CAFFE LATTE


Like Caffeine Through My Veins
Like A Bullet To My Brain
Thoughts Of You Infest

Dazzled By Your Scent
Unsure Of My Intent
My Will I Dare To Test

My Cup I Give To You
A Rich And Creamy Brew
And Hope I Have Impressed

Like A Latte Warm And Fine
Our Dalliance Seems Divine
We Stir Up A Hornet's Nest

Alas, Some Woeful Slips
Between Cup And Sultry Lips
And Our Tryst Is Laid To Rest

    1. Well actually the coffee cup is a metaphor for a relationship that is initially hot and full of flavour, but eventually ends up leaving a bitter aftertaste

  6. A lot happens over a cup of coffee. Now I must say that a lot happens with the cup of coffee too! Good one Christopher.

  7. Really awesome, “Alas, Some Woeful Slips
    Between Cup And Sultry Lips... “ about a cup of caffeine. Coffee to me is such a sinful love, an addiction and a longing, am I talking like an addict? :D

  9. Short and bittersweet like drinking a really good latte. Small and warm until it's all gone. Nice job! :)

  12. Although, the affair was short-lived, but surely was as warm and special as the cup of Latte. Some relations are special till the time they last. :)

    1. It was more like a one night stand...it ended as soon as the 'coffee' lost steam.

      Thanks for dropping by.
