Farewell Black Shoes and French Kisses

>> Tuesday, February 2, 2010

You have walked with me, on
Damp avenues, rusted pavements
And daily sunshine, as you
Whole-heartedly housed my tired
Journeying on your limited
Darkened twin rooms.

But I have seen lately that shining
Blackness of your skin and
Forehead, faded as those Levi’s
jeans I wear three times a week.
Your tongue tied on the silent
Opening of your wide mouth has
Grown quite tired from our
Constant French kisses in the morning.
Your embrace on my dependence is now
cold, arms loosened like the button
of my favourite old green polo
shirt, exploring that little
universe of its sole existence.

I still love you for Christ’s sake! Though
I can see that you are already growing
tired of the weight of my love. But
I have to let you go: let go even
Of our French kisses; goodbye to
Strolling on romantics boulevards
During boring afternoons. Because
You are now gone, stolen by the
Darkness from my embrace; while
I was fast asleep in confidence that
I Will have you forever.

Farewell to you black shoes,
I must move on now.

Must have felt like second skin, must have given you comfort through dreary days when joys or good news is spread like thin gruel. A familiar smell. A comforting hug that feels like an assurance that all will be well. And now it's gone.

The day you buy your first luxury car. What will you call it, bro? Your muse?

A toast to the ephemeral but irreplaceable things that give us joy. :)

Oh, dapat nalagyan natin siya ng chip na matrack kung nasaan na. Hindi naman kaya naglayas siyang mag-isa? :P Maybe he just needs some time or space to think things over? LOL!

@jan_geronimo: minus the smell, it was like indeed a second skin. Can't easily let go of it obviously, LOL! Maybe because it is some rare kind of Italian brand of shoes..ehehehe


A luxury car? Hmmm...I'll call her my muse indeed...

@Minnie: ahahhaha, natawa naman ako dun...pwedeng naglayas nga kasi demanding ako sa kanya ehhehe...

Parang James Bond ano, may tracking chip sa sole ng shoes, eheheh!

Cool off muna kami...
