Oh Caffeine, you nasty ghoul!

You flirted with me and made me the fool.

I'd resisted your lure for a small season,

then made a decision without rational reason.

The piper is now being payed his due,

I'm wishing I hadn't indulged in that brew.

For the hour is late, yet here I remain...

I alertly anticipate the sleep I will feign.

New Love

I fell in love again tonight
across the table
illuminated by our dinner light

I saw a man I used to know
he exposed himself
in that reminiscent glow

isolated by everyday life
too distracted to see
a husband and wife

I found him in his boyish grin,
his Caribbean blue eyes
I wondered where he'd been

under his stare, my cheeks start to blush
we speak in a hush
we try not to rush

we encourage this latent love renewed
"I've missed you" we say
our voices subdued

There's comfort in the space we share
our hearts we bare
an answered prayer
