Oh C.M.!

HARDPEN'S MIXED BAG

coffee

You’re sweet
You’re strong
You lift me up
You make my heart beat fast
You gave me sleepless nights

They say you’re no good for me
I then tried hard to avoid you
…against my will

I succeeded
But just briefly

For one day, that familiar fragrance
Shattered what’s left of my conviction
Never to submit again to your spell

So down I went to the coffeehouse where I first met you
I was excited oh C.M.
To have my soul
Enslaved again by your fullness
Twisted by your sweetness

There in the coffeehouse I told the server
“C.M. please!”
“And what’s that sir?” She asked.
“Caramel macchiato!!!” I replied.

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
