Breath & Shadow

Spring 2013 - Vol. 10, Issue 2


written by

Jennifer Ruth Jackson

Your touch stark, electric

A million bells and whistles

Strong hands caressing me

Defibrillator paddles bouncing

My body to life

Each nerve on end

Rising up to meet you

Begging for an encore

Flooding me with such sensation

I could drown, uncaring, last oxygen

In my lungs used saying your name
