Today while sipping my coffee i just realized how identical coffee is, to love. The enticing fragrance will draw you closer to it and will cast a spell on your mind to have a sip. The first sip that you take, and there, it will allay your restless mind, will soothe your worries . That which is lethal itself will at once give you the feeling of tranquility from this lethal world. It will enthrall you to an extent that you’ll get addicted to the drug. When you’re depressed it will make you feel better. You’re happy? It will add to your exultant spirits.There’s no melancholy you can’t allay, no difficulty you can’t superate when you have it.How similar is love to coffee. Everything seems so marvelous when you fall in love. The presence itself will seem so luminous that it will cover all the darkness you saw before, all the imperfections you saw in yourself, all hurdles you thought you’ll never be able to cross, all depressions you’ll never get over with. As time flies,you’ll realize you’re so deep into the ocean that there’s no turning back, you’re amidst the sea and its your life jacket , you just can’t do without it. The drug will cling to you like an adhesive, so glutinous you can’t separate it from yourself. That which once used to soothe your storms, now itself rouses a storm in you which cannot be controlled. Its enigmatic how coffee and love first protect you and then itself kills you. Such paradoxes which when taken excessively become a threat to our own self.The question which arises is that when we know its harmful for us in the long run, why do we get involved in it in the first place ?
The answer is, a moth knows falling in love with fire will eventually kill it still it falls for it. Does’nt it ?

  1. Love & coffee have got a good relation.
    I’ve seen that a lot can happen over a coffee, people have fallen in love. πŸ˜€ (Even more can happen over a drink, people willing to fall out of love.) Kidding.
    Beautiful post. I think all the drug appear good when they affect you slowly, love & coffee are both of a same kind. For some, luckily they don’t react inside.

    Still I feel.. overdose of love can kill.
    Thanks for posting!

  2. I don’t believe it.
    Coffee is cheating on me? It said I was it’s first love.
    *cries over a cup of coffee*

    Jokes apart, as a coffee lover myself, I can totally relate to this post to the very last word. Awesomely written. πŸ˜€

      1. No , you’re not. I could relate with most of the things you wrote and i think that’s the quality of a good writer. We as humans feel better when we see another human going through the same things as we did, we automatically develop that courage because we know we’re not alone in it.

      2. Writing is what we call a way to let things out. It’s the experience, the journey and the feelings bundled up because it’s easier to write than tell someone.

        Ok, you are being too kind. Thank you so much for that. πŸ˜€

        Yes, I agree. It is when we realize that there is someone who can understand what we are exactly going through and that we arent alone in the journey.

        Well, welcome aboard fellow traveller. Not alone anymore. πŸ˜€

  3. I’m not being kind okay , i’m just appreciating the talents that you have just like you did. Yes, writing does serve the dual role. First it serves as an elixir when we’re depressed and just like you said, its easier to write than tell someone. Second, it helps those who themselves are confused and cannot figure out what they’re going through, at that moment when you read something that completely describes your situation , its the best feel ever. (:

    1. You are generous, thank you. πŸ™‚

      Yes, I completely agree. That’s why I nag everyone I know to write.

      And yes, it’s the best feeling ever when one could relate their situation with others. πŸ˜€

  6. Well now I crave a coffee and it’s bed time….

    Must say, never has coffee taken me to a place as barbed as love. Coffee is a one way relationship and it works for me! Fun read, I wonder where Tea sits with you?

    Because it most certainly would be like love for me.
