no milk no cream no sugar

seeing you tastes like bitter black when I was eight.
her red lipstick doesn’t suit your
coffee bean breath
mocha whispers
so only my taste buds will
cradle me when I cry tomorrow,
the only shots I’ll have
will be a last cinnamon smile,
a vanilla voice,
and these cravings to bathe in wit
luscious conversation
and still
I feel so watered down when I see those red lipstick stains
taking what I had ordered for so long.
