Coffee Cups Empty

I hover while you sleep unprotected –
as tears march slowly with beaten rhythms.

Your dreams unguarded, whisking memories –
where you were and now very distant.

Why are we lost to temptation, losers among
swimmers and pulsating waters?

Sorrow bared, coffee cups empty and lack of taste.
