Coffee

05 Feb

I’m tired of it

All the ‘oh, well, I am sure the one will turn up soon’

What if I am happier with my lot.

My material objects that bring contentment

I don’t want to lose myself again in someone else

I miss them too much when they leave

So please, stop feeling sorry for me

Just because you are happier in pairs

And believe that this is what should be

I’ll take my coffee a different way

And I am happy with it. The end.

    What a fantastic couple of lines, Scarlet. Thank you for sharing. And life in pairs is not the solution–just makes the problem much more immediate.
