Morning Coffee by Madison Downs

Graphite stains the page
Stains cold hands
Pencil gripped like a lifeline
Dark markings hashed
Caffeine buzzes
Eyes are wide
Taking in the silver grey
The cup sloshes a dark black brown
Matching intense eyes
Eyes flecked with
Silver graphite and black coffee
Cold hands sweep across the page
Dark greys almost black
Stunning silver almost blinding
Trimmed nails surrounded
By the ragged cuticles
An angry salmon colour
The pencil drops
The portrait done the
Graphite stains the page
