“I wasn’t a morning person, but you gave me a burst of energy. I needed you. You complete me. You made my day.” I mumbled this words as I reached for my second cup of coffee while staring at my phone and checking the sites I owned for a feed back on my literary works from both seasoned and amateur writers.
I haven’t slept the previous night. I have been awake for more than 30 hours already and was contemplating about what I should write in my blog. There’s just a lot of issues I’d like to tackle and just thinking about it made me restless. Some of the issues I’d like to address were the following:
- The surge of terrorism in Marawi City and how it will spread like wildfire if left on its own.
- Declaration of Marshall Law: It’s Pro’s and Cons & the ulterior motives of people who were against it (or against the administration).
- A poem for the fallen soldiers or the beheaded inspector.
I was literally lying on my bed counting sheep’s, waiting for the slumber to take me in. But then sleep didn’t visit me last night, it rarely does anymore. So after 2 hours of trying to psyche myself into falling asleep I finally gave up and did my usual routine. Subsequently, I started an account for my sketches (oh the visual crimes!).
I felt like a zombie, seriously. “But then you came along. Oh my mon café au lait, the smell of you invigorates my senses. The taste of you jolts me awake. You’re all I ever needed, all I ever craved, mon café au lait.”
