Coffee break

Coffee Break

The city burns with summer flames

And yet the crowds are cold as snow

They rush from to work and back

Their focused gaze forgetting all
I sit upon a lofty stool

Away from all the shuffling feet

A steaming drink awaits my lips

Adorned with patterns on its face
A fleeting art just like my life

My thoughts are torn: to drink or not

To bask in peace with endless joy

Or hurry on to empty days?
With heavy heart I gulp it down

The pattern fades like castles by

The heartless sea that washes

All the warmth away from me
