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.

Nine lines of sensuality.
Does it get any better than that.
Love the word flow.

Thank you dear, you too :) x
This was an engaging read from the title till the end. I loved your use of metaphors especially "your name being the cardiac massage upon my chest" that was a great one :)
The pic suits the words really well.

You're welcome, Kelly. Always a pleasure reading your works 😊
Now there is a thought on both love and art. Strange how they seem to be constantly connected. Rarely as well as this however.

It's a pleasure for me, knowing you enjoyed it. Thank you, Ken.
Your title grabbed me the second I heard it. Mixing poetry and love is a great way to embellish a poem but this--even though short--is amazing to take in and think about. Almost surreal.

Excellent poem Kelly.

So soft and gentle with a beautiful visual presentation to match. As always, your work shows a beauty in simplicity and brevity, using smooth words and natural imagery to create the atmosphere. I love the title too; it gives a nice first impression. Excellent work.
