Sweet Coffee

You said coffee isn't bitter.

- It's bittersweet.

I tasted your cup and fell in love with your coffee.

Yes, it's bittersweet.


Suddenly, my mornings were filled with coffee.

Suddenly, your cup has become my cup.

Suddenly, I relied on coffee to wake me up.

Suddenly, your cup has become the source of my reverie.


Until hyperacidity hit me.

Until I tried to find a cup of tea.

Until caffeine withdrawal symptoms hit me.

Until I'm missing coffee so deeply.


And then I realized, coffee doesn't have to be bittersweet.

It has to be sweet.

I found my own cup of coffee.

- Sweet, not bittersweet.


Please, fall in love with your sweet cup of coffee.
