i’m in love (with) today

there’s the strong smell of coffee and 
faint traces of you mingling 
in every breath i take – 
all-too-familiar and so sweetly homey – 
i’m missing you but 
i’m feeling whole and not holes  
in my heart 
 
today 
 
everything is the right colour and 
with a rosy glow and one deep breath out later 
life is fine again.
