Coffee Dreams: A Poem


Coffee dreams aren't always what they seem

I look to you for a hidden gleam

As I gaze at your eyes

They sure do mystify

Makes me wonder what's in my future

But my heart's gonna need more than just a suture

Can you promise me forever, dear?

Are your intentions for me quite clear?

Or are you an illusion sent from space?

A backboard for rebound or a resting place?

If you can't promise more than a lasting friendship

I'd sure appreciate some advice or a tip

But you know that I wish upon a star

For silent reveries, dreams from afar

Will you provide a lasting bond?

Or only to help me to drown in this lonely pond?....

Can't stand the smell of coffee! LOL I did use to drink a lot though, but have gone off it.

So the poem must work for some ppl, I'm sure.

Oh well; lol. Caffeine can be bad for people in large amounts anyway. I think anybody can relate to my poem, because of the emotions conveyed in it; I think it's about more then just coffee. Thanks for your feedback, f!

YW :)

(If I have Coke, it's also usually the diet variety for the same reason....)

Coffee: 'if it works for some ppl...'.... (A bit like other stuff, really, tats, piercings, etc., 'if they work for some ppl...')
