Dregs of life
at the bottom of a coffee cup
puffy eyes
wrinkled brow
smile lines are frown lines now.

Drink up
breathe out
let coffee steam
soothe what’s real,
not could have been.

Bodies wear out,
faces fold up
and coffee gets cold
in your favourite cup.

    If the coffee doesn’t do the trick,
    Try chocolate – it’s good AND quick!

    All fine, thanks. It’s an old poem but about the same me and the same cup I’m drinking my morning coffee in
    today. 😉
