I never seem to catch you at the right time
You’re the cup of coffee that I only sip when hot enough to burn my tongue
Or cold enough to put me off to the habit all together
Yet still I am an addict for the alertness you bring me each dawn
And despite that you are my morning ritual
You are also the cause of my headaches
My jitters
My bitter attraction

So what if your touch burns my lips
Or if I find you sour when cool
Let me have my drug by any means
Or dare abstain altogether
