My glass of iced coffee,
Sits on the counter.
I stir in,
My sugar,
And pour in my cream.
I watch through the clear cup,
As the cream falls down,
Leaving only a thin trail,
Of light in the black coffee.
So much like me.
I stir,
My coffee.
I watch,
The light cream swirl up,
From the deep darkness.
Who will stir my light,
Up,
From deep in my darkness?

Hey dragons! I liked your creativity with the coffee, and I'll probably never find another poem like this one! I did think it was a bit choppy though. Some lines were hard to read because of it. On the last few lines, I thought you could've combined some of the lines to make it flow better. But, you're a great writer to be able to find a deeper meaning within coffee! Good job, and keep it up.

Coffee. YES!! I like this. A lot. And it's perfect to sit and read in Starbucks. How fitting :D

This is really cool. A great writer can provoke emotion and depth from the most mundane things, I give you props for that :)

Hey pal! I like the title, it's really interesting, and after reading the poem I liked the title even more. I really enjoyed your symbol here, literally it's a tasty symbol. I never thought to use coffee as a symbol in writing. Anyways, I really liked the simplicity of using coffee but writing about something that is on a much deeper level. I know how you feel.. the ending was great, super relatable, and I love that you ended with a question. As always, you're great and so is this.
