“One day you will kiss a man you can’t breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.” 

― Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever

In the darkness I have my dreams
of a time when body and soul
came together to make a whole
These days nothing is as it seems
emotions run rife with extremes

But I recall glorious days
when in each other’s arms we’d laze
Lost in your kiss as the earth tipped
drowning in sweet wine of your lips
and today’s pain fades in the haze
