Coffee and tears stain this poem
inside a dim light of misery glows
and my heart beating to the flow of caffeine,
makes me more nervous to write my pain.
There deep within my core,
the water strikes my loneliness
it’s a shore I’ve connected with
so long in my life it’d be painful to
drag me from the sandy edge for I’ve swallowed
just too much of my agony to come back from —
this I know my heart still beats to the flow
but as of right now I want it to finally show
me that I’m not as alone,
along the shore
facing this sand forevermore.
