Melancholy In My Coffee - Poem by James Jarrett

Melancholy in my coffee

Subdues my day

Dresses me in drab

Lifeless clothing

The smile I wore yesterday

Left hanging in the closet

Slightly wrinkled

Sends me out the door

Under the grey sky

My vision clouded

My mind numbed

Even your warm skin

I kiss goodbye

Can't make the sun shine today

Tomorrow, I think, I'll take

My coffee black
