coffee

finger gently gliding
across the rim of my
coffee cup
and I trace your lips
lifting you towards my mouth
to drink you down
hands on my back
warm liquid soothes on through
you bite my lip
I burn my tongue
I crave you more
you calm my need
another cup
to fill the want
just one more kiss
and nothing more
but a lip print
on the brim
and oh, the stain on my heart
