It started with coffee stains and a puff of smoke.

Smoke lingers in your tender lips

Ash stains were among your shirt

The sweet scent of caffeine

Was still in your breath

Coffee stains and cigarette butts

Were always your favorites

Somehow it made me close to you

The ambiance of the local cafes

Was how we met

For you were the local cool guy

And I was the insecure nerd

Coffee and Cigarettes

Made us close

Made us collide

In every puff of smoke

And sweet little sip

Made us breathless.
