Coffee-holic

by mandaceehb

When I was young

I liked the sweet beverages

The sugar tasted like heaven on my tongue

But maybe that was because

My life had been heaven then

Now

Coffee has become an irreplaceable option

The rich, creamy liquid that soothes my throat

A bittersweet explosion on my tongue

And I wonder if I enjoy the bitterness

As a consolation for my own life
