‘Cold Coffee Compunctions’ | kaleido_peace | Poetry

While the water boils I think about how
I once had a flaming love that burned 
But I blew it like the coffee I just made
By now I have learned that the only place
Colder than the shoulder
Of someone who doesn’t miss you
Is the other half of my bed
And now that our break up is older
Someone else gets to kiss your forehead
I’d like to believe that you regret giving up
Like how I regret not doing enough
To keep you happy for much longer
As I reminisce on a love that was stronger
Than coffee that turned cold
I think about how
I should’ve loved you while we were warm
