Coffee Date


She cooly sips the smooth coffee
Held in slightly trembling hands
Not daring to put down the cup
Lest he sees her shaking

For now, She holds his gaze
Firmly with her own
Locked in a shared grin
Mirrored on both their faces

As she empties her cup
The last few drops escape
Dashing into her mouth
She briefly breaks contact
Retreating into her own thoughts
For a moment

She takes a deep breath
It catches in her throat
As their eyes question.
