Coffee


In darkness you can see light
but in light, you see only shadow

words can be seen, heard
felt or touched

they can move moutains
or take a soul
give pain or love

high on a hill top
eco down
across a concrete jungle
to a lady of loves lost
she has been mine and she
has been yours never knowing
when or with who to settle a score
she has left in a taxi and me at the door
I wonder if it is starbuc$ or greenbea$ coffee
that she wants more
lost like last weeks flavor a feeling no more
sugar cream baby let me get the door
this time I will leave a silly heart burning for more
I would love to find a flavor a taste a warmth a cup
that never ended and always filled me up
this is my love but it's seems bitter and black
cream or sugar I don't drink it like that
getting lost as I travel through this
oooooo cip it, , , up
and close this
