Coffee shop conversations

Tendrils of steam rising 
From earthy cups of caffeine 
In hot chocolate fudge 
Melting emotions converge 
When the heart is in love 
Coffee shop conversations 
Are warm, tender, pleasing
Like swirling shapes on a latte
Until they dissipate 
When feelings turn cold 
Just as the pale beverage
That has lost its allure

Longing

#FromOneLine ☆  Friday Challenge  ☆

I opened my eyes
To the blazing starlights
Wrapped in reveries of love
That once was wild and young
Now succumbed to words
Creating a yawning cavern
With unbridled harshness
No bridge to cover the distance;
That wayward moment beckons
With melting goodbyes
To let go of all the gripe
Follow the beloved
Where the paths diverted,
And in that sleepless night
I heard the creak of longing –
There was one shoe on the step

Dawn

In the fleeting darkness
Only dreams survive
On the chariot of dawn
That rises from the ashes
Of a horizon in cinders
Lost to the dying lights
Of lonely burning skies!
The dark broom of night
Sweeps away stardust
From under the canopy
Of a dazzling firmament
Slowly lost in the distance
