you wake her up for me? I just wanted to greet her a Happy Mother’s Day. I wanted to tell her so many stories, over a year now, there has been many things that happened, many people changed, some arrived, some left.
My mother has been resting in peace for a year now, and I miss her. Anyways, losing her made me realize that nothing can surpass a mother’s love. I plan to visit her grave on Sunday.
I don’t know what it is, but it feels as if I never grew up that there’s a part of me that have always longed to be with my mother. I guess I should be one of the closet queens then.
I have seen girls that grew up to be ladies and now women of today that’re great mothers around their children. That’s why I salute all the mothers out there. I know it’s not a simple task to do. Not that I know of either.
To all mothers out there,
I salute you!
Till next time,
With many complications in a relationship, somehow you can think of that.
The thought is somehow similar to the saying “Shut up and kiss me”.
It’s parallel due to the fact that we would like to forget the world and run to our lover’s comfort
We are all a little broken inside, and I guess that’s okay.
Love and spark, you outta feel on the your first glance of him.
This angle is my favorite part to draw, the face of a woman facing a man, sideways, they meet each other’s eyes. Second to this, I’m fond of drawing an eye, a single eye. I’m sure the photos we draw has a connection to psychology, such the fact that it’s the picture we have in mind.
Anyways, I also appreciate art and beauty.
Till next time,
