Black Coffee: reminiscence
by Jenna Grey

Like drinking black coffee,
in an Italian cafe,
you tasted so sweet on my tongue,
going down my throat.
When I thirsted for your essence
you filled me without hesitation.

Walking through an archive
filled with faded dreams,
your voice blurred words before
me
with the thought of you inside me.
I reached out to touch your
strength-
you led the way, I followed.

Like walking in cool rain
through a lakeside village,
you left me damp and trembling,
then rekindled my fever.
When I shivered beneath your
touch
you filled me with your warmth.

As thunder rattled windows
in this unfamilar world,
you thrust your way into my soul,
constant and unwavering.
When we thought the storm had
passed
still it came, rumbling in the
distance.

Again, my world is grey,
here, sitting at my desk.
I still feel you flow within me,
beneath aching fingertips.
When the emptiness grows too
intense,
I’ll sip black coffee: reminiscence.
