The Junky to her Addiction

Your flesh on my tongue, I do love to taste

not one drop of your blood dare I to waste.

My life, by your mere presence enlightened

my thoughts, my senses at once are heightened.

In you I find comfort, and all that is right

you are there in the day and also at night.

You are my salvation; you ease all my pain

in you I trust, in you my faith remains.

You are there for me in my darkest of hour

it is from you that I draw all of my power.

Some may doubt you, may miss you allure

but when my cup runs empty again I shall pour.

When I found you it was as if I had wakened from a dream

your dark, rich flavor mixed with a hint of cream.

  5. Melanie…I have been addicted to coffee all of my life…so much so tha tat one time I lost my hair because I was drinking to much.
    However, I love this poem and I will drink a toast to you in the morning.

    • Oh my! I’ve never lost hair from drinking coffee and I’ve been drinking it my entire life. My parents put it in my bottle when i was a baby! (no lie…it was mostly milk and sugar but still what the heck were they thinking?!)

      Thank you for your compliment and the toast. That made me smile ๐Ÿ™‚
