I was a filled cup,
Caffeinated love and hope,
On your arrival,
I was high for a moment,
And crashed when you departed
~ Eugenio Saenz Jr.


Haiku 16460

Our lives lose meaning,
When we place hate at the front,
Arrive with your heart ~ Eugenio Saenz Jr.

“Haiku 16457”
Wherever you are,
Wherever travels take you,
My love follows you

Coffee Cup Of Dreams

Oceans reflect the skies
Our faces in our eyes
You in my heart
But me in yours, dies

Life’s carousel we ride
When you left I cried
Our life slipped from our grasp
But I know, I tried

We planned out what we’d do
Made it all come true
At the height of our love
I no longer suited you

Now you’re there, and I’m here
Our parted dreams I fear
Have left me with a table for two
And a coffee cup of tears

~Eugenio Saenz Jr., Coffee Cup of Dreams (First Draft)
