I LOVE YOU
My breath catches in my throat,
My heart slams into the walls in my chest.
Blood rushes through my body,
Cutting a path unknown.
My hands & feet are cold as ice,
As chills wash over me.
My hearing seems to be sporadic,
As the waves of blood, beat upon my eardrums.
Dry as the desert sand, my tongue attaches
to the roof of my mouth.
I tremble, as if, I am suffering from a seizure.
The words rush out of my mouth and fingertips,
Like a damn releasing into itself.
Trying to release the knots of joy,
Binding in the inner walls of my abdomen.
I realize, that when I see your face,
You smile at me, kissing my lips,
Holding me, as if to never let me go.
Your words of love, freeing me and chaining
my soul all at once.
This is where I was meant to be,
Cascading, erratic, raw emotions of endearment.
I have felt you within me forever, for such a long time.
Right here, Right now,–You, me…
I Love You.
