Friday Date


 we're senti and low-maintenance
we can feast on just balut and buko juice
just tour the grounds around ortigas
after afternoon mass at edsa shrine
to talk about all things
that mean a lot, and nothing
we are one as we walk, holding hands
uncaring of how us 40-year olds may look
corny but sweet, like this
our stares light but deep
echoing love once forestalled
but now thriving
i don't know but for me
it is enough that we stay this way
old but still senti
old but still low-maintenance
as long as it's the two of us
it is always enough

Thanks to www.123rf.com for the pic.
