Behold Your Breath

Behold Your Breath

The moment I close my eyes
I profoundly feel you by my side
embracing my indelible scars

I feel your soothing hands holding mine
Your bewitching eyes gazing at mine
Your fingers tangled in my tresses

The moment I feel you in my veins
I feel you painting my suffocating soul
with shades of warmth

I feel your essence
casing my shattered core
I discover you effacing
the ravages of my soul
I perceive you weaving
webs of harmony in my head

Let me again plant desires
In this vanquished heart
Let me dwell in the ambience
of your pious heart
And flow in the veins
of your vivacious being

Let me free myself
from these fetters of agony
And wear your imperfections
as ornaments

Let your arms be my eternal refuge
And the lands of love our destination

I know it is all my imagination
But I don’t want to blend with reality
All I want is breathe, breathe and breathe
In your atmosphere of tranquility
All I want is to behold your breath
For it will be such a sublime delight to behold
