Life in teacups...

Two cups of chai in front of you.
One, you drink. The other stays untouched.

"It still belongs to you." I hear you murmur as you push the tea cup towards me.

The waiter tells me it has always been this way. Two cups of chai you'd pay for, every time you stopped at what once used to be a regular haunt. Two cups of chai you'd now sit alone and nurse. Two cups of chai...since the day we left in opposite directions.

I laugh at the irony. But I still don't have the heart to explain.
I have always been a coffee person! :)

*grins* It's funny how sometimes people don't know the smallest of things.

Good one. Sometimes we change our tastes for someone we love...This was so good!

@ Red Handed
...or perhaps, simple things that are taken for granted might not always be true :)

Psst!!! The above was an altogether different line of thought. But I like the way you think ;)

Simplistically written but quite mind tingling and touching :)

Thanks :)
The inspiration behind this piece was drawn from an old man sitting alone in a coffee shop, gazing wistfully at two coffee filled mugs on the table in front of him...
