A cup of tea - TWO!

When I asked her
If she wanted a cup of tea
She happily drank from my cup
And left me thirsty, vacant, empty!


A cup of tea
In her soft hands
Snuggled lovingly
As she draws in
Sweet warmth
In sip after sip
With pouting lip
And closed eyelids
Fills my soul with
Love, longing, myth!

A cup of tea
Held gingerly
As she whispers
Delicate nothings
Into my stupefied ears
I slowly swallow
Hers warm words
In measured breaths
Unsettling the rhythm
Of my heart, life, hymn!
