Tea and Poetry Tuesday

Today’s Tea Quote:

“Tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their sensibilities will always be the favorite beverage of the intellectual.”  — Thomas de Quincey

Melancholy Lady
by Kelly F. Barr

When her heart breaks
and her soul aches
and the loneliness sets in,
she longs for a tender touch,
a warm embrace,
and a passionate kiss.
An inviting smile
is all it would take
to make her feel alive again.
But none can be found
and she cries alone,
longing for home and rest.

One thought on “Tea and Poetry Tuesday

  1. Your poem is so sad!

    And, as a certified coffee drinker, I’d like to say coffee ranks up there as a favored beverage of intellectuals. (Or at least … semi-intellectuals. 😉
