137 Seconds



137 Seconds.
That’s how long
I can hold
My breath.


As insignificant as this
fact may seem,
it is important to me,
because I found out.


137 seconds is how long it takes
When I see your face,
When I see your smile,
When I hear your laugh,
When you kiss my lips,
When we lock eyes,
When you light up my world,
When you empty my head,
137 seconds is how long it takes
to remember how to breathe.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

For the girl who takes my breath away.
