As You Sit Here

As you sit here
Beside me,
Your arms
Surround my world.
Between
Fluttering lashes
I catch
My breath
Dystopic feelings
Masking
Utopic happiness
I sink
Deep
My secrets
Suffocating
Our happiness
Buried
Inside
Those wings
You gave me
Presents
Unopened
Pandora’s box
Awaiting
My hesitant touch.
I wonder if this is love.

beautiful, beautiful!

you write so eloquently.... getting so much across w/ just a small number of words.. this style is one of my favorites.

Thank you so much Tooners, and welcome to my 'blog'. I've been criticised sometimes for writing in this style but it's what feels more real to me. Anyway, I'm glas you liked this poem.
