Silken cream swirled into a dream
of frothy clouds hide velvet compounds.
An inviting scene that makes senses so keen
to taste the goodness steaming from a screen.
Swaddled in sheets that may seem
like a sunshine reflecting upon a stream.
Where have you been my codeine laced caffeine?
About time you showed up, my life’s about to careen?
You are sweetness’ slumbering kiss for a theme
hiding behind eyes where sunrises bask and teem.
One smile is enough to wrap my heart in sateen
longing for moments eaten away like gangrene.
And so I sip my coffee to your absence’s gleam
reminiscing your presence in endless daydream.
I hold my phone to see your last seen
time day and night, my favorite routine.
So here I am waiting for your call to redeem
my soul from longing’s devious scheme.
