black coffee

the coffee is black with notes of cinnamon bitter to tongue pleasant to palate

her lips were sweet like fresh berries but her tongue tasted acrid like dreams gone to dust

the coffee is black with notes of cinnamon but today i long for cream or possibly a bit of sugar

her eyes like diamonds beautiful but too close it was clear nothing could match the hardness

drinking black coffee while black flag sings black coffee yet all i can do is stare at the ceiling instead
