Coffee, the antidote and the disease
Caffeine, the chemical always ingested
To spread an infection,
While simultaneously being the cure.
It’s another night of being kept awake,
Of jittery limbs and running thoughts.
It’s your fuel to talk to me with
Sugar, to sweeten my words.
As our inner emotions,
With those hot warning signs
Leak out to scald our bare skin
When we thought we had the cure –
A salvation to nothingness.
But we just polluted our bodies
With toxins messing the chemicals
On an unbalanced emotional scale.
I’m drinking caffeine again
Writing nonsensical poetry again.
So I guess it’s for the best,
We don’t meet for coffee again.
