Black On Black

Rating: 5.0

Black coffee poured into black mug
Looks rich beyond reality.
I inhale
With unabashed addictedness.
I close my eyes in expectancy.
To sniff almost seems enough,
Except my tongue waits
To drown itself
Again and again
In the black bath

Of ecstasy.

While sipping a cup of tea, I have just read your 'Black On Black' and liked this wonderful poem. 'Except my tongue waits To drown itself Again and again In the black bath Of ecstasy.' -Very few people can describe a simple sip so poetically and take it to such an ecstatic height! Absolutely beautiful! 10/10!
