COFFEE

By- Monjima Ghosh

 

I wake up from dreams of you,

Only to find myself looking for someone who isn't here anymore,

Is this loneliness?

Or is it when I check my phone hoping your name pops up and it doesn't?

Is it when I'm in a room full of people,

And yet I'm not there but in my head,

Maybe it’s when I drink my favourite coffee,

And it tastes like waves crashing over me,

Because it reminds me of you.
