A Coffee Story This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

The brew's warmth
felt misplaced in the palms
of my hands. I still long
for your fingers which
intertwined so perfectly
with mine. I'm very foolish
for even in the coffee I
see your eyes looking back at
me. Your caramel swirl irises
look at me with tenderness

you used to have toward me.
The steam even delineates your
name in the air. After all, you're
my every thought of my every day,
and just like coffee, your caffeine
makes me your irresistible addict
