The Effects Of Coffee - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

It started over coffee
This thing with you and me
Well coffee and tea in the afternoon
Ended with a passionate exchanged under the moon

Now the kiss wasn't that of fairy tales
But my god the memory never pales
From your light hearted jokes
To the disapproving looks from the old folks

You left me on my doorstep safely home yet alone
But my heart stopped when I heard your tone on my phone
Not even three steps into my house and still with you
And that night I fell to sleep feeling alive and new

The next day I woke up to your voice and cried
There you stood outside my window, I've never felt so tongue tied
You laughed as I called you a fool, said ‘only for you'
And I began to think this was all too good to be true

The feeling never let up and I worry to this day
That I'll wake up to find I was just a good lay
But every time you see my fear you pull me near
And kiss away my fear until my worries clear

So all I have to say is this, thank you
For staying here and showing me a love so true
That it makes the world that so much brighter
And makes my heart and soul that much lighter
