A Cup Poured And Pouting Poem by Susan Lacovara

A Cup Poured And Pouting

Brewing over my wake up coffee
I can't help but wonder...

Does she love you with the richness
Of whipped cream kisses
And spooned out sugar sweetness

Does she write love letters
On brown paper bags
To feed your hunger throughout the day

Does she study your reflection
In the mirror while you shave
Memorizing the corners
Of your soapy smile

Does she wake you with the lyrics
of your favorite love song
unafraid to sing slightly off key

Does she tell you her dreams
And inserts you into every one of them
Leaving enough room for rainbows and rhymes

Does she look at the stars and realize
They pale in comparison to you

Does she know what to say
To calm your spirit
When the whirlpool of worry arises

Does she genuinely intend to keep your heart
Free from the prison of the past
Open it, relish it, protect it

Does she know what love YOU deserve
Or do you think you deserve less

Like this morning's coffee
Cold, and with a little bit
Of Bitterness
I simply swallow it....

Even when offered with all the sweetness and sincerity the response is cold and mute. None knows for sure what love requires. Beautiful poem Susan. Congratulations and greetings.
