A Coffee Scented Dream

You said you loved me
Like you loved your coffee
Of how when you woke up, you’d crave me
How the scent of me intoxicated you so

And it was all true, truer still was
How you always found me
A little bitter, and that you could never accept me
Never love me, without changing what I was

I was your coffee scented dream
Lathered with a generous helping of sugar and cream
Masking who I truly was
Denying what we truly were

And you loved every sip
Of the lies you drank, the lies we shared
My requiem of lost love
And of yours too

Love which was never real to begin with
Only a whiff of something you wanted
Something I could never offer
All sugar, all cream
