My Last Cup of Coffee

My prompts for today were the words sweet, chocolate, indulgence and sugar. I struggled with this, but as I sit on my couch with the Coffitivity app playing in my headphones, it came to me. I hope you enjoy it.

Murmured voices break the silence


To my right
a cute couple clink
their wine glasses together
in a celebratory toast.


Off to the left,
an older gentleman
engages an old-ish lady
in whispered conversation.
I’m guessing he’s whispering
sweet nothings to his bride.


The well dressed young man
standing at the bar
survey’s the crowd,
looking restless.
He seems to be waiting
for…


Ah, that beautiful girl
that just walked in.
Her eyes light up,
his face breaks into
a big smile.


I love the ambience
of this old place.
Red carpets,
dim lights,
candles flickering in
every direction.


My time here is
almost done.
I only need
some sugar
for this last
cup of coffee.
