📺 #MANILAGIRL: At the Coffee Shop

A love poem.

So I stained the Starbucks tissue
With tears that I couldn’t hold back
Its fibers were even stronger
Than the truth I was holding on to

I had lipstick mark in my mind
To tuck in your pocket just before you go
But I had to wipe my eyes instead
Just because I had to know

But still you lied
And off you go
At the coffee shop we parted
At the coffee shop I got broken hearted

Why you had to lie
And why I had to brush it off
I flipped my hair and thought
We’d make it through

Coz I believed in you
Been 4 years looking in your eyes
Thinking with my heart
I saw you thru and thru

I wasn’t perfect
But I never poisoned your coffee
So how can you watch me
Just cry and say sorry

And all these time tell me
I love you baby
And then face me
With words of fantasy
Void of truth and empathy
You lied to me how you lied to me

So I stained the Starbucks tissue
With tears that I couldn’t hold back
Its fibers were even stronger
Than the truth I was holding on to

I had lipstick mark in my mind
To tuck in your pocket just before you go
But I had to wipe my eyes instead
Just because I had to know

But still you lied
And off you go
At the coffee shop we parted
At the coffee shop I got broken hearted…
