Coffee

You were coffee,
Concentrated Cuban coffee
Saturated with caffeine
And I took more than one sip of you…

No wonder I am so hyper
No wonder I cry just looking at the moon
No wonder I have been awake for thirteen months
Counting from the day you said goodbye…

You were coffee
Dark and all shades of beautiful
Your aroma drove me crazy
And I took more than one sip of you…

No wonder I smell and taste you in everything
No wonder I couldn’t look at ginger the same way ever again
No wonder I lost my appetite
Starving from the moment you said goodbye…

You were coffee
Rich and musky with a earthy taste
You reminded me of petrichor and everything natural
And I took more than one sip of you…

No wonder I lost my love for the rain
No wonder thunderstorms give me nightmares
No wonder home doesn’t feel like home anymore
A refugee from everything I loved from the moment you said goodbye…

It’s your tangy taste I taste on another lips
It’s your deep aroma I smell in their hair
It’s your caffeine that power my rage
As I seek vengeance against the universe that broke us apart…

Why not share?
