Still Waiting

I can still feel you,
deep in the recesses
of my soul.
You still have a hold
over this heart that has
loved you for so long.
I still see you in my dreams.
I still wake up with your
name on my lips.
Your touch is still etched
on my skin and I long
for your embrace.
I crave for the feel of
your legs brushing
against my own.
I still need you to see me
and to want me to be with you.
I’ll wait for your call.

at the start of my work week,

If you think this post about cream pie is all about making or eating one, then you are wrong. Based on the poem above, this post is mostly going to be a rant against cream pies or about something directly related to them. But, since I love pies, especially strawberry cream pie, you might find a recipe of my favorite pie below. Before we go to that though, let me tell you about my horrible cream pie experience this week.

My Cream Pie Experience

I manage and edit the blogs of a well-known talent resource site in the US. Because these blogs are directly related to entertainment, my team and I prefer to produce entertainment-related posts for them. However, the owner of the company has a different idea about what works for his site.

He believes that just because desserts and animals are trending online, these would also be great for our main blog. So, instead of focusing on articles that will cater more to our kind of audience, he is asking us to churn out posts about amazing animals and delectable desserts.
