no cream, no sugar

no cream, no sugar

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

no cream, no sugar

 

coffee's dark intuitions

latent lyrical laments----lie in wait

wish i had left today

 

alone.

Welcome :)
Just as black coffee, no cream and sugar, sometimes we regret being with someone or something we don't really like. We may want to give chance to improve its "taste" , yet it is what it is.

no cream no sugar ..cut to the chase! what a somber, and mysterious write to me ... things went bad at the coffee shop ... i smell the intoxication of strong black coffee as i morose over perhaps having come with someone ... who ended it ... funny how the way "alone" is presented ..it seems like a good place to be in closing your poem ... but it has been a very long time since alone scared me ;) really like this one jacob ...there is much more in it says i!

A day to forget as you drink in the bitterness with this very black piece Jacob. Hoping left is left it behind for a new day and not exited permanently?

yes, on the exited permanently , John....
thank you, for your words.

Do you wish you had not, at all, experienced this particular day? Or, are you wishing you hadn't encountered someone in whose company you greeted the next day?
In any event, coffee sounds pretty good right now.
Stunning little write!

Usually I like to drink coffee black and day dream on the aroma and taste but this had dark undertones with dark intuitions and the wish to leave this day. A nice write again Jacob.
