O! coffee, where art thou
When I need thee now?
In thy many flavoured blends
A hot cup would be godsend.
I cannot keep awake
Without a short coffee-break.
With thy life-giving aroma
Save me from going into a coma.
Java, Colombian or French Roast
Thy every flavour, I will toast.
To the end thy loyal slave
Three cups a day I will always crave.
I’ve been coffee-free for 15 days, and I miss it so much! I know I was addicted, but I’ve realised in this time away from my favourite brew that not only was I addicted, but I really, really do love coffee. The taste, the smell, the methods… everything. But my body does not love it, and so coffee, I bid you adieu.
