Coffee and lies #NaPoWriMo2020 Day 4

“I’d trade my last breath for you, for your happiness.”

It was the ninth lie he’d told me today

and I was still on my second cup of coffee

But I wasn’t mad

not at him

He probably even believed it himself

at least in the moment

He always meant well

and his sweet lies

had replaced the sugar and cream

in my coffee

  1. The last three lines are particularly poignant and evocative. A great piece.

  2. Excellent poem. Beautifully stated and I love that she’s aware that he’s lying.
