Breaking up with Coffee

Coffee has failed me.
Why, Coffee??
We’ve been intimate for years
We spend mornings together
You’re my favorite part of each afternoon
Sometimes, we secretly meet at dusk
You make me feel giddy and calm simultaneously
No one has affected me like you
But here we are
Entering the end of my ovarian cycles
And you betray me
You no longer cause me to feel awake and refreshed
Even double and triple visits with you Cannot keep my eyes open during the day
Giddiness has been replaced with sweat streams
Followed by soapy showers and dry clothing
I hope this passes
I don’t want to betray you with your decaffeinated cousin
My dear sweet Coffee, I miss you
But I must wish you
Sweet Adieu
