Essence of you

You tell me small secrets,
touch me in that special way,
laugh at private things
the world could never understand.
These tokens seem of little worth
but I keep them all
stored in my most secret cache.
With lover's alchemy I
have mixed your little gifts
and let them blend with echoes
of what I have given you.
The whole makes
a powerful draught
whose potency is
beyond the lore of
any enchanter.
And deep within me
to be my elixier
at times the world tastes sour,
I store the essence of you.
