“I’m oxygen and he’s dying to breathe.” Tahereh Mafi


I would ask nothing of you,
except a share of the love you hold
in the place we lie down together
and labour our breathing in unison,
to look into your eyes and know 
that precipice we both seek,
precursor to a tightly wound desire,
an instalment on finding that
whole experience again.
