her gaze, disarming.
her blink, debilitating.

I twitch as if aching
for liberation
from paralysis.


her touch, haunting.
her grasp, alarming.

I shudder as if subsiding
into withdrawal
from a drug enjoyed.


my mind, sidetracked.
my lungs, hijacked.

she exhales a chill,
vicarious breath
and my throat quivers.


my heart, seduced.
my beat, reduced

to an echo of hers.
and i relish
the void.
