I wake up at 2 am only to the smell of coffee reminding me of you
Standing in the coffee shop queue every morning,
I gaze at you with a smirk on face and my heart yearning.
I bite my lip and stare at my shoes as I see you smile,
Then I hear the ding of the shop’s door and leave my fantasy world for a while.
The morning of my birthday gifted me with butterflies as I expectantly came,
You weren’t there and the pit in stomach formed a maim.
I left the store at the verge of tears as I bumped into you running outside,
You spilled coffee on my birthday suit yet I stood their with a smile too wide.
You apologised too much and I forgave too quick,
Is it controversial that this birthday is my favourite pick ?
I left for my home town for a few days but the coffee there didn’t taste as good,
I’d rather spend these cold mornings there if I could.
I returned soon only to see your yearning eyes,
I asked for my coffee and forced my grin to disguise.
I left with the ringing of the coffee shop door as I came across a writing on my cup,
“Is 8 ok for me to pick you up?”
