Eat Sleep Breathe

the-longing-71786

The smell of rain

Precedes you

To own my persuasion

Would be to shelter defeat

I cannot abide you

Knowing the pulse

That stirs your heart

Pauses for no one

*

Password protected,

My smile, undulates

Every time you enter

The room

Please don’t perceive me

Haunting you

Leave me

To these

Illicit impressions

My lips against

Your possibility

Repressing

Fate

*

You

Always impoverish

My advance

Without you

I lose the will

To surface

Each morning

*

My avoidant frown

Sickles

Amputates conversation

I won’t let you in

And as long as the sun

Goes on rising

I’ll carry you

Bittersweet

On tip of my tongue

Irretrievable

But never

Lost
