One day without coffee,

only one day ...

After a few hours,

I'm trembling, my thoughts are blurry,

a headache is coming up

Is caffeine addictive?

just like nicotine

I always thought my welcomed

starter of a new day was harmless

Now I'm seriously considering

to add coffee to my survival kit


The moment I drink a few sips of coffee,

I retrieve energy, inspiration, and I start to

be my good-tempered self again

No way, I shall voluntarily deny myself

a decaffeinated day again
