Coffee Dreams: A Poem

Updated on August 15, 2011
Source


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...')

      Blessings.
