Another Cup...--By Stela Xega--Albania

 Another Cup...

These days I think 
I only drink so much coffee
because my body desperately
wants to recreate the feeling
of warmth that I once 
got from love,
something to hold in my hand
that might even slightly
resemble your touch.

some days I think
I’m kidding myself
trying to exist without
a love that burns me.

because somehow,
I will always require 
a love that...

feels like fire.
