Hot sweet coffee and cigarettes, I shouldn’t want you but I do.
How you compliment each other; an adoring couple.
How you draw me into your love,
Show your beauty and leave me wanting more.
But hot sweet coffee and cigarettes, you are so toxic for me
My heart, it pounds so loudly whenever you are near
And my lungs, a breathe, they cannot keep
Though my woes all melt away when I’m in your company
Oh hot sweet coffee and cigarettes, I’m afraid this must come to an end
Whilst so many memories we have shared and mornings you have cradled me into
Silently, secretly, you have been ebbing away at me
Creating a shell of who I used to be
Oh hot sweet coffee and cigarettes, I’ll miss your smell and comforting warmth
But I won’t miss your clinging presence, drawing me back to you at every turn
My every moment filled with thoughts of you
How you tell me, without you, I’m functionless, encapsulating me in a lie
So now, hot sweet coffee and cigarettes, we must now say goodbye
But not until another time
I need to bring to an end, this chapter of our lives.
You will carry on without me and so will, stronger, I.
