THE DAY I SAW YOU
I never forget to use all of my senses every time I stepped my foot in this city.
Humidity that left a tingling sensation on my skin
The smell of gasoline
The bright luminescent sky that made me squint
The chitter-chatter of my mother tongue accompanied by the noise of honking cars from afar.
Landing my feet here have never been an issue although I was born and raised hundreds of kilometers away from this restless urban area. I choose to travel two hours from where I landed to get home. I used to have a lot of anticipation and admiration to this city.
As much as I admire the one who never failed to convince me about the many wonder of the place she called home. I used to long for her warm greetings, comforting hugs, and tip-toed kisses. But not anymore.
I used to enjoy every minutes I spent seating on an inanimate four-wheeled drive with the sight of red lights. I used to cherish the very last moments of my solitude, because 60 minutes later, I would have arrived in my comfort and nothing else matters. But again, not anymore.
