Eyelash Dew

Each day I take a sip.

It is a sip of eyelash dew.

But each sip is quite different.


Depending on how it is made,

Each sip can be,


Where I savour every drop,


Which stays even when I spit it out,


Where it keeps me up all night,

Or weak,

So the taste doesn't last.


Depending on when I take it,

When it's hot,

I burn,

When it's cold,

I freeze,

But when it's just right,

It is soothing.


Now from each sip,

My heart is almost full.

But I keep on sipping,

Until there is nothing left

To feel.
