Let me catch
your exhale †
in my lungs †
while tides †
lap against †
our bare feet,  

so that should  
I blink in this †
ephemeral moment, †
I have your essence †
indelibly captured †
in my bloodstream  

so that should  
my eyes be stricken †
with sudden blindness, †
such as plagues †
the rest of the world,  
I could still  
outline your  
your silhouette  
in minute detail  
with the  
capillaries  
feeding my heart  

Your facets  
in the sunlit ocean †
refract against  
my  
relentless  
desire  
and Iím left with †
oxygen-starved eyes,  
and gasping pores  

Because seeing you †
as you  
is unparalleled  
but itís not enough  

itís never enough.  

So, darling,
let me catch †
your exhale  
in my lungs, †
while tides  
lap against our bare feet, †
leave the imprint of your  

everything  

so deeply inside me, †
that I could

live without air.
