breathe

breathe

she knits her verses
into my heart
with melancholy thread
forever words
entwined in every chamber
which no palpitation can unstring

inhaling her poems
I exhale the metaphors she weaves
she is the falsetto of my sigh
the muse who resuscitates
for she writes the poetry
that I breathe

  1. Your move to Florida has not had any negative effect on your writing – such a lovely poem! I especially love these two lines – I exhale the metaphors she weaves; she is the falsetto of my sigh!

    1. Smiling. You are the first person to see it this way. There are so many wonderful writers and poets out there. We all take
      in the beauty of their words.
      Thank you for this gorgeous and thoughtful comment. I apprciate your sharing this idea. It was so appropriate for the poem
      and the feeling I was trying to convey. Thank you.

  2. …And perhaps she breathes the poetry that you write?
    A beautiful poem is like a silk gown, rustling across the floor, its tail an epic of mermaids swimming behind.
