Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

Written in the midst of a breakdown, capturing the feelings of one longing for the one they love.

I breathe in deep and breathe out your name.
It comes from deep within me,

Far past my lungs,

From the deepest parts of the inner hell

That characterizes my torment.

Twisted among the things I wish I could say,

I scream as loud as I possibly can but you’re still too far away.


Can you feel this fire

That burns deep within?

That of unmistakable desire,

Which scalds its host in the most profound way.

Though the burns it leaves are not for all to see.

The only souls they are meant for

Are those of you and me.


What I ask of you, my dearest,

Is to please let me know

If you can stand the thought

Of ever letting go.

Divulge your darkest secrets to me,

When your body is entwined with mine.

Whisper who you love the most.

Kiss me until the end of time.
