sips and soft kisses

i let the

coffee
saturate my tongue
but long for it
to be

you

i choose the

bitter
to replace your sweet
knowing nothing else
will

do

the rains have stopped but the overcast sky gives a false sense of autumn

the coffee steams gently as the hum of the air conditioner fills the silence

these are moments to be shared, of sips and soft kisses and trailing fingertips

i suppose

staring
at the ceiling
will have to
suffice

instead
