strong



i am powerfully attracted to
strong coffee, strong whiskey
and strong women and
so far
strong coffee has never hurt me
although i may
drown myself in it, to
stay up thru the night
to face the morning
without her

because trying to sleep
is stupid
and trying to get over it
is bad advice

so what's to do?

when the person i'd ask
asks for space?

could i be the strong one
resilient, resolved?
remembering some mysteries
will never be solved

so make me a strong one
with whiskey and black
and i will be waiting
when that woman comes back
