Fear And A Cup Of Coffee | Poem


 
 
 
FEAR AND A CUP OF COFFEE
 

'slip sliding away'
the stero sings,
as the room shrinks in,
and the microwave pings.
TV dinner,
a mug of Jo,
and the panic
as i realize
i see more beauty in a cup of coffee
than in the smile of a stranger.
All too soon
the music ends and
the silence lends
itself to darker moods.
Showers that last too long
are never long enough,
and I sit up late and
wonder where all my mornings have gone.
Maybe today
I'll watch the sun rise...
