Oh my love,

my full-bodied queen

from the first moment I touched your smoothness with my lips,

I knew that I was yours.


I drink you in

and you flood my senses,

awakening my every nerve,

and filling me with your warmth.


Without you,

my days would be long,


unbearable things.


Oh coffee,

my dark, illustrious mistress

It is with you, I start and end all my days.

and to you, I’ve given my heart.
