In a Mid Night

Tastes like burnt coffee,
Metallic and scalding,
From the back hot pot,
Of the machine.
Bitter, never sweet.
Feels like the wind,
Whistling through,
Open car windows.
My favorite song,
Blasting on the radio.
Is a lingering look,
Just before we parted,
Halfway glances,
Revealing full truth.
Is my joy in yesterday,
My hope for tomorrow.
And the clock strikes twelve. 
(Hope you all don’t mind poetry! My creative writing course is noticeably influential! Always, Victoria)

    Beautiful poem. I enjoy your posts so much. You are wonderful young lady and your love for God shines through your writing. We were talking about you yesterday (with my oldest girl who has developed my writing gene – yeah!!) and how Christ shines through your writing.

    Praying for you.
