Goodbye Coffee Cup

It took me a second
To recognise that the tone
Of our story
Had changed
There was no rhythm in my
Words
When I eked out the
Drama through laughing lips
My hips are shaped
To this chair where
Once your lap held me
And I tried to squirrel myself
Down into a shape
That would please you more
It took me a second
To recognise that the tone
Of our story had changed
Because I was laughing
And didn’t want to
Spend more time
Than was necessary
With you in my head
With you on my lips
