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.

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.

You are welcome dear Kelly.
A thought provoking one here Kelly. The picture seems to suggest the role plants have in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and emitting heady scents. But it could also be that the protagonist is mesmerised by someone they are attracted to. Flowing verse as always Kelly.

Actually, the plant had no play here. I was simply going with a thought I was lost in. As always, .. read more
