Remember to Breathe

Exhale_by_fhrankeeRemember to breathe
She says at midnight
Wrapped up in my robe
All chiffon-covered
Sparkling like stars
I watch her lips move
But they make no sound
Testing my resolve
My breath is shallow
Like silent waves
Coming in to shore
As she smiles my way
Defeating the purpose
Like rain in winter
Steam rising from below
To fog the glass
Exactly like it would be
If I remembered to breathe
So I close my eyes
And drink her in.
