Breathless

Breathless

I fall into a breathless heart,

and still, I lay so still to see,

the twinkle I dreamt of from the start,

a candle in your eyes for me.

My longing for you leaves me tired,

and cold, so cold I barely hear,

the gentle verse I long admired,

a timid sonnet to love from fear.

I am in love with a selfish dream,

so long as I close my heart.

When I wake I know it seems,

that by the truth-I’m torn apart.

I fall into a breathless trap,

with nothing to defend,

I make a fantasy mend the gap,

of a loveless solitary end.
