Coffee House

Helplessly, I saunter in and step into the line.
Drawn inside by the most innocent and simple sign.
I reach inside my pocketbook and quickly rummage through.
Finally, a dollar, to get my morning brew.

Intoxicating, rich and dark, I never can resist.
Penetrating every pore just like a lover’s kiss.
The line moves ever slowly until I’m there at last.
Underneath a magic spell the precious drink has cast.

Eventually, with brew in hand I’m quickly on my way.
Secure in thought that I can now begin my hectic day.
Liquid treasure in a cup that slowly calls my name. 
Lost in sweet seduction, every morning it's the same.

    really excellent write Samia, really enjoyable read. its amazing how the simple things of life can give us inspiration to write about, some time ago sitting having afternoon tea thought about writing a poem on the subject which I did which sometimes happens. Well done again, Have a blessed day, Gordon

    Probably its because I'm a fiction writer, i don't know, I strongly feel of all poems I've read on poetrysoup, this is the most impressive. Not just about subject-matter, but about style and creative genius. Thanks, and kindly find time to coach my feeble attempts.

    Aint that the truth. "Helplessly" describes it. The old saying, "I'd walk a mile for a Camel," is true of coffee too. Enjoyed mucho. Love, daver

    Hi Sami-My goodness this is a great WAIT in a coffee line! Very enticing indeed! My son used to work at a coffee shoppe on the nicest side of town and he said the business women would come and pay 5 dollars for a big cup of coffee every morning and looked like a million dollars in their power suits! He really "loved" that job..hahah. ""Penetrating every pore just like a lover's kiss"".....exceptional poetry, gal! gwendolen

    Hey Gwendolyn, Yes, those coffee shops are really something else. I used to work in a building on 7th Avenue in NYC and there was a Starbuck's store downstairs. We used to buy the frapuccino's at 3:00 and run around wired all afternoon! LOL Thank you Gwendolyn. :)
