Air: A Love Poem
We lay together,
Reclined in dark,
Your silhouette outlined
By ambient light,
Or some residue of
I see your breast
The soft sighs
Of air flowing
In and out,
In and out.
“Common as the air”,
It is said
To describe the
A thing so commonplace
As to be unseen.
Yet, I love the air
And find it more
Valued than all
For it is the air
That expands your lungs,
Enriches your blood,
To make the skin, hair,
And bone of you.
To make more of you
I shall treasure
This animator of love,
‘Til the air in me
Stirs no more.
