Sleepy body and brain float

somewhere in that twilight world

where my heart is free

and love is simple.

I pursue you

through the deep water,

darting in and out

like a mermaid

as you watch me warily

and hide in the murky depths.

My lungs suddenly empty

and I struggle to surface.

You take my mouth

and become breath for me,

filling me with yourself.

Holding me

until I am calm

then you disappear

leaving me part you

and part hunger.

There is just

never

enough

breath.
