you always thought your brown eyes were boring but to me they were beautiful.

they're the color of strong coffee without any milk.

maybe that's why I felt a rush of energy every time I saw you. and why my hands started to shake when we held eye contact. you gave me the strength to get up in the morning and you kept me going throughout the day.

maybe that's why, when you left, I was left with just a bitter taste in my mouth.

I don't drink coffee anymore.
