Singluar Breath - Poem by Amy Carr
and my breath is taken away
as I swoon in your energy,
wrapped in warm leather arms –
my heart is pounding so fast
I can hear it in my ears
like a metronome regulating
our...singular...breath – I gasp,
breathe your scent in
as we make love
standing still and clothed,
listening to the rush of life
all around us – and I want to blurt
out all my feelings, give myself to you
for good and all...but my mouth just rests
on the velvet skin of your neck...as
you crush me closer...
draw me in towards you – and that
smell, your smell, surrounds me...
drowning me as – slowly, tentatively
we relax...barely moving...the
statue of our bodies comes to life –
the blur, the people hurtling
around us – but we cannot hear...for the thumping…
please, god, don't let go (I'll die) and you
slowly release, take hold of my elbows, your
eyes penetrating my soul…they speak
so loud – screaming – where have I seen you before –
but I can't understand the language...
and just as I begin to understand – the words
suddenly coming clear as
you speak to me like music...
we let go.
