As I Metaphorically Breath You In

As I Metaphorically Breath You In

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers


 

I feel I could write forever

my pulse consisting

of syllables

and nouns,

your name being

the cardiac massage

upon my chest,

as I metaphorically

breathe you in.

Nicely creative & original! Each line very unexpected & smoothly crafted with strong imagery. As you mention early on, I kinda wished it would've gone on & on a bit more! *smile* Fondly, Margie

I was probably feeling a little prickly, too! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
Ooh, this is heavenly and quickens one's heart just as you describe the "cardiac massage." It feels like an inspired moment. This one you speak of is not physically present, but you can take a deep breath, think of him and feel his presence flood your senses and make your vitals pulsate with him as he invades you to oxygenate your blood and brain. He just became the source of your life just from that deep breath in of him. So delicious a thought! Well done!!

Clever use of grammatical and literary terms to conjure up the special relationship a writer has - through words. Full of emotional punch.

Beautiful graphic as well!

...it is a very special relationship, indeed...and I feel very blessed! Thank you!
Beautifully physical and sensual in both words and photography! " I metaphorically breathe you in"-a stellar visual. And as a nurse- i appreciate the somatic references even more...who am I kidding, it's the woman in me that loves this the most!:)

...thank you!
Why do I see the possibilities of unnecessary respiratory resuscitation as a good thing?

Don't stop until they fog up the mirror.

What better way to deal with your muse. Writing for some is a struggle to discover words and arrange syllables, while for others it second nature. Something done as sure as breathing. Well written, Kelly.

haha I always laugh on how you pull these gems off with such simplicity and finesse Kelly, and I wondered if you were breathing in a good brew of coffee.
