Mirroring Our Lives…

October 7, 2008 at 9:53 pm (Love, Memories, Moments, Places, Relationship)

I sit on one of the chairs here at Jollibee. Letting the time pass. It was too early for me to go to the bank to claim my new ATM card. I guess this was the universe’ lesson to me because I had lost my first ATM card. Whew! I hope I will learn from this.

Since all I have in my pocket is my bus fare, I can’t afford to buy anything at the said food chain—yes, even the cheapest one. So I let myself envy those who indulge themselves of my favorite burger steak. And I feel awful for myself, yeah. I must wait until the clock strikes at 9am. And when I have my ATM at hand, it’s fiesta time!

Couples are eating. Talking to each other the words that only the two of them hear and understand. Followed by a soft giggling, smiling. You can feel the love even when you watch them. I can see from their faces the feeling of happiness, the happiness of being in love.

this what starving looks like!

this what starving aliens looks like!

I started to starve. “Hell, how long will I wait here? How long will I suffer?” (And that was already a form of “suffering” for me)

All of a sudden, my thoughts of being in love were disturbed by a group of noisy people at the other table. Friends, as I should call this next group of people, were loudly laughing and cracking jokes to each other. And by this scenario, my own friends also entered my mind.

And it’s already 9am—at last. And I’m going to leave the place that served as my haven of thoughts for a moment. Thanks for driving my mind.
