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
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?
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.
I am bitter as I am sweet
I am clutter as I am neat
I am sadness as I am happy
I am darkness as I am sunny
I am madness as I am sane
She was bland and a little bitter
She was practical and could be a little sweeter
She was laughter and medicine
She was all but plain
The air is thick that I can taste the bitterness in my mouth
Let’s talk no more, we both know this is going south
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
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
I took the cup
And drank a day old coffee
Its bitter taste filled my mouth but I spit it out not
I took it in
I drank it all
And I learned a bit about life
From that day old coffee
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
