Morning armor

Coffee makes me invincible. But when the cup is empty, I return to mere mortal.

Having known you

Having known you,
I have lived fully
and so
am ready to die
not now,
but whenever in time.
And if it be in your arms,
all the better—
for the life of my heart
could enter your veins,
and since your soul and mine
are already one and the same,
I know that it too remains...

Selves

A philosopher lives in your mind,
a lover in your heart,
an alchemist in your soul.
