Paramour

Dark-Fantasy-fantasy-11562161-1440-900You kiss me back to life
With your everlasting breath
Foggy and indistinct
Yet perfectly pure
This conscious need
A scintillating exchange
Of undeniable heat
Burning me clean
When I wanted more
Your scent overwhelming
Your taste tantalizing
But only for a moment
This complicated dance
When you never let me lead
This pulling away
To drag me back in
And I hate that I love you
That you made me come alive
When I would rather die happy
Than exist only in your mind
This ghost you cling to
When there’s nothing else
I can’t help breathing you in
Touching the essence of you
Before you close your lips
And I suffocate.
