at the bottom of an empty cup

there’s hot tears behind my eyes
today they’re making me heavy
an empty coffee cup sits on my desk
my fingers trace your outline on it’s mouth
inside little pieces of grains stick to the sides
remnants of my heart you decided
were too bitter for your taste buds
I peer within the cup for a closer look
and hot water spills within making
salty black coffee of this jilted drink

at the bottom of an empty cup
