breath

Vital for Me

Folder: 
1st poems

I’ve felt the electricity of your skin next to mine
I’ve experienced the rush when I’m next to you
My heart flutters like a hummingbird
Blood floods my face and I turn boiling red

I’ve tasted the chemistry
Between you and me
I know you feel it too

And other people have seen it as well
It’s really hard not to
Because I revolve around you
We are pulled together by gravity.

When I touch you
I die and go to heaven
You know how to light me up
And how to dim me down

So, what are we waiting for?
If we both want each other
Time is only wasting.

It’s you who I want
It’s you who I can understand
We read each other like books
I’ve read you back and fowards
And every word lingers in my mind
Like a lovely melody
With a diversity of notes
That have forever marked me
Each and everyone, with and individual tattoo
That only reminds me more of you.

Without you I can’t survive any longer
I need your estatic touch
And your velvet kiss
They have become vital
As much as air itself.

Mid-Breath

Folder: 
2003

You softly touch my cheek

My breath catches in my lungs

Kiss me, no need to speak

As we begin clashing tongues

 

Reluctantly we pull away

And stare into each other’s eyes

There is nothing we can say

 Only soft mumbles and sighs

 

As thoughts begin to come to mind

I noticed the breath I did not take

I take the breath I could not find

And breathe again for my own sake

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I acually like this poem. I find that reading it, you don't take a breath until the end.
