My heart quickens
Suddenly I’m aware of my breath, the temperature of my skin
As if there’s a string inside me
drawing me in, pulling me tighter
I feel consumed at times by this desire
overwhelmed, it gives me pause
Can I make it another moment without you?
Could I make the moment with you into another?
Weakened by my want, I try in vain to sleep
my veins won’t let me, still pulsing around the current you send into my system
electricity that I cannot quiet, not without your touch
