This is a poem I wrote in November 2011 for an art/writing project between my University ( Winchester) and the University of Lincoln. I've optimistically sent it off to twinnings..... the tea leafs will tell! enjoy...
You could say I am a necessity.
A welcome warmth.
A sanctuary for those early times.
You could say I hold a little bit of heaven, the nectar of life.
For some of you, I am with you throughout the day.
I have your touch.
I have your lips.
You could say I hold one of the world’s biggest drugs.
And I am the dealer.
As easy as you fill my world,
you empty it
and I am left, with dregs.
Your simple smile mirrors my own curves,
you hold me as if in prayer,
and I am grateful.
For you and I are one.
Without you, I would be porcelain,
still and boring on a shelf,
but with you I have purpose,
and with me, you have time.
So, choose your flavour,
and lets make liquid love.
