from another's perspective

I got this as a gift from someone close to my heart. I hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I did.

-=o0o=-

It was a wet morning... small drops of rains fall down from the sky... I was walking in the middle of busy street of Rufino going to Ayala. Excited to go to our meeting place. I know he’s already there. I dropped by at the convenient store to buy my cigars and then off to Starbucks. Immediately climbed the stairs to second floor and there he was... seating at the couch... in black t-shirt and tight jeans... staring at me as I walked towards him... I smiled; he smiled back...his eyes filled with thousands of emotions I couldn’t tell... and everything around me spun around.

We talked while we hold each others’ hands. We kissed without even cared what other people would care. His soft lips gently touched mine and I felt electricity run through my veins... As he sip his signature hot chocolate, I look at him full of admiration, his innocent face runs in my head like an ink permanently stained in my mind. His eyes keep enticing my attention as we speak.

He gently asked “why are your staring?”...

”nothing” I replied...

he smiled back and pouted his red lips...

I asked “why are you smiling?”...

he just said “nothing..” and I just smiled.

And our wordless conversation went on...

We talked about our lives, our used-to-be’s, our past; trying to connect things that are happening in the present. We talked about our childhood; how people around us molded us and made us who we are right now. And as we speak, we look in each others’ eyes full of affection, bliss and contentment. Every now and then we would have those ‘why-nothing’ talk and we just smiled back to each other. Both contented with the moment we are sharing right now... our silence delivers a thousand words that made our hearts pound uncontrollably with thrill and excitement. We look at each others' eyes and both of us would know. No words, no actions; just our eyes.

Once in a while I look at my watch, hoping the time would stop just for this moment so this would not come to an end. 30 minutes before 9:00am and we’re off to our work, time to split apart.

I asked him to come with me downstairs and I buy my drink. As we go down the stairs, we kissed again. Full of passion; closed eyes. Oh...this is heaven.

“One short cafe misto please...for here...”... we went outside. I lit a cigar and inhaled the smoke down to my lungs and blew it out through my mouth. He was looking at me, I smiled. We looked at the people rushing to cross the streets; people who have deadlines to meet, meetings to catch, and reports to submit. We observe people with their dress, with how they look like, and how they walk. We shared stories. We laughed. Time really stopped. I feel everything around me slowly moves as we talk. I finished my cigar and asked him to go back upstairs. As we were climbing up the stairs...we kissed again; closed eyes...passionately. I was holding his head as we kissed. He wrapped his hands around my waist. I feel secured.

15 minutes left before we separate our ways. I held his hands as we have our last minute talk. I looked at him, he raised his eyebrows and pouted his lips...he asked “why?”.... I said “nothing..”... he smiled... I smiled back... I asked “why?”... he said “nothing..”...and then we laugh...

It’s time to go back to the office and start our day. As we climbed down the stairs of the coffee shop, we kissed again... closed eyes...filled with emotions, hope and passion... both of us wished this moment will never end. But then again its 5 minutes remaining before 9:00 am, I need to go to the office.

I whispered “please take care...” and he said “you too... i’m gonna miss you...” and I smiled... looked at the street and proceed to cross Valero and Rufino towards our building.

I walked with my feet one inch above the ground...smiling... remembering his kisses...his touch...his mesmerizing eyes...his hands... it was another one charmed hour with him. As I placed my bag under my work station, and put my tie on, I remember our moments in the coffee shop that morning.

I smiled.

“Why are you smiling? ...” my officemate asked...

“Nothing...” was my reply...

She smiled back...

Then I turned to my PC and put my head set on.
