Vital for Me

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.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
