You are my ginseng
another ingredient in my antidote:
this conjuring of awakenings and borrowed wisdom that I brew at night
In the cauldron I keep under the bed
next to the mug with your name
No one knows about it
except for you, me and whatever spirits may inhabit the room,
over me when … naught but a shadow befriends me
You see these sorrows of mine have me speaking in past tongues
back to times so historic, I need to be at the present with you at a time so euphoric
If only you could feel in a moment
what you make me feel daily
could your body even contain the glee?
You’d need 2 or 3 clones
AS I’ve said, you are my ginseng
a treatment prescribed to me by Karma herself
because the beatings and betrayals I’ve endured
ensured that my reward would be a love that made every nanosecond worth it
And I will make sure to take a dose
Dedicated to my love.
