A POEM FROM MY OLD FRIEND LAILA
YOU are my one true love You are there when no-one else is. You make me excited , but then I can`t sleep You give me ideas but make me nervous You are bitter and make me rush I`m not sure I like your taste but can`t wait for it
I watch you before I sip you You are so beautiful Texture like hot velvet black rich creamy top with swirls I finally have you and I'm relieved before I devour you
You spread electricity through my body awaken my senses improve my mood I remember passion a flood of inspired creativity. that later looks like a moment of madness
I realise I can`t have more or I`m going to be delirious I need to stop I want more I stare at the bottom of the cup try to read the pictures in the grains see if I have a future without you
You are always there for me and you only cost £ 2.40
Without you I can`t stand train journeys ,hospital visits, foreign holidays, meeting friends in cafes , GREEN TEA?
Maybe I should just give up sleeping? You`ve taken me places I would never have gone alone Old atmospheric cafes in European cities with mesmerising patterned high ceilings where old wrinkled men sit for days talking about what has happened to the world and playing cards sipping on one sweet black coffee kept me up long enough to watch the sunrise for days on end until falling asleep standing up outside Amsterdam central station
You`ve been my traveling companion You`ve taught me right from wrong never go to cafe Nero , the coffee tastes of dish water , - or hang out with people who want to meet in cafe Nero
Long black is the best but not in bad cafes where it`s burnt and bitter
You`ve helped me out when I haven`t known what to do
Honestly have you ever met an interesting person who has given up coffee?
Did Picasso paint on mint tea?
Coffee i Love you
But now its time to say goodbye You are so attractive and mind curdlingly nice, but know you have other lovers and don`t need me You hurt my body chase my mind while it runs away prevent me from lying peacefully next to a lover who has FALLEN ASLEEP BEFORE ME made me talk too fast without listening made me want you when I should be doing yoga
Without you I`ll be free of attachment clear in mind spend less time in cafes and more time doing the washing up Green tea can`t help me now nobody can Goodbye my love parting is such sweet sorrow except it isn`t you are often bitter and I don`t like you
so fuck you coffee
I' m gone, well just one more...
