Dark And Bitter

Why so bitter?

Why so dark?

So they splash a little milk or creamer to add a bit of colour

But that just ruins it, doesn’t it?

The aroma, the realness, the pureness

That’s what it’s all about.

So no, I say no to the sweetness of sugar

And no the any creaminess

You see,

I like it dark and bitter.

Ever since trying intermittent fasting, I’ve been into dark coffee. Been used to creamer and sugar that it took quite a while for me to get used to the pure bitterness of it. Now, I can’t get enough of it and prefer coffee as it is. How do you like your coffee? Or are you more a tea person?

Cold Coffee

My coffee has gone cold waiting for me.

In this cold morning, my coffee is colder still.

Much like your cold heart

Who left me lying on the cold floor

With my heart held in my cold hands.

And yet, I still drink my bitter cold coffee

As I toast the cold morning air

Remembering that from your coldness

I learned to embrace the warmth of my own sunshine.

Bit By Bitter

Took a while to get where I am

His memory lingered for months 

I felt I was scammed 

Like just part of his “hunts”

I fell prey to his empty words

No wiser was I then

I had to be my own knight, with my own sword

I realized this just when
And slowly I let go of that balloon 

Up to somewhere it went 

And bit by bit I got better all sooner than soon

Cereals and Coffee

Start the day

Trying to get back the energy I once had

When I was younger

When metabolism was faster

When coffee was bitter

And cereals were sweeter
Now I look at the table

Wondering of getting back in shape

Or should I just eat this cereal

Drink my coffee and go

Until Then

This is me slowly saying goodbye
I remember how this started with a simple “hi”
No bitterness, I promise, that’s no lie
I have to drown the emotions, now they slowly die
I was a good start, it was fun while it lasted
But alas! Your feelings and mine contrasted
And so, this is me walking away
Giving up now to fight another day
You deserve to be happy so now I begin
Letting go of what I never had, until then
