Coffee Shots

Coffee Shots

A Poem by Nostrovia

I just realized something
I am covered in human skin
Hows that for a revalation?  
Here's an overdose basket case
Of coffee and vanilla chai
I am shaking brittly 
But I cant tell if it's the caffeine
Or lack of sleep
A single-tasking space-gazer
Because empty corners are more interesting

Wow, this is really good. Very funny in a way too. The problem is, it feels incomplete. I think there's more that you should add. The narrator sounds so paranoid and timid, I love it. And I love coffee too, I never saw it as 'shots' before, but I guess coffee can make someone jittery by overdosing. I'll definitely check out the website. :D

A succinct and delightfully charming write - there is a bit of the jitters and some loneliness and/or boredom from the notion of staring into corners...great write Nostrovia - keep em coming!

Sounds familiar. Coffee is such a sweet addiction. I absolutely adore how light-heartedly weighted this is. The speaker's slightly spazzy train of thought makes the last line have a much greater impact. I do feel like its frennzied but calm feel makes this poem. Usually I don't like things that appear simple because I read into them too much, but I loved the quirky nature of this! Great work :)

I like that this is short, sweet, and to the point.
I'm impressed by how quickly and easily the message is put across.
I don't think you should add to it, it would distract from the simplicity that makes it an enjoyable read.
nicely done
