And when I die don't say goodbye for death is just my beginning.


coffee is like you, like us
bittersweet
burns my tongue
leaves my lips scorned with
a bad taste lingering in my mouth
it is an everyday thing
a must
a drug
I like my coffee like your soul
black as night
cheap and common
like your lies
You're the average cup of joe
