"Coffee And A Sunrise..."

"Coffee And A Sunrise..."

A Poem by Chris

Catching a breath


This was inspired while listening to Tabby Mac




Ever cry watching a sitcom

as it's your life ...on view.

And the laughter sounds

as tears fall down

and down ...down

'til the tracks burn

your very soul.


"Coffee And A Sunrise..."


Coffee and a sunrise -

a moment to breathe

a whisper to a shared God

about ...nothing - cause the words

still come and the thoughts

still follow and the dreams


and it hurts


and the eyes burn

and I want

I want...


more than 

...this NOW

and yesterday isn't enough anymore

I'm more ...MORE... than that

than this

than tomorrows' loneliness

tomorrow's numbness



I wish

wishwishwish... W I S H


I know

KNOW's cold

but I touched


being alive ...again.

Omg I remember watching the episode from Game of thrones (the red wedding) and how I got traumatised by all my favourite characters just dying. The first thing that came to my mind was "ok I need coffee to overcome this sadness"
I've also had this addiction to coffee. I would get daily head aches if I didn't have coffee. My skin got all sorts of acne
Terrible times
I also feel here in this poem
The poet seems to be using coffee as an excuse or item to hide and mask away all his insecurities and problems. It's like he needs something even the smallest ray of happiness,like one gets from coffee, to feel normal again. It's like a drug to him.
Wonderfully written poem

Interesting thoughts Pia...thanks for pausing AND sharing
I think you need a coffee partner and that mornings with coffee makes you feel alive. But if you are not feeling alive and you have touched it for even a brief moment then be thankful God allowed you to feel it once more.

The scatteredness and constant punctuation marks of this poem really sets the tone for this write. I feel like we all experience these feelings of sadness and confusion at some point in our life. Very beautiful, emotional write!

I got the fact that a sip of coffee can cure any thoughts or uneasy emotions. It is a safe place to run to.

Yes we certainly do! Made me realize I need to pause and think
Reflections on what is and has been as the coffee settles
Nice work here with your words!
I relate to this so well.

Good "seeing" you again. Congrats on the new degree - wear it well and with pride - you earned it!
Lips, once silenced, can never ask a question; and a mind, once stilled, can never question. It's a human nature to question, to not see what's seen, and to know and deny. We are a fickle lot, aren't we?

As always, your words are a divination, a recognition, and prayer.

So poignant and compelling. "Coffee and a sunrise"- the time for introspection and questions that often go unanswered... " a whisper to a shared God." Yes. Great flow, repetition, form and imagery. I hear this poem with my soul.
