caffeine shock

we meet somewhere, somehow
and over coffee we sipped
each minute by; our eyes
lock, we kiss; embraced
hot brew that brimmed
over the cup in our hands -
heat is the rush caffeine
in your lips, sugar on your hips
cream on your bosom -
drowned the din that was
the net, as if
we have known each other
for a lifetime. until

we've finally met face to face
somewhere, somehow

and facing the bottom of the cup

there won't be any refills.
