Choco-Hangover

 

Those dark circles
under my eyes?
That would be
Last night’s
Chocolate binge
Choco-hangover
Needing caffeine
From my
One cup a day
Coffee addiction
Morning haze
Brain fog
Eyes blinking, burning, stinging
Struggling to open
Focus
Failing
Wanting to stretch out
No one
To make coffee
But me
Cats haven’t figured out
Espresso machine yet
Need to teach them
Chocolate haze
Cocoa
Fading fast
No caffeine
Sleep
