ANONYMOUS – Papyrus Deir el-Medina -2

Papyrus Deir el-Medina -2

Finally I will drink life from your lips

and wake up from this ever lasting sleep.

The wisdom of the earth in a kiss

and everything else in your eyes.

I kiss her before everyone

that they all may see my love.

And when her lips are pressed to mine

I am made drunk and need not wine.

When we kiss, and her warm lips half open,

I fly cloud-high without beer!

His kisses on my lips, my breast, my hair…

…Come! Come! Come! And kiss me when I die,

For life, compelling life, is in thy breath;

And at that kiss, though in the tomb I lie,

I will arise and break the bands of Death.
