Love Happens

Love Happens

written by: Michelle Ayon Navajas

 

I wonder how it feels to kiss you
boy, I did just as you wondered
without hesitation, without inhibitions
without second thoughts
no words; there was complete silence.

I wonder how it feels to kiss you
now you left me wondering too
‘cos little do you know that I’m in love
and petrified for the first time
and probably the last time in my life.

I wonder how it feels to kiss you
was my best memory of you
for years and years, even decades after
intentionally written or a poetic bait
it doesn’t matter, for I, too, wondered.

I wonder how it feels to kiss you
was the beginning of the end
of you wondering and me hoping
that somewhere in the middle
of the busy streets in Manila
love will finally happen.

I wonder how it feels to kiss you
it happened; you stopped wondering
I stopped hoping, ‘cos indeed, no matter
what happens there is no denying
that in between our pretenses
love happens.
