Baisers de Fraises

“Alone and Longing” – Quezon City, 2009

when we

were young,

i would

wonder

what your

kisses

would be like

would feel like

would taste like.

 

and my

thoughts

would stray

would fancy

would crave

strawberries:

summer-ripe

scarlet

succulent;

sharp yet sweet

fresh with

the promise

of dreams

of visions

of some

long-ago

eden.

 

and you’d

break into

daydreams

with

flippant quip

fey smirk

and shatter

my illusions.

 

but to dream

is sweet;

to wonder,

divine.

 

 

and while

‘most a score

has passed,

i wonder

still;

and yearn

and long

and wish

for strawberries

ripened in

sunshine,

for days past,

for you.
