Hot Over Coffee

Having just had the best run in several months,
I stood in line at Starbucks,
Admiring your dark locks.
I imagined running my fingers
through your thick hair,
while thinking naughty thoughts
about you… down there.

Then, while waiting for our
handcrafted beverages
to be served, I sized you up.
Pretending to busy myself
with my phone.
I saw your glances
sharing a few
moments of
fleeting eye contact.

You bore no rings
in your hot jeans.
I imagined taking off
your sweatshirt,
yet I was not brave enough
to flirt…

Just then, the barista
called out “tall flat white.”
we both stepped up.
Could this be true?
Then she reached out
again, placing another
on the counter,
“Another tall flat white.”
I’m having the same
drink as you?

I smiled graciously as you
beat me to the counter,
picking up the first cup.
As I waited for you to
claim your coffee,
I was (somewhat) surprised
when you handed it to me,
“I think this one is yours.”
I thanked you kindly
as my hand accidentally
(well, maybe) brushed
against yours in the
coffee exchange.
Oh, the potential for so much more
than just a shared coffee thing.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.
