Another day, another time, maybe

She turns the page,
and coughs.
Coughs. Sighs, and continues
reading. I've never spent so much time
with one who breathes so loud...
except for these minutes.
The relative quiet is rather strange.

I realized today

that I've developed a physical addiction to coffee.
An unfortunate side-effect of loving the taste
and giving in.

My one true addiction, my worst habit,

is giving in.

Always has been.
