Good Bitter

The perfect roasted brown,

Deep and smooth.

Bitter has a negative connotation,

But every morning

This cup makes me question why.

Perhaps it is the bitter man is a different beast,

Or perhaps, the world gives up on the bitter too soon,

Like a child having sipped from my glorious velvet bitter,

And thinking, after 20 years,

That Coffee is poison, without having taken a single sip,

in all those years.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
