Leaving its lingering palate,
From each fresh betrayal.

Was so hot, so rich and intense,
Not the dizzying cream swirls,
That twist and blur in the mug.
Like boiling storm clouds
In depths of a confusion.
An effort to lighten moods,

Akin to the painful scald,
A sudden and nasty shock ,
From a too hot a drink,
Spilled and upended in a lap.
My coffee cup it seems,
Reflects my soul now,
And all of my heart now,
Mustnt forget those feelings.
Now hollow, just empty.
