tea with ink

Poet’s Choice of Tea

Today’s Specials:

Lemon Ginger
sunrise, gentle
and warm
in his arms, I wake.

his lips
I kiss, I bite
the delicious fullness.

Green Tea
Smooth soft
twilight evenings
filled to the brim.

his skin,
texture and sensation
fire, under my fingertips.

seeds we chew, together
holding hands, discover
rainforest wilderness.

Black Tea
aching, yearning
when we are apart.

his laughter
that rises
through my soul, stirs.

Earl Grey
misty, smoky
his eyes
my poetry, can wait.

You have been here to try and keep me sane-
Whatever sanity I still have left, anyway.
Right when I want to go insane,
You tell me, save it, for better days.

You let me lose my crazy mind
Only so that I can find it, one more time.
You tell me to think things through
Before I let my emotions stick like glue.

You keep me with my feet on the ground
While helping me rise up higher than I thought.
You brush my doubts away with a blown kiss
Like they are leaves, lost in a breeze.

You tell me to breathe, making me feel at ease;
It’s like I can feel my mind- finally settling down.
You tell me to let out all that’s in my beating heart;
And you pick up my broken pieces, working to put them back.

This isn’t a love poem-
And yet, 
It is.
