When I saw him standing there

heart flip flops and tiny deaths

who could breathe at time like this?

New dimension and reality restructures

suddenly the universe expands

Standing on the concrete floor

I’ve won the lottery glittery shiny costume jewelry

and I’m sparkling under his gaze.

No hurries as I’m finally home.

Time and time stands still.

Who needs to breathe at a time like this?

I’ve waited a million years

since you let me go in that other lifetime

your stardust leaving me; plain and dull and gray

and I remembered how you were ever mine

since before the beginning caught up in the ache

the passing of time, the forever of when you weren’t.

I’m dying to breathe at a time like this.

You stand there, my universe

just staring me down as time slogs on

daring me to move proof I live for you

Start this orbit, a slow course of revolution

spinning and tripping through space

I breathe at a time like this

just in time.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
