Mocha

Steamy and hot

Burning my throat just enough.

Liquid white chocolate

Supporting a roof of whipped cream.

Decadence and bliss in a cup.

A cup full of

If I die right now, I am happy.



I keep looking at the red numbers on the alarm clock.

Has it really been only three minutes since my last look?

Those numbers are laughing at me

While I try to sleep

And can't

Like the children from the playground

Taunting me.

Nana Nana Boo Boo

You can't sleep.





While out with friends in the evening

My mocha tasted so good.

My sleepless night does not.
