Used to Be/Still Are

I want to drink you down,
Just like that bottle of lavender syrup
The one you gifted me

-Purple & sweet-

Just like you
Used to be / still are
Somewhere underneath that lid of yours

-Sealed tight-

To keep your contents
From spilling to the earth below.

Or maybe…

I can learn to simply hold you close
To feel the vapor warm my cheeks
Like I do with the mug that carries on it
My sign, my fate,
The one you gifted me

-Frequently misplaced-

Yet always around when the time is right,
Just like you
Used to be / still are.
