My long-lost Love: a Reunion.

When you’ve broken up…and have been apart from each other for several years—and then…you’re reunited.


I think the thing I may love the most
is the smell of you in the morning.

That strong, earthy scent,
a subtle hint of tobacco.

You’re so warm,

You excite me—
my senses awaken.

I take you into me…
just a sip, at first,
and then…




You make me come alive—
fingertips tingling,
heartbeat quickening,
eyes gleaming.

I am revitalized.

Old, familiar friend—
I’ve missed you, Coffee.




Take me Back to my Happy Place. {Poem}
