Unspoken Words in a Coffee Shop

Sedfrey A. Ordonez

 

Both came alone

to drink with us

but eyes that shone

above coffee cups

signalled their wish 

to be alone.

 

I walked away

not looking back

not willing to show 

my thumping want

not to be alone.

 

Tagalog Rendering (Also by Author):

“Kabiguang Tagpo sa Kapihan”

 

Dalawa sila

sa ating harapan

kape nila’y di nabawsan

pakiwari ta’y

di tayo pansin

ng mata nilang

nagtalik sulyapan

Nag-iisa ka noon

(ako ri’t nag-iisa)

bakit nga ba

di pinagsama?
